[openbox] 18.0 beta 6

Openbox 18b6 testing ISO

Thank you for your participation.
Beta 6 is no longer available for download.

Keep an eye on announcements thread :slight_smile:

Thank you so much. This edition is getting better and better since the beginning.

Is there anywhere that decently describes the differences between the Beta and the Stable versions? Searching the Wiki gives almost nothing. Do they use the same repos (but different branches, eg testing/unstable rather than stable)?? Or completely separate?

Sorry this isn't related directly to your flavour, but a more general Manjaro question....

The differences is the branch from which they are build.

  • Alpha versions is build from unstable branch
  • Beta versions is build from testing branch
  • Releases is build from stable branch

At least this is how I build the ISO's

The ISO boots OK.
For some reason it doesn't load the amdgpu driver, modesetting is active, there are also no xf86-video-* packages installed. Maybe your implementation MHWD live scripts is broken?
I like how well ranger works in the temrinal emulator, but it doesn't work so well in TTY, see @Chrysostomus' latest fix

I would beg / recommend to install pacui, I think it would complement the desktop.

My fix was adding this to zprofile:

 source $HOME/.profile

Anyway, the $EDITOR needs to be set correctly

I am using defaults like every other profile. That is a shared Packages-Mhwd which contains the xf86-video-* packages.

Your wish is granted - personally I do not use it - but as it is only a script - why not?

I have tried TTY - ranger works well - loading txt files and most other files too.

EDIT September 6, 2018 8:00 AM
Tested in VB with minimal (LIVE) and I see no issues?

I have to add that I tested the minimal ISO.
The full ISO is downloading.

Now testing the full ISO.

  • It boots with amdgpu driver. Edit: I misread inxi output. It boots with modesetting driver. But an investigation of mhwd-live.log shows

  • ranger fails to open text files in TTY.
  • (almost forgot) The full edition has Firefox which doesn't launch from the top left main menu "Web Browser" icon. It does launch from Openbox right click menu Network -> Web Browser. The minimal has Chromium.

@Chrysostomus
With the minimal edition PCManFM is used for desktop icons.

PCManFM has preferences -> Terminal emulator = termite

But why won't the Manjaro-Architect desktop file launch the installer?

It launches from the desktop root menu and from the Applications -> System -> Manjaro Architect item but not from the PCManFM desktop shortcut.

It also launches from right click root menu -> Places -> Desktop -> manjaro-architect.desktop
It opens in Xterm then.

@Chrysostomus
Why have you commented the editors in .zshrc from the manjaro-zsh-config package?

Setting those variables makes ranger work correct!

The .profile only contains EDITOR which makes e.g. yaourt complain.

I have added xterm to the package list (as a fallback) - because the architect installer don't like the termite terminal emulator.

If you change the default terminal with Preferred Applications then the manjaro-architect.desktop opens in Xterm from PcmanFM.

Bspwm edition uses ~/.profile extensively for setting default applications.

I haven't set $EDITOR in manjaro-zsh-config, because different editions have different default editors (micro, nano, vim).

I know that - but that is not optimal as I expect it to open in termite.

I might be required to create add something to the live-overlay to have Architect launch correctly on the minimal edition - or disable desktop icons on the minimal edition.

Maybe simplify it all together and use Thunar on both editions effectively disabling desktop icons.

I get that - but nevertheless - it is a recent change in behavior of the zsh-config package.

What do you mean? Architect works fine in termite.

Seems like pcmanfm issue. I don't use the desktop launcher myself.

Nano was prevalent enough, now there is more fragmentation. Do you have a suggestion for solution?

An update on mhwd-live. I'm booting Awesome WM ISO now, there I have amdgpu loaded and mhwd-live.log looks better:

/var/log >>> cat mhwd-live.log
