Update problem solved. I had gotten a pop-up when trying to update, which said something was broken. It advised I disable third-party updates, and run <apt-get install -f>. I disabled proprietary drivers and restricted or copyrighted updates, then ran the command, which did a bunch of stuff. When it finished, I tried updating again and this time it worked. I needed to restart computer and now it's actually running better!

Zorin OS 12 Lite Beta 64 bit
Not sure if it is an issue/bug but my software sources (main server) had 3 x 'Recommended updates' and 3 x 'Source code' below in "Other Software" tab.

Edit:
Just scrolled down and same for 'Important security updates'.

I'm pretty sure I've seen this in Core/Ultimate before and think it might be an Ubuntu bug with that part of the system. Rightly or wrongly in the past I have deleted the ones below the first instance but will check further so don't do anything yet

Hi can you please repost in the Installation section of the forum as this thread is for feedback on the installed OS. Thanks.

I already deleted them (bottom two) and sure I have seen same in the past with OS 9 10 11 also. Its a beta on my 'shed' PC and thats why I have a shed, to break stuff, I think that's what a shed is for...

Feedback

The first thing I noticed was that the details section on the settings was gone. I would really like to have that if possible. The overall look is nice and very similar to the other versions of 12.1
it runs well with only 512MB of RAM. (32-bit)

Bug?
I tried to install adobe flash player from the official adobe site. When I clicked download, after selecting APT for deb/ubuntu, it asks what program I want to use. It only lists the software program. but when I use it, It says "oops, that didn't work"
I was able to install from tar.gz but wanted to point out the issue.

Keep up to great work guys, I appreciate all you do! :D

Hello,
some feedback. I attempted to install OS 12 lite Beta on an ancient custom computer with no luck
- AMD Athlon XP @ 1.1ghz
- 1 gig ram
- Asus A7n8x2 motherboard

I tried install from optical drive, it stalled at the welcome screen "install Zorin OS 12 Lite, test memory, etc"

It just said, "no text" for all the F key options on the bottom of the screen.

I tried two different burns of the .iso file and checked the hash so i don't think that was the problem.

I was also successful with Lubuntu, puppylinux, and linuxlite on the same machine.

Anyways, not a complaint, just some feedback.

Keep up the good work. I use 12 core on my main laptop as my daily driver and really like it.

Thank You.

Hi. I am loving Zorin OS 12 Lite beta. It is very stable. I think I like this better than the regular Zorin OS 12. Gnome 3 can be a little flaky. I haven't tried it in a while to see if the extensions hold in the Gnome desktop after switching back to it from a different version. I'm glad to hear you will be releasing an Education version of the Lite. I think I will get a pay version to install on a friend's sons PC. Keep up the great work.

I have one thing I would like to see in Zorin OS 12 Lite. Can you possibly add a favorites area to the menu? I miss that from the Whisker Menu. I just may have use the Whisker Menu. I really like what you have done though with the Zorin Menu Lite. :D
