Feature changed by: Karl Cheng (qantas94heavy) Feature #314529, revision 8 Title: Add XFCE and LXDE live cds in software.opensuse.org
- openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed + openSUSE Distribution: Done Priority Requester: Important
Requested by: vazha vandan (vazhavandan) Partner organization: openSUSE.org
Description: There is urgent need to Add XFCE and LXDE live cds in software.opensuse. org page as many Linux users are moving away from traditional DEs(KDE, GNOME) after some rather controversial changes from KDE3.X==>DE4.X and GNOME2.x==>GNOME3.X Many users moving to LXDE and XFCE can try out th DE environments using the live cds provided in the software download page
Business case (Partner benefit): openSUSE.org: To test hardware issues Smaller download compared to DVD Many users are preferring LXDE and XFCE over GNOME and KDE One can keep using live cds in case of system crashes DVD download doesn't support live boots
Discussion: #1: Simone Ramacci (simosito) (2012-10-15 12:26:55) It might be a little expensive, mantainers-wise. If we make LXDE/XFCE isos, why do not make E17 isos and so on? Since this could be a good idea, I'll vote neutral and follow the discussion as it evolves, if anyone provides more pros/cons.
#2: Michal Papis (mpapis) (2013-09-22 21:00:21) (reply to #1) +1 I switched myself to XFCE because of the resource intensive use of KDE 4, there is big user base of Windows XP that can switch to Linux if we can provide lightweight Linux distribution => http://www.pcworld.com/article/2048897/munich-to-hand-out-ubuntu-linux-cds-t... I also got asked by friend interested in using openSUSE Live XFCE image - and I could not help him.
#3: World Without Fences (panchparmeshthi) (2013-12-21 13:01:43) It would be nice to have openSUSE Xfce CD. I agree that openSUSE has best integrated with KDE, but usage and resource usability has become an important factor and Xfce uses less memory, that's for sure. I hope big openSUSE team can maintain Xfce live CD also like it maintains Gnome also....;)-
+ #4: Karl Cheng (qantas94heavy) (2018-07-19 00:03:45) + Rescue live CD has Xfce, available for both TW and Leap.
