fredq : My current resolution is 1024 X 600. I generally do not have resolution issues (have only run into it installing a program or two in Windows). Will the problems described be fixed before the final release?

Thanks for your video feedback. Although the video is terrible :), we could see importants things. It seems you have a netbook, what's your current resolution ?

This video is terrible (picture, audio, commentary etc quality SUCKS), although, I did spend time making it for you guys. It's about 5 minutes, but I discuss problems that I said below, plus a few more. Mostly about VLC, but some "extra goodies" about fullscreen mode and windows not properly maximizing.

I spent time making this. Please watch this to see what to fix and what problems I have demonstrated and detected. Thanks for your time. I know you'll do your best to fix it :D

#44 (DVD playback) tested in liveUSB mode. When DVD inserted (ext. optical drive), DVD automounted and VLC launched. DVD did not auto-play. When selected "DVD", errors appear. To get DVD to play, you have to "blindly" tell the DVD to start from about 4 or 5 choices, one being "/dev/sr0" (or something close). In my opinion, this needs to be fixed (or VLC replaced, at least by default) before the release of LM 13 XFCE. A suggestion to be made wolud be to upgrade from  VLC 2.0.1 to VLC 2.0.2. I personally love and use VLC. It pains me to say that VLC 2.0.1 has been the worst release ever (for me, personally) because of all the various bugs. Try upgrading to VLC 2.0.2 and I will retest this (I haven't updated to VLC 2.0.2 in GNU/Linux yet due to the only reliable source being a "daily stable PPA". I'm waiting for a more stable PPA, such as from webupd8 or another more stable source). Anyway, I don't mean for this to be a rant, I'm just warning you of the consequences of using VLC 2.0.1 as the default media player. VLC 2.0.2 has hundreds of bugfixes and hopefully will have fixed most of the issues I have been personally experiencing. When I chose "/dev/rs0", the title menu popped up. Sound and video worked fine. When I tried to move to a different chapter, it reported an error and brought me back to the main screen. I did test this in liveUSB mode, so this may be the problem, but I believe it is because of the bugs that are present in VLC 2.0.1. Reported as "Warning".

 

Here are some of the errors I received :

" <style type="text/css"> p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } </style>

Playback failure:

DVDRead could not open the disc "/dev/dvd".

Your input can't be opened:

VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/dvd'. Check the log for details.

Playback failure:

DVDRead could not open the disc "/dev/dvd".

Your input can't be opened:

VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/dvd'. Check the log for details.

Playback failure:

DVDRead could not open the disc "/dev/dvd".

Hope this helps,

Confirm Bug (Orig. by Clem) : Error message recieved when trying to send something to the trash. Am able to permanently delete items by Shift + Del or by using the "Permanently Remove" option. Reported as "Warning"

THINK I tested #105 (Hybrid USB ISO test using ImageWriter). I used the "dd" command in GNU/Linux (Ubuntu 12.04). I didn't use ImageWriter, but it's still using the ISO. Please mention if I should not participate in this when using the "dd" command in liveUSB mode. Reported as "Success"!

 

PS : What happened to the MD5 test (must've missed where that convo. went)?

Tested #106 (Bluetooth and battery indicator test) in liveUSB mode. It suceeded. Just a note of warning because install could fail somehow. Hopefully clem tested this in a real install. My adapter is a Bluetooth 4.0 enabled device. I have to manually add a file ("touch /etc/modprobe.d/medialink-btusb.conf") and add the following contents to get my adapter (IO Gear GBU 521) working properly, in ANY distro INCLUDING Ubuntu 12.04. Here are the contents of the file : "install usb:v0A5Cp21E8d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip* /sbin/modprobe btusb; echo 0a5c 21e8 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/btusb/new_id". It is without quotes of course. I am just letting you guys know all of this to be as specific as possible. After I saved the file, I unplugged my adapter, then immediately plugged it back in. The Bluetooth indicator popped up as the bottom (expected behavior). I then proceeded to send a blank file to my phone, which suceeded. Reported as SUCCESS!

PS : I expect my entering in this file manually is due to my device being Bluetooth 4.0 enabled. This "problem" should be "fixed" when new versions of the Linux kernel are used.

*Note : Highlighted for quick scanning of the intended message. I will do this for my lengtheir entries.

I shall download and attempt to test the last outstanding cases.

I will also test out the print screen button.

  • XFApplet-plugin is missing (it'd be nice to get mintmenu working in XFCE this release)
  • the panel height is a little high

I already tested almost everything here. There's only 4 tests left. If you can test these, please do so.

Also, please make sure hitting the Print Screen key launches the screenshot utility. That's something I fixed which was failing previously and I didn't get the opportunity to test it again (it's not possible with Virtualbox btw).
