    I always like CrunchBang (#!) when it was about, so I put Bensenlabs (offshoot of #!) and antix together as a proof of concept. It works will.

    I’ll be modifying the bunsenlabs install script so systemd doesn’t get install and replace a few apps with personal choice and rebrand the wallpapers etc.

    If anyone interested I’ll put a link to an iso and md5.

    So basically a openbox respin? Howdy and Welcome.

    Cool Beans. I know there is desire for a openbox spinoff of AntiX I wish you luck in your build process and feedback.

    I didn’t see any links. I would like to see what you created.

    I like OpenBox, and liked #crunchbang once upon a time, too. I still like IceWM, but who knows? How things are implemented is important to me.

    It’s still around … some kind of.

    Ummmm, noclue, I do know where to find bunsenlabs. I really don’t want something systemd based.

    I was looking for a link to the op’s respin called AntixLabs, which he offered to post.

    Hi Bob,
    Here’s the link:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/antixlabs/files/
    It’ll be available for a few days. It is basically an Antix base with Bunsenlabs on top. The menus need sorting and a total rebrand of course. It is a proof of concept. I will be taking this further…
    Thank you for your interest and any feedback is welcome.

    FWIW I gave the sourceforge download a go. I landed on a post-installation screen which offered no install option (that I am able to find) nor does it offer the bl exit (logout function). Otherwise the install looks exactly like BL.

    Until it installs there’s really not much more I can do…

    Hello, BunsenLabs ex-developer here 🙂

    @OP: please note that the BunsenLabs installation script adds the Debian repositories and so makes it possible to install systemd.

    If you want a #! clone that doesn’t use systemd then perhaps look at CROWZ[1] or STAR[2], both are Devuan-based.

    @manyroads: the bl-exit package depends on systemd.

    I think the original #! exit script used polkit to allow a normal user to reboot & shutdown but it wouldn’t work with the current version of that program.

    Your Snapshot wouldn’t let me run away (1st screenshot). 🙂

    I would personally never attempt to install something that presents itself like … (2nd screenshot).

    But — I understand that it was just a very early pre-alpha.

    Otherwise the install looks exactly like BL.

    It maybe functions ‘exactly like BL’ (that said, ‘will’, once after it’s done) but, it definitely doesn’t look exactly the same.

    BL actually looks pretty cool (OK, usability is not that great but, the ‘look’ is still pretty cool).

    the BunsenLabs installation script adds the Debian repositories and so makes it possible to install systemd.

    FYI, debian repositories are already active among stock antiX sources.list.d entries
    and I can’t find anything within BunsenLabs scripts which would disturb//override
    the antiX /etc/apt/preferences.d/00systemd

    @skidoo, yes, thanks for the information, I was mistaken there.

    APT indicated that systemd could be installed but now that I actually try it eudev prevents the action from being carried out, sorry for the noise.

    @noClue, your screenshots show BunsenLabs Hydrogen (based on Debian jessie) but the OP’s spin is based on BunsenLabs Helium, the colours were changed to match the Debian stretch themes (SoftWaves or whatever it was called).

    Correct.
