Title: NuTyX 20191216 JWM Miyo Linux Available
Post by: Thierry on Fri Dec 06 23:58:04 2019
I'm please to annonce the new ISO from my friend Miyo Linux.

It's a minimalist ISO with an high customise JWM Desktop Environnement. Beautifull.

Thank you! It's all Thierry's work on NuTyX though...I just themed it.  ;D

Hope you enjoy it! I like falkon too!  ;)

I installed it on my laptop and it is amazing. I would love to have cbatticon for battery monitoring since it is missing from repos. Will keep posting more while I configure Nutyx JWM according to my needs. Thanks for this lovely release.

Thanks saleem; nice to hear from you! I'm not familiar with cbatticon. I don't know if it would help or if you would like it, but if you enable the xfce4-power-manager, you can then add its icon to the system tray from the power manager's GUI. Hovering your mouse over the icon in the system tray shows battery usage. You can't see the mouse in the screenshot below, but it's there.  ;D

Hello all

I have run MIYO Linux (Devuan+openbox) on my old Sony NR11M for about a year now but decided to give the new NuTyX-jwm a spin. At the moment I have just got it on a usb running in live mode. The only problem I have is with the keyboard layout.

Selected the "uk" keyboard from the list and when filling in user details the keyboard layout is correct, but when live system has booted the keyboard reverts to a "us" layout. Checked /etc/sysconfig/console which states uk.map.

Also there are no keyboard maps in /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/ but they are in /usr/share/keymaps/i386 although I doubt this is a factor.

Any help appreciated as is the work by both NuTyX and MIYO.

Hello Gaz83

Yes Indeed this bug will be ( I hope) fixed in the 11.3 release.

You need to adjust manualy the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-keyboard.conf file

add:
Code: [Select]
Option  "XkbLayout" "uk"before the line:
 
Code: [Select]
EndSection

Thank you for replying with the solution. I can now go ahead with a full install this weekend.

Hello, is there a specific package where all your work is included oiym about the jwm ISO ? Maybe your work is on github or something else ? I ask for it because I want to make your JWM iso available in Yaolinux too.

Hi rems; thank you.

I'm slowly getting it on github, and Thierry will put the finishing touches on it when it's finished. I've gotten sidetracked for awhile, but I hope to get it finished soon.

Thanks john!

Since posting those configs, I've made a few slight changes on the latest version. Hopefully, you'll be able to grab it from github soon. ;)

I do want to warn you...

I don't know if it will affect Alt or not, but the commands for the "Theme Changer" (in the .jwmrc files) may not work on some other Linux systems. I had to make scripts to get it to work on Devuan, and though the commands in the scripts are similar to what is used in NuTyX-JWM, they're different.  :o.  ;D

Thanks again!

Well as the saying goes if it aint broken just break it .. amsure thats the linux way :)

that be great when its up on github .. just downloaded the new iso with updates going to try on 2 old laptops bring them from the grave
just a idea for future releases folks may use this on old machines maybe include tlp and powertop in the iso just help the old stuff get a new life well laptops atleast

That's a great idea...thanks! In fact, I had actually considered including tlp to begin with, but I like for people to be able to install what they want on their system.  :)

It's kind of ingrained into me because of my past experiences...

Back when I was a distro-hopper (and before I learned how to build my own systems from something like NuTyX, a Debian netinstall, Arch, etc.), I would spend tons of time removing preinstalled software and replacing it with what I wanted to use. After a while, it got REALLY tiresome doing that over and over each time I installed a new system...  ;D ...and I thought to myself, "I wish someone would make a base system available so that people could just install what they want."  ;)

Thanks john!

Am still on a learning curve enjoy distro hopping  i need to try find that one system i can stick with
think my poor hard drives need a rest  ;D i want to learn build from the bottom up sometimes i cheat browsing github and install in vm and run the scripts and see the out come and modify them

what base system would you say is best to build from and where can i find good guides many thanks

Post by: oyim on Fri Jan 31 05:22:20 2020
In my experience, and I don't mean for this to sound like I'm dodging the question  ;D  but I think that the best bases to build from are the ones that you like the best. I prefer NuTyX and Devuan. I do still mess around with Debian periodically though...simply because Debian was the system that I settled on after all of my distro hopping. Of course, then again...Devuan is Debian without systemd.

I'm not just saying this because this is the NuTyX forum, but I really enjoy building a system from the NuTyX base system the most. Thierry has given easy to follow instructions on the NuTyX website. My first NuTyX system was Openbox that I built from the base system. The base system can be downloaded from the Downloads page here...
https://nutyx.org/en/downloads
...scroll down to the .isos located under the heading "For the regular NuTyX user", and click on the one you want to download. Installation is the same as the JWM .iso. It helps to have a smart phone (or another computer) so that you can view the instructions for how to build a desktop on top of the installed base system. It helps to read over the instructions a time or two before actually doing them, because it helps to know which of the instructions you may want to use or not use. The instructions are located here...
https://nutyx.org/en/finish-up

The learning curve on NuTyX for me was figuring out what some packages are called in NuTyX compared to other distros; such as, lxterminal is called lxde-terminal in NuTyX. See my note at the end of this post, and I'll show all of the packages that I install in NuTyX for creating the JWM .iso.

RPM distros...
I won't be much help here. The only real experience that I have with an RPM distro is PCLinuxOS. Unfortunately, they don't offer a base system .iso...or they didn't the last time I checked.

Arch...
I haven't messed with Arch in quite some time, so I'd be rusty on building a system from Arch. However, my friend eznix has some up-to-date instructions on his Sourceforge site if you want to download them and look them over...
https://sourceforge.net/projects/ezos/files/ArchStuff/

Devuan/Debian...
I don't know of an install guide. I used to have a video on YouTube showing how to do it, but that was on a previous channel of mine that's no longer available. I can give you some basic-quick instructions that may be of some help.

1. Download the netinstall .iso
2. During the installation, you'll reach the point where you choose a desktop environment to install. REMOVE all of the check marks except the one next to Standard System Utilities. In other words, you won't install a desktop at all.
3. Finish the installation.

When you reboot into the system, you'll only have a full-screen CLI. This is where you install the packages that you want. So...

1. Log in with your username and password
2. Become root (use su, because sudo won't work).
3. Install what you want. You just need to know the names of the packages that you want to install. If you're familiar with package names and what you need, then you'll be fine. If not, you can use apt search to help.

I know that wasn't much help...sorry. If I run across a good guide, I'll let you know.
_____________________________________________

Okay, here's all of the packages that I install on the NuTyX-JWM .iso. This is just for a reference in case you want to use it when trying to build from a base NuTyX system...you probably won't need all of these packages. Also, some of the packages are there so that xdgmenumaker will work for the applications menu.
