 Dear all,

 Launchpads/Canonical policies demand that the lubuntu team becomes
 moderated. More info below. I had to change the group to moderated.

 Thanks,

 Mario




I can totally understand the policy but wondered if there was a
different solution. Would it be useful to keep lubuntu-desktop open
and switch the PPA to another team like
https://launchpad.net/~lubuntu-packaging for example? For mine I'd
really only want to see the developers having access to upload to the
PPA anyway, especially now we're growing in size with the nature of
becoming official. Moderating the lubuntu-desktop group still means
there are hundreds of people able to upload to the PPA unless I don't
understand Launchpad teams properly (which is also highly likely).

Hi Everyone,

old Windose ME machine that came with AMD processor, 12GB hard drive

to bring the RAM up to 192mb.  I installed Lubuntu using the mini.iso. 
 It took a while but the install completed.


The problem is that after rebooting the system I get the following

After that, the Lubuntu splash screen is briefly displayed and then

Any ideas?

try to enter into the grub (you have to hit some keys if it doesn't show

that says L/Ubuntu * with Linux * (* means the version of the system, 
11.10 with linux 3 or so on), enter e (to edit the entry) and add 
force=1 after quiet splash.

this because the message says:

upgrade BIOS or use force=1

This mean that you grub is too old for Lubuntu, you have to upgrade it, 
or you can add force=1 at the start to avoid the problem.
if it works i will tell you how to make it persistent (by default when 
you edit an entry the changes you made aren't persistent).

I found that to enter GRUB you simply press and hold SHIFT.  I added the

did the same thing.Lubuntu splash and then the screen goes blank.

2011-11-17 Thread (Rafael Laguna)
Of course I'm serious. My priorities, right now, are achieving a perfect
integration with Ubuntu in almost all aspects of Lubuntu identity,
including brand marks, colour specs, design lines, advertising (if any),
social networks presence, etc. Also, a good entrance, such as a good
website is, could do the downloading process more easy for end-users. In
case of Lubuntu Team, that's not me, is Canonical who adverted that we
must be close to them (you can check the design LInes published at
design.canonical.com).

All of this makes TOO a good distro, not only the code. And I must be
clear about I'm not deprecating the coder's work, but you must admit
that design is always the last everybody think in for everything, and
that's a big mistake. Ok, an icon is a tiny thing, but I'm trying to
make the Lubuntu image rock solid and homogeneous for three years, with
not too much success, I must to say.

That's right, this is the right place for discussions about the distro.
And I dont want anybody be angry of my words (in fact, it was a bit a

graphic design or advertising are powerful tools for that purpose. And,
I'd like to use this mailing thread to anounce a few things I've got in
mind, and I need your opinion.

- a design / graphics / publishing line cheat is under development (like
Kubuntu or Ubuntu's) for those things like signatures, wallpapers,
stickers, and other things that doesn't really fit in marketing (or
maybe yes) and make it distributable for you all (this includes
presentation templates, mail signatures, etc).

- a lubuntu.net mockup is almost ready, but I don't really know if we
can change that. And that's not all, the idea for this is providing a
nice set of mirrors, or at  least, being more concrete about where and
what to download. A lot of users were confused.

That's all, for the moment. What do you think?

[Lubuntu-desktop] Some considerations about the Precise theme

2011-11-17 Thread Stephen Smally

  
  
Hi, i've got some consideration
about the future Precise theme for Lubuntu.

Lubuntu should have a most professional and clean look as
possible, so:

1 - i like a lot the default light grey panel in 10.04 and
10.10, and i think is a good compromise between style and
professionality:

2 - we should use a monochrome logo for the menu (+1 close to
ubuntu), suggestion:

3 - i like the default openbox theme in Oneiric, but the borders
of the windows should be grey, not black.
suggestion RGB: 3c3c3c

Stop reading my mind! :D

Well, I don't like to repeat myself, and one black (and polemic)
dark taskbar is enough. So yes, we're going that way. More Adwaita
style, even Clearlooks (not looking sooo eighties, of course).

Anyway, you'll have time for choose colours, borders and everything
else. But you'll know that the wallpaper must be BLUE ;)

I'll post some mockups in a week (or two).

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] logo

2011-11-17 Thread Mario Behling
HI Rafael,

cool. Do you have a draft of the mockup?

The current site is based on the Ubuntu Drupal theme. It seems this project
is not so active anymore and there are better theme options.

Currently, we have a few people who have admin access and can change
things. It seems though that the theme has several bugs and every time
someone changes something there are broken links or images do not work. It
is a quite boring task to fix that again and again.

So, I want to throw the theme over board and implement a completely new
theme: light, fast and clearly integrated. Looking forward to receive your
ideas for the mockup.

- Mario

Thanks Mario.

Currently, the situation is not very nice, the mailing list is not open 
anymore, and the PPA is too common. We have to change the mailing or the PPA 
location, or both.

About the mailing list, the best solution is probably to swith to one (or 1 for 
user help, and 1 for devel ?) on https://lists.ubuntu.com/, since it's a more 
standart mailing list (no need to be member of the team).

The PPA will probably diseapears with the time, we need more specialized PPAs, 
instead of one with many varous stuff in it.

Regards,
Julien Lavergne

 Last week we wrote to tell you that on 2011-11-23 we will be changing the
 membership policy of your Launchpad team lubuntu-desktop to moderated.
 We're doing this to protect the people who use that team's Personal Package
 Archive (PPA).
 
 Right now, lubuntu-desktop has an open membership policy, meaning anyone
 can join the team and upload potentially malicious packages to the PPA.
 
 We strongly recommend that you change your team's membership policy now and
 audit the team's membership to make sure that you trust each member.
 
 You can change the team's membership policy here:
 
  https://launchpad.net/~lubuntu-desktop/+edit
 
 Otherwise, you can delete the team's PPA and retain the open membership
 policy.
 
 Before you can create a new team PPA, a team's membership policy must be
 either moderated or restricted. Your team was created before we improved
 the security around team PPAs.
 
 These changes won't have any affect on the team's current members. However
 it does mean that you'll have to approve new team members.
 
 There's more about Launchpad's team membership policies here:

 Email feedb...@launchpad.net if you have any questions.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Some considerations about the Precise theme

2011-11-17 Thread Jean-Pierre Vidal Piesset

 But you'll know that the wallpaper must be BLUE ;)

I would like to propose... Lubuntu going for *GREEN*!

Reasons?
- It goes a little more with the standart of efficient SO (this is
important since it's the OS that most fits with the planet :)
- It differencies us from Kubuntu  Xubuntu (also blue...) giving Lubuntu a
self image to the world (see! it's the 'green' ubuntu! - no man, it's
'lubuntu')

Could be a dark green, to match well with black  grey and make a
sober/cool look.

I know that for corporative reasons we should go for blue... BUT imho i
think that's a paradigm that must fall (ubuntu nor mac are blue!)

Just think about it and tell what you think!

110% in agreement on that one. I usually end up tweaking everything 
green anyways.
