Now I'm back in my comfort zone
« on: February 22, 2013, 10:23:50 PM »
After VastOne showed me how to "fix" the apt-listbugs problem, I've had "nothing but net" ;)
The only thing I've found is that apt-xapian-index would be nice if it was there out of the box.
For those who don't know what it is, it allows the "quick search" in synaptic (you have to run update-apt-xapian-index after installing it)
The rest was my "preferences".
I did trash tint2 and installed Cairo Dock (I suppose that's my siduction, fuduntu pollution), but after that, I'm sitting idle under 300mb (I remember when a 20 mb harddrive was big).
Nice.

I thought that I had added apt-xapian-index, but did not...

I will add it and it will be on the next ISO that I will upload tonight, along with the themes added by McLovin and Sector11

I now remember why I did not include apt-xapian-index as part of the build..  The index that it does upon installation creates a 40 MiB file that is not compressed that changes the size of the ISO from 630MiB to 670MiB

I am of the opinion that very few people actually use Synaptic once they understand apt-cache policy and apt-search... se is an excellent alias for finding out all levels of packages avalable

I will not be including apt-xapian-index

Not a problem.  Just posting results back so others might benefit.
