kc2bez lowered the priority of T108: Drop or change pkexec patch in Calamares from High to Low.

I will bump this to 20.04. We are waiting on an upstream fix for this ultimately (2 of them actually, one for Cala to run firefox as the user and one for LXQt to respect proper .desktop menu items). I also lowered the priority it isn't a showstopper that we have two menu items just somewhat annoying.

A bug in Calamares has been reported by at least 2 individuals. @guiverc and I were unable to reproduce. I am in America, New York, quite possible the worst location for testing since it is the default. However Chris is not in the default zone and was able to get the proper one automatically. It would be appreciated if some other folks could test for this bug in other time zones.

kc2bez added a comment to T96: investigate yshui's compton fork.

I had a good test on my Acer Laptop. Laptop is somewhat low on resources. 1st gen i5 with 4G of RAM that is shared with the onboard Intel graphics. As far as resource usage it was almost identical with the original compton. 457 M for the original and 460 M for the new one. I had around 430 M with no compton installed. I used htop for all three measurements. I notice a bit of stuttering with both versions when moving windows around. I also tested the compton-conf that is shipped in Lubuntu and that seems to manage the config file fine. I see no downside currently.

We should bounce this to 20.04 IMHO. There are some issues still upstream, this one impacts us. Then there is this, this and this.
To top it off, I can't see where you can remove packages, only add them, we'd have to tinker on that too. As much as I would like to see it, I don't think it is ready for us at this time.

I think some of the key to success here may be in having swap (see T22). I setup a VM with a 2Gib swap space and 478Mib. I left it running overnight and RAM utilization was 113 Mib. As a side note the web was browse-able, perhaps not optimal by any stretch but functional. Swap isn't a cure-all and may not be the ideal solution for everything but it can sometimes help. I know I just threw some more variables in the mix but I think we need to look at that too.
