First, minimal test ISO is uploaded for the August stable ISO release.
Changes for this ISO that need testing are the move to Pipewire as the default sound backend (testing both in Live mode & the option in Calamares to use Pipewire).
Next one is the option to use only mouse or touchpad for installing, please test using the virtualkeyboard in the User module.
Feedback would be appreciated for the new layout of Calamares.
As always, early test ISOs are minimal, very few apps, just a web-browser, file manager, text editor, GUI package manager. The non-free Nvidia drivers are included since they are a big part of what needs testing.
Plan is to have Frameworks 5.96.0, KDE Applications 22.07.90, Plasma 5.25.4 and Linux 5.18.x on the final ISO.
The ISO is using packages from the build repo, but that repo is not enabled, so if you decide to install, make sure to add the build repo to your pacman.conf.
Debug packages for Calamares are part of all ISOs, run Calamares with gdb if you encounter errors.
provide the installation log, if you encounter any issue at all
You can start Calamares from the Welcome app, or run it with:
sudo calamares -d
The install log will be created in the home directory of the Live user, see
~/installation.log. It is available after the install in the target system in
If run from cli, make sure to pastebin the full output, since no installation.log will be copied then, though that log is more complete.
On this ISO you will find:
KDE Applications 22.04.3
Calamares 3.3 Beta
Octopi 0.13.0 with sysinfo & cachecleaner tool
- Virtualbox with a Wayland session needs to set screensize in systemsettings
- The bottom progress-bar in Calamares reacts to mouse clicks & opens a virtualkeyboard (narrow)
