@Jerry Thanks for looking into this. The OpenZone cursor theme is quite nice and not too flashy (in my opinion). https://github.com/ducakar/openzone-cursors

Scripting and Bash / Ten Things I Wish Iíd Known About bash

Good blog post by Ian Miell that I stumbled upon.

https://zwischenzugs.com/2018/01/06/ten-things-i-wish-id-known-about-bash/

Here's one of his tips:

Have you ever done something like this?
$ grep somestring file1 > /tmp/a
$ grep somestring file2 > /tmp/b
$ diff /tmp/a /tmp/b
That works, but instead you can write:
diff <(grep somestring file1) <(grep somestring file2)
Isnít that neater?

I've been diggin' Perturbator's new sounds. If you like synthwave/retrowave then this might be up your alley. Fast forward to 1:20 if you're looking for the action.

Hi Jerry, for some reason the mouse theme is not persistent for me. I have it set black but it returns to white after a reboot.

I haven't found a way to do that yet.

You may want to fork the Ubuntu Mate Plymouth theme. One nice thing about it is that it creates a gradient background in the code instead of an image. All you'd have to do is replace the images with LL versions and change the color variables. From what I can tell you use #FFE97F (rgb 255, 233, 127) at the top and #7F6A00 (rgb 127, 106, 0) at the bottom of the background. As I understand it you need to divide each rgb value by 256 to get the correct decimal value in the code like this:

Code: [Select]
Window.SetBackgroundTopColor (0.9960, 0.9101, 0.4960);
Window.SetBackgroundBottomColor (0.4960, 0.4140, 0.0);

Nice work on LL, Jerry! Any chance you could add a password field to the LVM/LUKS login? Currently it's just the GRUB background image and there's no indication that a password should be entered. Luckily I figured it out. :-)

Installing Linux Lite / Re: Linux Lite 3.0 on a Netbook
« on: June 12, 2016, 10:55:11 PM »
I have an Acer chromebook so I can relate. As JmaCWQ mentioned, it's probably best to disable processes that you don't use much. For me personally, I disable the Network (nm-applet) and bluetooth (blueman-applet) applets. Those two alone use almost 100MB of ram. Even though the network indicator isn't showing, you'll still be connected to your router. You can verify that with a quick ping in terminal. I've even contemplated getting rid of lightdm too.

If it helps (for future users) I believe the username is Linux... password is blank.. I too came across this - its also listed in upper left most corner of the login screen (pc name  :P )..

I tried that but I think I used a lowercase L since most distros don't capitalize the usernames. I could have figured it out if I dropped to tty but this seemed like it might be an issue for new users to Linux in general.

But in LL 3.0 it's missing & the right click option to minimise from the panel button is greyed out.

This may have been a change in Xfce 4.12 which LL3 is now using. I believe you can hide the window by clicking on the folder icon in the notification area. Not sure why they hid the minimize button in the transfer dialog though...seems odd.

Congrats to everyone involved! LL3 is another fine release.

One issue that I did run into was during installation. I left my laptop for a short time and when I came back the screen had gone black (screensaver?). After touching a key I was presented with the login screen. I didn't know the default live system credentials so I waited a bit until I was sure the installation was complete. Is there any way to disable to screensaver logout during installation?

Installing Linux Lite / Re: How do I change the password on LL 3.0?
« on: June 01, 2016, 02:39:57 PM »
Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

How do I change my password in LL 3.0?  I tried Menu>Settings>User Interface (something like that).  The "Change Password" button doesn't do anything.

I can confirm this behavior. I took a quick peek at the source code for liteusermanager and wonder if it's something to do with pexpect. I guess we'll have to wait for Jerry or John to weigh in.

@m654321: For now one could argue that Linux is relatively more secure than Windows when running Flash. However, it's probably best to avoid using it when possible as it's only a matter of time until vulnerabilities are discovered on *nix machines.

@torreydale: I recommend checking out speedof.me - it uses HTML5.

On Topic / Re: SourceForge thinks Linux Lite 3.0 Beta is malware

Another way to go about it is to just use torrents. Ibiblio has a service called terasaur to host the iso files.
