Deleted my Facebook Account

I did it. And I’m very happy!

Sadly, I also had to delete the Rebellin Linux Facebook page. It wasn’t really useful in getting new users or customers anyway… Now I can focus on this site properly. Also, as social channels, I’m only keeping my twitter account and youtube channel.

But no worries. I’ll be here. Shall post updates regularly. Got a few great ideas planned.

Rebellin Linux v3.5 released!

Rebellin Linux v3.5 is out! Built on the goodness of Debian and the previous Rebellin, it’s the best Debian Sid based distribution you can get. Know why? Cos it comes with email support! Download Rebellin now and end your search for the perfect Linux distro!

The big news is our tiny WhatsApp Client for Linux. Nothing fancy. It just works. Also available for other Linux distributions. You may download our client for your favourite distribution (if it’s not Rebellin already!).

List of updates:

  • Gnome Shell upgraded to v3.22.2 (New updates are available after download)
  • Mate Version upgraded to v1.16.1 (New updates are available after download)
  • Kernel upgraded to v4.8 Liquorix (New updates are available after download)
  • Brand new Material Design theme now completes the look!
  • Plenty of package and driver updates
  • MTP Support Added
  • Rebellin now works perfectly with AMD APUs. Tested on a tiny AMD A4-1200 (Temash, 1Ghz) processor and Rebellin just ploughs through!
  • Touchpad issues in Rebellin Mate have been completely rectified.
  • Rebellin Manual with great beginner friendly tutorials available free of cost.

Some changes and fixes:

  • Rebellin now uses Liquorix Kernel version 4.8. It’s more reliable than the kernel that was available from official Debian Repositories. And did I say it’s fast? It’s wonderful! Also, do upgrade your system after download to get the latest version of Liquorix.
  • VLC has been replaced by Totem.

Known issues:
The installer may fail to identify touchpads on some computers. Mouse works fine. Please use Text Install mode or use a mouse. Touchpad works fine after installation on all computers.

Overall, this is a great build. It’s faster than v3 and even the Gnome Shell version works gracefully in as low as 512 MB of RAM. I hope you enjoy using Rebellin. If you need any help, don’t hesitate to contact us. Email support is available!

Thank you so much Distrowatch Team for the news item!

Rebellin Manual, June 2016 update, released!

Namaste to all our Rebellin family members!

The new Rebellin Manual is out. Have you got my email with the download link? If you haven’t, do let me know via the support email. I’ll send you the manual as an email attachment right away!

New customers can download it here.

Some changes:

  1. Five new tutorials added
  2. Fixed plenty of grammatical and spelling mistakes.
  3. Added hyperlinks for better navigation
  4. Improved fonts. Now the commands are in a larger font and dark red in color for better visibility.

We’re back in business!

As you must have noticed, the site went offline on June 1st. There were problems with the DNS settings. I thought it was a great opportunity to change some things. As such, the whole set up has been upgraded. 🙂

A big thank you to the great folks at SiteGround! You guys are fab!

Business is as usual.

Rebellin Linux v3 released!

Building a stable system on Debian Sid that’s reliable for day to day usage is hard. It took me quite a while this time. But I’m immensely happy with the result. Here’s Rebellin Linux v3. With the latest and greatest software from Debian. It’s fast, reliable and got all you need for a great multimedia experience. Download Rebellin now!

List of updates:

  1. Gnome Shell upgraded to v3.20
  2. Mate Version upgraded to v1.12
  3. Kernel upgraded to v4.5
  4. SMXI scripts integrated
  5. Infinality Font Rendering Patches
  6. Droid Fonts added
  7. Improved theme for the Mate version
  8. Bluetooth support added to Mate version (It was previously missing! Silly me.)
  9. Plenty of package and driver updates
  10. Rebellin Manual with great beginner friendly tutorials available free of cost.

Some changes:

  1. Gnome terminal replaced by terminator. This enhances Gnome Shell stability. Gnome Terminal is buggy and results in system freeze.
  2. Totem replaced by VLC. Redundant software removed for building a lighter product.
  3. GDM3 replaced by LightDM. GDM3 was problematic during the build process. Resulted in blank screen on start up. LightDM works fine.

Known issues:

  1. May result in blank screen on start up on AMD Kabini Devices. I’m working on this.
  2. The installer may fail to identify touchpads on some computers. Mouse works fine. Please use Text Install mode or use a mouse. Touchpad works fine after installation on all computers.

Overall, this is a great build. It’s faster than v2.5 and even the Gnome Shell version works gracefully in as low as 512 of RAM. I hope you enjoy using Rebellin. If you need any help, don’t hesitate to contact us. Email support is available!
