Hi Felix,

Mint is package-compatible (indeed it uses ubuntu repositories) with an additional repo with a few of their own packages. As they don't want to lose compatibility with ubuntu none of the system libraries are altered.
I run ppz on linux mint & I've never had a problem.

I did have an image based on ubuntu 9.04 which had paparazzi, some scripts to handle updating etc and some other useful bits preinstalled.
I can update it at some point if you think there would be interest.

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(totally outdated) live cd...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.

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

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<**Getting_Started>

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