Precise: 2nd Update
Mostly everything works as of today:
- Skype, Spotify and Dropbox work without any issues
- Flash and Sun Java still work
- LibreOffice works after initial glitches. Tested Writer, Calc & Impress and they work quite good and are rather fast. Actually I am starting to like LO more and more for every new release
- IBM Lotus Symphony still does not work under Precise. I am too lazy to file bugs on that…
- Software Manager now works and is A LOT faster than it was on 11.10 (but stil kind of slow)
- Almost everything on System Settings is now working. Great improvements in the usability section since my original testing in December
- Multiscreen support is super robust. But I can only had two screens (connected to my dock) and cannot then use my laptop screen (which might be because of my chip or driver limitations.
- Suspend and Hibernation just work®
There is just one thing that does not work for me this far:
- PDF Chain is not helping me on my daily splitting/merging with PDFs. This seems to be an issue between PDFChain and PDFtk, but I have not tested since last week. For now I’ve moved to PDFsam which is not as pretty, but it works.
And I would like to give my thought on HUD:
- Conceptually awesome! I use guake daily and having this for application menues is great
- Quite useful when you already know what you want: Save for almost any application is a no brainer. But on XChat Save Text.. is the right answer, and that’s what HUD gives you. Neat?
- Voice recognition is something I would like to tes as I miss to be able to talk to it and make it do what I want.
- A few times it is annoying when I press Alt unwillingly.
That’s all for now.
