:heart::heart: Kibojoe Linux 17.04rc1 (Code 11417) - Manjaro Linux re-spin with JWM is ready :heart::heart:

I’m happy to announce our FIRST release candidate (RC1) of Kibojoe Linux (Manjaro Linux re-spin with JWM), codename Portela. So what is Kibojoe Linux? Kibo is one of three volcanic cones of Killimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa (Tanzania). We adopted the name joe from Joe Wingbermuehle, the creator and maintainer of Joe’s Window Manager (JWM), wrote a window manager and called it JWM to run on the X window system. This release comes with advanced graphical installer Calamares. Stable branch was used to create the install media. The system boots up with less than 170MB of RAM usage. For more information please read the Kibojoe JWM User Orientation Guide ( Menu > Support > Kibojoe > Kibojoe User Orientation Guide).

Obs.: The Kibojoe Linux installer is in: Menu > Applications > System > Install Kibojoe Linux.

#5

What is this? How much different is it from mhwd-tui?


#6

This is the code


Looks very similar.

@Holmes, congratulations, your forum and website also look very nice! I will test your new ISO and give feedback.


#7

@Holmes Let me know if you want torrents for this spin, in the Manjaro Torrents sourceforge page under the “spins” folder, like mGAMe and Mabox.


#8

hi all,
@Strit
yes, i would like to have the iso torrents.
how it works? only for the final versions?
@eugen-b
thank you, i wait your feedback!
@Chrysostomus
Kernel Driver User Settings Manager adds some commands to work with kernels, drivers and users. it is different from mhwd-tui, because KDUSM have some other options.

vlw fwi, Holmes :slight_smile:


#9

Yes, I only do torrents for the final release ISO’s.


#10

@Strit
ok…
when ready the final version warning you…:wink:
thank you so much :+1:

vlw fwi, Holmes :slight_smile:


#11

Dear @Holmes,
the ISO works fine. All the CLI tools start, the corrct config files get opened.
I’m missing a video player, gnome-mplayer might be a sane lightweight default.
It might be niceif you added a menu button to the tray. At least write it commented out in the tray code. The user can uncomment it if they need it. (I know there is Super+F1 shortcut for the menu available.)
I was wondering why I cannot simply launch pacli in terminal?


#12

hello @eugen-b

ok…

i already know what it is.
Pacli is in folder /usr/bin/kibojoe and not in folder /usr/bin/
you think it’s a problem?

@eugen-b
thank you very much for your comments
soon release the rc2

vlw fwi, Holmes :slight_smile:


#13

hi all,
news to rc2:

  • replace grub by grub-quiet.
  • replace catfish by flocate*.

*flocate (File Locate System) = a bash gui for mlocate.

vlw fwi, Holmes :slight_smile:


#14

FLocate

vlw fwi, Holmes :slight_smile:


#15

FLocate

i added other options

vlw fwi, Holmes :slight_smile:


#16

I’ve just used a live USB with Kibojoe for restoring the Grub, booted to TTY and I see a greeting with the info

username: manjaro
password: manjaro.

But the actual is

username: kibojoe
password: kibojoe.


#17

@Holmes, you can set this in the file /etc/issue


#18

thank you so much @eugen-b and @Chrysostomus

i’ve already made the change!
