Upgrading to Ubuntu Breezy 0 comments

I just finished upgrading from hoary to breezy. It went reasonably smoothly but there where two gotchas when it came to xorg. First off the keyboard driver has changed from 'keyboard' to 'kbd'.

So the relevant section of xorg.conf has to look like this

Section "InputDevice"

Identifier "Generic Keyboard"

Driver "kbd"

Option "CoreKeyboard"

Option "XkbRules" "xorg"

Option "XkbModel" "pc105"

Option "XkbLayout" "ie"

EndSection

Second the fonts directory has moved so you need to edit that section of xorg.conf to look like this.

Section "Files"

FontPath "unix/:7100" # local font server

# if the local font server has problems, we can fall back on these

FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc"

FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/cyrillic"

FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"

FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"

FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/Type1"

FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/CID"

FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi"

FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/75dpi"

# paths to defoma fonts

FontPath "/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType"

FontPath "/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/CID"

EndSection

Overall breezy contains a lot of small improvements. Evince the new document viewer is nice. But there is no single improvement I have seen so far that would blow your socks off. A little more polish on an already shining Distro.
