Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] WOW Lubuntu!

HI amjjawad - I'm not a Facebook user, never will be! But if you want
to link to my little blog post about my Lubuntu experience, feel free:

http://adajer.byethost5.com/articles/2011/11/19/lubuntu-is-lite

It is MY distro now. ;)

p.s. I'm doing a reply-to-all and seeing two distribution lists --
is that right?

 Hello Everyone,

 amjjawad is back to action yet again :)
 I'd like to start my activities with the new Lubuntu Sub Teams by creating a
 new project called WOW Lubuntu. This project has one main target and aim:
 reach to as many users as possible.
 I for one think that every user who has come across Lubuntu needs to return
 the favor to such great system and to do that, he/she can simply JUST TALK
 about Lubuntu and SHARE his/her experience/story with someone else.

 I believe this is the right time for such move and I think the more we talk
 and do for Lubuntu, the more support we shall get.
 Lubuntu really deserves that, thus this simple and humble project is a
 little pay-back for the great and amazing system (Lubuntu).

 Thank you!

Very cool wallpaper* - and a big thankyou to the Lubuntu team via
Canonical who breathed new life into my old machine! Sort of a
metaphor for life. :)

Best wishes for 2012!

 Hi,

 A quick mail to wish you all, a happy new year :-) 2011 was a very cool
 year for Lubuntu, let's hope 2012 will be also a happy year :-)

 Also, for people who are testing Precise, you should have, with today
 updates, a gift [1] from the Artwork Team, if you kept the default
 wallpaper ;-)

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] GSOC - Lubuntu style?

2011-12-31 Thread David Reimer
Thanks for the quick reply, and yes - you're right, that was 2010, not 2011.

I took a quick look at 2011: Gnome was up to 24 projects, and KDE up
to a whopping 47!

It's probably a bit of a lottery, is it? We'll hope for greater success in 2012!

Best wishes,
David.

 Hi David,

 thanks for your reminder. lubuntu applied for GSOC 2011, but did not
 get in. Neither Ubuntu nor LXDE were GSOC projects 2011 by the way. I
 guess you are referring to 2010.

 We will try to get in 2012.

 All the best,

 Mario

[Lubuntu-desktop] GSOC - Lubuntu style?

2011-12-30 Thread David Reimer
I know I'm just a newcomer and all, but thought I'd ask since for some
reason it floated into what passes for my brain:

With Lubuntu's new profile and popularity -- what are the chances of
making more use of the Google Summer of Code project to make some
strategic advances?

http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/homepage/google/gsoc2011

I note that in the 2011 GSOC there were these sorts of numbers:

No. of students - Sponsor project
31 - KDE
17 - Gnome
8 - Ubuntu
1 - LXDE

I expect this is already on someone's radar, but with February as the
date things get going, I expect it could probably use some attention
in January.

And apologies if this note is overly cheeky or presumptuous!

[Lubuntu-desktop] Integrate obkey (or the like)?

2011-12-28 Thread David Reimer
There is a small, fast, simple keybinding utility for Lubuntu available:

http://code.google.com/p/obkey/

I wonder what the thinking might be on whether it (or something like
it) should get bundled into a Lubuntu base install?

With Lubuntu's new and growing popularity (I'm among the recent,
grateful converts), it seems reasonable to think of small enhancements
that will make the migration a little easier. There has been a fair
bit of call in the Ubuntu forums for some simple GUI means of editing
the applications menu, for example.

Making assignments to keys is another one of those tasks that is
easily done in other OS's, but non-trivial in Lubuntu. With obkey,
there is already a solution to hand. It needs some documentation, but
that is more easily done than the coding!

Any reactions/responses welcome (even if to tell this new but
enthusiastic use that there is a better place to raise this sort of
question).

Best wishes from a very wet and windy Scotland,

David [djreimer | dajare]

 Wasn't it better to use the same application for keybindings as in
 Ubuntu rather than including something new? Everybody benefits from as
 much recycling as possible.

My understanding was that the Ubuntu keybinder wouldn't work on
Lubuntu (ibus vs. openbox??), which is why this coder developed obkey.
Could be quite wrong there, though, so open to correction!

 Also, 'Development is halted' looks scary to me.

I *think* that's because it's stable and does what it's supposed to
do, not because it is almost-there-but-abandoned. I've used it myself
and it's pretty simple and solid -- though it could certainly use some
documentation.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Me again :)

2011-12-18 Thread David Reimer
Here's a suggestion for the username in the panel: does each user get
their own settings for the panel? If so, then you could set up the
clock display like this:

%F | %R [Username]

(or however you like it) to display the user's name.

Just a thought...

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Strange behavior with Chromium

2011-12-01 Thread David Reimer
Probably me too messages are not usually welcome, but it might help
to know that I have precisely this behaviour. (Toshiba Satellite A100
1.40Ghz CeleronM, 1Gb RAM). This is what I would call my normal
Chromium behaviour, although at times, unexpectedly, it works sharpish
and snappy with Gmail. Generally, though, I find myself with
loading... message ... and waiting ... till I shut the browser down.

I just checked now -- and it's behaving. But I have learned not to
expect that the *next* time I fire up Gmail in Chromium!

FWIW.

David.

 OK, this is a long shot...

 I recently installed Lubuntu 11.10 (64bit) on my Acer AS3820 (with an I3
 processor and 4GB ram.)  The browser is choking on Gmail for some reason.
 It looses it's connection and then won't reconnect or if it does, it beaks
 the connection again.  Other sites continue to function and I have no
 problem accessing Gmail from another computer, tablet, phone or even Firefox
 on the same laptop.  It happens on my home network (wireless) and at work
 (wired).

 I'm not sure what to make of this.  Any ideas?

Sorry for multiple posts (I'm learning!). Here's the log from
terminal on a longer Gmail session in Chromium, although it did behave
quite well - not a hung session, then. I opened the browser, logged
in to Gmail, did some stuff (read messages, tagged, etc.), the shut
down Chromium:
