Document building and publishing the Lubuntu Manual
Open, NormalPublic

Description

I got tired of waiting on texlive-full to install, so I'm punting this 😆

We'll need to revise this to deal with the fact that master is now LXQt and the LXDE branch is LXDE.

While you're at it, it doesn't seem like there's a link to deal with switching to translated versions.

Oh, and trim down the requirements. You could cut out games, music, and math from texlive alone, easily.

Ok just texlive instead of texlive-full is one part of this and where master is I don't have the link for the translated version yet.

I am not sure how to deal with building the translated versions yet alone linking to them.

See T112 for what we need to deal with translations and such.

Where trimming is concerned I think we should remove version numbers. I'm sure this will change with distro updates, its gonna be a pain to manage, and it doesn't add much value after updating.

Steedalion well it seems if something not want to maintain should I just replace it with a link to packages.ubuntu.com and then call it good in appendix A?

@lynorian, I like that idea because:

  1. The less to maintain the better.
  2. The site has a search option

Additionally we can add a how to under tips and tricks if you think it's necessary.

For example, this looks ugly but it passes the idea.

dpkg --status lxterminal | grep ^Version

This may be a bit off topic but should we may need to add a section for Distro upgrading using QT software? We do have a chapter that describes install using Calamaris and upgrading using software updater, but not upgrading using the newer QT software (Discovery and Muon vs software updater).
