Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu could end up like Xubuntu (Heavy Slow)

2009-06-30 Thread Ed Hewitt
I would say LXDE is lighter than Xfce, the LXDE developers seem to think so.
I think 64mb Minimum is enough.

 May help to guide

 I'd say 300Mhz CPU + 192Mb RAM

 we are forgetting our requirements, and getting head of ourselves.

 so now that we are mostly agreed on being small and lightweight, what will
 be the minimum and recommended specs?

 I believe its a bad idea having different versions of Lubuntu, having
 different meta packages of Lubuntu is not what lubutnu needs. Its all about
 lightweight distro. The Ubuntu guidelines requires the distro to have one
 build, lubuntu-desktop.

 All we need to do is make sure that this single meta package is bundled
 with a few lightweight apps for the end user to require out of the box which
 works well with the LXDE environment.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu could end up like Xubuntu (Heavy Slow)

2009-06-30 Thread Ed Hewitt
I too have the same opinion and in the same situation as Glen. I have missed
out on the meetings, since only being involved in Lubuntu since yesterday. I
have looked at the applications list and there is too many, Lubuntu could
end up too heavy. This is one of the reasons I sent my first email off in
the mailing lists.

2009/7/1 Glen Bizeau gbiz...@gmail.com

 Wow,

 I just went through the list if apps, Thats a lot of stuff...

 Personally, I think it should be lighter than this, but I guess thats
 what I get for missing the IRC meeting :)

 Will we have a chance to vote on these things? or do the IRC meetings
 denote final say?

 Glen

  Hi everyone,
 
  Good to see the sudden spike in mailing list activity. I definitely need
  time to follow the threads.
 
  For those unaware, we have had 3 IRC meetings to discuss the goals and
  applications of Lubuntu. The logs are at
  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/IRC%20Meetings. The objective of the
 meeting
  was to narrow down the list of applications, and also to decide the goals
 of
  Lubuntu I urge patience to go through the logs to understand what has
  transpired so far.
 
  I believe the goals of Lubuntu that was decided during that meeting is
 that
  Lubuntu will be a lightweight distro with appropriate functionality and
  usability. (Yes, I know that functionality and usability have subjective
  meaning).
 
  The list of applications at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Applicationsare
  just a list of applications we will choose for inclusion. Generally, only
  one will be included from each application category.
 
  At the meeting, members have decided to include Firefox, OpenOffice.org,
 VLC
  I am not sure if there will be changes following the discussion on the
  mailing list. Perhaps this can be discussed in the next IRC meeting?
