Ubuntu 12.04 impressions

Some quick impressions of Ubuntu 12.04:

  • dist-upgrade went smoothly, no issues
  • xubuntu/xfce seems to have survived so far without noticeable changes
  • bluetooth.h is broken, it's using GNU extension typeof which conflicts with -ansi switch
  • libusb-1.0 stopped working in xboxdrv (might be xboxdrv bug)
  • Emacs ignores things set in .Xdefaults, had to use (set-default-font "Inconsolata-10.5") to get my old font back
  • have some anti-aliasing problems after playing around with Gnome3, KDE and Unity
  • BGR font subpixel rendering is still broken, you get RGB instead (patch is available)
  • volume control in XFCE4 is still broken, but fixable
  • lots of crash dialogs pop up due to some background thing crashing
  • default gtk3 theme under XFCE4 still looks like crap and there isn't a proper way to fix that via GUI, only via a workaround, haven't yet found a Gtk-3.0 theme that replicates the Clearlooks theme
