Important Package Changes

A few people have had problems with the way Ubuntu Satanic is packaged and some changes have been made to resolve any conflicts with other Ubuntu packages, such as UbuntuStudio.

The problems stemmed from the way the sound package was installed. We followed the way set by UbuntuStudio, where we replaced the ubuntu-sounds package with our own satanic-sounds. This replaces the login/logout WAVs with our own, meaning that no manual configuration is required.

However, the conflict with ubuntu-sounds meant that ubuntu-desktop was also removed when Ubuntu Satanic was installed. As this is only a metapackage, it should not be a problem. However, we now feel that it is best not to conflict with this package.

So, we’ve changed the satanic-sounds package (in version 666.3.1) to just install our sounds as separate files which must be selected by the user after installation.

To pick up this new change, do the following:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install satanic-sounds
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
