    xubuntu Voyager 32bit is released

    I recommended it highly for those who enjoy extras such as preinstalled Conky choices, lots of automatically changing wallpapers/screensavers, and the stability of xubuntu 12.10.

    Find it by googling xubuntu Voyager.

    No clue why this distro's URL is not allowed on these forums???

    In any event, once you find the site, use the language option to change from French to English (or whatever your native language is).

    My only issue with this Xubuntu "remix" is so much is geared to French. Even some warning and pop-ups appear in French. This seems to be a distro for French speaking persons only. Though it is still more than usable for others if you don't ming the French centric feel of Voyager.

    The url is allowed, I just didn't take the time to get it. It's easy enough to find.

    Not so. The translator is available for the download site and it installs in any language just as all distributions do. Look at who makes lots of great forks of ubuntu, plenty are from countries other than English speaking ones. China, India, Turkey, etc.

    I get no pop-ups in French, did you install it or run live?

    Aw now, come on -- this Xubuntu "remix"--

    Find a fork that isn't a "remix" of something else.. I love them...

    I ran 12.10 live. I had 12.04 installed for about a month. And even though i chose English, I got several French tooltips and pop-ups.

    As far as a Xubuntu "remix", I meant no disrespect. But that's what it is, is it not? Xubuntu with a bunch of customizations. Great customizations, to be honest. But it's heavily based on Xubuntu, uses the repos..thus, remix. Just like all the other Ubuntu based distros. Remix, respin...whatever it is, I do like it.

    Yes, it is xubuntu. That's why it's called Xubuntu Voyager, and that's why it's so stable. IMO So you use 12.04? So did I.

    You shouldn't upgrade xubuntu through updater though, only use fresh install of voyager.

    I like the looks of conky but can't figure out how to use scrips, so I really appreciate the conky control for dummies--it sold me. I wish someone would do something like that for the repos. so everyone could use it.

    The 'lone' developer has done a fantastic job with this. I also have tried and like other forks equally well.

    Indeed. That's all I do are fresh installs. I have all my important files, images, documents and Firefox profile on an external drive as well as Dropbox. Fresh installs are the ONLY way to go, in my opinion.

    Yes, especially for those who aren't so technically inclined like me. I've seen requests for help from users with a fork like this who've updated via update manager to the newer version of ''buntu, not realizing that it will mess up their forked system. It's sad.

    Installed 12.10. I selected English, of course. Still getting a lot of French.

    Me too. I installed a couple of hours ago and it isn't as smooth as 12.04. I also got a little french. The french on my notices was line 1, line 2 was in English. I don't know if all notices would be in both languages.

    The dev said he was having trouble with the 32bit, it's noticeable to me.

    I'm reinstalling 12.04 at the moment because I had no issues with it.
    Ah well,,,

    Software center was showing package names in french. All I had to do was change lanaguge in the control panel and then do sudo apt-get --reinstall install software-center

    Where else do you guys see french? I believe synapse can also be fixed with a quick reinstall.

    What other troubles do you have with the 32-bit? I'm running 64 bit btw and it has the same French mentions.
