Another 3 desktops

Last Updated on: 20th September 2023, 01:54 pm

Another week gone and next 3 desktops are ready to install using the Sparky Advanced Installer from the MinimaISO images:
– GNOME Flashback
– IceWM

The ‘Sparky Advanced Installer’ lets you install one of the 12 desktops now: Budgie, Enlightenment, Fluxbox, GNOME Flashback, IceWM, JWM, KDE, LXDE, LXQt, MATE, Openbox & Xfce with a very small set of applications.

A problem with loading the Sparky wallpaper and theme in the Budgie Edition after the first run from a hard drive has been fixed.

There is no new iso image, so if you’d like to test the new added desktops, simply use the existing Sparky 4.3-dev1 iso images: download/development/

Don’t forget to upgrade the ‘sparky-backup-core’ tool to the latest version (20160229 or above), in the live system, before running the Sparky Advanced Installer:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sparky-backup-core

Then run the Sparky Advanced Installer normally and install and test new desktops.

There is a new screenshot’s page of Sparky MinimalISO desktops: 4-3-minimaliso-screenshots/
