Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium

I m sorry to say that I should have also reported my successes in this thread, I guess.  I have the latest release working well on both MX19b3 and antiX19b3.  I made a small change to the exit routine to use my yad script.  Otherwise everything seems to work and run minus "systemd."  The desktop also seems to play nicely with the mxTool set; I have not had a chance to check that out yet on antiX.  I had to remove antiX's slim display manager and replace with lightdm... things didn't work without that change, for some reason.  Personally I'm not a fan of slim anyway. wink  Here's my thread on BL Forums...

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium

Hello, I have been able to dress BL Helium (Stretch) with the new Lithium packages. I added the Lithium experimental repo, did a full-upgrade and deleted everything in .config directory. I had only an issue with Jgmenu not finding lx-module so I backported from Buster to Stretch menu-cache3 building from deb-src. Everything is pretty good, only bunsen-thunar and bunsen-utilities could not be upgraded because of missing dependencies in Stretch (libthunarx-3-0 and python3-distutils).

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium

Really enjoying my fresh Lithium install. You have done a great job so far, take your time, it pays off in the end. smile

One peculiar thing though that I have noticed. When I use the TTY log in option with startx, the dialog bl-exit box does not come up from neither the menu, or the key combo super+x. If I recall correctly that did work in Helium, and it still does, though my Helium is targeted at unstable since quite some time.

Just wanted to mention it in case it is something that needs attention. Thank you. smile


Keep BunsenLabs #!yish please.

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium

^Dolly, thanks for the feedback, and the encouragement!

You might have found a bug here - I wonder if you could repost the bl-exit issue as a new topic in "Bug Reports"? We'd like to get to the bottom of it, and the conversation might clog up this general thread.

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium

I like it so far and theme looks very nice as usual with Crunch/Bunsen. As for suggestions - option to not install Libreoffice and to install Chrome/Chromium from the menu (like before). And to add keyboard layout switcher by default.

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium

Hi,

I have just installed Bunsen Lithium on a new machine.

One problem I have is that whenever I suspend the computer (or simply lock it with Super+L), then the screen shuts down and remains black. Thankfully, the password field is selected by default and I'm able to type in my password and unlock with Enter.

This might be caused by me pulling some dotfiles from a previous setup into my home directory by mistake.

Any solution for this?

Thanks.

P.S. The installation of Lithium was very smooth, Impressive work, guys!

It's a bug in current version of light-locker. Remove it, install xscreensaver and bind Super+L to

xscreenlocker-command -lock

or install some other alternative.

Re: Experimental BunsenLabs Lithium

How about adding Nvidia/AMD drivers optional to post install script? Could help new users not mess up their system and it's easier to fix screen tears (at least for me on nv).

It would be nice, but is not a trivial task to automate: you get into maybe having to set up Optimus and bbswitch etc, and maybe kernel boot parameters...and...and...and...

The nouveau driver which is shipped with BL does a good job generally, but the quirks of your own hardware means you may have to do some configuration yourself.

(You could try something like Mint which does a good job OOTB for NVidia hardware)

Personally I learned the hard way by messing up my system several times  monkey  On the plus side though, I learned how to set up NVidia and optimize the graphics, and also how to archive  the installation partition, and restore it after f***ing it up!

Yeah thats fun for sure  smile
Maybe better then to link to some step by step guide how to identify your hardware and install correct driver the right way? I thinking from a new user perspective who is not very experienced with debian/linux to get slightly less steep learning curve.

I guess they could be more prominent, but there are several HowTo's for NVidia on these forums. Even if some a getting dated they can still give you a step-by-step.

This, for example:
HowTo: Install NVIDIA - with HoaS and damo methods.

Debian Bug link, please? I don't have this problem. I push the power button on my laptop to see the login-screen after suspend, and any key after screen-lock blanking (I use the Windows key) to see the login-screen.
