The X Window System page was revamped: http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:x-desktop. New section Unofficial Window Managers and Desktop Environments for anyone who wants to post their installation findings and/or link a screenshot. Without much effort DWM, i3 and FVWM worked fine on dCore-wily :)

Several wiki sections updated and expanded. To track select left-lower Recent Changes link. Please notify regarding errors, omissions, deadlinks, new ideas. Most recent work has been on dCore SCE Overview, dCore X Window System and dCore Screenshots. Thanks Onyarian for your wiki contribution :)

Highlights:
* Panels and Launchers sections added to dCore Desktop Applications.
* flash10.sce creation script added to Unofficial dCore Scripts.
* dmenu blurb added to dCore X Window System, easy access System Tools/OnDemand on unsupported WM/DE.
* Screenshots for all supported WM/DE uploaded.
* Screenshots for several unsupported WM/DE uploaded.
* No takers for Gnome and it has no official README so moved to unofficial for now. IIRC Jason indicated it works in wheezy, maybe jessie, probably not ubuntus, so it's days on a *Core system maybe numbered without a lot of maintenance.
* Created seperate unofficial WM and DE lists.
* Have yet to find a tiling WM that doesn't work, added dwm and i3 to unofficial WM, including boot code and instructions.
* Added FVWM and Window Maker to unoffical WM, including boot codes and instructions.
* Added FVWM-Crystal and MATE to unofficial DE, including boot codes and instructions. MATE-core on dCore is sweet even with 384 MB RAM. If anyone wants to run *Core with a DE, dCore Xfce and dCore MATE are slick. May submit formal README to move MATE to official.

Any and all contributions welcome, areas severely lacking:
* dCore System Software > printing
* dCore System Software > scanning
* dCore Server Applications > create new networking section (eg samba, nfs, ssh)

Thanks.

No problem, slowly keeping at it.

Two printers and a PSU recently died, printer only 17 years old. No printer or scanner stuff will be added in immediate future unless someone can upload or provide Jason with README. Soldering capacitors in PSU is pretty easy, just be careful.

dCore Server Applications section:
  Renamed to dCore Server and Networking
  NTFS section added

Thanks for the feedback jls. Likely 'low RAM' system is relative, to me it's < 512 MB to someone else maybe <4 GB. So a 4 GB system may not notice the difference, my system does. To confirm performed large import and monitored Conky, not performing any other tasks, did not use RAM option, sceconfig RAM=FALSE.

Shortly after boot ran sudo cache-clear, using ~30% RAM, imported libreoffice-gnome (298 total packages). RAM use steadily crept upwards, reached >90% RAM before merging the first 100 packages, started swapping just over 100 packages, upon completion of import 14 MB swap used.

Thanks for the sce2gz reminder, will try to take a look at it someday soon.

Thanks  sm8ps for your recent forum contribution, come back when time permits :)

Several items added to dCore Desktop Applications last couple months, most recent Perl Audio Converter. The Music and Media Players section was revised to simply Multimedia to capture this additional software: http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:desktop_applications. Please add more items, especially those requiring configuration or tweaking to get running, thanks.

The dCore SCE Overview section was recently overhauled and expanded:

SoX added to desktop applications: http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:desktop_applications#sox

Command --help for following slightly revised, now updated in wiki:
  sce-import
  sce-remove
  sce-update

Old sce2gz replaced by sce-sce2gz now has --help, Jason added to sce-searchprebuilt, and it is now added to wiki:
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:extensions?&#dcore_sce_management_commands

As mentioned in another thread, Java, Flash and Chrome installer scripts don't matter much to me in regards to naming as they are 3rd party. For consistency though most SCE management commands are now sce-*, possible last exception ppa-add. Should ppa-add be renamed sce-ppa-add ?

Hi jls.

Terminology added to dCore Desktop Applications -> Terminal Emulators: http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:desktop_applications#terminal_emulators

The EFM entry indicates it's part of the Enlightenment Window Manager, so not to be misleading. The Enlightenment Window Manager is also documented in the wiki as being an officially supported Window Manager. To me it's a unique file manager, part of an officially supported WM, available to dCore users and should be listed. As a forum member you are welcome to delete the entry if you wish but i don't understand why?

Official WM and DE:
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:x-desktop#dcore_window_managers_and_desktop_environments

EFM:

Just wanted to say how great it is to see that the wiki is constantly evolving. After a good while of absence it serves as a highly valuable source of information.
Thanks to everybody, especially nitram! Let's keep it up everybody!

Cheers!

Hi sm8ps, thanks for the encouragement, come visit more often.

Recent wiki updates:

dCore Desktop Applications
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:desktop_applications
-added Audacity audio editor and runtime note
-removed Iceweasel (deprecated)
-updated Midori, added README link
-updated emelFM and emelFM2
-updated Enlightenment File Manager (thanks jls_legalize)
-updated Terminology and link (thanks jls_legalize)
-created Games section, added Ace of Penguins, FLTK Games, Rogue
-created Compile Tools section, added build-essential

dCore X Window System
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:x-desktop
-updated Enlightenment link (thanks jls_legalize)

Audacity was a pleasant surprise, minimal configuration change required to get it running nice. If anyone wants to help, there are unfinished items earlier in this thread that could use attention. For example, installing a scanner and printer notes. Also, if anyone has experience running Wine, PlayOnLinux or setting up more modern games let me know. Thanks.

[edit]: Actually there are lots of things that need doing. To take some of the workload off Jason i was thinking of keeping a running To do list somewhere in the wiki or maybe append on this thread. That way any dCore users wanting to contribute can tackle a project, update wiki or PM me some notes, send some code to Jason, etc. Another item not mentioned above is getting the dCore installer running properly (dCore-install), there was an earlier thread on this somewhere.
