 Post subject: Zenwalk Gnome 5.2
PostPosted: Sun Aug 24, 2008 7:46 pm 

Zenwalk Gnome 5.2 is now available!

Based on Zenwalk current, it features the latest stable Gnome 2.22.3 Desktop, with a familiar Zenwalk Desktop layout and beautiful Zenwalk artwork. Included in this release, are Linux kernel 2.6.25.4, the latest X.Org 7.3 suite of X servers and the next generation of the Netpkg package manager.

Zenwalk Gnome follows the "one app per task" Zenwalk philosophy and the Gnome Desktop comes with all default applications known to Zenwalk users: iceweasel and icedove for all your browsing and email needs, wicd for easy connecting to wireless networks, brasero for burning CD/DVD discs, abiword and gnumeric for your office needs, the GIMP for editing graphics files and photos, gtkam for managing your digital camera and gmusicbrowser for handling huge collections of music. Totem (using the xine backend), with its clean interface, is the multimedia player of choice, you can even find, browse and view youtube videos with it, even if you don't have flash installed! Of course a propriatery flash package which works with iceweasel is included in the installation if the user decides to accept the adobe flash licence.

As usual, Zenwalk Gnome provides a complete programming environment for coders. Geany provides a fast and light IDE for developing code in a great number of different languages.

The complete collection of Zenwalk system tools is present in Zenwalk Gnome. The Zenpanel provides a centralized place for all system administration, such as user creation/modification, network settings, localization, kernel module configuration etc. All user settings can be easily reached from the Gnome Control Center, only a click away in the main Gnome panel.

The Zenwalk Gnome 5.2 iso weighs 597.7MB and can be downloaded from the following locations:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/dis ... me-5.2.iso
http://pnboy.pinguix.com/gapan/zengnome ... me-5.2.iso

Have fun!

Congratulations to all GNOME-lovers out there! Personally, I am waiting for KDE-edition and ports of netpkg and ZenPanel to QT4, if that would ever happen. Until then (and until KDE4 gets usable on itself and all the major apps are ported to QT4) I'd switch to GNOME edition, too.

Zenwalk's non-standard Gnome is very ideal for those who like Gnome, but want to break away to something different without having to use a completely different desktop environment. I think the developers have done a fantastic job.

Gnome lovers should try something more Zen and see how it goes.

Gapan,

Is there any reason, for making Totem as default player in Gnome edition? I see G-Mplayer is much good than this totem. What ya say?

Totem is part of gnome ... so for me it should be the default player :-X
Personally I never observed some trouble with totem.

With the usability and UI conerned, i feel G-Mplayer or atleast SmPlayer is much better than Totem. Coz by default on ubuntu u get totem, so on that when u use G-Mplayer or SMPlayer there, u feel alot of difference.

I personally prefer G-Mplayer myself, but Totem is a satisfactory alternative.

I'd really like to see the program "cheese" included in the next one that comes out. I added it via source, its a nice webcam app.
