Felicia XFCE CE UPDATE

Postby merlwiz79 » Fri Dec 19, 2008 12:19 am

I have an iso uploaded for exploder to test. ( 3 minor bugs from me so far )
This version was rebased on Xubuntu 8.10.
filesize:
685.4MB

custom CDrom repo.( has gnome-network-admin and network-manager-gnome 0.7svn if you need it)
Permanently Remove in thunar (skips the trash)
Remote Desktop (works just like in Gnome)
Gufw
Flegita
Giver
Mint tools and updates
Changed to black usplash
EnvyNG in menu for terminal version.
mintDisk for fat and ntfs partitions(wish I could add ext3 etc)
GPRS Easy Connect 3.0.1
Yes I still have VLC.
fusesmbtool needs to have the User Privileges Allow use of fuse filesystems like LTSP Thin Client block devices.
Chestnut-Dialer needs both User Privileges that deal with modems.
Thunar Shares for sharing folders with Samba.

Once the internal test is done Clem has to decide if he wants the Community to test it.
Then he will push it to the servers for download.
Once the servers have it then he will announce it.
He hasn't said anything yet.

I wonder when will we get the release. I'm dying to see it, literally (as I'm waiting to make a fresh install, because my system is totally damaged, and I can't do lots of things, I'm limited to websites basically).
I'm just wondering. Maybe you should keep us at least updated on the work?

I tested the release and asked Clem to check it out. I found a few very minor issues and recommended it for public testing. Clem has the final word on any release and we are awaiting his decision. Your patience will pay off, this release looks extremely good. Just hang in there, Clem has been very busy lately.

I am sure there must be less productive ways of spending your time... I just can't think of what they might be. :-)

Let's just hope that it as usual is better then the Gnome release, because that gave me loads of trouble, so I went back to XFCE 5, where everything just works! :D
I'm not totally convinced about this move to ubuntu 8.10 as base... :?
I'll wait patiently and see what wonders Merlwiz79 has accomplished!!

I see this release is going to kick ass. Good work!
I'm wondering about the performance of this release. XUbuntu 8.10 was really slow. As a matter of fact, it was so killing my PC I switched back to Mint 5 XFCE. I couldn't work at all on it. What about Mint 6 XFCE? Is it faster / slower than Mint 5 XFCE?
I've heard performance is going to be the key "feature" of Ubuntu 9.04. I'm wondering what are you going to do with Mint 7, but I'm looking very forward to it.
