The setup wizard needs new screens attached to anticipate future expansion. This page contains my notes on proposed additional screens to the setup wizard:

Accounts

Increasingly, LinuxMCE will connect to more internet based web services. We need a series of screens to be able to enter account information on a per-user basis for each of these services.


This will be split into the following sections, in each section a series of buttons will be shown with a cue to select all the services they use. Selecting a button highlights the service, and subsequent screens configure the accounts for each:

Instant Messaging

  • AIM
  • iChat (yes, know they are the same)
  • Yahoo!
  • MSN
  • XMPP
  • Google Talk (yes, I KNOW they're the fucking same)
  • ICQ

A note, some of the above may seem redundant given their underlying protocol, but if you're thinking that, you're a geek, stop it. This makes it easier for Joe User.

Common Screen

This screen allows for common fields to be entered across multiple services, such as email address and a default password. These will not be used directly, but rather as a way to pre-seed any Email and Address fields on the proceeding pages.

  • Email address
  • Password

Internet Video

  • Google Video
  • Youtube
  • Hulu (???)

Internet Photos

  • Flickr
  • Photostream

etc.

You get the idea.
