abarbarian posted a topic in Bruno's All Things LinuxGNUstep/Library/WindowMaker/ThemesLatest news is WM has an entry in the Arch Wiki its own page no less. https://wiki.archlin...hp/Window_Maker This thread is slightly out of date but is full of useful stuff. Anyone wanting to try out Window Maker on Arch will find these packages useful. https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/windowmaker/ (last update 2020) or https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/windowmaker-crm-git (last update 2022) https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/windowmaker-extra/ https://www.archlinu.../any/menumaker/ https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/?O=450&SeB=nd&K=wm&SB=n&SO=a&PP=50&do_Search=Go https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/?O=500&SeB=nd&K=wm&SB=n&SO=a&PP=50&do_Search=Go https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/?O=550&SeB=nd&K=wm&SB=n&SO=a&PP=50&do_Search=Go I have not tried out the "menumaker" package. Instead I brought my main menu up to date with this tip from the WM home site. It is worth the time reading the "Doc's" at the site. https://www.windowmaker.org/docs/installation.html There are some dock apps at the AUR but not all of them run. There are loads and loads of dock apps to be found on the web. Do not be put of by the fact that development on some of them stopped decades ago. I managed to get a 1999 dock app to run though I was told that I really should have made an Arch package out of it first. With a bit of reading up and some minor twiddling I recon most reasonably experienced linux users would be able to find heaps of dock apps and get them running on Arch. From the wiki https://en.wikipedia...ki/Window_Maker To avoid litigation take note Anyone playing with Raspberry Pi's might find this window manager a perfect fit both for its low use of resources and its ease of customisation using simple coding.

Distrobox, Quickly & Easily Fire Up Different Distros On Your System.
abarbarian posted a topic in Bruno's All Things LinuxDistrobox 1.3 Released For Quickly & Easily Firing Up Different Distros On Your System 89luca89 / distrobox project home page. There is a video on the page which is well worth a look. Distrobox has been successfully tested on these hosts Distrobox guests tested successfully with the following container images: distrobox/docs/usage well worth a read before using distrobox/docs/useful_tips well worth a read before using From my reading it seems easiest and safest to use distrobox with rootless Podman on a personal pc. If using on a remote pc extra care and steps must be taken for security. https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Podman#Rootless_Podman There are AUR offerings for distrobox and distrobox-git. The "distrobox" offering is the most recently updated. https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/distrobox This looks to be a super project and pretty safe to use if using on your own pc. For instance I could use it with Arch in a container, fiddle about with it to destructin and not cause any damage to my main install.
abarbarian posted a topic in Bruno's All Things LinuxI have been keeping an eye on the Docker program for some while and whilst I have yet to give it a run I think it is one of the most exiting developments in the IT world. It seems to have some advantages over programs like VM or Virtual Box. Not familiar with docker ! Well if you do not get up to speed then like the dinosaur you will become extinct.Here is a some information to stop that happening. Solomon Hykes Explains Docker (2013) I know I am a couple of years late in posting this but as they say better late than never. So this thread is dedicated to Docker images that are becoming available. Docker images of Kali Linux 2.0 (2015) Has anyone used Docker ? If so please do post your experiences.
