Lubuntu 10.10

Postby mmesantos1 » Sun Sep 12, 2010 9:46 am

Well for the people who love LXDE this version has some new items to be excited about. LXTask and LXApearence, in LXApearence a way to change mouse theme. Here is a quote from Distrowatch:

New LXAppearance from LXDE git (without Openbox integration); the usual updates from Ubuntu; update notifier was added; Xpad was added; Parcellite and pyNeighborhood were removed; LXTask was added to replace Xfce task manager; Evince is now used for reading PDF files; some small games, powered by Ace of Penguins; new theme and slideshow available during installation; LXDE is now HAL-free, Lubuntu still depends on HAL for CD-burner, but by removing it, you can obtain a HAL-free system; a new meta-package (lubuntu-core) is available to install only core packages of Lubuntu; add support for indicator applets on LXPanel...


I am installing now to further test. :)

The new theme looks real nice, especially the toolbars.

I agree Exploder, they are doing a fine job on this one. Installed and running now. Runs very well. :D Installed Nvidia driver and still have Plymouth issue but no big deal. No other issues encountered thus far. :)

DId not do much with the theme, just added different wallpaper. Did not like the default one. :)

Yeah, the default wallpaper is a little plain, your choice looks good though. Have they added the control center yet?
