PinguyOS 12.04 LTS Released

Here is the final release of Pinguy OS 12.04 LTS. As you may have noticed, we have had a website redesign to reflect this great new release. We have fully embraced GNOME Shell here and wanted a modern, updated site to go with the new look of the desktop.

In this release we have:

  • Linux Kernel 3.2.0-25
  • GNOME 3.4.1
  • Wine 1.5.6
  • Skype 4.0
  • TeamViewer 7
  • XBMC-PVR 11.0 Eden
  • GNOME Shell Extension Updater
  • Everything else that was present in the previous Beta release.

The GDM login is now themed to match the desktop. The distro comes with two menus; Cardapio (Default) but also includes the Axe menu that is disabled.

Known Issues:

  • Not working with Btrfs.
  • Encrypting “Home” during install doesn’t work. Can be done once installed with a 3rd party app.
  • The current build of VLC is a bit buggy. Can crash the desktop session. I would wait for an update or downgrade the release if you experience any problems. For now, the better alternative would be to use MPlayer as the default video player until VLC gets patched.
