Yeah forgot to put that.  The OS driver works amazingly well and the display is so crisp and bright.  Better than windoze looks on same laptop!!  Great work Valtam.

Great to hear :)

2. Is there a fix in 2.0 for the "Locale Change" issue...
    Changing the locale to "English UK" causes the main menu items names for "Install Updates" & "Help Manual" to change.?

Many Thanks
Dave

We can't test all locales, try a test run install in a virtualbox first to find out.

Hi Valtam,

Will try this weekend if I get a chance.

Dave

Hi Valtam,

Sorry for long delay... A distraction called "Work" gave me no time for anything recently.

I have done an install of LL 2.0 Beta.
The issue with changing the Locale(Language Support) to English UK and it affecting the the Menu items for Install Updates & Help does not occur.

To confirm I followed exactly the steps I used in 1.0.8
Menu > Settings > Language Support
then on:
Language Tab: Dragged "English UK" to top, apply system wide
Regional Formats: selected "English UK", apply system wide

restarted and checked Menu, Install Updates and Help are not re-named.

Thanks for LL 2.0

Dave

No problem...
If there are other items for LL 2.0 Beta to report,
should they go here, or under install in the Software forum.. noting it's for LL 2.0 Beta??
Currently have only 1 minor thing.

Hi Valtam,

Minor issue...
I have enabled the Desktop icons for File System, Home and Rubbish Bin.
I position them on the Desktop where I want them,
on re-starting they default back to top left of screen.

On 1.0.8 they remain in the in the position I place them.

Thanks... Dave

Position your icons where you want them and try ticking 'Save session for future logins' on the shutdown dialog.

Ongoing Live CD tests
Fujitsu Siemens Amilo V3405 and Si1520  Similarly spec 2 GB RAM + Intel Dual core 1600.
Have complicated all functioning keyboards. Not identical layouts.   Both currently running on Mint 13 - with no particular set up problems.  UK English
wifi  internet works etc no problems connecting.
Have not needed to test blue tooth or the other  keys so can't comment on whether all the options function

Live cd LL..2.0 - can not find a way to get keyboards to function properly under live CD   (  by mess = see below)- Hence unable to log onto wifi  etc.

Therefore took the plunge and installed LL2.0 over Mint - clean install on the Amilo Si1520.  Installation smooth although finding the English UK  keyboard option (and layout routine typing in various keys and answering yes/no questions during installation) was not intuitive IMHO.  Might put off a less determined newbie.

After installation keyboard output was still a mess  .  Hence went into menu>settings>keyboard>layout - unclicked  default and then keyboard model - Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo laptop option and then English(UK) layout closed and went to keyboard icon  on lower right of screen and still showed English US

Typing still gibberish. in that alt key function seems the be the default.?
Therefore rebooted.
Keyboard now seems to have overcome the locked alt on position but still showing/behaving as  English US

Any ideas please. Ta


Went inrio menu>settings>keyboard

If saving the session doesn't work (Valtam's suggestion), you could try this:

Hi Valtam,

That works, I also tried the method from "nlube" which also works.
I actually have stuck with the nlube method, no offence Valtam ,
It seems more logical to do it with the desktop config file, given it's the desktop config

Thanks... Dave

Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro laptop Si1520 + V3405
Summary Amilo pro Si1520 & V3405  Similar spec but different multi function keyboards to keep space/size down.
Live CD  LL 2.0 32bit Default keyboard layout English US.
On both of the keyboards numbers letters and symbols are intermixed making testing of wifi  ( password login) nigh impossible without detailed  testing of what key does what  via libre write.
Doing the menu-settings> keyboard >layout> Unclick defaults and set  model ( Fujitsu siemens amilo)>Layout (English UK).  Does not solve problems
Menu>settings>Language Support ( English UK, English  makes no difference as package can't connect to the internet

Is there a way that this can be got round simply- as Live CD are the first “proving Ground” for a first  tentative look at LL.

For the the Full install on the Amilo Si1520, following the above procedures did improve things but left with English US keyboard and its key differences.. 
HOWEVER if then menu>settings>keyboard input methods >advanced and tick  Keyboard Layout to ”use system keyboard layout “  and then restart. Keyboard appears to adopt UK English layout although icon  ( bottom RHS screen) still states English US.

Have not tried this full install on the Amilo Pro 3405 as need it for backup and its keyboard layout is slightly different from the Si1520
