Runtu XFCE is a Linux Lite analog.
Runtu Lite is the equivalent of Lite Core.
In my opinion. ;)

Maybe so, but the site being in Russian doesn't help to get that. Though now that I took a scond look at the screnshots on SF, I get why you say that



It kind of "looks" like Lite Core, except it doesn't use xfwm4 but openbox, pcmanfm instead of thunar, lxde panel for xfce4-panel.

Another category to consider adding in Lite software would be system rescue and repair and some small forensics tools like: system and boot rescue utilities, uefi utilities, nmap, wireshark, scalpel, etc.

How is this exactly related to Lite Core or even Linux Lite for that matter? Short answer: It is not!

I'll modify the Lite Software code to be the software-of-choice installer. Around 5 choices per category, 5 Web Browsers, 5 Media players etc. Creating a upgrade-to-full seems like a waste of code and time, if they want full LL, that solution has been provided. Lite Core would also have a separate website, because nearly half of our current visitors use an ad-blocker, I'm viewing this as a possible route to 'double' ad revenue which will allow me to go full time. Then watch this project explode with Translations etc.

I LIKE IT  :54:


If the added work out weighs the few minutes to install.... then it makes sense...  :bow

A thought....

"I installed Lite Core - How do I make it LL Full???" or "Have core now want full".....

Well,  people should know better; lite core = no full LL. So download full LL instead.


True, just thinking out loud... Thinking of those coming to Linux for the 1st time... Not as bad as having various XFCE, KDE, MATE etc. versions but I could see the question...


Or maybe an something in the repo?? to get/install like say ,,,
Code: [Select]
apt install LL_Full

But again, for it to be viable, it would need to be easily maintained...
or maybe the answer is... hey sorry, you installed the core please install the full for the full Linux Lite OS experience   :011:

Could "Lite Software" include those added packages/features? Or a "Lite Core Converter" to add the options??
Else, is the answer to install the full version....

I have a similar thought, maybe some kind of "profiles", but then I don't know how much extra-work would that imply, besides, what's the fun on using a "Lite Core" edition, if you take the "core" out of it? ;)
Back in 2017, I suggested a similar approach, though a bit "more extreme"  :011: https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/suggestions-and-feedback/linux-lite-3-8-suggestions-welcomed/msg37136/#msg37136

Hi @Jerry ,
I have run LL for a couple of years and my humble opinion is that every piece of software is well choseen and every user could change that.

I wonder whether you could give us more freedom and choices with Lite Core, sounds good.

Regards,

I know core is LL less the add-ons...
Could "Lite Software" include those added packages/features? Or a "Lite Core Converter" to add the options??
Else, is the answer to install the full version....

Just thinking, depending how difficult that could be....
Or maybe a tag "Core version for those familiar with Linux and prefer to customize their own"....


*For the Windows refugees who might not understand the differences??

I do like the idea of a Core :) Kudos @Jerry

Lite Core:  Yes please - optional addons Lite optimised and in "Lite Software" menu.  The more the merrier so the "uninitiated" ( such as myself) can mix and match as needed.  Lean and Mean starter.

I noticed in the terminal "7 Gib out of 20 used, 38% of disk space". That looks like a bit too much for a core edition, or is there more stuff in besides the OS? Stuff like music, documents ...


It's my standard VM config, I don't really pay attention to the specs, other than making sure I never run out of resources. Better to over-cater at a wedding than to under-cater.

Will live mode be available too?

Yes, nothing changes other than software that's missing from Menu compared to standard LL.

Good! :)

Lite Update has already been removed (see tray in above gif)
Ah, yes, now I see(don't see it)that. By the way, having a second look at that gif, I noticed in the terminal "7 Gib out of 20 used, 38% of disk space". That looks like a bit too much for a core edition, or is there more stuff in besides the OS? Stuff like music, documents ...

Whisker Menu adds a lot of ram and the whole idea of 'core' is to remove anything that is NOT required and simplify everything else to it's 'core'
Didn't think about that, you're right.
