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

2011-12-30 Thread Mario Behling
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

 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!

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] logo

2011-11-17 Thread Mario Behling
HI Rafael,

cool. Do you have a draft of the mockup?

The current site is based on the Ubuntu Drupal theme. It seems this project
is not so active anymore and there are better theme options.

Currently, we have a few people who have admin access and can change
things. It seems though that the theme has several bugs and every time
someone changes something there are broken links or images do not work. It
is a quite boring task to fix that again and again.

So, I want to throw the theme over board and implement a completely new
theme: light, fast and clearly integrated. Looking forward to receive your
ideas for the mockup.

- Mario

 That's right, this is the right place for discussions about the distro.
 And I dont want anybody be angry of my words (in fact, it was a bit a joke
 for Mario). But I'm still thinking that we must be stronger and graphic
 design or advertising are powerful tools for that purpose. And, I'd like to
 use this mailing thread to anounce a few things I've got in mind, and I
 need your opinion.

 - a design / graphics / publishing line cheat is under development (like
 Kubuntu or Ubuntu's) for those things like signatures, wallpapers,
 stickers, and other things that doesn't really fit in marketing (or maybe
 yes) and make it distributable for you all (this includes presentation
 templates, mail signatures, etc).

 - a lubuntu.net mockup is almost ready, but I don't really know if we can
 change that. And that's not all, the idea for this is providing a nice set
 of mirrors, or at  least, being more concrete about where and what to
 download. A lot of users were confused.

 That's all, for the moment. What do you think?

 Thanks Mario.

 Currently, the situation is not very nice, the mailing list is not open 
 anymore, and the PPA is too common. We have to change the mailing or the PPA 
 location, or both.

 About the mailing list, the best solution is probably to swith to one (or 1 
 for user help, and 1 for devel ?) on https://lists.ubuntu.com/, since it's a 
 more standart mailing list (no need to be member of the team).

 The PPA will probably diseapears with the time, we need more specialized 
 PPAs, instead of one with many varous stuff in it.

 Last week we wrote to tell you that on 2011-11-23 we will be changing the
 membership policy of your Launchpad team lubuntu-desktop to moderated.
 We're doing this to protect the people who use that team's Personal Package
 Archive (PPA).

 Right now, lubuntu-desktop has an open membership policy, meaning anyone
 can join the team and upload potentially malicious packages to the PPA.

 We strongly recommend that you change your team's membership policy now and
 audit the team's membership to make sure that you trust each member.

 You can change the team's membership policy here:

 Otherwise, you can delete the team's PPA and retain the open membership
 policy.

 Before you can create a new team PPA, a team's membership policy must be
 either moderated or restricted. Your team was created before we improved
 the security around team PPAs.

 These changes won't have any affect on the team's current members. However
 it does mean that you'll have to approve new team members.

 Lubuntu 11.10 is now available :

  * http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/releases/11.10/release/

 == What is Lubuntu ? ==

 Lubuntu 11.10 is a brand new flavor of Ubuntu based on the Lightweight
 X11 Desktop Environment (LXDE), as its default GUI.  The goal is to
 provide a very lightweight distribution, with all the advantages of the
 Ubuntu world (repositories, support, etc.). Lubuntu is targeted at
 normal PC and laptop users running on low-spec hardware. Such users
 may not know how to use command line tools, and in most cases they just
 don't have enough resources for all the bells and whistles of the
 full-featured mainstream distributions.

 With many LXDE components, Lubuntu also uses well-known applications,
 such as Chromium, Openbox, Pidgin, to name a few. The Lubuntu project
 wiki contains more information on the project and the applications used
 available.

 == Features ==

  * Based on the lightweight LXDE desktop environment.
  * Pcmanfm 0.9.9, a fast and lightweight files manager using gio/gvfs.
  * Lxdm, a lightweight GTK display manager.
  * Chromium, the open-source version of Google Chrome.
  * ... and, of course, based on Ubuntu 11.10.

 See the complete list of applications on
 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Applications


 == Improvements since Lubuntu 11.04 ==
  * ISOs are now build with Ubuntu official build system.
  * Alternate ISOs are available.
  * Many updates from LXDE (most components had official releases).
  * Build with recommended packages by default.
  * Use recommends instead of depends for most of components of
 lubuntu-desktop meta-package.
  * Register correctly LXDE as a desktop environment by xdg tools.
  * Switch to xfce4-power-manager for power management.
  * Add a microblog client : pidgin-microblog.
  * New theme made by Rafael Laguna.

2011-09-07 Thread Mario Behling
Hi everyone,

@ Phil: Thank you for directing Ali. There are different opinions
about crosspostings on lists. Personally, I prefer to stick to the
appropriate list - which is the LXDE list for Alis question.
Nevertheless, as you wrote you want it on both lists, I am following
your wish this time.

@ Ali: Thank you for supporting everyone in the community. Yes, we
would be happy to have you joining the admin team.

Firstly please join the IRC of LXDE on oftc.net #lxde. Here you find
other people to talk to about what an admin needs to do on the forum.
You can talk to 'brother', 'mwei' and 'maces' for example, who take
care of a lot of things in the community.

Secondly, as you are relatively new, I would suggest we wait for 1
week (until Sep. 18) before you become admin to give people the chance
to give opinions. If there are no objections we can add you. There are
several admin roles. The one most applicable for you would be a role
to take care of posts and user as well as spam (would be great). If
you want to become a 'super admin' taking care of technical aspects
you can contact us at a later time again.

All the best,

Mario

 Also, I've been active too on Facebook Page for Lubuntu:

 I want to ask you something. Is it possible for me to be an Admin on that

 I'm sure the team needs more staff when it comes to these two sites. If I

 What do you think? is it a good step?

 Whatever Lubuntu area is chosen for the most up to date information is THE

 Please forward this message to people who will give the session together
 with you, so they know what's going on and who to ask for help if necessary.

 We are going to announce the event either today or tomorrow and there is
 only very little for you to do until then (apart from preparing a few
 bits for your session... :-)).


 You might have heard of Lernid already. Think of it as a great way to
 join into learning events on IRC. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lernid has
 more info about it. We will advertise this as a good way for new people
 to join UDW. The great thing is that they don't have to bother with IRC
 and stuff, but also that links you mention automatically are opened in a
 webpage pane and that if you decide to use slides (in .pdf format), you
 can demo them too.

 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lernid/Session%20Leaders has more info about how
 to do that. If you want your presentation to be available for the event,
 either send me a link to it or the presentation itself.


 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDeveloperWeek is the final schedule and I
 just set up https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDeveloperWeek/Sessions where
 you can ask the attendants of your sessions to prepare themselves, if
 necessary. Also describe what the session is about. Please update the
 page accordingly.

 For those of you who have not participated in an Ubuntu Developer Week
 before, this is roughly how it works:

  - Sessions are held in #ubuntu-classroom on irc.freenode.net. It will
   almost exclusively you speaking in there. Please try to finish your
   session in time for the next session.
  - Some sessions in the past had ~400 attendants, so to keep the session
   log readable and understandable, we ask attendants to ask their
   questions in #ubuntu-classroom-chat. We will have a bot in the chat
   channel who can relay questions easily. Check out
   https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Classroom/ClassBot for more info.
  - Session logs will be made available afterwards on
   https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDeveloperWeek
  - We will have translators available in channels like
   #ubuntu-classroom-chat-ca, #ubuntu-classroom-chat-de, etc. who will
   translate and relay questions to #ubuntu-classroom-chat for those who
   are not confident enough 

[Lubuntu-desktop] Join up at Berlin 'Lightweight' desktop summit from Aug.6-12

2011-07-03 Thread Mario Behling
Hello,

the desktop summit of KDE and GNOME will be held in Berlin, Germany
from 6 - 12 August 2011. I believe this would be a great opportunity
to meet up with developers, designers and contributors from all over
the world. I would like to propose to hold an adjoin Mini-Summit to
add the focus Lightweight Desktops to events in Berlin. Who would be
interested to join?

I set up a wiki page collecting information of folks interested here:
http://wiki.lxde.org/en/Lightweight_Desktop_Summit_2011

Would be great to meet you in Berlin.

All the best,

Mario

 Hiyas Simon,

 what can I say but thank you. We do appreciate you taking a bit of
 time out to help on the lxde / lubuntu project.

 Regards,

 Phill.

 No Problem, I just thought it doesn't make sense to do the same job
 twice :)

 So again, let me know when you have specific theming issues, I just
 stumbled upon a few new ones recently (e.g. claws-mail, chromium,
 synaptic) that are now integrated in Greybird (a revamped, more greyish
 version of Bluebird; the intense blue was a bit polarizing in our
 community so I thought I'd go with something smoother) and haven't been
 backported to Bluebird yet (not enough time currently).

 It would be nice to cooperate a bit more on artwork, especially because
 we're all dealing with the same pond of applications and some of those
 need special treatment. I for one want as many applications as possible
 to work/look great in Xubuntu - meaning: not just the ones installed by
 default - because many users will choose to install additional stuff or
 replacements. And the best thing (imo) for such theming issues is to
 communicate a bit more and try to get the fixes out to others as well.

 So if your artwork guy - I still don't know who that is :) - wants to
 get in touch or cooperate a bit more you know where you can find me.

 Cheers,
 Simon

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubunu Screencasts

2011-01-02 Thread Mario Behling
Hi Phil,

would be great if you could host the videos on your server and if we
could embed them somehow in the lubuntu site. Unfortunately the videos
are currently with car advertisements when I view them. I already had
some discussions with Leszek about this as blip also offers adsfree
videos. It might be a solution if you host the videos, so we can offer
adfree videos. I am not totally against advertising, if it is for a
dedicated purpose. Particularly though, I find forced advertising
before a video pretty annoying. Just reminds me of boring TV times.

 Interesting idea raised by now3d in IRC

 Hi there.  Could I ask if you would consider switching the Adobe Flash
 videos to be in the Ogg Theora format and use video tag? I looked at
 http://lubuntu.net/ but all the videos wouldn't play from Firefox on
 Ubuntu.

 Not sure how much work this would entail.
 Unfortunately my line kept dropping and I didn't get to talk about them
 not
 playing in FF.

 The newer ones should run fine in Chromium with
 chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra
 installed. The older ones are unfortunately only avaiable as flv files.
 The new videos from 2011 will be encoded in webm (which should be
 playable in
 every browser [FF 4.0 is needed]) + h264 (m4v as blip.tv now converts
 automatically to it). As for the video tag. As far as I know chromium is
 loading and caching those videos when you add them with the video tag.
 That
 would produce high traffic on the server. (blip.tv in that case) So a
 link to
 the file would be better I think. Clicking the link should then open up
 the
 video in the internal browser video player.

 Thanks for the info Leszek.  I just download and play the in Lifrea or
 Opera and haven't had any problems.  I don't know what the problem in FF is
 (codec missing?) as they work for.

 Once again thank you for making these screen-casts, as they are very
 useful.

 Happy New Year to you.:)

thank you for your suggestion. As you said correctly the info is kind

[Lubuntu-desktop] Promoting lubuntu 10.04

2010-05-03 Thread Mario Behling
Dear all,

exciting times! As Julien has released the final version for lubuntu
lucid, it is time to promote the release. We are having a lot of hits
on lubuntu.net and blogs are pushing the news.

We also need to get the message about lubuntu out in the mainstream. I
formulated a press release which you can find on
http://lubuntu.net/news/ [1] and in the wiki.

If you would like to help, please correct errors (as I am not an
English native speaker) and help translating the release into your
language in the wiki [2]. There are also some images for promotion
available from Rafael Laguna in the Artwork section here:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Artwork/ . If you have any contacts to
journalists, please send the release to them. It would be good to have
journalists signing up the newly installed newsletter on lubuntu.net
as well.

Finally, there are a lot of forums that exist already. Please join
your local Ubuntu forum and support people who install lubuntu the
first time. In the http://ubuntuforums.org lubuntu related entries can
be tagged lubuntu.

As this release is marked as a final beta be aware that this is an
excellent release, but also be aware that development is ongoing and
as more people start using lubuntu some bugs might appear. So, we need
more developers who can join development actively.

All the best from Vietnam,

Mario

 Perhaps 2 small technical points about this mailing list itself.

 Could something be done so that all replies are directed back to this
 mailing list rather than to the sender if the sender (inadvertently)
 sends as 'cc' rather than 'to' ? (as what's being done in the ubuntu
 and kubuntu mailing list)

 Also can this mailing list be 'ported' or 'mirrored' to the gmane
 newsgroup too?

 Lastly, but I think more importantly, the exposure and 'market recall',
 no.even just knowing about 'Lubuntu' is low.  Not many people have
 heard of it, even the ubuntu users themselves and that's a shame.

 I understand Lubuntu is not 'officially' part of ubuntu yet, (just a
 part of launchpad?) and that's perhaps the reason we cannot be too
 'overt' about this, but could you share with us the framework that
 needs to be done to achieve this? Who knows, some of us here, besides
 being good designers and techies are good in marketing and pr too? (but
 I hope not in office politics and corporate shenaniganism  :) )

 Thanks, regards - Goh Lip

[Lubuntu-desktop] Join the LXDE translation project

2010-04-26 Thread Mario Behling
Dear all,

the desktop environment of lubuntu still needs translators. It would
be great if there are more people who could join the translation
project on http://wiki.lxde.org/en/Category:Translations

The systems that can be used for the translation are:
#  Pootle: http://pootle.lxde.bsnet.se
# Transifex: http://www.transifex.net/projects/p/lxde/

For pootle you need additional permissions to be able to translate.

Steps:
1. Register at http://pootle.lxde.bsnet.se
2. Tell me
a) your user name
b) the language(s) you want to help with
3. Wait for my confirmation that you are accepted
4. Start translating online.

I am looking forward to your mails!

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Default Browser

2010-01-30 Thread Mario Behling
Hi,

the discussion is coming up from time to time. This is a good
overview. My additions to Julien inline

 == Keep Firefox ==
 + Firefox is well-known
 + Well maintained upstream and on Ubuntu
 + Many features
  + supported in many languages
 - Slow on startup
 - Memory usage
 ? Rendering seems slower

 == Switch to Midori ==
 + Small and fast
 + Memory usage
 - Upstream active but with limited developers compared to the 2 others.
 - Features limited
- problems with rendering some web pages


 == Switch to Chromium ==
 + Similar to Chrome, which begin to be well-known
 + Good interface for small screen
 + Upstream active, supported by Google
 +- Firefox have still more possibility and features than Chromium
 ? Maybe be maintained by Mobile Team
 ? Private data send ?

Privacy is a real issue. There is an alternative see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SRWare_Iron
David Sugar mentioned one time, that the Chromium maintainers might
look into it. Now, that Canonical is changing to Yahoo as its standard
search engine is the team also looking into this aspect? Google would
still get information about what people search with Yahoo or Bing even
when Google is not the standard search engine.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Tested on MSI Wind U100

2009-12-10 Thread Mario Behling
Hi David,

thanks a lot for your ideas.

Do you have more information on which Chromium version will be in the
Ubuntu repo? The reason why some people refrain from using Chromium
are privacy issues. An RLZ identifier, an encoded string is sent to
Google on search queries or every 24 hours with Chromium. Will that be
changed in the Chromium version in Ubuntu?

Thanks,

Mario

 This touches upon many areas.  I will initially comment on a few.  In
 respect to SD cards and lower cost SSD media, I think there is a lot we
 can do to better optimize the user experience, even from install time,
 and perhaps Lubuntu is the right place to think about doing this first.
  There is (naturally:) a blueprint I have on this topic:
 https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/desktop-lucid-unr-ssd-optimizations

 There were a couple of things I recall missing in the original seed for
 Karmic, including a mixer.  These things will be addressed in the
 Lubuntu seed for Lucid.  The usb creator can be used to take any iso cd
  install image and turn it into a USB install, so once we have a live
 iso for Lubuntu Lucid, making it available for USB keys is very easy.
 This is what is done for UNR in Karmic (and presumably Lucid), where we
 distribute a CD ISO while most netbooks of course have no CD/DVD drive.

 I like the idea of LXDE as a server gui for local admin as well.  Maybe
 the place to start is with the mini-iso, where we could work on having
 the ability to select ubuntu server and lxde desktop as a valid
 combination.  In fact I was thinking of taking a netbook and using it as
 a soho server, so it would be very logical to have lxde on that :).

 Chromium is going to be used for UNE on ARM, and the same arguments
 could apply to Lubuntu, where firefox is a resource hog.  Of course, I
 think epiphany-webkit or something similar does also work well for
 Lubuntu, and supports mozilla plugins including flash.

 I would love to see more people asking more questions, not less :).

 Hai everybody

 Hai I tested Lubuntu on my MSI wind U100, I am not a pro like you guys
 but I like to have my hands on it because I really believe lubuntu
 will be much better the Xubuntu. And of course I WANT to have a very
 lightweight linux on my netbook and PC.

 I am running on Ubuntu 9.10 remix  installed on my MSI Wind U100, after
 I while I started with Apt to install LXDE
 After running on LXDE I was satisfied and very optimistic that  it will
 be one  that  I am looking for.( after a lot of  switching for linux to
 linux)

 Here are the problems on the MSI wind U100:

 * Filemanager Pcman  0.5.1 on the left windows are drives displayed
 twice. if you click one of the with the same name you will get an
 error-message Directory doesnt exist
 * Wicd it a very nice looking piece but to bad, to while connection the
 the wirelles network (WEP) ofcourse it was validated but I got an error
 message Connection failed:Unable get IP Adress that was during the
 status Obtaining IP address.
 * I have no sound I realize I have no mixer something like that so I
 dont know if its muting or not.
 * FN keys. FN+F4 and FN+F5 is working very well,its for dimming the
 back-light and  FN+F12 sleep mode is working but after wakeup its
 starting to sleep again and again after wakeup
 *My bluetooth is witched on with FN+F11 but no blue-tooth detected
 (sorry I forgot to listed with lsusb before installing ubuntu remix again)
 * Harddisk external and flashdisk is working very well.

 My Questions,request,Ideas,what I hope very soon or whatever it is.

 1. The Lubuntu in alpha stage on iso,when. Ofcourse everybody is busy.
 2. Lubuntu on flash disk image because there is alot of netbooks without
 CD or DVD.
 3. Sometimes I got netbook that has an SDcard as HDA is it compatible
 with it ?
 4. I think Lubuntu will be great for creating server from old PC's with
 GUI interface instead having console at from your nose and doing that Vi
 thing.Maybe is there somebody can make a server edition. While
 installing you can choose what of kind of server do you want to install.
 5. And nice front-end for backup that can make image of the drives.
 6. Do you guys think that thunderbird and firefox take of computer
 sources especially nower days there is allot of websites based on flash
 like  farmville it make even windows xp slow.
 7. What is the other syntax like dmesg and lsusb that I can use to get
 info out of my toys and to send to you guys.
 8. Last thing that I want to say is.. I am sorry for starting asking
 allot of questions even the alpha  is not out yet...

 Well guys thats it... I hope its enough for the input.

[Lubuntu-desktop] Fwd: [Lxde-list] New release of LXSession, lxde-common, and lxpanel

2009-12-10 Thread Mario Behling
Dear all,

below some info important info for lubuntu from the lxde mailing list.

Best,

Mario

Subject: [Lxde-list] New release of LXSession, lxde-common, and lxpanel
To: lxde-list lxde-l...@lists.sourceforge.net


No new strings are added/removed from all the apps, so no translation
update is needed.

The following changes were done:

lxde-common:
 * nuoveXT2 icon theme is removed from lxde-common and is moved to
lxde-icon-theme package instead.
 * startlxde script now executes 'lxsession -s LXDE -e LXDE' rather
than 'lxsession -s LXDE' to reflect the changes in lxsession.
 * unnecessary files are removed

lxsession:
* new command line argument: -e
 This let you set the internal name of the DE. This value is exported
via env. variable $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP.
 The DE name can be used to match desktop files which contain
compatible OnlyShowIn and NotShowIn key values.
* the -s argument was reserved for session name only and was used to
load related config files for the desktop session.
 For example, you can execute:
 lxsession -s Lubuntu -e LXDE
 This should load config files from Lubuntu dir, but the DE is still
recognized as LXDE by applications.

 So Lubuntu devs if you see this, please upgrade to this version and
remove unnucessary patches you previously did. Your session profile
can be renamed to Lubuntu but please keep using -e LXDE. Otherwise
LXDE applications won't show in your application menu.

lxpanel:
* determine visibility of applications in menu by comparing OnlyShowIn
and NotShowIn key values and $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP.
 That means, if you like, you can have lxpanel show Gnome menu by the following
 export XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=GNOME
 Then lxpanel will show gnome applications instead of LXDE ones.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] New programs by default

2009-12-08 Thread Mario Behling
Hi,

thanks for starting the work on Lucid. Can we update

I agree, that we need to look out for lightweight options for applications.

About the applications you are proposing.

xfce task manager - I know that lxtask has some bugs, but we defined
it in the applications list. Please let us know, what is the reason to
change it?

parcellite - seems good to me.

Osmo - I wonder how compatible we should try to keep it with other
solutions. Import and export functionality of data seems to be very
rudimentary? I found ical can be exported. What do you think?

language-selector - very useful!

software-properties-gtk - good idea

How about lxlauncher - where would be a good place to have a button to
change desktop mode? Do you agree that a switchable desktop mode would
be a good idea?

Regards,

Mario

 - hardinfo : for information on the system
 - osmo : for managing event, calendar ...
 - language-selector : for installing language packs

 The splash is still missing, but as plymouth was just uploaded, I prefer

 If you think the seed need other programs to be added (not replaced !),
 please speak now :)

 For discussion on existing applications, please begin a new thread or a
 new page on the wiki. Please also note this :
 - Only propose application which are in the archive (not PPA, official
 archive). Exceptions are lxde components (like lxdm) and chromium which
 should be added to official repository soon.
 - Prepare some arguments :) The actual policy is to keep the existing

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Ubuntu submit sessions for Lubuntu

2009-11-15 Thread Mario Behling
Hi,

thanks a lot for the info. I am organizing the GNOME.Asia Summit in
Vietnam at the moment with core participation of LXDE. So, I am afraid
I do not have time to participate remotely.

Even though remote participation is generally difficult, I still hope
we can push our goals with the help of Paul Liu and Arne Goetje, who I
talked to in Taiwan a few days ago. I would like to see a get together
of Lighweight Ubuntu developers and LXDE developers. Since most of
them are in Asia, it would be best to meet up here. March or April
2010 would be a good time. I hope we can get the support of Canonical
for such an event.

I am very happy with David Sugar's involvement in lubuntu. He has done
a great job involving more people. Still, I would like to support to
(also) have an upstream developer of LXDE at Canonical focusing on
lubuntu. Paul Liu is a core member of LXDE and is responsible for the
LXDE packages in Ubuntu for a long time. As, I see only very few
developers of Canonical in Asia. For example here in Vietnam there are
a lot of people interested to become l/Ubuntu developers. To make this
a success we need face to face developer gatherings and workshops.

I hope we can get these ideas to Canonical apart from development goals.

All the best,

Mario

a more lightweight browser.

At the moment I have not seen a browser that is convincing. We have

In Taiwan some said, the best choice might be to take Chrome, maybe
the version without the Google data collection functions.

 from my personal experience, arora fits very well as my main browser, it
 supports the main state-of-the art technologies (javascript+ajax, flash,
 java applets etc), has the main features you find in firefox (ad-block,
 live-http, privacy mode, tabbed surfing, smart bar).

 in the bottom line, it's just as great as firefox, just much faster and
 slimmer. matches perfectly the lubuntu/lxde way, as I see it.

thank you very much for working on the logo. Please publish it on the
forum. We had a lubuntu meetup yesterday in Taipei as well and several
people work on artwork here as well.

Actually the current logo was a temporary one. We have many good logos
on the forum of lxde: http://forum.lxde.org/viewtopic.php?f=13t=437 .
we should decide soon, which one to use in future.

We can use the upcoming months to get more lubuntu artwork and themes done.

A stable release of lubuntu will include the new PCManFM and be
offered in first quarter 2010.

All the best,

[Lubuntu-desktop] Mplayer, Qt4, Lubuntu release date, Modular installer

2009-09-18 Thread Mario Behling
Dear all,

I would like to exchange with you some thoughts that came up in an
exchange with PCMan concerning using Mplayer, Qt4 and the release date
of lubuntu.

I agree with PCMan that we should get feedback from the community
first before releasing a stable lubuntu. The current lubuntu is
already quite good, but there will probably be some bugs that we dont
know, besides bugs that we know of e.g. in PCManFM. As PCMan is
working on a new version of the file manger, I hope we will be able to
include it.

Read on below.

- Mario

-- Forwarded message --
From: PCMan

Hi all
Clearly Mplayer has the best performance on old machines which are the
target of Lubuntu.
However, the usability of currently available mplayer GUI frontend are
quite problematic.
SMplayer, although being developed with Qt4, undoubtedly has quite
good usability compared with others. Qt4 is not a problem. It's
bigger, but it's not very big. Besides, there will be more and more
applications written in Qt4 in the future. Denying the use of Qt4 is
quite unwise, IMHO. If you can find something that are as good, feel
free to replace it. But the problem is, there isn't. The other usable
player should be VLC, which is also written in Qt4, too. Xine is yet
another solution, but it doesn't have good performance, and the
usability is not good, either. So it's good for nothing. Rather than
including something that is good for nothing, I'd rather include
something that at least give you good usability. This is the
rationale.

Another concern is, can we postpone the release of Lubuntu? Rather
than releasing something new but broken, I'd rather release it when
it's really ready. Give the users something that is half-done is not a
good way for marketing.
I'm confident that Lubuntu will be ready for everyday use at the time
of next Ubuntu LTS release. However, if we want to make it for 9.10,
we might end up with a broken distro that is problematic. IMHO,
keeping it in Alpha or Beta status is more preferable. Then just use
9.10 release to get enough feedback from the users. Things should be
ready in Q1, 2010. Then the next LTS will be the right time for first
official release of Lubuntu.

For application selection, I'd suggest creating a modular installer
and let the user choose what they want. This doesn't need to be
included in the Ubuntu installer. We can run a app selection wizard at
first-time startup. This can be the perfect solution for application
selection.

Any thoughts?

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Following IRC Meeting 2009-09-06

2009-09-11 Thread Mario Behling
Dear all,

please go to the page for the release management discussion and vote
for the way for release management.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/ReleaseManagementDiscussion

Some suggested to close the lubuntu team out of a worry that we could
run into commit wars, if there is no control. There was no problem
until now. At the moment the number of contributors actually working
on the code is relatively small, but we could potentially have
challenges with difficult team members in the future is the argument.
In order to have more people actually contributing we should define
diferent jobs that need to be done.

Concerning the closed/open team discussion there are three options now:

1. keep the way we work as is, observe how things go and decide when
there is an issue

2. decide to keep the team open and define policies to follow

3. decide to make a closed release team


With any choice we take now, we will still be able to get the seed
into the repository. There are so called MOTUs, who look if the seeds
and packages build. The responsibility what is in the seed is the
teams responsibility. So, the issue here is that we could avoid future
discussions, if someone does not stick to team decisions. In such
cases we would of course also have the ability to exclude people as
well.

Still, there is the fact, that other teams in Ubuntu work as closed
teams and according to Canonical members here, it would be an
advantage to have closed teams.

Please vote now on the page.

Thank you,

Mario

 Lol!  While I appreciate the vote of confidence, the goal was NEVER to
 have a dictatorship, benevolent or otherwise!

Thanks for making this clear. The goal for lubuntu was from the start
to build a strong and broad community, that can take care of tasks.
For example Debian packages that have been made available during
recent months by Andrew Lee and others were also planned and released
to lay the groundwork for lubuntu.

 I think what Scott says about some form of formalizing governance is
 actually very correct.

How should a formalizing governance look like? Is it necessary at this stage?

 However, the meta package (any meta-package
 instance) has a snapshot instance of the seed; it does not pull or re-
 germinate it when it builds.  Hence, as long as it is safe at the time
 of submission, a given update of the package will be safe, well, at
 least for the current one.  Also, we could setup a separate release
 subteam that is not open commit, and have it moved to there.  I think we
 should hold a quick IRC meeting in any case to ratify some basic
 governance...

I suggest to meet on IRC freenode #lubuntu
on Sep. 6, 15.00 GMT

 Ah, that's good to hear.

 IMO, another lubuntu package is not necessary, because there is already
 lxde meta-packages which pull LXDE components (see lxde-common source
 package). If we are not happy with this, we could modify it to include
 packages we want, instead of splitting the seed.

 Actually, we at least need a separate theme package. Personally, I
 don't care for most of the default applications currently included, so
  I'd rather install some meta-package that pulls a theme and sets it
 as the default, in addition to pulling core LXDE packages.

 Is there any way I could branch the seed and propose changes to that
 via a branch, before the team agrees on what the meta-package will be
 and makes a first upload?

[Lubuntu-desktop] lubuntu development model - Seeds vs UCK

2009-06-22 Thread Mario Behling
Hello,

we had a talk among different people about a good model for building
the lubuntu distribution. A sustainable model suggested by some is the
Seed model practiced by the Xubuntu developers.

There are solutions like Ubuntu Customization Kid
(http://uck.sourceforge.net´) and Reconstructor
(http://reconstructor.aperantis.com) out there. However, they have
some drawbacks and I am not sure how we can build a model to include
different people in the process.

I see the seeds model as a viable way to make lubuntu sustainable.
There is a wiki page on the kubuntu wiki with more information:

Seeds are the lists of packages we want to include in the
distribution. The minimal, boot, standard, desktop, and either ship or
live seeds go onto our CDs. Xubuntu seeds, being built on top of
Ubuntu, inherit a shared set of seeds called the platform seeds.
These platform seeds are maintained by Ubuntu Core Developers whereas
the Xubuntu seeds are primarily taken care of by Xubuntu developers.
Xubuntu seeds (as with all Ubuntu flavors) manage their seeds using
the bazaar revision control system and host them on launchpad (build
scripts pull the official seeds to build the cd).
(https://wiki.kubuntu.org/Xubuntu/Development/Build)

More information on Seed Management here
https://wiki.kubuntu.org/SeedManagement.

What do you think about it?

Best,

Mario

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu wiki revision ready for review

2009-05-27 Thread Mario Behling
Hi,

thanks for your good work. I changed it a bit before switching it
over. For the moment I would like to keep the dicussion about
applications to include on one page. So we can minimize clicks to
discuss. We can change it after the discussion is finished.

I copied it on one page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Applications

Best,

Mario

   thanks a lot. It looks great.
  
   I think, we could replace it immediately. It is not

  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.

 Hi David,

 I have taken the liberty to synchronise the recent changes to 
 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/ at 
 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/LubuntuFirstBis

 Please check that everything is in order before switching 
 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/LubuntuFirstBis over.



 Cheers,

 Luther




 Hello Luther,

 Thanks for taking care of that. I was just sitting down to do that this
 AM when I noted that you did it, and that Mario had switched the root
 page to the new version.

 Heh. All my work done for me while I slept! (8-

 Hello All,

 The draft restructuring of the Lubuntu pages on the Ubuntu wiki are
 ready for your review. Please have a look, check the links, kick the
 tires, etc. Please send error reports or other comments back to this
 mailing list. You can fix things yourself too, of course. It's a wiki.

 Once we are happy with it, the page linked below (or whatever the final
 draft is) will replace the current https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu main
 page.

 Please start here:

 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/LubuntuFirstBis

 Regards  Thanks for your comments,
