    Debian Control Center
    Submitted by LPR on Monday, December 30, 2002 – 18:22
    DebianSearching for a content management system, I found this: Debian Control Center. Maybe somebody saw this earlier. It seems a interesting idea. A possible module could be a DSA module: it downloads the RDF and shows the info. And of course, the netconfig module 😉

    Subject: Debian, the hard way?

    Hello, I had read the comments and I want to add some words:

    1. I said “interesting idea”, not “interesting program”. I like to have a Debian Control Center, modular, easy to use, etc.
    2. “Poor GUI”. I wonder if the persons who posted, saw aptitude in its earlier stages of development… and now it’s a good replacement for dselect… (sic)
    3. “Gnome-System-Tools”. No, this not the answer… at least for me. Why? Well… it’s GNOME specific and what about (KDE|WindowMaker|FluxBox|BlackBox|IceWM|wm2|xfce|oroborus|ion|<your window manager>) users? I don’t want a Control Center so specific and dependent of a desktop environment. It’s like to say “Hey people look this window manager!” and the answer is.. “Gnome exists…” (double sic…)

    The gnome system tools backend is not gnome specific. You can write a front end for any desktop environment you like, even web based, but use the gst backend.
