Hmm, it seems weird that the keyboard switcher doesn't work on LTSP
though I haven't tested it myself. I'll poke someone next week to
check on a test LTSP setup and see where the problem is exactly
(probably a bug in the indicator).

As a workaround for now, you could create some launcher for your
users, one starting: setxkbmap -layout fr
and the other: setxkbmap -layout ara -variant azerty

(that's assuming you want the azerty keyboard for arabic input)

Well, we hold a little workshop with a group of teachers last Friday.it was really important to get more idea about their needs; and to present Edubuntu project (also free software).


Since we are going to prepare some script to simplify configuration for them, we thing come back into 10.04 for this year and 12.04 next year.
two more questions:1) does Edubuntu 10.04 follow Ubuntu 10.04 ? I mean, know we have the 10.04.3 (update 3), did Edubuntu get the same think or not ?

2) we want to participate with tests and help to get a great 12.04 dist I tried to add bug entry on launchpad but did'nt succed. how to do that ? or what is the best think to do when some one found a problem like we did.

That's great to hear, please let us know if there's anything you'd
like to get added or changed in Edubuntu.

For 12.04 we'll be focusing mostly on stability and quality, limiting
changes to a bare minimum so we can make sure it's going to be rock
solid for the next 3 or 5 years (still discussing how long we want to
support it).

Edubuntu 10.04 wasn't an LTS so we didn't get what we call point
releases. However as Edubuntu uses the same repository as Ubuntu, you
can install Edubuntu 10.04, then upgrade it from the Internet and
you'll have it run the same packages as Ubuntu 10.04.3.

The main difference with Edubuntu 10.04 not being an LTS release is
for security updates of educational packages. Anything that's also
part of Ubuntu will have security updates, everything that's Edubuntu
specific won't. Though in the whole history of Edubuntu we only have
to push one security update for our own packages and I did it for
10.04 anyway.

Oh, that's weird that Launchpad didn't work for you.
We'd definitely love to have more testers for 12.04. We just got our
first daily build a few days ago and will have our first alpha this
Thursday.

To report bugs with the proper metadata, you should use the command
ubuntu-bug like this (for a ltsp bug): ubuntu-bug ltsp

As our mailing lists are fairly low traffic, if you find a bug and
don't get a reply on Launchpad, you may also mention it here so we can
make sure it gets properly prioritized.
