Trinity Desktop Spin?

#1 Post by chiguy1256 » Mon Apr 23, 2018 9:16 pm

Is a Trinity Desktop spin being developed for AntiX? Just curious. Thanks.

not by the dev team, but I imagine such a thing could be built on top of antiX-core and then the snapshot utility used to make an iso.

you would need a source for trinity deb packages.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Official antiX is all about window managers.

Trinity is a DE so it won't fit in with that group of WMs.

Have you asked on the antiX forum? Or tried respinning it yourself?

another alternative is: http://exegnulinux.net/
It's Debian -based (devuan, actually). I've booted it & found it to be solid (no crashes, no noticeable memory leaks across a 3 or 4 day session)

@bled, would you skim this this page https://github.com/DebianDog/Jessie/wiki/Porteus-boot
and comment whether it still seems accurate, still applicable when using the stretch-based TrinityDog?
From test-driving the jessie version a while back, I foggily recall using something like
porteus-boot changes=EXIT along with "save2flash" terminal command to perform mid-session waypoint save operations
to acheive a result similar to antiX "semi-automatic mode persistence".

Ah, reminds me to mention:
someone in the MX forum asked about the possibility of getting frisbee networking program into MX.
The version shipped in TrinityDog might be the most likely compatible candidate.

I checked frisbee a while back, but there wasn't any source code available, just a deb

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=64472
^----- a tar.gz containing "source code for the binary parts" is here, but...

In linux "everything is a file"

In PUPPY LINUX "most everything is a symlink pointing to a file which points to a smokey01 -hosted .pet which, when converted/extracted, contains a file mentioning (via an inline comment) revision of the symlink in version suchandsuch authored by soandso on a given date along with what the local weather was on that date and the brand of tea the author was sipping..."

Yeah. And the frisbee files (bash+gtkdialog) are laden with references to wonky-named (and wonky pathed) external files presumed to be present in any puppy installation... and some of the user-facing frisbee parts are AppRun files (which presume use of roxfiler)
so, basically... this: https://i.imgur.com/h7G0HND.gif

Could you elaborate on what you mean when you say it is perfect?
I'll go try to find some reviews on it in the meantime. Thanks.

So, I imagine you could add the Trinity distro's stretch repos to antiX or MX, install the desktop, and see how much fire and smoke come out.

The repo does have source files, but porting them over to our repos would involve a lot of work. Any volunteers?
