ARCHLabs+3 Released and new Website

PostPosted by Dobbie03 » Tue Mar 07, 2017 5:37 pm

Brett and I are happy to announce the latest release for ARCHLabs, along with a new ISO we have a new webpage.

We aren't going to bother with naming each release, mainly because I am not imaginative enough to think of a new name each time and to be honest I quite like the "+" naming scheme.

Changelog as follows:

- Bunsen Light set as default theme
- All applications are preinstalled (hence the big ISO)
- Conky should start at login
- AIO and ARCHLabs Extras have been removed
- tint2conf and obkey have been added to obmenu
- Calamares install issue has been fixed.

As with the last release, if for some reason you don't want to use Calamares installer you can still access the Architect installer. Use the following commands in Termite:


Code: Select all
sudo /abif-master/abif



There is no passwords so just hit enter.

If for any reason you have any issues, please post in the forum. One post per issue/bug.
We can't help you if you choose to enable the Testing Repos.

Download links are at the new website, under downloads:

https://archlabsblog.wordpress.com/

And from Sourceforge:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/archlabs/

This will be the last release for a while. Unless we come up with some thing major, we are pretty happy with how things are. As Arch is rolling, so is ARCHLabs, so multiple releases aren't necessary.
Of course we are open to suggestions, if there is something you want added or changed let us know so we can take it into consideration.

Once installed and you wish to remove the Virtual Kernel Modules, open Termite and execute the following:

Code: Select all
sudo pacman -Rns virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-modules-arch
sudo rm /etc/modules-load.d/virtualbox.conf



If you use the ABIF installer, the installer icon will need to be removed from tint2, which you can do in tint2conf or by editing the tint2 with tint2zen.

Thanks as always to our friend Jody James. His knowledge and help has been invaluable.

Cheers and beers

Brett & Matt

I tend to be very short in my bug reports and other posts but does not mean I do not like what you are doing.

Just saw that there had been an update to the +3 iso to +3.2. Anything significant to worry about? Or can I comfortingly enjoy my install and start to worry when +4 hits the server? :)
