Easy Debian LXDE simplified for New users
 
5 Attachment(s)
first of all i want you to know that i don't know much about Linux but i love my N900 & LXDE... i still remember the day i read 45 pages and was awake till 4am just to search how to change appearance Debian LXDE... i know most of you know much more then me but i hope there might be someone who might find it Helpful... :)

so lets start

Configure Appearance

Taskbar appearance..
hold mouse on the taskbar and go to "panel preferences" then select appearance tab and select image "background.png" i.e
usr/share/lxpanel/background.png (we are in this folder by default)

Start menu logo..
to change the logo of start menu go to the same panel preferences and select "panel applets" tab.. now in the list click on "menu" and press the edit button in the right and select the logo(png) you want make sure image(png) size is 36x36...

Window style..
go to start-menu/preference and select "openbox configuration manager" you will see a lot of window styles in themes
the one i have chosen is "Onyx-black"..
______________________________________________

To Configure Sound in LXDE

In order to initialize sound on a fresh installation of Easy Debian, open XTerminal and do:

Code:

debbie
xmms2d -o pulse

Leave that running, open a second XTerminal session and do:

Code:

debbie lxmusic
__________________________________________________


Launch LXDE applications in Maemo... Or Debbie Commands

open XTerminal(NOT AS ROOT) and type:

Gimp
Code:

debbie gimp
______________________



Vlc media player(need to be installed via synaptic package) manager
Code:

debbie vlc
Attachment 18011
______________________



Smplayer (need to be installed)
Code:

debbie smplayer
______________________



Email Client IceDove
Code:

debbie icedove
______________________



Openoffice Writer
Code:

debbie ooffice -writer
______________________



epiphany browser
Code:

debbie epiphany
______________________



aqualung music player(needs to be installed i guess) EDIT - Portrait mode supported
Code:

debbie aqualung
Attachment 18257
______________________




uget download manager (needs installation)
WARNING - U NEED TO SPECIFY FILE SAVE LOCATION OR YOU WILL LOOSE ALL THE SPACE IN "HOME" AND ".DEBIAN"...
what works for me is
"/home/user/MyDocs/downloads"
open xterm n type
Code:

debbie uget-gtk
______________________



pcman file manager (i personally feel its better then maemo filemanager)... coz its multi-tab, Supports Portrait orientation, we can enable hidden-files, thumbnails,image-viewer/slide show,and can play music if we set "aqualung" as default audio player, and same goes for videos if Vlc or Smplayer is installed :) EDIT - Portrait mode supported
Code:

debbie pcmanfm
Attachment 18010



File Searching( in maemo) "its really a bliss"
Code:

debbie pcmanfm --find-files
as it starts in " /home/user/ " by default we need to add location where to search.. by clicking star(add) then browse where you want to search or "All local disc partition"..
Supports Hidden files & folder search, and again we can launch audio(aqualung), images and videos(vlc or smplayer) from here too, OR just hold click on a file and select open
or we can open the file location in "pcman file manager"
Attachment 18036
________________________________
EDIT - Almost All of Debbie App's Supports "Portrait Mode"

Hope its Helpful... :)

It plays on ubuntu karmic (installed to partition), but it's super laggy.

goto Tools>Preference>video and change the Output to "ASCII-art video output" (note - it works wel for videos of low res n low bitrate the image attached is a 320X220res video)
