Bauer-Puntu 13.10LO (Live Only) is Now Available!

I have some good news and bad news for Bauer-Puntu users out there. The good news is that I've finally finished Bauer-Puntu 13.10. The bad news is that there is a bug in Relinux that breaks the Ubiquity installer and therefore you cannot install this version of Bauer-Puntu to your hard drive. That's why I'm calling this version Bauer-Puntu 13.10LO (Live Only).

That is good news if you only use Bauer-Puntu on a Live DVD or a Live USB stick for doing stuff like changing administrator passwords in Windows, doing offline maintenance on machines protected with Truecrypt full disk encryption, or doing an offline virus scan on an infected Windows system with ClamTK.

If you like to use Bauer-Puntu as your primary operating system, you will just have to use Bauer-Puntu 13.04 for now, and run sudo apt-get dist-upgrade to upgrade it from 13.04 to 13.10. Of course, you may loose some of my customizations, but it will at least be running Xubuntu 13.10.

So what's new in 13.10LO? Not too much. I did create a new Plymouth splash screen though with support for LUKS encryption. If you only want that, I've made it available on Gnome-Look.org. I also replaced Transmission Bittorrent client with Deluge, and I kept Firefox as the default browser and stopped putting Chromium on because of the NSA's relationship with Google. I also added a couple of programs to help with privacy better in Firefox, and set Firefox to never remember history by default.

Of course the good stuff to protect you from the NSA is still installed. Tor Browser Bundle, Truecrypt, Enigmail for Thunderbird, and OTR for Pidgin are still there.

Here's a list of what's installed:
