SbK Pantheon 22.0.1 release

I am happy to announce the release of SbK Pantheon 22.0.1.

The watermark is not present on the installed system.

Both iso’s in this release include:

  1. The 5.15.89 LTS kernel.
  2. The New KoraSpin-Peach3 icon theme with light and dark versions.
  3. The new SpinThemeDarkPeach4 matching Gtk and Kvantum themes in one package.
  4. The new Usplash-22.0.1 desktop wallpapers. One of them is the background for the grub, desktop, and login screen backgrounds.
  5. Minimize control for windows was added.
  6. Avilable updates are shown in Conky.
  7. The iso’s are up to date as of 1/29/2022.
  8. An optional Firefox theme, SbK Dark Peach4, that matches the color scheme is available at Browser Themes just click on the image in Firefox to install it.

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 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. 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.

As always comments, suggestions, requests are always welcome, just post below.


Hi Jim.B,
thanks for a lot of your work on ISO with Pantheon.
I have been working with Manjaro for years now. Then decided to go back to my roots and tried MX Linux and Peppermint. All with XFCE of course.
I like it simple and clean, which is the case with all three above.
But then I got bored, installed Elementary OS and managed to delete the entire disk thanks to the installer… …and my own nonsense, of course :-).
Has the search begun - Fedora? Thanks but no. SUSE? Gosh, I tried it once too… …and then I found your ISO!
Thanks a thousand times!
As a snoop, I have a lot of questions.
Mainly for system wide setting of theme, icons and cursor.
In the system settings under sudo, I managed to change the theme (I use the dark mint scheme), so I no longer get a white gparted or file manager. But it was not possible to change the icons and the cursor - they are set hard.
I also want to make changes in the wingpanel - add weather indicator, app and tray icons… I also want to overwrite Applications on the left to Manjaro.
What version of Pantheon is used in the ISO? Everything is described on github, but I need to know the version so that I don’t completely destroy wingpanel with modifications.
Thanks again for the job done. The system runs like clockwork and Pantheon is a beautiful DM.

Hello again
I set everything up as best I could.
In order to use the power of the Nvidia GPU, I have to turn on “enable windows compositor”.
But that option is simply not in the system (I also tried the gnome tweak tool).
Everything is described here:
The procedure also worked in elementary OS and before that in Manjaro with Xfce (where it was a matter of two clicks, of course).
Can you advise?
Thanks in advance.

Im looking into it, but my understanding is that the Gala WM has composting enabled by default unlike other window managers where you need to turn it on. Kind of like Gnome. Do you get a blank window when running glxgears in a terminal?

Of course I tried GLXGEARS. The result is approx. 60fps, while in Debian distros with XFCE, or directly eOS it is approx. 800fps with the Nouveau driver…
I can’t find the reason. I’d love to run it in your spin.
Thanks for the quick response. I had a lot of work and I found the answer only now…
