Bento Openbox Vivid RC1 and RC2

The two new ISOs, are Release Candidates, and are for this reason reduced sized test versions ( 475MB) for a Vivid edition of Bento Village with the codename “Sushi”. They come with almost no application for everyday use, and tools for the advanced users.

La future Bento Vivid

La future Bento Vivid

 

As a reminder, Bento Openbox is a super light version built on Ubuntu and easy to use for everyone.

Here are a few programs contained in Sushi:

User Interface:

Midori to surf the web, geany as text editor and programming tool with syntax
highlighting,

Text tools:
sdparm, testdisk, htop, mc, lftp, hdparm lshw, openssh-server
openssh-client, rtorrent,

Network:
tools for the network include network-manager-gnome,
wpasupplicant, wpagui,

Transparency
xcompmgr is installed and configured, compton is installed
and waiting for the xcompmgr configuration files to be ported to compton.

There are also several community PPA and their program:

  • The “ppa:mati75/lubuntu-testing” provides Openbox 3.6.0 git with a patch written by Mati75 allowing to use xdg-autostart from the obsession project, instead of python-xdg if obsession is installed, and provides Midori 0.5.9 as a replacement to the old Midori 0.4.3 from the actual repositories;
  • The “ppa:kalgasnik/ppa” pour lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings, as it’s name states, provides a graphical user interface to configure the Lightdm login screen;
  • The “ppa:ravefinity-project/ppa” brings the vibrantly-simple-icon-theme, a beautiful and lean icon theme which comes with several colors.

The RC1 version contains resolvconf while the RC2 provides openresolv. I have not yet made my mind about which of the two does a better job for the resolver. Some feedback are needed in order to pick up one for the future final version.

As always, get to the Downloads page to get them.

A little Bento Sushi

Les versions en cours de construction ont pour nom de code “Sushi”. Je commence aujourd’hui la construction de Bento Sushi en utilisant l’image ISO de Ubuntu Mini Remix 14.04.1 64bits.

La version 32bits est déjà en ligne, elle porte la mention “rc4”, vous pouvez la trouver ici:

(la rc3 on oublie !)

Sushi Trusty rc4

Sushi Trusty rc4

Outils employés:

Ubuntu Mini Remix 14.04.1 – Ubuntu Builder. Il n’est plus maintenu, mais je tourne toujours en 12.04 (à jour) pour les constructions, donc ça fonctionne encore.

Ingrédients suivants:

Un sources.list complet à jour pour Trusty, puis après un “apt-get update” dans la console chroot de Ubuntu Builder, un ajout de clés d’authentification. (à cause du message NO_PUBKEY 16126D3A3E5C1192 à la fin de la mise à jour des sources).

Mise à jour complète, et extinction du système. (Pour qu’au redémarrage il puisse s’apercevoir qu’il a deux noyaux dont un à supprimer).

Redémarrage, suppression des paquets inutiles, et installation de Synaptic, ainsi que de software-properties-gtk qui sont indispensables, car il y a un accès chroot à Synaptic dans Ubuntu Builder.

Dommage que ce programme ne soit plus développé, car il est réellement facile à utiliser !
