New Debian "Jessie" Packages

$ sudo apt-get install openbox-menu

openbox-menu is a pipemenu to display entries in *.desktop files.
It provides a dynamic menu listing of installed applications.

You need to add the following to the file "menu.xml":

<menu execute="openbox-menu gnome-applications.menu" id="apps" label="Apps"/>

or

<menu execute="openbox-menu lxde-applications.menu" id="apps" label="Apps"/>

And

$ sudo apt-get install gnome-menus

or

$ sudo apt-get install lxmenu-data

That's all. Enjoy.



$ sudo apt-get install obsession

This package provides the following tools:

* obsession-logout displays a dialog where you can choose if you want to quit
   the session, power off, suspend or hibernate the computer.
* obsession-exit: this is the command line version of obsession-logout.
* xdg-autostart start automatically programs defined in /etc/xdg/autostart and
   ~/.config/autostart.

bl-exit is not needed.



$ sudo apt-get install gnome-system-tools

There are tools for managing:

- Services (services-admin)
- Date and time (time-admin)
- Users and groups (users-admin)
- Network options (network-admin)
- NFS and Samba (shares-admin)



$ sudo apt-get install doublecmd-gtk doublecmd-plugins

Double Commander is a cross platform open source
file manager with two panels side by side.
It is inspired by Total Commander
and features some new ideas.

Support for RAR archives can be enabled
by installing the libunrar0 package from non-free.

This package contains the GTK2 user interface.

Be excellent to each other!

Re: New Debian "Jessie" Packages

1. Thanks...

2. I'm sorry.  bl-exit is also a great thing!

2a. Folder ~/.config/autostart is usually used in LXDE.
xdg-autostart start automatically all that will find except ~/.config/openbox/autostart.
It does not work automatically. Do not worry.   smile

3. The main thing that it did not pull a lot of dependencies.
Else can offer gnome-disk-utility and gnome-system-monitor...

4. With the help of Thunar I lost 25 GB of files when I move them to NTFS partition.
I do not trust to him.  PCManFM does not have such problems.
Double Commander is possible to replace them both.
Maybe...

Re: New Debian "Jessie" Packages

This menu is fully automatic (id = "any" label = "any").
insert this line after "<menu id="root-menu" label="Openbox 3">" with a new line,  for example.

Re: New Debian "Jessie" Packages

Sure News Plus. PCManFM is higly recommended. Old Crunchbangers stick to Thunar from habit , and possibly because they can't figure out how to get "open as root" working in PCManFM. But no doubt, PCManFM is better than Thunar. It provides destyop icons in openbox, it handles the desktop and you can use it to set/change your wallpaper. Much much better than Thunar. PCmanfm also mounts every partition and disks easy as that, while Thunar has a big issue with it. Like with other things. Go for PCManFm, and just ask if there is something you can't figure out. No more Thunar for me, that's for sure. Terminator is also a waste of space. LXTerminal is just as good, and lighter. The same could be said about Geany. CrunchBang has never been a lightweight release, and Bunsen won't be either

A standard Debian LXDE install is much better than any distro you will find out there. Corenominal is dead on. Tweak it from there. It will be lighter and better than both #! and Bunsen. Sorry guys, but that's a fact. Anyone capable of doing a Debian netinstall, should never do anything else. The derivatives are only a service to those that can not do it themselves. That applies for my own distro, just as well as Bunsen. It applies to all and any derivatives out there.

Re: New Debian "Jessie" Packages

I actually agree with spacex... wow. I mega-support bunsen-labs, but I'll probably not use it myself. I've been modding debian installs for 4ish years thanks to #!'s training.

edit: also thanks for this OP, I was unaware of these packages!
