Re: The Beginning.

A week ago I installed Debian Gnome + Openbox,
using a small part of CrunchBang packages (many are no longer needed).
I liked. Will soon be home to make a screenshots.

Re: The Beginning.

Unofficial non-free CDs including firmware packages not always work properly.
For example, after installing the system, you can only see a black screen.

Re: The Beginning.

Remember there was a xfce version of crunchbang, a lot of user-friendly gui tools.  Can still have a right click menu and shortcut keys, conky, no desktop shortcuts, or you can add shortcuts a menu start button.  Also I think there might be a window aerosnap up to 4 windows, (there was a ubuntu ppa for it I use to use when I used linux lite for a time).  Oh and builtin composite effects optional as well.

Re: The Beginning.

I really hate to admit this, but I have to say that pvsage is the only one I have seen actually do anything useful, and the one who has come up with the best and most workable idea for the future of #!. The "soul" of #! is the menus and themes (the rest of it is just Debian stable, admit it). A meta package, a tarball, or a post-install script could make #! out of any Debian netinstall.

Re: The Beginning.

@porkpiehat agreed. Graphics are really at the centre, and pvsage has put his finger on it.
Tweaking that stuff is not my forte unfortunately, but I really appreciate a nice-looking interface.

Meanwhile I can play with scripts, packaging...

Re: The Beginning.

May I suggest a different approach?
A modular post-install script to configure a minimal system to replicate #!'s look and feel. Each module would apply to different base distros, e.g. Debian current, Ubuntu LTS, Centos 7, Arch (might be able to get the ArchBang peeps onboard), openSUSE 13.1 etc.
Sounds to me like less of a hassle to maintain.

Re: The Beginning.

I think probably the most important thing moving forward, be that spinning up a distro with the same goals, or getting a crunchy install option in Debian itself, or whatever is that we maintain what I consider CrunchBang's greatest achievement the community it has fostered. I have seen it stated plenty on IRC that people "came for the distro and stayed for the community."

Whatever path is taken to move forward, maintaining continuity of this community should be a planned objective.
