"One man, one desire ..."

I will try to document the manual approach to post-banging the Jessie, work in progress:

Re: postbang

I would like to add that I had to edit /etc/sudoers and uncomment the sudo portion to get sudo to work. I usually install my greeter prior to openbox (in my case slim).

Re: postbang

@brontosaurusrex:  I like that you're taking a ground-up approach!  The Debian installer can never seem to "find a default route" on my system, so if I were to try such an approach, I'd have to work from the DVDs...which is actually one of the possible projects I was thinking of tackling this weekend.

I'm looking forward to seeing how your project progresses.

Re: postbang

When Testing is in freeze, some packages have a way of disappearing and reappearing during the release-critical bug shakedown.  I remember mpd was one of these in Wheezy.

Whether ffmpeg returns to Jessie or not, chances are that it will still invoke libav-tools, with a message along the lines of "ffmpeg is deprecated, you dummy", just like it has in Wheezy and Squeeze.  I'd just install libav-tools and be done with it, or add the deb-multimedia repo and get ffmpeg from there.

rm /etc/network/interfaces

You should not delete the interface file as it also defines the loopback interface


nano would probably be the easier editor for the unskilled to use rather than vi

Thanks, fixed the interfaces part. As for text-editor, one should be automagically aware that it can use geany/nano/whatever as well, no? (I'am using "vi" as a metaphor and it is short(er) to type ...)

Very cool. Perhaps you can put all user based configurations from ~/.config (openbox, terminator, tint2, ...) to global /etc/xdg .

The idea is that one should start and stop with pure Debian Jessie, would that still hold water (if i populate /etc/xdg)?

Hmmm...I've never thought about this.  I'm assuming this suggestion could be applied to a bunsen-openbox session?  (Do the major DEs do this?  I'm only just now glancing at the Arch wiki page on Xdg user directories and google results for "debian packaging policy /etc/xdg".)  If so, that might help us "sell" this upstream.

Re: postbang

Joe90; Did you compare the config files, like for example;

wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/brontosaurusrex/postbang/master/.config/terminator/config | diff - ~/.config/terminator/config

will return

16d15
<     background_type = transparent

for me (which means I changed exactly one setting in terminator, since applying the git config).

pvsage; I have read your post 3 times now, but can't decipher the meaning, you will have to refraze.

Re: postbang

Doesn't work ?

This command in your howto

cp -b .config/terminator/config ~/.config/terminator/

only creates a file called terminator in ~.config/

Whereas as your check command is looking for a ~.config/terminator/config file - which I don't have

wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/bront … tor/config | diff - ~/.config/terminator/config

Running the command on ~/.config/terminator returns nothing, just back to command prompt. I am going to try renaming terminator to config and create a terminator directory to see what happens smile  THAT FIXED IT smile

Something missing or I have missed something along the way smile
