SbK Cinnamon 21.3.7 release

I am happy to announce the release of SbK Cinnamon 21.3.7.

The watermark is not in the installed OS.

Cinnamon also has a minimal iso with a panel instead of a dock.

This release series was supposed to be 21.3.6 but an update happened during the release cycle with only LXQt released. So Lxqt was updated to 21.3.7 by rebuilding the iso’s. The rest of the iso’s will be built as 21.3.7. The theme package names may say 21.3.6 but they are for this release cycle as recreating them just for a name change isnt worth it.

This is the first series that uses the KoraSpin icons. They are forked from the Kora Icon set.

All iso’s in this release include:

  1. The 5.15.60 LTS kernel.
  2. The New KoraSpin-Orange4 icon theme with light and dark versions of the control icons. It is part of the KoraSpin-21.3.6 package
  3. The new SpinThemeDarkOrange4 matching Gtk and Kvantum themes in one package.
  4. The new Usplash-21.3.6 desktop wallpapers. One of them is the background for the grub, desktop, and login screen backgrounds.
  5. The Peach2 Cinnamon theme in the panel iso is new.
  6. The iso’s are up to date as of 8/18/2022.
  7. An optional Firefox theme, SbK Dark Orange4, that matches the color scheme is available at Browser Themes just click on the image in Firefox to install it.

All iso’s also contain the standard SbK features.

  1. The latest LTS kernel.
  2. A Manjaro stable install that is also AUR compatible with a lot of packages used to build packages installed…
  3. It is multiarch by default to make running wine games and other 32bit software you may run easier.
  4. The Spins by Kilz signed repository is enabled for SbK project packages.
  5. A signed iso. For information on checking signed iso’s visit Checking
  6. Bloatware has been removed (HP printer software and others).
  7. Flat packs and snaps are not installed. The back ends are also not installed but can be installed by the user.
  8. All SbK iso’s contain Manjaro Architect script in case you want to do a custom install. Sadly to get any SbK packages like themes, icons, and other goodies you will have to add the SbK Repository after install.
  9. Timeshift autosnap installed. It takes a snapshot before upgrading so any bad upgrades can be easily reversed.
  10. A basic Conly with matching color theme.

A full and very minimal iso’s can be found here.

As always comments, suggestions and questions are welcome.

Due to an unknown bug I was made aware of, I have rebuilt the iso’s for the Cinnamon spins and uploaded them. The download link above will bring you to them.
