It's that time again. It's your feedback that steers this distro in a progressive direction. Please remember to only include ideas that have both wide appeal and a sense of familiarity to Windows users eg. no Terminal stuff, ease of use, 'granny proof'.

If you have previously made a suggestion and it has not made it into other versions of Linux Lite, please do not make the suggestion again, I look at all the posts made and carefully weigh up their pros/cons. Your suggestions are appreciated, but like Linus once said...

Quote from: Linus Torvalds - first Kernel release email

Iíd like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions
 are welcome, but I wonít promise Iíll implement them.


Really looking forward to all of your suggestions :)

So far:

- New login screen (no more lightdm-webkit)
- Possible inclusion of Gnome Software (a software center).
- Looking at adding Ubuntu Extras by default (seems to have codecs people are use to on Windows ootb)
- Folders accessible from Menu - https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/suggestions-and-feedback/suggestion-for-an-addition-to-the-menu/





Linux Lite 3.0 due June 1st, 2016.

Hello author. I like the idea of the computer addon for whisker, but I think u should keep the login screen the same because it feels more distinct and also it will be very easy for windows users to use when they log in.

Easy pepperflashplugin-nonfree and freshplayer integration on the already installed in firefox.

Here is my AntiX 15 readout Jerry to show what I am talking about (via command line of course)

Code: [Select]
harry@biker:~
$ apt search freshplayer
Sorting... Done
Full Text Search... Done
freshplayerplugin/jessie 0.3.3-0mx150+1 i386
  PPAPI-host NPAPI-plugin adapter

harry@biker:~
$ apt search pepperflash
Sorting... Done
Full Text Search... Done
pepperflashplugin-nonfree/stable 1.8.1 i386
  Pepper Flash Player - browser plugin

My readout above is from Debian Jessie repos. I figure Linux Lite can maybe be tweaked to have all this working out of the box for Windows users needing Netflix or whatever in their browsers. Be it Opera or Chromium which will see this as soon as they are installed by the new user.
The freshplayer is for Firefox running latest adobe flash 20 or what ever is around in google by the time you release 3.0.

I have looked at freshplayer in the past, and even I had issues with it let alone - https://github.com/i-rinat/freshplayerplugin/blob/master/doc/known-issues.md Chrome installer in Lite Software will have pepperflashplugin-nonfree as discussed in previous threads. We need reliable solid software thats not going to break. Ubuntu can be a little slow on flash updates, but it's usually within a day. Youtube is on html5 now too.

Hello, I don't know if this has been added since I only use LL 1.0.6 right now, but maybe if possible to add something like Win 7, create a system image to a another drive or disc's. Then if something goes wrong we can just load the image as if nothing happened ^|^

Firstly, thank you for this amazing distro. I am a big fan of your work without even using it. I am on a new computer so all of my other OSes are booting with UEFI; therefore i request UEFI support, i know there was a thread to test it. I am not an expert, but I would like to help if it is still available.

Edit: There was an LL 2.6 iso so i just gave it a try; installed it as legacy-bios and booted with Linux Mint UEFI live media to install necessary grub-efi* packages and converted it to UEFI! I will update this post as i see some possible improvements.

I really like the suggested log-in screen. Clean and modern.
How about some additions to Lite software?

1) http://www.freefilesync.org/
2) Audacity
3) Calibre

I notice you are using 1.0.6,
In 2.8 there is Systemback that gives very similar results, Restore Points / Live Image creation

Try a "Live Boot" of 2.8 and see if it works on your Hardware.

I vote for to add Cherrytree to LL Software Centre,
I think others would find it a great way to keep notes and much much more.

How about changing the 'priority' of LL from the default distro in a multiboot grub-loader?

Thanks Wirezfree I did not know that. I will most certainly be using this in the next version of Linux Lite. Looking forward to it.

I don't know what the program is but I have seen it on You Tube reviews. It is a program that shows the kernel you are using, optional kernels, risk, etc. This would be helpful for users like me who want to use and stay with the LTS kernel.

It may be of personal preference but I'd suggest Parole in lieu of or in addition to Clementine as a Music Player option within "lite software", it's light on resources and straight forward.

Also, I'd suggest the addition of this link: https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/  within the Linux Lite Control Center and within the Linux Lite Help Manual.
