Add Slint to Salix, just for fun.

Post by DidierSpaier » 3. Feb 2017, 12:42

  • Install Salix XFCE 14.2 (I used the 64-bit x86_64 edition)
  • In /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc, add this line:

    Code: Select all

  • Run spi -u
  • Run slapt-get --install-set slint
  • Run dotnew
  • Add a new user (to get Slint customizations)
  • Login as a new user.
Icons are missing, but that roughly seems to work.

However, you will need to create a password for root as Slint doesn't use sudo and make other changes to be able to graphically start the apps in salixtools-gtk.

You get 5 more WMs, the Slint Control Center and a few additional apps at no additional cost ;)

PS This is just for fun, don't do that in a production system...
