[Lubuntu-desktop] Keyboard weirdness, Lubuntu Lucid Beta 3 - very fringe case

2010-04-27 Thread C David Rigby

Hello all,

I've spotted what appears to be a bug in the installer that can be run 
from the Live CD desktop environment if one chooses Try Lubuntu without 
installing from the main menu. Or the problem could be in the desktop 
environment itself. It is such a fringe case, though, that I am not sure 
if it is worth pursuing. It is 100% reproducible on this hardware.


The system is one I have scraped together while I am stuck in Italy. I 
plan to use it for testing, as I have a more powerful laptop at my 
disposal. The system is a home built PC based on a 440BX motherboard, 
and it has a French keyboard.


To produce the error:


1. Boot the Lubuntu Lucid Beta 3 Live CD
2. Accept the default language, English, from the boot menu
3. Press F3 and select France for the keymap
4. Choose the Try Lubuntu without installing from the primary boot menu
5. At the desktop, start the installer
6. On the keyboard selection screen of the installer (step 3) the 
installer guesses France - Alternative

7. Press the radio button for Choose your own
8. Select France from the right-hand window list
9. Try typing text in the test field; the keyboard produces no output
10. Open leafpad or LXTerminal; still no output from the keyboard
11. Quit the installer and restart the system from the Logoff menu 
item; the CD ejects, but the system does not restart.


Later steps in installation will require the keyboard, I assume, so at 
this point installation has failed.


Note: if leafpad or LXTerminal is used prior to starting the installer, 
then the problem does not occur. Text appears in these apps. Once the 
installer is started, text appears in the test field of step 3,

Workaround:

1. Do not use F3 to choose a keymap; or
2. Open leafpad or another text-input app, type something, then start 
the installer.


So, is this important enough for a formal bug report? Should I try the 
Ubuntu Lucid Beta to see if the problem occurs there also?


Your comments appreciated,
David

There have been a couple of 'strange' language problems, involving French  
 English, noticed by Phillw and myself, on Beta 2.  I would try it with  
Ubuntu if you can, but I suspect it is the way the Lubuntu ISO is set up.   
I have reported a bug where all the languages (139) are installed to the  
hard drive. I think it is worth reporting anyway as anything that messes  
up the install could mean one less user.

Sorry for being quite on this. I spend last days trying to fix it for
the final release, but the way I generate the iso is quite limited. And
I don't want to spend too much time on it if we migrate to the Ubuntu
architecture for the next release.

If I don't find a solution, we need to chose one solution : keeping all
the languages on the CD (but installing them all) or don't ship them and
having a live-cd limited for language support.

Julien Lavergne

[Lubuntu-desktop] PCManfm 0.9.5 + libfm 0.1.11 beta 3 are released

2010-04-27 Thread PCMan
Hi list,
Here comes pcmanfm 0.9.5 + libfm 0.1.11.
This is the 3rd beta release. Most critical bugs are mostly fixed.
The area of uncertainty is smb network share.
Because we don't have smb network here to test it's difficult to debug
this part.
Theoratically, if gvfs is configured and executed correctly, smb
should be available.
Anyways, please test!

Changes:
1. In trash can now you can choose Restore in popup menu.
2. All trash bin in the strings are replaced by trash can for consistency.
3. Fix bugs that cause deletion of wrong file in single click mode.
4. Select filename part only and exclude extension name when renaming.
5. Files on remote filesystems can now be deleted even when trash can is in use.
6. Detailed list view now works well and is not affected by bug of
ExoIconView + gtk+ = 2.18.
7. Able to change mode of wallpaper with pcmanfm2 --wallpaper-mode
along with --set-wallpaper
8. Fix various crashes.

The next major release may be beta 4 or rc1 and it will be available
in early May.
Cheers!

 the desktop environment of lubuntu still needs translators. It would
 be great if there are more people who could join the translation
 project on http://wiki.lxde.org/en/Category:Translations 

Thanks for the reminder :)
Also, if you want to translate other parts of Lubuntu, please go to

[Lubuntu-desktop] main ubuntu forum

2010-04-27 Thread Phill Whiteside
Hi,

as promised I've had a chat with a very nice man regarding Lubuntu and the
main ubuntu support forum. I see that we have two options available:

1) A Lubuntu 'tag' much the same as the xubuntu / kubuntu etc. tags work
2) A separate sub-forum.

#1 is the easier one to achieve as #2 has the problems of the mods then
having to herd stuff from the general area onto the lubuntu area. If you
feel that #1 is un-satisfactory you may ask the Forum Council to discuss it
at the next meeting but
I do not think we have a separate xubuntu or kubuntu section, so good luck
with that =)
was the reply.

I hope I have not exceeded what I said I would do in 'asking around' but,
for the lubuntu tag I got
I will ask the rest of the staff re: lubuntu tag, should be easy (I hope)

Personally, I'd prefer the lubuntu tag rather than us being hidden away in
some dark corner of the forum, it will encourage people to read about
lubuntu  hopefully try it out. As always, your views on the two options are
needed.

Regards,

Phill.
