I installed Bunsenlabs! What do I do NOW?!!?!?

What should I do next? I need to find some tutorials on learning how to use openbox. For instance, I can't seem to figure out how to get 4 workstations instead of just 2? How do I change the shortcut keys? I can adjust the conkyrc to make the shortcuts show a different command,but I can't actually change the hotkey. Do I changed something in rc.xml?

Be excellent to each other!

You look in the main menu of course! Plenty of links to Openbox help and HowTos there, including "Edit rc.xml"

Still, what all can you do with Bunslabs? CrunchBang is all about being customizable right? So what are some really cool things to do with it once you are up and running?

I am assuming that conky is a obvious choice, but what else can you do to make bunsenlab faster, customized, and awesome?

Re: I installed Bunsenlabs! What do I do NOW?!!?!?

The upstream Openbox documentation is some of the best around:
http://openbox.org/wiki/Help:Contents

To make BunsenLabs faster remove gvfs, udisks & udisks2 and write some udev rules for automounting.
http://www.reactivated.net/writing_udev_rules.html

Oh, and replace Openbox with DWM:

Thanks! I didn't notice how much info was actually in the help section. Bunselabs has really done a great job.

TBH you need to search the forums, read the Openbox wiki, follow the Help/HowTo links in the new main menu. Everyone has a personal choice with what tweaks they want to do, so find out what you want to do first.

Every question you are likely to have has probably been answered here before, so please use the search tool at top right of the page first wink

I'm also interested in learning how to set up tiling windows. Can you do that with bunsenlabs?

Re: I installed Bunsenlabs! What do I do NOW?!!?!?

Okay I swear I searched for this before I decided to ask this question, swear.

So, after installing bunsenlabs in the future will I need to reinstall it when it is past testing phase or can I just update any changes that they make to the distro?

One of the hopes is to be able to be able to do an apt-get upgrade, if the bunsen-specific stuff can be hosted as deb packages or meta-packages.

ATM you can use the upgrade script, which just gets the most recent changes and saves a lot of time....

$ upgrade-bunsen-pkgs --help

Upgrade BunsenLabs installed packages by rebuilding from
GitHub repositories, or add other repositories.
Options:
-h|--help - display this message.
-u|--upgrade - download latest repositories if newer,
put built .deb files in local repository
and upgrade with apt-get.
-a|--add name1 [name2...] - add other repositories and
place built .deb files in local repository.

(I think it is in ~/bunsen-netinstall-master )

Re: I installed Bunsenlabs! What do I do NOW?!!?!?

Okay I'm just going to use this thread to unload the mass of confusion that I'm experiencing.

So I am trying to auto login?

Do i add this to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf:

[SeatDefaults]
autologin-user=<YOUR USER>
autologin-user-timeout=0
user-session=ubuntu
greeter-session=unity-greeter

Re: I installed Bunsenlabs! What do I do NOW?!!?!?

I am also trying to change a hotkey in rc.xml like this:

  <!-- Keybindings for running applications -->
    <keybind key="W-r">
      <action name="Execute">
        <startupnotify>
          <enabled>true</enabled>
          <name>Run Program</name>
        </startupnotify>
        <command>gmrun</command>
      </action>

However, this didn't change the hotkey from alt+F2 to Super+r

Did you do openbox --reconfigure? (Settings -> Openbox -> Reconfigure)

Good point. And how come the Arch wiki has more important info than the Debian one? (Rhetorical question BTW)

Re: I installed Bunsenlabs! What do I do NOW?!!?!?

I KNOW IT'S ME BUT THIS ISN'T WORKING. sad

[SeatDefaults]
pam-autologin-service=lightdm-autologin
autologin-user=jack
autologin-user-timeout=0
session-wrapper=/etc/lightdm/Xsession

In /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf I entered the above code to the bottom of the file changing username to jack. I then

# groupadd autologin
# gpasswd -a username autologin

and just got the login screen. When I tried enter name and password it just rebooted the login screen so I had to go into recovery and delete the suggested code.

What did I do wrong?

Try removing (or commenting out) the "pam-autologin-service" and "session-wrapper" lines.

What did you do with those lines?
They are commands which should be done as root, so did you do

sudo  groupadd autologin
sudo gpasswd -a jack autologin

I think I did it that way. Eitherway it is working now and I have almost finished customizing my bunsen!!!!
