Previously awhile back just prior to the announcement of the "transition" in #! I set up a net install of testing with lxqt and openbox, but used xfce to jumpstart my install. Couple glitches. It has sat.
Being semi-satisfied with my wheezy #! on my big box, and satisfied with lxqt and openbox on siduction on the netbook, I wondered what to put on the 250gb hdd on the bigbox.
I will play for awhile, hopefully longer, with a wayland weston install with avoiding xwayland as a side-project. weston-launch works. I see that they are Bladerunner fans via right cliking on the panel and the names Roy Pris Leon Zhora appear.
Might have to wait a bit, compiling orbital (somewhat like fluxbox they say) is supposed to require QT5.4 Will see how it goes. No rush, just play.
