I am remastering the UNEX 4.0 ISO as we speak!

UNEX 4.0 is the latest in the UNEX series. UNEX 4.0 is a remaster of Ubuntu 11.10.

UNEX 4.0 includes:

  • all software and security updates as of October 26, 2011
  • all multimedia codecs from ubuntu-restricted-extras
  • Google Chrome
  • GIMP
  • Skype
  • Pidgin
  • Broadcom wifi support
UNEX 4.0 also includes the Unity 2D interface for those whose video hardware does not support Unity 3D out of the box.
A release announcement will come later today. Stay tuned!

UNEX 3.0 32-bit is available!

UNEX 3.0 is based on Ubuntu 11.04. It includes multimedia codecs (except for libdvdcss2 and w32codecs) and all software and security updates as of August 18, 2011.

UNEX 3.0 includes Google Chrome, Mozilla Thunderbird (replaces Evolution), and Rhythmbox (replaces Banshee).

I can personally verify that the iPod Touch 4G will work on here. I personally tested the OS with my iPod Touch 4G, and I was able to play my iPod library from Rhythmbox. In addition, syncing work as well.

Work will soon begin on a 64-bit version.

I have an HP Mini 110 1116NR netbook. When I first install Ubuntu Netbook Remix on there, bluetooth works out of the box, but wifi doesn’t. If I enable and activate the Broadcom STA wifi drivers from the Karmic repository, wifi works upon reboot, but bluetooth no longer works. However, I have found a way to get the wifi working and keep the bluetooth working as well! All you have to do is download the Lucid Lynx version of the bcmwl-kernel-source package which is available here. Once you get connected to the internet (try to connect via ethernet), double-click on the package you downloaded and allow it to download and install all dependencies and then allow it to install. Reboot, and your wifi will now work, and your bluetooth should still work!
