I tried it out, but they still haven't fixed snap resizing -- compiz has never had this, but unity2d did.
Maybe I should stop complaining and try to fix it myself -- but KDE is just easier. <_<
Which problem do you have exactly?
You know how when you move a window, it'll snap to the edge of a nearby window, or the edge of a screen?
When you resize a window with metacity or kwin or openbox, it'll do the same thing -- snapping to the edge of nearby windows or the screen. This hasn't worked in compiz for a while, and always drove me nuts.
Maybe I really should should stop complaining and fix it -- the compiz developers aren't the type to turn down good pull requests... I just always swap and use a different WM. <_< (I *also* prefer the virtual desktop approach to viewports, but that's not a bug nor a dealbreaker for me. :))
Do new windows still insist on opening in the top-left corner?
Yes, but you can change the settings - for example to open new windows in the centre of the screen. Install "Compiz Settings Manager" (if you haven't already), then go to "Window Management" > "Place Windows" > "General" Tab > "Placement Mode" and change it to "Centred" or whatever there.
You have to install something else simply to have it remember positions when opening new windows? What an f-ing joke!
I agree, it is pretty poor and a constant source of annoyance. Its a shame Unity (and GNOME, Cinnamon) can't offer this functionality. KDE does it brilliantly, and I read somewhere a while back that even Mate was going to implement a "place new windows in centre of screen" option.
I'm surprised Dieter over on linuxadvocates hasn't weighed in on this, I should bug him to do a review (but then money doesn't grow on trees so maybe he's busy trying to find a job).
Everyone who downloads the torrent, please seed it ;)
seeding man i'm reading comments that it may not be the official is it correct?
You can download here http://releases.ubuntu.com/...
I'll be very angry with Joey if the ISOs are not the final & official ones. I trusted his link.
Threw both on my seedbox so maybe that will help
Thanks Micheal & Nathan,
Getting amazing speeds thanks to good Samaritans like you. I have 'un-throttled' my uploading for today.
As am I :D
There are a lot of seeders but it's still chuggin along
Seeding and leeching started
And disable your upload throttling if you have it! At least for today! :)
Since I'm on a 100Mb/s UPstream connection, I've downloaded all 6 images and am seeding them myself. If you're in a similar situation (e.g. at work), please do the same! :)
Only if you're allowed to do it at work though :/
How can they seed if they have to install the system...
Sometimes you can 'update' to the new version from the LiveUSB instead of 'upgrade' (fresh install).
I did this for 13.10 when I was on 13.04. I will try it for 14.04 now.
Then your programs & their files are intact. That is you can seed by starting your Transmission.
14.04 does not seem released yet
it has been released its iso image is available on ubuntu official site
It's out and live here:releases.ubuntu.com/14.04/
The website is just a little behind.
Please download using the .torrent and help your fellow Ubuntians by seeding, un-throttled, for as long as possible! :)
Since I'm on a 100Mb/s UPstream connection, I've downloaded all 6 images and am seeding them myself. Hopefully that'll help. :)
They just put it there first and then they update the official site :) If you see the date it clearly says 17-Apr-2014 14:59 ( http://releases.ubuntu.com/... )
On Freenode#ubuntu!isitoutyet<ubottu> No woprandi, it's not out yet. It's due out some time on the 17th :)
This is incorrect, 14.04 is not officially released yet.
And to broadcast a warning from #ubuntu-release-party, please stop touching the servers.
It is : https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Tru...
It isn't: http://www.ubuntu.com/downl...
Just because of LIM I might give unity another chance.
Thank you for the download! I can not wait to try this!
Checking for a new Ubuntu releaseNo new release found
Whoops, yes you are correct. Although until there is an actual update pushed it will make no difference.
Correct. Although, until it actually finds something it won't make any difference. When it does you can easily repeat with sudo, it just saves having to keep typing out the root password each time you try it.
"It’s no secret that Ubuntu’s Unity interface has its share of critics, but since its introduction as default desktop back in 2011, it has, for the most part, been welcomed by the vast majority of users."
This is like saying the vast majority of McDonald's customers like their hamburgers. Well, yeah. People who dislike McDonald's go to Burger King.
Are there actually stats on how many Ubuntu users stick with Unity?
My thoughts exactly, Rodalpho... :)
I also question the quoted claim. To "welcome" Unity is one response; "accept reluctantly" is another; and swapping desktops, or even distro is yet another. I used Unity for a few years back when it released, but I don't think I ever really "welcomed" the change -- I just dealt with it until its flaws wore through my patience.
I dislike Unity personally, and switched to XFCE after a week (and now cinnamon). I don't blame Ubuntu for pushing Unity; the beauty of linux is its infinite configurability. Don't like Unity? Use something else.
I wish they spent all that dev time on something that isn't an abomination to all right-thinking men, but such is life.
Anyway, I just found that statement questionable.
Unity is awesome and with 14.04 it is better than ever.
Which does not actually answer their question...
I also wondered how he came to that conclusion. Is it based on actual statistical data? I don't think so.
"As Ubuntu journeys towards its convergent Shangri-La, this release gives us a final pit stop with the version of Ubuntu we’ve all come to know and loathe/love.
The codename for the release is apt because, more than ever, we’re all going to need to put trust in Canonical and the army of Ubuntu developers as the core components of the desktop undergo a revolutionary change…"
You should give readers another post about what some of those revolutionary changes that are being discussed.
"...revolutionary change." LOLIt sounds like the fan-boy lost track of reality.
The "revolutionary" changes are to try to copy the Motorola Atrix.
bare bones no firefox gives it a more open sourced thing to it ..
"no firefox gives it a more open sourced thing to it" - lol, such nonsense...
