Hi Jerry,

Still seeing the Google Chrome update error hitting people, reading complex solutions suggested (although the easy solution is linked on top of each Forum's page) and thoughts about such situations in general I would like to suggest the following:

  • Create a website of Highly Important Announcements. Possible locations:
  • Security & Bug Fixes here on the Forum, BUT ONLY IF it gets cleaned out and posting there gets restricted to yourself and the team.
  • a special page in the Help Manual
  • a website hosted on linuxliteos.com

  • Place a link to this website
  • on "Welcome to Linux Lite" on top of the "Start Here" category. I would even suggest a duplicate under "Support".
  • into the Help Manual if the page is not hosted within.
  • into the Menu under "System" and "Favorites".
This would give you the defined possibility/ process to communicate with the users - as long as they have internet access that is - even if the update process is screwed.
The icing on the cake would be to have a script running at a specified time to check for changes that have not been acknowledged by the user yet. If a change gets detected a pop up window would be presented to the user. Maybe it could be part of Shaggy's Lite-Updater... :)

Thanks for your consideration :)

Hey Jerry,

Now that LL 3.0 is out and about, just checking whether you had a chance to have a look at this suggestion?

All the best - and thanks once again for all your hard work! :)

Hi LL-user, thanks for the reminder :)

On Topic serves as a section for 'Highly Important Announcements'. I do understand the points you are making here, but there are two important considerations at play here. The first one being the former and two, we're conscious of enlarging the size of the main Forum beyond what it already is. The Help Manual is a 'How-To' resource only. linuxliteos.com - we have a News section at the bottom of each page, this is generally reserved for 'feel good' announcements only eg. releases.

I am always looking at ways to improve the information on the website and in OS and who knows, some of your suggestions may make it into future versions.
Never say never :)
