Making Devuan widely use

Hello!

I'm courious if i can find any entusiast person with who together we can make "fresh" modern looking build of Devuan with already installed software such ass librewolf (instead firefox and also cool addons and hardened settings), keepassxc, veracryppt, simplex chat, element and other useful daily programs so end user can be comfortable to openbox using it?

Also making icons and look in general closer to linux mint

All steps that were made will be in final .odt or pdf for transperancy

Thanks smile

Re: Making Devuan widely use

If you want it to look like Mint, just use Mint.....

Devuan has its own look & feel.... big_smile

But, you can modify it if you want, that's what Linux is all about. smile

Re: Making Devuan widely use

IMHO Cosmetics are always a matter of opinion.  FWIW I would suggest that it is more useful and productive to compare Devuan to Debian than it is to compare Devuan to LinuxMint.  Mint, to my mind, is more similar to Manjaro than it is Devuan....

Having said that, it is an easy task to make one distro look like another (enjoy the transformation process).

@oneofthehorses . . .

You are not the first to suggest a Mint Edition of Devuan. Back in 2018 someone contacted me about doing just what you are proposing but it never materialized . . .

Are you aware that Devuan has a thriving list of "Devuan Derivatives"? Feel free to do your thing and offer it there.
