Searched forum but could not find answers to my questions. Sorry if I missed them.

1. Is the Lite Software Center still available or do you just use Synaptic to get the Ubuntu Software Center and/or Lubuntu Software Center?

2. Is there an update available notifier now or do you still just check yourself periodically?



1. The Lite Software Center was dropped due to over commitment and under resourced (manpower)
2. The update notifier is still in development, that particular dev is very busy at the moment. So updates are still done via Menu, Install Updates but you can set up automatic updating quite easily if you want - sudo apt-get install unattended-upgrades && sudo dpkg-reconfigure unattended-upgrades

Cheers.

1. No problem to install and use the Ubuntu or Lubuntu Software Center via Synaptic.

2. Does " sudo apt-get install unattended-upgrades && sudo dpkg-reconfigure unattended-upgrades " give a gui notifier or just do updates in background or something else?

1. I haven't tried, someone else may know.
2. Updates in the background.

Thanks, Valtam. I have installed both software centers via Synaptic before so should still work on 2.0.

Don't do dist-upgrade on LL. This has been discussed many times, even if it has worked for you, we warn against it.

Noted. I will refrain from showing that again. I will edit my post also.

First off..Let me say Kudos to all the dedicated people who made this distro come alive...they deserve it. As a long time Linux user (and distro hopper) I really think Linux Lite is the way a Linux distro should be...Easy and efficient...
This being said, my first impressions of ver.2.0 are somewhat mixed. Mind you, not enough to stray (I still keep a Slackopup around for fun in root).
My first peeve came with the installer. It couldn't find my location (which is Montreal, QC, Canada).
And when I tried to enter it manually, it started looping. I know too well this is a Ubuntu bug. Having experienced it before. Still, If you use someone else's installer...it should be checked..even reworked.
Second came the sound. Truthfully, this has been an ongoing problem (Mint reported something similar) where it goes to mute by default. Now it seems unresponsive and only comes on after clicking back and forth. Again this could be U's fault. Still, it's a software wedgie...Ouch..!
Last but not least is the loss of my beloved Synapse. I know this is not of the teams doing, but if there ever was a tool to trump MS and sway in new users in search of ease of use and productivity...Synapse would rank way up there.
Concluding, I would like to point out that these are in no way deal breakers. However, I strongly believe that they can turn away some prospective users, especially the sound glitch (nobody cares about finding Montreal on a map except Montrealers..(lol).
Respectfully yours,
Michel

Hello!

Yes, it would appear that Ubiquity, the Ubuntu installer, is also used by almost every Ubuntu-based distro, including Linux Lite. As for the location feature, it is mainly used for time zone purposes, so any other city that DOES appear in the same time zone should suffice.

The keyboard layout is on another screen in Ubiquity. It should support a French one, although one guy on here has said that setting it up in French gave him issues...

Thank you for the feedback michel, it is certainly appreciated. If we had a bigger team and more spare time then we would be able to cover all the things you mentioned. For what we have at the moment, we have to dedicate and spare time to smaller more manageable projects like the Lite collection of software we offer. If you know any programmers, send them our way :)
