Congrats to everyone involved! LL3 is another fine release.

One issue that I did run into was during installation. I left my laptop for a short time and when I came back the screen had gone black (screensaver?). After touching a key I was presented with the login screen. I didn't know the default live system credentials so I waited a bit until I was sure the installation was complete. Is there any way to disable to screensaver logout during installation?

32bit or 64bit?

found something strange. I created a new file, pasted the text into it and saved it. But then i saw that the icon had changed into an envelope. When i looked at the properties it says its a mailbox file. When i add .txt behind the name the icon changes to a normal txt file icon

What text did you paste into the file?

Folks please remember when you are reporting issues to state whether its on 32bit or 64bit. I have 2 'Linux Lites'  to maintain and this would save me a lot of time. Some of you have already changed your Forum profile, so that does help. Thank you :)

I've seen your blank screen issue a couple of times, what I do now is when booted into the live media before starting the install process I go into the Power Manager settings, Security tab & change Automatically lock the session to Never.
It holds that setting until a shutdown/reboot etc. & the screen stays on if left unattended for a while.


Thanks, I'll apply that setting in LL 3.2 :)

32-bit for me, I've also pinched some drive space from my 2.8 install & installed 3.0 to the hard drive instead of running from a USB install.

Tried that red theme (mod of SCOUT039) and a few others Jerry, all the same with no minimise.
It appears what Mike mentioned previously is correct it's been changed in XFCE.
And his solution of clicking the file icon in the notification area effectively does the same job, it allows for showing/hiding of the progress box without being tied to the window's state.

Something else I noticed is when 2 or more windows & the progress box are up, clicking between the windows on the panel buttons changes the focus window and the progress box's colours change to 'background' but it stays in front & doesn't go behind the focused window like I guess it probably should.
The setting 'Always on Top' is useable on the progress box's panel button but has no effect either way.

What text did you paste into the file?


Just some plain text. Things that can be removed from a smartphones rom.
I added the file to my post..maybe its something in the text that creates the problem.


Below the text that is in the file.

Been trying out somethings. As soon as i start the text with From / the icon will change into an envelope after saving the file. No idea why that is.

I'm guessing, because the file start with the word 'From' the system assumes its an email mimetype and assigns it an envelope icon. I don't see this as an issue that needs fixing, albeit interesting :) Take out 'From' in the first line and its fine.

I did, and as soon as you save it the icon changes. Good to know not to start with From / in a text file. But you can type from / and notting happens.

Think I might have found a minor bug with the Desktop's right click > Application menu entry.
I have an application menu on the Panel, if I go into it's properties & edit anything in that menu, move something up or down etc., close the properties, then on the Desktop right click > Applications, instead of the menu appearing just a small rectangle appears.
Fix it by going Right-click > Desktop Settings > Menus then uncheck & recheck the 'Include applications menu on desktop right click' button, once that's done it works as it should.

Using Transmission I found it impossible to get it's port check to pass & show open until I changed the IPV4 settings in the Network Connections.
Edited the connection settings and changed it from Automatic (DHCP) to Manual, entered the relevant info, saved and all is well.
It's a wired Ethernet connection on a TP-LINK TD-8840T ADSL2+ Modem Router.

Migrating settings/profiles manually from 2.8 works well by simply replacing the files in the relevant folders on 3.0 with the ones from 2.8.
Firefox, Thunderbird, VLC & Transmission all ok with the only issue found being the Transmission connection glitch and that was unrelated as I tried a clean/fresh Transmission install before editing the network connection.

Desktop icons, I never tried this on the LL 3.0 beta, but noticed on LL 3.0 Final I'm seeing the icons jump left issue again.
This time I don't believe it's a bug, it appears to be just how XFCE works.
It's only with removable volume icons for external devices, and only when they're powered down when shutting down the system completely or restarting.
Internal removable volume icons and any other icons on the Desktop stay where they're put on a shutdown/restart.
On a logout/login they stay where they're supposed to, mounted or unmounted, powered on or powered off.
Shutdown or restart if they're powered off before shutting down they go back to the top left when they're mounted again next time LL 3.0 starts.
If they're mounted or unmounted but still powered on when shutting down they retain their positions ok.
sudo chattr +i ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/icons* keeps them in place after a shutdown regardless of mounted/unmounted, powered on/powered off status.

Just thinking out loud here below so might be incorrect info....
I was hoping I wouldn't have to keep doing that chattr command but I guess there's probably not much that can be done about it for now.
XFCE is probably doing correctly exactly what it's supposed to when shutting down & saving the Desktop state.
As the powered down external drive's icons aren't showing at that time they're not getting saved in the config file.
If they're still mounted or powered on the icons are still visible and they do get saved, which I guess would be why I see them holding their positions at those times.
I guess it must do things differently with regards to saving Desktop state on a logout vs a shutdown.
Or maybe it's the greeter & not XFCE at all....makes one's head hurt all this stuff  :-\    ;D

Hey Jerry, I don't see Linux Lite Control Center. Is there a way to install it from a repo?
Thanks!
Len

Apparently, you need to install Lite Upgrade Series 2

Lite Control Center is not in Series 3 at this stage. If anyone else asks about it, please refer them to this post. If anything changes, I will inform the community.

When will it be back?

I found a problem in the Linux Lite 32-Bit. Well, it's a very minor Problem but better know as it may confuse unexperienced users.



It does not Say Linux Lite but says just Linux.
