We are now at ‘Rc’ release

Uploading a new iso, have gone ‘rc’. Made a few changes: Dmenu colours now fixed, is now called directly from i3 config file i3status bar config is now in ~/.config (make it a little easier to find and modify) config_edit fixed (typo) TODO: Will mess around with keybinds in config at some point. Edit Guide We are now at ‘Rc’ release

Getting there

Been working on i3 version for a few days now and am very close to going ‘rc’. Have one more thing to fix in installer (already done). Highlights: Cbatticon.. a systray icon that shows battery or AC power. Changed Wallpaper, really not been out this past 9 months so have not taken any new photos. Getting there

Issue with latest release

Seems that there is an issue with latest release. Step 8 of installer is failing with a readline error. Am now rebuilding last weeks iso (Openbox based) to see if that fixes the error. I tested my i3 iso today and it installed fine under a VM. Am concerned if issue is related too UEFI, Issue with latest release

Installer Fix and more changes

Have fixed an error in abinstall (couple of typos I made). Made more changes to iso to remove openbox packages and related configs, installer etc. Have still much more work to do want to get a more green! theme going and add in more keybinds. Will work on adding i3lock at some point. For now Installer Fix and more changes

Time for a change

ArchBang has been Openbox based for over ten years. Over the next few weeks I will be working towards switching to i3 tiling window manager. May well run i3-gaps as I do not want to scare users into a my minimal setup ๐Ÿ˜‰ Keybinds will change for some things, nothing dramatic and quite easy to Time for a change

Good news Bad news

Good news another week another iso, not really much has changed (package wise) over the week but I do like to keep things fresh ๐Ÿ˜‰ Bad news my boss has tested positive and I have today had the test. Have lost my sense of smell. Spent last weekend trying to set my usb stick on Good news Bad news

Another week another iso

Uploading a new up to date iso. Only minor changes this week to give a more green theme ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have had some questions about persistence in ArchBang, archiso does support it but it is limited and is a little awkward to set up. Hoping to test over the weekend to see how difficult it is Another week another iso

October Iso

Uploaded yesterday a new iso and lo and behold Arch updated its kernel overnight. Am rebuilding as I type. After watching DistroTube on you tube was thinking of bringing back compton (picom) for a bit of eye candy. Certainly his green theme interested me ๐Ÿ˜‰ Feel free to contact me if you have any issues October Iso
