Once we set a user to Autologin (at installation or later using the user configurator) we can’t turn it off

FS#708: Directory names should be not rewrited when different languages are set 2018-07-09T21:55:32Z 2018-07-09T19:00:36Z
  • Install the system in Language A
  • New desktop configuration, selecting language B
  • Re-login in destkop, directory names wants to be renamed (not!!)

This is due to some gnome xdg pre-desktop launcher that knows the language of the system but not the one that we have selected in the desktop

Notes:

  • Brainstorming: on which cases we should want to have the directories renamed? only from elive-topaz (statically english) maybe

FS#704: SubMenu is not showed all after clicking by mouse on desktop near right border 2018-07-05T15:19:16Z 2018-06-29T19:48:16Z

Hello
When I click by mouse on desktop near right border (of desktop), menu is showed all, but if I want to show submenu (for example “Applications” it is showed on the right side of menu and it is not showed all, only partially.

Could you fix it? For example show submenu on the left of mainmenu?

FS#698: WebSite ( Chat, Forums 2018 Look and feel) 2018-07-05T13:01:15Z 2018-06-25T14:50:48Z

Hello

Just trying to help

I know it take money to use modern tool like https://www.discourse.org/ for forums

But I would try to make the whole Elive experience smooth... Not just the product

Everytime I try to post something on the forum, it oftentime rejectmy message because of words I used.. I am patient but not everyone will be...

The Chat tool look like some 1990 IRC Chat channel for techies only / IRC Look... Why not use something more mdern like Telegram ? Keybase.io ? Something fast, modern and that we can use easily from our PC, WEB or mobile phone...

If your target customers are TECHNIES, my suggestions are not important

But if it’s everyone who love technologie and want try new things, Everything need to be smooth : from the Chat, Forums tool, communications with the community in general...

THERE ARE A LOT OF DISTROS OUT THERE : I don,t know if it would help, but I would make ELive easier to try and download and make Elive so good/beatufil that word of mouth will do it’s magic and you’ll get more " PATREONS” ready to invest 1$, 3$, 5$ per month to support the project...

FS#705: Multiple screens betatesting 2018-07-01T01:51:30Z 2018-07-01T01:17:58Z

The new multiple screens betatesting is ready to be used, this task will be to better track all that is needed to betatest:

How to use it: Everything should be automated, so just upgrade your system with the command “apug” and restart to a new desktop configuration (from elive menus), which is important too. It should detect that you have multiple screens and ask you to configure them, or use an existing configuration, etc in contrary case you still have the configurator available (only one now, which is an elive tool)

Things to betatest: This is the list:

  1. all the options and behaviours (what if select no, yes, save, not save, remove, etc), this is more or less already betatested by me
  2. try to disconnect the extra screen, reboot computer, your desktop should be equally functional (and I assume not asking/saying anything about)
  3. poweroff again the computer, connect again the extra screen, it should remember that configuration for your second screen and going back to these settings (without asking anything, i assume)
  4. there’s some games that changes your screen resolution (in order to play in fullscreen), if the game exits with an error your desktop is messed up (desktop running in a strange resolution), the normal behaviour is to return to the correct resolution when the game exits correctly, but i dont know if this happens or even if goes to the correct multiscreen mode. Also: a reboot should perfectly return to the normal behaviour
  5. maybe already said before, but switching between “using and not using” the external screen should be not a painful experience (and/or with reboots), it should be “work on the fly”
  6. ecomorph (special effects) should work correctly, except for the “exposé effect” which doesn’t seems to like it so much (confused numbers of desktops, etc, not sure if this one works better after the full implementation)
  7. detail: technically speaking, there’s two launching of the “load screen settings”, one happens before the desktop is loaded and the other when the desktop has started to load... in other words: if there’s a widget/question that asks for anything it should always happen when you already have access to the window controls (including window borders for example)
  8. since i found a strange behavior with the “automated fonts sizing calculation” feature, i include this betatest point: test if the font sizes are not reconfigured “smaller than normal”
  9. we have hotkeys to switch between virtual desktops, do we have a setup for between screens? i just tried to configure a new keyboard hotkey (ctrl + alt + shift + arrows) for switch to another screen 0/1 but doesn’t looks like to work on virtualbox... will need to do test in a real machine (and implement the hotkey in the default configuration)

Notes: if any of these betatests are not working as expected, please include the details of the “steps” about how to reproduce it, and the exact (first words) of the “conflicting” message found

FS#703: Newbie questions ( forum do not accept those questions) 2018-06-29T00:59:31Z 2018-06-28T21:21:24Z

Sorry Elive forum tool does not allow me to post that and does not specify which words are not accepted....

- UPDATES :
In Ubuntu distros I am used to have a software that notify us of updates for the OS, kernel or the Apps I installed. How is it handled is Debian / Elive ? Do we need to keep our apps updated ourselves ? What about Kernel / ELive update ?

- New Kernel version :
is it better for us to not install more recent kernel versions available for Debian manually if there is one, should we wait that Elive team give us a go ?

- Installation manually of more recent version of software :
Is it ok if we install manually more recent versions of apps like libreOffice ? VirtualBox and so son...

are you ok with us using Snap or Flathub to install apps ? any comments are welcome.. for new users to linux, flat and snap are cool... But I don’t know all the cons...

FS#702: Keybase not running on Elive 2018-06-29T00:44:05Z 2018-06-28T19:01:20Z

I’m sorry, I’m not really an expert. I run Keybase on 32-bit ubuntu just fine. I assume you just need to upgrade your libc package, but I’m not sure.”

The applicaton I was telling you, the icon does not show in the system tray, as Dropbox or the others apps...

FS#701: Audio and Video tunning needed 2.9.97 HP Compaq 8200 Elite Small Form Factor 2018-06-28T23:24:36Z 2018-06-28T14:02:15Z

Hello

1. Being able to change sound output without having to close apps for change to take effect ?
- I booted with 2.9.97.
- by default, sound was going out from my speaker connected to the built-In audio card on the pc.
No problems here. May be a visual indicator ( if easy) if we increase or decrease the volume would be nice. Not so important

BUT (PROBLEM 1) : Using AUDIO CONFIGURATOR If i change the sound output from PCH:HDA Intel PCH (Built in audio card) to “H540 Logitech USB HEadset 540” 1 need to close FIreFox ans chrome and open them again for the change of to take effect. I don’t know if it is a kernel thing but OS Itried, we can choose from where the sound comes out without having to close our apps.

Also : once I changed to Logitech Headset The Volume up key on the keyboard or on the headset do not work, it open the Sound Selector windows every time I press volume keys and if I close those windows, for each, I am getting an ERROR WINDOWS " Application Execution Error Windows”

PROBLEM 2: Even if I choose the logitech USB heasdet in the OS and in Vokoscreen, microphone does not work. Not recording my voice

2. VIDEO : How to I choose on which monitor the Application bar ( Panel ) at the bottom of the screen show up ? Be default is is showing up on the monitor on the LEFT but I want to have it on the other monitor ( one is HDMI the other VGA connecor in case it help)
