yes i can understand ... i was thinking on the volume manager.

I agree with you that inkscape could be on the cd but not on the
default desktop, but for an app as gthumb this is different ... as you
probably need to add an action within the ivman config file ...
xubuntu-default-settings is on default desktop :/.

If xubuntu supports automatic actions for cameras .... maybe the image
viewer should be the same as the app used to "import" photos, if
xubuntu doesn't .... the image viewer can be whatever, and the user
can install an app from the cd and hack the ivman config file if he
wants such feature.

Two Question ... will gimp be on the default install ? and ... is
there a new xubuntu-desktop package somewhere ?

i ask this because i'm trying to maintain uptodate my wiki page as i
told on a post sometimes ago.


i hope this can help not just me.
