Here is how
oma-welcome is currently.
We need a few fixes to get it updated to OMLx4.0 new major release and in the mean time we may want to change some of the suggested displayed apps.
Here is how

OMLx 4.0 Alpha1 candidate ISO passed QA check and released
This is the third major release, codenamed Einsteinium, under the OpenMandriva Association! Over the course of the year past we’ve tried to evolve the way you use your desktop. Here are some of the things we’ve done for OpenMandriva Lx 3.0:
This is the fourth major release, codenamed Nitrogen, under the OpenMandriva Association. Over the course of the year past we have tried to evolve the way you use your desktop. Here are some of the things we have done for OpenMandriva Lx 4.0:
- OpenMandriva Control Center
What to do with it?
Guess is to be deleted
- Add Media: Is there any command that could be run to replace Add Media? postedit: (or is it useful at all?)
- Remove Unused Packages: Is there any command that could be run to replace Remove Unused Packages?
- OpenMandriva Control Center: What to do with it?
- Install additional applications with rpmdrake: any replacement?
- Applications/Internet: replace QupZilla with Falkon
- Applications/Multimedia: remove ROSA Media Player (not available anymore)
- Mailing list is obsolete
- To check if informations are correct, in particular
It uses Qt5 WebEngine, and bigbashview
This is wikefied so everyone can edit.
Starting a list of changes/suggestions:
Just need to be sure is accurate and up to date.
drakconf references need to be removed and replaced with manatools.
rpmdrake removed and replaced with dnfdragora
I would remove references to ABF, most users won’t know or care what that is all about
don’t know if panel about EFI boot is still needed?
Update list in “Fresh Packages”
Add media needs change to dnf
Remove Unused Packages needs either removal or replacement
Update of OpenMandriva needs changing to dnf
OpenMandriva Control Center to link to updates OM-CC by @bero
that’s as far as I have gotten
These will need all the links to install updated
Also maybe what packages are listed needs updating as well?
We could use some user input on what applications should be includes don’t you think?
Something, need to check further
just check and be sure is accurate and up to date
What the heck is a systemtap? And where is it, I haven’t found in application menu yet?
And there is a fot that should be a for.
If we can’t find it in application launcher I would suggest it not be there.
So is this meant to be a replacement for omv-bug-report.log? Or an additional tool?
If it is OM-Welcome>Fresh Packages list it seems like it should be in Application Launcher.
I have the feeling that it works in CLI (aka command line interface, for windows-ish ppl )
SystemTap provides a simple command line interface and scripting language for
writing instrumentation for a live running kernel. We are publishing samples,
as well as enlarging the internal “tapset” script library to aid reuse and
abstraction. We also plan to support probing userspace applications. We are
investigating interfacing Systemtap with similar tools such as Frysk,
Oprofile and LTT.
I think that we could (or should) replace
Also, is that Choqok app still available/maintained/packaged/used ?
choqok (Oct 8, 2016)
Also, not sure how to edit this sentence properly:
Click on the menus below to configure your OpenMandriva Lx 4.0 network drivers, software medium, video drivers, desktop theme, icons, printer drivers, remove unused packages etc.
“software medium”, “video drivers” and “remove unused packages” should go away I guess.
Or we can add both. get-skype still should work fine and still is in development for linux.
Choqok still works in Cooker but I agree. It should be removed from this list. Last update was long time ago and I dont think that many people want to use (mostly) Twitter app. If anyone want, always can install it via dnf install choqok.
Proof of working choqok: https://imgur.com/a/R66wm05
BTW. If I can, I would suggest removing:
Xtreme Download Manager - is outdated but stillinstallable but broken. You can’t launch it. So remove it or someone should update/fix it.
Maybe “Click on the menus below to update your system, configure network, printer, desktop theme, icons or OpenMandriva Control Center for more.”
I am pretty satisfied so far.
Waiting for @bero, or another willing fellow, to commit the changes.
I just got to Moscow and still have some stuff to prepare, probably won’t get around to it before I’m back (Tuesday night). Would be great if someone stepped in before.
