• All New Rescue ISO!


    OK! It’s on it’s way😀. Just be careful, please. It’s the same repo I use for Deepin ;).

  • By the way, I’m using /configs/openbox for the Rescue ISO in case you didn’t know already ;).

  • shure ;)
    as i can see here:
    https://github.com/keeganmilsten/Antergos-Community-Editions/blob/testing/configs/openbox/packages/80-desktop.packages
    obmenu is in the package list, but on the ISO there is no right-click-menu at all.
    Second is that i do not see obmenu configuration file at https://github.com/keeganmilsten/Antergos-Community-Editions/tree/testing/configs/openbox/root-image/etc/skel/.config/openbox

    ~/.config/openbox/menu.xml
    

    should be the place for it…

    And here is also the place where i am not shure…
    /root-image/etc/skel/ is the right place to do changes on the live environment?

    hmmm… sounds like I’ll have to add that then😀. What do I put inside the menu.xml file though?

  • writing the manu by hand is way to 90ies or not?

    may we can use openbox-menu it is on the Antergos repo, idea was to have the menu autogenerated …
    But i would love to have a hint from @karasu here ;)

  • Good idea! Have to go for a few hours, but I’ll be back😀.

    This would affect new users, yes.

    @Keegan
    Just today I unified all config files for different DE’s we use. It’s here:
    https://github.com/antergos/antergos-desktop

    You can check the openbox folder there…

    Do you know if just installing this would solve our problem also @karasu? It seems like a simpler method for now…

  • Yep, it should read all /usr/share/applications/*.desktop files

    But you need a menu.xml file

  • @ Keegan
    Now I have got a working sample of your rescue iso.
    It does not seem to be ready yet. There are no menus at all.
    Lxterminal is working. I could open PCManFM and some of the programs. They seem to work too. So the iso could be used already for its purpose.

    I have noticed, that some stuff is missing (i.e. an editor) and that there are programs on the iso which you do not use (i.e. 2 different panels, linux-headers, virtualbox-guest-utils). I wonder why you have chosen lxpanel instead of tint2? As result you have got a quite heavy iso (1.1 GB) with only light functionality.

    I only know how to make puppy-isos but have no experience with arch-isos. So I cannot help with that.
    But I can help to set up openbox. Please have a look at my tutorial in this forum at ‘Developement’. The packages I suggest are all you need for a fully working openbox environment. More is not neccessary. If you add the rescue tools to that setup you will get a much lighter rescue-iso. And you will get a desktop that does not feel and look limited at all:

    p.s.: The pipe menu in my setup does not work anymore since yesterday’s upgrades. Use the command ‘openbox-menu lxde-applications.menu’ instead.

    Yep! That was an unexpected issue to tell you the truth :). However, as you can see, @karasu, @joekamprad, and I are working on that right now!

    Well, in that case, I shall add an editor right away😀. As for choosing lxpanel, I was unaware of exactly what tint2 was. I have never actually spent time using openbox, so it’s a learning experience for me too ;).

    Thank you! I’ve already looked that one over, but was unable to add everything there due to the fact that I cannot install anything from the AUR on my ISO😞. I shall take another look at it though!

    Thanks for the hint!

    Needs to be a complete menu.xml or just have to be empty file, or also can be a kinda standard as this from your new https://github.com/antergos/antergos-desktop ?

  • @Xaver would be much of help if you can involve to the project!

    I just copied the menu.xml file in antergos-desktop/openbox/… to my fork. I think I’m going to try building it again shortly and see how it goes😀.

    I have not used anything from the AUR for the base system.

    Of course you need a complete menu.xml. How should openbox create the menus, if there are no directions. After a fresh install of openbox you wil find the needed files in ‘/etc/xdg/openbox/’. Copy these files to ‘~/.config/openbox/’ in your home folder. Then you can edit menu.xml with obmenu, which is easy and intuitive to do. There is a good menu.xml in the antergos-openbox-setup’ package, which you can use to start with. (I would not install the whole package, because you do not need all its dependencies.)

    You can create a pipe-menu (command: ‘openbox-menu lxde-applications-menu’),
    create menus for programs to be run with sudo (command: ‘gksudo gparted’)
    and even create menus for programs to be run in the terminal (commands: ‘lxterminal -e testdisk’ or ‘lxterminal -e sudo -H testdisk’).

    I suppose, that the scripts to create the iso will ignore your personal settings. If this is the case copy your edited menu.xml back to ‘/etc/xdg/openbox/’, before you create the iso. Another option would be to copy them to ‘/root/.config/openbox/’. If the manual does not tell it is a matter of try and error.
    (Don’t forget to backup your original files. As long as you are still testing only switch them off by adding ‘_orig’ to the file or folder name. Then you can return to them, if something goes wrong.)
