EDIT: I will be patching shotwell to resolve the database issue. Problem is it is looking for a file that does not exist. After patch there will be no need to purge/reinstall anything with shotwell.
First off thank you very much for the review and feedback. I will address your issues accordingly.
1. In my opinion and experience shotwell is a mess. I have attempted to purge it from the install all together. Maybe they have fixed the scope by now.
To test simple apt-get it:
and that error should go away.
sudo apt-get install unity-scope-shotwell
2. Thank you for the heads up on the wallpaper duplication...issue resolved.
3. As far as package selection we are already on a thin line with trademark usage so i will not be removing any default applications or anything that comes standard with vanilla ubuntu.
I will take a look into audacity and see what its depends are and decide on a installation or not. More than likely it will be included in the post-installs script as an option to along with enabling medibuntu repos.
Again i thank you for the participation and all reviews and feedback is taken under serious consideration. Many new avenues are opened up with a post-install script which is why i sought to add it. Stay tuned!
Final release will come with these issues fixed.
