LESS ARCOLINUXB ISO’S
We will be building less and lessArcoLinuxB iso’s in the future.
It takes a lot of energy for the ArcoLinux team and all betatesters to test all the iso’s.
There are ArcoLinux and ArcoLinuxD – 2
There are ArcoLinuxB Full iso’s – 13
There are ArcoLinuxB Minimal iso’s – 13
That brings us to a total of 28 iso’s to test EVERY MONTH.
That is a huge drain of energy and time for all concerned.
That is why you will see that we will have partial builds or no ArcoLinuxB builds at all.
The idea of the BYOI project is NOT to download it but to BUILD it yourself.
If building is not your thing, you can always download an older full or minimal iso and start updating. We do want to keep rolling anyway and you know we have scripts to do that.
Thank you betatesters for giving us your time, energy and hardware to test all these iso’s.
SARDI AND SURFN MAJOR RELEASE
REDSHIFT IS OUT
Redshift was included in the last iso. During testing redshift gave no issues. After the launch some of our users reported it was NOT working. Since reports were partially negative, we have decided not to include it on the iso. You can install in later, if you want to have it.
Software that gives our users frustrations is out as a rule of thumb.
SUPER + Q
From the development of Qtile we have learned to use the keyboard shortcut super + q to close a window.
We were so used to this shortcut that we have implemented it also in :
xfce, openbox, i3, awesome, bspwm, qtile, xmonad.
OBLOGOUT HAS A NEW THEME
From Zver43 on discord we got a great theme that we immediately liked so… it has been added to the collection i.e. solarized-squares64
Add this line to your current /etc/oblogout.conf to try it out
