Looks good. How stable is labwc now?
May try to build it on Void if I get some time.

Re: October 2020 Screenshot Thread

^ I lived in downtown Baltimore (28th and Maryland in North Charles Village, a block away from the Wyman Park Dell) for about six years, from '95 to a few months after 9/11, 2001, I think till February 2002. It was a blast. I wouldn't want to live there now. Trump was kind of right, it's become a shithole. I talked to some Baltimore locals who were visiting Charleston at the beginning of this year, right before Covid hit, and they said the city was fishing murder victims out of the Inner Harbor every weekend.

Re: October 2020 Screenshot Thread

Nice wall.  The old bladerunner is great.  Some things are just blasphemous.  The new bladerunner, Star Wars, ghost in the shell, true grit.  I hope the new dune is solid.  I thought the old one was kind of lowsy compared to Frank Herberts books.  I did think the Mandalorian was pretty cool, only thing from the new stuff worth watching.

Edit: Rogue One and Solo were cool.

Re: October 2020 Screenshot Thread

After enjoying the semi-tiling functionality of winfuncs, decided to try a genuine tiling WM.

bspwm, stock polybar, still very much learning the ropes....   but fun so far!   Running as an alternative WM on my bunsenlabs.   Whenever I get stuck or freaked out just reboot into bl-openbox.

Specifically, Ridley's Final Cut, the video and audio restoration and digitization is incredible. I thought the new Blade Runner was OK the first time I watched it, really great the second time, but it's not a movie I will watch a hundred times like I have with the original Ridley Scott film (any version, they're all great). I play Final Cut regularly, just as an ambient media source. Background noise. The film is a lucky stroke of genius.

Speaking of a lucky stroke of genius film...

I tried Pop_OS on my laptop before settling back on Archlinux.
I did like it a lot, it seemed to fit like a glove.
But in the end, you cannot replace that old, worn leather jacket with a designer jacket, however well designed it may be...

Kinda going in a similar direction currently:

I don't usually like distro branding, but this is just too nice not to use, and goes well with Yaru colours.

@sloth @ohnonot

Xubuntu 20.04 is a great distro.  You can remove all the snap stuff unless you want chromium.

The only complaint I hade about any debian based distro is the use of “recommended” packages by default.  It’s impossible to know what’s installed with the way recommends work.

Pacman and dnf are a lot more predictable with the way they do dependencies.

@phuturism

Thanks.  Keep us posted with your endeavors.

Oh yeah. I was afraid to try Linux/Ubuntu until Wubi came along. That's from, what, Feisty, maybe earlier, running on Windows XP? Some decent free software for the time.

Re: October 2020 Screenshot Thread

What tipped me over the edge to GNU-Linux was trying to set up a pirated version of Windows Media edition so i could record digital free-to-air tv.   after doing the install the cracked password didn't work so a friend in IT at work put me onto MythTv on linux and the rest is history.   Lesson learnt - using free/open things is often better than using stolen things

There was a lot of trouble when install-recommends first became the default setting (it can be changed of course) because developers had been setting anything they could think of as a Recommends of their package - things that now should be "Suggests". I don't think it's so bad now. As to knowing what's installed, surely 'apt-get install <package>' always asks before installing anything you didn't ask for?

According to Debian Policy, Recommends should be packages that it would be "unusual" not to co-install, but still leaving users free to opt out if they want. That's what BL do with inter-package dependencies and I think it works OK. Generally packages draw in what they need to work normally, but a user who wants to cherrypick can do 'apt-get install --no-install-recommends ...'

Re: October 2020 Screenshot Thread

@John

For sure.  Good overview man.

I was speaking from the point of view that if you install a debian based distro you have all this stuff installed and if you uninstall something it still leaves packages behind that were recommends.  The only way around it it to debootarap and build it up from scratch and configure apt to not do recommends or pass it at install time.  Then if you do an uninstall it will remove everything you intended to install.

I’ve been running Xububtu mostly this year.  I use Arch, BL and Fedora though to do cross platform testing though.

My theory is to never uninstall anything that the base install has, but to configure apt to do no recommends after the base install then you can confidently uninstall anything you add etc.

This would be the same approach that I’d take to BL as well.

The trade off of such a solid base a debian distro can provide vs not knowing exactly what you got installed is acceptable to me.

Of course you could figure it out if you tracked down every recommends but that kind of defies the point of the convenience of debian.

Anyways that’s just stuff I’ve contemplated more than is important.

That's annoying, agreed. The remaining recommended packages should all be marked as automatically installed, and I still don't really understand why they aren't all offered for removal with 'apt-get autoremove'.

Yes, it's a playoff between convenience and control, as usual. Today's huge drives make it easier to just leave things installed, but it's certainly not ideal.
