@ dancytron and backi
Thanks for testing !

@All, for info: To be honest I think it was a little bit too early sharing BionicDog ISO's.
I assumed there wouldn't be any major changes by Ubuntu, but there were recently (e.g. kernel package names changed, see also EDIT at Changes and Fixes Info )
So probably in a month (or two) I'll update the ISO's to more stable.

@ wiak
Thanks for the new weX. I've added it to the custom repositories (Xenial, Stretch, Bionic)
I've changed the control file by adding dependencies: ffmpeg, scrox and re-packaged.
I thought that would be OK for you, just tell me if not.

Fred

Hi Andres,

Thanks! Well, Ubuntu dropped support for the 32-bit Desktop edition (only 64-bit)
http://releases.ubuntu.com/18.04/
But there's still package repository for 32-bit, so you can build your own.

I don't have a script, but just installed debootstrap package from Ubuntu (with bionic support):
http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/d/debootstrap/debootstrap_1.0.95_all.deb
And then to set up the base system:
Code:
mkdir -p bionic/chroot && cd bionic &&
debootstrap --arch=i386 --variant=minbase bionic chroot http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/


And I guess you know about what should follow, e.g. mound bind dev, proc sys etc... and chroot into bionic/chroot.

Yes the linux-image i386 I installed with apt-get in bionic chroot.
(but Note: just recently they changed extra kernel packages to linux-modules-extra (can't remember now the exact name))

EDIT: For info: I noticed that "live-boot" can be used on Ubuntu now (same as Debian), therefore install the live-boot package (previously was only "casper")

Fred

I propose using tint2's executor capabilities as volume icon. One can set it up via tint's gui settings.
Command is (best symbol I could find without emojis)
Code:
echo -n '♪ ' && amixer get Master | awk -F"[][]" '/dB/ { print $2 }'

You can also use scripts in the command field. Couldn't really find any of those) Not that simple at least - only some extra fancy stuff. Executor probably can be used for more than volume control.
Hover mouse over it and scroll up - volume up, scroll down - volume down. Middle click - mute toggle. Left click - alsamixer.
Downside - no indication of muting. Looks like script is needed for that functionality

That works nicely, thanks!
For who wants to try easy, here's attached, modified with volume icon "tint2rc_crunchbang.gz" (remove fake .gz).
Replace in ~/.config/tint2/ (better backup first "tint2rc_crunchbang")
Then restart tint2, from terminal:
Code:
tint2restart

For who is interested, here's a fork of BionicDog: "MBPUP" by mbinnun:
https://github.com/mbinnun/MBPUP#mbpup-linux---remasterable-live-linux-desktop---a-fork-of-bionic-dog-ubuntu-1804
(mbinnun informed me kindly about it through e-mail)
It includes a full LXDE Desktop (like Lubuntu) and more applications, so resulting in a larger ISO size.

Fred

Thanks Fred! Tested StretchDog and BionicDog with satisfaction for all my basic needs. I was not able to set levels of the audio mixer in Bionic via alsamixer: how to set mic source? I installed retrovol to do this and it somehow worked.

Hello watchdog, thanks for the feedback !
Good you solved by installing retrovol, anyway, how to do with alsamixer:
- Press F4 for "Capture"
- Select "Mic" with arrow buttons (< >)
- Enable by pressing SPACE key
See pic below.

Downloaded BionicDog and made a manual frugal install. Booted fine and played a while with it.

- won't recognize my usb gprs modem (appears as sr1 in file manager)
- after saving and doing a reboot, the sound was gone
- couldn't find a program to setup sound card (choose sound card in alsa mixer didn't change anything)

I don't have knowledge about that, hopefully someone else can answer maybe ?

That's strange that the sound was gone, there's program from rcrsn51 in repo: sound-card-selector, it might help solving the problem (run after install from Menu > System)
Install with Synaptic or from terminal using apt-get:
Code:
apt-get update # might be required
apt-get install sound-card-selector
