Re: Ideas for Janice

I highly disagree with removal of pulseaudio, stuff like HDMI output on my laptop works far better with it.

Re: Ideas for Janice

Change terminator to LXTerminal which has just basic preferences and starts much faster.

Re: Ideas for Janice

Also can Janice be like Waldorf but with added bits of coolness here and there? I really like Waldorf. I'm at that point where I now know which linux distro is my favorite and I can easily say that #! is my favorite. I'm really looking forward for Janice's release. How about you guys include Guayadeque Music Player to #! ? Just a thought (one of the best music players out there imo).

Re: Ideas for Janice

Hello Janice
Hello Corenominal
Hello all

When you hard install #! the partition manager is not good enough ...
You can't make difference between several same sized hardisks ...
                                         -:-
Abiword is not good, ok another one  could be better, that's important but these choices are already well done by corenominal or some other that are very clever ... after you can do what you want ... light is better ;-)
Thank you for your job, you have made what #! is today, an absolutly excellent distro

But there is one real challenge, the graphic drivers install !

Nothing to help this step

Graphic drivers install is a real problem each time you install on a different machine
Many users are lost when X doesn't start after a bad graphic drivers update, it happens when you try to install Nvidia drivers
Same problem with ATI that's not easy enough to install catalyst

Can something be done to help that step ? may be in 'Settings' or  'System'

Why do you need

sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /var/www

to get  http://localhost/phpmyadmin working ?

Definitely i prefer Geany :-D

For my Christmas i'd like a better partition manager for hard install and a graphic drivers installer  angel

Re: Ideas for Janice

He all,

My two cents...

1) keep it snappy (not necessarily the same as light weight)
2) +1 for pulse, it makes my Skype headaches go away!
3) +1 for Guayadeque Music Player: simple, full-featured and quite lightweight.
4) +1 for the post-install scripts.

Re: Ideas for Janice

We must keep in mind the context of a Live Environment, along with minimalism defined as "it is better to not install something, than to remove it after the fact."

I feel Guayadeque and friends will just add cruft to the live environment (You already have gnome player), and not everyone will use it post install.

I just ran through the cb-welcome script, it could benefit from a section dedicated to media players ITR wink

Re: Ideas for Janice

+1 lightdm
+1 vlc and gimp as postinstall
+1 Gnumeric and Abiword as postinstall option, together with LibreOffice or NONE.

That way the CB-iso should fit fine on a cd/rw...

But I don`t think that you should switch to "systemd" because it needs the newest kernels to perform  well. With older kernels there aren`t really anything to gain from it. It could even slow down boot. It slows down boot of  Waldorf with kernel 3.2.0.4, at least with my pc....

Don`t change Thunar either. As it is configured in CB-now, it is perfect. I`m also happy with Terminator, but perhaps replace Geany with something else, because I don`t like the icon for Geany, and it`s impossible to make tint2 choose another icon for Geany in the tint2-taskbar.  big_smile

Re: Ideas for Janice

I like it as it comes Waldorf, just add some programs by default, as:

-Thunar 1.6.2
-Shutter
-Deadbeef
-Gajim
-Pidgin
-Firefox
-Turpial

Re: Ideas for Janice

@gebbeth - Just curious: how would using a laptop affect your need (or lack thereof) for multiple desktops?

IMO, if you have a laptop then its probably a lower resolution than most desktop monitors. Furthermore when you are on the go you won't have access to other monitors so having multiple desktops is a nice alternative.

Re: Ideas for Janice

@anonymous
Because my laptop is old & shitty. It only has one VGA port that is broken. Also i just find multiple desktops messy & ineffective. But some people enjoy that kind of setup.

@ew
Of course i know it's easy to change the number of desktops. It was merely an idea, not an demand. Might as well been the other way around.

Re: Ideas for Janice

So a install script for nvidia and and/ati proprietary drivers in the settings or system menu and maybe add it to the cb-welcome script?

Re: Ideas for Janice

I may be wrong here, but it seems to me that the welcome script, at least in part, is what makes #! so special. The gist of what I'm getting from this thread so far, is that just about everybody would like a much more in-depth "welcome experience" with a bunch of options for what to load up on the system - both catering to the GUI and the CLI crowd.

Sound about right?
