Enso OS 0.3.1 – Using Xfce Desktop 4.12 and Based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Published on October 27, 2019 by

Enso OS 0.3.1 is the latest release of Enso OS, This release based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS features Xfce 4.12 as default desktop environment combined with Gala, a Mutter-based window/compositing manager designed for use in Elementary OS.

The most notable changes are within the application management, a fork of the Elementary project’s AppCenter. Dubbed “AppHive” in Enso OS, it has native Snap support. The category selector (a list view on the left-hand side) displays nice colors, and there is an added Games category.

The greeting application will now autofocus into the password input text box on load, the default avatar has been updated to be more generic and the guest user and additional users’ selection have been disabled by default to make the screen look less busy and the clock will position itself better on smaller screen sizes.

The simple dock application has had some minor alterations and has merged with the main branch to bring over some of the changes that have been applied such as improved performance and HiDPI support

A new dock item for Multitasking View has also been added, to allow users to add this element back in if required
