    Ubuntu GNOME Remix Beta released

    Since a lot of the info in my original post is now outdated I felt it best to start a new thread related solely to Jeremy Bicha's Ubuntu GNOME Remix Beta release which is explained in the release notes here:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuGNOME/...otes/12.10Beta

    The MD5SUMS, package manifests, and standard download links can be found here:

    http://bicha.net/ubuntu-gnome-remix/

    Please do however use the torrents wherever possible to reduce the load on the servers

    Please also consider subscribing to the mailing list:

    https://lists.launchpad.net/ubuntu-gnome/

    One of the projects greatest needs ATM is someone to fill the role of QA lead. In Jeremy's own words:

    I'm still looking for a QA Lead. The QA Lead ideally should have
    plenty of in-depth knowledge and experience of Launchpad and
    development of Ubuntu and GNOME. I guess there's not a lot of people
    with that background with the interest of taking on this
    responsibility, but I'm still hopeful! In the meantime, I'll be
    taking on that role.
    More on the need for a QA team here:

    https://lists.launchpad.net/ubuntu-gnome/msg00012.html

    There is also an IRC channel for discussions regarding the development of Ubuntu GNOME Remix:

    #ubuntu-gnome
    I hope I'm not leaving out any essential info

    Re: Ubuntu GNOME Remix Beta released

    Is the beta a hybrid ISO? The reason I ask is that no matter how I write the iso file (amd64) to my thumb drive it absolutely refuses to boot stating that there is no image to mount. It appears that it's looking for casper on a CD not a thumb drive or so says the path. My thumb drive is formatted to FAT32 (the tables are fine) and as a test I wrote and successfully booted both Ubuntu 12.10 beta 2 and Linux Mint Maya (both amd64 versions) via the same thumb drive.

    I've used two different versions of Unetbootin (version available in 12.04 repositories as well as the latest version via PPA) as well as the USB Creator from a 12.10 beta 2 install (The USB Creator crashes constantly) to no avail. Is this a bug in the ISO or is a DVD only iso the only version available at the moment?

    I used the Startup Disk Creator utility in Precise to create a usb drive, as the same app crashed in Quantal. Once done, it booted with with only the usual graphics problem.

    I've just been using DVD's here so I'm clueless about creating a boot-able flash drive.

    usb-creator-gtk crashed

    Just to sum it all up.
    • The dd command it only creates an non boot-able ISO 9660 image
    • The usb-creator crashes when creating the boot sector ( when you are asked for a password last in the process) Bug#915626


    There are two ways to create a bootable version of the beta.
    • Burn the iso to a DVD or
    • Boot into a livesession or installed version of Ubuntu / Ubuntu Gnome-Shell Remix 12.04 and use the usb-creator from there


    There really should be more focus on having a working usb-creator as many users nowadays use bootable usb-pen's.

    Agreed. I still use DVD's but more and more machines no longer even have optical drives

    Re: Ubuntu GNOME Remix Beta released - printer install problem

    Installed in a VBox VM directly from ISO. Manual reboot no problems. Updated system to current, still OK.

    Then went to add network printer. Got

    FirewallD is not running. Network printer detection needs services mdns, ipp, ipp-client and samba-client enabled on firewall.

    Same thing happens on quantal desktop if I try to set printers after installing gnome-panel and logging onto No Effects. Printer setup only works fron Unity.

    I think there's a report in Launchpad for this, but looks like it's being ignored, since Unity is the official way of the future.
