Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

Seems to be working again, thanks.

I simply ran:

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

I extended the key expiry date by two years and uploaded to the gnu keyservers. It took an hour or so to take effect, but yes the above command now works to refresh your apt gpg key.

Sorry for the disturbance. smile

Finally! Got myself a brand new ssd, and put in my home BL work laptop, a Thinkpad T520, ca 2012. The installation of Lithium worked as expected without any problems. Everything is looking really sweet so far, I think I will keep the default setup for a little while. With time I will personalize it of course, but it feels like I want to get to know Lihium a little bit closer before I change things and radicalize to my personal preferences.

And you know what, this weekend I have a lot of time to get to know it. It will be a glorious weekend! big_smile

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

Hi all,
Just my 2-cent. Hope I'm in the right thread as it is my first post...

Installed on Raspbian Buster Lite (RPi 4 4Gb RAM). Added Openbox and a few utilities (LAMP, Synaptics,..).

Apart from a few obvious issues (no Intel hardware,... so I had to force the Meta package and one or two others), installed surprinsingly easily considering I'm not on x86 or AMD64 archs.
I actually downloaded the packages (the all-architecture ones) from the repository and installed them one by one.
Just have to be careful and make sure the dependencies are all there before installing a package (with dpkg -i). And find the arch-dependent packages (Debian or BL) according to the repository list. 2 or 3 hours work overall for a great result :-)

Rebooted, logged in and startx to go to GUI.
BL-Welcome script started as expected and no big issues there either. Still no arm64 version (but it's a Raspbian issue I guess). I could try to install it on Arch64 to see how it goes though.

For now, tweaked Conky and Tint2 a little (trying to figure out what config files are used and where they are... not always easy but hey, it's experimental, right?) and still fighting with bl-obmenu-generator... :-)

Very few issues so far (like nm-applet not managing Wifi connections but Wifi works - set in Raspi-config...) but not a big deal.

Overall, a painless install. I could only suggest (as quickly mentionned to Twoion) an "Arm" flavor (i.e meta package for all architectures) so that BunsenLabs becomes even more popular.

Next steps: install on Samsung Q35 and a 2006 Macbook. Will report when done.

Thanks to all the devs and keep up the great work guys.

Still in the usual places (~/.config) - and they can be edited from the Preferences menu wink

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

Hi damo,
Thanks for your quick answer.

For example, edited my .xbindkeysrc since the "Super+w" combination didn't work (changed "x-www-browser" command to "firefox" or "firefox-esr" but still didn't work...)
So still investigating this one...

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

You might want to check out man xbindkeys. Some people have found they need to force reloading the config (see the guidance in the "NOTES" section).

Obmenu was default menu in Helium.

In Lithium it is jgmenu.

Maybe you should run

 $ bl-user-setup --refresh

to get all current user-configs?

I would not categorise lithium as experimental, more testing...

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

@rbh, that was actually the command I was looking for:
I added a user and had no problem configuring the different settings but struggling with my root account (not that it's a big deal)... Looks like customizing configs is a little trickier (at least on my install).
For example, had to create the bunsen dir (and autostart) in /root/.config (like in my added user account) in order to get to something at startup otherwise openbox black screen hence my question about the config files...
Moreover, just tried the

bl-user-setup --refresh

but doesn't work for root ("aborting")...

Agree about the "testing" cat.

@damo, thanks I had absolutely no key bindings in my root account... don't know if that's normal behavior.
Checked man xbindkeys, found out that there is an xbindkeys_autostart line in my autostart file and had to copy an xbindkeysrc file from a user config (.xbindkeysrc copied to /etc/xbindkeysrc) in order to get key bindings but it works fine now. Just have to customize it to my likings.

And btw, 2006 Macbook flawless install (about 20 mn...) and working great (little slow because of the 1 Gb RAM but still fine).
Kernel panic with the Q35. Couldn't even run the live nor failsafe options, so went back to helium for now but still working on it. More on this discussed in this thread

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

The script usr/bin/bl-user-setup, is not suposed to be run by root.

The first lines of the script says:

#!/bin/bash
#
#    bl-user-setup: a script to populate a new user's HOME directory
#    using template files from /usr/share/bunsen/skel/

And continues further down with:

Normally this script is run automatically on a user's first login,
and inhibited after that by a flag file:
~/.config/bunsen/bl-setup

It can, however be run again by a user to update their config files
from a new version of bunsen-configs. In this case backups will be made
of any files which are overwritten.

If the user has already made extensive changes to their config files
it would be better to copy in new settings from skel by hand.

Are you realey login in to X as root? There is security problems with that. Better to avoid it..

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

Thanks for your help, rbh. Didn't even look at the script, just ran it to see what it would do (risky life... ;-) ).
Not a big deal as I said, I'm just customizing root a little (tint2, conky,..) but I usually log in as a user and use sudo whenever needed.
Also playing with a "test" machine, not in prod obviously.

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

IBM Thinkpad T43 1871-4AG Pentium M 1,8 GHz

Upgraded from Helium/Stretch in nov 2019, to Lithium dev repo/Buster.

Network Manager does not autoconnect to my wiffi.
In /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/**.nmconnection, I have the line:
    "autoconnect-priority=999"
Still in graphical UI I have to point to saved connection before pc connects.

xfce4-power-manager and nm-applet must be autostarted from ~/.config/bunsen/autostart

I now tested to run  bl-xdg-autostart --list, got following error:

$  bl-xdg-autostart 
  File "/usr/bin/bl-xdg-autostart", line 56
    print "Invalid .desktop file: " + path
                                  ^
SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'. Did you mean print("Invalid .desktop file: " + path)?

Line 56 in /usr/bin/bl-xdg-autostart:
    print "Invalid .desktop file: " + path
   
Edited bl-xdg-autostart acording to suggestions. Got new error:

  File "/usr/bin/bl-xdg-autostart", line 104
    print "\t ", str
              ^
SyntaxError: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'. Did you mean print("\t ", str)?

Tried to purge and reinstall package bunsen-configs. Got the same error, when running.

This machine is not often used.. Will be wiped when InstallCD for i386 is ready.

On PC installed with Lithium DVD, command "bl-xdg-autostart --list" works. But it lists more than one screen.
Command "bl-xdg-autostart --list | more" gives some error and no list.

Would it be very difficult to use Devuan instead of Debian for the next version of bunsenlabs? It seems that Systemd is eating up all Linux systems.

Bunsenlabs is a stock Debian system. If you don't want to use systemd then use a Devuan-based setup.

PS: Questions like this (which some might consider trolling!) should be in a different place eg BL & General Linux Discussion

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

IF I downloaded and installed Lithium in the last few weeks ( 3 weeks ago I think)

Is that step enough :

Then add this line to your apt sources:

deb https://kelaino.bunsenlabs.org/~johnraff/debian lithium main
Also make sure you add 'contrib' and 'non-free' to all the existing debian lines, something like:

deb https://deb.debian.org/debian buster main contrib non-free

Or I also need to do this :

Now you can get a rough Helium/Lithium clone by:

wget https://kelaino.bunsenlabs.org/~johnraf … um-dev.asc
sudo cp lithium-dev.asc /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends bunsen-meta-all

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium repository has been set up

The lithium-dev-4-amd64.hybrid.iso, is from 2019.12.09. It is the latest development version of Lithium iso.
It is anounced here: Lithium test iso available
If you use that, you now do not need to do anything more than install.
When Lithium goes from devolopment staget to stable, you need to edit sources.

* You can also use the development reopos at https://kelaino.bunsenlabs.org/~johnraff/lithium-dev.
1 You can install Debian Buster without X, import apt-key for Lithium dev (https://kelaino.bunsenlabs.org/~johnraf … um-dev.asc), edit sources to use Lithium dev, add all bunsenlab metapackages.
2 You can upgrade from Helium to Lithium. Also then you need to import apt-key for Lithium.

This is correct. If your sources don't get set up correctly (you cannot update the system or download Debian applications) feel free to report it here. We can always split any lengthy discussion to a different thread if necessary.

That happens if you install without internet connection. You have to manual edit sources.list and add your prefered debian repo.
