Re: Change to Bunsenlabs

A reinstall is the safest way to go.

Re: Change to Bunsenlabs

There is no sanctioned conversion method at the moment, I'm afraid.

There was an unofficial script but it is unsupported and has not been updated to account for the new repositories (and it caused problems for several users anyway) so a re-install is the only way.

Find the latest ISO image here:

Re: Change to Bunsenlabs

I was thinking of the same way. To make sure, I will just do a clean install. Since I am already data capped, finding way to get a hold of the iso image. Welcome! smile

Re: Change to Bunsenlabs

Upgrade #! to Jessie, add the BL repos, install the packages. Copy the desired configuration parts from /etc/skel to your existing home directory, or create a new user profile which will use the BL configs automatically.

…this sounds like a reasonable way for people who reinstall every 5 years or so (have a Debian install from 2007 on my old laptop, still going strong).

Re: Change to Bunsenlabs

BL user configs are in `/usr/share/bunsen/skel/`

Except for `.bashrc, .bash_logout` which are in `/etc/skel`

Re: Change to Bunsenlabs

There is the transition from slim to lightdm to cover.

Also, the first time a user logs in with lightdm, if they have bunsen-configs installed, and they have no '~/.config/bunsen/bl-setup' file, then their user config files will be overwritten from /usr/share/bunsen/skel . Luckily, backups will be made.

Maybe converting from #! should be a new topic in "Distro Development" or... what would be the best place?
I'm thinking it might be possible to add an option to the netinstall script if all the necessary steps can be pinned down...

And welcome to BunsenLabs, crunchbangfan!  smile

With our categories, it would fit best in Userland>Scripts, Tutorials & Tips, though maybe a link post could be made in News & Announcements.

Re: Change to Bunsenlabs

Maybe we need to add a category under "Distro Development" for general BL development-type discussion, as we had in #!? It would be nice to keep "Scripts, Tutorials & Tips" clean, for stuff that already works.

Re: Change to Bunsenlabs

I am posting here cause I really need a way to upgrade from Waldorf to Bunsen while keeping existing configuration as much as possible.
