I’m testing the 4.7 ISO from a live boot standpoint. Libreoffice crashes when attempting to run it various ways, and apparmor is reporting as ‘inactive (dead)’ with the message condition failed | ConditionPathExists=!/run/live/overlay/work was not met. Running both the same kernel, Libreoffice version on my installed (fully updated) system, Libreoffice loads just fine.

Vokoscreen doesn’t record : corrected by : change recorder directory to : /user/bin/ffmpeg

Testing home edition 4.7 in virtualbox, 1gb ram:
everything seems okay. the menu has mifare shortcut (pentesting tool) but the tool is not installed and the command is missing. This is a bug that i have to fix in the menu before the 4.7 release officially.
I am seeing both Firefox (quatumn?) and firefox esr in the menu. Using both version may break firefox profiles. I think we should remove ESR version (save some space).
I am seeing pre-installed packages and i think we can remove some to save more space

Update 1: get firejail error: user is not allowed. User has to run sudo firecfg. Can we do something to add user during installation?

Update2: the shortcut is here because of pre-installed lib
