Re: New ISO build to try!

Thank you so much for looking!

Broken:
Right-click - Debian - Settings - Desktop Preferences
Desktop Manager is not active.  (maybe used by another WM??)

Nothing is Broken! smile

All of the (active) settings for Lilidog can be found under Utilities in the menu. 
What you found are the settings if you use the pcmanfm desktop (for icons, wallpaper, etc).

If you would prefer to use icons on the desktop, enable __pcmanfm --desktop --profile__ in Lxsession autostart.


???:
Right-click - Debian - System & Utilities
Three ways to start Thunar that all looked the same to me.

Thunar is the default file manager and as such, will be opened under default names like "File Manager" from the Debian menu, which is populated automatically, or with the command

update-menus

in a terminal.  Not really a Lilidog issue.  The Debian menu is included as an extra only.

Not found:
A way to change wallpaper (GUI)
Those s̶k̶u̶l̶l̶s̶ rocks are not for me.

Sorry you don't like the rocks.
Feh sets the wallpaper directly in lxsession autostart rather than pointing to ~/.fehbg.

After installation, you may want to change this to

~/.fehbg & 

in lxsession autostart for customization purposes, as feh uses this file as default.

For changing the wallpaper afterwards, or for just a temporary change, you can simply right-click from the thunar menu to set the background from an image file.  The current wallpapers on the iso are stored in /home/wallpaper.

Edit* I think I can change this to start from ~/.fehbg on startup now. I'll put it on the list.

Now, what are you gunna do for an installer?  wink

The standard Debian installer is available on boot.  I could add it directly to the live session as well.  Sounds like maybe I should add it in? Do most people expect to find an installer in the live session?

Any help is appreciated.  I don't even know what might be missing if anything, or how to theme the installer itself.  Very much open to help here if you can:)

Re: New ISO build to try!

Okie dokie, New images up here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/lilido … /Releases/

Thanks to hhh and johnraff, I was able to get the installer themed, and b43 firmware added to the installer.

The theme for the graphical installer matches Lilidog now, but still needs some work on the logo to be sure.

Not sure if I have missed anything else concerning the installer or not.

Is anybody interested in a sid build?

I felt like I needed extra time to work out the problems I was going to face in Bullseye, so made a couple of sid versions to work on as well. (Can't make Bullseye yet due to lilo issue.)

Conky still has issues in sid, and the hotcorners script I was using needs to be reworked. (maybe switching to lwa-hotcorners).  Other odds and ends need work as well to be sure.

From a build perspective, sid is a pain in the butt, but as a user, sure can be fun to mess with if you are not too worried in the crunch.

Of course various improvements are to be found as well.  Anyhow, once the conky issue is resolved, I'll put up a minimal sid build as well.

Re: New ISO build to try!

Thanks for replying. At the moment I haven't got / made the room on my hard drive to install it, but I expect I will soon.

From what I've seen of the live disk though, it looks quite dark but classy - it's not drab in the way a lot of the darker-themed distros are.

Re: New ISO build to try!

Hopefully live-build for Bullseye will be corrected so that it won't depend on LILO which is now being orphaned as referenced in this bug report: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo … bug=973850.

No problem and LILO is pretty damn old anyway with hardly any distros still offering it.  GRUB/GRUB2 do a much better job nowadays.

Anyhow, some of your work ought to be in BL in some way shape or form. Your work's pretty darn good!

Re: New ISO build to try!

Here is my new minimal Lilidog-Sid build)  Grab it Here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/lilido … /Releases/

This will also be the theme I will use for bullseye when that occurs.
Lilidog-Sid.png Lilidog-Sid2.png

Like my other Minimal build, you basically get Pcmanfm, Geany, Mousepad, and Urxvt. Then extras like conky,compton, dunst, etc...  This leaves the user to install web browsers, office programs, media players, and other extra programs in order to get only the items they want.  This also means updating ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml in an editor, as Obmenu is no longer available is sid. This is easy to do. Or, as an alternative, open items through the Debian Menu at the cost of your sanity. (There are also three other lightweight WM's to choose from through the Lightdm login screen.

This build comes in at 826MB after download.

A few notes about sid, and/or this build.

Conky does not display ram usage or net up/down speeds correctly in Sid at the present moment. There is already a patch, so should be fixed soon. Middle-Click the battery for htop.

The LWA Hotcorners script only works correctly in Openbox. In the other WM's another window must be opened first, so I've left it off the menu. Maybe an easy script fix for this?
 
I actually really liked the bounceback of the CB-Hotcorners script if anybody has updated it for Bullseye/Sid?

No more OBmenu in sid. Was hoping to find a patch or another program.  Anyway, will be looking at options here, but may leave it go. There are obvious alternatives like jgmenu I need to look into.

I'm still using my old theme in the installer itself for a bit longer. Kinda gotta theme it blind so it takes a minute or five.

Lots of changes as I learn more. Hopefully my full build will have a few more needed additions along with the usual assortment of upgraded packages and scripts.

Let me know how it goes! Guessing this theme may suit people better than the dark theme.

I only have 4/5 wallpapers in /Pictures/wallpapers for now.  Right-click to "Set as Wallpaper". I need to add a few nice ones to the collection to be sure.

Re: New ISO build to try!

Can't go wrong with jgmenu and I am sure it can be used in WM's other than openbox in Sid considering OBmenu is gone. Maybe @Malm can help in that regard.

Nice theme btw!

^obtaining or incorporating the patch is certainly more complicated than @Nili's simple ram code.  wink

If you remember, the bug with network speed in sid I had noticed on systems that were switched to networkd and I saw the real cause here.
In the meantime I found out by accident that this is not the case.

I can not (yet) explain a solution.

It certainly seems that Malm's excellent work is the defacto replacement for the menu issue. Looking forward to checking it out!

Still hoping for an obmenu update from a disgruntled programmer on github somewhere.

Yes!  Awesome:)

Making a "full" build sid install on this computer right now to try this out:)  I haven't tried to build against Bullseye yet. Figured I would work with sid to get everything organized first. Should be simple back the other direction.

Will have to grab the "bl-xinerama-prop" package as well.

"resistance is futile" Ha! Continuously pulled back into the fold:) Cracks me up to no end.  Wouldn't have it any other way. BL rocks. Always a saving grace when none are to be found.

Conky does not display ram usage or net up/down speeds correctly in Sid at the present moment. There is already a patch, so should be fixed soon. Middle-Click the battery for htop.

^obtaining or incorporating the patch is certainly more complicated than @Nili's simple ram code.  wink

If you remember, the bug with network speed in sid I had noticed on systems that were switched to networkd and I saw the real cause here.
In the meantime I found out by accident that this is not the case.

I can not (yet) explain a solution.

Looks like systemd may well be the culprit.  If you "downgrade" Conky to the stable version in sid you will still have this and the ram problem.

So, not a Conky problem at first/all.  Don't know why they made changes to the way values are read.

No.
The culprit is NOT systemd.
The culprit is convert.lua AND my inattention.   hmm   lol

Convert.lua script is not perfect and usually have to do a bit of manual cleanup to get the converted conky working correctly in some cases.

Still hoping for an obmenu update from a disgruntled programmer on github somewhere.

You know, of course, that "obmenu" does not provide the openbox menu? It's just a GUI for editing openbox's menu.xml ...or was - apart from needing an upgrade to use python3, it seems to have been abandoned by the developer.
