Thanks for adding the doc strings, it is appreciated. The variable renaming makes more sense too.

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.

It does it on a live iso, I wouldn't think there was any cache.

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.

So upstream has now implemented the packagechooser module which I think should fix this. @kc2bez would you be interested in both pulling down 3.2.12 and exploring this possibility? To be more clear there's two goals:

  1. provide a way to do a minimal install, i.e. what lubuntu-core is rather than lubuntu-desktop
  2. at least start providing some options to choose between different browsers, etc.

For this release I will change the patch so that NotShowIn=LXQt; is added to the stock .desktop that ships with Calamares leaving only our workaround visible in the menu and desktop. We can revisit it when there is an upstream change.

The patch doesn't apply. There are waaay too many changes since last release. around 60 something commits.
Should I ask for a new release upstream? Else will have to create a patch for each commit and apply and that will be too many patches.

kc2bez added a comment to T72: tweak minimum requirements.

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.

kc2bez added a comment to T22: Bring those swaps back.

This does look super easy to implement now, there are even options for the size of swap that a user wants to implement. In the partition.conf module we would need to change neverCreateSwap: true to neverCreateSwap: false and then add:

userSwapChoices:
    - none      # Create no swap, use no swap
    - reuse     # Re-use existing swap, but don't create any
    - small     # Up to 4GB
    - suspend # At least main memory size

I tested this in Vbox from a daily iso and it seems to work as advertised with the exception of reuse, I wasn't able to see that as an option but perhaps I was doing something wrong. Any insight on this @tsimonq2?
