The system is a remaster of Ubuntu 12.10 – codenamed “Quantal Quetzal”, released on October 18, 2012. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity 6.10.0 (Ubuntu). I have added Gnome 3.6.1, Gnome Classic, Cairo-Dock with Gnome, KDE 4.9.2, XBMC 11, Cinnamon 1.6.7, Xfce 4.10 and Fluxbox 1.3.2 as alternatives, so that everyone on the spot (during live operation) can compare the different nine (9) Desktop Environments. The system language is ENGLISH.
Program content etc
Among many other programs LibreOffice 3.6.2, Thunderbird 17.0, Firefox 17.0, Brasero, Vlc, Gimp and win32 codecs. In addition, java, flash and all necessary additions in order to install programs from source. All programs have been updated to the latest available stable version as of November 30, 2012. See a complete list of all installed packages HERE.
NEWS in version 121130 of MeX
My first version of MeX 12:10 is from 121102. In the current version minor errors in version 121102 are corrected. In addition, there are now no longer any known serious bugs in Ubuntu 12.10 (and thus not in today’s version of MeX). Moreover, I added a ninth Desktop environment. Namely Cairo-Dock 3.1 with Gnome. Kernel 3.5.0-18 exton is replaced with kernel 3.5.0-19-exton.
My special kernel 3.5.0-19-exton corresponding Kernel.org’s kernel 3.6.7. The orignal Ubuntu kernel is 3.5.0-17-generic.
