deuterium

I don't know if anyone else here is doing this, but I'm still running BunsenLabs Hydrogen (originally installed from the Deuterium iso) on one of my older laptops. It's my slowest computer, and I don't use it much, logging into it only a few times per month, updating the system, running it for a day or so.

I did download Helium, and I have it on a flash drive, but I never got around to installing it -- partly because I already had a very nice Debian Stretch (w/ Openbox) installatin on another laptop, and partly because this Hydrogen/Deuterium installation works fine and serves its purpose.

I haven't customized it all that much. I added DoubleCommander to use instead of Thunar, and made a few other changes here and there, like going outside of the repos for Pale Moon and then Firefox 63 to use instead of Firefox ESR. Customized the desktop and the menu a little bit.


My sources.list file is set up as follows:

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian jessie main non-free contrib
deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian jessie-updates main contrib non-free

My /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bunsen.list file still has the following, but I don't know if there's anything coming down the pipe from here anymore:

deb http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian bunsen-hydrogen main

Anyway, just wanted to mention that I'm doing this, and that this has been a very solid release for me. Not sure how long I'll keep it; I'm thinking that I'll hang with it at least until Lithium gets finalized, then decide what to do at that point.

Re: deuterium

Thanks. Does it matter if I comment out the bunsen-hydrogen part or not?

Re: deuterium

Leave it enabled and report any issues that arise. Thanks, you're now a tester!
