Salix Openbox

Post by antmon » 11. Feb 2013, 12:37

Hi!
I read a rumor of a Salix Openbox Edition. Is it true?
If not is there a guide to follow to make Salix as Slackel Openbox?

:lol:
I did that! The configuration is the hard part for me! Can I install Slackel Openbox and turn it into Salix Openbox? Is changing slapt-get sources enough?

No, you can't do that, because Slackel has a more recent kernel and all its packages are built against that. Actually, you could do it, but it would be complex and fraught with the risk of breaking everything. Much simpler to configure Openbox for Salix. Or why not just use Slackel Openbox? It's basically just Salix with a more recent kernel and packages from the Slackware current repo.

You could grab the file http://www.slackel.gr/repo/x86_64/curre ... ch-5dj.txz and work from there.

Code: Select all

slapt-get --simulate --install-set openbox
To see what packages will be installed

Then procced to installation

Code: Select all

slapt-get --install-set openbox
Finally install the only package is not yet on repos.
Download from here

Be sure to install user-settings-openbox-14.0-noarch-2dj.txz

Code: Select all

slapt-get -i user-settings-openbox
Finally create a new user for your system or
copy /etc/skel/.config/ to /home/your-user folder
and /etc/skel/.local to /home/your-user folder
or the whole /etc/skel/*

Making configuration is the fun part! You don't want other people doing that for you (there's gotta be a limit to how 'lazy' you can be). For customization ideas, you can see eg:

(Sorry for all the links to Arch, but I've used it for a long time, and their forum/wiki is really good)

No problem, that's true. ;)

What really matters is where you are going, not where you come from.

Thanks guys!
Nowadays I tend to go with "if someone invented the wheel why do it again". And I mean this as a complement.
I still have a issue with lxde-applications.menu and /usr/bin/openboxmenu but I think this as to do with lxde.

GREAT FORUM!
