Ubuntu GNOME

Last Update: 2018-03-24 02:03 UTC


Ubuntu GNOME (formerly Ubuntu GNOME Remix) is an official flavor of Ubuntu, featuring the GNOME desktop environment. It is intended as a mostly pure GNOME desktop experience built from the Ubuntu repositories. As of mid-2017, the Ubuntu GNOME project no longer releases new versions. The main Ubuntu flavour defaults to using the GNOME desktop. Older Ubuntu GNOME releases are still maintained.

Krita with Tablet (UGEE) not working:
cursor disappears over tools
also get confused about mouse vs tablet position,
(ie has two cursor or none at all sometimes).

Went back to 16.04 Ubuntu GNOME:
Now works perfectly (a perfect 10)

So far so good. No driver issues, no buggy processes, good Gnome experience. The only thing is that startup logo is not good looking. But after you see the desktop, everything is perfect.

Perfectly stable on 3 PCs, no crashes. The desktop design is pleasant, and it runs much better than Unity. Boots quickly on old hardware. Apt is much quicker than older Ubuntu releases.

And my wife likes it too.
