Damn. It is kind of sad to see CrunchBang Linux being discontinued. It was one of the first non-Ubuntu distros that I stuck with and it was a great introduction to the world of Openbox and minimal window managers.

Anyways I wish you the best of luck in your future project corenominal and hopefully BunsenLabs will excel as an alternative/successor.

#2 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » What phones do #!ers use? » 2014-07-29 04:58:35

My current and first smartphone is an LG Optimus L9. I love Android but this phone is crap. 2GB of user accessible storage and 768MB of RAM. Sometimes I think having a good dumbphone is better than a cheap smartphone. If only the Moto G had existed when I got this phone.

Is there any good alternatives to the T540p without the known issues? I really like the rest of it smile

The HP equivalent would be the HP ZBook 15. I don't know how an SVA panel compares to IPS though. Going with Dell you can try the Latitude E6540.

#4 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Please guide me to a new exelent Laptop » 2014-07-24 00:09:29

Consider a Thinkpad T540p configured with the 3K IPS screen. The FHD (1080p) screen is not IPS unfortunately.

As a final note IMO this thread is getting a bit bloated and it's hard to keep track of the ideas mentioned here. I know corenominal is a busy man :-) but maybe it's time for a new thread or threads to discuss in further detail the subset of ideas that he's keen to actually include in Janice.

I completely agree! I don't think a forum is really the best medium for discussing feature requests. It would be cool to have something like a bug tracker where we could mark  and merge duplicate requests and vote on which ones we'd like the most. What do you think?

Perhaps UserVoice could be an option? Here's some examples of what it is like:

I would say it depends. If you prescribe to an interactionists' view of conflict, then there is both good conflict and bad conflict. You also have to consider the amount of conflict. Too little can be bad but too much is also bad.

The Crunchbang community might be a nice and family friendly hangout for people that needs that kind of belonging, to such a social group of like-minded people, but as a Linux-community, it's redundant.

Would you mind elaborating? To me the CrunchBang forums or community is self-describing. It's primarily for #! users though other users are just as welcome. Are there other Linux communities? Of course; there are many. Are they as nice or welcoming as this one? Some may be, some not.

As one example, people who write apps for a living rely heavily on smartphones. If smartphones suddenly disappeared, a lot of them would be in trouble. I think anyone whose livelihood or wellbeing would be significantly impacted by the sudden loss of cell phones could be said to rely heavily on them. I didn't intend to include anyone who just really likes twitter or email or whatever.

That is pretty obvious although I would add that any software developer also depends on users to buy or at least use said software. If only developers had smartphones, the market for smartphone apps would rather different.

I honestly believe that no one *needs* a smartphone. It's certainly handy for some, but there is no real reason, no necessity what so ever. But that might just be me, anyway.

There is a lot of technology that we probably don't absolutely need. Does that mean that we shouldn't have it? Does every technology need to be developed based on pure necessity?

It's a pretty nice looking phone, but $299 is too much money for a phone IMO.

And to think that is one of its selling points being around half the price of flagships like the S5, G3, or M8! If you are hurting for money, then I'd recommend a Moto E or a dumbphone.

* workspaces related:
hmm... I donno the tech behind them, but I had 4 or 6 of them on my ubuntu system, so 2 rows, 3 columns at max. And it was a charm for switching them, for the down row had like say graphical stuff, like inkscape or games or something, and the upper row had the more sophisticated stuff, like email, wiki.. so it was always like switching 'enviorements' on one key stroke.
..I am always like using 2 workspaces for a(ny) task. (so i need another 2 for a second task! but however, I am fine with 4 workspaces (btw the first thing i change after reinstall)). best example is for the use of idle (phyton interactive shell). I write in the editor, and I want the output on another workspace. I avoid using the mouse (which is charming on older thinkpads w/o touchpads), so tint aint the ideal option. besides it eats up screenspace.

There are Openbox keybinds to switch workspaces and you can install a different program for switching between programs too.

Unfortunately its still not clear what you want. Also what does <ctrl><alt>u do?

Soooo, I am always in Ctrl+2 mode.. there is a column, that says 'Type'. (the one that says the filetype.. ) It seldom has more then 8 characters in it, except for symlinks or whatever.. But it is always way to large.. Just 3-8chr long, would be cool, but no, its like super large, and i have to scroll hmm not nice. ..couldnt figure it.. tried it.. but

You can resize the columns if you wish. I think you can even resize it to zero (essentially hiding it) though I might be confused with SpaceFM.

* a grid of workspaces instead of a row.. i never really need it (i guess i got used to it, as it is what #! provides) but that is sometimes something, that i miss from ubuntu (and that is the only one thing..)

Could you explain this? I *think* whether you see your workspaces laid out horizontally, vertically, or as a grid depends on what program you are using to switch workspaces.

imp2021 wrote:

* python3 support per default, not to say that it is charming, but way more charming then python2..

Do you mean you want python3 included on the LiveCD? That is easy. However if you want python to link to python3, I think that is controlled by the Debian packages. Also having python3 as default might break some poorly-written scripts.

* the clipboard integrated in the background (of a single workspace or such, conky?) (donno, if the clipboard could be managed more intuitively)

Explain this too.

But one would think epdfview would show in a search:

aptitude search epdfview

That command seems to list all repos and all architectures. There was no i386/AMD64 version so you cannot install it.

My bad. I keep forgetting that Debian has an oldstable branch. I am so used to seeing Stable, Testing, Unstable, and sometimes Experimental.

#23 Re: Devel: CrunchBang 12 "Janice" » Ideas for Janice » 2014-05-28 02:10:59

Are you using Unstable? It looks like epdfview is only available for the m68k architecture. You can try grabbing it from Testing though.

BTW I have no idea what PDF viewer #! uses. I only mentioned epdfview to give an example.

#24 Re: Devel: CrunchBang 12 "Janice" » Ideas for Janice » 2014-05-27 23:46:08

Why do you need the path? Can't you just call the executable name and the path for the file? Something like

epdfview /home/user/Documents/whatever.pdf

If the Openbox menu doesn't like it, maybe put the command into a bash script and then point the menu to that.

#25 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » spacefm » 2014-05-27 22:02:38

It can still be used though and unlike SpaceFM, you wouldn't need to worry about GTK updates.
