Debian + FLUXBOX = my Crunchbang replacement!
« on: July 29, 2015, 03:12:00 AM »
Hello all! I met Ozitraveller on Crunchbang and saw him posting here so I thought I would sign up. I just downloaded his Star Linux to checkout: https://sourceforge.net/projects/linnix/files/ I have Fluxbox installed on my Debian box, but I'm always on the lookout for something to borrow. In fact, I just downloaded Mint, Xubuntu, OpenSUSE, Chromixium, FreeBSD and DragonFly. Pretty much, I think my Debian is better than all the Linux distros, but I do like FreeBSD.

Anyway, just wanted to say hello. You guys have a mean registration signup...it took me a few tries (birds of prey do fly)...Oh, also I posted links to two HOWTOs I wrote elsewhere http://vsido.org/index.php?topic=1040.0 but I think they are too complicated or something, since no one ever comments on them.

thanks ozitraveller and VastOne...I heard about vsido a few weeks ago. Personally, I really like what Fluxbox has to offer over OpenBox...really great man pages and good customization options. BTW, I just realized if I tweak the following two settings Fluxbox acts more zippy:

session.screen0.menuMode: Click
session.autoRaiseDelay: 0

not sure why they put the longer delay in the default init file. I better read up on Vsido and check out the DVD now that I'm here  :)

one of those things that takes you a couple of months to figure out...then you are like "oh damn!"
