Hello people, today we present a new method to identify if we are using Deepin with a stable base or an unstable base, this after a failure in Deepin 15.10.1 unstable that causes the command "lsb_release" to return the parameter Codename with incorrect information.
We have prepared the following procedure to make it easier for you to identify if you are using Deepin stable or unstable since in some situations this information could be of importance. If you need to know the exact version of the system you have, please perform the following steps:
Download the following script and save it to Desktop:
Once downloaded, please verify that the file checkdeepin.sh it's on your desk. Then minimize all windows to see the Desktop.
Right-click on an empty spot on the desktop and then click the open option in terminal.
Run the command:
You will get one of the following responses:
Se ha detectado Deepin basado en Debian inestable.
Se ha detectado Deepin basado en Debian estable.
You might also get other answers if you perform the procedure on another distribution or if you have errors in your system configuration.
That's all for today, you can get related information in the following links.
