Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 3 Shiny

Hello.

I have a bug with network-manager. It doesn't ask me root privileges for 
changing interface properties, and doesn't save manually entered network 
settings, e.g. IP adress, netmask, gateway. 

But i use virtual host on VmWare, maybe this is the source of problem. For now, 
i found temporary troubleshoot, using ifconfig command directly.

Subject: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 3 Shiny

 Hi,
 
 The Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 3 is now available. Don't forget that it's build
 with Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) which is still in Alpha state of development,
 so same warnings :
 
 Pre-releases of Lucid are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable
 system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even
 frequent breakage.  They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers
 and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.
 
 We passed Feature Freeze, that mean most of the features should now be
 available. It's now time for testing and fixing bugs.
 
 New features since Alpha 2 :
 * Main changes in the seed :
  - chromium for the browser
  - gnome-mplayer for the videos
  - network-manager for the network
 
 * pcmanfm2, the rewrite of the file-manager, is now used by default.
 
 * New artwork made by Rafael Laguna.
 
 * A new session (Lubuntu-Netbook), which launched lxlauncher. You need
 to logout, select Lubuntu-Netbook session instead of Lubuntu, and enter
 login ubuntu without password.
 
 Known bugs:
 * If you test on a USB, the first screen will freeze for a moment when
 you click on Try Lubuntu  Just wait, it will continue as normal.
 
 * Bug reported during testing :
 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/SubTeams/TestingSubTeam
 
 * Specific pages for pcmanfm2 bugs :
 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/SubTeams/TestingSubTeam/pcmanfm2Testing
 
 If you want to create a bootable usb system, please use the usb creator
 directly on Ubuntu.  
 
 Please follow the testing process described on this page :
 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/SubTeams/TestingSubTeam . You can also
 report problems and bugs relative to the tests on this page.

 Hi,
 Sorry to disturb the lubuntu mailing list with such a question, but since
 lubuntu is using chromium officially, this might be a relevant topic here,
 too.

 I noticed that in lucid, sun-java6 was removed, only openjdk is in the
 repos. Can anybody point me to any information about how to enable/configure
 chrome/chromium in lucid, so that I can load applets with openjdk6
 (idedtea6)? Is it possible at all? Couldn't find any useful info regarding
 this issue.

 Any idea or information is appreciated.
 Thanks

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 3 Shiny

2010-02-26 Thread Leszek Lesner
Hi,

here are some bugs I noticed(from the LiveCD so far):

- Boot Screen of the LiveCD is not fully localized (the first two entries Try 
Lubuntu and Install Lubuntu) (misses on the Bug Repot Testing Page) 
- Borderless windows (like the small mixer window that appears after clicking 
the soundpanel applet) have borders (that allows them to even close the 
soundpanel applet and it won't open up again) 
- clicking on the trash icon in pcmanfm2 gives an error message (operation 
not supported) (moved files won't show up)
- pcmanfm2 after open folder as root : it opens up but is missing the warning 
that you are working with root rights now
- applications:/// is not working (I know it is still work in progress)
- Are the PATHs alright ? Trying to run arp -a as user gives me an error that 
it is in /usr/sbin and /usr/sbin is not in path. (It wasn't there before in 
ubuntu. Did they change/fixed there security policy ?)
- pcmanfm2 misses translation (I know is still coming but I don't want to not 
mention it so that we don't forget about this)
- same for gnumeric
- pcmanfm2 desktop creating new document or folder does not work
- pcmanfm2 still misses to lighten up font color and icon if you choose to cut 
out a file (only a optical glitch)
-pcmanfm2 sorting files and folders(particullary ascending and descending) 
does not work in every view or sometimes simply does nothing (seems not 
reproducable but happens unoccasionaly)
- pcmanfm2: A problem I have with detailed list view is that I cannot access 
easily the properties of the current open folder. If you have a folder with 
lots of files you are not able to rightclick on a free space. The only 
solution press go up and right click the folder you where in to get to the 
properties. Possible solution: Create a folder icon in front of the adressbar 
and make it useable like a normal icon folder (drag n drop, right click etc.)


These are the bugs I noticed so far in a quick 15 minute test. 
 
One big feature request for pcmanfm2 (future releases not crucial to this 
lubuntu release):
Add a right click submenu that opens up the folder content when hovering. This 
is a very nice feature that was originally integrated in BeOS and would make 
working on desktop and in folders amazingly fast.

[Lubuntu-desktop] quick run of lubuntu a3

2010-02-26 Thread Roger Dean

hi folks

thanks very much for alpha 3 - great fun. here are a couple of things 
i've noticed on a regular partition install, thinkpad x60s


1) when i go to language settings, it asks me to install more packages. 
when i agree, it downloads much stuff including openoffice packages...


2) logged out of lubuntu DE and then in to lubuntu netbook DE. logged 
out and tried to log back in to regular DE. was unable to click cursor 
into username / password box


3) tried to edit date/time settings - unlock button does nothing

4) install gave me pcmanfm 0.9 - is this correct?

5) is mtpaint the finally chosen image editor? to my mind it's visually 
very dated...


6) love the speed... :-)

cheers all
Roger

2010-02-26 Thread Jo Gerb
another quick test: the alpha runs great, fast and quite stable.  Some
problems with pcmanfm2 , but its still in developement so thats okay (for
example no auto-mount of usb drives, and i couldn't mount my usb-sticks at
all).
the new design is great.
I also like Leszek's idea: is it too late for including that, or is it still
possible? if yes, we should do that.

Alpha 3

Live session runs in 128MB RAM but launching an application crashes it,  
not surprising really.


Install takes about 1½ hours, not bad considering lack of speed and  
memory, slow(4x) CD drive as well.


Neither CDs or flash drives auto-mount, though the floppy drive now  
appears.


The panel can’t be moved to the top, with out editing the config file nor  
does transparency work any more either.  This used to work in Alphas 1  2.


I’ll report more as it’s used more.

 Hey team,

 We should think about the games in Lubuntu. I think that with a little
 cards-game (like solitaire) and a reaction-game (like snake) most of our
 users would be happy. Maybe we also could add a little puzzle-game and
 something like Space Invaders, but we have to remember that there's not that
 much free space left. We now have to choose some good games with no or just
 some dependencies that run fast on old hardware. Do you have any ideas?

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 3 Shiny

2010-02-26 Thread Phill Whiteside
Much better :-)

Just been having a general play (importing accounts to pidgin and chromium
etc).

I did notice that x-chat is there as an IRC agent. When I was running it
with 10.04 Ubuntu, I found it quite greedy for processor time (3 seconds /
10 seconds) - My laptop fan was running quite a lot.

Since changing to pidgin for IRC, I have a much quieter computer (and an
un-burned lap)

As pidgin is going to be shipped, is x-chat required ? I'm just wondering
what affect it was Vs pidgin on lower spec processors.

I know that disk mounting was mentioned, but does / is lubuntu going to have
the equivalent of Places to provide a GUI for mounting partitions, it is
quite conceivable for a low specification computer to be dual booting.

Apart from that, absolutely fantastic !!!

Regards,

Phill.
