Re: Michaels Devuan Edition *Update*

Nice work alphalfa, i like jwm wm, so light and configurable. Ill have to give Michael a try. Any reason behind the name or is that your given name?

Re: Michaels Devuan Edition *Update*

@alphalpha: Took Michael's Devuan Edition for a test drive "Live" JWM, very impressed with what you have done! I got caught up in it and played around and explored, learned a few things too! cool

I'm guessing or assuming because haven't used polybar before is what you have in Jwm?

Thanks, will try out the other Wm's soon, great job and look forward to anything new you might be working on! smile



cheers

Re: Michaels Devuan Edition *Update*

@alphalpha I also took Michael's Devuan Edition for a test drive using VirtualBox 6.0.14

On shutdown from the Jwm menu, then it just hangs.

xauth: file/home/michael/.Xauthority does not exist

Ozi


EDIT: After checking the home folder I can see that the .Xauthority is there.
I also checked the shutdown menu item in the Jwm menu file. I didn't get a message to supply the password to shutdown.

@ zephyr
hey nice to hear that smile i thought nobody would even try it
jwm uses its own bar, i3 and bsp use polybar

@ Ozi
I am not familiar with virtualbox and i dont see why it wont show
what happens if you enter the password (root) and enter?
The shutdown option in the rofi launcher should work tho

Re: Michaels Devuan Edition *Update*

Hi...

Just for your information - I maintain a set of minimal patches to strip pulseaudio and libsystemd from a number of packages I use.  You can find the packages (binaries and sources) under http://www.saar.de/~aw/debloatian/.

Re: Michaels Devuan Edition *Update*

Plentyn . . . Why don't you make these packages available in git.devuan.org?
