SbK Pantheon 23.0.0

I am happy to announce the release of SbK Pantheon 23.0.0.

The watermark is not present on the installed system.

The install media runs slow on older hardware. But will speed up quite a bit once installed.

Both iso’s in this release include:

  1. The 6.1.31 LTS kernel.
  2. The New KoraSpin-Blue7icon theme with light and dark versions.
  3. The new SpinThemeDarkBlue11, matching Gtk and Kvantum themes in one package.
  4. The new Usplash-23.0.0 desktop wallpapers. One of them is the background for the grub, desktop, and login screen backgrounds.
  5. Minimize control for windows.
  6. Avilable updates are shown in Conky.
  7. The iso’s are up to date as of 5/10/2023.
  8. An optional Firefox theme, SbK Dark Blue11, that matches the color scheme is available at 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
  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 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.


Cinnamon will be next, and will likely be released on Monday. Its looking fantastic and I am putting in a little extra polish for the desktop.
