config files in Crunchbang

These are the config files I use the most in Crunchbang:

tint2rc - tint2
conckyrc - conky
smb.conf - samba
fstab
rc.xml - openbox
menu.xml - openbox
autostart -openbox

Are there any others that I may have missed that I should explore?

What are your most often used config files?

Re: config files in Crunchbang

If you use compositing you might want to tweak ~/.config/compton.conf

Others that sometimes come up: (all in ~/)
.bash_aliases
.bashrc
.profile
.fonts.conf
.Xdefaults and/or .Xresources
.gtkrc-2.0.mine
.gmrunrc

and adding
.inputrc
gives you some more tweaks

None of these are necessary to edit, but if you have some free time and google a bit you might find something interesting.

always something more to learn!
is that like keyboard shortcuts for the shell?
can you tell me where to find some tips/documentation for it, short of reading the whole bash manual?

Probably better than man bash is to google it. EG:
http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual … -File.html
http://brettterpstra.com/2011/09/25/qui … putrc-fun/
http://ss64.com/bash/syntax-inputrc.html
and
http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=11355
http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic. … 94#p128194

FWIW, here's my .inputrc. I must have picked it up whole somewhere and uncommented what I wanted, because there are a lot of comments and unused code in there. Case-insensitive tab completion and history searches with the up arrow are what I use most. cool

# /etc/inputrc - global inputrc for libreadline
# See readline(3readline) and `info rluserman' for more information.

# Be 8 bit clean.
set input-meta on
set output-meta on

# To allow the use of 8bit-characters like the german umlauts, uncomment
# the line below. However this makes the meta key not work as a meta key,
# which is annoying to those which don't need to type in 8-bit characters.

# set convert-meta off

# try to enable the application keypad when it is called.  Some systems
# need this to enable the arrow keys.
# set enable-keypad on

# see /usr/share/doc/bash/inputrc.arrows for other codes of arrow keys

# do not bell on tab-completion
# set bell-style none
# set bell-style visible

# some defaults / modifications for the emacs mode
$if mode=emacs

# Case-insensitive tab completion
set completion-ignore-case On

# allow the use of the Home/End keys
"\e[1~": beginning-of-line
"\e[4~": end-of-line

# allow the use of the Delete/Insert keys
"\e[3~": delete-char
"\e[2~": quoted-insert

# mappings for "page up" and "page down" to step to the beginning/end
# of the history
# "\e[5~": beginning-of-history
# "\e[6~": end-of-history

# alternate mappings for "page up" and "page down" to search the history
# "\e[5~": history-search-backward
# "\e[6~": history-search-forward

# use up & down arrows to search history
"\e[A":history-search-backward
"\e[B":history-search-forward
"\e[C": forward-char
"\e[D": backward-char

# mappings for Ctrl-left-arrow and Ctrl-right-arrow for word moving
#"\e[1;5C": forward-word
#"\e[1;5D": backward-word
#"\e[5C": forward-word
#"\e[5D": backward-word
#"\e\e[C": forward-word
#"\e\e[D": backward-word

$if term=rxvt
"\e[8~": end-of-line
"\eOc": forward-word
"\eOd": backward-word
$endif

# for non RH/Debian xterm, can't hurt for RH/Debian xterm
# "\eOH": beginning-of-line
# "\eOF": end-of-line

# for freebsd console
# "\e[H": beginning-of-line
# "\e[F": end-of-line

$endif

Re: config files in Crunchbang

Interesting post.
I came across this while editing my dotfiles.
http://dotfiles.github.io/

I have #! installed on my desktop and most recently my wifes (now MINE!) laptop. Sixty seconds after she told me a few weeks ago, "sure you can keep my old laptop", I was booting into my install disk big_smile

I'm trying to find a reliable, safe way to share configs between my two machines. It's been challenging and greatly rewarding smile

This thread gives me some files to tweak, ha, thank you!
