Minor observation


When shutting down the LiveCD there doesn't appear to be any instruction to press any key to complete shutdown after disk ejected. If amended it might save newbs such as myself sitting there wondering what's (not) happening.

Minor point, I still like this distro.

I agree amending would be helpful. I too encountered the same after installing a distro.

What if anything do you propose for the amending part?

I could be wrong Maikl; but I (think) that only a Linux Distribution Developer or a Software Developer would be the one to solve this issue as it (the message to shutdown) would have to be written within the Live Cd's programming.

Next time I see the Software Developer I'm acquainted with I'll ask him about this.

All I can suggest is that you run a Linux Mint LiveCD then shut it down, you'll see an instruction to remove the DVD and then press Enter, this completes the shutdown.

Not an issue for experienced Linux users but if I hadn't previously tried Linux Mint I'd still be sat there waiting for shutdown to end.

Hopefully it's only a minor issue to amend it.

Keep up the good work with Limux Deepin!

Not sure if we should write to The Linux Foundation; Canonical or Linux Mint-?
Maybe others within this forum could advise on this-

About Linux Deepin I had a good conversation with one of their editors and I must say she was very good at what she does for Linux Deepin.
