    Project Looking Glass

    Hi,

    I am one of the project leads for Project Looking Glass (http://lg3d.dev.java.net). This is a research project working on a new desktop that uses the 3D chipsets available in most desktop machines to explore new possibilities in UI design.

    I'd like to create .deb packages for Ubuntu of this project and all it's dependencies to make the project more accessible to Ubuntu users. Which is the correct forum to discuss issues such as where various parts of the system should be installed ?

    Thanks

    Paul

    you may want to go into #ubuntu or the development mailing lists to ask this. That's where the developers hang out most

    I'd love .deb packages for looking glass. I've played with it some. Yowser!

    Welcome and WOW. I like looking glass a lot. I have played with it much and I would love to try it on my Ubuntu box without the hassle of a live CDs. I would get in touch with the MOTUs:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU

    As they can help you the most.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the Ubuntu Forums, paulby.

    I've followed the news regarding Project Looking Glass since the initial announcement and look forward to easy to use .debs for Ubuntu.

    I'd like to try them. I've tried LiveCDs with PLG, but running Linux off a CD can be awfully slow. Is there any chance of the debs including customization manuals so I can change the menu and fiddle with the color scheme?

    The color scheme etc is controlled in the source code at the moment. It's something that should be user configurable eventually (and actually would be easy to implement) but it's low on our priority list at the moment.

    The menu's will be configurable, by hand editing some xml files in the short term.

    Fair enough. I can wait.

    Hand-editing XML files? No problem. I use Openbox, after all, and most of its config files are XML.
