However, I did have a suggestions regarding the LXDE Clock settings. On a
default install %R is what the clock is set at, many PC users are more  
used to the standard time that is used in Windows, on phones, watches  
and other devices. Currently military time is the standard. I would like  
to propose a change to how time is displayed on the taskbar. I think  
%l:%M %p is another format that more people are used to. Which looks  
like (7:37 PM ) when it is displayed. To find out how to do this I had  
to look it up, which is fine
because I am a bit more technical. Another idea if changing the time  
perhaps a dropdown box could be used here to allow users to change the  
style of the time display. It would be much more intuitive for new  
users, I consider this another of the small papercuts that this Ubuntu  
derivative has.


I have to admit the clock is a bit of a faff to alter and really could be  
better.  Personally I think the unambiguous 24 hour clock is the best  
default setting and hate having to change phones, etc. to use it.  A  
drop-down menu with a couple of preset options would make life easier.



Thanks for your time, I really do appreciate the effort you guys put in  
and will try to chime in from time to time if I have any thoughts on  
discussions in the mailing list.


Thank you, it's ideas like this that go to make Lubuntu better, as it's  
these 'little' things that tend to annoy people the most.  Feel free to  
chime in as often as you wish.  We also have an IRC channel at #lubuntu on  
freenode.net if you feel you have anything more urgent to discuss.

[Lubuntu-desktop] [Bug 697694] [NEW] Lubuntu installation crashes

2011-01-05 Thread Launchpad Bug Tracker
Tran Duy Hung (tranduyhung) has assigned this bug to you for ubiquity in ubuntu:

Binary package hint: ubiquity

I tried installing Lubuntu 10.10 but the installation crashed and it
said to report a bug with two files attached: partman, and syslog. The
thing is that I can only attach one file, how do I attach the other.
