Default xubuntu-users Digest, Vol 63, Issue 18

I have, since the 02-25-`1 daily builds, been testing Kubuntu, Lubuntu, and Xubuntu, with good results.**The build back then for Lubuntu, was a bust; I had to bring in the LXDE packages myself, but since then, it has**been fine.**Kubuntu had a few minor, but annoying defects, but it wouldn't let me download the dbg packages, which they mandated, in order to report the issues, so I just waited, tested a little later, and the issues went away.**Xubuntu, in contrast, has been perfect for me from the start; no issues to report!**I'd rate it best of the bunch!

I am hesitant on leaving 10.10 as it was very stable. I might try 12.04 once it is released.

You can save your 10.10 installation with clonezilla, try 12.04, and return later to 10.10 if needed.Wkr

Hi!

Ive recently installed xubuntu 11.10 on my laptop msi410.

The problem: it overheats! Its imposible to use it, even shutdown by itself a couple of times.

Someone out there with a similar problem? What can i do to to keep the laptop cool?

I dont want to use it like this, but ill have to try out other distros if i dont find a solution.

By the way, under windows the laptop gets hot but its not serious.


Cazador

Ps.* Sorry for my english, its not my first lenguaje. I hope you could understand me.

Probably a dirty and/or clogged fan! You need to
clean these things regularly - especially in laptops!

Hi list!

I've been testing Xubuntu 12.04 for 2 weeks on my Samsung N220 Plus
Netbook (upgraded to 2 gb RAM) now. I downloaded the daily builds a
few times and played around with several programs, tools and tweaks to
get the system to my personal "perfect" status. When the final release
comes out, I'll just work down my list and get productive.

One thing I am unsure atm is the Ramdisk usage. What I do right now is:

* * sudo leafpad /etc/fstab

then I enter the following lines at the end:

* #RAMDISK
* tmpfs /tmp*tmpfs defaults,noatime,mode=1777*0 0

this creates a dynamic Ramdisk for the /tmp folder, so my harddisk
gets less read/writes, the system overall speed increases and
temporary data gets deleted on every downtime, freeing up the disk
space. Also I have set my Firefox cache onto the Ramdisk, speeding
up
the load time of websites critically.

What I would like to know now is, what folders can I add safely to the
ramdisk to improve further (if at all)? I have read that the whole
/var folder should remain untouched, even /var/tmp. Is that true?

Greetings,

Joerg

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, testing time is here...

First off, let me apologize for the cross-posting. But please swallow your
rising anger, and read on, I have an explanation embedded in the message.

Release Candidates have been released, and they're in great need of testing.
Please help us with finding the rest of the bugs in hiding, go to
http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/ now!

You will see a list of releases that are being tracked currently. The latest and
the most important is the Precise
Pre-Release. But before you click on that
link, please do log in first on your left hand menu button. If you have a Ubuntu
Single Sign-on account, you will be prompted to log in with that (it includes
all wiki accounts, LP accounts etc.). If you don't, now is an excellent
opportunity to create one.

Once you've logged in, you can click on the link mentioned above. You will be
introduced with a long list of images in need of quality assurance. Most of
these have good assistance, but if you feel like it, please help the other
flavors/teams by testing their images as well.

I'm mostly interested in two projects, though, and asking for help on them. They
would be Xubuntu and Ubuntu Studio. Why? Because starting from oneiric release
cycle, Ubuntu Studio started using Xubuntu as the base for the release. So
helping Xubuntu also directly helps Ubuntu Studio. But choosing either one will
benefit both projects. It
all comes down to your individual preference, whether
you're more interested about an all-around desktop distribution, or need more
multimedia-related features.

So according to your machine, you would be choosing either i386 or amd64 arch.
(do ask if you're unsure which you should be using) If you're choosing Ubuntu
Studio, you're left with the live-dvd only, but for Xubuntu you can choose
whether you need more advanced features for the installer (like encryption for
more than just /home directory etc. which can be found in the alternate image)
or if you want to test the system first without making changes to it (this would
be the live-cd).

For Ubuntu Studio, you are faced with two test cases; Install (ubiquity) and
Live Session. The latter is the one you would choose when you want to see how
the distribution runs, prior to proceeding with the install, whereas the former
will commence with the install
immediately.

For Xubuntu, you have more choices. The alternate installer provides
auto-resize, entire disk and entire disk with encryption test cases (plus the
once-only manual partitioning case), and the desktop image add the wubi
installer case to the aforementioned bunch. The run-once test case means it's
considered reliable if it has been ran once, by anyone, during the whole Release
Candidate ISO tracking process. All the other test cases need to be re-run, if
there are updates to the images, which occasionally happens (and has happened
several times already, hence I'm only now giving the larger audience this
notification email).

When you execute a test case, please make sure to read the test case
specifications linked to on the image page (saying 'Link to the testcase'), and
also please provide bug information if you happen to stumble upon any (bug
filing in LaunchPad is explained in length at
[0]).* The hardware profile part
is optional, but highly appreciated, especially if there are bugs filed. It's
totally free-form, just feel free to fill in any info regarding your setup.

And that's it, you've then officially been an important part in the quality
assurance process for Ubuntu development! The projects and the whole community
thanks You for your contribution!


Oh and finally a few words for the people filing an application to Xubuntu
Testers team. I'm going to go through them during the next 24 hours. Please make
sure you've added yourself on the wiki page listed in the description of the
team's LP page. It'll help us review your application, thus quickening the
process. It also helps if you have a public email listed in your LP profile, but
that's not absolutely necessary.

Looking forward to seeing lots of results soon. Thanks in advance for all the
help You can give
us!

If you have some questions you don't feel like asking on the mailing lists, or
generally just want to talk about the contributing to the projects, feel free to
stop by at our IRC channels [1]. Most of the time there are helpful people
willing to resolve any issues you might have, but please bear in mind that even
though nicks are visible, it doesn't necessarily mean anyone's staring at the
channel all the time. Some of us have persistent connections for several
purposes, but have life outside of the network, as crazy as it might sound like.
