Lubuntu One Stop Group




What is LOSG?
Lubuntu One Stop Group, inspired by Lubuntu One Stop Thread, is a Group that believes in One Stop Solutions. When someone starts something, he/she must take the full ownership and carry on to the end and make sure he/she will fix that issue no matter what.


Who are we?
We are a group of Ubuntu Forum Members.


How to join?
Any user who is using Lubuntu and helping others on Ubuntu Forum is a member of this group. You don't need to do anything except being a Lubuntu User, that's all. However, you need to sign up with your name by posting on this thread.


Why LOSG?
Action Speak Louder Than Words. Having that said, only time will tell why we are here. However, if you can't wait then we are here to be more organized on the first place and help each other on the second place and learning from each other on the third place.


What is the structure of this group?
There is nothing called Master or Mentor here. There is nothing called beginner or newbie here. There is nothing called smart and stupid here. There is nothing called silly or whatever. Everyone is learning and everyone is helping and everyone is sharing one simple fact that: He/She is Using and Loving Lubuntu, period.


What is our Motto?


One for Lubuntu and Lubuntu is for all.
There is NOTHING called impossible. Everything with Linux is possible.
There is nothing called "I can't". "I can't" does not exist in this group. However, "I shall try and do my best" does actually exist.
Motivation is alive and doing great.

A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do

I once fixed a door that wasn't even broken yet



How to tell others that You Are a Member of this group?
Change your location to "Lubuntu One Stop Group".

http://i39.tinypic.com/10sgmk6.jpg


How to communicate with each other?
The forum is a great source of learning and supporting but not for communicating so for now, a facebook group has been created:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/236872593034157/

If you don't have a facebook account, you can create one with your Ubuntu Forum Username and sign up. If you doesn't like facebook and refuse to use it, please come up with a better suggestion.
Chatting like IRC is not recommended as everything must remain documented for future reference.


What are you talking about? I didn't understand?
This post will be updated shortly, this is just an introduction. So don't worry about that.


Where to help?
Ubuntu Forum.


Who to help?
Any user of Lubuntu who is posting on this forum asking for help regardless what the issue is.


How to help?
Being a member of this group means you must help that user and make sure he/she got his/her problem fixed before leaving him. Don't leave him/her alone unless his/her thread marked SOLVED.
Even if that will take one or two weeks, that doesn't matter.


Are you kidding me? I do have a life
Then probably this is the wrong group you are looking at.


So, I helped X and Y, what else?
By helping people our way, LOSG way, you are not only helping, you are actually learning and learning a lot. By time, you'll have a great experience.


Okay, so what are the area of help or support?
Ubuntu Forum will be the place. Anything you'll post here is a support. Answering Questions, Writing Guides, Troubleshooting, Testing, etc. Anything does count. After all, you are helping and learning.


Enough talk, let's ROCK!
Wrong, try again. One thing you must first learn here is to be patient.


Note: This post will be updated shortly with more info if needed.

Wow what a great idea.

I only just started using Lubuntu and I must say it is the first edition of Linux that I am enjoying the experience.
Unfortunately I do not frequent the forums enough to be part of a group, and my knowledge of Linux let alone Ubuntu & Lubuntu is extremely limited.

But its great to see all this keen support for this simplified and (IMHO) improved edition of Ubuntu.

Cheers

Guess what? that makes you the right person for this group :)
Who told you we are seeking ONLY Linux Gurus here? that's not true. If you go through the first post again, you'll understand that this group is based on sharing, helping and learning. You'll learn a lot and then you can turn to help others and who knows what else?

Anyway, it's your call :)

By the way, have a look at this thread since you are new to Lubuntu ;)

Count me in. I believe that whatever small amount of knowledge that I do possess should be passed on to whoever I can assist. Perhaps a special Sub-forum in LXDE forum might be an alternate place. You are already a mod there.

I second that. Well said.


Perhaps a special Sub-forum in LXDE forum might be an alternate place. You are already a mod there.

Three good reasons for NOT doing that:
1- Ubuntu Forum has much more traffic - even though I'm doing my best to attract users to LXDE Forum ;)
2- If we, Lubuntu Team will do that then Mint Users, Fedora Users, etc will ask for that too and as far as I can tell, LXDE Team is not ready for that.
3- I do have access to moderate but I don't have access to add sub-forums. Only "admin" can do that and it's an account that I guess people who are in charge of LXDE Forum (before me) are having access to.

Don't say that, please :)

Well, I talked to one of the people in charge and he said that about other distributions. I might send an Email through the mailing list of Lubuntu and LXDE but I know the answer already :D

I'll hold that for now and will discuss about it later ... it's in my mind ;)

OK, I'm confused. I thought this was supposed to be Lubuntu specific? I know LXDE works on all other similar distros, but they already have support for their version. For instance, Mint has an LXDE thread on their forum. And I know from testing both of them myself, Mint LXDE 11 and Lubuntu 11.04 have some significant differences. So, if I was running Mint LXDE, I would go to the Mint forum. If I have questions about Lubuntu, I don't want to have to swim through all the other questions about Mint, Fedora, openSUSE, etc. to find Lubuntu specific information. (I don't go to the Ford dealership if I want to buy a Chevy.)

I like the idea to have a dedicated Lubuntu thread. It should have it's own place.

Just my opinion. It's your house...you furnish it the way you want.

We have a Page on Facebook "Lubuntu Addicted and Loving It" and a facebook group for the members of LOSG. We don't need complicated stuff. Anyone who is using Lubuntu and a Forum Member is able to join by signing up his/her name, that's all :) no code of conduct to be signed, no mailing list, nothing.

By the way, for those who signed the code of conduct, they should know how much it's a pain in the neck :P the process is too long IMHO.

Thanks for your suggestion KBD47 :)

Edit:
As for knowing more about Lubuntu, One Stop Thread is there for a reason :D

I'd be willing to offer what help I can, when I can, even if it's not much...
I'm quite enjoying my Lubuntu 11.10 experience thus far and will definitely be recommending it in the near future. ^_^d

"By the way, for those who signed the code of conduct, they should know how much it's a pain in the neck :razz: the process is too long IMHO."

Don't underestimate tiny little things. Rome wasn't build in one day :)
If you help someone by answering his/her question and got his/her problem fixed, that's an achievement and you should be proud of it. It's about quality, not quantity :)

WELCOME TO LOSG :D

Lubuntu gave you lots of things and I'm sure you are willing to return the favour and this is the right place to start from ;)

amjjawad, thanks for what you have done so far. For a new user like me, it was hard to find threads specically talk about Lubuntu.

I can't wait to see more progresses both on Lubuntu and the discussions on it.

Thanks.

Lubuntu One Stop Group - Post #1 - which explain everything about this group in theory but not practically. In order to give a real practical example, see the endless battle here:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1812877

This is how one should do with each and every thread. I know the problem isn't solved but me and other friends have gone even beyond extra miles. We need to follow the same with Lubuntu. Each thread is a battle that we must be the winners :D

Hey, amjjawad, I know you told us how to do a search for lubuntu-related things, perhaps you could give a link (is that possible with searches?) so that I/we don't have to keep doing all that every time we 'go Lubu.' Then it would show up in my chromium speed dial thing and I would do it more often.

And that's a good thread, that is. Bookmarked it for future reference-I did an install of the 12.04 alpha this morning and it's not booting, so I want it removed. :(

I'm not feeling well and I can't really be on forum or anything. Above all, I have some kind of personal situation that I must deal with now.
I have ignored that last night and wrote a long guide (well, guess you know me now) but I'm not going to overdoing it today as well.

Keep up the good work, I trust you but PLEASE PM me in case there is any case you come across and need some kind of help.

I'll do my best to come back soon :)

Well, get well soon, and as you say, don't overdo it. While the group's not going to fall apart over a week, it will over a month. If you see what I mean. The point is that you will take longer to recover from massively overdoing it than from taking a few days out.

Do something fun. :)

Greetings from the frontier!

Well, at least I guess that's the right name for my situation right now... I've just downloaded Ocelot's .iso and plan to explore it through Live CD starting tomorrow, and thus leave windows's territory.

I have a pretty old machine at home, and so does my sister-in-law. We're having a hard time using them. I've been thinking about turning to Linux for quite a good time, but last time I tried to run Kurumin's live CD (a very interesting, though no longer available Brazilian distro) on her computer the poor devil just froze.

Some weeks ago I heard of Lubuntu. I spent some time reading about it on the internet, the made-for-your-old-pc and stuff, and I finally decided to give it a try.

But - and there's always a But - the last time I had a little end-user contact with Linux was 4 years ago, with Ubuntu G'd-knows-whatever-version-it-was. (The once I tried to run Kurumin on my sis-in-law's pc just doesn't count at all). So, it'll be pretty much a jump into the dark. Lots of what I read here so far sounded like German spoken by a toothless Vietnamese with a piercing through his tongue :confused:

So, this is my first post ever in a Linux forum, and I'm very glad I found you guys. It's plain to see that I'll learn my eyes off with you all. And I'd really like to join the group, but I just can't think of any possible question I could answer to anyone!! ROFL

(I think I saw a Basics section @LOST, maybe I should start there and not here, but I just loved it here and wanted to start my posting in this thread :P)

Guess I've already written too bloody much. See you guys!

Hello and Welcome!

Lots of what I read here so far sounded like German spoken by a toothless Vietnamese with a piercing through his tongue :confused:As long as there are dedicated good helpful people around and Lubuntu One Stop thread, etc ... it's never a jump in the dark, it's a jump in the right place which we call Light and that's is Lubuntu ;)


So, this is my first post ever in a Linux forum, and I'm very glad I found you guys.
We are glad we do have a new user who is willing to breath new life into two old machines using The One and Only Lubuntu :D


And I'd really like to join the group, but I just can't think of any possible question I could answer to anyone!! ROFL "Learn and Help" is our aim :)


(I think I saw a Basics section @LOST, maybe I should start there and not here, but I just loved it here and wanted to start my posting in this thread :P)Yes, better if this post was there on LOST (Lubuntu One Stop Thread) but that's not a problem at all. The idea of this group came from LOST anyway :)

Take care and we're waiting for you!

P.S.

Have you checked Lubuntu One Stop Thread?
If no, then what are you waiting for? :D

The "L" in Lubuntu has many meanings if you ask me. Don't tell me it's: LXDE + Ubuntu. Yes and NO. For me, I see more meanings in that.
L = Love = Lubuntu and Linux Love that you share with everyone.
L = Light = Light is better than Dark
L = Lightweight = Lightweight as nothing else but rock solid.
L = Learn = Learning in NO TIME :)

And more :)

Have FUN with Lubuntu!

I've installed Kurumin a coupla times in my good days, just the bread-and-butter way, no advanced configs. Let's see what happens when I get my sticky fingers on Lubuntu. Are you acquainted with that distro? Knoppix-based, user friendly and quite cute, made some sensation in Brazil. Carlos Morimoto, its creator, gave up the project (reached version 7) in 2008.

Just recorded the Live CD from my pendrive (right now I'm feeling too tired and too lazy to learn how to make a Live USB disk). Rebooting the machine to try and launch the CD.

Or, use the menu to find synaptic package manager, click on it, put in your password if it asks, and under search put: unetbootin
Do that for other software you want to download. Just click on it inside synaptic, hit apply, then have it install it.

Beans are posts, but they only count in the support forums, i.e. not this one. At 50 beans, you can edit your profile. As you progress through the bean count, you get different messages at the top. Some people hide their bean-count for their own reasons.

Which Lubuntu version are you using? My wifi was pretty lame in 11.04 but very good in 11.10. I think the 3.0 kernel in 11.10 provides better wireless support.

If you post a lot of completely pointless posts in order to increase your post count it is likely to do more than just decrease post count if they get moved.

Then help people as and when you can - when I first started using ubuntu in 2007 it was my first longterm use of linux - it didn't take long to get to 100 posts in support forum - instead of posting in non-support threads - look for support requests you can help with.

How can you learn? but being active and help others to find a solution for their problems.

Lubuntu Marketing

Lubuntu is shaping up very nicely now, and 12.04 looks to be an exciting new release, with new native software, additional support, less bugs...the works.

Anyway, amjjawad, I, and several other people believe that Lubuntu needs more publicity and marketing to become as successful as the other *buntus. He would like feedback and ideas, you can post them here.

Anyone with connections of any sort is highly valued, but anyone can make contributions via ideas, artwork, multimedia, etc. If this turns out to be popular, we can probably maintain an IRC channel or something to discuss.

So, I hope to see contributions from each and every one of you, and ASAP.

Lubuntu One Stop Group,

I hope everyone is fine and doing well.

I understand that everyone is busy with his/her Real Life issues and it's the holidays season, I guess? that's why I see less activities here.

Anyway, I did not start any new thread or did not send any email via mailing list regarding the marketing project.

Lubuntu, just like any other project, needs a marketing team. With all honesty in the world, this must be a team work ... 2 or 3 members will do nothing much, period. At least, one or two must be dedicated to Marketing.

Anyway, long story short, I'll wait for a month Maximum. I'll send an email via mailing list regarding that too. If there is no reply, then I'll just forget about it because one or two users/people can't do much, I'm afraid.

On a side note, because I'm jobless and because Computer Stuff is one of the best things I do, I might start a project or something that related to Linux. This will be on totally different thread :)

Hope to see some more activities and myself is included. I need to be active again. Few posts here and there is not what I used to do :/

Forum Staff and Moderators: Thank you for ALL your support and help :)

Every member of this forum: THANK YOU is NOTHING ... wish you all the best :)

Every member and user of Lubuntu: What shall I say? you simple ROCK :D

Happy New Year and may all your dreams and wishes come true :)

I'm sure 2012 will be much better than 2011 :)

Remember, you do NOT have to join any team in order to help, support and contribute ... you know that you can do anything wherever you are :)

Great, I think this should make things a little less chaotic. :)

Just a pointer, the dev team it seems is not free to join, I guess you have to ask on the mailing list? AFAIK, the other teams are fine.

Nothing against the dev team, I appreciate they need to keep the packages secure.

Oh yeah, and hi, hope you're okay. :)

Great, I think this should make things a little less chaotic. :)
Indeed :)

It's not that we want to close it, it's Launchpad and Canonical Policy so these sub-teams must be moderated and an approval is needed to join. You are already with us ;) but ...

FOR ANYONE ELSE who would like to join, I'm ready to vouch for him/her :)
But of course I need to know him/her first and help them to choose the right team that will help them to improve their skills.

Hi :D
Yes, I'm fine as long as I'm back to action ;)

Hi all you can count me in, if that's OK.
I will try to change my location, but I don't have 50 beans yet so I've been locked out of my account, but I will try.
Thank you.

Hello and Welcome to a new world with absolutely no limits where you can set your imagination free and dream bigger :)

Congratulation for making the right move and you'll feel more than home here, you have my word :)

You need a signature instead of location. However, not sure if you can do that with less than 50 posts?!

I've just stumbled into this thread by accident, and though I have used the Lubuntu One Stop Thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1844755) several times and often recommend it to Lubuntu users with any questions, this one was unknown to me.

It obviously serves a different purpose to the LOST, though perhaps is similar in some ways; this seems more for chat than to answer specific problems.

Lubuntu has been the saviour of an old laptop of mine which just about managed Ubuntu, though incredibly slowly, and has led me to installing it on my netbook with Atom 270, 1GB ram, where it just bowls along at blistering speed. I also tend to add many of the default Ubuntu packages to Lubuntu for the ability to share files between all my machines more easily, and even though LibreOffice is slower than abiword on both machines, it is still worth having, in my opinion.

I've been a member of Ubuntuforums since July 2005 when I first tried Ubuntu 5.04, after years of dos then Windows, and I am very active on the forums generally, helping out wherever I can. Please consider me a member of LOSG, if you'll have me.

Thanks for choosing and using Lubuntu and by the way, Lubuntu these days are being used on old and NEW machines as well. Count me here, I'm using Lubuntu now on Lenovo Core i5 with 4GB RAM :)

I'm trying to get to where you're at. I'm not as Linux - savvy as most of the posters around here, though, which is a bit of a disadvantage.

I have Lubuntu installed on my acer aspire one netbook. 11.10 was actually a bit sluggish for some reason, but 12.04 has been nice. Good job!

I've been using L12.04 since final release and insofar it's been great! Addmittedly, I change the programs and "bloat" it some, but it's still the fastest I've used on my ol' P4. Great work! ^_^d

Hey wolfen69, I to have Lubuntu installed in my Acer aspire One net book. Last year i took the sata Hdd and installed a 30 gig ssd drive, just to mess around with, this is the net book that i use now for pretty much every thing other than real hevy duty stuff. I have had Lubuntu on it since 11.04, now it has 12.04, and I agree that 12.04 is much faster. When I changed Hdds my battery life went from 6 Hrs, to 8 Hrs, and I can log in to the Internet from the time the bios post screen is done. 15 sec. I think to me this is awesome, you get really addicted to that type of response. anyways that said I'm loving life with Lubuntu.:guitar:

check out the Lubuntu One Stop Thread you will love it.

rokytnji, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account has less than 50 posts.

Nope. I have about 90 and have been a member since 2008.

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

I guess I am just special. I don't run Lubuntu. I run LXDE on AntiX (Debian Testing) and am a Linux distro team member on a couple of distros.

I write .pet packages for Puppy Linux from Debian .deb files. But I guess I am a redheaded step child here. So if this post goes through. The above reasons are moot on why I can't access the one stop thread.

By the way. amjjawad knows me from LXDE forums and we are on each others friend list on here. I have been a Ubuntu user since 7.10 and currently have 10.04LTS on 2 Desktops that can handle them.

Like I said. I must be special. :wink:

Hope your stuff we talked about amjjawad finally settled down. These folks need folks like you.

Hi rokytnji, am I to understand that you could not get into http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1844755 ?. Their no restrictions on that thread that I know of, but if there is an issue I'm sure amjjawad can fix it when he reads this. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding.

Durn. Just when I thought I was a special type of LXDE user and that a filter had detected that.

I kid around alot Borunco being a tattooed Linux Biker. So don't take me too serious.

I guess I was lucky enough to catch the forum issue at the right moment in time in this forum. Must be a bad spot in the universe tonight or a full moon, (no, that was saturday):)
