Re: The need to improve Lubuntu bug filing


Thanks for responding Julien. I hadn't seen the release announcement (didn't know there was one) because I subscribed to the mailing list after that. I have now however found it in the archives, and I posted the text at the forums to hopefully prevent a flood of questions or bug reports.

Regarding the lacking restart or shutdown buttons I posted a screenshot here:


Note that I could only start the DE by typing "startx". I'm not sure I know how to restart lxdm. I tried "sudo service lxdm start" and that failed, but I'm used to Gnome so I will have a learning curve to tackle with Lubuntu ;^)

Regardless don't worry much about these particular bugs. I was just trying to prepare for changing the lion's share of my iso-testing to Lubuntu once it's added to the list. I should be able to repeat tests to see if bugs exist in both Ubuntu and Lubuntu.

Regarding my original point, when I look here:


I still wonder if the package 'lubuntu-desktop' shouldn't be included as an option so people can file a bug against Lubuntu when they're otherwise unsure what specific package is involved?

I'll do everything in my power to help the project. IMHO Lubuntu is just great, besides being lightweight it could be a great "bridge" for those who don't quite love Unity and/or gnome3.

I find the DE very easy to adapt to having used gnome2 since Gutsy.

Thanks for your help. However, as I said in Alpha 1 announcement, bugs
on the ISO will probably be invalid when we will switch to the official
ISO building infrastructure.

I saw it sometimes, restarting lxdm or just waiting "fix" the problem.

Screenshot needed :)

Never see it, but pressing reboot button should not hurt too much :)
