Visit http://uberstudent.com for more information. A Wikipedia article about UberStudent is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UberStudent and is very informative. CONTACT Stephen Ewen, M.Ed. ewens@uberstudent.com RELEASES * 19 December 2012 - 32-bit MATE-Only Edition - uberstudent-2.0.4.2-mate-desktop-i386.iso * 13 December 2012 - 32-bit XFCE-Only Edition - uberstudent-2.0.4.2-xfce-desktop-i386.iso * 1 December 2012 - 64-bit XFCE-Only Edition - uberstudent-2.0.4.1-xfce-desktop-amd64.iso * 3 December 2012 - 64-bit MATE-Only Edition - uberstudent-2.0.4.1-mate-desktop-amd64.iso * 26 November 2012 - 64-bit Dual Boot Edition - uberstudent-2.0.4.1-desktop-amd64.iso LICENSE (c) Copyright 2012 by UberStudent EdTech (uberstudent.com) and Stephen Ewen (stephen.ewen@gmail.com) Most of UberStudent is released under the GNU Free Documentation License, which can be read at http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html.

All licenses are available to read within UberStudent. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS * 32-bit or 64-bit PC or Intel-based Mac with at least 1 GB of memory. * DVD drive for installation or a USB port with a 4 GB drive into which the uberStudent ISO has been placed with a program such as UNetBootIn. DOWNLOAD If downloading the ISO file it is recommended that you use a download manager that supports resume. The Firefox extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/downthemall/ works across platforms, is free, and is a good option. Inexpensive disks are available for purchase at http://uberstudent.com/get-uberstudent for those who wish to avoid downloading UberStudent ISO files. BURNING THE ISO In general, use any disc burning utility to burn the UberStudent ISO *as an image* (not *as data*). Windows 7 users can simply right-click over the ISO image and select "Burn disc image." For earlier versions of Windows you can follow these directions: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ht/burnisofile.htm Mac OS X users can follow these directions: http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20060619181010389 RUNNING THE LIVE DISC Place the UberStudent disc into your computer's DVD drive, reboot, and follow the prompts. Most computers are set to first check the disc drive for a bootable medium, such as is UberStudent. If yours is not you will need to hit (usually) F11 as your computer initially boots and select your disc drive to boot from. Important! Important! Important! Important! Important! Important! Important! First Boot (Live Disc) Login Info: USERNAME: uberstudent PASSWORD: Leave blank and press Enter on your keyboard The above info will display on the grub (boot) menu when running UberStudent 2.0.4.1 from the Live Disk. You cannot but see it in LARGE text there. If booting from any method that bypasses the normal grub boot menu, you won't see the FIRST BOOT LOGIN info but you'll still need to input it when you reach the login menu; so please take note of the info. INSTALLATION You cannot at this time install UberStudent directly from the disc. Instead, boot in to the Live Disc and click the icon on the desktop for installing UberStudent; then, follow the same procedures for installing Ubuntu 12.04. The guide at http://news.softpedia.com/news/Installing-Ubuntu-12-04-LTS-266201.shtml is a good one, among others. SYSTEM * Ubuntu 12.04 LTS base * Linux 3.5 Kernel * XFCE 4.10 * MATE V1.2 The XFCE-only and MATE-only versions obviously contain only their repsective desktop environments, not both. KNOWN ISSUES - Specific Programs ~ Zotero - Upstream Issue ~ In 64-bit versions, when using Zotero inside Firefox you must install Adobe Reader to view PDF files from bibilographic entries in Zotero that have attached PDF files. Adobe Reader was too large to include as default in UberStudent. Standalone Zotero used with Google Chrome does not require Adobe Reader. ~ VirtualBox - Local Issue ~ 32-bit versions come with Virtualbox pre-installed. In 64-bit versions, VirtualBox in the repository in UberStudent will not compile with the Linux 3.5 kernel in UberStudent, so don't install it. Use the link in UberStudent's Accessories Menu to install it. If you mistakenly install the version in the repository before noticing the menu entry, go to Applications > System > Synaptic Package Manager and find the version of VirtualBox you installed and right-click over it and select "Completely Remove." Then, reinstall Virtual Box from the UbeStudent menu entry. ~ Guake - Upstream Issue ~ The usual F12 keyboard shortcut to call Guake will not work due to an apparent bug in XFCE. Guake is set to be called by F1 instead. ~ Thunderbird - Minor Annoyance ~ In 64-bit Versions, Thunderbird will try to use its own internal function to update itself. You should disable it, since it will be updated by the package manager and updating by the internal function will fail anyway. To disable, in Thunderbird go to Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Update tab. Then untick the box for Thunderbird to check for updates to itself. KNOWN ISSUES - 64-bit Dual Boot Edition Containing Both XFCE and MATE Desktop Environments ~ Dual-Boot 64-bit Version - Installing Additional Desktop Environments ~ The UberStudent 2.0.4.1 Dual-Boot Edition is uberstudent-2.0.4.1-desktop-amd64.iso. It features both the XFCE and MATE desktop environments, which do not normally play very well together on the same system. Startup scripts by UberStudent that run respectively at XFCE and MATE boot enforce boundaries between the two, particularly the file managers. If you install any additional desktop environment(s) in UberStudent 2.0.4.1, you will break the boundaries bewtween XFCE and MATE, and thus your system. JUST DON'T DO IT. If you want a version of UberStudent 2.0.4.1 with a different desktop environment, ask UberStudent to build it. KNOWN ISSUES - 64-bit Versions - XFCE Desktop Environment, Dual Boot and XFCE-Only Edition ~ All Versions - XFCE4 Windows Manager - Upstream Issue ~ Very rarely, if you exit XFCE without first exiting all programs AND choose "Last Session" when booting into XFCE the next time, the XFCE4 Windows Manager, xfwm4, *may* fail to load on startup. You'll know this happened because the window frames on your programs will have dissapeared. The workaround is to press F1 on your keyboard to call the Guake terminal and type in the following and hit Enter on your keyboard: xfwm4 It should be fixed for not only that session but those that follow, unless you make the same error again. In that case, follow this same workaround. KNOWN ISSUES - MATE Desktop Environment, Dual Boot and MATE-Only Edition ~ All Versions - MATE Help - Upstream Issue ~ Clicking Help in a MATE-specific configuration program displays no MATE help. This is a known gap in upstream MATE and the best solution is to fix it there. You can assist the MATE devlopers by helping them to "port" GNOME 2 Help files into MATE Help files. Visit http://mate-desktop.org to get involved. Visit http://uberstudent.com for actual help, in the meantime. ~ 32-bit MATE version - Upstream Issue ~ During installation, Caja may open the ISO location. This is harmless. ~ All MATE Versions and Dual Boot Version - Caja in A+Desaturate (Default) and A+GreenTea Themes - Minor Annoyance ~ A certain gtkrc widget controlling Caja renders wrongly, so there is a small quirk in the default and GreenTea themes. Red text appears on hover in the Icon View button. Some people will actually like that, but it's not by design.

CHANGES in 2.0.4.1 from 2.0.4 1. Fixed repository issue concerning xorg that caused Wine and a few other programs to fail.
