Re: Congrats on the new release

Again: congratulations! Now I can finally recommend BL again to my friends  smile

And, I hope that when Debian switch to Buster, waiting time for BL-Lithium will be a bit shorter.

Thanks devs!

Re: Congrats on the new release

In live-usb mode Firefox is very slow. Does it get better after full install ?

Re: Congrats on the new release

A big thank you to everybody involved. Specially the dev team of course. Plus an extra thank you for the tty log in feature.

@Pink Unicorn, normally yes, in my experience.

Firefox in BunsenLabs is the standard Debian Stretch Firefox. In fact, BunsenLabs is pretty much standard Debian Stretch, with some configuration added.

It's normal for most apps to run slower in live mode than after a hard disk install, especially if booting from a CD-ROM. The less RAM your computer has, the bigger this difference tends to be.
(Very small live systems on a USB stick will run quite fast on computers with plenty of memory.)

To me 2GB is the very minimum RAM to get reasonable speed from a USB stick and USB sticks boot faster than CD/DVD.

I have 3gb ram and I use 8gb USB-Stick. I have tested many distros. Only in  BunsenLabs Helium Firefox ESR is very slow. In previous BunsenLabs release Firefox in live and full install worked very well.

Re: Congrats on the new release

Wonder if Sid s Firefox Quantum s version s faster than ESR s version. Got it installed , seems faster but nothing to measure it actually.

Re: Congrats on the new release

I just did my first install which was as smooth as ever.

Just wanted to point out one minor thing but to me just makes the default look that much better.  Tint2 isn't the full width.  Just adds a really nice touch.

Re: Congrats on the new release

I did two installations:

bl-Helium_amd64+build2.iso and the
bl-Helium_i386_cdsized+build2.iso

Again I have no possibility to set up two accounts in both CLI installers
for user and root. I consider that a serious shortcoming. sad

The non-PAE iso works for me on an old TPx40 to surf and email gently, as I expect with this weak hardware. It beats the current antiX17 from the hard disk.
The amd64-iso installation has again convincingly become the main bootloader of my now 5
other distributions.

I like the look very much. To my taste, none of the others achieve this harmonious harmony on the desktop. Great! Great! Many thanks to the team.


I have two problems with the usual facility:
These are keepassxc and palemoon.

keepassxc is apparently only available in unstable and at
palemoon, I can't get the key installed with sudo. Maybe I'm doing something wrong and there's an easier way:
With the repo

deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser/Debian_9.0/ /

I get the clue I'm looking for

NO_PUBKEY 0FAD31CA8719FCE4

-->  https://www.heise.de/security/dienste/K … 74468.html

and get to the key server.
However, with sudo in the terminal I get

sudo gpg --recv-key 8719FCE4
[sudo] Passwort für unklar: 
gpg: directory '/root/.gnupg' created
gpg: keybox '/root/.gnupg/pubring.kbx' created
gpg: /root/.gnupg/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
gpg: key 0FAD31CA8719FCE4: public key "home:stevenpusser OBS Project <home:stevenpusser@build.opensuse.org>" imported
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1
sudo gpg --export --armor 8719FCE4 | apt-key add -
E: This command can only be used by root.

Is sudo root now or is an extra sausage being roasted here again?   ops

Re: Congrats on the new release

Having a root user login is a security vulnerability and it offers no additional functionality. you can login any time as your regular user, assuming your regular user is a sudoer, and you can type “sudo su - root” to get a full root shell.

Re: Congrats on the new release

Just wanted to say congrats. I haven't had the chance to install it yet, but I will soon enough.

Re: Congrats on the new release

unklar's post and everything after should go in it's own thread. The last thread I tried to split went a bit wrong and I want to enjoy a few beers and listen to music, @johnraff or HoaS, kindly take care of it?

I know (at least I'm fairly certain) there's a way to not format swap with the Debian installer, but I'll have to check that later too.
