No, it's information. You click on it and it tells you what to do.

Jerry:
For those wanting to test this, I have an early build available. To test this, do the following:

Open a terminal and do:


--- Code: ---leafpad ~/.config/autostart/lite_welcome.desktop
--- End code ---

paste the following into the file and then save and close it.


--- Code: ---[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Type=Application
Name=Linux Lite Welcome
Comment=Linux Lite Welcome Screen
Exec=lite-welcome
Categories=X-XFCE;GTK;Settings;HardwareSettings
OnlyShowIn=XFCE;
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
Hidden=false
Icon=menu-icon


--- End code ---

Then do:


--- Code: ---sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lite-welcome
--- End code ---

Now log out and login in again, you should see the Welcome Screen. In a future Linux Lite build of LL, this will only show after a fresh install.

Look forward to your feedback :)

Just followed your instructions, Valtam, and it works. Very nice. I'd much prefer a Welcome Screen similar to (or forked from) the Linux Mint welcome screen, but this is great nonetheless.

On a side-note, I saved the code you posted as lite_welcome.desktop. Obviously, I didn't have any negative effect the first time the Welcome Screen ran, but will this have any negative side-effects later on?

Thanks for testing so soon. I can't see this having any negative side-effects. Cheers.

Good work adds a nice professional shine to the distro. 8)
