 Related to this question is what to do with what is currently the

 I would be happy to see about transferring it to the Lubuntu Team if the
 Lubuntu team does wish to formally take it over...

 In any case, yes, I also think the key is finding the right reasonable
 mix.

 After this operation, 412MB of additional disk space will be used.

 Its just stupidly fat and bloated and doesn't fit with the ethos of

I agree with David. Also anyone who is performing these highly specialized
installations is certainly going to have the knowledge required to open the
command line and sudo apt-get whatever gui or lack thereof he/she wants.

 I actually was not suggesting there should be such a remix.  I was
 suggesting however that one could potentially do this with mini-iso

 and add lxde/lubuntu after.  It can in some cases be useful to have a
 local server gui console.  Another interesting scenario is ltsp.

  Hello.
 
  Just one thing I wanted to note: server GUI is a bad idea. If you want
  server, you install server, if you want a workstation on low-grade
  hardware, you install Lubuntu. If you have low-grade hardware to use as
  a server, you definitely shouldn't be wasting the precious (and, oh, so
  limited!) RAM and CPU resources on GUI instead of serving something.
 
  If someone wants to have lubuntu desktop on server, there's always an
  option of installing server then adding any desktop environment, or
  maybe installing Lubuntu then switching to the server kernel. But I
  think all the possible mix options should not be part of Lubuntu
  installer, nor should there be a separate server+LXDE remix of Lubuntu
  (Ubuntu?)
 
  Regards!

  PS If you don't like vi, you can use nano, it's part of the server
  install and it is WYSIWIG.

  lightweight linux on my netbook and PC.
 
  I am running on Ubuntu 9.10 remix  installed on my MSI Wind U100,
  after I while I started with Apt to install LXDE
  After running on LXDE I was satisfied and very optimistic that  it
  will be one  that  I am looking for.( after a lot of  switching for
  linux to linux)
 
  Here are the problems on the MSI wind U100:
 
  * Filemanager Pcman  0.5.1 on the left windows are drives displayed
  twice. if you click one of the with the same name you will get an
  error-message Directory doesnt exist
  * Wicd it a very nice looking piece but to bad, to while connection
  the the wirelles network (WEP) ofcourse it was validated but I got
  an error message Connection failed:Unable get IP Adress that was
  during the status Obtaining IP address.
  * I have no sound I realize I have no mixer something like that so I
  dont know if its muting or not.
  * FN keys. FN+F4 and FN+F5 is working very well,its for dimming
  the back-light and  FN+F12 sleep mode is working but after wakeup
  its starting to sleep again and again after wakeup
  *My bluetooth is witched on with FN+F11 but no blue-tooth detected
  (sorry I forgot to listed with lsusb before installing ubuntu remix
  again)
  * Harddisk external and flashdisk is working very well.
 
  My Questions,request,Ideas,what I hope very soon or whatever it is.
 
  1. The Lubuntu in alpha stage on iso,when. Ofcourse everybody is
 busy.
  2. Lubuntu on flash disk image because there is alot of netbooks
  without CD or DVD.
  3. Sometimes I got netbook that has an SDcard as HDA is it
  compatible with it ?
  4. I think Lubuntu will be great for creating server from old PC's
  with GUI interface instead having console at from your nose and
  doing that Vi thing.Maybe is there somebody can make a server
  edition. While installing you can choose what of kind of server do
  you want to install.
  5. And nice front-end for backup that can make image of the drives.
  6. Do you guys think that thunderbird and firefox take of computer
  sources especially nower days there is allot of websites based on
  flash  like  farmville it make even windows xp slow.
  7. What is the other syntax like dmesg and lsusb that I can use to
  get info out of my toys and to send to you guys.
  8. Last thing that I want to say is.. I am sorry for starting asking
  allot of questions even the alpha  is not out yet...
 
  Well guys thats it... I hope its enough for the input.

You can also command line install from the mini.iso and then grab the meta

 install it and test the current version. I could not find any iso image

 As a temporary solution what I did, is I first got a masonux distribution
 (9.10 beta2, it's an Ubuntu 9.10 + LXDE distro) and then
 sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

 Any ISO image and/or usb image would do (found some old ones from

 Hi,

 First, I would like to thanks all people for their feedbacks.
 Also, I know people will be disagree about some choices, but we can't
 make all people agreed :) Remember that the goal is to provide a
 distribution ready to use, especially designed for low ressource
 hardware.
 This list can evolve before the final release, but I would like to not
 change it too much, so we can focus on bug fix and integration.
 So, this is the last changes proposal :

 === chromium for the browser ===
 Well, it's not because Chromium is the best, it's more because the
 others options is not really suitable, for different reasons :
 - Firefox have serious performance problem on limited hardware.
 - Midori have limited features, limited upstream ressources (compare to
 others), with not significant ressources gain.

 === gnome-mplayer for videos ===
 There is no reason to keep smplayer which bring extra depends on QT,
 when gnome-mplayer have the same functionalities.

 === network-manager instead of wicd ===
 This was not planned at the first time, but there are the reasons : new
 version of wicd (1.7.0) use 2 instances, and this double the among of
 memory it used. Also, there is some reports that wireless is not
 supported in some cases.
 Network-manager is not perfect, but the support is quite good, and we
 can share the maintenance with other teams. Also, memory usage is not
 that bad, but it's definitely better than wicd.

 === Using pcmanfm2 instead of old pcmanfm ===
 Lubuntu Lucid will be the first real release for Lubuntu. It's not the
 end, but I hope the beginning for it. It makes more sense to use
 directly the futur pcmanfm, than working on the old one which will be
 deprecated very soon.

 For others part, no change. It's mean, keeping Aqualung for music player
 and Sylpheed for e-mail. There was arguments for and against Sylpheed,
 some preferred Claw-Mails. But there is no big arguments for a switch,
 as the memory and CPU usage are the same, and main functionalities are
 in both clients.

 I'll made the changes to the Lubuntu packages and release a testing ISO
 tomorrow or Monday. We will have a complete week to test it, until the
 IRC meeting next Sunday, and do adjustments if it's needed.

 Regards,
 Julien Lavergne

This is shaping up very very well.

  Hi,

 I just created a new testing ISO. This is not an Alpha, but just a
 snapshot of the current work to be able to test more the new features.
 Like others Alpha, you should be aware that it's not considered stable,
 see warnings for Lucid Alpha :

 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.

 Changes seen the Alpha 2 :
 * Main changes in the seed :
  - chromium for the browser
  - gnome-mplayer for the videos
  - network-manager for the network
 * New artwork made by Rafael Laguna. It's not the final theme, but it's
 quite complete, so we can test with a non standard artwork. And I like
 it :)
 * 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:
 * pcmanfm2 is not the default filemanager yet, it need more integration
 to be usable. It is still available by using pcmanfm2
 * 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 :

  Currently booting, will let you know in 3-4 hours whether a fresh install
 is a success or not.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Colourchange?

2010-02-17 Thread Dallas Wiebelhaus
+1 4 Blue.

 I still like blue better. for me it doesn't really matter that there
 are othes blue distros, it's just a good looking colour and I gues
 everything's aesthetical with it, unlike with green imo. I mea, it is
 possible to make sth look good with green, but i think it would be
 really dissicult to match it to lubuntu - a very narrow selection of
 green shades is aesthetical for such use, and it matches poorly with
 other colours. I think that even red or purple would do better, but
 that's my personal opinion. maybe gray variations would be nice too,
 or maybe we could mix many colours, instead of keeping everyting in
 one? mixture of blue, dark green, with white, gray and black accents.
 what do you think? I just don't really think it looks good in just
 green. but decision is up to whole community ;)

 2010/2/17 jo franz jo.ge.s...@googlemail.com:
  look, we didnt even agree on the logo in the artwork team. There are so
 many
  ideas. But if you guys say green would be ok or even better than blue,
 the
  artwork-team could concentrate on designing green logos.  just look at
 the
  attachement! these are just some from dozens of ideas.
 
  2010/2/17 Sylkis syl...@gmail.com
 
  I know it's a quickly made paintswitch, but that greeness and metallic
  LXDE logo doesn't really fit imo, maybe a change should go even
  further for a nice result?

   i just made some with kolourpaint... wait, ill attach them
  
   2010/2/17 Glen Bizeau gbiz...@gmail.com
  
   Can we see some quick concepts?
  
   Green is a pleasing color, I personally prefer dark themes :)

hey guys, someone from the artworkteam had a really good idea
 today:
what
about a change from blue to green? we would have to change all the
wallpapers, logos and  the whole design, but i think it would be
worth
the
time. The Kubuntu logo is blue, also the one from Xubuntu - why
shouldn't we
try something new? Lubuntu will be a standalone Distribution - we
don't
have
to take the same colours as the other official ubuntu-derivates.
 The
colour
green would fit nicely with the idea of lxde using less
 resources,
how
jekopsch, the one who had this idea, said.
So what do you think, guys?

  Another suggestion. It would be great to have a notes applications, like
 Tomboy, bu without its resource hungry. So I think XPAD would be great. What
 do you think?

 I don't contest the results but can someone explain how a lighter DE uses
 less power? Is it because the CPU is used less so takes less juice?
 Nice article though. KDE is really bloated and the Kubuntu team is quite
 small.
