Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Fw: Dropping i386 non-PAE as a supported kernel flavour in Precise Pangolin

 I think it's also not how many people are using non-pae cpus, but
 whether or not Lubuntu is expected to be able to run on non-pae cpus.
 For example, I would expect Lubuntu to run on the 400MHz FSB Pentium M
 CPUs [2] (only the 400MHz FSB models don't support PAE [3]); in fact,
 I'd even argue that those CPUs are part of the intended audience. And
 no matter how many users there are, based off of a QA perspective, if
 I say that Lubuntu is designed for a particular kind of machine, it
 better be able to run on that machine, plain and simple.
 
 
 Also, the non-pae kernel is still supported in Precise. All we'd have
 to do is change the default kernel on i386.

I decided to give a shot to Lubuntu 12.04 on my testing laptop, Thinkpad
T42 with 1.7GHz Pentium M, no dice. So I take my earlier reply back as
this machine is from ~2003 or something and not even from the 90's.

http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Intel_Pentium_M_(Dothan)

From that list it is easy to see models from Thinkpad lines, and those
are really used around the globe.

That technically rises the ammount of users affected.

But now I'm out to enjoy -14C winter weather with a hint of Sun shining,
happy new year from me too ;)

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Minimal Install issue in Wiki

2011-12-28 Thread Benny Hult


 I used the alternate to install to an old laptop 1.3 GHz Celeron M  256
 Mb RAM (since upgraded).
 Ubiquity kept crashing  the alternate worked just fine.  It gave me a
 full Lubuntu install.

 Today I have used the Mini iso to install to a Compaq TC1000 Tablet with a
 1GHz Transmeta Crusoe CPU  256 Mb RAM (possibly 512,it's a bit unclear).
 No, I don't know what a Crusoe CPU is either.  For the tablet I want the
 ABSOLUTE MINIMUM of 'stuff' on there  I'll try to build something half
 workable from there.  All I have at the moment is a browser, window manager
  synaptic, pretty much.  I'm going to start on wireless tomorrow.

 I never thought I'd see the day I'd be doing this kind of thing, you guys
 have inspired me to be brave :)



Back in the change of the millenium there was a common question that was
directed to Linus when he was talking some where: What does Transmeta do?
Usually couple of hands got rised with same question.

Oh well, later Transmeta released Crusoe CPU which was totally low energy
consumption CPU, a huge improvement on laptop markets (flybook for
example). Later Transmeta got purchased by VIA. You can read more about it
from wikipedia for example.

And yes Minimal CD is da thing, smartest way to install operating system.
And when you install lubuntu-desktop meta package, it will fetch the whole
thingie. lubuntu-core installs just the core, basics to build your desktop.

Laters ;)

Hi,


just a quick 'paper-cut'. The good news is that the new kernel finally
recognises my 3G usb-dongle. The paper cut is that when it is running,
the network icon is blank. It is still there on the bar, as in I can
right click on the 'space', but unlike Ethernet or Wireless there is
no icon.


Not sure what package this is against to file a bug.

Yes, instead of make install, use checkinstall $(sudo apt-get install
checkinstall) and then you have your compiled software packaged and
installed for your personal use, not for sharing, but does the job.

More about it:

 Hi Stephen,

  1) 1st attempt at ./configure complained I had an out dated intltool, so
 I grabbed the current one from Synaptics. This then worked.
 2) 1st attemp at make install failed, no permissions (sudo !! sorted that
 one out).

  The icon is in the System Tools area where I expected it to be, but
 double clicking on it does nothing.

  You can't beat having an idiot to test stuff with :)

  This is the very big problem I see with having a separate FAQ to the
  main information on the wiki. Unless it's specific to Lubuntu I
  really don't see why it should exist on our FAQ area at all. All
  this does is duplicate information AND reduce the number of people
  working on a topic. This is a perfect example because the proper
  Java page [0] was updated a while ago to reflect the changes.
  
  So my opinion is, unless it's specific to Lubuntu we should
  contribute and rely on the community documentation for *Ubuntu
  instead of trying to carve out our own little niche that will
  easily be out of date and hard to maintain with fewer resources.
  (To answer your question my suggestion would be to remove the java
  section altogether, if you HAVE to have something, link to the main
  page for Java).
  
  [0] https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java
  
 Couldn't agree more Jared.  Repeating the same information over and
 over in different places is not helpful.  Users who aren't quite sure
 what their problem is end up 'not seeing the wood for the trees.'
 This is the sort of thing a decent index is helps with.
 
 

FAQ is still targeted for IRC users.
People come and asks for the same question time after time. That's why
I created it. But if you feel there's no point in it, I wish you will
completely remove it from the wiki area, as you
mailing-list besserwissers seems to have a better solution for this.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Fw: Dropping i386 non-PAE as a supported kernel flavour in Precise Pangolin

2011-11-19 Thread Benny Hult
I really cant see why you're all (except dear JM ;) crying after
obsolete hardware.

If this kind of decissions are never made, People will never
recycle these power hungry computers with more decent ones.

What I've been keeping eye on Ubuntu, it has lost support for older
hardware around 9.04. If you really want to have support for older
computers, you could check another distro. Something Slackware based
for example. SalixOS ain't a bad option. They have i486 kernel, you can
choose from LXDE, Fluxbox, XFCE4 and Ratpoison.
Slapt-get is not that far from apt-get.

I dont want to sound harsh, but sometimes people should just let
go with old hardware. Old x86 hardware is not a gem in a collection,
it's just a soulless piece of computer techonology, unlike C-64's,
Amiga's and Atari's, and some other machines like any SGI.

And companies are now in here ditching the first generation Core 2 Duo
machines, anything below that is hazardous waste.

I'm wondering why people keeps those Pentium II's and Celerons
hanging around. Computing can't be fun with slow machines.

You can buy Intel Atom boards for almost free, those will pay itself
back in electricity bill

 - It differencies us from Kubuntu  Xubuntu (also blue...) giving

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.

Julien Lavergne

Is there anything wrong? some kind of maintenance? in case there is

Works okay from my phone with 1Mbit HSDPA connection.
Sounds more like a routing problem.

Have you or your friend with high speed internet connection tested
this with traceroute?amjjawad HOOHAA kirjoitti 11.11.2011 12:45:

Hello everyone,

Yet again, http://forum.lxde.org is so slow and not responsive at all.
I have a friend in another country with a high Internet speed
connection so I asked him to test it and he confirmed the website is
SO SLOW so it's not my PC or connection.

Is there anything wrong? some kind of maintenance? in case there is
any, is there any way that we can be informed? a banner maybe or an
email so one can know at least what is going on?

Please check and update us.

Thank you!

Guys,

I was wondering if someone has noticed that LXTask actually shows
+100MB usage more than System Monitor and Conky so what is going on?
I have System Monitor installed on Lubutnu 11.04 (was testing
something) and Conky as well. While each of System Monitor (GNOME APP)
and Conky are showing the same memory usage, LXTask add 100MB to that.
Example: System Monitor + Conky shows 287MB while Firefox Loaded with
two tabs. On the other hand, LXTask shows 387MB.

Any idea?


I have similar issue when lubuntu is installed alongside with ubuntu :/

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] new ubuntu software center

2011-08-02 Thread Benny Hult
Looks horrible and its full of Free software,
like Android Market or other samekind of variants.

Propably that kind of software is needed for marketing OS for the
masses. Typing mystical spells into a blackbox is just too geek even
for the hipsters using OS X ;)

If I could code, I would rather use synaptic as the starting point.
But, Linux Mint has also own software center, is that lighter than the
USC? Could that be used or even forked?

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] New ISO images available : Lubuntu

2011-07-26 Thread Benny Hult
Congratulations!
One huge milestone is now reached.

Are the new iso file's dd friendly?
So that we can just sudo dd if=lubuntu-11.10.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=1M?

On Tue, 2011-07-26 at 23:52 +0200, Julien Lavergne wrote:
 Hi Ubuntu developers,
 
 New images have pop up on cdimage.ubuntu.com [1]. Finally, Lubuntu is
 out of the Ubuntu factory :) [2]
 
 For people who don't know Lubuntu, this is a quick presentation. Lubuntu
 is a distribution based on Ubuntu, and the LXDE desktop environnement.
 The main goal is to provide a very lightweight distribution, but with
 all the advantages of the Ubuntu world (repositories, support ...).
 Currently we are using :
 - Chromium for the browser
 - Openbox for the windows manager
 - Pcmanfm for the file manager
 - Abiword + Gnumeric for office work
 - Pidgin for IM
 - Audacious for playing music
 - Gnome-mplayer for videos
 - Some GNOME components : evince, file-roller, gnome-keyring 
 - Most of the LXDE components
 You can find the complete list of applications by default on the wiki
 [3].
 
 After 2 years of work, and 3 unofficial releases (10.04, 10.10 and
 11.04), we had recently an official go from the Technical Board and ISO
 images are now made like other Ubuntu flavors. I hope the 11.10 will be
 the 1st official release of Lubuntu as a member of the Ubuntu family :)
 
 We have 2 important particularities. Like Xubuntu, we use another
 GTK-based desktop environnement than GNOME, and we try to avoid
 unnecessary GNOME depends which could slow the system. We need some
 GNOME parts because LXDE doesn't provide all necessary components. It's
 the reason why we are very careful about dependencies of those
 applications.
 
 We are also very strict with ressources requirement. It's the reason why
 we don't include all Ubuntu specific applications. For example, we don't
 include Software-Center because it's still a bit heavy for some of our
 targets.
 
 I would like to thanks all people who make this happen, especially Mark,
 Colin and Emmet, and all people involved in the development of Lubuntu
 and LXDE.
 
 If you want to talk to the Lubuntu community, you can use our mailing
 list (lubuntu-desktop@lists.launchpad.net) or IRC : #lubuntu on
 Freenode. You can also find information on our wiki [3].
 
 Thanks for your attention :)

 Julien Lavergne

2011/6/2 神癒礁湖 (Rafael Laguna) rafaellag...@gmail.com

 Hiya, guys and girls:

 The Ozone theme (now called Ozone2, very original :| ) is working, more or
 less, on a GTK3 environment. Sorry for the screenshot, it's made using
 Unity2D (LXDE doesn't have been ported yet so it can't make use of the new
 libraries) and Openbox (exotic combination :D ). Anyway, this screenshot
 means that we're in the right way, but theme may sure differ a lot from this
 (that's my intention, repeating is boring).



 PCManFM (gtk2) is on the left, and Nautilus (gtk3) on the right. Would like
 to see PCManFM gtk3 from GIT working.

 Another question. Any of you have noticed a bug on the Gnome-MPlayer icon?
 I mean, it may show hard-edged with sharp contours.

 Thank you.

 If we don't find bugs when testing it, we can probably ship it as an
 non-offcial ISO, like the alternate CD we had for 10.10.

As well as the expected publicity and marketing benefits, at a
technical level we would be able to use the official Ubuntu build
infrastructure for creating our ISOs, and official test setups for
tracking which tests have been done on which builds of Lubuntu.

It should also mean that other developers and packagers within the
Ubuntu world need to take Lubuntu seriously and not do anything that
will break Lubuntu (like doubling the amount of calculated disk space
needed just 3 weeks before release, and then not providing any way for
the user to say I know what I am doing to get past the disk size check!).

There are probably other benefits too, these are just the things that I
am hopeful for and can remember right now :)

Benny - thanks for the clue.  Your guess is correct.  I know all about 
cat/less/more - but thanks for looking out for me Andrew.


However, once booted, and I find myself at the bash prompt,  there is no 
Xorg.log!  There is no Xorg. anything in /var/log.  Looking at dmesg and 
syslog give no real clues.


I have had a lot more experience with Red Hat'ish Linux, and I was just 
wondering where logs like this might be on Lubuntu.


So mystery deepens.

  A quick warning, be careful if you install it. Ubiquity (the
  installer) will ask you for keyboard configuration. Be sure to say
  No, so you will be able to configure properly your keyboard and
  select your layout. Otherwise, you may not be able to use your
  keyboard after the reboot.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Members list (and editing information in multiple places)

I respectfully suggest that you don't really need everyone to do that :)

If we need TZ info on this list (as opposed to one click away from the
list as it is already), then why not use the TZ info that people have
already put in their Launchpad accounts, instead of asking everyone to
re-edit the Lubuntu-specific list to add that same info?  Am I missing
something?

Ideally, write some little script to dynamically query LP for the TZ
info, so that we each only have to edit our TZ in one place (on LP) when
we move around :)

Failing that, if we really have to statically duplicate this
information, could I suggest we at least initialize the new column using
the TZ data that is currently in LP for every LP user?

Thinking about this a bit more broadly, there might even be a way to
dynamically generate the entire WhoAreWe page by querying LP about
members of ~lubuntu-desktop ??

Jonathan

As I've wondered this thing, I think there's really no need for time zones.
Like most of you guys seems to live at night from my point of view 
(which is a normal point of view ;).


And UTC is changed twice a year, there's winter time and summer time 
(daylight saving) and it requires editing to keep it up-to-date.


I suggest to roll back to Revision 43 and keep the arrangement as latest 
addition in bottom.

[Lubuntu-desktop] Sylpheed and SPAM

Seems to be like that the Sylpheed doesnt have a spam filter for mails when 
using default installation.

Which one to use from the two of the choices?
Could it be added for the 11.04?

[Lubuntu-desktop] Suggestions for LXPanel GPicView

2010-11-29 Thread Benny Hult
First things first:
Is it possible to add a feature that you can move programs in lxpanel?
Like I have first started chromium and then urxvt and I want that urxvt
to be first in the listing on lxpanel? Before the Chromium, in Gnome
that's possible and I use it alot.

And I think I've mailed to PCMan (don't know if the email address was
right) about GPicView and support for RAW Files.
I have DCRAW installed, but GPicView does not use it for showing a huge
RAW image, instead it shows me a 160x120 image (thumbnail or something).

I'm really waiting for the RAW support, becouse that's one thing that
lacks me using Lubuntu on my Desktop computer as I'm not Chuck Norris of
photography who can shoot jpeg's with DSLR ;)

I agree.
I've tried Zentyal I've found it horrible.

I had some problems http://forum.zentyal.org/index.php?topic=5259.0
and there was no resolution for it, so I made a rollback to pfSense and
I'm once again a happy camper, becouse I noticed my problems with
pfSense was that I changed shell from sh to zsh ;)

Zentyal has a nice web interface, it's easy to install on fresh lubuntu,
but after all: all eggs in a same basket is not that good thing when you
think about it twice. And since it has a DNS problem like that (a very
basic thing), I cannot suggest it.

I don't want to bash it or anything, becouse some features seem to work
perfectly, but as Gordon Ramsay says less is more.

Just my personal opinion about Zentyal, I really didnt never try the
Zentyal Desktop, but I think I didn't miss much.

ps. Zentyal config saving is really annoying if you compare to pfSense.

It would make a little more sense if you could tell us what you've done

Is it possible to add this gvfs-backends packet to the installation procedure

We had today that kind of problem on #lubuntu channel.

I've installed Xubuntu but it seems to be using up too many resources.
Someone suggested I try Lubuntu. When I burned a CD and tried though, it
says I lack 'cmov' and to try another kernel. Any suggestions?


And we discussed with phillw about this issue and we were sure it was
becouse of 10.10 is i686 and his CPU is i585.

You can try with USB stick if 10.10 works, but I doubt.

 That's rather disappointing, as these are the kind of machines that
 Lubuntu would continue to make useful.  The alternative would be to have
 a separate repository for Lubuntu, compiled for i586 (or i486), which
 would kind of muddy the goal of having Lubuntu be an officially
 recognized part of Ubuntu.
 
 Sigh.  Wonder if anyone's doing anything with LXDE on Slackware?
 
 Ben

Wonder no more, http://www.salixos.org/wiki/index.php?title=Download
You can try out Salix, it's based on Slackware and kinda a fork from
Zenwalk. My wife is running Salix OS and I haven't heard any complaining
about it.

But it lacks with packages if you compare to Lubuntu.
Hope we can see you using Lubuntu still in the future, becouse the grass
ain't greener on the other side of the fence ;)

[Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu 10.10 and PCmanFM on default install

2010-10-13 Thread Benny Hult
Hello,
I made yesterday a fresh intall of Lubuntu 10.10.
And I'm enjoying it as much as I did when I used 10.10 beta's.

But I noticed that PCmanFM still has this Go - Network Drives feature.
But when I clicked it to see my samba shares, it once again gave me a 
complaiments that it doesn't work. So I once again made some googling becouse I 
was remembering I needed something and it was gvfs-backends. I apt-get'd it and 
now it works.

So what I'm mailing about is that what if gvfs-backends is a default part of 
the .iso -image of Lubuntu 10.10? Maybe we could see it in next stable release? 
I've seen lots of users who can't google as much as I can (and I'm not even 
that good in it ;) and there fore they're a little lost why they can't see 
their pr0n shares on their Windows XP.

[Lubuntu-desktop] Replacing Sylpheed email client with Claws Mail?

2010-08-19 Thread Benny Hult
I don't know about you, but somehow that Sylpheed feels weird and just
doesn't work for me.
I've used Claws Mail with slower machines instead of Thunderbird and
it's fast and smooth to use.

quote
What are the differences between Claws Mail and Sylpheed?

Claws Mail (formerly Sylpheed-Claws) started as the bleeding-edge
version of Sylpheed, in order to act as a testbed for new features for
Sylpheed. The idea was to regularly resync with Hiroyuki's main branch,
and vice-versa. Claws Mail then evolved into the stable extended version
of Sylpheed, and is now an entity in its own right, mainly due to
different goals and the fact that syncing both codebases doesn't happen
anymore.

Claws Mail has many extra features compared to Sylpheed and is more
powerful, yet is just as fast, lightweight and stable.
/quote

http://www.claws-mail.org/faq/index.php/General_Information

This is just a suggestion, please don't lynch me for bringging this
thing up ;)
