Michaels Devuan Edition 1.0 Released

Hey all,
I am happy to announce the 1.0 release of Michaels Devuan Edition,
it is based on the Refracta no dbus iso, so it uses beowulf and is kind of experimental.
After the boot procedure you can choose between i3 and JWM window mangers.
I forked refracta-installer and refracta-snapshot to include some new features.

You can find the ISO and some screenshots over here

cat README.txt

	Welcome to Michaels Devuan Edition!

	II.	 Installation
	III.    Getting Started

----------------------------------------------------------------------

	I.	 What is Michaels Devuan Edidion?

	It is a Devuan snapshot which comes with pre-configured i3 and JWM
	window mangers. It includes a selection of my favorite application
	and my personal configurations (dotfiles). It also includes some
	applications that are not available in the Devuan repositories,
	namely: AZpainter, Easypaint, FocusWriter, Heimer, Xwallpaper, 
	TrueCrypt and VeraCrypt. In addition to that there are some custom 
	shell scripts in '~/Scripts' and '/usr/local/bin' to make life
	a little easier. 
	
	I forked Refracta-Installer and Refracta-Snapshot to give it a new
	interface and new features (eg. TrueCrypt/VeraCrypt support, 
	support for Syslinux and various other options). 

	The ISO is based on Refracta-Experimental(no dbus), so by default,
	there is no dbus and no pulseaudio. If you want to install dbus or
	any programm that depends on dbus you would have to remove 
	'/etc/apt/preferences.d/nodbus'.

	I should also mention that it uses the beowulf release.
	
----------------------------------------------------------------------

	II.	 Installation

	Boot the live environment and run 'michaels-installer' to start
	my fork of Refracta or just type 'refractainstaller' to start the
	traditional Refracta-Installer.
	Use michaels-installer at your own risk. It works for fine
	for me, but it has not been tested by other people yet.

	If you need to install proprietary wifi drivers, you can find them
	in '~/firmware.beowulf'. For example to install intel wifi drivers
	cd firmware.beowulf; sudo dpkg -i firmware-iwlwifi_20190114-1_all.deb
	

----------------------------------------------------------------------

	III. Getting Started

	If you have never used i3, I suggest you watch a video or read some
	documentation first (or just use JWM if that is what you want). 

	Some basic keybidings are:
	Superkey+Return to open the rofi application launcher
	Superkey+Shift+Return to open a terminal (or Super+X)
	Superkey+F to open the pcmanfm file manager
	Superkey+E to open featherpad text editor
	Superkey+W to launch the links2 web browser
	Superkey+F3 to open the i3 config file
	Super+Shift+Q to close an open window use 
	For network managing i use a tool called Ceni (Super+N)
	To exit i3 use Super+Ctrl+E or to shutdown Super+Shift+Delete
