Be sure to check out updates as of 25 June, 2013 , 1 July, 2013 and 10 July, 2013 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy.
UPDATE: The issue with XMir is inconsistent now. Out of 3 reboots, I’m hitting the issue once.
Going by the usual test template, after the update I performed the standard set of tests. One major break seems to be that XMir is no more working for me. Scoring launchpad for bugs showed nothing similar to the issue. Hence raised #1201793 XMir does not work session started with X. Hopefully something comes out of it.
Now for the standard tests and Sanity Results:
|Boot Up||PASS||None. Now dual booting with Ubuntu 13.04 as selectable option|
|Unity workflow||PASS||The double click to launch workflow kind of feels tiresome.|
|App Install||PASS||Installed Ubuntu Touch SDK and related Libraries. Went without a glitch. Will post more on it later.|
|KDE App Install||PASS||None Installed this time.|
|XMir Activation||FAIL||Falls back to X anyways with errors in log.|
- XMir fails to boot up
- No major issues on X
- App launch on left click has not yet landed.
- No major performance issues.
Go / No Go on install:
If your main purpose to install Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander is to check out the infamous Mir, you’ll be disappointed with the latest install. Or maybe it’s just my hardware. I wouldn’t bet on it. Otherwise, things seem to run smooth enough for me to perform my daily duties without glitch.
