    edubuntu trusty notes - gnome (no effects)

    While trying to log on to gnome -flashback (no effects) lightdm login does not present the little icon with my user_name. I have to click 'Lightdm Manager' to bring up the icon.

    Also .. the screen gnome background screen that is presented in ubiquity and then chosen will flicker once real fast and then go to a default background not as originally depicted in ubiquity.

    Current default background for Edubuntu Gnome Flashback-no effects:

    Code:
    ventrical@ventrical-MS-7798:~$ lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu Trusty Tahr (development branch)
    Release:    14.04
    Codename:    trusty

    Re: edubuntu trusty will not log on to gnome (no effects) by default

    I'm curious what method you used to upgrade Edubuntu from Saucy to Trusty?

    I noticed a few days ago that the upgrade tests were up at the QA Tracker:

    http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/qatracker/m...nes/308/builds

    Wow, glad I looked

    Lots of early testing images there now!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Expect things to blow up a lot for a few weeks

    Yeah.. it's just wild in there. I didn't think they would start so early. Don't forget, XP EOL is slowly approaching so Ubuntu has to be agressive. Maybe thats why.

    I wanted to get the "Run Command Prompt" back by pressing Alt+F2 just as it was in Gnome 2. This can be quite useful if you should ever do something silly like remove both panels and need to launch the terminal or another application without being able to access the menu(s).
    That is now operable by default in Edubuntu Trusty gnome-flashback (no -effects).

    Re: edubuntu trusty notes - gnome (no effects)

    I have just installed Edubuntu saucy. Gnome Fallback is available as an installation option. And it gives Gnome Flashback and Gnome Flashback (no effects) as log in options along with Ubuntu. But Gnome Flashback was a mixture of Gnome panel and Unity. The Launcher was there as was a bottom panel. The top panel did not have any menus or indicators. Needed the terminal to shutdown.

    I have now updated it to trusty and the three options work as they should. Although I do not see much difference between Gnome Flashback and Gnome Flashback (no effects). I expect it is more noticeable with lower spec hardware. I also noticed that both flashback options seem to have the right side of the Unity top panel as well as the left side with Applications and Places.

    I wondered about the Light Display Manager option but I did not try it. I wonder if it is in preparation for having a choice of Light Display Manager and Mir Display Manager. I remember someone saying something about getting Mir as a log in option at some point in development.

    I really do not see how that would be possible because LightDM is more than a login manager and Mir will be also. Surely either of them would be running long before the login screen was needed. Unless it sets the option for the next boot.

    I will install Ubuntu Gnome (trusty) tomorrow and see what happens with Flashback there.

    Regards.
