Bodhi 5.1 rc AppPack release now available


The App Pack rc ISO is available for testing purposes.

The App Pack rc ISO contains some software changes compared to the 5.0 release. As do the other rc releases this ISO features Štefan “the waiter” Uram's new work on the MokshaArcGreen theme and naturally that theme will be the theme used by default. This theme includes both a gtk theme and matching icons, this ISO will also include the old default BL 5.0 theme and Icons (faenza). It also features Štefan's Sticky note and Compton Moksha modules.

In addition to the new theme, I have updated the Update manager to mintupdate which now includes a kernel manager and installs Timeshift, a System restore tool, by default.

The software changes reflect my desire for a more complete desktop environment as well as better software stability and functionality. Naturally it may also reflect my own preferences.

As no selection of software is going to please all users, each of these packages can be removed without the fear of autoremove removing the whole AppPack selection. But of course the selection of the kernel and EFL, both of which can naturally be updated.

Software Included:

  • Linux kernel version 4.15.0-88

Great! Thanks.

One request: in the announcement, you refer to Timeshift as "Timeshift System backup". I think it's probably better to change that into "Timeshift System restore", in order to prevent misunderstandings about how to use Timeshift:

For the record, that's also how its creator (Tony George) refers to it:
