BbxBang - a PacBang clone
PacBang is well known to some of you.
So Carl Duff - where ever you are - and @mandog thank you for your efforts.
For a long time I have wanted to make something similar - running on the latest Manjaro kernel.
PacBang and BbxBang now uses same PacBang theme. The only real differences now is Arch or Manjaro - tough choice - I know.
- PacBang based on Arch
- BbxBang based on Manjaro
The basic Manjaro system has been stripped down to an absolute minimum getting as close to PacBang as possible. In fact I used PacBang ISO as a template - also keeping the static root menu (applications is a pipe-menu) - nice links to basic configurations.
- alsa sound
- conky stats
- dmenu launcher
- firefox browser
- lxerminal terminal
- nitrogen wallpaper
- tint2 panel
- xed text editor
- xreader pdf reader
- gpicview picture viewer
Besides the bare necessities mentioned you will need to add your personal touch - your favorite applications, media player and codecs - what ever you fancy - using the pacman
Network is now Network Manager - this increases the overall memory consumption slightly from ca. 100MB to ca. 135MB.
Direct download from OSDN
Sources is migrating to OSDN. ISO, checksum, torrent and signature is available at
Available based on either pure Arch or Manjaro
A word on installation
The BbxBang ISO uses Calamares for offline installations.
NOTE: The Architect app cannot install BbxBang.
A word on drivers
The ISO only has drivers from the package
That means the drivers for your WiFi or your graphics may be absent. The best you can do is to tether your phone using USB and then install the drivers you need.
If you install in VirtualBox - remember to
- Use VBoxSVGA driver
- Add the the virtualbox packages after restart
- enable vboxservice.service
