Okay, so I have used Fluxbox before, but never used iceWM. I just installed antiX 7.2 for use in a desktop application.
1999 IBM Thinkpad
Pentium II 400Mhz
My issues so far (maybe someone can tell me the limits of this particular OS):
-Trying to copy Open Office tarball into /opt, there's no GUI to do this point and click so using terminal.
#su root cp /media/pindrive/OOoblahblahblah /opt
#cannot execute /bin command cp
the same is happens when I use the mv command.
-Is there no GUI interface for browsing files on drives?
-Once I figure out how to install OOo will it automatically update the program lists on the start menu?
I tried to install puppy linux first, but the live cd would not run, gave me some mounting errors and something and something or other (I''ll post elsewhere for this later)
Just for your info Ragnarok, Anticaptalista is the distro creator/maintainer. If anyone can advise you he can.
I'm aware of that. The thinkpad dosent have internet, so i tried installing from the package file I downloaded from the OOo website on to a pin drive. I just need to get an ethernet card so i can update the programming libraries needed to install OOo 2.something or other. Any suggestions on the easiest card to set up (not wireless, just ethernet). And thanks anticapitalista for the reply, its not often that you hear from a developer on simple matters like this. Also, is there a script or a boot option that will boot antix directly into IceWM? Its for my mother, so any simplifications would be a plus.
