Re: Back on 13.10 release - Lxsession Edit


  Ooh... I like that mockup. I installed Google Chrome on 13.10 for my son,
and I was having a hard time figuring out how to set the default browser
back to Firefox.

I could do that, because you're tool does all my tweak mockup showed, and a
few things more. Just adding more tabs to my mockup and filling with your
tool ;)

Well, I'm completely agree with the actual design of lxsession-default-app,
for now is more a debug tool, that a real user tool. One of my goal for
this cycle is to make it better. I worked more on the backend than on the
UI last cycle. Again (I probably said it a couple of times already), any UI
input are welcomed.
