    I’m looking for a few bspwm fans (okay, maybe one…) to test and help improve an antiX19 based respin I’m working on. Are there any takers???

    Hey,
    I would love to see a respin with bspwm. I used bspwm a while with Voidlinux and switched now to Antix19 because I wanted to see how antix evolved with the new Debianrelease.
    You can send me your respin for testing purpose. I am curious how and if you implemented the Antix controlcenter e.g

    I am actively running bspwm on MX… I am building a version on the beta version of antiX19. I will let everyone know when the antiX version is ready. I plan to run it as a rolling version of antiX Debian.

    @Koo I am actually okay with that, I guess. Right now, I’m using the beta as a simple debug/testing platform. I’m not sharing my work yet because of the uncertain update path for others. I have given serious thought to using Void as a base distro because it is non-systemd and rolling. I eliminated the idea of using either Gentoo (to big a deal to install and keep operational, updates are pretty slow); Artix (too small a base and iffy suppport). If I were to bite the bullet and use systemd, I’d be inclined to use ArchLabs because of their extraordinary community activity and interest in the bspwm, polybar, space…

    @manyroads I installed Void awhile ago only thing wrong was dual booting gave me trouble..Void worked well and the WM and command stuff was pretty up to date. Not for me.

    ArchLabs would a be a great choice awesome community too and Arch lives happy with dual booing plus they have a command line installer keeps the GUIs at bay.
    Download I just did. archlabs-2019.01.20.iso 2019-01-21 638.6 MB

    ArcoLinux looks tempting too has so many iso versions this guy covers the lot.

    ArcoLinuxB iso’s Awesome , Bspwm , Budgie , Cinnamon , Deepin , Gnome , Openbox , i3 , Mate , Plasma , Qtile , Xfce , Xmonad.

    systemd has never given me any trouble what so ever with Debian-10 one awesome system sense buster come along..

    @Koo I’d be interested in your take on ArchLabs. I’ll try to give it another spin in VBox (I never tried their distro with bspwm).

    btw. I have Void now running in VBox. I’ll futz with it to see how I like it. I appreciate their excellent wiki and wm community (especially their bspwm interests); I think this is a worthwhile test for me.

    Yes, dobbie03 does a wonderful job.

    Edit: been working some with bspwm on archlabs today. It and xfce 4.14 are sweet. 😉
