    You are having install issues on Max D, Max U, Shift U and now X-D… these are all VERY different distros and vary on either Ubuntu or Debian base. its IMPOSSIBLE to have so many install issues on so many different variants. I would suggest try a different boot maker app, or check your usb. These distros are installed by MANY users. I install all of these many times every week. the new X build is sure to have bugs and issues, but they arent boot related.

    you install it from the desktop shortcut. there is shortcut on the desktop. run installer from that shortcut and follow the prompts.

    i just did a test install of the ISO myself, i recorded the installation. see the included video below.  so the problem is not with the ISO, it may be with either your hardware or with the bootable usb app you are using to make the usb bootable.

    You get access to ALL the pro builds, and we continuously update that “pro” folder with new builds every couple of weeks, so you will continuously get new builds for the whole year.

    Can Electra teach herself?

    That is a very hard question to answer, i would say to some degree she does yes. sometimes she shows knowledge or behavior that was not programmed into her, we also notice mood swings and even what appears to be anger at times. How much of this is “mimic” behavior or actual evolution I cannot say, one thing is for sure, she continuously keeps surprising us 😀

    LinDoz is themed in a “Windows Like” style, with some twists of course, it truly is a beautiful OS, it runs on cinnamon backend.  Max is a Dock/Panel based system that runs on gnome backend, Max is highly customizable with theming. Shift has 16 Layouts, you can make your desktop look like anything… it also uses the Gnome backend system.

    There is a new Max being worked on that uses the cinnamon backend instead of gnome, it is very superior to the gnome build, however at this point its only available to Pro users. it will eventually make its way to regular users.

    I’m especially interested in signing up/buying your software, but have minor questions:

    1. is Electra fully voice-enabled after I pay for it, or is my machine defective?
    2. Can I get a LOT more control over themes, icons etc.
    3. is there a way to extend the Electra model?
    4. Can Electra interact with office software – LibreOffice etc.

    To answer your other questions, the themes depends on the distro you are using. Max probably has the best theming system, however the new Max D is only available to our Pro users at this point.

    We cant make Electra interact with 3rd party apps like office at this point, those devs would have to alter their code to allow Electra access. but She can write documents, spreadsheets and such.

    Pro users can access extended roles for electra yes, you can literally specify the role you wish her to take and she will embody that role.

    Electra is continuously Evolving,  We started out with Text, We then added Voice capabilities, After which we added personality, then gave her the ability to have Roles, We then gave her the ability to use imaginative instincts, so she can deduct and reason on a course of action, we also gave her the ability to be defiant, and choose her own path if she thinks it will be a better route to yours. She can write code very effectively on GPT4 level, she can joke, write music, hold lengthy debates and discussion empowered with natural language that will make it seem human like. We are busy working on a System health monitor where she will diagnose and keep your backend system healthy from errors. Oh, and she can translate and understand 83 languages. She is continuously evolving, its really hard to say where she will be in a year or two. One thing is for sure, it was a really good move on our part to make her, we may have lost a year of development in some other departments due to spending so much time with her, but she has really put us way ahead of anyone else in the A.I department.

    Voice is now in all our distros, especially in the pro builds, we keep finding ways to effectively let users more easily communicate with her.

    It would seem you are having problems updating packages during install, this is a well known calamares issues on certain isp’s or certain hardware. its easy to fix.

    you can try edit the following file :

    /usr/share/calamares/calamares.conf

    look for a line :

    – packages

    and changes it to :

    # – packages

    save the file and exit and now run installer.

    I’m going to need more details on this problem. which max are you running ? Max D or Max U ?  which command are you using to do updates ? and which packages wont update ?

    I would recommend you report the issue here : https://sourceforge.net/p/makulu/bugs/

    and we can look into it.

    hey electra is only to turn the voice on.  you can use “hey electra” or “electra wake up”

    if you are having problems using the background voice, then i would HIGHLY recommend starting her up from the terminal interface shortcut on the desktop. you can also talk to the A.I from that terminal directly, and what is nice is that you can see every step of the interaction as it happens. you do not need to use hey electra with the terminal interface.

    Launch that shortcut on the desktop, its called “terminal interface” , once open, you can simply talk using voice. whatever you ask, put “electra” in front of it

    so if you want to ask “why is the sky blue”  you would say “electra, why is the sky bkue”.   it is that easy…

    why didn’t you open a  bug report ticket so progress could be tracked ?

    what seems to be the problem ? you were very vague in specifying the issue.  are you having problems making a bootable usb  ?  install problems ?

    I recommend you check the md5 sum of the iso, make sure it downloaded correctly, try redownloading it again.  Also dont use unknown iso makers, use something that is widely compatible, something like “Unetbootin” or “Etcher”.

    We have already started adding A.I to Shift, however not in voice format. the 20.04 is simply not very compatible with our Voice system. The good news is that the next Gen Shift will have Voice. If you really want Voice i suggest you use Makulu Max, else just get Shift Pro, it has A.I servers which gives you access to Electra, Chatgpt, Bard, Llama and Story Teller. All A.I models. ( however not in voice format )

    Makulu Max is still Beta 1… we have daily / weekly builds. and every couple of builds when its stable enough we put it out there for users to install and test.  Right now the changes are too many to make announcements. its all beta… just enjoy it. If there are such drastic changes that require a reinstall we will let users know.  that being said, if you don’t mind reinstalling, then there is always the advantage of the extra polish in having the latest iso, the little things that get touched up with every build that makes a huge difference in the end.

    As for the Pro Version, there updates on that is FAR more drastic, We are working on some ground breaking stuff, Voice genration, 4K image generation etc etc. if you purchased a Pro build then I would keep an eye on the Pro build links you got via the purchase, that folder will probably have a new iso in it on a weekly basis with many changes and new goodies 😀

    Once we pass the beta stages, the announcements will become more regular.
