I am using AL exclusively on my dual boot (other distro: ubuntu). With the long distance education programs these days, other family have to often use the machine for zoom calls and other stuff like that. For a more familiar interface, I log them into ubuntu. However, I was thinking if there is a set of scripts on AL itself that makes the interface more user friendly (or shall I say, user-familiar) for those who may only have to be on the computer for short periods, and also my kids who are quite young, they really only know simple gui-interfaces. For example, I open a terminal with alsamixer for volume control, but that is not something they can do easily. Maybe a set of scripts that places simple controls (albeit in terminal/curses) in easy to find places etc.
Just a thought—I’m not really qualified to think in depth about this, but thought I should post it here. I think this is a relatively frequent use case with the new distance learning stuff going on everywhere.
I use only DWM. Maybe openbox might be easier for the little ones? Their workflow is zoom + some WYSIWYG editor + internet.
