Why in https://phab.lubuntu.me/w/lubuntu-dev/new-code/ this appear to be C++? It could be done in Python to.

I thinks that this from bugie is a little overwhelming

Agreed. We can tone it down a bit. Feren OS did the same here.

As pointed out above we have a start to a welcome center in rWELCOME . It should now compile and run. In addition all of the buttons that are there actually work (they do something that seems appropriate). There is still some work to be done however IMO.

  1. Theming could be enhanced a bit (maybe quite a bit?).
  2. Add buttons for:
    1. Donate
    2. Software -Discover, Muon, something.
    3. Bug reporting.
  3. Debian Packaging.
  4. Currently the release version is hardcoded, it should probably pull from /etc/os-release or something.
  5. Autostart / disabling autostart needs code, there is an incomplete commented section.

We've entered uncharted territory for my skills so help is appreciated/requested.

I've been hacking away at this (quite literally) and I have added the buttons I think we needed and removed the monitor config button. I have applied a little (maybe very little) better theming in my opinion. Still need the autostart piece to function, if anyone has some ideas on that it would be appreciated. Also, much of the text is hardcoded, there is probably a better way to do that too. Currently functional though.
