Updated 11-20-2014 at 05:35 AM by exton

Yet another version of LFA (Linux for All) is out. This time based on Ubuntu 14.10, codenamed Utopic Unicorn, released October 23, 2014. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). I have added LXDE, Razor-qt and XBMC (An award-winning free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media) as alternatives, so that everyone on the spot (during live operation) can compare the different four Desktop Environments. The system language is ENGLISH...

DebEX Barebone build 140819

Posted 08-19-2014 at 01:14 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

The DebEX Barebone ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred to a USB pen drive. You can then even run DebEX Barebone from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! Read this INSTRUCTION. NetworkManager has been removed. It doesn’t go together with Wicd when it comes to configuring wireless networks. I’ve added the applications GParted (partition editor), AbiWord, Icedove (Thunderbird) and AlsaPlayer. Study the...

Build 140411 of SlackEX 14.1 with kernel 3.14

Posted 04-11-2014 at 02:39 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Why replace version 140326 with version 140411?
To my horror I discovered that some programs (including K3b and MPlayer) could not be started due to various unfulfilled program dependencies. The problems are now fixed in version 140411. Additionally could version 4.8.6 of Gimp not open jpg files. To deal with the problem, I had to install version 4.8.10 (latest stable version) of Gimp from source.
