SparkyLinux 3.5.1 “Annagerman” Enlightenment 19 is ready to go.

What is “under the hood” of SparkyLinux 3.5.1 E19?

ISO image of SparkyLinux 3.5.1 E19 Live/Install provides packages updating from Debian ‘testing’ repository and updating Enlightenment packages from the git repository.

The Enlightenment packages have been updated up to version 0.19.19.18964.
The system runs on Linux kernel 3.16 with systemd 215-5.

This edition joined to the Sparky Base Edition group.
What does it mean?
The ISO image features base system, X Server, Enlightenment and a minimal set of tools.
You have gotten a ready to use environment to configure it as you like. Install additional applications via Synaptic, Sparky-APTus, Sparky-APTus-Extra or just APT.

SparkyLinux 3.5.1 E19 features two themes for your choice.

1. RadianceE19-Sparky – it’s a RadianceE19 modified theme. The theme has been prepered to be fitted to the Sparky’s default GTK theme ‘Sparky3-theme’ and the icon set ‘NoirCrystal’.
The wallpaper is made by LiquidSky64.

RadianceE19-Sparky

2. Default (the default Enlightenment theme) + DeLorean-Dark GTK theme for integration with GTK based applications.

Dark theme

 

SparkyLinux is rolling release system so you don’t have to reinstall your existing ‘E’ edition.
Simply leave the Enlightenment desktop and make upgrade as following.

E17 users:
apt-get remove e17 && apt-get autoremove
apt-get update
apt-get install e19 dolorean-dark

E18 users:
apt-get remove enlightenment && apt-get autoremove
apt-get update
apt-get install e19 dolorean-dark

Sparky 3.5 E19-dev users (recommended):
apt-get remove e19 && apt-get autoremove
apt-get update
apt-get install e19 dolorean-dark

or (it does not remove ‘e19-dev’ packages):
apt-get apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get install dolorean-dark

Check has been the upgrade done well:
apt-get install -f

 

Wallpapers made by LiquidSky64 + my two modifications – green and gray:

New iso images of Sparky can be downloaded from the page:
http://sparkylinux.org/download/
Enlightenment themes can be downloaded from sourceforge:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/sparkylinux/files/files/themes/

Known issues:
– module ‘cpufreq’ is off in 32 bit edition due to problem with permissions, even set it up as it should be
– module ‘systray’ still doesn’t work, so it’s off too. The system tray is provided by LXDE panel ‘lxpanel’ (minimalized)
– libglib2.0 2.40.0-5 and its libs have been not upgraded to the newest version 2.42.0-1 due to an issue – don’t upgrade it and wait for a newer version

All packages have been synchronized with Debian “testing” repositories as of 02/09/2014.
The system runs on Linux kernel 3.14.2 (3.14.15-2).

This time the Enlightenment edition is available in two versions:
– E18 – the stable line
– E19-dev (0.19.0.18850) – development packages compiled from git repository as of 02/09/2014 – for beta testers.

New application “Custom ISO Builder” lets you rebuild iso images of SparkyLinux and some other images similar to Sparky, check HowTo: http://sparkylinux.org/custom-iso-builder-howto-part-1/

New tool ‘Sparky-APTus-Extra’ lets you quick install additional applications from SparkyLinux repo, such as:

apt-get remove enlightenment terminology
apt-get autoremove

Then:
apt-get update
apt-get install e19

Known problems of Sparky E19-dev edition:

* installation of missing language packages
* every option is placed in a separated tab

sudo sparkylinux-installer gui

 

Sparky CLI Edition is also available (back).
It has been rebuilt and features now: core system, our old installer, mc, wicd-cli, elinks and wifi drivers.

 

We have made a couple of successful testing installations of Sparky in EFI mode in a virtual environment. We can’t promise that installation on a physical machine is fine.
We never tried this, because we don’t have any “normal” machine with EFI.

New iso images of SparkyLinux you can grab from our download page:
http://sparkyLinux.org/download

New iso images can be used to make new, fresh Sparky installation.
You don’t have to reinstall your system if you have Sparky installed on your machine.
Just make full system upgrade and follow the enclosed upgrading guides.

Don’t forget to donate a small (or big) tip if you enjoy SparkyLinux :)

3. Leave Enlightenment desktop, login to an other desktop or leave graphical environment and login to a text console with keys: Alt+Control+F2 (F2-F6).

4. Remove E17 packages:
apt-get remove e17 e17-data libefreet1
apt-get autoremove

5. Install E18 packages:

‘SparkyBackup-System’ – the default Sparky backup tool has been removed from the system.
It needs to be rebuild due to some changes between system base and installer of Sparky 3.2 and 3.3.
