General Support / Change fluxbox menu icons
« on: September 09, 2014, 07:05:40 PM »
I was wondering whether there is a way to change the fluxbox icon theme at once without editing every entry in ~/.flubox/menu  separately with Fluxbox Menu Editor. I fear the answer is "no" but hope is always the last to pass away...

Conky / Re: Multiple Conkys on Multiple Desktops
« on: July 18, 2014, 06:03:11 PM »
Thanks a lot Sector11!!!
 I have been looking for a way to have different conkys in every one of my desktops of my Crunchbang Waldorf machine and your guide did exactly what I wanted.
I only noticed this:
In my first attempt, one conky (say conky1) started in the 1st desktop but the other one (say conky2) started on both desktops. I had erased "sticky" on both. Then I noticed that conky1 had the "own_window_type normal" option but conky2 (the bad guy) had it "own_window_type override". I changed "override" to "normal" and things are as I wanted them to be...

Being a so happy vsido user, I could not resist to show my DellMini10v desktop.

gmusicbrowser, autohiding tint2 (obvious where I "borrowed" it from) and two conkys (don't remember where they came to me from):

Many many thanks to people who share their ideas and code.

@ orcrist

Welcome back mate!  Thank you for the excellent work and adjustments... I will add your additions to the keys file on the next ISO build so that everyone will have them from now on

I appreciate it!

I also edited your message by putting your code in the code brackets (in edit mode select all text you want in code mode and hit the number # icon)

VastOne, honestly I feel highly honored although I don't think I made something special.
It also feels great to contribute - I am not accustomed to it.
Thanks.

Thanks a lot.
Finally I opened the ~/.fluxbox/keys file and after having studied it for 2-3 minutes (as I ought to have done before my post) I made some additions which match my needs.

To anyone who might be interested, I added the following lines at the end of the file:

Code: [Select]
# open a terminal
Mod4 t :Exec xfce4-terminal

# open Iceweasel
Mod4 w :Exec iceweasel

# open Googgle Chrome
Mod4 c :Exec google-chrome

# open smplayer
Mod4 m :Exec smplayer

# open file manager
Mod4 f :Exec spacefm

# open text editor
Mod4 e :Exec medit

# take a screenshot
Mod4 s :Exec xfce4-screenshooter

# open menu
OnDesktop Mod4 space :RootMenu
OnWindow Mod4 space :RootMenu

Much easier than Openbox's rc.xml...

Hello to all
I am back to vsido after several months and it is running happily on my almost five years old DellMini10v netbook (well, after some tweaking to my liking). Many big thanks to VastOne and anyone involved in the forums.
The only thing I need now is to have Crunchbang keybinds, e.g. W-space to bring the menu, move windows with keyboard, W-something to call up several apps. Is there a way to grab whole pieces of Crunchbang's rc.xml and put it somewhere in my system?
Thanks in advance.

General Support / Re: Click on dropbox icon
« on: November 05, 2013, 07:03:04 PM »
I have dropbox running in my system [(sleep 6s && ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd) & in autostart.sh] and when I right-click on its icon in system tray and choose "Open Dropbox Folder", easytag opens instead of a file manager (say thunar). When I choose "Launch Dropbox Website" nothing happens instead of launching a web browser.
Any ideas?

Well, this is really strange... Easytag launches and when I press the "stop" button in the search dialogue, here comes my Dropbox folder opened by... google-chrome!!!

Hardware Help & Support / Re: Cups service doesn't autostart
« on: November 04, 2013, 05:53:28 PM »
Just ran into this myself. A couple of ways to handle it.

sysv-rc and set it with a tick mark for the levels you want
or
sudo update-rc.d cups enable

if you are using systemd then use
systemctl command

Thanks! "sudo update-rc.d cups enable" did the trick.

Check your /etc/network/interfaces and make sure this is in it

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

Then restart and see if that resolves it

This is a strange one... but a bug no less... Let me know if it does solve it

My /etc/network/interfaces is exactly like this. No, the problem is still there.

Hardware Help & Support / [SOLVED] Cups service doesn't autostart
« on: November 03, 2013, 06:21:08 PM »
I would like to have the cups service start at boot but I cannot figure out how. I have had the packages installed by the vsido-welcome script and I can start the service manually (sudo /etc/init.d/cups start).
Having it enabled by boot-up-manager seems to change nothing.
Thanks in advance.

Hello again VastOne,

Not being able to boot into my installed VSIDO system in order to be able to purge and install the packages you mentioned, I did the following:
On the live system, I installed the grub-pc package via apt (grub-efi-amd64 was uninstalled automatically). Grub-pc offered the choice of mbr and disk - I chose and it output an error on installation. I ignored the error and run the "/usr/sbin/grub-install --recheck --no-floppy --root-directory=/media/sda6 /dev/sda" command which gave no errors. Rebooted with fingers crossed and I was welcomed with a pretty Grub screen!!!. I did all this before your very last answer...

Many thanks again for your kind help and interest.

There was already a grub installed on mbr by Crunchbang Waldorf. I chose sda and mbr during installation.

Following instructions on http://manual.aptosid.com/en/sys-admin-grub2-en.htm#mbr-over-grub2 and after having mounted /dev/sda6 on /media/sda6 and run the "/usr/sbin/grub-install --recheck --no-floppy --root-directory=/media/sda6 /dev/sda" command I got the "/usr/sbin/grub-install: 352: .: Can't open /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc/modinfo.sh" message. I remembered then that this message appeared during installation of VSIDO too.
In a desperation I copied the modinfo.sh as well as the *mod, *lst and kernel.img files from /usr/lib/grub/x86_64-efi/ to /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc/ (guided by the error messages) and finally grub-install did run with no errors. After rebooting, I was presented again with the same error message.

VSIDO News & Announcements / Grub problem with latest ISO
« on: September 01, 2013, 08:42:35 PM »
Hello,
After installing VSIDO 64 from the very latest ISO and rebooting I am presented with "grub not found" error. I dual boot with Windows 7 and I chose Grub to be installed on mbr as always. During its last steps, installation seemed to have found the windows partition together with the windows recovery and the VSIDO ones.
I had no such problem with other previous ISOs or Crunchbang.
Forgot to mention that I am posting using the live CD as it is impossible for me to access either Windows or my VSIDO installation...
