GoblinX Releases G:Mini 3.0.rc01

Filed under
News

"The GoblinX Project is proud to announce the second release of the next G:Mini. The G:Mini 3.0 rc01 (2.9.90) is released. The G:Mini formely known as ‘GoblinX Mini Edition‘ is the son of GoblinX and contains only XFCE as the windows manager and GTK/GTK2 based applications. The edition is ideal for those users whose want to remaster the distro or with difficulties in downloading more than three hundred of megabytes (the original size of g:Standard).

This release was developed together with Vitor Micillo who worked hard in his own image to find bugs and report solutions. The final image was prepared by myself (Grobsch) and tested during last week.

This G:Mini edition includes the lastest Xfce 4.6 which brought several improvements and new features. Xfce-session now offers hibernate and suspend options. It has a new notification system with themes managed by Xfce-notifyd. Xfce-power-manager to help laptop users set up a power profile for two different modes “on battery power” and “on ac power”. Gigolo to manage connections to remote filesystems using GIO/GVFS. A better Control Center and more. Below there is a list with the most important changes.

Another major change is the release of different images, one full distribution without remove any files including all locales (internationalization files), and a second customized image only with default english language and without man pages, documentation, headers (.h), some themes and files.

In order to enable your own language with G:Mini full you must press TAB just after you select an Isolinux menu item and type a paramater, for example, i18n=de_DE to start using deutsche language. You need to know your locale alias to start using your favorite language. This method will use gettext to change the default language and only few applications will continue using english."
