Re: The Beginning.

Sounds like a plan, I have loads of time on my hands and nothing to do but tinker with my computers.

Re: The Beginning.

I agree. If #! can stay the way it is, with the infrastructure in place, then that would be a plus.

Re: The Beginning.

I think someone on the Debian development team (wait, isn't Philip Newborough on that team? devil ) should sponsor a CrunchDE package.  It would be like LXDE, but with Tint2 and Conky configured OOTB as they are in CrunchBang.  Also, it would include the Openbox menu and would not have desktop icons by default.

Re: The Beginning.

What about someone working within Debian to provide Openbox as a DE option in the installer for Stretch (Debian 9)?

As far as I understand it, if someone was able to do the actual work it could be included. There is no policy limitation on the number of DEs that can be included in the installer.

The only snag would be that a) Debian likes vanilla packages and b) Openbox is not a DE. So a configured Openbox DE may be out of the question.

Re: The Beginning.

I'd love to see Crunchbang live on in some way.  And hell, I'm not installing Unity anytime soon.  Consider me interested.

Re: The Beginning.

@pvsage That's...a really cool idea.

I remember once upon a time when I was undecided about what distro to use (a long long time ago) I read a comment how #! had translated the "Unix-y feel to the GUI using conky and tint2". It's a style and a community more than a distro. *sigh* I guess only time will tell how it will find a way to live on.

Re: The Beginning.

If such a CrunchDE package were to exist, that would be absolutely amazing! I have neither the skills nor the time to make that happen, but if/when it does happen I will be very happy smile

Re: The Beginning.

Long time user and forum lurker here, subscribed just to post this.  I'm up for helping out in any way I can.  I've got lots of experience with writing and maintaining technical documentation, and I've also been learning quite a bit about Debian packaging lately.  I'd love to work on any successor to !# blessed by its original creator, and built by the community that currently exists.

Re: The Beginning.

CrunchDE (#DE) has more oomph than DEbarchery, IMHO.  big_smile

Re: The Beginning.

Well, I'm in as long as we can maintain the original #! objectives of stable, fully-featured and lightweight.  This, I suggest, means that the distro/DE needs to remain on a Debian Stable base, rather than Debian Testing.

This means, of course, that considerable development work needs to be done to upgrade our current Waldorf to Janice due to the current changes in the Debian Stable base from Wheezy to Jessie.

Of course, brave souls can still play with Testing/Unstable/Experimental etc but I do recommend that the "main" release remains Stable.

Re: The Beginning.

Debian Jessie already comes with OpenBox de, although not a patch on #!, so it's part way there right now
