Sylpheed, Configure, Other Wallpapers (Such as KDE's, Ubuntu's, Gnome's, and R4 's (Including the login screen?) and R5's too, other than the new R6 Wallpapers?) xfburn(?). What do you think about that (With Brasero replaced by Xfburn)?
Maybe this setting for the clock
%A, %B %d %Y %r or %A, %B %d %Y %R
Allow lxde-logout to show up in the menus (go to usr/share/applications) and maybe give it a good icon
Make the Menubar and Bookmarks Bar, or maybe even the Statusbar features addon appear by default in Midori.
And (Sadly) a gtk theme that will also be compatible with gtk3 apps(And there are just too few!)
Oh, yes, don't drop Jupiter.
You might also want to create a script (Blank File) in /usr/share/applications named, for example, pcmanfm--desktop-pref.desktop and copy and paste these in the script:
Name=LXDE Desktop Preferences
Sylpheed: First thing I'd remove, prefer a panel icon link to a desktop file with exec= to the following little shell script:
chromium-browser http://in... &
chromium-browser http://webmaila.ne... &
chromium-browser https://mail.zo... &
chromium-browser https://mail.go... &
This simultaneously opens all 4 emails.
Similarly, I have a panel link for just doing a Forums (all forums} search:
chromium-browser /home/doug/Programs/search.html &
You can see it at the bottom of http://douwil7.100webspace.net/linux/Tuning.html#22, and stript the html code from the source page to create search.html.
Never use wallpaper - prefer rotator with nice pictures. Xfburn is a very good burner, but so is brasero. Midori often sticks after 3 emails in the email script, so prefer Chromium which never fumbles. Shutdown in menu is good - I always put one with the 3-dimensional-appearance bright red shutdown icon. A menu help entry showing the code for setting time so people can easily set their own clock would be useful, for example, I use a short setting in order to keep panel open for more applications since I do not like desktop icons messing up my pictures. Just some ideas for having something "different" to offer users.
Oh! One other thing. Why do no, apparently, LXDE installs include lxmed? I know it requires Java, and Java is heavy, but any operating system worth anything should have Java, also. I'm not sure Open JDK is good enough to launch lxmed, though.
@Douglas re LXMed and the need for Java
Have you had a look at LXMenuEditor ?
Haven't checked it myself (yet), but agree a menu editor would be a good addition.
I do wonder idly what happens to the edited menu when there are updates from either wattOS or upstream eg if I move some "Preferences" item to "SystemTools". That question applies no matter how the menu is edited.
Here are some great gtk3 themes. One of them should be R6's default, like the Zukitwo Wise theme (or Zukitwo light/dark with a customised colour scheme). Note: in ppa:webupd8team/themes there are Linux Mint's themes, literally!
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/themes
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:satyajit-happy/themes
For the sake of fairness, here's one with openbox. The gtk theme stays the same. I was going to use an Openbox theme from box-look.org, but Onyx seems to be good enough. Title font: Sans and Freesans. This one can actually be R6's default, maybe with a new wallpaper alogside R4's and R5's.
"light-fast-now" Apparently, "fast" implies 64-bit: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=ubuntu_1204_3264&num=1
Hi Leenie. My last new computer has happened, some time ago. I think we have different views of old. A hundred dollars buys 2Gz dual-core CPU and 2GB Ram these days - that is old. The way I see the Linux world - a bundle of itsy distros and another bundle of fat ones. There is a void inbetween which is where I would put Watt. Big enough on which to build a true working computer but small enough to slim down to be run-able with ancient hardware. Smile, smile. Slogan: Get the job done with WattOS.
