User manual project

Hello,

I'm new to the forum, but I've been using Q4OS for some time after distro hopping like many others. As I've come to appreciate all the goodness of this operating system, I decided I wanted to give back to community in some way. First on my list is compiling the already excellent documentation found on the Q4OS web site into a user manual similar to what Linux Mint and Manjaro have done and making it available in pdf format for easy downloading. This will be done via a Github repo (which I will be setting up shortly) to allow collaboration. My plan is to create the master document in odt format which can then be exported as a pdf. The manual, based on the existing documentation, will likely be sparse initially, but I would to like to expand it with screenshots, tips, and tutorials from the community over time. I will post more in this space when I have more information to share. In the meantime, thanks to the Q4OS team for their hard work!

Re: User manual project

I've created a repo on Github for the Q4OS User Manual and uploaded a 0.1 version in odt format. At this stage, it's essentially a compilation of the existing Q4OS documentation with an added table of contents and minimal editing. I will continue editing the text for grammar, etc. first then start adding screen shots where they are applicable. I would also like to have some sort of cover art like the Manjaro guide but that can come later.Anyone wishing to contribute, please let me know!

Re: User manual project

Great job, thanks. There are a few obsolete parts, for example regarding to KDE4 desktop, in our documentation, we will edit and fix them as soon as possible.

Re: User manual project

Thanks! I've been working on minor grammar edits here and there. What sections aside from alternative desktops were changed? I'll get those updated as well.

Re: User manual project

Various changes on Github including:
- Replaced image on title page with revised Q4OS logo.
- Updated several links to point to sections within document instead of web URLs.
- Added an initial pdf version.

I attached the pdf to this post for those that just want to check things out without going to Github.
