I've been dreading making this announcement, but here goes...
OBRevenge OS will no longer be supporting i686 (32bit) architecture.
The writing has been on the wall for i686 for quite some time. Several months ago, Arch Linux announced that they would be phasing out support for 32bit. The Arch Linux iso's have not supported i686 installations for a couple of months now, and support for i686 packages will end in November. Because OBR uses an Arch Linux base, my ability to support i686 is dependent on them.
Existing installations will continue to receive updates through November; however, by then I strongly encourage i686 users to move to another system that will continue to support them with security updates.
The OBRevenge 2017.04 release will be x86_64 (64bit) only.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
Hey guys! So the mate-desktop stack recently updated, requiring an update of the deps of the control panel and the panel switcher. With these updates, I'd recommend removing the two packages mentioned above, updating, and reinstalling after the update is done.
Also, recent changes in pamac made it so pamac itself handles aur packages, not yaourt or pacaur, so pamac-pacaur is gone
On top of that, I added plex-media-server, updated pamac, chrome-dev, chromium-widevine, and pepper-flash. Have a great day and let us know about any issues you guys are having either on G+ or in the forum,
Hey guys! I know I haven't been very active lately as I've been trying to finish up some things in school before break. With that said, here's the rundown:
removed vivaldi, I'm going to continue to dedicate to chromium and maybe push out inox, ungoogled, or iridium next time one gets an update
Did add google-chrome-dev to the repo just for the heck of it
Updated green-recorder, palemoon, jgmenu, arc-firefox-theme(though this will probably be due for another update soon), obmenu-generator, openbox-arc-git, pacaur, pamac-pacaur, telegram, and chromium widevine. If you guys have any trouble with any of the applications, do not hesitate to let us know in G+ or on te forum.
Also, you may have noticed that tint2 got an update! Let us know what you think about it and also don't hesitate to share your rc's in the forum or on G+(I may have to go make a separate section on the forum).
-default file manager changed to thunar
(this should fix bugs with mounting, accessing drives)
-new gtk3 control panel
-new software install tool
-new openbox menu (right click menu)
(see advanced settings->obmenu generator for options)
-added numix icon themes
-new default wallpaper
-new default conky's
-new default lightdm theme
-fixed bugs in flash installer and codecs installer (added extra packages to be installed)
The Software Installation Tool and the Control Panel have been updated to use the gtk3 framework. Specifically, the software tool is a bit more robust, with icons and descriptions added to the interface.
Update now and check it out!
Hey guys, I pushed a repo update earlier so here's all it entails:
I renamed palemoon, telegram, and ghetto-skype so installation will be a little bit easier from the command line
I removed owlman(pacaur is fairly similar anyway, but much better)
And I added google-chrome(64-bit), Vivaldi(both arches), and some stuff to make browsing better for you(pipelight, pepper-flash, chromium-widevine)
I also updated jgmenu to run the necessary commands to get up and running right after you install it and pamac-pacaur to the actual version from the aur and not my hacked together version
Let me know how the update goes, and if you have any issues whatsoever, let us know in the forums or in google plus. Have a great weekend!
Hey everyone! I know I've been a little quiet lately, so here's kind of a summary of everything I've been doing over the past week:
OBR now has a blog( http://obrevenge.weebly.com/revengenews ) and a forum( obrevenge.freeforums.org ). There's a really terribly embedded version of the forum on the OBR website(currently working with some friends to make it look a little bit better), but for now, I'd recommend going straight to the forum. Also, in case I didn't announce this before, there are torrents of all OBR releases hosted on linux tracker. There are buttons on the download page that will take you to the torrent of the latest version.
Today I've updated palemoon-bin and spotify, as well as adding green-recorder, pacaur, and pamac-pacaur.
As far as skype, I've noticed a lot of you voted for the official skype but version 4.3.X has a lot of multilib dependencies, which now includes some stuff found exclusively in the aur
Skypeforlinux-alpha v1.17 is currently only 64-bit, so maybe when it comes out of alpha, I can add it
So we will be sticking with ghetto-skype for the foreseeable future.
Now some rules for the forum:
Please, if you have an application issue, try to run it from the command line so it will tell you(and eventually me when you report it) what exactly went wrong.
If you have an installation issue, please verify that the download itself or the usb/dvd you're using is not corrupt.
Please try to keep cursing and other inappropriate behaviors to a bare minimum, we want everything to be as professional as possible
Finally, if you can, help others. Jody and myself are not always available, as he works and I have school.
I didn't leave much to write about, but I added a news page to the website to help you get all your news about OBR quickly and easily. I also added links to the torrent downloads of our isos hosted on linuxtracker!
