How to install Bunsenlabs without the netinstall script

Install the Debian netinstall iso, boot into cli and do

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

You'd notice that it could be jessie or testing netinstall iso. If you are using wireless look here; post #2

And then do,

sudo apt-get install policykit policykit-1-gnome xorg openbox obconf thunar obmenu tint2 clipit suckless-tools gmrun nitrogen conky-all compton terminator geany mirage synaptic lxappearance zenity arandr iceweasel wireless-tools firmware-linux firmware-ralink firmware-realtek firmware-b43-installer firmware-b43legacy-installer intel-microcode amd64-microcode network-manager-gnome ftp xfce4-notifyd libnotify-bin gksu galternatives xinput xsel xdotool htop fbxkb scrot xfce4-screenshooter ntp curl gparted gsimplecal fuse gvfs gvfs-fuse unrar unace unalz unzip lzop rzip zip xz-utils arj bzip2 p7zip-full bash-completion libnss-mdns gvfs-bin gvfs-backends python-keybinder xdg-utils rsync anacron usbutils wmctrl rpl cpufrequtils xscreensaver fonts-dejavu fonts-droid fonts-liberation fonts-cantarell fonts-inconsolata ttf-mscorefonts-installer gnome-themes-standard gtk2-engines-murrine gtk2-engines-pixbuf vlc vlc-plugin-notify lame pulseaudio xfce4-mixer xfce4-volumed pavucontrol xfburn volti alsa-base alsa-utils geany-plugins thunar-volman thunar-archive-plugin thunar-media-tags-plugin python-xdg python-notify flashplugin-nonfree gnome-keyring libpam-gnome-keyring at-spi2-core evince gnumeric galculator gigolo catfish hexchat transmission-gtk filezilla xfce4-power-manager ghostscript e2fsprogs xfsprogs jfsutils ntfs-3g apt-xapian-index hdparm hddtemp smartmontools uuid-runtime va-driver-all vdpau-va-driver

Here you may change above chosen apps to your beloved ones, if you so desire, before you click enter. You can have a lean install or fully bloated one. smile

And then do,

sudo apt-get --no-install-recommends install file-roller yelp gdebi lightdm

I have no idea why yelp is needed, though. I'm sure you can delete it.

If you stop here and reboot, you'd have a working Debian Openbox installation with the rightclick menu. If you know your way about Crunchbang, and don't want to be fixed to bunsen-configs or anyone's configs, you can copy and paste anything you want from your crunchbang installation or from bunsenlabs github repos, or make your own rc.xml, menu.xml,, themes, icons etc. 

Now, if you need the bunsen packages, you add

deb bunsen-hydrogen main

to your sources.list, add the bunsen gpg-key (instructions here and do

sudo apt-get install bunsen-common bunsen-configs bunsen-conky bunsen-docs bunsen-faenza-icon-theme bunsen-images bunsen-os-release bunsen-pipemenus bunsen-themes bunsen-utilities bunsen-welcome

Once, everything is installed, you'd have Debian jessie or testing (or even sid) installation with bunsenlabs looks.

What you get is a very reliable Debian installation. smile


Be excellent to each other!

Re: How to install Bunsenlabs without the netinstall script

To not to write all those app names in CLI by hand, first get the minimal Openbox installation on, do

sudo apt-get install xorg openbox obconf obmenu iceweasel tint2 terminator synaptic terminator

Boot into it, either use synaptic or terminator to install the rest of the apps. You can open iceweasel and go to this page and copy the whole lot of apps. smile
