Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

The final thing, minus all the extra apps, is actually pretty much done, but it will take tomorrow morning to write it up intelligeably...
Looks a lot like Waldorf, works like Waldorf, tastes like Waldorf...

@Seabiscuit thanks for the kind words! Do not intend to rely on the #! repos. I've downloaded some stuff from them, picked it apart, tweaked some of it... For now I'm going to suggest just using a few selected #! debs that work as-is and 3 or 4 customized TinkerBox versions, installed locally (from a local repository - that's coming in part 2) but the choice of whether to bring in a bunch of config files and scripts as .debs or just to copy them into the system can be made later on. There's also faenza-crunchbang-icon-theme which I rather like, and have a local copy of, and cb-wallpapers, of which I like "velvet noise" but there is plenty of nice wallpaper in the world...

Anyway, no, no CrunchBang repository will be added.

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

@hhh I thought that thread was for talking about custom sessions, logins and the like...No? Then it's for anybody to describe their customized Jessie?

I'm wondering - when this is done it might be a bit long to put down in the middle of another thread, even if I cut out the chat. Maybe just put in a summary, screenshot and link to the full thing?

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

I meant for it tobe  about anyone's customized jessie setup, Openbox-centric, though, as that's #!'s WM. I'd merge this whole thread over there or vice versa, I was hoping to have one thread covering tips and tricks for setting up standalone WM sessions in jessie or sid. BTW, scrot in the screenshot thread or it didn't happen. tongue  Cheers!

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

Won't having everyone's details inthe same thread make it unreadable? How's anyone going to follow step1, step2 ... of this if it's mixed in with half a dozen different setups, each going about things in a different way?

Scrot coming today. it's already happened but I'm still catching up on the documentation.

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

A link to this thread from there would be fine, if this were to stay the somewhat "official" way of #!ing jessie. I'd just hate to see everyone creating new threads about how they achieved more or less the same thing, I thought one thread would be more productive. Merging future threads would be the solution there.

BTW, to you, pvsage, chillicampari, Sector11, Unia and lcafiero (is that right and I hope I didn't forget anyone?), a big thanks for doing overtime this week and PM me if there is anything I can do to help with the forum transitioning.

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

It would make it easier for me at least if different methods were in their own threads. As johnraff said, it is easier to follow a step-by-step if they are consecutive. For me anyway.

This might be a case for a separate forum section?

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

I was also hoping that if a few people were kind enough to follow the steps here exactly, and then report back on any problems they had (things like audio, mounting disks and usb devices...), it would help us pin down exactly which packages are (un)necessary, what system stuff needs to be tweaked...

So on with part three!

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

This is better than my own attempts.  tongue 

Amazing the use of a local apt repo. I would have never imagined using such a thing. So cool!

Cannot wait for the Part 4. Keep it going!

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

+1 Johnraff, ... which isn't -1 anyone in particular. Seems JR has opted to continue what he'd decided to do till the end and until he's satisfied, that's the +1. Anyone who wants to can consolidate however many approaches to whatever nixishness they want. Cross link, slap em all together etc etc to hearts content.

One thing just sprung 2 mind, "necessity is the mother of all invention". eh, eh ? big_smile

Vll n VlJR !

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

You can get rid of some of the blue by changing the hex code of "selected_bg_color" in Greybird's gtk2/gtkrc and gtk3/gtk.ccss files. I'm posting a few more tips in the other thread now. Nice work, looks crunchy!

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

At the moment I'm only running Wally in a virtualbox. The next thing is to put it in a spare partition on my laptop and see how it deals with stuff like permissions on usb sticks...

Meanwhile if anyone cares to follow the instructions from Parts 1 to 4 and reports any problems they have with the system that results, or differences* from standard CrunchBang Waldorf, that would be a big help in choosing the apps and settings that eventually go into BunsenLabs.  smile

* apart from not having cb-welcome atm

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

Yeah the whole gtk-3 themes things will probably deserve it's own thread. Some of the stuff going on behind the scenes in gtk-3.0 will seriously make you want to punt gnomes. Basically, my opinion is avoid gtk 3 themes that have been compiled if you go with a custom one. I ripped one apart with gresource last night. Got all the .css files but all the art is encoded in some way that gimp or any other image handler for that matter can't use. (LIke the images are now a binary blob). I did not try yet to see if imagemagick could make sense of it yet.
