    well, let's hope; otherwise it's really annoying!

    Yes, there is none (in Synaptic, at least).

    When close to achieving you quit! If you don't try you failed. Real Winners are not afraid of losing.

    I understand you, TheNessus, it is annoying. Forcing a person to use two things that do the same thing and eat twice as much memory.

    No ones forcing you to do anything.

    cool

    you have a link or links? others may find them annoying too and it gets higher up the queue

    it may get fixed by final release day, if not it should come with an update.

    the Gwibber is probably much higher priority cause of the memory leak

    This should really be in Lucid Testing & Discussion, IF you check out the threads in the sub-forum your questions will be answered. Moved.

    I don't think Gwibber has a mem leak bug, it's just a heavy appplication using other heavy applications such as DesktopCouch. Its mem usage remains constant (no leak, just uses a lot of memory)

    Here is a link to the bug report (marked INVALID, since it is a duplicate bug report; issue will be fixed next release)

    Re: Lucid Gnome woes

    Looks like Mark Shuttleworth posted a new blog at a right time.

    He addresses the current segmentation of the indicator applet and the notification area.

    From http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/347
    When we set up Project Ayatana to improve the usability of the whole desktop, we called it Ayatana because we were focused on the “sphere of consciousness”, one’s awareness of what’s going on outside of the current application. There are two key aspects to the work:

    1. Notifications are “awareness distilled” in the sense that you cannot interact with them at all. We designed them as ephemeral “click-transparent” messages, implemented in Notify-OSD. Their sole purpose is to notify you of transient events.
    2. Indicator Menus combine persistent awareness of a state with a set of options for modifying that state.

    In this blog I’ll outline the arc of our work on indicator menus to date, and the trajectory we expect it to follow. We’re about a year into the effort, all told, and I think it will take another 18 months before we can consider it baked. It should be done by 12.04 LTS. This is an iterative process, and things are in flux right now. I hope, when we are happy that we can commit to ABI stability, that Gnome and KDE will adopt the work too. For the moment, the rapid pace of evolution has meant that we’re depending on fantastic upstreams to keep up with us as things move.
    Goals of the Ayatana Indicators

    The indicators are designed to create a persistent awareness of state, or an awareness of a persistent state. They complement notifications: they are persistent, when notifications are ephemeral. You might miss a notification, but you should always be able to check your indicators. You can interact with indicators, using their menus, in contrast with the un-clickable notifications.

    Obviously if I remove one of the applets I lose part of the functionality. So I can't remove what I want without losing something else I need.
