RELEASE 07.07.2020

A few changes and a few updates. Here are the changes:

      • We removed the Firefox ‘recommended extensions‘ from the Addons page, since Firefox will often recommend trade-based extensions. For current users: go to a new Firefox tab and write ‘about:config‘. Press enter. Then click ‘accept the risks and continue‘. In the search box search for ‘extensions.htmlaboutaddons.recommendations.enabled‘ and disable it by toggling the disable button like you see bellow.
        .

  •  We replaced some screenshots for the TROMjaro Installer to reflect our latest changes to TROMjaro.
  • We removed the extension “Search by Image” from Firefox, since it was using Google, Bing and other trade-based services. Yes, using our version of Firefox, users would have been protected from trading their data/attention to these entities, but it would be better for us to find a trade-free alternative. This extension allows you to reverse-search for an image, which is useful, but maybe not that essential. In any case, as soon as we will find a trade-free alternative, we will add it to TROMjaro.
  • We enabled by default a dark theme for the great qTox messenger that TROMjaro comes pre-installed with. The theme matches the rest of the OS.
  • Finally, we enabled for the installation of flatpaks directly from our APPS library. This is really great since it opens up more apps for us to recommend. Now users can very easily install AUR, from Repositories, or Flatpaks directly from our APPS library. And you can’t tell the difference since the process is all the same and super simple. Of course, users can also install AppImages in TROMjaro. So, with Repositories, AUR, Flatpaks and AppImages, pretty much any Linux application can be installed on TROMjaro from our APPS library. Current users must install ‘web-installer-url-handler‘ to enable it. After enabling it, test it with this VLC package. Firefox will ask you to open with the ‘Web Installer‘. You can select to make it open with it by default, then click ‘remember my choice‘. It should work.
That’s all for now. We are trying to keep TROMjaro the same. Simple. No nonsense. Trade-Free.
