ExTiX 13 with Gnome 3.10 (latest version) and kernel 3.12.0-0-exton

Posted 10-31-2013 at 11:12 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

ExTiX 13 64 bit version 131031 is based on Ubuntu 13.10 released on October 17, 2013. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed Gnome 3.10 and Gnome Classic 3.10 (a perfect replacement for Cinnamon). The system language is English.

This may be possible using a single command but a very small and simple script though.Here we are deleting last 3 lines from a file.

i=$(($i + 1))
done

A new version of DebEX Barebone 64bit based on Debian Jessie/Sid is ready!

Posted 10-24-2013 at 03:57 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS 131024
