Control Center for LinuxVillage
« le: 14 juin 2013 à 16:22:16 »
This is a hack of the Tinyme/Swift/Antix Control Center for LinuxVillage.  Download it here.  There are three components in the zip package -
  • village.sh - to be copied to /usr/local/bin
  • Village Control Center - .desktop file to be copied to /usr/share/applications
  • villagecc - folder of icons to be copied to /usr/share/pixmaps

It is based on the following software being installed -
  • Editor - juffed
  • Terminal - xterm
  • gtkdialog - see here.
There are nineteen functions - required software as follows.
  • Openbox Configuration Manager - obconf
  • Set Screen Resolution - lxrandr
  • Desktop Effects - Desktop Effects
  • Change Gtk2 and Icon Themes - lxappearance
  • Set Screensaver - xscreensaver-demo
  • Install Software - synaptic
  • Edit Sources List - juffed /etc/apt/sources.list
  • Choose Startup Services - services-admin
  • Language & Locale - keeptalking
  • Manage Users - users-admin
  • Set Date and Time - time-admin
  • Network Manager - wicd-gtk
  • Setup Local Network - gigolo
  • System Information - hardinfo
  • Show System Processes - htop
  • Printer Setup - Printer Setup
  • Configure Sound - alsamixer-gui
  • Partition a Drive - gparted
  • Remaster Your System - remastersys
Desktop Effects and Printer Setup are two scripts I wrote - the first can be found here and the other is found in VillageBox and Scorpio.
Keeptalking is a Semplice application and is also found in VillageBox and Scorpio.
Gnome-system-tools supplies time-admin and users-admin and can be installed via "apt-get install --no-install-recommends gnome-system-tools".

I have set the icons in a separate folder so that icon-theme changes don't mess things around.  The big issue is if default software changes.  For example, if wicd-gtk is replaced with network-manager-gnome, or if the default text editor or terminal is different.  This is just an example of how a Control Center could look - the final details would need to be thrashed out.  Of course the villagecc.sh file can be edited to take into account any differences - it's even easier than html!

I can think of one more I don't see anywhere.     xbacklight to set
screen brightness.

Oh good - xbacklight will neatly fill in the gap on the Desktop panel!

Nice work. Just a little detail, would it bother to name it Openbox Control Center rather than Linuxvillage Control Center ? We are a Linux Village and I don't quite see a center where the linuxvillagers would/should be controlled. :P

Nice.

It would be nice if you could generate the XML content when the application is started. This way you could check if program X is installed and then add it to the XML.
When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives.
