I have made some progress with the Flidas development images, which as
usual are available here:
http://jenkins.trisquel.info/makeiso/iso/

The main improvements are:

- Installable through the graphical installer Ubiquity.
- Improved the GTK theme to get rid of its main issues. It is now based
on BlueMenta from Mate, with custom panel settings.
- Strengthened the signing cypher for the package repositories.

More updates coming soon!

If I install this, will I be able to apt-get upgrade to stable when it's released? Any downside to doing that versus installing stable from a fresh iso?

but go ahead and try otherwise just expect some minor caveats

If you install Trisquel 8 alpha, you will have, through regular updates, Trisquel 8 stable once it is stable. The downside is that it currently is an alpha version: expect issues...

So, the first thing I usually do after installing Trisquel is apt-get install gnome-shell, but that doesn't seem to work in the new version.

Does anyone know how I can install Gnome 3 on Trisquel 8?

Thanks.

in my opinion mate is way better. and it isn't nearly as confusing.

three or four years ago I used to use malwaresoft winbugs 8. but have since smartened up.

Also gnome eats battery life for breakfast.

Though I use lxde mostly so yeah. Idk...

I personally hope there is still a trisquel mini with lxde. or that trisquel mini appears in the package manager at least. because I like lxde.

There will be a Trisquel 8 Mini. Se what quidam was writing yesterday:

## Trisquel mini and other editions
As usual I've focused on the default edition first. We can choose if we want to consider alternative versions blockers for the overall release of Flidas, or if we are OK with releasing the standard edition first and then release derivatives when ready. I suggest the first option.

Yep I agree. The mini should come after trisquel 8 is stable.

Is LXDE still being developed? I was under the impression that PCMan had moved development efforts over to LXQT and the Qt toolkit due to his frustration with GTK development.

Trisquel (as upstream) has had a majority GTK orientation to it over the years so that may play a role in what lightweight DE is used. If LXDE is still being developed alongside LXQT that would be perfect for T8.

If T8 would choose LXQT for the Mini version it would seem strange to me. Hard to imagine a 'lightweight' version of a distro should be based on Qt and presumably K Apps. I have always thought of KDE and Qt apps as shiny, very full-featured and more resource intensive than the GTK side. Maybe that's a false perception these days.

LXQT is supposedly almost as lightweight as LXDE. in my experience anyways.

just because LX has a QT part instead of GTK doesn't mean it uses anywhere near as much resources as kde.

seriously... ask lxqt developers and you may understand better...

MintMenu isn't in Ubuntu, so it isn't going to be in Trisquel. There's a variant called "MATE Menu", though; package is "mate-menu". I don't know if that's in Trisquel 8's repo yet.

It'd be great to be able to get Trisquel 8, its signature, and its md5 via an encrypted download option. https://trisquel.info/en/issues/22127

Nothing to be depressed over - Just don't use MD5. Other options exist that are safe (for now), in the form of SHA-2 and SHA-3: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Hash_Algorithms (I'm not recommending SHA-1 because it has potential issues.)

If this is the alpha release, the final one is going to be super duper awesome !!

I like it, too; using it on two of my boxes. Having trouble getting it to detect and use USB wifi radio, that's perhaps, worth a call to Think Penguin.

I just bought TP-Link's TL-WN722N which works with Trisquel and Parabola out of the box.

According to Terminal lsusb:
"Atheros Communications, Inc. AR9271 802.11n chip"
V. 1.10

I see that there are new Iso images out (2017-04-10).

Are these the beta release ?

Couldn't find a release statement, hence asking.
Thanks !

Everything there will always be beta. The final ones will be on the Download page, linked to on the top of the site along with Documentation, Forum and Donate. When Trisquel 8 appears there those will be the final ones. :)

I think he wants to know if the new ISO is beta or alpha.

The latest ISO is much bigger @ 2gb. The previous one was only some 1.3 gigs.

It looks great. Very conventional, which is a good thing. I wonder what the new default wallpaper will be like.

If you get a garbled desktop in VirtualBox, try this solution (switching tty's).

Yes, I did want to know whether it's beta or alpha.

On the other hand I might just download it and test.

I am using T8 now. I do have some issues, but since I am not savvy when it comes to computers, I am unsure whether these issue are due to the iso or me being alpha (pre-alpha in my case).

My point is, if I can make any daily use of it, I suppose most people here can.

Consider though the following truth: we are still much more knowledgeable than say 95% of Windows users. So there's that, mate Bahn :P

I agree and thanks for reminding me, that alpha (pre- or any) means development HAS begun!

You can change the password!

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword

That way you can recover your account.

As you can see, it is really simple to gain Root access to a PC if you have physical access to it. This is the reason why you should always encrypt your hard drive.

Not only that but also "persistence", that is malicious firmware surviving OS reinstallation, that is "the worst nightmare you ever had". But then again you would need to attract a lot of attention and be of some interest for an attacker of that kind to spend (little) time and (little) money to persistently root you, I guess, meh.

But the owner would know about the intrusion, since the password (most likely) would be different, right?

I'm wondering if working with Ubuntu MATE (https://ubuntu-mate.org/blog/ubuntu-mate-xenial-final-release/) would be less work than with vanilla Ubuntu.

Trisquel works with the packages in *buntu's repositories, not with a specific edition of the distribution.

yes, but since trisquel 8 will have mate as its desktop environment, I was thinking if working with ubuntu mate makes life easier for us.

I don't understand. Trisquel draws its packages from Ubuntu's repositories.

You're saying there's another package repository with ready-to-use MATE that bypasses some work undertaken?

Or, you suggest a closer bond and greater collaboration between MATE developers and Trisquel project?

Hi,

the iso image is actually 2.1G.

You probably downloaded an incomplete image, as it had not been
completely uploaded by 2017-06-18.

In the https://trisquel.info/fr/issues/22545 ticket, I noted that the drivers for the the TPE-N150USB are missing.
Here are the issues that I have with the said driver.
Does somebody has the same ?

Note that WLAN works perfectly.

Ad-Hoc mode:
-WEP doesn't work.
-Can't use the security WPA or WPA2.
-The provider of the ad-hoc mode can be either a trisquel 7, trisquel 8 and mixed it doesn't work.

Basically I tried this:
Provider -> receptor
Trisquel 7 -> Trisquel 8
Doesn't work

Trisquel 8 -> Trisquel 7
Doesn't work

Trisquel 8 -> Trisquel 8
Doesn't work

Trisquel 7 -> Trisquel 7
Works

On both PCs the usb adapter used was a TPE-N150USB from think-penguin.

I wish you all a good day.
