Minimoko

... is a playground for me. I wanted to test some things: without reinventing the wheel again and again, using existing resources like windowmanager (openbox) and desktop-iconsoftware (idesk). ~

My hope was to fasten and simplify handling.

I used shr unstable with all updates until 2009-10-15 and made some changes on it.

  • windowmanager: openbox
  • desktop-software(icons): idesk
  • keyboard: literki
