Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu games

2010-05-03 Thread Luther Goh Lu Feng
A quick thought, a friend long ago requested that card games not be added to my 
remaster of knoppix, as there is some link to gambling. His religion is against 
gambling. It probably is not a big deal for many of us. But I think it wouldn't 
hurt to leave out card games.

 Subject: Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu games
 
 Hm, I think that the completeness of lubuntu is quite important. We also aim 
 at 
 people who own an old computer and just want to write some letters and 
 emails. 
 Of course it's no problem for us to install games to our pc with lubuntu, but 
 these people won't know how to do that. They will look for a 'games' section 
 in 
 the menu, and because there isn't such a section they will think that there 
 are 
 no games for lubuntu. Ok, there are hundreds of great games in the repos, but 
 what if the users who never really worked with a pc won't ever look in the 
 repos 
 or even install something from there?
We don't need many games. We already 
 had the topic, I think we agreed on one tetrisclone (tint?) one game with 
 cards 
 and maybe also xinv3d. They are lightweight, have no dependencies and are 
 just 
 some kb afaik. The people who use lubuntu for a server know how to remove the 
 games if they don't want them, but many others wouldn't know how to add them 
 if 
 we didn't include them in the final distro. So in my opinion it's clear: two 
 or 
 three little games and everone will be happy :-)

Best 
 regards,
Jo

 I think that games are a very personal thing. One should have the games he 
 likes 
 (for example, I installed Extreme Tux Racer and Wormux), not a set of 
 pre-defined games that he may or may not like. And since Lubuntu aims for 
 low-end machines, servers in which the owner wants a graphic environment, and 
 the like, maybe we should let the user what games he wants or doesn't 
 want.

 having default games installed viz...

 May I suggest fltk1.1-games as a 
 pre-installed game base?
 It is small, quite fun to play? (I don't 
 really know, not a games type
 of guy), but at least, it's 
 something.

I'm having a chat with a couple of people regarding how to make a minimal iso 
with lubuntu on, but with the onset of 10.04 release they're a bit busy.

Hi Phillip,

Could you kindly elaborate what you meant by minimal iso with lubuntu?

I think it is alright to do a release after Ubuntu. In fact, there is a small 
advantage to do so. We avoid all the noise from Ubuntu in the the other 
websites and blogs.

 OK, maybe some press release will be good.
BTW, several minutes ago, a bug in 
 libfm causing crashes was fixed by Eugene.
Please update again.

Actually you can try to do daily build from git since it's updated very 
 often.

 It's a pity that Lubuntu

 we'll be ready at the time

 This will not stop us to do a release :)
 I plan to do

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Email client choice

I think there may still be use cases for email clients. For example, my less

I just redirect it to my main email account.

With my GMail account, I use both GMail's web-ui, but I also use local 
mail-client via IMAP4.
I use the latter, in the following cases:
+ Hebrew text editing (right-to-left)
+ Discussing and quoting programming code.
   For this I like to even use external EDITOR (emacsclient).
+ Attaching several files - which is faster in local client, than a 
safety-paranoid web-browser.

Hi,

I was also thinking a few days ago about the need for inclusion of a
mail client. These days I hardly know anyone using mail clients. Many
non-expert users prefer to use webmail. Secondly many power users also
use webmail or even a remote server desktop in order to keep their
data in one place and easily available even if they change devices.

What do you think about it, Julien?

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

2009-06-30 Thread Luther Goh Lu Feng
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/Applications are 
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?

I would say LXDE is lighter than Xfce, the LXDE developers seem to think so. 
I think 64mb Minimum is enough.

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.

  thanks a lot. It looks great.
  
  I think, we could replace it immediately. It is not
 such a big
  decision, I believe. If anyone objects or would like
 to change, please
  tell us.
  
  As the active team is still relatively small - just
 one question
  concerning Subteams. Do we need already an extra page
 for each subteam
  at this point? It might be still ok at this point to
 have the teams
  and tasks still in one page. There are always pros and
 cons (I know
  them). Just decide what seems best to you now. I dont
 see a special
  need for an extra translations team at that point, as
 LXDE has its own
  translation project.
  
  Thanks again for the set up.
  
  Please switch to it.
  
  All the best,

 OK - I will switch it over.
