UbuntuDDE Remix 20.10 Groovy Beta Release Note

UbuntuDDE Remix Groovy Beta

Hi folks, It was an outstanding 6 month for us, the UbuntuDDE Team, as we had so much love and support from people all over the world. After the 20.04 release, we are amazed by the love and support of hundreds of people across the world. We received a huge download of around 250K+ so far. All thanks to the huge and strong community of Ubuntu, Debian, Deepin, and the entire Linux ecosystem as this wouldn’t be possible without you.

I would like to thank everyone in the UbuntuDDE Remix team, the community, bug hunters, patrons, donors, and everyone who directly and indirectly supported us and the project.

Today, I’d like to announce our next milestone ie. UbuntuDDE Remix 20.10 Beta (Groovy Gorilla). Its hard to explain all the goodies brought to 20.10 right now for the beta release. But as most of you know, 20.10 will be having the latest and most beautiful desktop experience with the new v20 DDE (Deepin Desktop Environment).

You can grab the image from our Download page (Only for Testing and Development Purpose) and if you like the project and want to support financially, you can head to our Donate page.

Project Lead, UbuntuDDE Remix

  1. I was looking forward to this new version that includes Deepin Desktop 20, thanks.
    Now we only need the user who posts about their concern about sharing their information with the Chinese Communist Party and the release will be complete, of course nobody is concerned about sharing all their information with Facebook, Google, NSA, etc.

    1. Yes.
      Try to issue command in terminal:
      sudo your_preferred_editor /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades for example
      sudo vim /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades or sudo nano /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades or sudo gedit /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades or sudo kate /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades

      Then modify the following string: Prompt=lts to Prompt=normal

      Then issue next command in terminal: sudo do-release-upgrade -d

      Then proceed to instructions giving you on terminal.

      For the update procedure Ubuntu update manager will disable all third party repositories and PPA’s which you might have for your Ubuntu installation/redaction. After upgrade you can try to re-enable them if they are still met 20.10 (after 20.04) requirements, elsewhere try to double check if your third party repository or PPA from launchpad are 100% compatible with Ubuntu 20.10 version after upgrade procedure complete, you reboot and then check if you might want to enable third parties.

  2. If someone has problems with the Unattended Upgrades application which remains blocked when we try to restart or shut down the system, uninstall it (sudo apt remove unattended-upgrades) and problem solved.

  3. I want Deepin Desktop 20and also LTS. will UbuntuDDE 20.10 be LTS? If no then when can we expect UbuntuDDE with Deepin Desktop 20 LTS?

  4. A few days ago I found UbuntuDDE, it’s something very different …. I’ve been looking for a distro that I like for more than two months, changing them every two-three days (I didn’t like any of them) until I found this UBUNTUDDE. Congratulations to the team that made this distro, it’s great … I like it ….

    1. Agree completely with you. This is the most polished distro using DDE I have found. For the last 3-4 months I have distro hopping looking for something that worked well with DDE.

    I think I’ve found my Linux distro of choice now, great work !

    One question, is it possible to change the order of applications in the “start” menu or permanently change the view to All Categories, it’s currently a bit jumbled up.
