Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu Natty Beta 1 released

2011-04-04 Thread Zoltan Matlak
 The Lubuntu Natty Beta 1 ISO is now available for testing.

 - New theme made by Raphael Laguna
Really nice! Love the new look.

A question: I installed LibreOffice on top of beta1, and it's menu
fonts look horrible (tried Writer, Calc, etc..all the same). Any idea
how can I configure the libreoffice suite to look good under lubuntu?
Any tips?

Thanks
Zoltan

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Virtualbox and lubuntu-natty-alpha-20110228-i386.iso

2011-02-28 Thread Zoltan Matlak
Thanks Jonathan, I followed your settings and it booted. I use OSX
10.5 and VB 4.0.4.

In VB went to Settings - System - Motherboard: chipset to PIIX3 is
the default (left it that way), l set/checked the Enable IO APIC
checkbox as you suggested (it was unckecked by default), then under
System - Processor the Enable PAE was unchecked (left it that way),
then under System - Acceleration unchecked the Enable VT-x/AMD-V (it
was checked by default).

Thanks

 Great, thanks for testing and for reporting this.  I want to narrow this
 issue down further.

 For me, it boots fine in virtualbox 4.0.4 on Win7 64bit (at work).

 For me here at home, earlier I *thought* it would not boot in virtualbox
 4.0.4 under Ubuntu 10.04.2 amd64 ... but then I found a workaround:

 If I set that VM to NOT use hardware virtualization, and to NOT use PAE,
 and I set the chipset to PIIX3 and enable the IO APIC, *then* I can get
 these images (Julien's and mine) to boot.

 Please let us know what host OS and what exact version of virtualbox you
 are using.  Then try the settings I mentioned for your Lubuntu VM, and
 see if they help.

 Thanks,

 Jonathan

[Lubuntu-desktop] lxde ppa pcmanfm 0.9.8 mounting volumes

Hi,

I added lxde ppa to my 10.10 lubuntu. Got latest pcmanfm (0.9.8), but
my mapped volumes (other partitions) do not show up anymore. I have 2
other partitions that used to automount and show up in the earlier
filemanager (0.9.7). Now are gone. In my pcmanfm, under preferences @
Auto-mount option I have all checkboxes checked. If I insert a USB
stick it gets mounted and shows up in the filemanager.

Any help is appreciated.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu for anyone?

2010-12-29 Thread Zoltan Matlak
Hi Tim  all,

I asked the same questions to myself several times :)

I tried to fully switch to Lubuntu several times but till now I always
went back to regular Ubuntu. I love Lubuntu's (LXDE's) simplicity and
leanness, but for various reasons there is always some small bug or
misbehavior that makes me go back to Ubuntu. I would love to have a
100% perfect Lubuntu (as most probably everybody here does), and make
a complete switch to this distribution, but it did not happen so far.
It is very clear to everybody who uses it that it becomes better and
better with each release. 11.04 is (or will be) better that 10.10 and
much better that 10.04. Congrats and big thank to everybody who puts
long hours and energy creating this new distribution polished.

The goal is clear, it is for old computers and/or low resource
computers (sometimes it's the same thing) and average people who just
installs it and uses it (no tweaking should be required).

However there is a user group (including myself in here) who uses it
on more powerful computers and likes this distro for it's leanness (or
looks?).

Of course it's frustrating if something does not work, but people here
on this mailing list are very friendly and helpful, help is almost
immediate. Thanks for this also!

Thank you Lubuntu/LXDE Team and I'm looking forward for the second beta image :)
Zoltan

 Hi everyone,
 I was thinking about this the past couple of days and figured I would throw
 it out there.  Does Lubuntu handle basic tasks well enough that anyone can
 use it?
 I've been using Ubuntu since 6.04 and by 8.04 I pretty much gave up Windows
 all together.  (I keep a copy on my machine just in case, but never really
 need to use it.)  I've also played around with Fedora and more recently
 Peppermint and Lubuntu.  In addition, I took two Red Hat Enterprise
 Linux Administrator course while finishing up my Enterprise Computer
 Programming degree at a local community college.
 Despite all of that I am NOT a expert Linux user.  I prefer GUI over command
 line for most tasks.  And I usually have to do a little research when trying
 to solve issues with my OS.  I can do the basics in Linux, but really not
 much more without Google.  So I would say I'm armed with a lot more
 Linux knowledge than your typical newbie, but not really skilled at it using
 it.
 So here's the deal.  I've run across several issues while using Lubuntu that
 have consume a little more of my time that I would have liked.  Mostly just
 little things, but they have all been things that I would expect my OS to
 handle out of the box.
 Here is my short list:
 1. Installing from USB didn't work until I made the USB without storage.
 2. Grub not updating after install.
 3. Chrome not opening downloads properly until I changed xdg-open.
 4. Having to learn how to add menu items to lxde.
 5. Not being able to find my NAS from PCmanFM.
 6. Loosing some of my changes when Lubuntu updates. (Am I doing something
 wrong here???)
 I'll admit that the list isn't too bad, but keep in mind that I had to spend
 a good bit of time researching and implementing the solutions.
 So the question is what is the ultimate goal for Lubuntu.  I know you guys
 want it to be resource friendly.  But who is it aimed at?  The Linux geek
 who can tweak it or the average Joe who just want to be able to use it?
  Can it be resource friendly and not need tweaking? Is it just a matter of
 time to sort it out or a matter philosophy?
 Personally, I would like to see it stay lightweight AND handle all of the
 basics at the same time.  I realize Lubuntu is young and the devs are
 busting their asses on it.  I really do appreciate it, but I really believe
 that details matter and I hoping the Lubuntu team agrees because I want
 Lubuntu to succeed.
 Thanks for listening,
 Tim

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] proxy setup?

2010-12-13 Thread Zoltan Matlak
Installed Rabbit4.8 (a simple java proxy, which is really easy to use
by the way), and got it up and running in no time. Probably squid is
also easy to set up, I just did not have the time to try it. LXProxy
is not acceptable for me, since logging out and back again is not
something I would do for a proxy setting change.

Unfortunatelly in Chromium 8.0.552.215 (67652) Ubuntu 10.10, I can not
add proxy configuration to my browser. When I click on Change proxy
settings, I'm getting:

When running Chromium under a supported desktop environment, the
system proxy settings will be used. However, either your system is not
supported or there was a problem launching your system configuration.

But you can still configure via the command line. Please see man
chromium-browser for more information on flags and environment
variables.


This is too bad.

Is this also related to the fact that LXDE is a simple window
manager ? (bug related to the issue that Chromium can not determine
if it's default browser or not):
https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=53066

Installed Midori and FF, both could be configured to use the above
mentioned proxy (in general, proxies could be added to these
browsers).

 Just open up leafpad and put the following in:

 Type=Application
 Version=1.0
 Name=Trash
 Exec=pcmanfm trash:///
 Icon=emptytrash
 Terminal=false

 Save it as trash.desktop on the Desktop. The Desktop should then show a
 Trash icon, which will open pcmanfm.  Right clicking won’t work though.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] State of the development

 Hi,

 I think it's a good time to do a quick summarize of the state of the
 development of Lubuntu.

 == About Lubuntu in the *buntu family ==

 As you may know, Lubuntu will probably not be officially part of the
 *buntu family. It doesn't mean we will never be part of it.

 More important, it will not stop us to release an iso. The question will
 be : what is the statut of this iso. Stable ? Final ? RC ? Beta ? For
 now, I'm inclined to make the statut RC, to mark we are not officially
 in Ubuntu, but target to have a stable release.

 Target for this release is still like others *buntu, end of April. We
 may have some delay, depending of the state of Lubuntu at this time.


 == About the state of Lubuntu ==

 There are several main components which are very young : pcmanfm was
 rewritten, and lxdm is quite new. I think the current state of pcmanfm
 is quite good. For lxdm, due to many changes in the boot process of
 Ubuntu, it was quite unstable during Lucid. I hope main issues are
 resolved with the version in Beta2.

 To be general, I'm quite happy with the performance result so far,
 memory usage is low, CPU usage not too bad. I'm still think it needs
 many more tests. General use cases should be ok, but intensive and
 not-classic use cases can be more problematic. That's why reporting bugs
 is important :-) We also lack some features for everyday uses. As we
 can't fix them for this release, some works will remain for futur
 release :-)

 To summarize, it's a good starting point, a preview of what Lubuntu is
 capable.

 Feedbacks over the web are mostly positive, it's a nice indicator, but
 doesn't mean it's perfect.

 To finish, it's not a technical point of view, but I think we have the
 best artwork of all *buntu version ;-)


 == About the work needed ==

 There are still a lot of works to do, I'll do a summarize when the final
 release will be out. For now, keep testing and report bugs please :-)

 Julien Lavergne

[Lubuntu-desktop] new menu item in lubuntu

2010-03-24 Thread Zoltan Matlak
I know it is an LXDE related question, but did not know where to post
it. I installed mc, then I would like to create a menu item in the
Main Menu, to launch mc in a terminal windw, without going to
lxterminal and type mc. Unfortunately could not make it work. Got
stuck. Does anybody have an idea how to do it (if it can be done)?

I created a new file, called mc.desktop under /usr/share/applications,
whick looks like:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Midnight Commander filemanager
GenericName=mc filemanager
_X-GNOME-FullName=MidnightCommander
Comment=blabla
Exec=lxterminal mc
Icon=mc
Terminal=true
Type=Application
Categories=Development;
StartupNotify=false
X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=mc

Tried different variation for Exec, just to put mc, or lxterminal
mc, also Terminal true/false, but all variations I could think of
failed..

[Lubuntu-desktop] new visual identity in lucid

2010-03-03 Thread Zoltan Matlak
*I just red on slashdot today:
Canonical has launched a new visual
identityhttp://arstechnica.com/open-source/news/2010/03/ubuntu-dumps-the-brown-introduces-new-theme.arsfor
the Ubuntu Linux distribution. Ubuntu is shedding its previous brown
look and adopting a more professional color scheme with purple and orange.
The colors will be used in a new GNOME theme and boot splash for Ubuntu
10.04. According to updated design documents that were
publishedhttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/Brandin the Ubuntu wiki, 'light' is
the underlying concept behind the new visual
identity. It displaces the 'human' concept that has been part of Ubuntu's
theming and brand vernacular for the past five years. Ubuntu community
manager Jono Bacon has posted a
screenshothttp://www.jonobacon.org/2010/03/03/refreshing-the-ubuntu-brand/and
additional information.

Question: is it a goal to have all *buntu variants use the same character
set or to have common/similar look? Just wondering if the lubuntu splash and
other logos have to be changed? (saw the xubuntu as sample on the site
that's why I raised the question)

VERY nice! Looks (and feels) more and more professional. It's shaping up
nicely. Congrats.

 Hi,

 I just created a new testing ISO. This is not an Alpha, but just a
 snapshot of the current work to be able to test more the new features.
 Like others Alpha, you should be aware that it's not considered stable,
 see warnings for Lucid Alpha :

 Pre-releases of Lucid are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable
 system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even
 frequent breakage.  They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers
 and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.

 Changes seen the Alpha 2 :
 * Main changes in the seed :
  - chromium for the browser
  - gnome-mplayer for the videos
  - network-manager for the network
 * New artwork made by Rafael Laguna. It's not the final theme, but it's
 quite complete, so we can test with a non standard artwork. And I like
 it :)
 * A new session (Lubuntu-Netbook), which launched lxlauncher. You need
 to logout, select Lubuntu-Netbook session instead of Lubuntu, and enter
 login ubuntu without password.

 Known bugs:
 * pcmanfm2 is not the default filemanager yet, it need more integration
 to be usable. It is still available by using pcmanfm2
 * If you test on a USB, the first screen will freeze for a moment when
 you click on Try Lubuntu  Just wait, it will continue as normal.
 * Bug reported during testing :

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 2 Preview 2

2010-01-25 Thread Zoltan Matlak
Experience with Alpha2 release:

1. If there is an internet connection during install it installs OpenOffice
by default. If you don't want OO, just disable your internet connection, it
worked for me...  this is just a temporary solution (I hope :)
2. Still can't change keyboard layout (no option in GUI, had to reinstall)
3. Can't change timezone (no option in GUI) - had to reinstall OS in order
to change it at setup time
4. xscreensaver /usr/share/backgrounds/ is still missing (directory has to
be created manually, same problem was there in Aplha1)
5. On my compaq nc6320 wifi card (broadcom) was not recognized (had to
install jockey-gtk). This is same in regular Ubuntu as well.
6. No flash plugin in browser (not sure if this is planned in final release
or not). I installed it manually.
7. Printing got included in this release (was missing in Alpha1), but stil
can not add printer (New and Server/Settings is disabled )


I need flash and Java (for applets) in my browser, plus my wifi card to be
recognized, so I run the following commands on top of a regular Lubuntu
install:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install jockey-gtk
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-plugin
sudo apt-get install update-manager
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get autoremove


Did some disk space measurements with df, here are the values:
clean install with openoffice.org 1.749.168
clean install without openoffice  1.129.184
after adding flashplugin, sun-java6, jockey-gtk and update-manager 1.267.352


Overall it's great, I love it, and there is visible improvement. I'm very
excited and looking forward to new releases. Let me know if I can help more.
Thanks a lot!

Zoltan

 Hi,

 The second Alpha of Lubuntu is now available for testing. Don't forget
 that it's build with Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) which is still in Alpha state
 of development, so same warnings :

 Pre-releases of Lucid are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable
 system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even
 frequent breakage.  They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers
 and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.

 There is not so much changes between Alpha 1 and Alpha 2, don't expect
 big surprises. The next release (Alpha 3), which will be released after
 the Feature Freeze, will be more interesting :)

 Features :
 - LXDE packages up-to-date
 - LXDM
 - The new pcmanfm for testing (type pcmanfm2 in a terminal)
 - Many wallpapers and start icons from lxde forum, gnome-look or Leszek
 Lesner, to be able to switch easily and to test the result
 - First customization with a splash screen from Leszek Lesner
 - Installable with ubiquity (but upgrade from this Alpha 2 to next
 release is not guaranteed).

 Known bugs:
 - Alpha 2 may not boot on karmic Virtualbox, you should upgrade
 virtualbox to avoid this problem.

 If you want to create a bootable usb system, please use the usb creator
 directly on Ubuntu.

 Please follow the testing process described on this page :
 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/SubTeams/TestingSubTeam . You can also
 report problems and bugs relative to the tests on this page.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 1 Preview

2010-01-02 Thread Zoltan Matlak
Hi,

I have a 10 year old Dell Latitude CPt (celeron 333, 512MB RAM). It's been
sitting in the closet for the past 4-5 years. Couldn't install Lubuntu on
it, neither could I run it from CD. Not sure what is the problem. During
install I saw several messages like:
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block ,
then just got a blank (black) screen and cd is spinning. Is this problem
caused by a bad CD image?
I had winXP running on it before, then I tried Masonux (ubuntu 9.10 and
LXDE), which installed and run fine. If you can guide me I can do some
debugging what to do to figure out where is the problem, but I'm not an
experienced linux user, so can't do much more right now.


Another install I did on a 5-6 year old desktop (Shuttle SS51, P4 1.8GHz,
512MB ram). No problems at all, it flies (it feels much faster than regular
Ubuntu, but not sure how can it be measured). The only problem I had is that
I only allocated 2.2GB hard disk to the partition I was installing it, and
complained that it needs at least 2.4GB, so 2.6GB did the trick :). After
installation I checked and Lubuntu uses a little more than 1GB of disk
space. Nice.


After playing with this distro for a few hours these are my remarks:
Things I changed: desktop background and the Program/Start icon, I just
simply can't get used to lxde logo. To me it seems ugly, sorry :(

Things missing by Firefox from sites I visited: Flash and Java.

Thing I miss from Ubuntu: date/time has location and temperature
notification. Can this be added somehow? What component is that in regular
Ubuntu? That's something I got used to and really miss it.

Lubuntu is a really nice, clean, lean distro. Love it more and more.

Thanks guys.
Zoltan

How do I add a printer? I guess a Printer Configuration tool would be
needed.

[Lubuntu-desktop] lubuntu desktop image?

2009-12-11 Thread Zoltan Matlak
Hi all,

There has been lots of emails about what packages to include in the new
LUbuntu distribution. Seems like the list is somewhat final. I would like to
install it and test the current version. I could not find any iso image
available. Could you please guide me what to do?

As a temporary solution what I did, is I first got a masonux distribution
(9.10 beta2, it's an Ubuntu 9.10 + LXDE distro) and then
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

Any ISO image and/or usb image would do (found some old ones from september,
but since then lot of things changed).

Thanks for your help in advance.
Zoltan
