Re: Ideas for Janice

When I install a program, I'd like to have a openbox menu open up, and then select which it would fall under (like Office)

+1 to remove Gimp. It is pretty bloated...
IF vlc is not included...
+1 for systemd
How about replacing Grub2 with Burg? It's prettier and just as fast.
+1 for pulseaudio. Sometimes I just want to plug in my headphones and have music.
+1 for mplayer. I found it's playback quality to be great. Vlc had better performance though.
+1 for a lighter/faster (less memory and cpu) anything. For example, to play 720p mp4 on the pentium 4 I had to get rid of pulse audio. That little bit made just enough of a difference to work. Opened a browser, and half of my memory was taken. I like the functionality and simplicity of pulseaudio which I think outweighs its worse performance

Stay true to functional, simplistic (minimalist), and fast. smile I do like the prettiness though. On that note,

+1 for performance settings that disable more and more unnecessary performance hurting pretties.

Re: Ideas for Janice

Well, I have one addition that I think that Crunchbang should add, and that is a email-client like "Icedove". Of course I can install it myself, but with apps in almost all categorys, there probably should be one for email also. I just installed Icedove yesterday, and I really like it:)

Built in colour calibration software and monitor profiling  would be nice, like dispcalGUI and a settings option

Re: Ideas for Janice

I love using waldorf and it's been pretty perfect for me however is there a better alternative to compton and the unavoidable screen tears when using VLC?

Re: Ideas for Janice

Rather than arguing over preinstalled applications, why not just add them all into a big list in the post install script? That way many different applications can all be used while maintaining the #! experience.

Re: Ideas for Janice

not sure if this idea is in the wacky category...

a world file (like from gentoo).

the nearest thing debians have by default, a file full of the thousands of applications installed.  everything you've told to be installed, and all the dependancies and libs etc that got installed with them, and everything that was already installed ootb.

a "world file", would contain ONLY the packages you've explicitly (implicitly?) told the package manager to install.  you can then take this file, and tell the package manager to install all the packages listed in the file (and their dependancies).

maybe this would prove awkward to implement, idk if that would involve hacking source code, or just some clever apt configuring, but i'm sure it'd be easy to at least have an option in the post install script to install packages from a file.   ~ wont have the auto updating of the world file quite the same way, but at least folks could manually write their own lists, ready to plug into their fresh crunchbang installs.  ... could likely work out other means of automation script magic for the full gentoo-like world file behaviour later after this rudimentary package installation list idea.

a lot of us love crunchbang as "a blank canvas", a great starting place, with the perfect balance of convenience to light-minimalism, and then we learn many tricks, pick up many preferences...  i imagine this, and other similar plug-in-your-own-file-for-this-that-and-the-other portions of cb-welcome would be quite welcome to those of us who've had a case of crunchbangitis for a while. wink

Re: Ideas for Janice

One minor thing I would like to see, is the ability to press escape to close the exit window.
I'm sure the is a way on how I could do that myself and I certainly will look for it but it's just something that should be default IMO.

Re: Ideas for Janice

I think the default software is great great honestly for best ootb experience for a minimal distro for your basic computer needs.  I would like to see some of the features from modern distro's implimented out of the box (Aero snap with the mouse especially for both monitors I hear using wmcntrl you can do that for keybindings not sure for using a mouse with it though lxle linux uses it. hot corners and have the hotcornersrc in the settings menu and daemon in autostart.sh).  Also I kind of don't like the pipemenu's that give you the option to install things or not.  I would rather have the default software installed and let me remove them and make my own menu's like how statler was (unless it is something that is super had and complicated for users to install themselves).

Re: Ideas for Janice

Can we reduce Janice's size to be able to fit on a disc instead of a dvd? It's easier to get blank discs, plus they're cheaper than blank DVD's...just a thought.
