• Allow user to create custom installations


    Hi

    Is it possible to let the user create a custom installation?
    Imagine i want Openbox, google-chrome, bmpanel2, vlc, sublime-text, …
    Is there a way that i could create my own set of software to be installed?

    This can be done using several methods: allow user to link a URL, allow user to edit the list of packages to be installed inside Cnchi, …
    And if possible allow user to run some post-installation scripts.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Even though this is not supported, you have some options:

    1. Install a Base system and then install whatever packages you like

    2. Install a DE system and then add/remove the packages you want

    3. Finally, there’s an option that HAS NOT BEEN FULLY TESTED, that is give Cnchi your desired list of packages (as you suggest).

    Cnchi gets its list of packages from the Internet, but you can instead give a xml file with the packages.

    Check packages.xml that’s in the data subdirectory (inside Cnchi dir).

    Then, you can call Cnchi this way:

    sudo cnchi -p /path/to/your/packages.xml
    

    Of course, use this at your own risk!

  • I forgot to add that we’re working on something more usable and easier to setup by our user base.

  • That’s really nice
    What about Post installation scripts? like creating some files at ~/.config

  • Hi,

    You can modify [b:3ml4jvgq]postinstall.sh[/b:3ml4jvgq] in scripts directory before running Cnchi

    Cheers!
