Hi, I ve tried on usb-stick, everything worked otb on my old machine. Only some settings are counter-intuitive for me (e.g. tabbed layout), but they can be changed easily. If you decide to include more cli-apps, then we should design the terminal more (not only green on black). Maybe beautiful terminal-colors settings from rudyloren could be implemented? Best..., and thanx

ranger (i still have to figure this one out)
mpd/ncmpcpp  or cmus
weechat
urxvt would be a bit hard for i3 beginners i think, but yeah would be a good choice. But please keep in mind monospaced fonts could look weird with the normal rxvt-package from the repo. If you want to use fonts like monospace, Source Code Pro or etc. i normally have to use rxvt-unicode-patched

vim, I think everybody here that uses vim will install it nontheless so i think vim is not really necessary in a release

ranger is a bit minimalistic, to get a full working file manager out of it is some python knowledge needed and things like gvfs or the normal mount command. Wouldn't replace my file manager with it.

mpd/ncmpcpp is not everyones prefered choice since mpd is a server that sometimes is buggy :P again something that should depend on the user.

cmus is okay for a cli app since it's only a client unlike mpd

weechat or irssi are good choices in my opinion. I prefer weechat personally.

Just my opinion on that programs.

Hello,
I like the suggestions that Rudylorren has suggested and totally understand what Linuxkartoffel is saying. But MOC, Finch and Nano could also be considered, just some suggestions on command line programs as well for the i3 community edition. I was trying to create my version of an i3 community edition last month but I am not use to ManjaroISO and trying to make custom overlays and that; I could not get it to work haha. So I am really glad you have created this community edition.

Regards
Matthew

Yeah Finch is good, too. But i actually don't know if it supports otr if needed.

Also i wouldn't use conky on the desktop itself, i would use conky with i3bar. see: http://i3wm.org/docs/user-contributed/conky-i3bar.html

cli-apps suggestions (which I found good to learn resp. to use):

terminal: lxterminal is easy but not so configurable, urxvt is fine. probably we could add a spreadsheet with common linux commands (eg. as start document with hnb)
music: cmus/moc
file: ranger/mc (best combi)
text: wordgrinder, hnb (http://hnb.sourceforge.net/)
chat: weechat
time: tty-clock

Re-configuration of i3.iso because I do not like the usual manjaro-colorscheme a lot. most of cli-apps are implemented, even with firefox on it is running low on ressources. what do you think?






did some redesign..., now with transparency.

I just tried it out on a flash drive, and it behaved very strangely.  I couldn't change the container layout, the terminals opened as borderless windows in the middle of the screen, and neither the mod-shift-q nor the mod-shift-e shortcuts worked.  I checked the i3 config file and everything looked normal.  Do I have a bad iso, or am I just doing it wrong?
