September 21th, 2012, the Emmabuntüs 2
celebrates Free in peace ;-)

The Collective Emmabuntüs is pleased to announce the release on September 21, 2012, the first maintenance release of Emmabuntüs 2 1.01 based on Xubuntu 12.04.1. This distro was designed to facilitate the refurbishing of computers given to human help associations, especially Emmaüs communities (where the name comes from) and promote the discoverery of Linux and GNU by beginners. This thousandth Linux distro is intended to be sleek, accessible, equitable.

This update follows the first maintenance update distribution based on Ubuntu release August 23, 2012. In this new version we have not added any new features apart from Caffeine, software management modes of operation of the computer. But we have the opportunity to treat various anomalies in version 1.01, in order to provide all users who have dared to install a whole new distribution and and not well known, even greater ease of installation, and to celebrate our way of peace, without which nothing is possible !!!

For this new version, the following fixes and improvements have been made:

  • Updated packages for Xubuntu 12.04.1, codecs and extensions contained in web browsers (Firefox, Chromium), the Thunderbird mail reader

  • Passage to the OpenJDK version 7, and Teamviewer to version 7

  • Launch default profile with Dock for beginners, and not with the profile "experts" to have fewer software icons in the dock at startup. To put the dock in another profile, see here

  • Shortcuts Thunar (File Explorer) in 3 languages (English, French and Spanish)

  • Removing the version number of the Emmabuntüs 2 in two file systems for the benefit of its display in the home screen, to remove a small problem during the update Maintenance Xubuntu

  • 25% reduction in the size of the configuration data of the user account in order to accelerate the start-up and reduce the overhead in Live Mode

  • Update start page web browsers for the benefit of our homepage to allow new users to our distribution to discover all the items available for handling even easier. You note in passing that we migrated our platform to Emmubuntu in Emmabuntus, as we created initially;-) This new platform is operational in September 21, 2012, and will host future ISO distributions of Emmabuntüs
