Re: RUFUS image tool Alternative for RasPi OS

In the years I have been on Linux my personal fav tool that I have found is MKUSB. It is a Ubuntu tool but works well for Debian and Debian biased distro's like rpios. I use it on Rpios and Ubuntu for Rpi (and others) Do some research BEFORE using as it is not super easy on the first try (But there ...

Re: I have built a JWM desktop

Ok so I've done a major check mark on my list of things to learn. I have been on Linux going on 20 years soon. I've been wondering how hard it would be to run my own Linux build without systemd. I am officially posting this from a systemd less Linux build. Only downside is it took synaptic with it. ...

Re: I have built a JWM desktop

Apparently my notification-daemon is not sunning either

What is the startup command you use?

systemctl --user enable notification-daemon.service

Produces for me:

Failed to enable unit: Unit file notification-daemon.service does not exist.

Re: different kind of launcher

I intend to next time I use terminal.

My goal a while now was to move beyond text bash, and thanks for showing me zenity.

It is simple enough for me to use.

I completely get the concept of how to use it.

Perfect match for my needs.

Re: different kind of launcher

Thanks for the connman suggestion.

When I installed it and tried to run it my network card was soft blocked.

I do have a solution worked out with zenity, works fairly well.

If you have tips on making connman work let me know.

PS I don't use the Raspberry Pi desktop it's never been installed.

Re: I have built a JWM desktop

Currently my code resides in 4 Scripts. That's just to help me distinguish if an error happens which piece of code is the culprit. When I've got everything working I will pull it all back into one script. And the reason my code is in Brackets to run Scripts is because I will be adding a variable=$()...

Re: I have built a JWM desktop

Do you know a simple way to write a small program that opens a menu?

Not using terminal, sonething gtk perhaps.

Just a menu nothing else, select and launch a bash script from a gtk text menu.

The idea is to click an icon on the task bar and have a menu of bash scripts.

Select and run.
