Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu


Is it possible to add Xubuntu slideshow to the current packaging? We would like to enable that for lucid.

Or do you prefer that we do that in a separate source package (from https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu/+spec/alternate-versions, it's not clear whether it's possible yet ;).

Hi, Lionel!

Sorry, I have been meaning to update people on this. Time coming up this weekend :)

Yes, all slideshows should be under the same source package.

In the the latest trunk, it is now possible to add a new slideshow to the existing source package. (This was done by Roman for slides/kubuntu, so you can use that work as a template). You will need to update the Makefile and debian/control as well, to define the new packages, but mostly it's just copy + paste work.

The slideshows share the link directory in common (slides/kubuntu and slides/ubuntu have symlinks to reflect that, simply for testing purposes). slideshow.js provides the important slideshow-related script stuff including localization, receiving parameters and (of course) running the slideshow,

I think my more recent commits contain grumblings about localization stuff, but making that prettier as we go along won't affect the individual slideshows or translators in any way, so don't worry about that. Localization is (and will probably always be) rather transparent.

If you would like, I'm happy to set up an empty Xubuntu slideshow for you in a while, then you can add the content to a bzr branch.

Hi Dylan,

Thanks for the details. :)
I've set up an experimental branch at lp:~xubuntu-team/ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu/xubuntu. I'll see with our artwork/documentation/marketing/I-don't-know-which-one-yet teams to create some slides for Xubuntu. Then I think it'll be easy to include in the official package by merging this branch.

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu - 13

ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu (13) lucid; urgency=low

  [ Dylan McCall ]
  * Updated localization setup and build scripts. Localization
    is now done with a single template file for each slideshow
  * Build script must use brute force (and cmp) to decide which
    slides have actually been translated.
  * Added htmlclean to remove unnecessary content from built
  * Added room for ubuntu-upgrade slides.

  [ Lionel Le Folgoc ]
  * Initial import of Xubuntu slides lp: #514011

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Bump release in welcome.html to 10.04.
  * Remove htmlclean as its in universe and not currently worth the MIR.
  * Tidy up generate-local-slides.sh and make it less noisy.
  * Updated translations from Launchpad.
  * Add update-launchpad-translations.sh, a small bit of shell code to
    take the grunt work out of updating translations.
  * Place ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu-upgrade files in their own
