Jump to: navigation, search

Various things that reference get-e.org (various aur packages, etc) should be listed as 'outdated' and alternatives shown. As I haven't been paying attention for a month (and thus missed the closing of get-e.org) I missed this; had I not caught that it was closing TODAY I'd be really confused.

Unfortunately I am leaving for a trip in the morning (should be sleeping now) and thus I can't do this immediately... Lastebil 20:38, 13 August 2008 (EDT)

Check This paragraphs

there are three paragraphs for one workaround to use hal into E17 environment.

E17#The state of modules and gadgets in e17

E17#What is the Places module

E17#A solution or workaround for "Places"

It is poorly writen and i think should be merged into a single paragraph. Veleno 06:36, 10 October 2011 (EDT)

Improved a bit. -- Kynikos 07:41, 11 October 2011 (EDT)
I am an Italian user, I hope that my words do not seem to be offensive. That said, for example in Section E17#A solution or workaround for "Places" smiley faces and words (Yay!) are not appropriate for a wiki. I have not corrected because they are not a native English speaker. sorry Veleno 09:56, 11 October 2011 (EDT)
There's nothing offensive in your words :D You're right, I've removed the informal expressions, but the section remains poorly written and formatted.
However, just to make it clear, all constructive contributions are welcome, even if poorly written ;) -- Kynikos 16:20, 12 October 2011 (EDT)
I re-read what I typed in the middle of the night, and I agree with you both that it was poorly written. So I just went back and tried to improve it. I could not get it into one paragraph, though. As a matter of fact, I felt like it needed even more explanation. Hope that helps. -- vsingleton 07:41, 11 October 2011 (EDT)
I rewrited the paragraph. E17#A_workaround_that_gets_Places_working I deleted the redundant procedures (the procedures should be acknowledged). I add the template style. for me it is visually better. Now check the translation, and if it is correct you can delete this thread. Veleno 12:06, 12 November 2011 (EST)
Adapted installation instructions to Help:Style#AUR packages.
Before deleting a discussion it should be closed by striking its heading with <s> tags, see Help:Style#Discussion pages.

Great job, now this paragraphs reflecting a good write.Veleno 13:34, 13 November 2011 (EST)

HAL no longer required

Isn't the section describing the "Places" module relying on HAL out of date?


I use the "Places" module without HAL and haven't had any issues. Also, in my opinion, the section about Modules and Gadgets should not be under troubleshooting. I don't really know where else it would go but maybe making it a separate main heading would be the best idea. I could add some information about a few of the different modules and their uses.

I just wanted to see what everyone thought before I went ahead changing/adding that. Also, I'd like to confirm that no one else has issues with "Places" still.
