Hi Gareth,

I haven't used mint so far, and I don't know if you can just use the ubuntu ppa (and if all the needed packages have the same versions in mint).
Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu are definitely fine...

But it would be nice to make an image for a usbstick, just like the old (totally outdated) live cd...
If someone want's to do that, it would be appreciated!

Cheers, Felix

Hi Felix & all,

Iman, this is a bit off-topic so go with the previous advice.

Thinking about it, should the 'official' newbie recommendation still be Ubuntu?
I'm internally recommending Linux Mint to our students now as the interface is less of a step-change from Windows, and we had problems with Unity.
Other options could include:
- Lubuntu
- Kubuntu
- Crunchbang (perhaps not that newbie friendly...)
- TinyCore (I use it for a tiny VM 'appliance' for our fab house to bootload & test boards)

Hopefully this won't degrade into Vim vs Emacs, it's about the most suitable distro for beginners which is simple to install, use and is PPZ compatible.

You could also install Ubuntu on a usbstick and add paparazzi there... but
not the best performance wise...

Hi Iman,

Paparazzi moves very quickly, so you'd be easier installing first Ubuntu
Linux, then paparazzi.**Getting_Started<>

Ubuntu should work fine in a virtualization package such as Virtualbox.
