Read over this thread while I downloaded the old computers non PAE 32 bit image. I think its time to update my work laptop to waldorf/wheezy... Breakages seem to have pretty much settled down. Making backups... DDing iso to usb... Stay tuned for the second half of this post!
And we're back. Updated successfully. Trying out this crazy iceweasel thing for a change. I don't like the default compton drop shadow... so I softened it a bit.
I was kind of shocked when I realized I had installed statler in only one partition... I corrected that error in judgement and split this install into a / and /home scheme.
I dislike geany, so I uninstalled it and installed gedit, which works fine again now that the gnome crap has settled down.
As mentioned once already there is a typo in the openbox menu, it still has GNOME MPlayer listed under multimedia instead of VLC, though the menu item does correctly point to VLC.
Good work as always.

Yes, I forgot to mention that. Agreed, it seems a bit over the top. Just bottom-right instead of all round would be a bit more natural-looking, maybe.
U heer dat, Philip? We wants our steppers bak!
...er, I mean, if it wouldn't be too much trouble, would you mind including versions of the Waldorf themes with steppers in the repos?
2. This laptop is really old so the LCD is not as crisp as newer ones so I'm wondering if a bit of font config/hacking might help. Very crisp running in a VM on my desktop though.
Installed ttf-ubuntu-font-family_0.80-0ubuntu5_all.deb and using Ubuntu Light 9 with this config http://crunchbanglinux.org/wiki/howto/font_rendering
Much better now. Will play with the font config a bit still to try other hinting etc.
I have been using Waldorf for a few days now, and I have changed NOTHING except to change the default browser, and USUALLY I use one of my own photos for my desktop, but alas, I am in love even with the default ones, I like the one with the spiral best, and I love the login, methinks that is slim. Anyway, installation went perfect and smooth, and so far, absolutely NO issues to report except perfection I use an Acer Veritron VZ 290G with intel Atom inside.

maybe this thread can be of interest for you;
or start a new thread in the Waldorf section, welcome & good luck
Time to move on!#
it will be enjoyable when next version(Waldorf) is capable of installing on EFI partition
and has an option for safety removable of disks on pipmenu like this
