Bluestar Linux – 3.13.6 – Desktop – Release

bslx-logo-main4

 

The new Bluestar Desktop Edition has been released and is available for download from the Bluestar Linux downloads area. Both the generic and gma3600 versions are available.

 

The following is a list of highlighted updates for the Desktop release:

  • linux-3.13.6
  • latest kde-4.12.3
  • latest firefox-27.0.1 ; chromium-33 ; thunderbird-24.3.0.1
  • latest flashplugin-11.2.202.341 ; bluez-5.15
  • latest libreoffice-4.1.5 ; ubuntuone-13.10
  • latest mariadb-5.5.36 ; vlc-2.1.4 ; gimp-2.8.10
  • latest mesa-10.1.0 ; python-3.3.4 ; smbclient-4.1.5
  • latest gparted-0.18.0 ; gtk3-3.10.7 ; libldap-2.4.39
  • latest grub-1:2.02.beta2 ; systemd-210-3
  • latest procps-ng-3.3.9-2 (replaces sysvinit)
  • many more updates to latest versions – see links below for details
  • all software up to date [ generic - 03/08 ; gma3600 - 03/10 ]

Complete new package listings have been made available for the i686, x86_64, i686-gma3600 and x86_64-gma3600 versions.

I am currently working on merging the generic and gma3600 differences into single releases to reduce the number of builds. Also, what is currently referred to as the Deskpro edition will be discontinued. The primary Bluestar Linux editions will become bluestar-linux (currently the Desktop edition) and bluestar-linux-developer (currently the Deskpro-Developer edition). Their ISO image sizes will be 2G and 4.6G, respectively.

I will periodically release new builds of the desklite-e18 edition, likely with little fanfare, since the Enlightenment DE seems to have a good number of fans. There is currently a linux-3.13.5 release available for download for anyone who is interested.

Users are encouraged to contact me with any issues or comments, either via the Bluestar forums, the Bluestar Linux Facebook page, or by messaging me via the Bluestar website.

Quelitu 13.10 Saucy Salamander — Just Released

Quelitu-1280X1024-EN

Description: Quelitu is a lightweight, user-friendly, and really fast Linux operating system based on Lubuntu.  It also offers advanced components like Qx Hub (a rapid-access feature similar to Ubuntu’s Dash/HUD) and Configuration and Maintenance Centers.  The Initial Configuration Center makes it easy to customize the system to your taste and add more advanced software right from the start.

Users have a choice of several desktopsLxde (a simpler interface available in four layouts: Default, Ubuntu, Mac OSX, and Laptop), sleek Quelitu Jazz (an intermediate interface based on Enlightenment), and Quelitu Kids (which allows you to convert an old PC into a fun and educational computer for kids for free).

With Quelitu, lightweight no longer means ‘bare and basic‘ but ‘competitive with bigger more advanced’ operating systems, if simpler and faster than they are.

Quelitu is available as Live CD hybrid ISO for testing and installation and as a Quelitu Upgrade Package for those who want to switch from other distributions.

Its low RAM usage makes it lightning fast on new computers and an ideal alternative for refurbishing aging Windows XP and Vista computers.

New Quelitu 13.10 features (see links below for details) include a new user-friendly Windows-like Start Menu, new themes, better support for games, random wallpaper, and more.

Make sure that you check the Download page for special installation instructions.
