View Full Version : The Feisty Fawn left outs.

April 22nd, 2007, 09:24 PM
Dunno if this is the correct forum but i tried to look for general discussions about the OS but couldn't find it..

I recently upgraded to v7.04 and experienced that some of the themes disappeared and that my favorite wallpaper had disappeared in the wallpapers list. Dawn Of Ubuntu.

May I ask why? :P

Dawn of Ubuntu was the nicest wallpaper to ship w/ Ubuntu.

What? No Dawn Of Ubuntu? :cry:

I noticed a lack of good themes, but I guess they were trying to make room for more applications to be installed. But still though, there should be an out-of-the-box option of a non-ugly background. I had to immediately google for a tolerable background image besides the two gross looking ones.

Dawn and Spring of Ubuntu:


Sorry it got pulled, but with the 700MB magic number, a lot of tough decisions must be made. Think of all the space that had to be made for Compiz, the migration manager, codec manager, restricted driver manager, and new network manager. It's a wonder they still manage to squeeze a wallpaper in there.

One of the other things that got pulled because of the size limit was the icon themes in Open Office. You'll notice that the only one that works is the Human theme. But the good news is that the other ones are in the repos:)

Anyone know how to get my favourite Xubuntu splash screen back? I love that little mouse runnin' in the Xubuntu "wheel" :(

I upgraded from Edgy to Feisty, and still have Dawn of Ubuntu, plus the custom wallpapers I created in Edgy and Dapper.

All transfered fine (no home partition).

yeah there were only 4 wallpapers if I remember right, and they left out our favourites ;(

The Dawn of Ubuntu is in Feisty's repositories. Just search for "wallpaper" in synaptic.

does that really matters? I have thousands of photos to choose from if I want a nice desktop background and for icons and themes there is gnome-look.org. so what's all the fuss about? it's just one 700 mb cd, you know...;)

How can the developers keep updating Ubuntu and keep it on one CD? Aren't they going to have to keep removing more and more old things? Will they ever consider putting it on two CDs, or allowing an optional second CD?

Thanks very much! It is not under just edgy, but under edgy community wallpapers. If I can make it work, anyone can. Thanks.
