Re: Ideas for Janice

Yeeks... "incomplete lists" by more than one person and "update fails" are making me think this is more than a wishlist item at this point and could also still explain some of the weirder recent bugs people have been running into. I'm also wondering (using the 1:10 complaint rule) that there might be others out there we just aren't hearing from, especially if they are trying it for the first time.

So... even though the problem itself looks upstream, I'm requesting a triage bump on this so could a mod please ping the white courtesy phone? big_smile

Re: Ideas for Janice

Hi to all, Crunchbang is full of helpful features (like the dropbox install script I discovered today).
I would suggest for the next release to offer a choice of scripts for specific setups.
In my case I would like to see a very basic setup with additional scripts performing a painless installation of music programs for midi and audio recording. The reason being to include all necessary programs and avoid conflicts.
Up to now I have been afraid of trying these programs, since Macs and *even* MSPC's have become really userfriendly.
Analogously, some users with advanced scripting experience might help to set up install scripts for specific Crunchbang applications ( multimedia, scientific, graphics, medical etc).
Thanks again
Marc

Re: Ideas for Janice

^ Agreed with dawiba. I use a variety of multimedia applications (moreso video than audio) and while a pre-pack selection setup script would be nice, it might not have the apps I'm looking for, or it might have way more than needed (and everyone is different). It'd also have to be maintained and would add a lot of additional overhead to the welcome script (the more categories you include, the more potential it has to become unwieldy).

Re: Ideas for Janice

If only Debian had something analogous to the AUR, then users could simply upload different metapackages and it wouldn't bloat up the install script.

It's just the price you pay for apt's portability.  Higher abstraction and all, I have a feeling debian will tune it down eventually to something simpler like the pkgbuild standards.  I'm using gentoo ebuilds which is even lower since vmware fusion doesn't handle arch these days, but still Arch is the best middle man I've seen in these custom build flag regards.

Re: Ideas for Janice

I'm gonna add another sugestion. Why not switch evince for mupdf? It's lighter, faster, better, stronger. And the controls are really intuitive.

Re: Ideas for Janice

I love all the suggestions for more minimalist PDF readers, and I don't want to discourage such discussion, but many of these were tossed into the Waldorf discussion, and Philip stuck with Evince; it's a bit of a fixture in #!, like The GIMP.

Re: Ideas for Janice

Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Evince supports more document forumats than muPDF does... And I don't think it too heavy for what it is, anyway. Though, I know there are always extremists around. ;-)

On the other hand, I use Okular anyway... I know, I know it all... But it supports even more formats, and more importantly, it is the only document (e-book) reader for GNU/Linux with annotation features non affecting the documents themselves that I know of. And this is VERY handy when you are studying from e-books. But I would never expect to see it default in #!, of course! :-)

Re: Ideas for Janice

^ You're totally right. With some apt pinning and careful footing you can most certainly get one of the gnome desktop apps installed and fully functional without the whole DE breathing down your neck.

Perhaps someone would be interested in starting a CrunchBang Community Edition? And we could have different spins and it would be just like Linux Mint and everything lol

You guys kill me  lol

However, I do think that it makes sense to try to avoid Gnome specific apps as much as possible..

Re: Ideas for Janice

@anonymous:  I was going to point out that this has been suggested before, but then I saw it's you, and you've been here for all those suggestions. lol  cool   Besides, such a project already exists, though due to its unofficial association with #!, I understand it doesn't use corenominal's repos.

Re: Ideas for Janice

I sincerely hope we won't see votes on what apps to include and leave that to our wise and benevolent leader.
devil or I'll start a social-media campaign for unity, gnome-games and maybe some bible-app, lol.

That's what this thread is all about. We are shouting and voting, but don't really want  it to make a difference.

Do it, I'll post +1.

Why would we want anything like Linux Mint? If you like it, use it. I myself can``t stand Linux Mint. I would rather use Windows. Ugh!
