Post install settings and tweaks

Post install settings and tweaks

Set Screenresolution

  • Start "ARandR Screen Layout Editor" from the menu or command "arandr"

  • Set your prefered resolution (and screen order if morethan one monitor)

  • Save your settings as ~/.screenlayout/screen.sh

  • Open thunar filemanager and copy the script

  • Open your autostart (from the menu => Preferences => BunsenLabs, opens the file ~/.config/bunsen/autostart)

  • Paste ~/.screenlayout/screen.sh, in autostart, just after ### SETTINGS START

Comment:
The saved script is in the format:

xrandr --output {screen name} --mode {window size} 

If you switches between single and dual monitors, you can save script "2screens.sh", copy it to ~/bin to easy active the settings.

"ARandR Screen Layout Editor" is a graphical frontend for program "xrandr". "xrandr" can be run in scripts or in terminal.Se "man xrandr", for more options.

Autologin
Note: autologin can be a security risk!

  • As root, edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

  • Under heading "[Seat:*]", search for line "#autologin-user="

  • Uncomment it and add username for user to autologin.

Last used session will be used.

Re: Post install settings and tweaks

It was a very good idea to start this thread!
I'm sure we've all got things stored away that could be added.
I'll see if I can remember anything...

Re: Post install settings and tweaks

This could be made a sticky once it's all complete with all helpful info for a user to do some post-install setup and tweaks smile

Re: Post install settings and tweaks

Let's collect ideas here, and when we've got a good set, either delete all the unnecessary stuff (like this post) or else copy out the good parts to Documentation > Getting Started.

Re: Post install settings and tweaks

For displaying docs, if they are in $HOME/Documents and have .txt extension:

#!/usr/bin/env bash

function showdocs (){
   yad --plug=$$ --tabnum=1 --list --item-separator=" " --column="Docs" \
          $(for f in $HOME/Documents/*.txt; do [[ -f "${f}" ]] && echo "${f##*/}"; done) \
          --select-action="bash -c \"echo -e '\f' ; cd $HOME/Documents ; cat  "%s" ; echo -e '\n' \"" \
   | yad --plug=$$ --tabnum=2 --editable --text-info --listen &
   yad --width=600 --height=440 --no-buttons --on-top --paned --splitter=200 --key=$$  \
          --tab="Selector" --tab="Preview" --orient=horizontal
}; export -f showdocs

showdocs

They use force, to make you do, what the deciders, have decided you must do!
