EDIT:
Okay, seriously I don't know what to think of Linux anymore.
After 5 years of daily usage, compiling and developing, I moved to windows for 6 months. I come back and nothing works. I give up. Have fun guys, I'm out.

And "for the record" I'm not a noobie...

This is a show your linux thread not a whine about linux thread if you don't have something to show then don't post and for the record I just installed Debian Squeeze yesterday and have all of my drivers working including my nvidia driver. There are steps you need to take to blacklist nouveau and if you get black screen you need to boot in to the command line and do it there. If you are trying to run a the nouveau driver go and get some help in the forums people are more than willing to try and help.

have you tried a debian netinstall? for the record I am using arch with btrfs dual booted with debian (a minimal netinstall) on a gpt drive, and although I've had some bootloader problems (some still unresolved) everything works. how are you trying to install arch? using shraks guide? that contiens pretyy good detail on what packages need to be installed for a desktop system, what alsa/xorg ones etc.

EDIT---

to be fair I installed arch before systemdbecame default- but I've since swapped it over following the wiki

This has nothing to do with you being a noobie this has to do with your ranting edited post cussing up a storm and going off before you edited it to make it civil.

maybe tarnix should try some good old LMDE for a while?
post #3946 of 7733
Back to dull colours, and helped someone with adding borders around everything so using that build right now.

Take your own advice.

You " just installed debian " but still neglect to post a screen.

I agree, Fluxbox customization is super cool. The styles seem pretty pointless though since all the apps use GTK+.
Out of curiosity, since Openbox doesn't come with a menu or panel or anything like that by default is it technically lighter weight than Fluxbox?

I've been doing some customizing with Fluxbox on Debian (most of my time has been spent reading manuals and threads) but I'm taking a break for now. I'll get back to it in a couple days and post some screens when I finish. wink.gif

openbox does have a root and cleint menu. I'm not sure, but I think they are around the same weight.
