Lemur 5 Reborn!

Lemur 5 Reborn!

Liquid Lemur is about to be reborn with Lemur 5. Yesterday I finally figured out the issues with running a default Window Maker layout and the dockapps. As seen in the above screenshot from my laptop, it’s working fine. Due to this recent discovery, I am changing Lemur back to a default Window Maker layout. This will give users a more “pure” Window Maker experience. I will leave the hybrid bits installed though, for those that like the hybrid layout….

Lemur 5 Coming Soon!

Lemur 5 Coming Soon!

Development is underway on the next release of Liquid Lemur Linux, Lemur 5. The release will bring some major changes to the Lemur OS and fix a lot of issues. The Debian base that Lemur uses will still be Debian 10 as in Lemur 4, but it will be rebuilt from scratch this time. The WM/DE will still be Window Maker, but in its hybrid form (as it is in Lemur 4) as shown in the screen shot above this…

The Future Lemur…

The Future Lemur…

As I have mentioned previously, I’m having trouble with the Window Maker dock apps used in Lemur. This has been an ongoing problem since day one of the Window Maker Lemurs. However, it seems to get worse with each Debian update. This is why, years ago, I started the Window Maker Resurrection Project (WMRP). I gathered as much Window Maker stuff as I could find. From apps, to themes and styles, and more. At one point, work was started on…

Lemur 4.1 Released!

Lemur 4.1 Released!

Liquid Lemur Linux 4.1 has been released. It should be available on the download server by the time you read this post. Unfortunately, there is no upgrade path from previous Lemurs (including 4.0) due to the entire Lemur update system being re-written. Going forward from this release, you will be able to upgrade without doing a complete re-install. Just to mention a few changes… The old Lemur installer has been replaced with the default Calamares installer for Debian. The Lemur…

Lemur 4 Released!

Lemur 4 Released!

It has been a long time coming, but Liquid Lemur Linux 4.0 has been released! I’ll get the forums back online in the next day or two… Lemur 4 still comes in the pre-morphed state. I planned to release it in the default Window Maker layout. However, after updating to Debian 10 (Buster) a lot of the Window Maker apps refused to work. So until I can find the issue, Lemur will remain pre-morphed. Release Notes: The Lemur 4 base…

Liquid Lemur 4.0

Liquid Lemur 4.0

Above you will see a simple screenshot of Liquid Lemur 4.0 that is currently under development. This is an early prototype and not ready for testing. Lemur 4.0 is running on Debian Buster. I trimmed down the default Conky, removing the redundant bits. I am slowly working to rebuild the Lemur custom apps and other custom bits. A new theme is also in the works. Stay tuned…

Lemur Forums

Lemur Forums

So, as you may know, I’ve been having trouble with spammers on the Lemur Forums. So much that I shut off registrations. There are some other issues with the forums that need attention as well. And that takes time. As I have mentioned a time or two, my free time is short these days. In light of that, I think I need to shutdown the forums completely for now. This (main site) will remain up of course. Temporarily closing the…

The (re)Building Begins

The (re)Building Begins

Let’s get back to building a better Lemur! Over the last few months I’ve been building and rebuilding all things Liquid Lemur. During that time a lot has happened. I had a career change, continued to devote time to my own business, family, and life in general. I had a huge setback with the data loss. A lot of Lemur bits were lost. Former Dreamlinux dev, Nelson, provided the old Dreamlinux build scripts (glad he still had them) and the…

State of the Lemur

State of the Lemur

I thought I would update everyone with the current state of all things Lemur… As you may know, Lemur development has been moving at a snail’s pace lately. To add to the slow development, I’ve had a couple of family members that were sick and in the hospital. I’ve had to work different shifts at my job which threw me out of sync. I’m working a full-time, physically demanding job and trying to run my own business at the same…

Latest Lemur News

Liquid Lemur is working its way back to where it once was, minus a few desktop editions of course. The image above is from the first “official” Liquid Lemur Linux release years ago. This was the release where Liquid OS became Liquid Lemur. This was the Xfce edition (no longer in production). It was built on Debian “testing” and more or less a rolling release. So, why bring all this up? Well, besides taking a trip down memory lane, as…
