Re: Proposed changes to lubuntu-desktop



I'd like to clarify my point, why dropping depencies to recommends is a DRAW/WIN/WIN. There are three groups of people:

1) "I like lubuntu / lubuntu-desktop the way it is, please don't tinker around"
2) "I want another program for my needs than what lubuntu-desktop is proposing"
3) "I'm low on resources, so please keep lubuntu as light as possible"

For 1), dropping depencies to recommends doesn't change the normal installation: all packages marked as recommends are installed unless specified otherwise.

For 2), you can now remove "useless" programs and install alternatives, and still keep lubuntu-desktop installed (I currently use lubuntu-core and install what I need on top of that).

For 3), you can use command line installation and "--without-recommends" when installing lubuntu-desktop.

I will gladly bury the hatchet of midori and other proposed changes to default applications.
