Fundamental flaw in bug reporting system
I would understand a steep learning curve but this is a catch 22 overhang.
I am a complete newbie. The install went great and I have my command
line. Then I spend hours trying to find info on loading a GUI and the
closest I get is GNOME support telling me to "Click on the session
icon" but all I have is a command line. I decide that this could be
a documentation bug or feature request and I try to submit a bug
report but your system bounces it for poor info or structure. It
looks like it will take me hours to figure out how to properly format
a bug report so I will not try further.
The fundamental problem is that a newbie lacks the understanding of
the system or the patience that is needed to submit a bug
report. Any bugs that stop newbies from using and learning the
system go unreported and the system retains any flaws that exclude new users.
My system is going back into storage for now.
(I also had trouble with the GNOME bug system. I could not find a
classification for my request/bug report and the "Unclassified"
option just told me all reports are classified. I could of course
not find a classification for that bug either. Just so you know that
either you are not alone or it is just my imagination.)
