Tyler (which has recently been seen on the IRC) made an amazing review of Elive 3.8.4 using the 64bit version:
I profited to improve a few things while watching the video
So, the sentence of the startup applications has been rephrased (minute 1:01), removing the negation words ("add or remove") to make it more fast to understand, I hope the new sentence is more clear now
looking now like:
- before: Select features to automatically start on your desktop. To add or remove them later you must edit your file:
- after: Select the desired features for your desktop. You can add later more applications to startup on your desktop by editing the file:
There's a little brainstorming about the hotkeys thing:
- in the first of the video he had the hotkeys PDF opened (live mode), but seems like it was not well noticed (not closed also, which requires to read the first hotkey of the list)
- in the second part of the video (installed mode) the PDF doesn't appears, but he searched for the hotkeys and went to the E16 documentation which has similar hotkeys (but not / all the ones of elive)
mmh, maybe the pdf should appear on the installed mode too ? sounds like coherent for the first startup, and maybe WITH the close buttons for the live mode but not for the installed ? @triantares what you think?
he also was searching for more hotkeys in the minute 15:40, so sounds like it should be opened at first installed-mode desktop
A good bonus for this forum is that he wanted to modify the startup applications in minute 18:20 (like mentioned before) and he went to google, what happened? first result, a howto of this forum explaining it
About the hotkeys, he finally found it on the dock (so its a good place to have it as a launcher!) 22:30
Anyhow, comments about the video:
- should be the hotkeys included also in the installed mode for the first desktop startup?
- the hotkeys pdf seems to be opened too small to be read, maybe it should be put fullscreen? (thats even more annoying) @triantares?
- I think we may need more documentation / information to the users, like explaining how to close the windows (that's hotkeys stuff) or how to startup-applications works , the question is how to do that? and there's not a real answer, except making a short video tutorial or something similar
- looking all the video, ALL his small difficulties comes from the hotkeys not-knowing, this means every user is affected by this too
