Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Devuan looks interesting maybe the BL netinstall magic script may work (albeit with possibly some tweaks) with a Devuan based distro. Must not hurt to try BL on a Devuan base and I might try it in a VM.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Zenwalk 15.0

http://www.zenwalk.org/

Based on Slackware Current July 2020, w/ Xfce 14.4

One app for each task. Just too many tasks covered, for my taste. Dozens and dozens of apps. Would like to see a minimal version. Was snappy and responsive on my older Core 2 Quad Core w/ 8GiB. Installer was not really for beginners, but not hard either; a text-mode dialog-based installer.

Wallpaper changed from stock  to this one, which was provided. Also turned off desktop icon layer for access to right click apps menu. Stock theme and icons. Three panels, system tray (upper right), Whisker Menu (upper left), and window buttons, (vertical on left side)

@8bit

Excellent work!

Personally, I don't like a surplus of apps either.
Also XFCE has never really been my case. But this wallpaper is stunning.  cool

Thanks for sharing.

That works, and it's lovely (as the title suggests). Downloaded, I might theme this one. You should post it to 'Artwork and Screenshots>Wallpapers'

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

siduction with Plasma 5.19.3 (because Debian is still at 5.17)

Screenshot_20200709_095235.th.png Direct-Link

I have the ISO from here (there is no more recent one).

After checking the md5, I installed to disk. Please note that the calamares installer is broken on the ISO. You have to use the cli-installer.

It took me two tries. big_smile The first one went wrong, because I did not update the new system at first. I immediately set up the new repo's of Nobert Preining and then did the update (437 packages were updated and 20 removed).

After the second installation I updated the system first. I updated 771 packages, reinstalled 21 and removed 3 packages.
Then I set up the repo's from Norbert Preining and updated the system again. 155 packages were updated and nothing was removed.

There are a lot of apps and tons of settings. After rebooting the system has a RAM consumption (according to Conky) of 570MB.
And ps_mem.py

A nice gimmick is the dock LATTE, which Norbert included in the repo based on the hints on his website. It works similar to Plank and is easy to configure everywhere.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

has just been tested again:

if you have logged on to the Live-Iso as user "siducer" and the password "live", then the text installer appears after entering the command the cli-installer

sudo cli-installer

OK, you found it...  big_smile

Good luck.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Void - Xfce

https://voidlinux.org/

Installer was not really for beginners, but not hard either; a text-mode dialog-based installer.
First boot after installing showed error: FXCE PolicyKit Agent. And every boot thereafter.
Prt Scr key created an error: xfce4-screenshooter not found. Installed it.
Enabled the right-click menu, (openbox was one of my first DE/WM) Got rid of the MAC-like panel at the bottom.
Connection Established popup repeated every second non-stop. Firefox could surf the web but not sync.
I usually stay with a distro for a few days, but I'm giving up on this one. Too many errors.
And on a personal note, I don't like the package manager. YMMV.
