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?

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.

Hello,

Just to clarify, below is the contents of my sources.list file. Is this correct? Haven't received any updates for a while.

Is it possible to start in live mode at this stage? If it is possible I will download the iso.

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.

Hello onpon4, I can confirm that mate-menu is available in Trisquel 8 repo. I am using it now.

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

The security of the MD5 hash function is severely compromised...

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.)

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 !

Iscritto: 09/13/2010

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

Ignorance is bliss, they seem to think

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

Can I upgrade from older 8.0 to newer 8.0 without reinstall?

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.

Iscritto: 02/17/2016

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
I just want to mention that I have tried to install
(version uploaded today morning)

[ ] trisquel_8.0_amd64.iso 2017-06-18 07:53 1.4Gfrom:http://jenkins.trisquel.info/makeiso/iso/

but it crashes at the end of installation when removing stuff.

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.

Dear Trisquel users,

I would like to try the alpha version of Trisquel 8, but I have failed in creating a bootable usb
stick.

I have downloaded the file trisquel_8.0_amd64.iso, checked the md5sum, and I have tried
to move it to a usb stick by using gnome-disk-utility version 3.12.1, installed on the latest
version of Debian. I selected my usb stick, chose restore Disk image, and then I selected the iso
file. Unfortunately, this did not yield a bootable usb stick. I tried to boot from it, but that did
not work.

Could you give me some advice?

Best regards,
S2108887

Use dd.

sudo dd if=/path/to/image.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=8M;sync

You might be better off using the dd command (but please read the warning below first!). Open a terminal, type 'dd if=/path/to/ISO of=/dev/sdX' (/path/to/ISO is the file path of the ISO, and /dev/sdX is the USB device found in little grey letters in the title bar of GNOME disks when you have the USB selected). Then press enter, wait for the prompt to return, and you should be done!

*WARNING*: Make 100% sure you have the right USB file before copying. If you get it wrong, you could end up overwriting the start of your hard drive or some other thing, which will not be fun at all. If you have any doubts, double check here: I can assure you dd'ing to the wrong device makes permanently deleting the wrong file seem tiny in comparison.

Hi! Sometimes and on some older hardware especially (I have one such laptop, 2004 stuff) USB boot just won't work :/
In these rare occasions the best is to burn a DVD and install it from there.

If for some reason.. no dvd.. then 'dd' is indeed IMHO the fastest and most reliable way (never failed me) to create a bootable ISO on the sticky.

Also make sure to go into your BIOS and set the USB drive as the first one in the menu, that is the one from which the OS is to be booted.

cheers

Dear Trisquel users,

Thank you all for your help. Unfortunately, I have once more failed in creating a bootable
usb stick. I used the dd command, and I think I did it correctly, but I still could not boot
the usb stick.

To check whether I had used the dd command correctly, I downloaded a iso file from Debian and
tried to use the dd command to create a bootable usb stick. This worked fine. The file I
downloaded was debian-live-9.0.1-amd64-xfce.iso.

I do not know why the dd command works with debian-live-9.0.1-amd64-xfce.iso, but not with
trisquel_8.0_amd64.iso. Are there additional things I should do to create a bootable usb stick
with Trisquel? Could there be something wrong with my computer?

Best regards,
S2108887
