Re: How about Fluxbox instead of Openbox for BunsenLabs

@ hudson

Had you searched the forum, you would see that #! Statler came with Xfce4 "as well", OK, not what you're talking about.  #! is and always has been an "OpenBox + tint2 + simple conky"  combo.  It was successful enough that others copied it it's what #! was and where Bunsen is going.

Like hhh said:

sudo apt-get install fluxbox pcmanfm && sudo apt-get purge OpenBox thunar

... and you'll have BunsenLabs the way you want it.  Except I see you have Debian8 with FluxBox so you're happy.

Come to think about it I wonder how many people installed #! and used it out of the box without tweaking it.  I certainly didn't.

Your suggestion would probably be recieved with even less inthusiam if you joined the Debian Forums and suggested they drop GNOME in favour of "fluxbox and pcmanfm".

Now saying that... stick around and read a bit, you'll see that people here have a tendency to try a variety of things ... like fluxbox, pcmanfm, and spacefm

Oops. I have released 3.6.1 now, with no other changes than bumping
the .so version and release version in configure.ac. I also took the
liberty of uploading a .xz version of the tarball, if anyone prefers
those. .gz will still be available for the foreseeable future.

Re: How about Fluxbox instead of Openbox for BunsenLabs

When I first became interested in Linux not long ago, it was the Openbox aspect of Crunchbang that enticed me to Crunchbang. It's not flashy like that which catches the masses, but for doing a lot of computer tasks quickly and efficiently it works better than anything I've tried. I always go for simplicity and elegant if possible.

Re: How about Fluxbox instead of Openbox for BunsenLabs

I have to admit FluxBox is nice, but we're an OpenBox community here.

I'm using Fluxbox ATM on my primary system, which I built from Debian Jessie, but certainly there is no other WM for BL than OB!

Re: How about Fluxbox instead of Openbox for BunsenLabs

Fluxbox can be pretty nice but as they are saying CB Bunsen are an Openbox kinda deal. And yes there was once CrunchBang with Xfce. I liked that one and ran it for quite a while.

I'm surprised no one here has mentioned Antix. It's one of the nicer Debian-Fluxbox systems.

Re: How about Fluxbox instead of Openbox for BunsenLabs

OK, lets stop this trolling & flaming.

It was a legitimate question ... it was answered.

Getting FluxBox in Bunsen is easy:

sudo apt-get install fluxbox

but Bunsen comes with OpenBox just like CrunchBang did.

End it please.

I never -remove/-purge Openbox - just it be -- I just Fluxbox WM over it (either by the Synaptic Package-Manager or by Terminal and apt-get)
I can select which WM/DE I want from Slim or LightDM.

I'd have to use apt-get - I have been removing synaptic for years now:
