OK, I'm in. The annoying part is over, and now the hard work starts.
I intend to write guides for installation of the graphical environment and other 'bits' that many users would like.
When they're complete, I'll send them your way and you can see what you think of them.
Thanks for the help!
I hope I won't have too many questions, now that I can have the browser to search for answers in the same workspace as the terminal I'm grappling with! (previous to now I was having to logout and reboot from antiX USB every time I wanted to post on these forums or look for help)
If you want an ultra lightweight setup, I recommend, jwm.
Also, if you know how to set jwmkit up, its even easier, gives you a menu and a way to a poweroff easily, or via pressing a few keys at the same time.
only thing you need to do, is make sure, you change doas.conf to change the part of doas.conf to include these new two lines:
## Allow members of group wheel to execute any command
permit persist :wheel
## Same thing without a password
#permit nopass :wheel
## Allow tedu to run procmap as root without a password
permit nopass localuser as root cmd /sbin/poweroff
permit nopass localuser as root cmd /sbin/reboot
permit nopass localuser as root cmd /usr/sbin/s2ram
## Allow members of group power to execute power commands
permit nopass :power cmd openrc-shutdown
permit nopass :power cmd runit-halt
permit nopass :power cmd runit-shutdown
permit nopass :power cmd halt
permit nopass :power cmd poweroff
permit nopass :power cmd reboot
permit nopass :power cmd shutdown
## Allow root user to execute any command
#permit nopass root
Btw, you may notice a third line, right?
aka, s2ram as well,
However, there is no point, unless you have installed this:
also, when installed, it has a few steps for you to do, before iI think it would be to its maximum effectiveness.
that being said,
I detracted somewhat, from my original reply,
but there is one GOOD reason, you should use jwm...
JWM, uses the least cpu power, of any of the window managers that are still maintained, have a taskbar and even an application menu.
Thus, it is awesome for me, for darn sure, but you can feel free to do things however you like.
I just thought I would let you know this...
If you want, something more flashy, Lumina Desktop is also an option.
Hope this helps!
