I agree, IMO if one looks at the more main line Linux distros running GNOME (especially) it is getting more and more like a Windows then a Linux. Just to get more people using it. I am surprised being that this is a free OS how do they really make their money to even motivate them to wanting to make it "easier" for more of "them" that have never tasted Linux use Linux?

with apt-get and yummy and all of the other ways the main line distros use to resolve dependencies for main programs to be installed is that not easy enough?  letting them be too lazy to even type in the sudo or su or su - when it is needed then exit to get out when they are done using them permissions?

too much work for the noobies. as we can clearly see that with any laziness the security of anything falls away.

which is sad in someways because the noobies will never learn what Linux really is. Instead they are essentially just keeping a pseudo Windows OS that they got for free. you can download a torrent and Get windows for free and software --  wink  (so I have read roll  )

perhaps even one day they'll forget that they're in (SU) sudo and type in the wrong thing then end up deleting half of their system before noticing it.

Linux is Linux a unix based Operating System, and needs to stay so. if person do not want to even put in a little bit of time to embrace that challenge of learning how it it done on a "Unix" system. then let them stay with Windows or what ever it is that Apple has to offer.

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

Hi, is there a reason why following these instructions on Testing I have black and white tray icons while with Stable battery and bluethooh are not black and white?

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

Wally was just a stand-in until BunsenLabs got going.  I don't have an answer for your issue.  You might try installing BunsenLabs, change the repo to Testing, dist-upgrade, and then see if you still experience issues.

CHEAT SHEET

If you find it a bit hard wading through all the discussion, here are the commands you need to run. It's not a script, just a list - print it out, or have it open in a browser.

CHEAT SHEET

This is not a script! There's no error checking at all.
If you try to run all these commands in one go you'll very likely hit a problem half way through and get into a nasty mess.
Run them one at a time, and make sure things are OK before moving on to the next.

OK, starting from a bare Debian Jessie netinstall:

Hi, thank you for this cheatsheet.

But for Part 2: http://packages.crunchbang.org/ this url doesn't work any more and I can't get the packages from there.  Is there some alternative to get these packages?

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

From the first post:

NOTE:
This was a development tool, and has now been superseded by the BunsenLabs releases for anyone except those who want to experiment.

If you want BunsenLabs, there is an RC1 release on the new website BunsenLabs

If you still want to experiment with out-of-date #! packages you may be out of luck. It looks like @corenominal has now taken his repos offline.

Hi--thanks.  I don't want to use BunsenLabs because it's not using Testing packages.  I'd just like the desktop environment from the old #! on Debian testing.  Do you, or anyone else, know how I can do this?

Re: Wally - a Waldorf replica on a Jessie netinstall

If you have/can get a Waldorf iso, you could copy out the configs from it.

The themes are in `/usr/share/themes`;
backgrounds in /usr/share/backgrounds (I think);
user configs in `/etc/skel`;
tint2 was broken anyway, so install the one from the repos;
some of the pipemenus won't work;
lots of other tweaks I guess.

If you can install Waldorf: remove tint2 and tint2conf, change sources.list to testing, comment out the Crunchbang sources, then cross your fingers and dist-upgrade!

I think it would be easier to install BL, and change the repos to point to stretch/testing. BTW BL has fixed some of the bugs that CB had.

If you have further questions, then it is probably best to post in the Crunchbang section in the new BL forums - this place may be closed for new posts soon.
