Where is manjaropek?
« on: 17. March 2015, 07:22:38 »
I have received messages inbox, asking how is the development of ManjaroPek.

I can say that I'm working, and hopefully can immediately release an iso for testing.

When? I can not say a date. There is much to do, there is a whole concept of change behind the new version.

What should change? My thoughts for the future of manjaropek, is to do something light and as simple as possible, something that is to the point. The ManjroPek, will be a minimal system, with fewer applications, and prioritizing the most lightweight applications.

The possible application list:

Browser: Palemoon
File Manager: XFE
Terminal: rxvt-unicode
Image viewer: Feh (more integrated into xfe scripts)
music player: Moc or Alsaplayer
Video player: Mpv
RSS / Podcast: Newsbeuter
IRC / Chat: weechat
Calendar: calcurse

For now this is it. Any feedback or suggestion is welcome.

I like that, I really do like it a lot!

Pick the apps you think are best, if someone does not like something they can replace it themselves.

I'm ready to test your ISOs on a 32-bit system  ;)

I will also be willing to test it, when it is released :) and I also like the idea of minimal ISO for ManjaroPEK.

1) Which DM will you be using?

2) will you be including pekwm-menu?

3) How about an MPD client instead of alsa player? I feel like MPD would be a more popular choice, and you could just include CLI MPD, and users could install their preferred client?

Dynamic menus are slower.

But a necessity.

Why? I would rather not have it. Editing the meu file is easy & quick. Previous versions did fine without it and people liked it. tropper did say he wants to keep it simple & light.

Proper minimalsm is a system that is operated solely on cli.

I guess there is minimalism within the confines of an X environment, and without X confines. I can't imagine using an all-text environment with no gui. :o lol


Best regards.

It is an annoyance to do it for every package you install. I install new software almost daily, and I'm fairly certain I'm not the only one.

Well then just maybe you should install your own dynamic menu. It's been like this from the first release. If that does not work for you then there are different flavours to choose from.

tropper must do what he wants to do at the end of the day, he owes us nothing.
