I'm making an Ubuntu image dedicated to playing Touhou.


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Okay so long story short, I got trolled by a video on YouTube saying that "TouhouBuntu" was a thing. It was a lie, so now I'm making it real.

To be clear, I know very little about programming and I only know C64 BASIC and Batch, so I'm using a program called Cubic to do the programming for me.

This project is not an OS made from the ground up, but rather a customized Ubuntu installer that I plan to have 2 main features: It comes with Touhou 6 (probably the demo for legal reasons) and the starting web page is Moriya Shrine. Oh, and the wallpaper is Touhou related as well. (Just something I found on Wallpaperflare, credit to the original artist.)

The first hurdle I'm facing is how I can get Firefox to default to Moriya Shrine before I install it.
Maybe I can copy-paste a script and put it on the Desktop?

And the second hurdle I'm facing is how I can customize the installer itself. Is there like a file I can access from within Cubic or something?
Or maybe I can get someone to make an installer and I can write the text on the setup page.

I'm going to start testing now, except for the whole installing thing. I can't afford to wipe my OS right now (at least, I think so.)

I'll post a link when available.

Here is the first release of TouhouBuntu 1.0: Sakuya!

It should have some stuff on the desktop, a wallpaper or two, and even a Terminal assistant!

If anyone wants to lend a hand to development, just message me.
Now excuse me while I recover my files. This is why we use virtual machines, so we don't lose stuff.

I like this idea lol

Gonna try something similar with arch, but in addition with configured for touhou wine.

Also I will be using just a window manager (didn't decide which one yet), without desktop environment, so I can make it maximally touhou themed with things like polybar.

Would also try making the entire system controllable with a gamepad, but idk how yet.

And for browser: I don't suggest you changing the default home page, most Linux users don't like it, customize and make it touhou-themed instead.

One thing I'm trying to figure out is how I can have the installer put folders onto the Desktop. I know nothing about making an installer, so maybe there's a tool out there that will help with that.

This isn't going to be under active development, it's just a hobby I'm doing. Hopefully this will help me learn more about Linux as I go on.

(Also, I might have to ask someone else to customize the installer, because there's no way I can do this myself.)

I just had an idea.

What if TouhouBuntu had Sakuya as a desktop assistant, like Microsoft Clippy, or Bonzi- actually no, not Bonzi Buddy.

Anyway, what if the installer asked if the user was male or female, which would effect whether Sakuya called you Master or Mistress? I have no idea how to do that, so if anyone is smart enough to do something like that, let me know. (You don't have to. I'm not your mom.)

So Instead of a Desktop assistant, I made a Terminal assistant. What's supposed to happen is that you are given 4 choices. Three of them open an app, the other exits the shell.

None of them work, and I get an infinite loop of Sakuya telling me she can't do anything.

Here it is if anyone wants to take a look.

I finished the new ISO, and it should have a custom wallpaper, and stuff on the desktop. Including that Terminal assistant that I fixed. I'll update the original post once the image is finished uploading.

I'm thinking about making a new release of this image soon, with the proper packages required to run .exe files. Maybe a new wallpaper as well.

Anything else I should add or change? Keep in mind, I'm using Cubic, so there's only so much I can do.
