New splashscreen for Vieste 2.0 and 2.0.1

If you have installed Ufficio Zero Vieste 2.0 or 2.0.1 version with our repository, you can update the splashscreen with “U” and red spinner, by installing our ubuntu-system-adjustments-2019.12.09.2+nmu1 and then you can do this command through console:

If you have a D-link nas or others and you can't connect it, the problem may dependes from new samba package and it configuration. You can solve this problem by editing the smb.conf file with this command:

sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf

and adding the following string with its comment:

#This is the configuration for D-Link nas
client min protocol = NT1

Hidden boot splash on Vieste 2.0.2

Calamares installer modifies the grub, both in bios and efi, removing “splash” so this causes that boot splash is hidden. You can use a work-around after installation is done by editing the file /etc/default/grub and adding splash immediately after quiet. Then you can use this command:

sudo update-grub

to make it permanent. For those who builds the iso it is better to take action on this file at line 116 you can add splash to quiet [“quiet splash”]

How to add others UfficioZero repositories

We have released new package that add many other repositories located everywhere, due to bandwith limit on our servers.

To use Garr mirror (located in Italy) by default, you can select the replace button when asked, during the system update.

How to solve problem with our repository

On June 2nd We updated the signature on our repositories therefore the keyring package update was released before June 28th automatically on the PCs that have performed the updates. However, it can happen that after June 28, if users have not performed system updates, the same can report signature problems on our repository. In this case, to remedy the problem, you can download and install the keyring package from this link: to solve this problem.

On January 2, 2023 We recreated all our repositories on a new server so if your system gives you an error about the InRelease file or the new key of the new repositories during the updates, don't panic!
