VirtualBox Image: Community-TDE-PClinuxOS-16.06.18.ova « on: 17 juni 2018 » by community member Old-present_arms
I'm happy to announce the new arrival of the Trinity ISO for real machines and an OVA for those that want to slap it in to a VB session. https://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,146241.msg1248767.html#msg1248767
So what did I do this time, well, fixed the Files issue, made the theme flow from boot to desktop, new launcher menu and some additions to the OS, we have now Kdenlive for those budding video editors, we have darktable for the photography, full Libre Office is there also for those that need to do office type work. Gimp is preinstalled with all the plugins i could muster, The kernel is the latest (at time of writing and if I've released an ISO be sure to be a newer one soon lol) at 4.16.14, the terminal now has neofetch for a little info when you launch. on the audio side yes I installed Pulse Audio, and it seems to be working fine those that hate/don't need you can remove it in the usual PCLinuxOS way of course, I got rid of the phantom grub entries that plagued the last couple of installs also. The OVA is litterally a fresh install of the ISO on a 15Gig virtual drive, 1 cpu and 256Meg of ram, of course after importing you can change these settings to what suits your particular taste, i've tested it as low as 96MB and as much as 5 gig of ram with 2 logical cores and all went swimmingly.
I hope you enjoy this release and as always you can leave comments, fais etc in the comments below
http://trinity.mypclinuxos.com/isos/community-TDE-PCLinuxOS-16.06.18.iso at 2.1Gb is the place for the ISO and http://trinity.mypclinuxos.com/VirtualBox_Images/Community-TDE-PClinuxOS-16.06.18.ova at 2.9GB for the Virtual Box and VMWare image. note I made an errata for the VMware install and how to install http://trinity.mypclinuxos.com/vminstructions.php there.
Instructions for Installing in a Virtual machine
If you don't have Virtual Box installed, you can download it through your package manager or if you are reading this from a Windows machine, yopu can download it from the Oracle web site
Once installed open up Virtualbox and once loaded go to File>>Import Appliance... and go to where you downloaded the OVA file and click next and follow the instructions, once the OS is installed you will see on the left the Trinity Linux OS, simply click start or double click the Trinity entry and Trinity on PClinuxOS will boot.
The instructions for installing on VMWare Player are similar to those found on Virtual Box
Open VMware Player and go to file >> open and choose the OVA file, follow any instructions, once installed click the Trinity PclinuxOS icon and click Start
**NOTE FOR VMWARE PLAYER**
You may see a couple of messages, one is that there is an attached image that can't be got, click the don't attach again.
Also, when booting you might see X server crash with 2 messages, just click OK to these 2 and the OS will run as intended
It is recommended that you boot this virtual machine twice, let it boot to the desktop then reboot, this will allow any drivers etc to load properly
Additional programs are available from our Synaptic Software Manager after installation to your computer. In additon to the full TDE version there is also a MiniMe version with just the desktop and void of extra applications for those advanced users who wish to trick out their desktop with only the applications they want to install and use.
