CommunityCreate Project Community SiteSomewhere where the team can chat freelyStartupRickard Johansson100Possibly a Google+ community - Solus use IRC as they found IRC more conductive as it's not thread based, gitter?

https://gitter.im/Maokei/BudgieRemix
gitter link: https://gitter.im/Maokei/BudgieRemix?utm_source=share-link&utm_medium=link&utm_campaign=share-link
5
CommunityDistribution NameLets get an agreed name of the distroStartupDavid Mohammed100Goal is possibly "Ubuntu Budgie" but until then (due to trademark) assume we cannot use this name and have to use another name e.g. "budgie-remix" just like "gnome-remix" before they moved to "Ubuntu Gnome" --> "budgie-remix" has been chosed
6
CommunityLogoWe need a logo for the project and material16.04Hex Cube75need a .svg file - inkscape? could possibly borrow some of the budgie logo from Solus but that would need to be negotiated with Ikey

http://wotomoro.com/PUBLICLIB/Spiral/slides/spiral%20double%202.html

HexCube has a nice logo - sent email to Joshua to have a look
7
CommunityForumNeed a forum for the project users to communicateStartup0UbuntuForums? Forums for support certainly are good, while I and many others think they're outdated by newer tech, some people like forums still
8
CommunityDefault Software - method to agreeNeed a community involved method to agree the default softwareStartup0Initially could mirror the Solus default install or that of Ubuntu Gnome as Budgie is gnome based so would make sense

suggested default software:
nautilus (files)
file-roller
gnome-software
gnote
gedit
gnome-terminal
chromium
eog (image viewer)
evince
gnome-calculator
simple-scan
gnome-orca
gnome-screenshot
gnome-sushi
9
DevelopmentMinimal Default softwarePackage a way to install just the minimum software required16.04budgie-desktop will install all of "ubuntu budgie" - lets have a "budgie-minimal" that installs just (for example), Nautilus, gedit, gnome-terminal - kind of think the distro should be minimal by default - it fits the minimal style of budgie
10
DevelopmentCreate initial prototypeCreate a test ISO that we can download to get initial ideasStartupDavid Mohammed100https://sourceforge.net/projects/budgie-remix/files/?source=navbar
11
DevelopmentSource Code RepositorySomewhere where development can be contributed toStartupDavid Mohammed100Probably GitHub as is easier to contribute to rather than launchpad --> https://github.com/budgie-remix --> just shout if you want to be a contributer (its easier than having to fork and push stuff)
12
DevelopmentCreate a prototypecreate a prototype to show a clean "ubuntu budgie"StartupDavid Mohammed100https://sourceforge.net/projects/budgie-remix/files/?source=navbar
13
DevelopmentCreate a prototype v2moving forward demonstrate a better prototype with correct non handcranked packagesStartupDavid Mohammed100making progress - ETA 6th March

released 5th March as tech-preview 2
14
DevelopmentCreate a beta releasebeta release16.04David Mohammed100at a minimum beta should be installable - ETA 24th March
15
DevelopmentCreate 16.04 release16.04 release16.040ETA release date 26th April
16
DevelopmentLaunchpad PPAPPA to do buildsStartupDavid Mohammed100Depends upon Distribution Name

ppa:fossfreedom/budgie-desktop for the release

ppa:fossfreedom/testbudgie for devs/testers
17
Developmentbudgie themeDevelop a distro theme17.04Joshua Fogg0Current theme is Arc
18
budgie browser themeDepending upon the default browser - need to have a default theme16.10Joshua Fogg20Justin possibly to liaiase with horst3180 (Acr creator) re Arc used in the distro and if we want the Arc Firefox theme

David - created an initial package to install the 3 arc theme addons (arc-firefox-theme) together with firefox ... the packaging is crap and not sustainable - need to sort out better packaging
19
Developmentbudgie iconsDevelop an icon theme17.04Joshua Fogg0Current icon set is Moka + Fab
20
Developmentbudgie fontChoose the font for the desktop16.04David Mohammed100Ubuntu Fonts? - need to use gnome-tweak tool to experiment --> Going to use Ubuntu Fonts similar to Unity - it looks quite nice - prototype to be updated soon
21
Developmentbudgie logon (lightdm) fontsChoose the font for lightdm16.04David Mohammed100Ubuntu Mono fonts / Droid / fab mono? --> Going to be Ubuntu fonts - prototype to be updated soon
22
DevelopmentSupport Ubuntu indicatorsNeed to support ubuntu indicators16.100Probably starting point is xfce indicator-applet

check if xfce is using gtk2 or gtk3 - if the former then look to see if what gtk3 indicator applet is available.
23
DevelopmentMissing network icon in panelNetwork icon is not available16.04David Mohammed100Solus uses Network Manager and nm-applet is started on startup to provide the icon --> bug raised on Solus since it doesnt appear in Ubuntu - https://github.com/solus-project/budgie-desktop/issues/346 --> from Ikey - looks like the ubuntu patch to network-manager-applet is causing the issue here - appindicator support is probably hiding the X11 icon. Using xchat shows that the panel is displaying X11 applets correctly. In the release tar ball is a docs subfolder that describes how the applet API. Maybe that is some help here to convert xfce4-indicator-plugin to a budgie applet

as a workaround wicd-gtk will display an applet in the system tray which will allow you to change network stuff

found a fix - need to launch nm-applet with dbus-launch - correct via PPA and close
24
DevelopmentIntro TourDevelop and intro tour on login16.100Similar to what Ubuntu Mate does here - share with Solus?
25
DevelopmentReduce Distro sizeNeed to look at the packages initially installed16.10David Mohammed10By default recommended will install more packages than necessary --> its my fault - wrong starting point for the initial install and I included all development libraries when adding virtual box additions ... prototype to be updated soon
26
DevelopmentAgree initial panel layouttop vs bottom/one vs two/indicator defaults16.04David Mohammed100Two could be very crowded for users with smaller screens so I'd suggest one. As far as location, currently Budgie doesn't behave AS well on the bottom as the top
27
CommunityDefault WallpaperWhat is the first look wallpaper16.04Joshua Fogg50suggest for the first release look at flickr and choose a creative common licensed photo(s) that allows distribution

something like this? http://hyperdude111.deviantart.com/art/Xplo-460418499

currently for beta 1 have used hyperdudes xplo
28
CommunityDefault LightDM wallpaper/colourWhat is the first login wallpaper16.04David Mohammed50suggest for the first release look at flickr and choose a creative common licensed photo(s) that allows distribution

have selected 5 + xplo wallpapers for beta 1.
29
CommunityDefault Distro Icon for LightDMNeed an agreed icon for lightdm logon16.04100budding artist? it might just end up being a "b" !!

lightdm-gtk-greeter does not support logo's.

32
TestingTriage issuesHow and who will triage issues16.0450Solus uses bugzilla but that's because it's a whole OS, Ubuntu Budgie could likely just use Github as it's fairly useable

We'll use launchpad: https://launchpad.net/budgie-remix
33
CommunityAgree icons on desktop or notshall we have icons on the desktop or not16.04David Mohammed100if yes - which icons? "Desktop icons are such a windows thing"... --> we are going to allow desktop icons but by default no icons will be displayed. Prototype to be updated
34

51

52
DevelopmentCommunication Strategyhow should we keep in touchStartup0Everyone is all sort of timezones ...
53
DevelopmentAlternative Layoutsdevelop a way to give alternative layouts16.100should really hook into the welcome screen
54
DevelopmentCreate Ubiquity SlideshowCreate Ubiquity Slideshow16.04Hex Cube100base on current xenial package to customise for distro

in the PPA is ubiquity-slideshow package with a budgie-remix slideshow. Needs words and screenshots to reflect budgie and the arc-theme.
55
DevelopmentLive Distro tidyupsLive Distro tidyups16.04David Mohammed100Should be autologin, also a lot of obvious stuff - cursor needs fixing, fonts could do with a nicer touch, arc dark is probably a bit too dark for the average user, try Arc Darker (it's in between) --> using schema overrides - prototype and package to be updated
56
DevelopmentWeb Browser chooserWeb Browser Chooser16.100Browsers tend to get a bit personal - maybe have a "chooser" and allow the user to select the one to install/deinstall
57
DevelopmentApps chooserApps Chooser16.100It could be used to select the users preferred apps like browser, email client, etc - could even add chrome to it and have it download the chrome_current.deb which adds an apt entry to do updates
58
DevelopmentCheck installerCheck the installer16.04David Mohammed75make sure the installer actually installs - may need a slideshow to work properly

added a workaround in the README - looks like a bug in ubiquity - need to monitor this. Have talked in Pinguy and has confirmed the workaround - he is not sure in this is a bug in his ISO Builder or ubiquity - so will just need to monitor for now

new pinguy installer seems to be better
59
DevelopmentChange Fonts & Icons & Theme on LogonChange Fonts & Icons & Theme on Logon16.100Thinking ahead - if the budgie-desktop package is installed then the fonts & icons & theme used will be the inherited fonts & icons & theme the user session was using. This will not give a good impression about the desktop. Can we hook into the welcome screen and give the option to the user to choose our defaults?
60
DevelopmentAdd a gnome-shell dashboardLook at xfdashboard and see if it will work with budgie16.10David Mohammed100(david mohammed 27th Feb 16) xfdashboard available via this PPA https://launchpad.net/~xubuntu-dev/+archive/ubuntu/extras - it reports "budgie-panel" as an app - bug raised on upstream - https://github.com/gmc-holle/xfdashboard/issues/113 - closed. Further bug report raised - https://github.com/gmc-holle/xfdashboard/issues/116

incorporated via CTRL+TAB - however upstream may not add the daemon control to make xfdashboard appear instantaeously
61
DevelopmentCustomise Panel OrderPanel order is a little weird - needs some work here16.10David Mohammed50Upstream issue - the date shouldnt be the right most applet by default - gsettings in this area is just a random list of numbers rather than real panel applet names. Doesnt appear to be anyway to change this default - only the user can do this

DM: patched via data/panel.ini - bug report raised on upstream. Upstream confirmed will create a "vendor" file - so when they do we can backout the specific patch we have made
62
DevelopmentRework the best ubuntu indicators to add to budgieubuntu has great indicators that can be reworked for budgie16.100Ubuntu indicators as mostly written in python. Budgie provides GIR bindings for its applet system. Lets see if we can rework slightly the best ubuntu indicators to become native budgie applets for the panel

DM: Raised with upstream - python plugins not yet supported.
63
DevelopmentMake budgie keyboard friendlykeyboard shortcuts for key navigation16.100need help from upstream I would guess. Stuff like move to different workspaces etc needs to be developed. Win + N toggles raven, CTRL+ALT+DEL - exit, ALT F2 - budgie-run-dialog
64
DevelopmentArc-theme repackagerework arc-theme package from github source16.04David Mohammed100Arc-Theme package taken from Noob-Labs - its very weirdly packaged - extracted .deb files from Horst, renamed packages to Arc-Sold etc. Its not built from source which it should be and misses stuff like chrome & firefox themes --> 06March - added to testbudgie ppa
65
DevelopmentShip with up-to-3 themes in totalChoose an additional themes to ship with16.10David Mohammed100current arc-theme - vertex? any other paperbased themes? what are peoples favourites that will work with budgie?

DM: Shipping with vertex - need to see if possible to ship a vertex firefox theme
66
DevelopmentAdd support for printingcurrently dont ship CUPS/HPLIP - should we?16.04David Mohammed100need to see how other ubuntu live CD's package printing capabilites - dont know what additional packages we should ship with.

yes is the answer - installed by default

hplip now added as a dependency to budgie-desktop-environment
67
Developmentscreenlock shows gnome-screensaver locklock screen when timeout kicks in is not lightdm16.100raven correctly invokes lightdm lockscreen ... however on normal timeout gnome-screensaver lockscreen kicks in - I wonder if any of this stuff need to be done - http://www.webupd8.org/2013/08/lightdm-session-locker-light-locker.html

looks like light-locker is broken - so will need to wait until this is fixed: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/light-locker/+bug/1470019
68
Developmentscreenlock is not invoked with CTRL+ALT+Lstandard lock screen keyboard combination doesnt do anything16.10Rickard Johansson100Add to customization script:gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys screensaver "<Primary><Alt>l"

DM: Gnome-shell is Win+L
69
DevelopmentShip Files (Nautilus) v3.18Should we ship with nautilus v3.18?16.04David Mohammed100question posed: https://xpressubuntu.wordpress.com/2016/03/06/budgie-remix-to-ship-with-files-nautilus-v3-18/

v 3.18 added to the PPA. Default to small icons in the icon-view instead of the huge icons by default
70
DevelopmentShip chromium and plank arc-themesarc-theme package is not currently building the extra package16.100need to understand why the extra folder in the arc-theme package is not being built into the deb.

next find a way to register the installed .crx automatically

arc-theme - https://github.com/budgie-remix/arc-theme

DevelopmentShip with gnome-games or a subsetgnome-games adds lots of games - ship all or just some?16.04David Mohammed100suduko, solitaire, mines, mahjongg as the preliminary shipped games
74
DevelopmentShip with libreoffice?Ship with libreoffice and an iconset16.04David Mohammed100if we ship with libreoffice what libreoffice iconset will work well with Arc/Moka ?

libreoffice is a 450Mb install! this will massively increase the ISO size
