SbK Lxqt 21.1.3 release

I am happy to announce the release of SbK Lxqt 21.1.3.

I liked the theming done on SbK Lxqt 21.1.2, but it wasnt my best work. Then a big update came that moved the Manjaro release version to 21.1.3 two days after SbK Lxqt 21.1.2 was released. So I redid the themeing and moved SbK Lxqt to 21.1.3.

Both iso’s in this release include:

  1. The 5.10.63 LTS kernel.
  2. The New FlatRemixSpin-Teal2 icon theme with light and dark versions of the control icons.
  3. The new KvSpinDarkTeal3 matching Gtk and Kvantum themes in one package.
  4. The new Usplash-21.1.3 desktop wallpapers. One of them is the background for the grub, desktop, and login screen backgrounds.
  5. The iso’s are up to date as of 9/19/2021.

Both 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 click here.
  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.

A full and very minimal iso can be found here.
