Kuki 3.0 Pre Release 1.7 is out and can be downloaded from our download page. This version is based on the recently released Ubuntu 9.04 so it has the most recent versions of applications. Kuki 3.0 Pre Release 1.7 ships with a new custom kernel and the latest XFCE 4.6.0 desktop.
Firefox for web browsing
Pidgin for instant messaging/chat
Audacious music player
Mplayer movie viewer
Zim for organizing thoughts and note taking
Album Shaper for digital photos
Changes since Pre Release 1.6:
Volume keys have been fixed
Shutdown/Reboot has been fixed
Further reduction from unneeded dependencies
New window manager and icon themes
Numerous under the hood tweaks
Because of the changes, there isn’t the ability to update from 1.6 to 1.7. You will need to do a fresh install. (LiveCD user id is kuki, leave the password blank)
Xorg.conf does it’s best to auto detect keyboard, mouse, video, etc. It does so correctly on the Acer Aspire One, however, it does not provide the best settings for video. A different xorg.conf is provided that can be user installed that gives much better video performance, but will make it so the volume keys no longer function. That is the unfortunate trade off (although we are still working on a solution for this). If you want to use the enhanced xorg.conf, open a terminal and type sudo /usr/local/kuki/cfgKuki-xorg and a script will backup the original and copy the new one for you.
The Kuki team would like to thank every one for there help and support in getting this release out of the oven!
