 That would be great. We do need such team which should NOT be isolated
 from Ubuntu Team (sorry if I didn't explain myself previously). The
 Marketing Team Members are Lubuntu Members who will be dedicated to do
 one main job/task and that will be Marketing.

 Also, we do need a Wiki or Documentation Team.
In my mind, the teams should be free to organize themself, and to work
as they like. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Teams_New for my first
ideas on the topic.

 What about a Sub-Forum on LXDE Forum? if that's possible, it would be
 great since I'm a moderator there. However, someone must do something
 please about the continuous problem on LXDE Website. It's up and down
 and when it's up, it's very slow.
It sounds like a good idea.

 What I'm thinking and wondering about: Having more resources depends
 on money or something else? also, if we are an official variant for
 Ubuntu then it's not bad idea at all if Canonical spend something to
 improve Lubuntu in any possible way. I have no idea how their system
 work and to be honest don't want to be involved, I have enough stuff
 to care about but I was just wondering.
 I'll keep searching for people who can really support us financially.
 In case I find someone, what shall I do?
We never discuss the financial case, and it's quite a complex topic :)
Imagine, you want to give 10 € to Lubuntu, how do you share it between
people who make Lubuntu :
- Lubuntu project (and who in the Lubuntu project ?)
- Ubuntu project (because we are based on Ubuntu)
- Debian project (because we are besed on Ubuntu, which is base on Debian)
- LXDE project (because we used many LXDE components)
- Other upstream projects (kernel, abiword, gnome-mplayer ...)
- ...

One idea is to have in the software-center a button to support upstream
projects, or / and having a page with all the support links.

But, money doesn't do all. For an open source project, we primarily need
users, developers, testers, and people who spread the work :)

 Well, I think there is a bug using these on both Lubuntu 11.10 and 11.04.
 On 11.10, adding the above two packages will not add the username.
 Adding the username must be done through indicator-me which is gone
 in 11.10 and no longer in the repositories.
 http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/07/ubuntu-11-10-menu-goodbye/

 As for 11.04, indicator-me package is still in the repositories but
 when I added it and rebooted, it's done and on PCManFM, there is no
 File, Edit, etc ... I have no idea what happened.

 There is already some bugs and I commented on one of them but can't
 find it right now.
 I have asked that question because there is a case where there are 3
 different users are using the same PC and they want something to
 display the name of the current logged in user beside a feature to
 switch to another user.
 indicator-me package has 126 files to be downloaded and installed. I
 was wondering if it's impossible to use indicator me in 11.10, is
 there any other alternative?
Maybe (just a guess) it's because lxdm doesn't support switching user,
so adding indicator-session doesn't show the user name, because it's an
indicator for switching user.

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...

Canonical doesn't provide direct financial support, unless they have

Using indicator-session-gtk2 + the indicator applet of lxpanel should
work. The support for indicators in Lubuntu is not perfect, some of them
have need Ubuntu / GNOME components to run properly.

Hello Julien,

No, on Ubuntu Forum, there is no dedicated Sub-Forum for the other variant
(Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu or Lubuntu) but instead, there is Prefix
Feature: http://i52.tinypic.com/i2ks2s.jpg

I totally understand and actually SUPPORT the idea of keeping Lubuntu as it
is on Ubuntu Forum but I'm not really sure whether having a Sub-Forum on
Ubuntu Forum for Lubuntu is a good or bad idea?
Ubuntu Forum has many Sub-Forum (Absolute Beginner Talk, General Help,
Hardware and Laptops, Multimedia and Video, Desktop Environment, etc) and I
was just wondering how good or bad if Lubuntu will have a Sub-Forum just
like the other Categories? we are NOT isolating it, we are just Organizing
it. As long as it will have Clear and Obvious Category, everyone can jump
in and help. I see lots of posts from people who are not Lubuntu Users but
they are willing to help and I see that daily, not to mention those who
help out with testing :)

Great!

I see no reason why we couldn't have a forum-Ubuntu has one, Kubuntu has one, 
presumably Xubuntu is gnashing their teeth to have one...

About adding your name, find the location of the default panel pic and write 
over it in gimp. :)

Hi A. J.

I've had a quick chat with a couple of people regarding advertising, the
advice is to make yourself known via
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuAdvertsStart there and see how things

[Lubuntu-desktop] Me, again

2011-09-02 Thread Phill Whiteside
Hi,

as we got the Lubuntu beta 1's  out  Please appreciate that for me, official
Lubuntu is very new. For those in charge of getting the iso's fixed I will
buy a drink for.

We've have had https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Testing up as our area for a
while, with the little pause between beta 1 and beta 2, if some of you good
people could have a crawl over it and let me know what I need to alter to
bring in both the QA releases and daily ones. As an aside, I did not see any
apple mac iso's available, they were there earlier under daily builds - Whom
should I ask about that.

(I'm going to murder the Lunbunteer who down loaded  verified the alternate
image whilst I had dinner with my parents :P ) Whilst I am not the 1st to
test things, as an admin I do track them :)

Thank you to all for the kindness you have shown the baby of the family.

Regards,

Phill.
