Hi all,

I just checked our Minimal Install guide
at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/DocumentationHelp/MinimalInstall.

I don't know why we use sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends
lubuntu-desktop command to install Lubuntu. With --no-install-recommends
we only have Lubuntu with PCManFM, Leafpad, LXTerminal, Synaptic, Update
Manager and Preferred Applications.

As I understand, Minimal Install is for people who want to get a full
Lubuntu desktop by installing via a Ubuntu minimal CD or USB because they
can't use Ubiquity.
Using --no-install-recommends could make newbie confused when their
desktops almost have nothing.

My understanding is different although I don't know which of us is
correct. For mine if all you're trying to do is avoid Ubiquity then
why not just use the alternate installer? To me the minimal
installation is just that, the bare minimum. From what I understand
the minimum install is aimed at REALLY low end computers or people not
wanting to download lots of data over the internet. If you have a
really low end computer you only want the bare minimum, if you don't
want to download large ISOs why would you want to download all the
other stuff anyway?

I'm happy to be proved wrong but I just have a different understanding
and hoping to clear the issue for both our sakes.


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 :)

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Menu

2011-02-25 Thread Phil Lockhart
Got to agree with Yorvyk on the menu icon lacking something.  I find it
a little difficult to see on my test machine's monitor.

 Could System Tools and Preferences be placed in alphabetical order please,

 The menu icon.  It's very nice but, there appears to be a lack of contrast or 
 something.  It looks like it's been left in a shop window for years and 
 faded.  I just can't put my finger on the problem but, it just doesn't work 
 for me.
 
 I have not said anything earlier about these things as I wanted to give them 
 time to see if they became less of an irritation.  Sadly they haven't and 
 they somehow detract from the generally 'slicker' feel that Natty is starting 
 to show.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Menu

sorry, I mean the Ozone menu icon.  I've fallen back to the default as
it's easier to see

 You mean the 2 sub-menus itself, of the contents of each menu ?

 Is it with all themes, or just the default one ? I don't understand what
 is the problem here.
