Linux Lite Software Development / Re: Early Alpha Speed Test 1
« Last post by Jerry on February 21, 2020, 08:19:01 PM »

Here are some suggestions: -New icons, the ones with the strange black background are ugly. -This win7 wallpaper is very ugly lol (I know it can change). -I think we should have an app store similar to Linux Mint and etc. -We should also show animations in the windows (it seems that they are present in this 5.0 alpha, very happy for that). Simply the best edition of Linux.


Icons stay, sorry. Win7 wallpaper was ONLY for 4.8 We've discussed as a community, the app store thing in the past and decided it was best to stay with Synaptic.

Cheers :)

Is your alpha using Ubuntu 20.04 (which is alpha too)? Will you be releasing versions for testing?

I have a Ryzen 5 3500u/Vega 8 (and Ryzen 3 3200u/Vega 3) laptop. They seem sensitive to kernels above 5.3. I read that Ubuntu is using the 5.5 kernel for 20.04. I could do some testing on my machines. But, I'm not very knowledgeable about how to dig into why something isn't working.

I know LL has been targeted toward older hardware. It's ok if hardware *that* new isn't a priority.

Yes, 20.04 we only base off LTS. We release an RC, should be around May. Ryzen, remember, you can use one of our custom kernels if you need to. We target Windows users much more than we target old hardware.

Installing Linux Lite / Re: Sign-in Required

@tosim
Have you tried using dd to make the usb ?

Code: [Select]
sudo dd if=linux-lite-4.8-64bit.iso of=/dev/sdx bs=4M
where 'x' is the letter of your usb stick.

The only other thing I can think of is, how did you input username and then log in. I found through experience that you need to type in "linux" in the username box and then hit enter before clicking on the log in button, leaving the password box blank.

Thank you for the reply. I had read that(use Linux for log-in), prior to attempting that first boot, and did try that, along with several other standard ones, but that did not work. Anyhow, thanks again.

Very, very early testing of 5.0 on real hardware. Boot up is fast, shutdown is almost instant. Windows pop open very quickly, look at Libre Word open!
Fairly old HP lappy with 8gb ram, Core i7, very old first gen Vertex 60gb SSD. Can't wait to test this on modern hardware!


I was already a user of Win 10 and later I moved to 7, I always thought both were heavy, and I decided to test other systems (my notebook is not at all powerful) I started using Lubuntu, ugly interface. Then I used Linux Mint, I liked it, but I changed it, because it was kind of buggy. Right after I used Ubuntu, beautiful but heavy. So I researched and found Linux Lite, now I have no complaints, light, simple and very beautiful. Here are some suggestions: -New icons, the ones with the strange black background are ugly. -This win7 wallpaper is very ugly lol (I know it can change). -I think we should have an app store similar to Linux Mint and etc. -We should also show animations in the windows (it seems that they are present in this 5.0 alpha, very happy for that).

Other / vlc media player
« Last post by Marty on February 21, 2020, 12:58:52 PM »
vlc will not recognize the cd. the cd is mounted and the music files show up on the drive but when vlc opens and i click on the devices icon the files do not transfer to vlc media player. I can move the files to my music file but i have to input all album info. What am I doing wrong. I though vlc would get all the album info automatically.

I assume this is testing from a usb drive, login should be automatic but you could try:
username: linux
password: leave blank there is no password, just click on log in.

If the screen locks during Live mode, type linux into the user box and click on the Login button (no password required)
