I am happy to announce the release of SbK Mate-Compiz 22.1.1.
The SpinsbyKilz.com watermark is not present in the installed OS.
This release series was all about new themes. This release is about 6 hours late because of the Lightdm theme. I logged out while testing and found it was ugly. I fixed the issue, created updated packages, and rebuilt the iso. The LXQt and Gnome packages are also fixed, so after an update and reboot they will look good as well.
Both iso’s in this release include:
- The 6.1.26 LTS kernel.
- Compiz 9 with the rotating cube for virtual desktops, faded windows in the background, wobbly windows, and other effects.
- The New KoraSpin-Lime2 icon theme with light and dark versions of the control icons. It is part of the KoraSpin-22.1.1 package.
- The new SpinThemeDarkLime5 matching Gtk and Kvantum themes in one package.
- The new Usplash-22.1.1 desktop wallpapers. One of them is the background for the grub, desktop, and login screen backgrounds.
- A basic Conky with matching color theme.
- The iso’s are up to date as of 5/9/2023
- An optional Firefox theme, SbK Dark Lime5 that matches the color scheme is available at https://spins.tuxfamily.org/ffthemes.html just click on the image in Firefox to install it.
Both iso’s also contain the standard SbK features.
- The latest LTS kernel.
- A Manjaro stable install that is also AUR compatible. In the full iso there are also a lot of packages used to build packages installed.
- It is multiarch by default to make running wine games and other 32bit software you may run easier.
- The Spins by Kilz signed repository is enabled for SbK project packages.
- A signed iso. For information on checking signed iso’s visit https://spins.tuxfamily.org/check.html
- Bloatware has been removed (HP printer software and others).
- Flat packs and snaps are not installed. The back ends are also not installed but can be installed by the user.
- All SbK iso’s contain Manjaro Architect script in case you want to do a custom install. To get any SbK packages like themes, icons, and other goodies you will have to add the SbK http://spins.tuxfamily.org/repo.html after install.
- Timeshift autosnap installed. It takes a snapshot before upgrading so any bad upgrades can be easily reversed.
- A basic Conky with a color scheme to match the other themes.
