The 14.04.2 LTS Kernel, based on 14.10, will be coming out soon. Will it be rolled into LL 2.2?


LL 2.2 will rock whichever kernel is current at release time, around 3.13.0-24. If you require a newer kernel for unsupported hardware, you can always pick one from the LL repo.

More details will be released at the time, safe to say for now that some of the enhancements you already have eg. Lite Cleaner etc

That is what I was trying to find out. I may already have 2.2 except for the number.  8)  When the details are released I can decide if I need to install 2.2.

What are the enhancements in 2.2 over the current version and are they worth doing a reinstall for once it is released, or is it simply enhancements to the installer (Ubiquity)?

Thanks for asking again, Rob. That was what I wanted to know.  :D


Also, what is the change in the  installer (Ubiquity)? I did not think the installer could get any easier.

Hello!

I seem to be missing something here somewhere, so I'll ask:

What are the enhancements in 2.2 over the current version and are they worth doing a reinstall for once it is released, or is it simply enhancements to the installer (Ubiquity)?

@Coastie, there will always be differences between releases. As has been mentioned many times in the past, there is no upgrade path for Linux Lite. Will there be one in the future? I don't know yet. I would like to reiterate, that if you have a working, stable operating system there is no compelling reason to upgrade. Now that we have our own repo, it will be easier in the future to create a package that upgrades you, eg. sudo apt-get install lite-upgrade (or similar).Cheers.

Thanks, Valtam. I'll download 2.2 when available to a DVD and try it out to see if there is any need to upgrade to it. Also, I'll watch for reviews to see if the reviewer sees anything I missed.  8)

Re. do I need to upgrade comments. If it ain't broke... :)
I ran 1.0.4 for nearly a year before switching to 2.0.

Let me rephrase my question. If I have installed Lite Cleaner, Lite Fix, Linux Lite Welcome, etc. as they have become available, and daily updated my system, is there anything different in Linux Lite 2.2 from what I have now with Linux Lite 2.0?  :-\

That's a good idea but I probably have 150-200 bookmarks.  It'll take a LONG time to do it that way but I guess there's no other way for now.  I'll be glad when there's a Mozbackup version that works in Linux.

Backing up bookmarks is easy.  Two ways to do it depending on what you like.  Will show difference by using two different scenarios.  (NOTE:  You should be able to do this from/between Windows and Linux without issue.  Backup menu in Firefox on Windows may be slightly different from what is described below but should work the same.)

Scenario #1:
You have two computers and don't necessarily want both to have exactly the same bookmarks.  Machine #1 has bookmarks 1 thru 10;  Machine two has bookmarks 11-20.  You decide that you want Machine #1 to stay as it is, but you want to add the bookmarks from Machine #1 to Machine #2 so it has all of the bookmarks from both.

In Firefox on Machine #1, go to Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks -> Import and Backup -> Export Bookmarks to HTML, then save the .html file to a USB stick.



In Firefox on Machine #2, go to Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks -> Import and Backup -> Import Bookmarks from HTML, then pick the .html file from the USB stick for importing.  I can't remember exactly, but think it will produce a folder like "Imported Bookmarks" under your main Bookmarks folder to add those new bookmarks to what is already there.




Scenario #2:
You want the same exact set of bookmarks on all computers.  Machine #1 has the bookmarks that you want to copy to all other machines.

In Firefox on Machine #1, go to Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks -> Import and Backup -> Backup, then save the .json file to a USB stick.



In Firefox on Machine #2, go to Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks -> Import and Backup -> Restore -> Choose File, then navigate to the .json file on the USB stick.  This option will replace the bookmarks that are currently on Machine #2 with the ones that are on Machine #1.

Hi Dave,

Linux Lite is always based on Ubuntu LTS releases. So the next LL release, LL 2.2, will also be be be based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Does that make sense?

~Scott

Hi Scott,

Thanks, now it's clear 2.x is based Ubuntu 14.04

Having spent many hours on installing programs, configuration, network set-up, share mapping PC's/NAS etc. ect.
Not sure I relish the idea of starting from scratch on 3 PC's...
