• David Nickel has announced the release of SuperGamer 5, a brand-new version of the project’s Ubuntu-based distribution designed for gamers. Although the live image does not come with any pre-installed games, it includes scripts for downloading and installing a number of popular gaming platforms, such as Steam, Lutris (an open-source gaming platform for Linux) and PlayOnLinux (a Wine software compatibility layer for installing Windows-based video games and other software on Linux). The new release of SuperGamer is based on Ubuntu 19.10, featuring a recent Linux kernel (version 5.3) and an Xfce 4.14 user interface with a Whisker menu. “The SuperGamer version 5 has arrived. It is based upon the Ubuntu 19.10 base, is 64-bit ONLY, and it has the 5.3 kernel and Xfce 4.14. I have included installers for Steam, Lutris and PlayOnLinux as well as cleaned up the look and feel of it. UEFI support is still hit and miss with the new GRUB, but it does work in Live mode.” Visit the project’s home page to read the brief release announcement. The zipped ISO image is available for download from this Google Drive account. The compressed file (1,308MB) includes the ISO image (1,331MB, pkglist) as well as MD5 and SHA256 checksums. SuperGamer 5 can be installed onto the hard disk via a standard graphical installer.
