Re: Possible bug in Ubiquity.


Hello everyone,

First of Happy New Year to everyone here. May all your dreams come true (or
if you're like me, that you may find a dream to pursuit).

Secondly I'll get more into the bugs I quickly reported on IRC. First of
all there is the "feature request" of making a link to #lubuntu webchat
page. It'll make it that much more easy to let new users find us. As we are
having our own links to our wiki and launchpad I thought it wouldn't be
that much trouble.

Thirdly there is the "real bug". As we've discussed things for development
it was asked by myself if the quick-search of Synaptic could be activated,
but Julien reported it broke down some of his systems. As such we've
decided that users could decide for themselves if they wanted it enabled or
not and put on the Release Notes of Oneiric [1] the steps to do so.
However, ever a clean install on my brothers computer I was (happily)
surprised that the quick-search was enabled by default after everything was
finished (this included the first update round after installation). Seeing
this wasn't part of how it "should" be, it is considered a bug.

I hope this clears matters.

With metta, Chris
