    For those who might be interested, I have just completed my ‘initial’ basic build of antiX19 with dwm (tiler) as my window manager (wm); I have also completed a fair amount of testing and tweaking.

    The setup is significantly different from a standard antiX build. The following items have been removed entirely:

    
    --IceWM
    --fluxbox
    --jwm
    --hlwm
    --slim
    --roxterm
    --rox-filer
    --etc....

    The following have been added/ augmented for use:

    
    --dwm
    --st-simple terminal
    --slstatus
    --rofi
    --zenity
    --thunar
    --lightdm
    --flatpak
    --numerous console apps

    I have also swapped out a bunch of apps and replaced them with others.

    In order to sync my antiX setup with an arch setup I have, I used flatpak for thunderbird, skype, zoom, and firefox. (That way I don’t have to deal with old Debian versions of those apps).

    I’ll create a more detailed write-up on the setup in the near term (when I get around to it in my Covid enforced ‘free-time’.)

    Well @BobC that’s a long tale, imbued with great sadness and travail. Because of the Intel i5-gen 10 chipset on my Free Inspiron, I had to build from full on an old machine (Acer) then install my base antiX-dwm software including Linux kernel 5.6.10 build take a snapshot on my oldie, and then install everything on my Inspiron 5493. Et voilá.

    Nothing to it… 😉

    I have machines like that too.

    They have “personality”, LOL.
