I recently posted the below video on Y9utube, talking about SLiM themes; creating, modifying, and activating them.
In this second part we install some needed helper applications, VirtualBox guest utilities, as well as OpenBox. At this point we are still configuring the system outside of the GUI. But we will get OpenBox installed and running before the end.
At this point, if you are coming from the previous post, you should have everything installed to configure XDM as your Display manager (we already turned it on). If not, then you might want to go back and read the previous offerings in this series of posts. (more…)
In the last post we got x-windows up and working on our base arch install. This gives us a very basic GUI. Once we have x-windows working, we can move on to adding a Window Manager (WM), some helper programs as needed, some basic applications, and our Display Manager (DM). Please refer to the previous post to understand and set the base line from which we will proceed.Next Page »
