Many (including me) were particularly annoyed with the introduction of the PR1.2 menu, which had slower (much slower) kinetic scrolling.

Here's a modified hildon-desktop package which has this reversed, and includes all fixes post PR1.2 (call UI glitching etc...).

Download link: http://mohammadag.xceleo.org/public/...+0m5_armel.deb
It will not install via the application manager

Package should only be installed on PR1.2, it will not conflict with future updates (if any).

To install the package (rootsh and wget have to be installed):
Code:
root
wget http://mohammadag.xceleo.org/public/maemo/debfiles/hildon-desktop_kinetic_2.2.138-1+0m5_armel.deb
dpkg -i hildon-desktop_kinetic_2.2.138-1+0m5_armel.deb
killall hildon-desktop
If you can't/don't want to install wget, download it to your PC, copy it to the "root" directory of your "Nokia N900" device (/home/user/MyDocs) via USB/ssh then
Code:
root
dpkg -i /home/user/MyDocs/hildon-desktop_kinetic_2.2.138-1+0m5_armel.deb
killall hildon-desktop
An apt-get upgrade will reinstall the PR1.2 one (possibly because it prefers versions in the repo), so you may want to pin it.

Code:
echo "Package: hildon-desktop
Pin: release a=unstable 
Pin-Priority: 1001" >> /etc/apt/preferences

You should add this to bugzilla, as a solution for the next release of Maemo 5 update!

Apparently it was intended.

Increase decceleration of TidyFingerScroll because some users felt like in space.

Already started a community SSU for the N900 which includes new updated packages, details about that later.

Nice, works charmingly after a manual download and installation. For some reason it gives an error using the wget approach.

Code:
Nokia-N900:/home/user/MyDocs# wget http://mohammadag.xceleo.org/public/maemo/debfiles/hildon-desktop_kinetic_2.2.138-1+0m5_armel.deb
--09:53:38--  http://mohammadag.xceleo.org/public/maemo/debfiles/hildon-desktop_kinetic_2.2.138-1+0m5_armel.deb
           => `hildon-desktop_kinetic_2.2.138-1+0m5_armel.deb'
Resolving mohammadag.xceleo.org... failed: Temporary failure in name resolution.
How do you compile Nokia specific apps yourself? I see there are some progress on some default apps what is provided beyond PR 1.2. Is there any tutorial around?

Thanks.

Not sure why wget failed for you, works for me
Same way you would compile any other packages, fixes I've found at the moment are for hildon-desktop, hildon-home, hildon-status-menu and hildon-application-manager.
What I'm interested in is the new pulseaudio package, but that hasn't been released yet

Anyways, I'll post more about this when I post links to it (SSU)
