# About I bought a Huawei Mate Book Pro X 2018 (i5 8G). As I don't use W*ndows and don't like to be controlled by an OS, but instead controll my computers, I installed Debian on day one. As I don't like W*ndows I don't like OSes that try be as "user friendly" as W*indows, so I don't use systemd, gnome, ... So this setup starts with a minimal Debian9, then I add X11, an xterm, a window manger and a browser. Nothing more is needed the way I work. On the way there are some more packages to controll the computer. And some packages are not allowed. This repository is a collection of config files and scripts for a system I like to work with. # Setup Debian 9.5 Setup debian 9.5 installer crashed: debian testing installed, then downgrade to debian 9.5 Packages added: xinput xrandr xscreensaver xdm acpi acpid openbox sysvinit-core chrome ... Packages removed: sudo dbus systemd avahi-autoipd avahi made shutdown-alex suid root group alex for unpriveliged user "alex" cp /sbin/shutdown /sbin/shutdown-alex chgrp alex /sbin/shutdown-alex chmod 4750 /sbin/shutdown-alex Modules: added nouveou to blacklist due to silent kernel panics in the modules (I don't use nvidia feature actually) # Usability Features X11 Keybinding Features: "WINDOW"-"Shift"-"Q" Shutdown "WINDOW"-"X" Xterm "WINDOW"-"W" Webbrowser "WINDOW"-"L" Lock Screen "WINDOW"-"+" Zoom X11 "WINDOW"-"-" Zoom X11 Also working: brighter, darker, louder, quieter, mute ACPI Features: "Powerbutton" Suspend "Lidclose" Backlight off, Shutdown after 30 minutes "Lidopen" Backlight On Openbox Config Mouse follow Focus Click Border to Raise/Lower Window Two Finger scroll through virtual desktops Two Finger move windows to virtual desktops using borders X11 Config Touchpad Natural Scrolling X11 RootWindow Status Information "osd" Network WLAN Network Selector using ncurses Automatic USB/LAN Adapter configuration Disabled all Auto/Magic Discovery (avahi, 169.x.x.x, ...) # Hardware Information FAN Control: "Sensors" does not detect fann speeds.
