I will be posting a beta test iso based upon Xubuntu 18.04 beta 2 with the Xubuntu stuff taken out. I have not rethemed it yet and it has the old graphics from my SuperGamer series, there is a plan to do a cleaner graphics. Plymouth is messed up, using text mode now, and I fixed the ldconfig.real file that Ubuntu ships with as well as a few other issues that I'm not going to get into. I know on the second reboot from an install it looses resolution from a VirtualBox install and you have to log back into the account manually. I did not include Gimp or OpenJDK. I do not have Firejail installed for a second layer of protection for Chromium and I do not have the check for pepperflash checking everyday for updates. I also used a 3rd party installer that you select an icon from the desktop to install. The iso is 1.3GB in size at this point and may get bigger for some additional software to make a release. I need this tested so I know what is wrong so I can fix things. So please give Feedback. The iso will be posted on Monday as well as on the website. I will post a link here for a direct zipped folder with md5sum a sha256 file.

I think I have fixed Plymouth. I have at least done it on a vm install and I know where the issue is at and is an easy fix. I know the sound volume was turned down to 45 or 50 percent so I am going to set it at 100 percent and let the users decide on where they want it. I have changed the cairo dock theme after looking at other docks and decided not to go back to wbar for an issue with a black box that cannot be fixed. The issue will go away after changing wallpaper and rebooting or logging back in but this looks bad and shouldn't happen and I shouldn't have to slow the desktop down to accommodate wbar. The fix was slowing the startup of wbar by 7 seconds at startup but it would still show a black box after changing wallpaper until a reboot or logging back in.

I have not fixed plymouth at this time. If I get it working correctly it throws a frame buffer memory overrun. I do have a second beta iso which I will post in the near future but I am hoping to get plymouth fixed before hand.
