The 12th and the last in this year monthly report of the Sparky project:
• added to repos: Midori 7.0, Lightdm-Settings
• Sparky’s Linux kernel updated up to version 4.20.0
• Sparky 5.6 released
• the new app APTus AppCenter is still under development, so it takes time to even make a first beta

• small update of iso images of stable 4.9.1 and rolling 5.6.1 lines

Sparky news 2018/11

The 11th monthly report of 2018 of the Sparky project:
– Sparky’s Linux kernel updated up to version 4.19.5 & 4.20-rc4
– the ‘etcher-electron’ package changed its name to ‘balena-etcher-electron’; uninstall the old one and install the new one if you use the tool
– Advanced Installer fstab config has been improved and the old fashion /dev/sdX device numbers is replaced by UUIDs now
– Sparky Backup Core got configuration of all supported desktops and window managers so a new iso image displays your desktop name at the boot screen now
– APTus got a new small tool called quick-list which searches packages in the repository and displays info about them; thank’s to Elton
– the first Sparky Small Business Server development iso is out, but it is not usable yet, it is really development image
– I also started working on a new application, which was laying down in a dark corner very long time, called APTus AppCenter, which should replace sparky-aptus, sparky-aptus-extra, sparky-aptus-gamer, sparky-offiice, sparky-codecs, and a few other packages, and will integrate all the tools into one providing more useful tool for easy installation many popular applications.

The new tool is very simple and lightweight, as all Sparky tools, and uses Yad and HTML technology.

Any help is welcome to develop the new app, small tips are warm welcome too 🙂

APTus AppCenter

Payment day coming (2018)

 

Donate Like a year ago, and ago, and ago, Sparky needs YOUR help now!

As you probably know, SparkyLinux is a non-profit project so does not earn money.
And probably some of you know that we have to pay bills for hosting server (vps), domains, the power (electricity), broadband (internet connection), etc., etc., from our personal, home budget.

The time for paying for our server coming quickly again so help us sending donation now!

This year we need 1200 PLN for the VPS which has to be paid until November 9, 2018.

And as every month, we also need 500 PLN for other bills to cover most our needs.

So all together, this month, we need your donations for about 1700 PLN / ~400 Euros / ~460 USD), please.

We also have asked for donations our community at Linuxiarze.pl and ArchiveOS.org as well. Our virtual server hosts a few web pages, all IT / Open Source / Linux related: SparkyLinux.org, Linuxiarze.pl, ArchiveOS.org and SoftMania.org.

So please donate now to keep Sparky alive. Any donation will be very helpful.

You are the best community in the Universe so I really believe we CAN do it!

Visit the donation page to find how to send out money.
