New Debian-based Classic Gnome Desktop OS

I still love my Ubuntu 12.04 Classic, but for Classic Gnome lovers and Desktop users everywhere it is worth giving SolusOS a test run in a spare part of your hard drive.

SolusOS is reviewed here:

I have tried it and it is very impressive. It is Debian based and, like Mint, has all the multimedia etc included.

Ikey Doherty of SolusOS comments:

"We'll be using Gnome 3 classic mode with a lot of modifications. It will look and act exactly the same as our Gnome 2 setup, requiring no hardware acceleration. I've begun porting the older panel/applet libraries to use GTK3 and D-BUS meaning we won't lose any of the functionality previously found.

Long story short, you'll be using the latest system and you won't be able to tell the difference".

SolusOS also has a First Run wizard with firewall and graphics driver options.

I only had one problem and that was with flash crashing.

There is a simple solution however.

In terminal:


sudo rm /etc/adobe/mms.cfg
