Follow up on copy/highlight, lightdm, and DE conversions.

Arrgh, not at all what I was trying to say. You need to read these:

I'll grant you that those "Pure LXDE" scripts are dealing with going the other direction but if you don't believe me please install Ubuntu and then try converting it to Lubuntu following only that one line script. I haven't tried it yet but I'd fully expect the kernel to either convert from non-pae to pae or fail altogether (likely not the latter since they install 'ubuntu-minimal') but it would break boot for those with a non-pae machine. I'd also expect an X freeze because the lightdm greeter was not properly changed, and less importantly the plymouth boot screen will barf.

I may be too stupid to use a decent email client but I'm NOT a stupid person!

Now, this is just why I told PhillW and Ali a long time ago that I didn't want to mess much with email lists. It simply uses up too much of what little brain power I have left so I am unsubscribing from the users list.

I'll just focus on the forums where I seem to be appreciated and where I find communication to be much easier.


PS: I'm not angry, I just can't deal with this.

If you don't "remove Ubuntu" you don't get a pure Lubuntu install. You'd get all the packages installed by ubuntu-desktop eg. gedit.
Just something to think about.
