Here is a new release of EnvyNG (which supports only Ubuntu Hardy). EnvyNG 1.1.0 is made up of 3 packages:
- envyng-core (which contains the main program + the textual interface)
- envyng-gtk (which contains the new GTK interface for GNOME, XFCE, etc. users)
- envyng-qt (which contains the new QT4 interface for KDE users)
If you install only envyng-core you will have only the textual interface which (currently) has less features than the 2 GUIs.
If you want to install either envyng-gtk or envyng-qt you will have to install envyng-core first.
The 2 GUIs now enable you to:
1) Install and save the packages with the driver to a folder
2) simply download the packages without installing anything (this will be useful if you want to install such packages on a computer which is not connected to the Internet)
EnvyNG relies upon my PPA repository (the packages are no longer built locally), therefore every time a new driver is released I will only have to update my repository and you won’t have to install a new release of EnvyNG. You will receive the update via update manager. The packages use DKMS (i.e. you won’t have to reinstall the driver for each kernel you have since this is done automatically), do not conflict with Ubuntu’s linux-restricted-modules, do not cause problems during dist-upgrades since they can be overwritten by Ubuntu’s official packages (if they provide a driver which is newer than the ones in my repository or if the kernel is upgraded, say, from 2.6.24 to 2.6.25, ABI bumps won’t do anything).
There was a problem with Launchpad therefore I wasn’t able to upload all your translations in time (but I promise I will ASAP). Thanks again for your translations.
Please read point A of the FAQ before you install EnvyNG (so that the old EnvyNG doesn’t conflict with version 1.1.0)
Please test the packages and let me know if there are problems.
As I said in the past, I would have never done all this alone. I would like to thank all the Ubuntu developers who helped me, all the artists who participated in the artwork contest, and the translators. And special thanks to Carlos Perelló Marín who helped me with Rosetta.
