DreamLinux 3.0 RC1

Filed under

I've toyed with DreamLinux before (2.2) so I felt inclined to give the RC1 of DreamLinux 3.0 a go. I've always had an interest in DreamLinux because of the interface; I like the OSX feel they've deliberately aimed for and I appreciate there are a lot of users who also like this theme.


DreamLinux may have one of the least intuitive installation processes I've seen in over 12 months - I place a lot of importance on an easy installation. In my experience if an application is difficult to install most users will get tired and stop trying. This is very much what I faced with DreamLinux.

When opting to "Install" from the LiveCD I was told "no partitions were found".

KDE Plasma 5.5

  • KDE Plasma 5.5 Windows 8 Metro-Inspired Theme Looks Interesting
    KDE developer Kai Uwe has just published a lengthy article where he talks about developing a Windows 8-inspired theme for the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.5 desktop environment.
  • KDE Developer Working On Windows 8 Inspired Look
    Kai Uwe has been working on some experimental hacks to resemble Windows 8, although Microsoft's default interface has changed with Windows 10. He's calling this work "U-Bahn" (the German equivalent of a Metro subsystem system) in reference to Microsoft at the time calling it Metro. This was just some brief hacking and he's not planning to see this U-Bahn project through to the end.
  • Pursuing Awesomeness
    While applets can be installed through “Get Hot New Stuff” and distribution repositories, there’s also the classic .plasmoid file. A feature suggested by one of my colleagues – fresh KDE Plasma user – was to drag .plasmoid files onto the desktop or panel and have them installed. After Marco Martin implemented the neccessary KPackage plumbing this is now possible.
