Loving the awesome 32bit version - easily the most usable version of awesome I have used.

Thank you for that darry1966! One of my main goals is to hopefully provide a system that is user-friendly. I'm not always sure if I've accomplished that! tongue LOL! So, your input is very much appreciated!

#7 Re: Other Issues » [SOLVED] Installed ASCII when it was unstable, is reinstall necessary? » 2018-07-01 21:50:17

Did anything new get installed after running the commands?

Basically, the dist-upgrade is used to install any new packages (and dependencies) that are pertinent to the ASCII stable release that may not have been included in the previous releases before ASCII became stable...n'stuff. big_smile

Hi Ron!

Yes, you're good to go. The only thing that I can think of (if you haven't already done so) is to run a...

sudo apt-get update

...followed by a...

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Regarding less updates that ASCII is stable, updates will be fewer and far between. wink

I appreciate that, but you don't need my permission. If I do anything that folks want to use in any shape, form, or fashion...I'm glad to have been of service. I wouldn't care if Debian, Ubuntu, or Manjaro used something of mine without asking. fact...I'd like to see it!

A new release of Manjaro with a MiyoLinux wallpaper that still says MiyoLinux on it! LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!! tongue

^ WOW! Awesome wallpaper for CROWZ, like it a lot!  smile

Love your artwork, gonna have to let me borrow it! big_smile

Have played around with obmenu-generator in the past, looks great! smile



Oh dear...before I saw this, I got rid of that wallpaper and replaced it with another one that I made. The new one looks very similar, but I used a different font for CROWZ.

I went ahead and uploaded it to my pCloud account in case you might want it. The link will show you a preview. So, it's at the link below if you want to check it out. wink  It's 1920 x 1080.

Don't mean to put you on the spot, but will you be providing an updated "DIY" build? smile

Have your Kirk Xfce version installed on a partition and loving it! big_smile

CROWZ 2.0 Openbox with obmenu-generator providing the menu.

WOW! Writing this from the CROWZ Openbox version! big_smile

How do you pack so much stuff into such a small .iso?!?!? yikes

...and how do you get things like Synaptic to open with pkexec?!?!? Does it have something to do with this...

/usr/lib/policykit-1-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 &

...and how do you get a 64bit with the items running at start-up to boot up at +/- 125 MBs of RAM?!?!?

...and how do you... tongue

An absolutely great job zephyr. I'm in awe! big_smile

Now to try out your other versions as soon as I have time. smile

#14 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » basic_config » 2018-06-24 13:28:04

I'm on my phone...can't go into much. tongue

I can't answer as to why the installer uses "pkgmaster" by default; however, I would use the recommended sources as given in the release notes...deb.devuan.

The expert install allows the choice to use deb.devuan.

The ascii-proposed isn't necessary to add to the sources.

Change backports to .deb.devuan also.

For one method to stop screen-blanking, read the following thread for fixes for lightdm and slim. I'm not sure which DM the Mate desktop comes with. Haven't tried the lightdm fix since I don't use it, but it should work.

Others may have a different or better method. wink

#16 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » Anyone get Lutris working? » 2018-06-20 20:01:03

I know nothing about Lutris (sounds like a good thing though!).

I didn't add the ppa; I downloaded the .deb package from the link provided on the Lutris website. Installed it with the GDebi Package Installer, and it opened right up. smile

I have no games to try it out with though. tongue

Hi everyone!

I wasn't sure where to put this, so if an administrator wishes to move it, please do. smile

I'm undergoing a major change in my personal life; I'll be starting a new job this Thursday (06-21-2018).

As such, I will be a bit overwhelmed with everything involved with it. It may take me a while to get back into the groove of things. Therefore, I'm humbly asking for the help of others here...

WIth this change, I may not be available to answer questions about MiyoLinux for awhile. So...I'm humbly asking that if anyone does happen to ask questions about (or have a problem with) MiyoLinux...and if another forum member can answer the question, please...PLEASE feel free to do so. I will check in as I'm able, and I will again announce when I'm back on track. Until then, I would deeply appreciate any help that I can possibly get.

With all that I can honestly muster...I say, "Thank you!" smile

Not being one to align myself with dickheadism, and being of sound mind and body...sans any reference to dickheadedness in regard to the body tongue, and having the wherewithal of being both a member and an administrator of other forums, I do hereby declare that in reference to trollstances, administrators can certainly benefit from the input of forum members in regard to trollism; whereby, administrators can be alerted to certain things that may not immediately catch their attention otherwise. Said administrators still have the option of acting upon said supratrollitarianism regardless of a member's (or members') input.

As to the troll possibilities...

All of this X and Y stuff has given me a nervous jerkdown in remembrance of high school algebra; whereas, it has conjured up memories of mathematical formulas that I use in my work today; therefore (and as a byproduct), I am reminded of basic sentence structure; as such, I am reminded of basic English punctuation and must reprimand myself for using run-on sentences; however, I like using lots of punctuation n'stuff...whether it's called for or not ('cause that's the way I roll); as such, I trust that most here are level headed enough to recognize trollism and will mark said trolls appropriately...n'stuff...n'other stuff n'such...n'stuff.

Still playing with PekWM...and REALLY liking it! Why is this window manager lesser known and not more widely used? Got the right-click menu more to my liking, and I substituted the tint2 panel with fbpanel. So now, I have stinkin' dynamic menus all over the stinkin' place...and it's still light on resources! big_smile

Still more work to do and stuff to discover n'stuff. tongue

For a very basic Plasma desktop, install...


...that doesn't install any of the normal Plasma related items; such as, Dolphin, Konqueror, Kwrite, etc... but it gives you the Plasma desktop. If you want to add Plasma related items, you'll have to install them separately.

Here's a link to where I built a very minimal Plasma. Keep in mind, this was done SEVERAL months ago...
