Software - Support > Installing Linux Lite

A couple of problems encountered...

<< < (2/6) > >>

Peter B:
Update...I successfully managed a clean re-install and re-booted.
Theonly thing I then changed was the language to English UK in the Language Support screen, made the Regional format English UK, applied both changes systemwide and then re-booted.

As before, the Menu layout had changed somewhat and again when I click the "help" button, I get the Screensaver screen and when I click the "about Xfce" button, I am taken back to the Login screen.
I didn't make any other adjustments, not sure what to do now.

Peter B:
If it helps, this is the Log File straight after that one and only system change.
I'm sure it's something to do with my selection of "English UK" - when I was testing, I never altered this and didn't have any problems.

Is this the same thing, please?

Yes -- I was just going by memory, didn't remember exact wording of things.

Doesn't look like problem caused by anything you did.  Must be something misconfigured when selecting "English UK" by installer for some reason (bug perhaps).

Unless someone else knows the answer and posts back, I'll try installing LL 1.0.8 to VirtualBox and see if can repeat your problem and get lucky trying to figure out how to fix it.  (Long-shot, but maybe I'll get lucky.)  Might be a few hours -- can't get to that right now.

P.s.  Your log file didn't come through on post, but don't worry about posting it.  Problem was immediate with just your language selection -- so that must be the reason.

Peter B:
I was sure I attached the log file, but sorry it didn't work...I'm in Windows at present, so I can't re-attach it :-)
But yes, that was the only change I made, so I was fairly sure it wasn't me who'd messed up the installation.
Anyway, thank you for looking at it - I think I'll just leave the installation as it is for the time being and not make any other changes in case I might lose them all if I have to re-install again.

Finally got around to installing LL 1.0.8 into VirtualBox -- one version US English, another UK English.

Then I realized that ... stupid me ... I'm not sure which "buttons" you are referring to here:

The "help" button I assume is the 2nd from the top when you click the main Menu button -- right?

For the life of me, I can't figure out where the "about xfce" button you're talking about is.  Can you walk me through exactly where you find that?  (I'm sure I'll want to bop myself in the head when you point it out.)
