Not sure about the translation files, I think those typically get dropped from packaging.

More curious data: Fresh install, since it might not have any snaps installed, systemctl status snapd returns the following (inactive): https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/z5F8bZ24yM/
Immediately after installing the core snap, it returns that is now active - perhaps that's why we can start applications from the terminal.

I believe I know why a logout/login is necessary for Lubuntu and not Ubuntu. Ubuntu comes installed with snaps, in particular, the core snap. After that is installed you don't have to logout/login to have snaps show in the menu.

I am confused. Are you indicating that snaps that you install do not show in the menu? The ones I have installed do show up. I can also drag them to the quick launch on the panel.

kc2bez added a comment to T138: video manual.

This seems like it would be a nice enhancement to the fantastic manual we already have. I would be willing to help with this project as time permits. I know AntiX / MX linux has a fair bit for video content that Dolphin Oracle put together. It seems to be a well utilized resource for them. I don't think there are too many other distros that have as much content as they do. I think like the current manual this could be something that could evolve over time, continually improving on the last iteration so I don't think we should focus too much about the initial quality.

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.
