Please report bugs at https://launchpad.net/elementary instead of here with relevant details under the correct project. Please include hardware information for hardware specific bugs. Google Plus is not a bug tracker.

elementary OS' Stack Exchange might be a better place to get help if posting here doesn't get any response: http://elementaryos.stackexchange.com/

I know all of you want to get your problems fixed and questions answered, but it's not a good idea to tag the developers.There are several reasons:

1. These guys are super busy.
2. These guys hang out here all the time and probably will see your post, tagging people kind of pleads for extra attention. It's kind of rude.
3. Chances are these guys actually don't know the answer to your problem. Just because Dan's the founder doesn't mean he's also able to debug kernels.

it's currently not possible to upgrade between releases of elementary OS.

elementary loki ? or that features removed?
 
Just migrated to Elementary after using Debian for 2 years. I'm already loving this!!!! :) Just wondering,how can i add google and facebook. for contacts and chat integration. I used to do this on goa(gnome-online-accounts) and see there're only options to add Last.fm and FastMail in poa.(had a sorta long list on Gnome) Are there no plans for facebook and google?

Afaik there are plans but it didn't make it to the current release. There is a feature update planned for loki but I don't remember if onlone acconts are on the list.

In the meantime you can install gnome-online-accounts and it might work as I believe I've read about people using this workaround.

Oh you would have to edit the css of your theme. Look in the elementary theme css for wingpanel things and copy that to your theme of choice

they have left out these packages as installed by default, because adding ppa's has security risks. where you don't know who made the software. it could be violating your privacy or harm your device.

it's hard to add share printer network (LAN) through:
system setting -> printer
so i try from terminal with:
system-config-printer
and then do:
add -> network printer -> windows printer via samba -> browse
it is work!
but unfortunately now "system setting -> printer" forced close every time i try to open.

Hey guys.

I'm trying to use Oranchelo icons, but the notification icons are always missing, a Lamp is showed in place (image below)

Other icons are fine, but those don't show up. I checked Oranchelo folder and they exist there, they also exist in index.theme. I can't identify the problem.

Anyone had this issue using Oranchelo? Any tips? Thanks

How do you get power indicator to show for keyboard/mouse when you don't have laptop/battery? I'm on a desktop and would like to enable power indicator for my wireless keyboard+mouse, assuming their battery status is being reported/captured to the OS.

+Alejandro Cordova +juan Ojeda +Andrea Balzarotti +Meneses Augusto  actually, this wallpaper isn't bright enough to trigger automatic wingpanel's adaptation, i did it manually by customizing apps.css in elementary theme folder.
find this part
/*******
* Panel *
******/
then change

.panel.translucent {
background-color: transparent; <<-- if you want color change to
.panel.translucent {
background-color: alpha(#fff, 0.4);

...

.composited-indicator > GtkRevealer {
color: # <<-- to your own liking.

about the dropbox, diodon and other 3rd party apps indicator, just put your icons in this folder

/home/[you]/.local/share/icons/elementary/22x22/apps/

most of them will use the icon as indicator's icon, the rest maybe need different way.

Does Freya still have support?
Does it have end of life programmed?

+Stuart Langridge there are very few things that would be elementary specific and potential security vulnerabilities; we make heavy use of upstream libraries whenever possible. That said, no, elementary code will typically not receive updates in Freya.

Now, if there was a security vulnerability reported and it was not extraordinarily difficult to patch for Freya, we might consider doing so. But our team is not large enough to support multiple versions simultaneously.

Hey,

I need a little help from all you feed-addicts out there. I'm planning on adding a little screen to fill the library with interesting feeds after choosing the local-rss-backend. This way the user will not have to stare at an empty library and go on the web to hunt for feeds after installing FeedReader.

The list is a very simple json document, and can be found on github:
https://github.com/jangernert/FeedReader/blob/master/plugins/backend/local/recommendedFeeds.json
I know I could have used OPML, but json was way less work for me :P

I'm happy about all kinds of pull-requests. What are feeds that everyone should know about?
Doesn't matter what category they belong to (as long as it isn't too niche). Food, sports, cars, lifestyle, entertainment, whatever ;)

I like this community a lot. Sadly I'm uninstalling eOS today, there are so many unavailable apps that I need.
I'll keep following the updates.

+Javier Bastardo Yep. I had a dual-system. The reality of it? I just had to reboot to Windows to actually do / create / work on something that's why I'm mentioning that so many apps are missing for me.

Wine and other virtualization solutions just doesn't cut it.
