SbK Xfce-Compiz 923 release

#1 Post by jimb1963 »

I am happy to announce the release of SbK Debian Xfce-Compiz 923
The watermark is not present in the installed OS.

Both iso's in this release include:
1. The 6.4.11 kernel.
2. Compiz 9 with the rotating cube for virtual desktops, faded windows in the background, wobbly windows, and other effects.
3. The New KoraSpin-Turquoise6 icon theme with light and dark versions of the control icons. They are part of the KoraSpin-923 package.
4. The new SpinThemeDarkTurquoise8 matching Gtk and Kvantum themes in one package was used.
5. The same background and themes are used for the grub, desktop, and login screen.
6. The iso's are up to date as of 9/5/2023. Lots of updates since the last release.
7. Waterfox is the installed browser.
8. An optional Firefox/Waterfox theme, SbK Dark Turquoise8, is available at just click on the image in Firefox or one of its forks to install it.

Both iso's also contain the standard SbK features.

1. The latest kernel.
2. A Debian testing install that is 100% Debian compatible.
3. It is multiarch by default to make running wine games and other 32bit
4. The Spins by Kilz signed repository is enabled for SbK project packages.
5. Timeshift autosnap apt is installed. It takes a snapshot before upgrading so any bad upgrades can be easily reversed.
6. A basic Conky with a color theme that matches the desktop themes.
7. They are rolling release installs following testing. As setup they will always follow testing.
8. New custom dark themes every release.

License information
The installed OS has Debian main, contrib, non-free, and non-free-firmware enabled.
The only packages in the iso from non-free are faac, p7zip-rar, rar, unrar, and midisport-firmware.
The Wallpapers are under the Unsplash license.
The rest of the packages in the SbK repo are under standard free licenses, most under the GPL v3.

A full and very minimal iso’s can be found here.
