And wow is it fast.
UPDATE: resume from sleep works!
It may not look different on the surface (except for some new backgrounds, and the new name) but the performance enhancements are quite noticeable.
The update breaks the touch screen and the auto login so have a USB keyboard and mouse plugged in. Jolicloud should let you know that you are running an outdated version and offer to upgrade. Go for it. All it will give you is a small “syncing” indicator that seems to scroll for each of the 100-some files it needs to update. It seems like an oddly small update, as I’m used to Ubuntu dist-upgrades that can be 700+ files.
The updating happens in the background, and it will prompt you to reboot when it’s done.
The first thing you will notice is that auto-login is broken. That’s an easy fix we’ll get to in a bit. The bigger issue is the lack of touchscreen, again.
This is based on the guide to installing 1.1. You will just need to redo a few things.
Re-add the kernel option to grub - i8042.nomux
The rc.local file should have stayed the same, but it doesn’t hurt to check.
Re-run ./setup.sh in the eGalax folder that should still be in your home folder.
After a reboot, my touchscreen worked again with the same good configuration. I did not have to recalibrate.
According the Feature List for 1.2, it’s now a 1 click option to enable auto-login.
Gear icon > This Device > Info > check the box to enable auto login.
The keyboard button should still bring up OnBoard or cellwriter, whichever you have configured. Enjoy your faster Joli OS.
