Re: A community continuation: BunsenLabs

Download sizes are likely to be pretty small, whatever method is adopted, because it will be nearly all text files: scripts and configs. The main exception is icon sets and wallpaper I guess.

Re: A community continuation: BunsenLabs

^Yes. Something different to CrunchBang could have been offered before "the end". The requirement here is to provide a similar experience to CrunchBang. So in the short term at least, a traditionalist approach would appear to make the most sense. There will be time for new fangled innovations later.

Having said that, Openbox is no longer in active development so we probably won't be doing this in ten years' time. Why not simply mug a pensioner now and treat yourself to a Macbook Pro? Let's face it, if CrunchBang is Philip's desktop then OS X is its most likely spiritual successor.

Re: A community continuation: BunsenLabs

When I made a Crunchbang lite remaster, I made several pipemenus for post-install options, and took them out of cb-welcome. For instance, no GIMP in the install, but a "graphics" pipemenu for installing GIMP, Blender, Inkscape etc. I also put LibreOffice in an "office" pipemenu. The same for browsers.

I like the idea of a post-install script checklist, instead of a series of screens

Re: A community continuation: BunsenLabs

I am very disapointed with this dicision. I am a huge fan of CrunchBang and use it on all of my computers. To see it go is a big disapointment. I even got others into using it. I know a ton that will be very disapointed. I will continue to use Crunchbang even if updates do not work. Again, very disapointed.

Re: A community continuation: BunsenLabs

One more note on theming...

As those who have followed the Monthly Screenshot threads have seen, I've been basically pushing out the same desktop with new color schemes to match whatever wallpaper I'm using whenever the mood suits me, it takes me less than half an hour. With the themes I've hacked together and an icon set like AnyColorYouLike or gnome-colors, it's really trivial. Rest assured, I can provide a whole rainbow of matching walls/themes/icons. We can make Bunsen the giant Crayola box with the built-in sharpener to shiki-color's puny 7 varieties.

Re: A community continuation: BunsenLabs

Agreed and if we set up a way to do user-contributed themes, walls, etc, we will soon end up with a bundle of different things to help new users start breaking the ice and learning how to configure their system.

Re: A community continuation: BunsenLabs

@damo
lol cool

If I could write that paragraph again,  I would probably have chosen any color but orange... point taken folks. I'm also fully aware of how quickly and how easily the theme can be changed to suit taste. Still, with all the work you guys are obviously putting into this project, it would be pleasing to see that work reflect those of you actively contributing to it and not just a carbon copy or continuation of the development of #!.

Just my two cents, for what it's worth.  smile
