Hello Linux Geeksters. Kwheezy is a Debian Wheezy derivates, optimized to use the KDE desktop environment. KWheezy 1.4 has been recently released, bringing features and improvements.
From the official changelog:
- Fix for entering accents in LibreOffice (disable iBus by default).
- Firefox and Thunderbird 24 ESR are now default.
- Cdrtools (original and best) replaces wodim and genisoimage as default Burning/ISO tools.
- Kopete and Linphone replace Jitsi as default XMPP chat and video calling.
- Kwheezy Autostart Chooser has addition choices, including iBus.
- Make KGet and Kopete “Always Visible” in system tray by default.
- Allow kwheezy-livecd package to be uninstalled without removing Kwheezy icon.
- Disable transitions (effects) in KScreenSaver’s “Slide Show”, making it usable.
Upgrading from KWheezy 1.3 to KWheezy 1.4 can be done from the terminal, by using the apt package manager:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
However, since some packages cannot be updated or installed by the terminal method, you have to backup your existing profiles and use the Kwheezy Profiler to restore Kwheezy Defaults after the update.
