Ubuntu Furry Remix gets paint job, Bamboo support

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

Remember Ubuntu Furry Remix? There's a new version out (10.04) with an art software focus.

The distribution ships with GIMP Paint Studio (package) – a set of brushes and presets intended to improve the free image editor's usefulness for designers and artists. Support for the Wacom Bamboo and many other graphic tablets is included, as are five more furry wallpapers.

Ubuntu 10.04 is a long term release, with full support through 2013.

Guys, thats not nice! I've multibooted Ubuntu/Win 7/XP for a couple of years and I haven't heard about this until now! Is this the whole operating system? Mrrr... More partitioning. I remember, one time I accidentally deleted my C: drive. Ah, good times.

o.0 Are they only releasing 10.04 now? Ubuntu 10.10 was released about 4 months ago.

Yes, we are slow because of lack of contributors. Wanna help fix it? ;)

I use it but don't know all that much about any technical stuff. In any case when I first heard about it I looked and it mostly seemed to be cosmetic changes, and I don't remember any grabbing my eye. I'm not sure there's too much you can do to make an OS furry. I think I have the repositories listed though.

Niice. I might give it a go in a VM in a few days. I deal with linux pretty regularly if you want help with things :)
