Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] LxFind

2012-01-17 Thread Michael Rawson
Looking very cool. I'm liking the expanded results box now, and the icons. :)

I can't get it to build currently, but I'll get moving as soon as I can.

Perhaps have a feature like 'open in pcmanfm'? (you might have already 
implemented that, I'm still using the one built off the second revision. :L

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] My Story in 2011

2011-12-31 Thread Michael Rawson

On 31/12/11 21:27, amjjawad HOOHAA wrote:

Dear All,

In few words, I'd like to share my story in 2011 with you all.
2011 was A CRAZY YEAR and fill of lots of things that can't be 
summarized. I admit it was full of screws up but TWO GREAT THINGS 
happened in 2011 that changed my history, present and future.


In 2011, I found the real purpose and aim of my life that I shall 
spend my life time ... each year, month, day, minute, second and nano 
second praying and be very much grateful for that. The Steps that I 
have made in 2011, unquestionably, the best step I've ever made, 
period. My one and only love, you have supported me and still do ... 
you have never let me down and still do ... you have never given up on 
me and still do ... no words and nothing will express how much I'm 
grateful to you. *Happy New Love Year to You* 3 *THANK YOU SO MUCH 
FOR BEING IN MY LIFE* :)


In 2011, my interest, activity, understanding and experience in Linux 
has grown up and it became so obvious how much I like Linux and what 
I'm capable to do for it. Before that, I used to like everything and 
anything. Was jumping here and there with no clear aim or purpose. 
That vanished and faded away the moment I did the second great step in 
2011 and joined Lubuntu Team. I've never done something so right like 
that. I'm quite sure I have finally done the RIGHT step and I shall 
never regret it.


Long story short, I'm the Happiest and the Luckiest man on earth with 
these two huge achievements and I promise I shall improve that in 2012 :)


I'd like to show my appreciation to each and every member of this 
amazing family ... no doubt Lubuntu is my second family. Thank you and 
I'm so much proud to be with you :)


Special thanks to very special people here: Phill, Julien and Michael, 
you guys are amazing .. THANK YOU for everything :)


May this year be much better for Lubuntu and each one of us ... God 
bless you all and wish you all the best in the world. Happy New Year :)


I have made this little thing ... feel free to share it. Nothing much, 
I made it with Photoshop in few mins because I was in hurry :P


http://i40.tinypic.com/5mdxe.jpg

Oh yes, my 2012 will definitely be special too ;)

Seriously, thank YOU AJ, you've been brilliant, really supportive of me, 
as a mentor and friend, hope this continues for a long time yet. :D


My New Year is still two hours away, but I thought I'd post now before 
something unexpected happens (it always does!), but thanks also to 
Amjjawad and Julien/gilir especially, Phil and all the other regular 
contributors. And Morgaes, if he's listening. First year in Linux, and 
it's been a really good one.


I'm really looking forward to Precise Pangolin, LTS or not, and whatever 
they're going to make of Q (quirky quagger?) I also leave secondary 
school later this year, so I hope to be taking computing soon to broaden 
my interest in the topic.


Had my hair cut, and it's dropping all over the keyboard, so I'll stop 
now, but thanks everyone, and I hope you have a very happy new year.


Michael

PS AJ, you missed the depends of the 2012 package, friends, LXDE, and

[Lubuntu-desktop] LSC some apps missing bug, and where to report bugs for LSC

2011-12-21 Thread Michael Rawson
I have had a similiar experience; I literally just filed the bug here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/lubuntu-software-center/+bug/907037

You can report bugs here (providing you have LP account):

https://bugs.launchpad.net/lubuntu-software-center/+filebug

as it is purely a Lubuntu project.

If it is a 'runtime' bug i.e. there is an error, not if there is a missing 
feature, attach the output of lubuntu-software-center in your bug report. 
Also, try the latest bzr branch release before reporting (currently rev. 77 in 
the trunk)

Thanks,

Michael

 Hello everyone,

 1- I'm thinking about a Marketing Team which will be dedicated to Lubuntu
 Marketing and its members will focus ONLY on Marketing. As always, I'm
 willing to contribute and join but I just thought to propose the idea here
 and SO SORRY if this is not the right place to do that :)
 
 2- What are the chances of having a dedicated Forum JUST for Lubuntu? or
 maybe a Sub-Forum either on Ubuntu Forum or LXDE Forum? needless to say I'm
 more than up to this but again, I'd like to propose the idea here.
 
 3- Lubuntu is an official variant of Ubuntu now. Regarding the funds and
 stuff like that, is Canonical taking care of that? what if I find someone
 who can denote or help us financially?  I understand it's free OS but I'm
 working on that ... I'm looking for someone to denote or help us
 financially.
 
 4- Like GNOME 2.xx (say Ubuntu 10.04), how can I add my username to the

 panel but how hard or easy is it to do the same on Lubuntu?
 
 
 That's all for now.

 OK, that helps.  Is there documentation out there somewhere about what
 to replace glade with?  Examples, tutorials, whatever?  Is using glade
 3.10.x (and so GTK3) sufficient?  Or are we really killing glade?
 
 Also, it looks like the quickly programming environment (that Ubuntu
 has been pushing as a way for new programmers to get started) uses glade
 -- is that being changed too?  Otherwise, new programmers will continue
 to use it to build their small applications... which will use glade!

Question-probably naive, but anyway- why don't we keep an 'old kernel' package 
for those with older CPUs?

I don't see that it would need maintenance-that's just what it is-dead weight 
for those who need really old machnes to work. 

Tell me if I'm wrong. But I vote to ditch PAE with th default kernel. Maybe 
have two kernels in the defult iso and some hardware detection in the installer 
to install the right kernel? (IDK if that's possible)

 usability and eye-friendly (and allows hours and hours of fun :D ).
 
 You can check this:

 It's not just aesthetics. Design means usability. That's why I like window

 plane on screen.
 
 I know, I know, it's boring. But look, Suse is green. I think it's a
 mistake associate green (as leaf or nature colour) with energy efficiency.
 You can make black thing and keep efficient. Also, PUD Linux and Vector are
 green now. Even some people asked me about including yellow wallpapers
 because it's warm.
 
 You know it cannot fit for everybody. So going more neutral this time, as
 neutral as you'll can use any wallpaper and still looking good with
 unsaturated (gray) panels and windows.

  In regards to going lighter with Lubuntu, we must remember our key targets
  and goal.  I switched my GTK and Openbox themes to dark themes and it added
  another 40 minutes to my netbook's battery when on full brightness, over an
  hour with minimal brightness.  I took every step to ensure that it was just
  the colors changing that changed the battery life.  Being LXDE aims at
  having a minimal footprint, using dark themes helps minimize power
  consumption, continuing with the goal.

  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.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lsc Port to Vala

2011-11-17 Thread Michael Rawson
So you're converting from python to vala? All for it, I'm happy to test it. 
might improve the speed of things, too... If I understand vala correctly?

  Hi,
 
  One thing I would like to organize for this cycle, is a weekly meeting on
  IRC, to discuss topics more easily and to take decisions when it's needed.
 
  I think we have enough topics to start on a weekly base, but we can do it
  less often in the future, if it's not necessary.
 
  Finding a time for this is ... not very easy :) I don't want to do it
  during the week-end, to be all able to have a week-end far from IT and
  Internet connection :)
 
  I also don't think we should change the time for every meetings, because
  it's the best solution to forget the meeting. But, we can change it after
  some time (like 3 months).
 
  I propose to begin with this schedule : Wednesday, 7:00 PM UTC, starting
  on the 23th.
 
  It'll not be necessary to attempt all the meetings. You can attempt when
  you have subjects to discuss, but you can also adding a subject to the
  schedule, so people can discuss it even if you can't be online at this 
  time.
 
  Let me know what you think about this.
 
  Regards,
  Julien Lavergne

I kinda meant if somebody had reported it before-I knew it was down and 
then it was up again, but I thought might have missed someone saying 
about it. Thank you, though.

I think we can all agree that both Firefox and Chromium are rich

We are simply trying to find out which browser, out of Firefox and
Chromium, use the least resources.
We want to chose the lightest of the two to be our out-of-the-box
web browser, whatever users prefer to use after that is simply an
apt-get away.
Let's not think in terms of This is what I would prefer but

 In my view Chromium offers still better features than
firefox. Just look
 at the HTML5 capabilities it just beats firefox here with in
my view
 important things just like HTML5 videoplayback (H264 is
supported)

Google is dropping H264 support:
http://blog.chromium.org/2011/01/html-video-codec-support-in-chrome.html

 or the fact that every browser tab in chromium is running as
a different
 process in a sandbox which makes a crash of one tab not
concerning for
 other tabs.

Firefox might do that in the future also, but it costs memory to
sandbox each browser tab. And I believe Chromium cheats: when
available memory gets too low, tabs begin sharing the same
process so
it's a bit harder to know what's really going on.

 All in all I am in flavor of Chromium as its still faster
and offers the
 better features.

That's a bit subjective as Firefox also offers unique
features: It's
possible to run a few hundred tabs in Firefox; the design of
Chromium's tabbar makes that much more painful in Chromium.
Firefox
has a much more powerful addon framework (although Chromium may
improve this next year). The user has more control over his
data with
Firefox Sync than with Google's version.

While I'm not a Google-hater, I think it's very important for
the free
web that Mozilla continues to exist. Since Mozilla is a bit
more open
than Chromium and multiple steps more open than Android, I
think open
source fans should consider supporting Firefox if the features are
nearly equal, which in my opinion they are. This is why I hope
Firefox
continues to remain the Ubuntu default browser. Since Lubuntu has
different constraints in choosing default apps, I'll let
Julien and
the Lubuntu devs make their own evaluation. Both browsers are
fully
supported in Ubuntu (Canonical is looking to hire someone who
can help
maintain Chromium).

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu - One Stop Thread

2011-11-04 Thread Michael Rawson
A suggestion; (although you may or may not think it's acceptable-as mentioned, 
your baby, I respect.)
Perhaps you could leave the thread as-is and any helpful post/articles could be 
incorproted into the wiki? I see this as a good way to generate loads of wiki 
pages at relatively little effort and/or inspiration.

And it's a brilliant idea, the LOST. :)
