Last Updated on: 29th April 2022, 07:15 pm

SparkyLinux 2.1 “Eris” Ultra Edition” has been released!

The system is built as all 2.x releases on Debian testing “Wheezy”.
All packages have been synchronized with Debian testing repositories of 23/01/2013.
It features customized ultra light and fast Openbox desktop.

What else?
– Fluxbox is out – I wasn’t happy with it so all my attention I put on Openbox
– standard Openbox exit option changed for Shutdown/Reboot/Log out
– added update-manager
– Polish repos mirror server changed for the Debian main one
– added a few new wallpapers
– added to menu:
— run application
— graphical, two panels file manager Tux Commander (as root as well) to have quick access to system files
— added AppFinder – an app for quick access and launching applications
— changed standard panel configurator Tint2Conf for TintWizard

  1. Like your distro and openbox is my favourite , It would be great if you base your distro on ubuntu or arch linux rather than debian because both of these offer latest packages than can debian offer.

    All the best .
