Description:

Is based on Debian Gnome 10.4
The idea is to present the old looks of Gnome with the panel etc.
and have the gnome fallback session preconfigured
Most apps are streamlined to follow the looks
of a dark theme with dark purple bg and orange text
Other themes are available, use Tweaks

Software has been chosen also from kde, mate, cinnamon, xfce
like Kstars, Krecipes, Kalzium, K3b, Kruler, Kolorpaint
Kgamma, pluma, mate-sound-control, nemo, xfce-mixer
We also installed older abandoned applications from Debian and Ubuntu
like Screenlets, Knemo, Knetload, Kkbswitch, Avant Window Navigator,
Ubuntu-Tweak modified to only show working modules (most of them),
Dockbarx, Cardapio, Dvdstyler, Gksu,Multiload-ng, Oomox, Photoprint
external software: Google Earth, Netactview, Wifi-guard, Dunst, Shutter
Bitbudget, Caprine, Cawbird, Frostwire,Indicator-Lunar, Indicator-USB

For the window manager we use Compiz-Reloaded 8.16 with Emerald Decorator
Fusion-Icon has switch to Metacity or Mutter WM and added
more functions to menu: Metacity-WM-Theme-Selector, Ubuntu-Tweak
Display Resolution & Refresh,Display Gamma

For the dock we use Avant Window Navigator, but Cairo-Dock is also installed
For text editor we use Pluma, a better application
For file browser we use Nemo, a more useful application
For music player we use Clementine, a better application

Dual keyboard US and Swiss
Language support for German
