Hi All,

The latest Thunderbird for ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC is the version 45.3.0 (August 30, 2016) but it is possible to use the new version 45.6.0 from Debian Sid/experimental PowerPC.

I solved all dependencies and uploaded it today.

Download: thunderbird-45.6.0-powerpc.tar.gz

Cheers,

Hi All,

Sad news.

Lubuntu has removed the daily build ISO for PowerPC. The daily build ISO for ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC is still available.

Links:

Lubuntu daily builds
ubuntu MATE daily builds

I do a lot of advertising for the PowerPC platform on the ubuntu MATE google+ and Facebook page. I hope I can postpone the dropping of ubuntu MATE PowerPC.

I will update my installed development version of ubuntu MATE 17.04 as long as possible. After that I will try to release an unofficial ubuntu MATE 17.04 USB img with the latest Firefox, Thunderbird, and some nice wallpapers for the X5000 and X1000.

Cheers,
Christian

Quote Martin Wimpress:

Dropped PowerPC
Debian announced it is dropping PowerPC as a release architecture in October 2016.
Ubuntu Technical Board announced that Ubuntu is removing 32-bit powerpc architecture from future Ubuntu releases.
Consequently Ubuntu MATE will not be releasing PowerPC images anymore.
Ubuntu MATE 16.04 will continue to support PowerPC until 2019.

Hi All,

It is still possible to upgrade ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC. Maybe we have luck and we can release an unofficial ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC for our NG Amigas. Of course we have to use another name for it. What do you think about "MATE PowerPC Remix 2017"?

I have created some wallpapers for the new MATE PowerPC Remix 2017. (unofficial ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC)

MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 small ball 1920x1280 wallpaper:

Hi All,

We need your help. All applications and desktops which use opengles and opengles2 have wrong colors. (pink or blue color)

Luigi has created a bug report on freedesktop.org. Please run the the following demo in your Firefox web browser and if you have the same problem, please report it.

Link to the demo: https://playcanv.as/p/SA7hVBLt/

Link to the bug report: Bug 99638

I have the same problem. I added my system to Luigi's bug report today.

Thanks in advance,
Christian
