U.K. - "In The Dead Of The Night"

as stated above... the latest iso is great... essential stuff like wireless, sound, just as I expected. This time I did not go into color shock, am getting used to the bright shiny Vsido desktops. Honestly I think you should keep it that way, it is like your signature... and gives me something to change... since everything works so well ootbx it gives me something to do  :D
The only thing to mention is that in the Openbox menu there is a leftover of times past in the form of "Wicd" network manager. Great stuff VastOne, keep it up:)

Downloading to check the live one for fun, it still says it is kernel 3.7 when the download window shows up in my browser, but is 3.8 right? my present Vsido install is on a small 60GB SSD disk and works awesomely well, if it continues in that way it will be installed to a bigger "normal" disk, will pop in to say how "great" the latest iso is after trying it  ;D

 ^glad to be of "help". listening to Yes "Fly From Here", comforting to hear that they still have the ability to reproduce their original atmospheric seventies sound  :)

oooh great, all sunshine here again:)

Here is some of the promised feedback/praise of Vsido, praise yes! fantastic work VastOne, you can be proud of what you have achieved:)
I am an Openbox fan so Vsido fits me very well, and since #! is my favorite it is very easy to feel at home here. Earlier I mentioned that
I had to "unslick" it, I regret that choice of word, as Sector 11 (think it was him) pointed out that it is more a question of making it a little
less shiny. The cause for saying it is probably because of having the simple, effective austerity of the #! desktop so close at heart, and
then when the very bright colors hit me when I tested it the first time, I just got a little color shock, thats all. This is after all just a matter
of personal taste, so do not worry about Vsido being too slick. I have found a pleasant compromise in using the NewSlickness-brushed and
S11-SR-71-black themes against a reddish/pinkish/purplish space background. Have made the fonts smaller, but have kept the original styles of them, so far...
A very good choice of applications in the default setup if I may say so, have only added "Catfish", "Gufw", "Spotify" and "dmenu" of course,
a great tool imo. I have some on my waiting list, but first I want to try out some of the default ones instead of just adding stuff that I am used too.
"UMPlayer" will probably fit me very well, since I am an old school music listener that like to listen through an entire album (preferably a concept one;)
so am used to pick one from the music folder and therefore have no or very little use of making playlists. + with Spotify I have an ok player with an
unmatchable music library to select from."SpaceFM" will be a very interesting acquaintance, have heard a lot of positive things about it, "Thunar" is great though.
I like "Medit" a lot so no need to change that one, am writing this with it. Everything works very well so far, there are a couple of quirks though, but
I will get back to it later, want to confirm that there are things that are weird/buggy/quirky or whatever you want to call it, first.
For the future then... well all I can say is that it is up to you VastOne! Make Vsido as you want it, it is after all your child, the rest
is choice and an apt-get away, no worry. Have fun making it, that way the result will continue to be as good as it is today. Not that you
should stop listening to others opinions, but do not do stuff you dislike. Keep it real, simple as that. If/when I remember something that
is worth sharing, or asking about, "I`ll be back..." until then, have a blazingly good time everybody!

read this;,218.0.html

the bottom dock can also be set to autohide, if you want to move conky from left to right you have to change your conky config, check or ask in the conky section of the forum, i am not much of a conky fan, but i know some of the others are:)

it is still the old kernel number that shows when downloading the latest iso, am giving it a live spin just for the "fun" of it, wanted to see if the newer kernel should/could give me some problem, so far so good:)

For anyone happy as clams with their installs, there is no need to download and start over...

Yes, that is logical...but when you know there is a new iso...  ;D

Thanks for all of the above, appreciate it, I also set my bottom panel to autohide whilst at it, so now my debiverse is in place again. Just a little suggestion though, change the thread title to something more like "How to...":)
