Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] PPA for lubuntu-software-center

2011-09-11 Thread Jean Austin Rodriguez
Alright, sorry to bother everyone with two consecutive emails. I stumbled on
this how-to from
WebUpd8.orghttp://www.webupd8.org/2011/09/install-lubuntu-software-center.html
and
edited my LSC.ini in ~/.config/lsc/LSC.ini removing all the spaces before
the lines. And guess what? The program launched without errors. Beautiful!

Sharing the joy,

  Hi all,
 I'm running Lubuntu 11.04 (Natty) and it seems to run fine from the menu,
 not tried the cli, but will when i fire up my laptop. The only bug I get is
 when I load it up it stay greyed out until I select Expert mode.

 Well done to all the numerous developers, who make Lubuntu a great OS for
 computers that should be on the scrap heap!

 Hi everyone.

 I'm Jean Austin of Ubuntu Team Philippines. I read about this interesting
 news in OMG! Ubuntu! online a few days ago and decided to try it. I am
 running a virtualized Lubuntu 11.10 that I recently upgraded to test the
 beta. However, like Matthew, I encountered the same error message when
 launching Lubuntu Software Center in a Terminal (with and without 'sudo'). I
 also tried launching it from the LXDE menu but unfortunately had problems
 too.

 I tried filing a bug report but an error box appeared and said [Problem in
 ... lubuntu-software-center] The problem cannot be reported: This is not a
 genuine Ubuntu package.

 Probably missed something to add or do?

 I'll try some things more and would report to this list as soon as I can.


 Glad to be of help anytime, anywhere. Regards to everyone in the team,

 Jean Austin / Philippines


 P.S. Is there a way we can export this email thread to Launchpad as a
 whole bug report?

 Ah well,

  there goes my last few brain cells. I thought it was for 11.10 and was
 not aware it was being back-ported in a complete test version that has bugs
 back to 11.04. Still, you learn something new every day :)

  If some one could please clarify this for me, I'd really appreciate it!

Already got reponses from leogg! and llelectronics2k, both reported that

Can we move forward like this or do we need to figure out another solution?

Hum, that's interesting. I didn't see the comments. In this case, we can
probably assume that any CC 2.0 is CC 3.0. Btw I think the 2 licenses
are very close,  so it should not be a problem.

Only remain the wallpaper with no clear license.

Thanks Alexander for the quick answer :)

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Audio Conf for Lubuntu

2011-09-11 Thread PCMan
For ALSA, a potential candidate GUI mixer is gamix.
For PulseAudio, maybe we can use pama.
Both are written in pure C language IIRC.
Please evaluate them if possible.
They are not the best ones, but at least they will be better then xterm -e
alsamixer.
Other ones I can find are written in python or some other scripting stuff.

 I know we are pass the freeze, but maybe this shortcut could be added to
 preferences menu for 11.10. I think for a lot of people it's useful to
 control the mic and all that stuff in alsamixer. Plus, there's nothing to
 add but this little shortcut :)
 And maybe there's a way to show lxterminal without the menus???


 I'm not a fan of the solution, because it will add a non translated entry
 in the menu. It's also not really dynamic (doesn't deal with pulseaudio when
 it's running), and alsamixser is not really user-friendly (it's still a
 command line program which emulate a GUI).

 I didn't plan to fix this problem with this solution. My idea was to enable
 the Configure button when you right click on the volume applet on the
 panel. So, as it seems to be an annoying bug for people, I take some time to
 implement this. You can test the result by adding the ppa :
 ppa:lubuntu-dev/staging . The lxpanel will be available in a few minutes.

 This is the behavior :
 - If pulseaudio is detected, it will try to launch the gnome-sound
 preference if it's installed. If not, it will look at pavucontrol.
 - Else, it will try to launch gnome-alsamixer, and if it's not on the
 system, try to launch xterm -e alsamixer.

 It will offer a GUI for sound configuration, with a bit of dynamism, and
 without adding an English entry in the menu.

 Please test it (you need to reboot after installing lxpanel) and give us
 feedback about this solution.

 Julien Lavergne

Hi Ali,

as with all things how do I get involved, please head over to
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/GettingInvolved that has information on
getting in touch with the various teams within Lubuntu.

glad to see you are still keen to get involved :)

 Hello everyone,

 Please excuse my question but is there any chance for me to contribute in

 All these artists have been informed and hopefully there won't be any

  Unfortunately, the images have still license issues :

 According to the flickr pages, the following images uses CC BY-SA 2.0,
 but only the 3.0 should be use for Debian and Ubuntu repository :

 The last one doesn't seems to use an open license :

 Unless it's fixed, we can't include them.

[Lubuntu-desktop] Fw: Re: Release meeting status

Forgot the team, sorry.

I am gaining . very slowly.

Just to clarify: I was not complaining, just trying to point out a problem that 
I've not had time to follow up on properly.

I should have my testing box running again soon. I have most of the data 
copied, I now just need to set up some symlinks.

I hate to mention the kitchen. Hint: don't try to mix lacquer and enamel 
products when refinishing metal cabinets ;^(

That would be very helpful. I already checked to be sure the Ubuntu alternate 
image worked OK.

I need to know if the most recent Lubuntu alternate daily image still produces 
a borked software sources UI.

If so, immediately after installing you should be able to just run ubuntu-bug 
debian-installer. Then just explain what's wrong.

I am gaining on this end and I'll be able to follow up prior to Beta 2 :^)

I'm just an independent iso-tester and ATM I'm rebuilding my kitchen while also 
rebuilding my testing computer to hopefully be a more efficient iso-tester ;^)

I was hoping someone else could jump in and help figure that out and/or file a

IMHO that looks fine. The download link displays the official Ubuntu DL links, 
and the md5sum link displays the actual Ubuntu official info. I think now that 
we're officially part of Ubuntu it's always best to use their info.

I'm not sure how to handle older links, like  Alpha 3. That's a dead link, the 
same is true for Ubuntu itself. Outside of hardcore testers who wants an old 
image anyway ;^)

Of course this will all change with 12.04 and beyond because we'll always want 
to provide DL info for all supported versions of Lubuntu. Once official support 
ends then it should, and must, get harder to find those images.

As always, thanks for all you do,

In fact when the LTS releases have point-upgades, eg: 10.04.4, they also pop

as there are various incarnations of lubuntu (i386, amd64, alt.) each comes

 I'm a newbie and I really love my new lubuntu. But I have some
 problems here. I can't open my 'chm' and 'pdb' files. Is there any
 I can do? ...


Yes, these files are probably readable in Lubuntu.  There are things you
can do to help us find out exactly what they are.  Then, we can help you
to install and try out some programs that will work with them.

On 09/11/2011 10:18 AM, Phill Whiteside wrote:

 pdb seems to be the file extension used by PDA's.. ...


The .pdb extension is also used by some versions of Microsoft Visual
C/C++ as a Program Database.  In general, across multiple platfrorms,
an extension .xyz does not uniquely identify a file type, even in
Windows it may not uniquely identify a filetype.

Fortunately (!), this is Linux, not Windows.  In Linux, we do not need
to guess what is in a file based on its file extension.  Instead, we can
find out what kind of file it is, based on its contents.  The simple
little utility for doing this is called

  file

So, in LXTerminal, please do

  cd /wherever/the/files/are  # use the real path for your files!
  file *.chm *.pdb

and tell us exactly what the file command outputs.

That output will indicate clearly and specifically what the files really
are.  We will know whether a .pdb file is a PalmOS database, or an
MSVC C/C++ program database, or something else entirely.

Then, once we know what the files are, we can look at what Linux
applications will read and write such files.  Clear, simple, step by
step, logical.  No guessing needed.

If we *want* to guess (for fun?): most likely, the .chm files will be
something like MS Windows HtmlHelp Data, and the .pdb files *may* be
something like DB PalmOS document, or any one of about 22 other PalmOS
file types, or they really may be MSVC program database files.

To read MS Windows HtmlHelp Data (.chm) files, you can use one of many
CHM viewer or converter programs in Linux.  In Lubuntu, I would start with

  sudo apt-get install xchm

for an X-based CHm file viewer, or

  sudo apt-get install chmsee

for a GTK-based viewer, and if you want to convert these files to HTML, try

  sudo apt-get install archmage

Working with PalmOS Document files may be a little trickier, depending
on exactly what kind of PalmOS file they are.  One possibility is an
ebook reader that can read many interesting PDA and ebook files,
fbreader, so

  sudo apt-get install fbreader

might be worth a try.

But again, these are just *guesses* -- we need the output from that file
command, to be able to help with any certainty at all about what these
files truly are.
