Main page is not friendly for new users

Reported by: gsteinmon Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: normal Milestone: OSGeoLive11.0
Component: Documentation Keywords:


Couple of things:

  • I tried to get going with the osgeo live tools and found that the installation instructions to miss specific information for new users. Here is an example of things that hung me up(I work on a map):
    • impove explanation of 7z file and what tools you need to extract this on a mac
    • imptorve information on of how to setup virtualbox and how to connect the vmdk to a new instance
    • improve information about how to install onto usb (UNetbootin)
    • improve information about how to contribute to the code and documentation

I am happy to help write some of this out and add screen shots, but I would need a little help getting started.

3 year passed already since this ticket was opened. @gsteinmon do you think the pages improved enough?
