Happy testing Loki Beta! Please report bugs at https://launchpad.net/elementary under the correct project. Google Plus is not a bug tracker.

Please don't mention + Daniel Fore, + Cassidy James, or + Cody Garver in your posts.

I know all of you want to get your problems fixed and questions answered, but it's not always the best idea to tag any of the developers  in your post. 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 don't know the answer to your problem. Daniel might be the founder, but I don't think he would know that much about the inner working of Gala, the window manager.
4. It's annoying.

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

+Henrique Arthur Probably. But it would have make sense if they dealt with those problems for 0.4

Someone knows how to make an icon that uses keyboard shortucts? I want to make a .sh file for the keyboard ctrl+shift+space.

That is what I was trying but no luck finding the command that launches the search.

But finally got what I wanted, install xte, with that I can simulate keyboard presses via command. The rest for the Icon was easy.

How can I share a link to a specific doc file (let's say "Gtk.Window") without that the one using the link being redirected to the main page? This happens both with "valadoc.org" and "valadate.org:8000".

(http://www.valadate.org:8000/#!api=gtk+-3.0/Gtk.Window)

Valadoc is currently having some issues with searching & redirecting to the proper pages. This needs to be fixed within valadoc itself. For now use valadate.org:8000 (working search) and wait until main valadoc.org is fixed.

I'm getting this error when I try updating via Software Updater, and all I did was:

-holding a package (libwebkitgtk...) from upgrading via terminal
-opening Software Updater -> resulted partial upgrade error -> ran it
-unholded the mentioned package via terminal, openned Software Updater again -> saw this message in the picture included in the link, which seems that contains distro-upgrade, so refused to run it, but it closes the Software Updater.

can anyone help please?

After updating to the new Harware Enablement Stack from Xenial y got the no cursor after screen off bug:

How many of you got this bug? The only option for a fix is to wait?

I just want to say a big thanks to all the devs working on Elementary, you're making such a huge work and I also noticed that lately you've been fixing lots of annoying bugs.
Even if I don't have the chance to use Loki (still have a 32 bit system) I'm noticing all the progresses in launchpad. That's awesome, this OS is getting really mature. Thank you all.

If I install Loki Beta 2 now, will I get the bugfixes that are completed on the RC1 Launchpad page?

Not all of them. While a lot of the fixes would be installed automatically, there are some that can not be patched with updated packages.

As always, we recommend you do a clean install of the stable released version when it becomes available.

Elementary OS Freya has an applet to change the time format to the 12- or 24-hour clock in System Settings >> Date & Time. These settings are otherwise set by your Language and Region. Changing this via the GUI doesn't act...

Great things come to those who wait...and these are done by a series of small things brought together. :)

Keep up the good work! B)

Documentation  - 
 
I would like to write some tutorials on Vala / elementary app development. What do you think should I start with? You can find the average "Hello World" and Gtk.Window examples all over the internet, but I think Vala lacks some in-depth documentation (stuff like CMake, Contractor, GStreamer). Any suggestions?

How about stuff like libsoup and glib-json? Maybe mix that with GTK to teach async

This worked for me to get this app running, but I'm interested in feedback from others more knowledgeable about this procedure? Are there better ways to get to the same result? I don't want to be putting out faulty or potentially dangerous info!!

Hi :), big supported here <3.

Is there approximate release date of RC1 at least in terms of weeks? I am asking because it seems that RC1 should be just around the corner and I would like to install it, but it if it will take take let say a month, I want to install some other distro meanwhile. I dont want to install some distro just to reinstall it few days later for Loki ;)

PS: Will you be able to update from RC to stable without reinstalling?

I've been watching that too. The only thing I can think of is that the number can increase if new bugs come in from the beta testers.
