ROSA releases a lightweight version of ROSA Desktop Fresh R1

Post by NicCo »

SOURCE > http://forum.rosalab.ru/en/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2156

ROSA company is glad to announce a further expansion of ROSA Desktop Fresh R1 distribution series — an update of its distribution based on lightweight desktop environment, LXDE.
This distribution uses the same code base as recently released ROSA Desktop Fresh R1. The main difference of LXDE-based edition is a tendency to be minimalistic while preserving flexibility and usability. The new version includes only really necessary software and is built with the "the easier - the faster" principle in mind: high work speed is achieved at the expense of simple interface and absence of “wonderful” effects. The release is based on the time-proved GTK+2 framework, though some components are using the latest developments from GTK+3/GNOME3. As a result, the system is rather conservative but provides a set of modern features.
The new ROSA distribution differs from its analogues by a convenient system control center which can be launched from the system menu or by typing “lxde-control-center“ command. By means of this control center one can adjust different system settings:

  • kernel-nrj-laptop-3.8.12

Hi, I found info about alternative version for lxde-control-center, which name is lxde-ctrl-center: http://code.google.com/p/lxde-ctrl-center
Will you build RPM packages for lxde-ctrl-center and beesu? I did not find them in repo.
I tested, I downloaded lxde-ctrl-center-0.0.9.tar.gz and this program works without installlation, but I need beesu.

There's beesu into magos 2012 repository:
it should be compatible with ROSA 2012.1
