Openbox-xfce mix

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

Openbox-xfce mix

Post#1 by tome » 02 Feb 2015, 21:12

Another DE that I use.

Module and screenshots:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7elwcgmk5mwtmme/FmFMsdUIO8 -> openbox-xfce-mix

Notice/About:
Spacefm right click menu:
a) magic-changes - more controlled way of saving changes (clean system), you can store selected files/directories (inside root tree) outside live-filesystem (if changes-ro or changes=EXIT: is used)
b) install packages or move files to changes (if changes-ro or changes=EXIT: cheatcode is used)
c) easy way of copying files to rootcopy (freshcopy)

Spacefm desktop daemon - you see your files on desktop

Both spacefm and openbox menu on desktop

Geany + plugins
Parcellite, notes and weather plugin on panel

By default your Desktop, guest/.local/share (Trash) and usm database directories are stored on disk outside livefilesystem (see /etc/rc.local)

Updated xarchiver

Iso-images are automatically opened(mounted) in new spacefm tab

It is not enough ready (it is rather idea of customized DE), for example default file associations should be changed (mplayer), but it is ready to share. Locales contains only translations, you should set manually your locale and download needed glibc-i18n-i486 files (or do it in PSC).

Hello tome. This seems interesting. Is it possible to see an image of the resulting desktop environment?

Thanks.

Please go to https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7elwcgmk5mwtmme/FmFMsdUIO8 and then open openbox-xfce-mix folder. I can not paste it here because of resolution (outside 600, 700 pixels)
