SbK Mate-Compiz 21.0.5

I am pleased to announce the release of SbK Mate-Compiz 21.0.5. This one may be the best of the series to date.

Both full and minimal versions of this release include

  1. The latest LTS kernel, 5.10.41.
  2. A new KvSpinDarkAqua3 dual Kvantum and GTK theme.
  3. Themeing for Grub, login screen and desktop all have the same background and colors.
  4. 4 new backgrounds, one of which is the Desktop, grub, and login screen background.
  5. A basic Conky setup to display system information on the desktop.
  6. There have been a ton of package updates since the 20.1.1 release. The release is up to date as of 6/13/21.
  7. The new MintSpin-Y-Aqua icon set.

They also contain the standard SbK features.

  1. A Manjaro stable install that is also AUR compatible.
  2. Multiarch by default to make running wine games and other 32bit software you may run easier.
  3. The Spins by Kilz signed repository is enabled for SbK project packages.
  4. Timeshift autosnap installed. It takes a snapshot before upgrading so any bad upgrades can be easily reversed.
  5. Bloatware has been removed (HP printer software and others).
  6. Flat packs and snaps are not installed. The back ends are also not installed but can be installed by the user.
  7. 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. repository

A full and minimal iso can be found here.
