Much better :-)

Just been having a general play (importing accounts to pidgin and 
chromium etc).


I did notice that x-chat is there as an IRC agent. When I was running 
it with 10.04 Ubuntu, I found it quite greedy for processor time (3 
seconds / 10 seconds) - My laptop fan was running quite a lot.


Since changing to pidgin for IRC, I have a much quieter computer (and 
an un-burned lap)


As pidgin is going to be shipped, is x-chat required ? I'm just 
wondering what affect it was Vs pidgin on lower spec processors.
Pidgin is IMHO no real IRC client and misses a lot of features and 
behaviors in this regard.


I know that disk mounting was mentioned, but does / is lubuntu going 
to have the equivalent of Places to provide a GUI for mounting 
partitions, it is quite conceivable for a low specification computer 
to be dual booting.
As I saw it in the pcmanfm2 code it is planned to have a desktop icon 
for each mounted devices (perhaps even unmounted devices, if you want to 
mount them) + Drives and partitions will appear in the bookmarkspanel on 
the left.


Apart from that, absolutely fantastic !!!

Phill.

Thanks for the test.

 Hi,
 
 I have a strange issue with the installer: if I start an English
 LiveCD session, then try to install a Russian version of Lubuntu, the
 installer displays ??? strings on the keyboard layout selection
 screen (see attached screenshot). I type some (Latin) chars into the
 test box and click Next without changing anything else. After I
 click through to screen #6 (user information), I cannot proceed since
 the keyboard is somehow blocked: no alphanumeric keys work at all.
 However, something else works: space, enter, arrows, ins, home, end,
 del, pageup, pagedown, | and \ (same key with and without Shift),
 maybe something else (don't know how to test Ctrl, Alt, Esc,
 functionals, etc.)
 
 Installing a Russian version from a Russian LiveCD session works fine.
 Selecting German or some Indian layout (line #8 from the bottom of the
 list) works in an English LiveCD session. (Works means it does not
 lock the keyboard, I didn't run any installation to the end so far.)
 
 Selecting Greek l11n from an English LiveCD session yields those
 ?? lines, but does not lock the keyboard.
 
 I understand this can be the base Ubuntu issue, but currently I have
 no time to download the daily iso and play with it, sorry. Hopefully
 someone else can do it...
Yes probably, or maybe it's the lack of language support on the Live-CD.
It's something to test when the installer will be more stable.

 
 Sincerely,
 Mikhail Maksimov
 
 PS There're also some annoying ureadahead error messages during the
 boot, but those don't seem to be harmful. I have also seen such
 messages when I tested 20100215 iso on a physical machine. I think
 someone else mentioned those here on the list, too.
Yes, but the standard version of Ubuntu have also this messages. So I
hope it will be fixed in the future :)

This was with out any swap, it functions OK with a swap partition on the

XChat crashes and Chromium just slows to a a near standstill, taking 30-40

As I said, with a swap partition everything is OK but slooow.

This is a known issue of lxdm. Please contact dgod as he might know

When lxdm is used along with lxsession, sometimes this happens.

Apparantly this is yet another dbus-related problem.
Using this feature requires both of dbus and policy-kit working.
You even need a policykit agent. Currently the only choice is polkit-gnome.
By default polkit-gnome's authentication agent is turned off outside Gnome.
This needs to be turned on in its desktop file installed ot /etc/xdg/autostart.
TODO:
1. make sure dbus is correctly launched.
2. make sure policykit agent is running.

But i use virtual host on VmWare, maybe this is the source of problem. For now,

2010-02-26 Thread Leszek Lesner
Hi,

here are some bugs I noticed(from the LiveCD so far):

- Boot Screen of the LiveCD is not fully localized (the first two entries Try 
Lubuntu and Install Lubuntu) (misses on the Bug Repot Testing Page) 
- Borderless windows (like the small mixer window that appears after clicking 
the soundpanel applet) have borders (that allows them to even close the 
soundpanel applet and it won't open up again) 
- clicking on the trash icon in pcmanfm2 gives an error message (operation 
not supported) (moved files won't show up)
- pcmanfm2 after open folder as root : it opens up but is missing the warning 
that you are working with root rights now
- applications:/// is not working (I know it is still work in progress)
- Are the PATHs alright ? Trying to run arp -a as user gives me an error that 
it is in /usr/sbin and /usr/sbin is not in path. (It wasn't there before in 
ubuntu. Did they change/fixed there security policy ?)
- pcmanfm2 misses translation (I know is still coming but I don't want to not 
mention it so that we don't forget about this)
- same for gnumeric
- pcmanfm2 desktop creating new document or folder does not work
- pcmanfm2 still misses to lighten up font color and icon if you choose to cut 
out a file (only a optical glitch)
-pcmanfm2 sorting files and folders(particullary ascending and descending) 
does not work in every view or sometimes simply does nothing (seems not 
reproducable but happens unoccasionaly)
- pcmanfm2: A problem I have with detailed list view is that I cannot access 
easily the properties of the current open folder. If you have a folder with 
lots of files you are not able to rightclick on a free space. The only 
solution press go up and right click the folder you where in to get to the 
properties. Possible solution: Create a folder icon in front of the adressbar 
and make it useable like a normal icon folder (drag n drop, right click etc.)


These are the bugs I noticed so far in a quick 15 minute test. 
 
One big feature request for pcmanfm2 (future releases not crucial to this 
lubuntu release):
Add a right click submenu that opens up the folder content when hovering. This 
is a very nice feature that was originally integrated in BeOS and would make 
working on desktop and in folders amazingly fast.

 One big feature request for pcmanfm2 (future releases not crucial to this
 lubuntu release):
 Add a right click submenu that opens up the folder content when hovering. This
 is a very nice feature that was originally integrated in BeOS and would make
 working on desktop and in folders amazingly fast.
 Here a screenshot:

wow, I love the idea :D kinda resembles browsing files on fluxbox or
by windows taskbar (i mean when you put desktop bar to it), but seems
more practical this way

another quick test: the alpha runs great, fast and quite stable.  Some
problems with pcmanfm2 , but its still in developement so thats okay (for
example no auto-mount of usb drives, and i couldn't mount my usb-sticks at
all).
the new design is great.
I also like Leszek's idea: is it too late for including that, or is it still
possible? if yes, we should do that.

best regards
jo

2010-02-26 Thread Steve

Alpha 3

Live session runs in 128MB RAM but launching an application crashes it,  
not surprising really.


Install takes about 1½ hours, not bad considering lack of speed and  
memory, slow(4x) CD drive as well.


Neither CDs or flash drives auto-mount, though the floppy drive now  
appears.


The panel can’t be moved to the top, with out editing the config file nor  
does transparency work any more either.  This used to work in Alphas 1  2.


I’ll report more as it’s used more.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 3 Shiny

2010-02-26 Thread Phill Whiteside
Much better :-)

Just been having a general play (importing accounts to pidgin and chromium
etc).

I did notice that x-chat is there as an IRC agent. When I was running it
with 10.04 Ubuntu, I found it quite greedy for processor time (3 seconds /
10 seconds) - My laptop fan was running quite a lot.

Since changing to pidgin for IRC, I have a much quieter computer (and an
un-burned lap)

As pidgin is going to be shipped, is x-chat required ? I'm just wondering
what affect it was Vs pidgin on lower spec processors.

I know that disk mounting was mentioned, but does / is lubuntu going to have
the equivalent of Places to provide a GUI for mounting partitions, it is
quite conceivable for a low specification computer to be dual booting.

Apart from that, absolutely fantastic !!!

Regards,

Phill.

[Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 3 Shiny

2010-02-25 Thread Julien Lavergne
Hi,

The Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 3 is now available. 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.

We passed Feature Freeze, that mean most of the features should now be
available. It's now time for testing and fixing bugs.

New features since Alpha 2 :
* Main changes in the seed :
 - chromium for the browser
 - gnome-mplayer for the videos
 - network-manager for the network

* pcmanfm2, the rewrite of the file-manager, is now used by default.

* New artwork made by Rafael Laguna.

* 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:
* 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 :
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/SubTeams/TestingSubTeam

* Specific pages for pcmanfm2 bugs :
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/SubTeams/TestingSubTeam/pcmanfm2Testing

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.
