Build-Change Log


Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix Build/Change log:

  • Ubuntu 12.04.1 is the initial foundation (32 & 64 bit)
  • The Ubuntu Customization Kit is the key development tool utilized
  • Unity has been removed (Gnome Fallback remains as a safety net.)
  • Latest Spin (102712) includes Cinnamon 1.6.3 (two-panel {classic} configuration.)
  • Weather applet has been preinstalled (Indicating Fahrenheit Temperature in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.)
  • Applet Clock displays 12 hour time.
  • 32-bit spin incorporates non-pae kernel (for maximum compatibility for non-pae capable processors.)
  • Gimp is preinstalled
  • aptitude and synaptic are both preinstalled
  • preload is preinstalled (for faster launching of frequently used applications.)
  • xscreensaver package is preinstalled (accordingly gnome-screensaver was deleted), but xscreensaver-gl was omitted (for greater compatibility with older graphics hardware.)
  • LightDM is the display manager but with gtk-greeter instead of unity greeter.
  • The intent was to delete the overlay scrollbars but they have been observed to still be appearing sometimes (packages will be removed to resolve this at next update.)
  • The "hot corner" has been disabled at of the latest (102712) spin (the "hot corner" confuses new users while multiple desktops are still available to power users through keyboard combinations or by re-enabled the "hot corner" via gsettings.)
  • medibuntu is added and enabled
  • Via the "saner-restricted-extras" meta-package, the following "extras" are included (and preinstalled): gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse, gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly, flashplugin-installer, unrar, x-ttcidfont-conf, ttf-mscorefonts-installer, openjdk-6-jre, icedtea6-plugin, vlc-plugin-pulse, vlc, mozilla-plugin-vlc, w64codecs (w32codecs for 32-bit), libdvdread4, and a post-install command of /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/ (which was intended to enable dvd playback via libdvdcss2 but did not -- a "sudo aptitude install libdvdcss2" is required later to enable.)
  • Firefox 16.0.2 is installed on latest spin (102712)
  • Linux Kernel is updated to 3.2.0-32-generic
