ISO upgraded to version 2017-01-22, below information and download links updated
XenialDog (Ubuntu 16.04 ‘Xenial Xerus’ LTS, 32-bit)
(Ubuntu minimal “live”)
Very similar to DebianDog, but with the difference that it’s Ubuntu based.
Full access to Ubuntu repositories by using apt-get (from terminal) or from Synaptic Package Manager (GUI)
Openbox is the main window-manager, the GUI setup is very much like DebianDog Jessie 64-bit
Differences compared to DebianDog:
- Different applications, some are not included and some others added.
- Choices of window-manager are: Openbox and Jwm , see for specifications below
root with password root
puppy with password puppy
Built from an absolute minimal Ubuntu full install (using mini.iso).
Choice of Boot Methods: porteus-boot and casper-boot , see options Here
Default WM - OpenBox (and option for Jwm, see below)
(with different choice of Desktop modes: tint2 icon-panel, cairo-dock or rox-pinboard icons, to choose, run ‘Desktop Manager’ from Menu)
Tint2 bottom panel or cairo-dock. (replaced wbar (from previous (32-bit) version) with a minimal cairo-dock
Default File Manager - pcmanfm with option to use rox.
Default Internet Browser - Firefox.
Menu provided by Obmenu-generator (perl script)
Added: Quick-Remaster tool
Option to switch to JWM (Menu > System > Start Jwm)
Full LZ4 squashfs support (compression and loading modules)
Systemd is enabled by default, to use upstart (the older Ubuntu initscripts), do in terminal:
apt-get update # might be required apt-get install upstart-sysv
The Iso size became quite big mainly because:
- Big size of Ubuntu kernel 4.4.0-59-generic (in /lib/modules)
- Package ‘linux-firmware’ installed (has most firmware)
- Python and Perl installed
