QuoteFuture direction of SparkyNEWS7 APR, 20181It took really long, but finelly I made my mind about the future of Sparky.Don't think it showed up suddenly, yesterday or so, not really.To make this decision, I spoke with our community members via community sites, forums, made a few polls, and individual talks as well. I made many, many tests, chacking different configurations and settings many times too. So nothing happend just like that, couse I woke up today morning having a new idea. Not really...The fact is, I spend much time building and testing Sparky iso images, but the number of iso is too big and doesn't let me focus on all of them as I want.At the other hand, the work around Sparky takes much, and much time every next week and every next month. Much time I also spend building/rebuilding new versions of offered via repository packages and creating new ones or implementing new features.The idea of creating Sparky was quite simple: it has to be lightweight, fast, powerfull and fully customizable. It means no heavy desktops, no fireworks, no useless things.To do so, I have to cut the iso number down and focus on a one, main point of Sparky view/core. The point was and still is Openbox.So, to conclude and make it clean and straight:1. From now, only one main, Openbox based desktop: LXQt (rolling) or LXDE (stable)2. MinimalGUI (Openbox)/MinimalCLI (text based) lets you install your favorite desktop with a small set of apps, as before.3. Special Editions with no changes (so far) with Openbox, as before.It lets me to find a little much time to make and focus on new Sparky releases better than before.So, to conclude and make it clean and straight:1.

QuoteYes I do my friend! At the beginning we want linux and we want it all right?! than you haven't read what the installer states before starting, and your problem was surely the same home directory for all of them, and that do not work well. Try creating a new user and setup his default session, but I strongly recommend you uninstall everything else to "clean the mess"
