RELEASE 22.12.2020

Some important changes compared to the latest ISO + a few usual updates:

      • In the latest ISO Wayland (the desktop part of the operating system) was forced to be in use over Xorg (another, more robust and more tested). We realized that Wayland, although faster than Xorg (your computer will be faster with Wayland) is buggy. Several applications will not even open. So, we reverted back to Xorg.

        For the users who installed the latest ISOs and the system does not work properly, we recommend to move back to Xorg. It is very simple: go to Computer/etc/gdm and look for a file called custom.conf. If it is there, right click and Edit as Administrator. If it is not, create one by opening the gdm folder as administrator. If the file exist, make sure that the line WaylandEnable=false does not have a # in front of it. If it does, delete the #. Save the file, and reboot. That’s all. If you do not have the file, create one with the same name, and inside it paste these, save and then reboot:

        # GDM configuration storage[daemon]AutomaticLoginEnable=True# Uncomment the line below to force the login screen to use XorgWaylandEnable=false[security][xdmcp][chooser][debug]# Uncomment the line below to turn on debugging#Enable=true

      •  We added the package cups for printers. If you have a printer, you should install it as it is meant to allow for more printers to work with Linux.
      • We removed 2 Firefox Addons: HTTPS Everywhere (since Firefox has such a feature integrated into it – go to preferences -> privacy and security and enable HTTPS Only Mode in All Windows). Second, we removed the DAT extension since it is an outdated Addon that does not work with the new Hyper protocol. We look forward to add back the integration with the Hyper Protocol (the successor of the DAT protocol) when it will become available for Firefox.
      •  We improved Calamares a bit, in terms of design, to be more in line with TROMjaro. Calamares is the program that installs TROMjaro.

      Side note: on the first boot after the install, the Unite extension doesn’t load and so it is the case for Firefox’s settings. Either reboot the computer or refresh the desktop by pressing Alt + F2, write “r”, press enter. Or close Firefox and open it again. We do not know what causes this bug but it is easily fixable by simply restarting the computer, desktop, or Firefox. And it will work after that.
