That’s great work Raul, just downloading to try in a VM.
An official image would probably require not using oibaf, system76 and a third party kernel however.
So atm I can’t boot it on virtualbox, either in normal live or nvidia legacy. It goes into plymouth showing the ubuntu animation, then on to a black screen.
I’m no trying to achieve an official image, i made this just for fun…
Try again, the last ISO has another kernel, for better compatibility.
Wow, great work Raul! The website is just gorgeus!
Are you guys aware of the UmixOS project? Someone is already rolling a Unity7 ubuntu derivative: https://medium.com/@teejeetech/introducing-umix-os-unity-remix-7cbd96d97f4b . I just found it today while googling “Ubuntu Unity Remix”. I think we should contact the author and join forces for future releases.
Any news about dale-f-beaudoin? Hope he’s fine… I’m a bit concerned about this silence…
Thanks for the support!
The Umix is a pay distro, this is not my purpose with the Unity XP, but would be great to exchange some experiences with Teejee.
Raul’s ISO is really good in general. Of course an official flavour would need to stick to official sources, but putting that aside the installer works well (like unity era installer) so does the live session.
I reckon it’s a good starting point for an official image.
How we do move forward to make it official? Martin Wimpress was initially interested in the project, now he’s head of ubuntu desktop team, maybe he can do something to help the project now.
I checked the UMIX page linked above and the author says it is now free to download. Unfortunately, the page hasn’t been updated in awhile and the links are all broken.
