Re: Debian Sid Openbox Based Desktop Guide

Hi jelloir,

this is one of the few pages I put into my bookmarks. Haven't read through it all, but on first sight it has everything inside to get up and running. Thanks for sharing. If you wish to add information about the Input Methods (eg. East Asian languages) and the display of these fonts, I can write you something about it.

Best wishes

Re: Debian Sid Openbox Based Desktop Guide

@machinebacon, thanks!  I have added this to the Openbox Installation section.

I will work away at formatting the guide when time allows so it's location will probably change in future.

I am going to update the guide with Console based alternatives to the GUI based apps I am suggesting for those people who really want to go CLI.

Lately, pretty much the only GTK app I run is Iceweasel and I'm feeling really comfortable with it.

Re: Debian Sid Openbox Based Desktop Guide

May I recommend xxxterm as comparably light browser alternative? It's from the ScrotWM guys, a bit more full-featured than conkeror or uzbl, but slimmer than the weasel and more stable than midori.

Re: Debian Sid Openbox Based Desktop Guide

@baconmacon: Thanks for the Korean fonts. At least you know all the needed Asian stuff. smile

After installing Debian, one of the first things is to install the Asian fonts, I do not speak any of the Eastern Asian languages but I have Chinese friends, so that is important for our university work as they have access to one of my machines.

Re: Debian Sid Openbox Based Desktop Guide

Impressive is a word I rarely use but will this time.  Updating to either Debian Sid or Openbox is not on my to do list but if it was your HOW TO would insure that I got there with all my questions answered.

No, I thought you were planning something like this.

@jelloir: Impressive article. I had a look now at it. Some people are really talented.
