Ximian Desktop

Circa December, 2003:

  • Ximian comes with Galeon for a Web Browser. Galeon doesn't read any of your existing Mozilla information (by default, anyways; there may be some way to trick it into reading it). And Evolution uses Mozilla when you click on a link in an email.
  • I'm not sure about this Panel-Across-the-top-of-the-screen thing. I've spent way more time on it on the laptop and have moved some of the default thingies from the top bar down to the bottom bar where I like them.
  • The System->Personal Settings dialogue is a bit sparse. I am not entirely sure what is missing, except that I have the feeling that every time I go looking for something I don't find it there.
  • I'm not entirely sure that the SunFront key functionality is working properly on the Windows Menu key. The Windows key still won't permit itself to be bound to an action.
  • The installer is reasonably slick, but it took longer to install on the laptop than I expected (about two hours). There doesn't seem to be a way to run the install in an unattended manner, nor any way to integrate it into the existing Kickstart.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
