fulalas... dead projects also don't maintain forums.

...people new to the project tend to think it is inactive.

The last post from it's sole maintainer Sanel Zukan (a Slackware user) was
on 09/22. See... https://sourceforge.net/p/ede/discussio ... /f1b2dd27/

I also found that PekWM is only a default. I'm considering doing a build using
Compiz-Reloaded 0.8 (w/out Emerald or boxmenu so it has no Gtk/Qt bloat).
see... http://equinox-project.org/wiki/faq

So I guess (@ least for now) EDE doesn't go under the bus after all.

It's Nemo, but to be honest, can't be bothered to point and click and point and click ..., even though it's there on the task bar minimized. Normally just using ls, find, grep and tab completion does the trick. Only use fm as last resort on partition where can't remember directory structure and/or when need to get visuals of the filesystem. Don't really remember when fm last used, maybe two weeks ago or three weeks ago. :)

Now I have Pekwm up running three file managers, mc, 7zFM and xfe, chromium browser, google-earth, geany IDE and 05-devel, alsamixer. Installed toolkits fltk and fox only. I like it! :)

It is little and fast!

Nice... it's encouraging to see any and all attempts to minimize Gtk/Qt bloat.
Unfortunately... I'm now in the EDE/Compiz-Reloaded camp (same goal plus eyecandy).

The key to persistent "DE" remastering in that camp regardless of 003-"DE".xzm using either (w/ any "Porteus" .iso)
/porteus/base/06-bundle4environment.xzm or /porteus/modules/bundle4environment.xzm is...
/etc/slim/"slim.conf" (session = ede)
/etc/xdg/ede/ede-startup.conf ([wm] exec=compiz)
/etc/x11/init/"initrc" (ie... a link to init /etc/x11/init/initrc.ede)
To remaster Pek/Xfe persistance make (edit?) a module containing the following path(s) and file(s)...
/etc/pekwm/"menu"
/etc/slim/"slim.conf" (session = pekwm)
/etc/x11/init/"initrc" (ie... a link to init /etc/x11/init/initrc.pekwm)
/usr share/xfe/"xferc"
Changes to Xfe should be copied from /root/.config/xfe/"xferc" when remastering.

but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should consider.

@ wread... looks like I'm back in the PekWM camp.

Compiz has Gtk+2 dependencies so EDE is moot.
Better to use PekWM exclusively w/out a DE.

Also... Tint2 is a dealbreaker.
Depfinder (@ http://depfinder.sourceforge.net/ )
shows it has Gtk+2 dependency.

I'll probably use Bar (by Lemonboy).

My version of your build will probably use...
Xfe (FoX)... SnackAmp (Tcl/Tk)... TkDVD (Tcl/Tk) and NetSurf "framebuffer" (w/gstreamer only to play videos).

And perhaps...
(FoX?) https://sourceforge.net/projects/fxmoviemanager/
(Tcl/Tk) https://sourceforge.net/projects/tkffmpeg/

@n0ctilucient
I found out how to set the xkb to us intl variant! That way you can use accented vowels, ñ, etc..
You must add to your start script the line:

"setxkbmap -rules evdev -model evdev -layout us -variant altgr-intl" (without the quotes!)

then to write a-accent you must press right-alt a, so á...finally I can also write coño! in Pekwm!

Accents make colorful language more colorful. ;)

@n0ctilucient
I just finished a conference on Skype, using Pekwm and 08-skype.xzm (works ootb), with video camera and everything!
Up to now It seems to me that xfe full-fills the necessary FM functions, then I havn't felt the need to search for another file manager..

Hi wread...

I have a favor to ask... I need a custom .iso and I sent you a PM with the details.

In regard to Xfe the key to it's configuration is...
/usr/share/xfe/"xferc"

Simply (in root) configure it to your liking then copy/remaster
/root/.config/xfe/"xferc" to /usr/share/xfe/"xferc"

The key to PekWM configuration is...
/etc/pekwm/"menu"

Pls Note: You don't really need a panel... however for Network manager you need to
include it (the TUI binary is in /usr/bin) in the floating "menu" for WiFi.

Thanks... :beer:
