(.....)The Google saga experienced this year has proved to be a valuable lesson (see below). The only PPA's are for Gimp, Wine and Systemback - they have not let us down to date.

Google Software - Once burned, twice shy. The Google PPA issues this year has left a sour taste in my mouth. No Google products will appear in Lite Software for the entirety of Series 3. You can still get Chrome etc from the internet. A huge thank you to those who helped people who's Updates were not working. I know this has been a p.i.t.a. and I would like to recognize this community for assisting people with the Google fix. We'll look at reintroducing Google software in Lite Software in Series 4. Let's see how things pan out over time.
Isn't this just Google bashing? That Google stopped with 32-bit support is their valid decision to make and execute. Not yours to judge Jerry. They didn't had to ask for your permission. That most users experienced problems during updating was easy to fix. That does not mean that Google is bad and evil, they purely made a decision to create their path onwards to the future. And beside that, 32-bit systems are dying out. The percentage of 32-bit systems are getting slimmer by the day. So, if you aks me, Google made a good choice and doesn't deserved to be bashed like this for nothing.

Just another question, which kernel version will be used? I hope the 4.4 LTS kernel??

One possible bug, can anyone else replicate this?

- Install Steam and Dropbox from Lite Software
- After installation, start both apps, network tray icon disappears

Must be done on real hardware as Steam doesn't start in VirtualBox. Thanks :)

Steam installed ok but with a warning that the package was out of date.
The tray icon did disappear for a few seconds but came back.
Hope this helps.

Dropbox installed ok but cannot re-open it.
No response from desktop icon

LL 3.0 beta 64 bit

Have just noticed that although Dropbox will still not open from the desktop it will open from the system tray icon.

BarryVG,

The following is taken from the release announcement, ie. the beginning of this thread:

Quote
UEFI - Will not be supported in Series 3. People already know my position on this, we've had our discussions here on UEFI. We can still bring people to Linux Lite, with a little BIOS guidance.

Jerry - I know its after the beta cutoff but came across a couple minor items...
I wound up replacing the HDD (with a SSD :) ) in the mini.. So 32-bit OS and 1200x600 resolution..

In GIMP the "maximize" arrows doen't change the window size... However minimize works.
At the resolution above - the window height extends the beyond, the bottom of the screen and cannot be adjusted in the corners...

Some application window sizes can be only be adjusted by the upper corners (think this was mentioned), some examples... Firefox and power manager only top - Image Viewer both top and lower right corner. 

Waking from hibernate (power manager) on occasion the mouse icon(pointer) will not restore, if moved items will highlight and can can be used - just cannot visually see the pointer -- this has only be a couple times... And on a limited install...

This setup uses 2 wifi adapters, 1 internal 1 usb, and this maybe driver but in 2.8 Network Manager would display and connect individually (I could connect/disconnect each adapter) in 3.0 its more combined under a single..

Another note..
guvcview - webcam seems to working on the newer kernel :)

Just posting as an fyi, nothing is show stopper ...

You might want to try Unetbootin or a DVD blank to burn it to. I have good luck with DVD RW's.

help! been using v 2.8 on Dell Inspiron for a while and all is good. Great to be free of windows....I want to install v 3.0 and have downloaded the 32 bit ISO file and burnt an image, but on install it takes ages to do anything then just hangs. Do I have to remove v 2.8 first? Thanks....
