Thank you for the very good work. I found a light and professional environment, as usual. cool
Once I loved the material icon set you used, but now it is used everywhere, so now it annoys me. I will install another one, I think.

Will you publish also a 32 bit release?

Hello everyone, also testing Q4OS Centaurus 3.5 in VirtualBox.
Installation was fast easy, lasted 15 minutes.
It is working very well and with the correct updates.

Re: Q4OS Centaurus 3.5, testing

I really like this new installer it looks great!

I just wanted to note a few things I have found from this installation, none of which are a real problem but just things I noticed that are either different/missing/ambiguous.

1. Local keyboard not autodetected from installer

2. Localisation not autodetected from installer

3. In the Summary it stated "Set up fat32 partition /dev/sda2 with mount point /boot/efi" which is sort of correct but it reads like it might format the partition and therefore lose my other boot options, this obviously did not happen and everything ran smoothly but I was concerned and almost stopped the installation to check.

4. There was no mention of swap partition on Summary page and it was not re-formatted (to my relief) although still used

5. This being a laptop I expected tdepowersave-trinity to be installed without relying on a profile installation but it wasn't.

The installation ran smoothly and everything else appears correctly configured and working as expected, Thanks guys, great work! and a thank you to @Jaerrib for the good work with the icon-set they look great too.

Re: Q4OS Centaurus 3.5, testing

Just to add to Dai's point about the keyboard - on installation the keyboard was selected as 105 key intl but on first boot it shows as 104 key.

I'm pretty sure this has carried forward from earlier versions but it looked like a good opportunity to mention it.
