That's too specific for most users I'd say. And on the other hand, that's extremely easy to achieve for yourself.

I am just guessing here, but.. that is a lot of work given the complexity of most of the Asian languages.

You will want to install ibus packages including ibus-gtk, ibus-qt, either mozc or anthy for Japanese, I'm not sure for chinese, and also east asian language fonts.

On this topic, I would actually love it if crunchbang came with input methods pre-installed as well. I imagine it would take considerable disc space though, especially if you're going to include east asian fonts (which can be quite large in size).

If xscreensaver is kept and not replaced by i3lock I propose to make either "SlideScreen" or "Fiberlamp" the default screensaver   cool

Re: Ideas for Janice

Something I find dull about Linux distros is that they generally don't have a bootup or login sound, you have to hack your way though.
I'd suggest a bootup/login sound for #!, just to break the dullness, not only in Linux in general, but also in #!, giving it a bit of user-friendlyness. Yeah, that.

Re: Ideas for Janice

Implement XSETTINGS for accessibility.

Currently there's no straightforward way to increase double click speed, for example. You have to set it seperately for openbox, gtk2, gtk3, qt and java! xsettings and a matching daemon allows to set this in one place.

xsettingsd is in jessie, while xfsettingsd is part of xfce4-settings-manager. I  would suggest latter as it unites many settings (keyboard, font hinting, resolution, screensaver, pointer size etc.) without adding bloat.

It's generally easier to add irritating features than remove them. I've spent years of my precious life for muting startup and login sounds in several Windows and Linux installs.

Heard them all: Microsoft Windows Startup and Shutdown Sounds

God no. If you like cute welcoming sounds Puppy Linux will greet you with a charming puppy bark on start up. It filled me with the warm fuzzies the first time but after that it starts to wear a bit thin.

Iceweasel is basically Firefox. and you have the option to install Libreoffice from the cb-welcome script.

the galaxy one is better because they crunch together and then go bang!

what how about a keyboard sound of typing when we are prompted for our username and password at the login screen?
I can imagine a sonic boom will not make the boot dull anymore
kind of like the big bang to go with the galaxy I mentioned above

I use an old crunchbang login wav on every install - I love my crunchbang login sound smile

And just for giggles I made this one: startup.wav

Re: Ideas for Janice

all I wanted was to use the word mapplet and it turned into this!

make the clock like in this image so we can add events to the calendar
and then it can automatically add them to cron to give notify-send notifications like silent visualise alarm clock
and then automatically remove them from the cron once they have been used up for all their time up expiration
since the date is already selected then we only give the time and event title and details (summary and body)
this can be from a popup window for the required input
and when we mouse the dates the title/summary can hover like a tooltip

otherwise we can have a little mapplet like here
or this one even has a 3d globe
but both of those have week numbers
my crunchbang doesnt even have week numbers
maybe in a configurations file somewhere but I havent looked for it yet

no right click for gui edit the options though
this is #! so we only need can use the configuration files
for set things like the 12 or 24 hour and format hh:mm
or even epoq
or even mm:ss:hh dd,MMM dd:yyyy:MM two many different kinds of m&M
one or two letter is for numbers but three is for letters unless its y
these things are usually only set one time and then forget so gui is waste

all three types for clicks do the same for calendar but
when I right click on the clock it just acts the same as normally click with the left mouse
I cant decide if this is good or bad
middle click it for the desktop menu but why right click not show openbox menu?
I just found the gui editor for openbox menu!
I will never use it though

Good stuff. Nothing too wacky yet big_smile

I tried
there isnt much I can think of

I will now do some research for this
maybe I will find a configuration file somewhere
but I cant see what it is from click > about because there isnt any

Yeah, but it was when I was running it on an old laptop, because I couldn't get wireless working with an old crunchbang. The sound of breaking glass was a sort of personal protest big_smile
