On the login screen there is no way to select the desktop environment to use if you have more than Xfce installed.  I tend to jump between LXDE and Xfce so I installed the LXDE meta-package - I just can't select it at login...

Good job on the release of the beta for LinuxLite 2.0 - It looks nice so far.

I'm quite new to LinuxLite (have a low spec laptop running Puppy elsewhere) but I have a couple of questions on the install.
Not sure if this is the best place to ask, but I can't see a specific beta forum?

1. When I select "Erase whole disk" and "Use LVM" during install, I get a crash saying I need to check virtual console 4 and then syslog for the reason that the disk partitioner was unable to create the disk layout. I can't see any details there. Fdisk shows me that /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda5 have been created. This is on vbox with an 8GB disk. Works fine if I do not select LVM (I was going to use LVM so I could resize the virtual disk and change partition sizes later).

2. I see reference to a 2GB USB disk requirement, but the installer asks for 5.3GB minimum. Is the requirement 2GB or 5.3GB? I suspect it might be 2GB for booting the install from and 5.3GB for a full install, or do you offer the ability to write back to the USB stick al-a Puppy? I'd like to know so I can purchase some USB drives for some diskless laptops that I want to use LinuxLite 2.0 on. Puppy is a little too quirky, and I like how LinuxLite looks more standard.

Congratulations again on what looks like a great release.

This is a distro for newbies to Linux, we don't anticipate them installing and configuring other DE's nor do we offer support for that. That would put us in a position of supporting and troubleshooting beyond what we have the man power for at the moment, we're better to spend what little free time we do have outside of RL on support for the software we provide ootb.  Cheers.

Check in /var/log for the error. It could be that it just won't work in a vb but may on hardware.

The 2GB USB is for the image, 5.3GB is for the installation. Cheers.

Fair enough as you will probably attract the users you seek and lose others.  Good luck to you...

Hello!

To change languages, it's under Menu > Settings > Language Support.

To remove Mumble, it can be done in Install/Remove Software (Synaptic Package Manager) or, in a terminal window [CTRL-ALT-T], type the following...

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove mumble
Sometimes, a logout/logon or reboot may be required for menu entries to disappear. If they're still around after THAT, the .desktop files that comprise the menus are located in two places:

/usr/share/applications
/home/<USERNAME>/.local/share/applications

To see files or folders beginning with '.', 'Show Hidden Files' must be checked (enabled) in the file manager. To delete anything outside your home directory, you have to logged in as root...

I have been looking at the LL 2.0 Beta and cannot seem to find the Lite Software manager. Is it still available to use/install?

No, we dropped it. It was really just the lubuntu software center rebranded. You can install it if you like through Synaptic (lubuntu software center ).

Oh no, that was probably my favorite addition to this distro! It allowed multiple adds to app basket to install a lot at once and not one at a time. Does the Lubuntu Software Center do the same thing with app basket for more installs at once?

Hello!

Yes, you can batch-install apps with the Lubuntu Software Center, also. I've used it in the past, but I like to see what happens as they're being installed, so I do most of my software installing through a terminal window or Install/Remove Software (Synaptic Package Manager).

Towards that end,

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-software-center "gits 'er done"...

Hello! Linux Lite 2.0 is a very nice OS, I like it. So far I have only one Problem with it. It is the screen tearing in VLC and also in Youtube videos. Although I have a very common Intel HD4000 Graphics card in my laptop. Does anybody know an easy solution for this Problem?

One minor issue to report, the zip format doesn't appear in the drop down list when you create an archive via thunar context menu (or via xarchiver directly). The manual suggests it should be available, here's the relevant section:
https://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/software.html#archive

Doing this fixes it:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install zip
I've only tested the 32bit version.

It's nice and fast so far, hibernate works, and I'm enjoying the updated evince and catfish.

ps. What was the rational for making Gnome Document Viewer the default app to open pdfs? Not a complaint, I'm just curious.
