Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 2 Released

Running Statler Alpha2-Openbox-i686 on Dell 530 desktop in Live CD mode.  (Celeron 450 single core @2.2 GHz, 2 GB RAM, onboard Intel G31 graphics and ICH9.  Cheap generic CRT.  Wired net, no WiFi.)

Boring.  Just works... smile

Since Xorg can't identify my CRT, I really appreciate having grandr and conky restart on the menus.  I sure wish other distros made it this easy to get a proper initial resolution.  ('buntus make this a real pain.)

Nit: fbxkb bound to the "GB" icon in lower right was not immediately obvious to me.  Would have preferred a menu item for keyboard selection with the other settings app menu items.

Since I run Debian Squeeze/Testing with XFCE as my main system, I'm really tempted to move my /home to a separate partition, backup my Iceweasel and Icedove profiles and install Alpha2 to HD.  Your Alphas are much more stable and polished than Ubuntu shipping product.  Debian Squeeze has been a delight for months, even though it is still undergoing frequent updates.

Ubuntu Gnome runs like a pig on this box and Vista Home Basic is laughable (needed for Netflix streaming movies).  Statler with Openbox is far more responsive and intuitive.  I tried XFCE on Statler Alpha1 and liked it, but I do prefer the Openbox version of Alpha 2.

Question: I know that Squeeze is going with Iceweasel 3.5.9, but I'm not sure that it wouldn't be better to move to 3.6.x.  Your thoughts?

Dumb question: I have a Acer Aspire One netbook (HD, not flash) and just don't care for Ubuntu Netbook Remix.  CrunchEEE or Crunchbang 10?

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 2 Released

Hi,  Is  there an easy way to mount   the  other linux  partitions  on the computer?
In the  past with pcmanfm  it was automagically done.  With  alpha 1  thunar  came into  picture because of general preference and the other  partitions on the  side  window  became unvisible. When I installed  pcmanfm  they worked  as usual. Now with alpha 2  eventhough I installed  pcmanfm and gigolo I can not get  the usual authentication even if i used  the root option. my user  is added to  the fuse group so is root.

Try using disk-manager to add your drives to fstab and mount them.

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 2 Released

Using Alpha 2 OB right now. My first impression was...
wow! script...

otherwise everything looks the same as Alpha 1, which is nice. Installed audacious, deluge and comix, change to my previous conkyrc and my lappy is almost complete. Gonna give thunar chance before installing pcmanfm.

Thanks for the great release smile

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 2 Released

Alpha 2  openbox version has a minor surprise for me smile  vlc  interface  is in greek alphabet smile when I switch to XFCE  it turns back   to regular us version, and when I switch  back to openbox  it just goes back to greek, I already set the general language to US  so this should not be happening.  I was wondering  if any body  else has the same experience or just me...  I appreciate  if some one  can direct me to how to fix it.

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 2 Released

ASUS 1000HEB netbook (think 1000HE, minus bluetooth), Unetbootin 471 with #! Statler A2 XFCE created in XP.  Still can't get past the "detect CDROM" part (using Text Install option).  Anybody have better luck?

Incidentally, should we have a different thread for comments, issues, etc.?

EDIT: Sorry to say, same result with Ubuntu-based UNetbootin

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 2 Released

Hi,

I downloaded Statler Alpha 2 last night and was impressed enough to decide to join the forum so as to learn more. _And_ of cause to get help as while I know Gnome quite well Openbox is totally new to me and I can see that there is a lot for me to learn. Openbox seems to be the sort of desktop I am looking for, one that does its thing but then gets out of the way and lets you get on with the job.

I have installed on my Dell Precision M6300. And this, despite being a powerful high end desktop still runs noticeably faster with Statler than it did with Ubuntu Lucid. I also thought the first time boot script for additional applications was cool. I was expecting to have to do the hard yards for Open Office, so was most agreeably surprised to see the script offer to do it for me.

To Philip and all those of you who help to make Crunch# I'd like to say thank you for your efforts. I look forward to having a long and enjoyable experience with Crunch# and the members of this forum.

Now to try and get my desktop exactly like I want it...............

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 2 Released

I installed CrunchBang Statler Alpha 2 Openbox version to a 1GB USB key using UNetbootin under Debian "Squeeze".
Everything went fine, no errors. I played with the live version for a while and decided to install it to my test partition on my Acer Extensa 5220 Laptop.

Install from the usb key worked flawlessly. This didn't work for me with the Alpha 1! smile
It took approximately five minutes. Very nice!
After that I copied my WPA2-key from another usb key, replaced dhcp with manual settings for
my wireless network and ... BAM! ... I was online!

I had no German keyboard layout by then (where is this language
icon I saw in the system tray during the live session?)

Next step: installation script
- check for internet... ok
- apt-get dist-upgrade... ok
- printer stuff... ok (I don't need it)
- openoffice install... ok
- SSHFS and FUSE... ok
- crunchbang multi-session... skipped
- development packages... skipped
Finished!

Next step: german keyboard layout:

sudo nano /etc/default/keyboard
Changed XKBLAYOUT="gb" with "de"
Rebooted and changed language at login screen.
German umlauts and special characters working!
üöäÜÖÄß@€¢µ

Once again great work!
Thank you, corenominal!!! big_smile

Re: CrunchBang 10 "Statler" Alpha 2 Released

Hi, I have been using Fedora with Openbox since I first saw CrunchBang Linux. As soon as final release it is out I definitely will change to #!. I love it and think it was a great decision to pass to Debian. Thanks for all the work done!

ASUS M51Ta - Hybrid graphics (ATI HD3200 + HD3650) - Fedora 13 + Openbox (#! style) -> Waiting for #!10. As soon as it's out I'll shift to it.
