Daryna XFCE CE Final long delay

Postby merlwiz79 on Fri Nov 16, 2007 1:15 pm

I am sorry but there is going to a long Delay for the Final release of Daryna XFCE CE.
I am leaving tomorrow to go and visit family and friends.(16hrs on the road)
I won't be back until the 1st week of December.
Them my wife will be having a surgery the 2nd week of December and depending on it she may need another.

Then I have the bugs to work out.
Bugs:

The main bug is Firefox, it is using a lot of memory, for 13 tabs it use 60MBs or more.
Daryna(main) and Xubuntu Gutsy use only 48MBs with the same 13 tabs with the same version of Firefox and default settings.
I am to the point of customizing Xubuntu to have the same settings as Daryna to find what is causing it.
SeaMonkey has this problem as well.
Firefox-3.0 doesn't.

Firefox Freezes when trying to play Real media.(In Daryna Gnome Beta as well)

Haven't looked into.

Installation of latex209 has produced an error message (as in Daryna Gnome Beta).
http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopi ... 1414#41414
Haven't looked into.

Loud beeps coming for nowhere?
http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=41610
I don't have any system sounds set but people have loud beeps.
I can't think what would cause it since I can't reproduce it.
Need to find all the apps that they installed and what sound wav file they are hearing.

I hoped to have it done before I left but the Firefox problem has keep me for doing that.
Once I fix that isn't from Gutsy, I can release the final release.

Merlwiz,
Thanks for all your work on the XFCE edition. I've tried it and it looks very good. Perhaps using Opera or another browser would help those that have a problem with memory, at least until a solution is found. Anyway, have a nice trip and best wishes for your wife.

merlwiz79,

No rush. Take your time. Cassandra Xfce works fine, looks great. Who knows, maybe Santa will put Daryna Xfce under the tree this year.

Merlwiz,

thank you for your great work on XFCE.
Hope everything will go fine and your wife will be well soon.
No problem with delay, it's worth of waiting for good things. And with a peace of mind that your family is fine you will be able to do your best for Mint.
XFCE Mint could be a nice Christmas gift for all. :wink:

btw. I like kenetics' suggestion about replacing FF with Opera.

It will contain Xfce 4.4.2, or only in a future version?

Hi friends, very good job, i think that for the XFCE version we must choose a light browser, but if you want firefox, for XFCE the ICEWEASEL browser is the best, its the same that firefox but less fat.
