Boron suggestions

With Debian Bullseye due for release very soon, we are focussing on getting the BL Beryllium release ready as soon as possible. This means that suggestions which require discussion and more than a few minutes of coding should preferably go here, to be considered for Boron.

Re: Boron suggestions

I assume it's the next release of Bunsen after Beryllium, because boron follows beryllium in the periodic table (if you jump over the big blue block to the right of and below it);

Re: Boron suggestions

I will repost here the suggestion that I mentioned in Beryllium and John recommends to pute in a new thread dedicated to Boron →

I see in last days a form to view images on terminal - xterm, and for see videos in terminal with a tools like →
sixel
lsix
img2sixel
https://github.com/saitoha/libsixel

I test in my actual system but I cant configure that i I can't do this work,maybe is an iteresting thing to add to make more atractive the terminal of our Bunsenlabs, in my opinion is very good.

I also use bpytop here and is great, there are also a gotop like htop but with other appearance.

https://github.com/cjbassi/gotop

In other way today I see a youtube stream about on openbox distro and a user cooment that the distro dont have any graphic tool to edit mouse sensitivity then I search on my Bunsenlabs to see if I find anything and I als donte see any tool, other user comment to install lxinput. (Maybe is a interesting thing to think also for people that use games).

Take a look if posible on sixel and if is interesting maybe come in the next release if the developers have time and like the idea to implement it in Bunsenlabs.


Thanks, I hope my suggestion is interesting.

Re: Boron suggestions

If I may suggest dialogbox, as a QT alternative to yad.
https://github.com/martynets/dialogbox

The dialogbox application is a scriptable engine which provides a fully customizable GUI dialog box with various widgets. The desired dialog box is built and modified by commands read on the standard input when the end-user actions are reported on standard output. It implements the idea of a GUI <-> text filter tool.

    The main purpose of this application is to provide GUI functionality to shell scripts or any other pure console applications capable to communicate with a child process via its standard input/output.

    This is a Qt application and it introduces all the power of Qt to shell scripts from command buttons through stylesheets and animations.

    Software Requirements

    This application is designed using Qt libraries, and you can select if to compile using the QT 4.8 or Qt 5 library. It must be portable across systems supported by the Qt libraries, but the author tested it in GNU/Linux environment only.

    To compile the application from the source code the following packages must also be installed on a GNU/Linux system - build-time dependencies:
    g++
    make
    libqt4-dev (only if compiling for QT 4.8 library)
    qtbase5-dev (only if compiling for QT 5 library)

It's in antiX' repo for debian 10 (Buster)http://repo.antixlinux.com/buster/pool/ … dialogbox/
Check out the usage, demos and examples:

Re: Boron suggestions

Is it possible to replace Ristretto with another image viewer?, as it is not possible to edit the images.

Re: Boron suggestions

^Yes it's very easy to change the default image viewer.

If your choice is one of:
eog eom geeqie gpicview gthumb mirage viewnior
then simply install it and remove ristretto. It will be set as bl-image-viewer automatically.

If it's not in that list then after installation, open Menu>System>Edit Debian Alternatives, go to bl-image-viewer, right-click "ristretto", then "new". Enter the path to the application eg /usr/bin/eog
This function of galternatives is a bit buggy, and if you can't set bl-image-viewer that way you'll have to read up on 'man update-alternatives' and do it via the terminal.

Or use one of the apps in the above list. smile

Also plays well with dark themes, just set it's own dark mode, and voila.

If you are on Lithium/Buster, you do not need to change image viewer.
No image viewer are able to edit images. But, you can from Ristrettos menu: Edit => Open with ..., send viewed image to gimp or other image editor.

Re: Boron suggestions

We gave some discussion to the best choice of default image viewer - there are many options out there - but finally went with ristretto because it's reasonably light and fast, and has a biggish developer (xfce) and user base, so should stay maintained for a while.

As with terminal emulators and text editors, the discussion of which is "best" has no end, so we try to choose something "vanilla" for default. As rbh pointed out, with ristretto it's easy to open an image in some external editor like gimp, and as I pointed out, it's easy to change the default application for something else.

But, suggestions are always welcome, and @exe thank you for yours!

I don't care what software we use by default, I"m just glad that I'll be typing "Boron" instead of freaking "Beryllium" soon.

Wait till  Tin...that's the shortest element name...and that's a LOOOONG way off...

As Tin is element 50, that has to be about 96 years out by Debian release standards.

Re: Boron suggestions

Every element has a 1 or 2 letter symbol. So none of them should be difficult to type tongue

If you want a newer version I would suggest looking in the MX Linux repos.
MX 21 is their name for the Bullseye based coming release and they already have nomacs 3.17 packaged for it.
