    I've decided to disable forum registration permanently. My apologies to any valid registrants, but by far the vast majority of registrations are spammers and I simply don't have the time to manually vet every email address only to find the one or two valid registrants out of a hundred or more registrations. Sourceforge does not allow this site to access external URLs for the purpose of automatic filtering which has made this task nearly impossible to perform manually.

    Those who are already registered will remain so. I will not be deleting existing accounts. If anyone else wants to register on this forum, please contact me by email or via the Bluestar Linux Facebook page - if I know you're actually a person I'd be happy to manually register you here.

    Otherwise, I will now provide support via the Bluestar Linux Facebook page - the link is posted at the top of this page. Again, my sincerest apologies to anyone who is inconvenienced by this change in policy.

    Cheers

    Site registration has been temporarily suspended until I can work through the backlog. Unfortunately, sourceforge doesn't allow anti-spam packages to access external URLs, so I have to manually vet each and every member email address, and this takes a huge amount of time.

    The fact is that only 1 out of every 30 or 40 registrations are valid, so it amounts to a colossal waste of my time. My apologies to those who are valid registrations. In the mean time, you can visit the Bluestar Linux Facebook page if you have questions or need support.

    Cheers

    xx Some Changes
    May 05, 2016, 07:32:47 PM by admin
    The directory structure at the sourceforge site has changed to reflect the deprecation of plasma4 releases. Now, and going forward, the 'plasma5' naming convention will be dropped in favour of the regular naming convention. Also, all existing plasma4 releases, as well as the older nonstd releases, have been moved to a new directory named bluestar-linux-deprecated.

    A new desktop release is currently being uploaded. It will be named bluestar-linux-4.5.1-desktop-2016.05.05 and will be available in the sourceforge bluestar-linux-desktop directory. It is a plasma5 release. ETA is approximately 32 hours.

    Cheers

    bluestar-linux-4.5.1-deskpro-plasma5-2016.04.24 is available for download.

    The new release includes the latest versions of kde5/plasma5 and the latest kernel, linux-4.5.1.

    The autostart call to cairo-dock has been changed to 'cairo-dock -c' disconnecting it from opengl. Those who would prefer using the opengl backend, simply edit $HOME/.config/autostart/cairo-dock.desktop and change the 'Exec' component, removing the '-c' option. I have found that using the cairo-dock backend seems to be more stable than using opengl - at least when using the nouveau graphics driver.

    The graphical installer has been updated from v1.1.4 to v2.2.1 - this includes a new partition manager which I hope will resolve some disk partitioning issues, the existence of which I was only recently made aware. Some anomalies in the settings were also corrected.

    The command line installer was also tweaked, removing language installation and the setting of desktop language. These functions have become redundant because all languages are now included with kde5/plasma5. Setting your desktop language can be done with systemsettings->Regional Settings. I had initially modified the installer script to build a language menu for an initial language setting, but due to memory constraints imposed by an increase in kde5/plasma5 memory usage, building the menu caused the installer to crash, despite working perfectly in a test environment. I may revisit this for my next build.

    I have noticed that plasma5 uses a lot more memory than plasma4. There are bug reports that suggest there may be memory leaks, but none of these have been resolved. I strongly recommend that users keep an eye on their /var/lib/systemd/coredump directory - too many core dumps could fill your file system to the point where you cannot log in. For those not interested in chasing down the cause of the core dumps, make sure to keep this directory cleaned out (or mount /var on a separate partition). Personally, I only see this issue on the one system that uses the nouveau graphics driver.

    That said, the current incarnation of kde5/plasma5 appears to be somewhat more stable than it has been - baby steps, I guess.

    Cheers
