No problem. Enjoy it. What are you using instead? Alacritty for the terminal.

I have to change over to pulseaudio and rebuild them later this week.

What is that service? The services that start at boot are in /var/service

Basic usage - start, stop, …

# sv up <services>
# sv down <services>
# sv restart <services>
# sv status <services>

You have something from Citrix running -

xmltec-xmlmail

That’s all I could find about that. I have no idea where that is coming from. Not running on any of my machines.

Edit - stop the transmission-daemon service.

It’s 10 AM EST and I’m about to upload them. Should have a link ~2PM EST.
Only big change is switching to pulseaudio and using cmus instead of moc for console player. Created a basic openbox menu.

Interesting, jgmenu is superior to the Openbox menu. It will have both?

Yes, like the first.

This is the mouse binding. Left-click is the openbox menu.

Void with openbox

If you want to start from a fairly minimal CLI and build your own -

Void Minimal

NetworkManager is still included so you can use nmtui to connect to wireless - so much more convenient.

Last uploads for a while. Summer vacation life stuff coming around the bend.

Good job on the menus.

Yes, kitty made the cut this time. MOD+Shift+Enter should be the binding. If you have multimedia keys, the volume controls should be working.
