Welcome Screen

Asked by Abraham Vinod


First of all, thanks for an awesome software.

I have found that welcome screen is not supported for Lifeograph 0.8.1.
Is it a bug or done purposefully? If it is the latter, please consider the option
back as I would love to have a welcome screen on lifeograph. The man pages
mention the existence of the command but it is not explained under the options
so I am guessing it has been disabled. Is there any config file I can change to
achieve this?

Once again, thanks for the awesome program.

Welcome screen is the one with the quote from Lao Tzu and it is only displayed once after the install. Do you want that dialog to be displayed at every start?

Please note that even after a new install welcome screen may not be displayed if a Lifeograph config file is present in the configuration directory.

When I meant the welcome screen, I meant the screen with login. Earlier, there used to be a facility for providing your own background image for the login screen. But, now I can't do it in lifeograph 0.8. If I can do it by modifying the configuration file, what should I modify? I am guessing the config file is ~/.config/lifeograph/lifeo.conf.

Also, can I run lifeograph 0.10 in ubuntu 12.04? I would love to try the image-embedding diary entries.

Background picture feature was removed in 0.8. From 0.9 on, the background picture became irrelevant anyway since the new diary list covers much of the window.

You can run Lifeograph 0.10 on Ubuntu 12.04. You can use my PPA for this purpose: https://launchpad.net/~dmxe/+archive/ppa

By the way, let me clarify one point: In 0.10, image files still cannot be embedded into the diary file. It just shows links to image files as thumbnails within the text editor. Embedding will be implemented later.
