Ubuntu 6.06 (LTS) in Greek



Ubuntu 6.06 (LTS) in Greek

Προέρχεται από τον simosx.

This is Ubuntu 6.06 (LTS), Desktop edition. You can use the installation CD as a LiveCD, and you can initiate the installation once you boot up. Really cool way to make sure that it works before installing.
Here I chose the Greek language while booting the desktop CD. The LiveCD interface has Greek translations!
What’s most interesting is that Greek now appear well for the first time in a distribution “by default”.
Thanks to the DejaVu fonts which are now available by default in Ubuntu 6.06, Greek users have an amazing experience in Linux.
I noticed that those with a widescreen display see some artefacts in the letters. This appears to be an issue with the settings and I believe it is resolved once you actually install on the hard disk.

Thanks DejaVu for the Greek support!

  1. I\’m not sure if it\’s the same thing, but there\’s a known bug that affects not only the users with widescreen displays but (I think) everyone who has an ATi graphics card (including me with my laptop\’s ATi Radeon Mobility). The bug causes artifacts in windows and/or OK/Cancel buttons etc.. It was first reported almost three months ago, yet it was never fixed…

  2. I had a look at

    It is not the same thing; the widescreen problem appears to happen due to the screen streching, and it\’s possible that it is fixed after completing the installation.

    The ATI bug appears to be related to Radeon cards (driver is the cause) and unfortunatelly the fix did not make it in Ubuntu 6.06.

    I have encountered the same problem in Breezy and hoped it would be solved. I have a laptop with an NVIDIA card and a widescreen. For me the problem is limited to serif fonts. Sans serif are clear in Dapper.

  3. If you could search in
    https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+bugs
    for possible existing reports on this issue, it would be great.

    Please report if you managed to encountered existing reports. If not, you can file a report.
