wxl closed T173: Let's find out how good we can make Lubuntu. All Ideas Welcome! as Invalid.

One other thing: having a general task to discuss a bunch of wishlist tasks is bound to be a rather long, lengthy, and confusing conversation because of too many subjects being dealt with at one time. Just like it's a bad idea to send in a bug report for a bunch of different bugs, it's bad to have a task for a bunch of different tasks. That said, I'm going to close this. If you have a specific item, make a new task for that.

wxl added a comment to T173: Let's find out how good we can make Lubuntu. All Ideas Welcome!.

To be fair, those rules are covered by the Ubuntu Code of Conduct, which governs all of our actions within Lubuntu. It also gets to the point that as Lubuntu we are Ubuntu and as such we will not be doing anything which deviates from the base of Ubuntu.¹ That said, we will not be even considering the idea of a rolling distro until you can convince Ubuntu of it. I should add it's been brought up more than once and shot down vehemently, so I think your likelihood of success there is extremely small.

Well, this sucks. Previous to Discover, Kubuntu was using update-notifier-kde with Muon, but that hasn't been updated in a long, long time. Now they don't use any of the update-notifier codebase and all the notifications are hidden within the stupid plasmoid widget.

Well we don't really have an official Facebook. We have had it, but none of us really want to maintain it, so we don't consider it an official resource. I don't even have a Facebook account.

wxl added a comment to T154: Fix shortcuts related to Super key.

@Steedalion unfortunately there are options that lxqt-globalkeys provides that Openbox simply cannot accomplish. Plus, it theoretically can be used as the place to look for most shortcuts. Application specific shortcuts (such as window manager ones) would be in those applications. Not to mention the fact that it's easy to graphically edit shortcuts in lxqt-globalkeys but it is simply not possible in Openbox. Openbox requires manually editing an XML file, knowing all of its particular quirks (such as the name of the actions and the ways to depict certain keys) and manually forcing Openbox to reconfigure. That's a lot to ask if what we're trying to produce is something usable and intuitive. I'd like to use it less and less because of that. And then there's the fact that should someone (myself included) choose to use a different window manager, non-window manager shortcuts are not removed.

Absolutely weird finding: it seems that Control + F10 and Control + F11 want to run xbacklight for some reason but they're not even defined and xbacklight isn't installed. Interestingly no such problems with the ones that control the brightness. Why????

  1. We wanted to use the Windows/Super key for the menu because it mimics Windows and just makes sense. We could do something different, but there was a general feeling that this just made sense. That said, do you have a non-Windows/Super key suggestion for the runner? I think Alt + R would be nice, personally.
    1. The idea is good but the suggested hotkeys won't work if we keep the Windows/Super key for the menu as I'm suggesting above since this requires Openbox commands. If you make a suggestion that does not use the Windows/Super key, I'll be happy to implement it.

There's no consistency among captive portals, so automatic sign ins won't really be a thing. Even the methodology used (HTTP redirect, DNS, etc.) varies.

wxl added a comment to T154: Fix shortcuts related to Super key.

A cop out? Even KWin doesn't really handle tiling. There's a script out there to make it work but reading some discussion on it, it's not foolproof. The Lubuntu "solution" wasn't really ideal, either (and was not an Openbox one, but one we developed) and is probably best described a window arrangement hack that vaguely resembled tiling. We should support the things we know we can support and that work well. That's not one of them.

wxl added a comment to T158: Define a Mission for Lubuntu.

Before, I think we were willing to sacrifice too much to keep the very idea of lightweight going on (whether or not it actually was lightweight) and I think we focused far too much on saving disk space, especially on the initial image which I think is an absolute waste of time. It's more important to make sure that we can edit network connections or deal with touchpad settings graphically than it is to make sure we take up the smallest amount of space. This is analogous to the business that, in an attempt to maximize profits, alienates customers through excess fees. That certainly doesn't sound good and it wasn't good for most of our users.

wxl added a comment to T159: strip environment in lxqt-sudo.

lxqt-sudo (and symlinks lxsu, lxsudo) is a graphical QT frontend for plain sudo(8) or

su(1) (for requesting optional password in GUI fashion).
When invoked it simply spawns child  sudo  or  su  process  with  requested  command  (and
optional arguments).
