I just read a review of Pardus 2009.2:

I was little suprised over this comment:

"But the amount of applications available was disappointingly low.
Taking into account the large application catalog already included on the Pardus 2009.2 installation, I think many users should be just fine, even with the limitations in its repositories."

Have the author included "Contrib" and run a Pisi update after the installation? What I can see in my own Pardus 2009.2 at home the programs-respositories are much larger than any previous Pardus version.

I asked the writer of the review yesterday what packages he missing in Pardus 2009.2 and get this answer:

"@john3: Using the default setup (no contrib repos enabled) I can't find Amarok, GIMP, Chromium, Compiz, dropbox, gnome-system-monitor, etc. In fact, except for Amarok, the contrib repos don't do much better."

Can  he have done something wrong with the installation? I got the programs like Gimp and Amarok in my own Pardus 2009.2 when I have check it.

this can`t be a installations problem. I think he has not enculde all the repos which you find in this Thread and after it I think, he has not done a Update.  Wink

It not repo problem. Amarok, GIMP come with default install. No need to download.

"The lack of Compiz effects was a bit of a let down. I am aware that KWIN effects are available, but in my opinion, they are nowhere near what Compiz achieves in terms of variety, flexibility and power." -Final Review: Pardus 2009.2

+1 for me. Tongue
