-Change in direction. I wanted to give some peace and stability to our users and deal with a few visual bugs that come with some of the bleeding edge repos. So we pulled back. No more Ricotz Testing (though I still love xorg testing, so it remains).
-GIMP 2.7.5 is unresolvable on Mint12 as of now so I changed repositories and fixed our version at the compatible 2.7.4, not the best but it is what we have to work with for now as 2.7.5 is being compiled against 12.04.. which is a mess at the moment.
-Removed Microsolve as it is no longer needed.
FTP ISSUE FIXED
Maint Release is out for the new micro version oddity with Gimp-2.7.5 Links are Updated :) There is no forcing so this should resolve and update on it's own once the version oddities are corrected in the coming weeks.
This is the official release post for the Argosianmint 12 Configuration script for FLOSS Artists.
Terminal Commands Below
- wget http://www.ideafactories.com/argos/argosianmint12-1.4-amd64.sh
- chmod +x argosianmint12-1.4-amd64.sh
We are in 1.0. It was quite the production. Thank you all for sticking with me during this. The result is about a 2 hour long script that will configure the desktop for your Artistic Needs. Be patient with this process, this is a very large monolithic process and it needs to be baby sat. You will need to enter your super user password as it goes along.
The following are the only thing it does not do for you:
- configure Wacom Tablets (the script will never do this, I have other plans for this need)
- install Proprietary Driver (future looking feature to add in)
- Set your Theme (Hey, we all have likes/dislikes so I leave this to you)
I will be beginning the process of developing a GUI configurator for Wacom Tablets under MATE soon. These already exist for GNOM3/Cinnamon and KDE and used to exist for GNOME2. Somewhere in all the open source code is probably all I need and just a little work to get it going under MATE.
Am I done? No, I will maintain the script and work towards additional functionality. We use so many unstable sources here that as time moves on the script will need to be updated to handle the changing situation. I will continue support of this script towards that end. In addition I would like to add Graphics Card auto-detection and installation to the script but wanted to get a "stable" working script out and in use.
If you like my script and want to donate use button on the right.
