GNOME:

Changed shell to zsh with grml's configuration (providing the spell correction and menu-style autocompletion, git status is also included in the prompt) and zsh-syntax-highlighting. It's running in (u)xterm with a custom autostart script to merge the .Xresources file manually, otherwise the configuration doesn't work under Wayland.

I compiled newest version of mpd. The newest version is 0.21.16. In Debian repos MPD is 0.21.5-3, and this Debian version crashed sporadically. The newest version works like a charm....also, to be on the safe side, i compiled newest versions of mpc (0.32) and development version ncmpcpp.

Did you include the patch for the configuration file location?

Here's a version that does: https://software.opensuse.org//download ... ackage=mpd

No i don't...but MPD reads my config file, which I placed in

Code: Select all

.config/mpd/
without problem. Also i start MPD with systemd

Code: Select all

$ systemctl --user enable mpd.service
Here my config:

Code: Select all

music_directory     "~/Music"
playlist_directory  "~/Playlists"
db_file             "~/.local/share/mpd/mpd.db"
log_file            "~/.local/share/mpd/mpd.log"
pid_file            "~/.local/share/mpd/mpd.pid"
state_file          "~/.local/share/mpd/mpd.state"
sticker_file        "~/.local/share/mpd/sticker.sql"

bind_to_address     "127.0.0.1"
log_level           "default"
restore_paused      "yes"
metadata_to_use     "artist,album,title,track,date"
auto_update         "yes"

input {
        plugin "curl"
}

audio_output {
        type            "pulse"
        name            "pulse audio"
}       


Anyway, thanks for the link.

Hey, HoaS -

I converted my background image into a 640x480 png grub wallpaper and figured old crunchbangers like us might like something like that :)

grub wallpaper - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pF-_Y ... M_6-xGjFqb

original image -1920x1080 jpg - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ljGar ... 4mxqt-Eq4F

Enjoy :)

Folks who know me know that I probably haven't changed my wallpaper in about three years. Been working for the last couple of days on some conky tweaks and thought I'd share a couple screenshots.

WM is openbox, the normally hidden panel is tint2 and since tint2 doesn't have a pager I had to kinda sorta make a quick and dirty pager you'd use by clicking on the desktop names - visible in second screenshot.

Anyway, I kinda like it. I especially like getting to share a screenshot that's different from the one I've used for the past two or three years :)

Image <-- panel hidden

Image <-- panel not hidden

Glad you like it - I did figure out that if I kept the filename consistent I could just drop any 640x480 8-bit png into /boot/grub and not have to update grub every time i changed the image :)

cheers -

Post to celebrate the official release of SharpBang GNU/Linux, a live ISO image that can be used to install a pre-configured Openbox/Tint2 desktop running on Debian stable:

Only Debian stable repositories are used with a single custom .deb package supplying the desktop configuration.

Post to celebrate the official release of SharpBang GNU/Linux
Downloaded this morning and took a look running in "live mode". Very nice!- very quick to boot from USB drive; nice look and feel; good selection of useful tools. I will likely turn to this for system analysis/recovery of unbootable systems ahead of Grml from now on. Great work...

Thanks None1975 & tynman. The network manager was stolen from grml's live image and it has most of their recovery tools but with the added convenience of passwordless mounting for internal drives in the file manager.

The installer works as well and should support Secure Boot.

Yeah but the UI is beautifully minimal and it's quicker on my hardware than dwm 'cos it uses the GPU to move stuff around the desktop :)
