The DropBox files are now current. I tested them, but don't trust me! :lipsrsealed:

Thanks, Mark.
Internet down --using cell phone hotspot.

I'm finding the script to be of great service in creating my ideal of a smaller install for 32 bit.
I also apply a modified version to my installed 64 bit to reduce the size of the snapshot
--I can keep all my additions while building a smaller ISO for system backup.

Appreciate your efforts for the benefit of all of us.

@Richard, it is my pleasure. Although I have to say, I think I should be done guessing when we can call this a 'release'. 9_9

gtkorphan would probably detect many of these.
They probably got marked "manually installed" during the initial build process (and don't show up in --autoremove list).

Thanks for that skidoo. gtkorphan is a useful little tool I was unaware of. I'd been using status in Synaptic.

Here's my final, I hope, modification of your script to reduce the size and configure my installs.
Perhaps it is just a base install for my use; although, others might find it helpful.

[NOTE:. Slight change in Plymouth procedure, to correct a slight error message at boot.
Added:. details ]

Code: Select all

#   /home/richard/.conky has only the following:
#      /MX-antiX/   conky-startup.sh   list
#      README.txt   .themepacks 

# Plymouth:

#  Accept install Plymouth if not installed.
#  Confirm: /etc/plymouth/plymouthd.conf
#                             is set to "text"

#   /usr/share/plymouth/themes/  EXCEPT 
#                  details  &  text (3 little buttons)

# REBOOT to test.

I ran it on both 32 & 64 bit installs without exploding.
Everything seems fine.
Snapshot on 32 bit down to 1.18 GB from 1.4 GB.
Will see how the 64 bit does. (MX-18 now creates a snapshot in about 20 minutes.)

great. Have seen the picture at archive.org

Seems you have used default design with papirus icons. Thunar icon in the tray looks like papirus and default conky is there. Nice work. It's the unique MX artwork. :-)
for those with an eye for the finer details...

Actually the icons used are Adwaita.... I guess I need to change the photo.

Edit: The archive.org site is down right now; I'll upload the updated image as soon as I am able.
