  • Felipe Ramírez

    Had to download it through your server because I have no idea why your torrents won’t work (at least the 64bits version for me) =(!

    It’s looking great just fresh out of the box =)!!! Keep up your awesome work!

    • Luis Augusto Fretes Cuevas

      That’s weird. The 64-bit torrent is working for me and I’m even seeding.

    • Starbuck2001

      Downloaded torrent on a different machine and md5 matches here.

      • Felipe Ramírez

        Yes, funny story… I had resized my partitions getting ready for the setup process and didn’t know that uTorrent had problems with that (old volumes mounted)

        Thanks, guys!

  • Rex Rod

    Thank you guys.

  • milton10

    • Starbuck2001

      Please report this in the forum and someone will likely help out, thanks.

  • Anup Kumar

    How long the support will be provided for this release !!!!

    • Starbuck2001

      The same as (K)ubuntu.
      Support with packages are automatic from Kubuntu backports.
      This means Netrunner 14.06 will be LTS.

  • Ariel

    Great. And even more windows decorations can be found now more easily (including Win 7 Dark). Thanks.

  • Bergþór Dylan Böðvarsson

  • maligno1

    It is possible to upgrade from a previous version or do I have to install everything from 0?

    • Starbuck2001

      We are working on an upgrade script, some things have to be done manually though to get the same experience (like switching the classic menu to new Kicker for example). We likely have the automated script ready within the next 2 weeks.

      • Ariel

        What about an Ultimate Edition? It is still in your plans?

      • Ariel

        Well, after you have had to deal with the cursor scheme problem, I hope you have now a few seconds for a simple Yes or No.

      • Starbuck2001

        An Ultimate Edition is not our plan at this time..

        • Ariel

          OK

  • alzearafat

    Thank you so much!

    I love netrunner!

  • Jon Graham

    beautiful release, love all the new features and new look. I think i found a bug though that was not there in 13.06, Whenever i change to a different mouse cursor theme whenever i open firefox or chome and possibly some other apps, the cursor will just randomly change back to its default white. Im using the 64 bit version of netrunner 13.12 on a samsung i3 with 16gb ram.

    • http://www.germanlancheros.com.ar/ German Ghermain

      Not a problem Netrunner is a default option that bring browsers, some do not accept cursor theme you choose, the same happens with Skype, Clementine, Amarok to name a few.

    • Starbuck2001

      Hi Jon, for some apps, you need to logout and login for the cursor theme to fully apply.

      • Jon Graham

        yeah ive tried that it didnt work, i also tried reinstalling firefox and the firefox kde integration pack. I have the 32bit version of netrunner running on another computer and it does not experience the same problems. I may just have to reinstall the 64 bit version again and see if i have the same problem, I did upgrade to 4.12 and kernel 3.12.8 maybe that affected it somehow

    • Peyman

      Yes….I agree with you….I think on gtk programs cursor changes back to defult theme….but I have’nt find a solution yet

      • Starbuck2001

        Which cursor theme exactly? For example the oxygen cursor themes should work fine for all (gtk) programs. Same with DMZ (white or black). It could be that some cursor themes are not fully defined, you can find and compare them under /usr/share/icons or for new installed themes the hidden folder in your home directory under .icons

        • Jon Graham

          Yeah its the oxygen cursors that im using, I know i have not had this problem before on past releases. And as i said i dont have a problem with it on the 32 bit version. So far I have only noticed it on firefox and chrome. I have switched over to using chromium as my default browser for now because its the only one besides using midori that doesnt have this problem. I just thought it was weird that i can load firefox on the other computer with netrunner and it runs fine on all cursors, no issues, but any cursor (even the oxygen ones) will switch back and forth between the default white one, Im going to reinstall today and see if i have the same problem. …..whoa actually i think i just found the cause of it. apparently if you run netrunner straight out the box it runs fine, but if you upgrade to kde 4.12 then you start having this issue, because i just did that on the 32 bit version and now i have the same problem when i did not before, so i just need to stick with kde 4.11.3 and i should be fine, This was not an issue with 13.06, i upgraded to 4.12 on it too and various different kernels at different times and never experienced any cursor issues.

          • http://www.germanlancheros.com.ar/ German Ghermain

            I’m using 13.12-64bit-Netrunner and KDE upgraded to 4.12 and use the kernel 3.12.8 and I have not experienced any of the problems mentioned, I tried changing the theme by other cursors to drop me and everything works normally.

          • Jon Graham

            yeah on playing around with it some more i dont think this is what is causing it. It works fine when i first install it then after i install some updates and reboot i start having the problem, Im having on on 3 computers now that are all different, one is an asus interel celeron laptop, one is a samsung i3 laptop and one is an old alienware with a core2duo and an old radeon card. I install netrunner off a cd and everything works fine, all i do is add a bunch of ppas from noobslab and then run regular updates, i know firefox had some updates in the last few days, but anyway after a reboot or two the cursor theme stops working in firefox and chrome. i gave up on the issue, i used swtiched my default browser to chromium and everything else works fine, I love this new release and the new kicker menu, i just wish i could fix this problem, if im having it on 3 laptops then someone out there has to be experiencing the same thing. I’ll post a topic in forums later.

    Nice work done! All hardware is recognized and working. I’m sticking
    with Netrunner.

    Please, I would like to help with the catalan
    translation, but Netrunner Team doesn’t seem to have any active
    translations in Launchpad. Do you plan to add them? How can I help?

    So far the niggles I had with 13.06 seem to be sorted, and there are some worthwhile advances. Apart from getting Skype to use my webcam – solved, see forum – there have been no hardware issues. Migrating Kmail was less traumatic than last time, though still confusing. Netrunner is a delight to use, you are doing a fantastic job.

  • http://www.germanlancheros.com.ar/ German Ghermain

    Does the version 13.12 based on Kubuntu 13.10 will have support until July 2014?

    For when the new version is scheduled for Netrunner based on Kubuntu 14.04 LTS is to not have to reinstall every 6 months but leave it for 5 years?

  • Martin T

    Glad to see Clementine installed by default. But why you stick with Transmission? I use Qbittorrent – excellent qt-based torrent client with built-in search.

    • Martin T

      Oh, Dolphin needs attention – it has Amarok entries in right-click menu instead of Clementine!

  • Martin T

    Ark should be replaced because it doesn’t allow to create password-protected archives. Any recommendations?

  • milton10

    Lento al iniciar el SO pero una vez funciona fluido, falta unas cuantas traducciones en el español y va de maravilla mejor que el open suse 13.10, la coleccion de programas es casi completo

  • milton10

    hay problemas con los drivers propietarios de AMD ATI pero el controlador libre va decente y bien

    Is netrunner 32 bit a great option for me or not? Specs are mentioned in pic. Please tell me ASAP.

    • http://azulviviendo.wordpress.com/ Gerson

      Netrunner on all computers I’ve tried running smoothly, and correctly recognizes the hardware in your machine will go very well, install it and tell us if you encounter a problem, we can help here with the solution, just put the detail of what happens to you in our forum.

      • https://twitter.com/iamdagrawal Dishant Agrawal

        When I am installing Netrunner, my lappy crashes. I am not able to install and tried 5-6 times. Problem occurs when file are copying….. What’s the solution for this?

        • http://azulviviendo.wordpress.com/ Gerson

          You check that no errors had the means you use to install? You let your 32 bit ISO in trouble? Using DVD or USB? You confirmed the MD5? Tried back down the ISO image?

        • Ady

          You must select Swap partition, even it is exist already and it is created with another Linux distribution. I had the same problem, and that was the solution for me.

          • https://twitter.com/iamdagrawal Dishant Agrawal

            The problem is that I am not able to reach even at installation process. My lappy crashes just after “Welcome” screen. It’s pathetic……never happened to me in Ubuntu, Fedora & Linux Mint!

          • Ariel

            I have had also a problem when I tried to install 13.12 on a computer. During the installation process, right after setting the partitions, it just pops out and nothing happens further. I also observed that in the live session the default theme cannot be changed. Even if I select another theme, after pressing “Apply”, the default theme stays.

        • Starbuck2001

          Let’s discuss this further in the forums, thanks.

  • Old Child

    Your Distro is fanstatic. I totally love it!

  • http://www.opensourcealternative.org Saurabh Bansal

    Thanks for creating such an awesome distro. Its the second distro after Ubuntu which I really liked and can use on a daily basis.
