Hi everyone,

This is my first email to the list and this is my first test ever so please,
be patient :)

I have two Test Desktop PCs, each with P4 @3.0GHz but one with 2GB RAM and
the other with 512MB RAM (with the ability to share its RAM).

*Test No.1*
PC: P4 3.0GHz - 2GB RAM - 40GB IDE HDD - Intel Graphics Card *(driver=i915)
Media: Lubuntu 11.10 Beta 2 LiveCD - 32 bit

1- Try Lubuntu without installation does not work and drop you to CLI.
Typing "*starx*"  command will take you to LXDE Desktop with LXDE wallpaper
instead of Lubuntu Desktop. There is an icon on the LXDE Desktop to Install

Reboot done ...

2- Install Lubuntu Option > Quit > Quit > Lubuntu Desktop. Please note that
I used to do the same with Lubuntu 11.04.

3- I chose "Something Else" and created a new Partition (sda9) with
*3.91GB*from un-allocated disk space. Please note that I'm
Multi-Booting several
Distros on this test PC. GRUB was installed into sda9 not MBR (sda).
Installation was smooth and errors-free.

4- Choose a Picture during the installation process simple does nothing.
Even when I took a picture, it didn't show it on the preview small box.

Apparently, it's a new feature but I'm not sure how does it work?

5- "Removable Medium is inserted" pop-up window during installation. Not
sure if that's a bug or something?!

6- Continue Testing OR Reboot > Reboot > Please remove installation media
and press Enter - Not Responding when Press Enter > Force Reboot -
Ctrl+Alt+Del > "Press Enter to reboot msg" > Reboot Done.

Not sure if that's an error or something but I recall I got the same with
other LiveCD and other Distros, mainly Ubuntu-Based.

Installation done ... rebooted.

7- Wallpapers are really nice and getting better. Good job :)

8- Sometimes, the menu doesn't disappear even after making a selection:
Clicking on the desktop does nothing. I had to go to menu and click there
twice and then it disappeared.

9- Looks like "Enable Networking" and "Enable Wireless" does nothing:
It's not 'ticked' or 'selected'. Looks like a bug?

10- Customize Look and Feel > Window Border > No Preview

11- Some apps are not installed. I suggest to include these apps. IMHO, I
see it's good to have these:
a- *numlockx*
b- *dnsmasq *(http://forum.lxde.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=31326)
c- *GParted*
d- *Flash Player*

12- LSC installed:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lubuntu-desktop/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-software-center

I'm finding it a bit hard to deal with. For example, you need to Double
Click on a Category and it takes sometime until the contents show up. Search
Box is disabled until you choose a Category and that means if you don't know
in which Category the application or program you want is included then you
need to select "All". I was looking for Firefox to install but couldn't
easily find it because I got many selections. Not to mention I got some
Crash Error and it was asking to report this problem.

13- Crash Report sometimes with Chromium and PCManFM.

14- I see too many themes, widget, etc are installed by default. I suggest
(IMHO) to remove the extra themes and give users the choice to install these
after installing Lubuntu 11.10 in case they want to. Perhaps PPA for all
these extra themes? won't that reduce some size? perhaps I'm wrong and it's
just a suggestion.


Ok, that's all for now.
I'm also done with two other tests on the other PC, one from LiveCD and the
other from LiveUSB. Got some stuff to share with you but guess that will be
later because I must go now.

Thank you for your time :)
