That's a python coding problem, you should file a bug if one doesn't already exists.

Hello Com i have trouble with the graphical Installation. I can create no encrypted LVM on a USB disk with 14.04. The LVM is installed but I can make no partitions for root, home and swap it. Please help me ☺.

Is that XP? No... wait... LibreOffice? And look close at that "start" button. A penguin instead of the Windows symbol? A fun, retro skin I found while trying to salvage on old laptop I've had sitting in the closet since grad school.

Here is the "how-to" link:  http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/make-lubuntu-look-like-windows-xp/

I have installed Lubuntu last night, I am coming from Kubuntu.
I have been distro hopping for a couple of months now. Just got tired of windows.
 Any way I have installed the testing version of Krita, but it does not show up in the Menu, but I can execute it from the Run menu.
 Is there a way I can add it to the menu under Graphics?

The Krita desktop file might only show in KDE.  You might need to edit usr/shar/applications/krita.desktop for all users or a per user copy in ~/.local/share/applications/krita.desktop and make sure it doesn't say onlyshowin KDE.

Just happened to me.  Using 15.04 on two different computers.  Oh well....the second PC is still partitioned correctly.

Another reason to check the md5sum as it is different for 32 and 64 bit.  Also one way to check could be uname -a from the live session as well. Or you could switch to a tty and run uname -a in alternate installer.

Hiyas folks, as Lenny 'spreads' his wings, there is now a subreddit account at reddit.com/r/Lubuntu for those fans as well :)

Anybody have any suggestions for a decent weather applet that would reside in the app tray for Lubuntu?  I haven't found one that seems to work yet.

About this community

The objective of the Lubuntu project is to create a variant of Ubuntu that is lighter, less resource hungry and more energy-efficient by using lightweight applications and LXDE, The Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment, as its default GUI. Lubuntu is targeted at PC and laptop users running on low-spec hardware that, in most cases, just don't have enough resources for all the bells and whistles of the "full-featured" mainstream distributions. Members of the team take care of LXDE and other packages that are part of Lubuntu. Lubuntu received official recognition as a formal member of the Ubuntu family, commencing with Lubuntu 11.10.

A graphical howto for installing Lubuntu on older Windows XP machines. I realize it's kind of redundant to place it here, since you're all fans, already. However, if you like recommending Lubuntu to others and don't like holding their hands through installing it so much, then I invite you to use my article as a guide.

I'm a Linux newbie
I installed Lubuntu 14.04.1 last week.
It works fine! Very good job.
 Where can I write some of my opinions about how next releases should be for me?

Hi Paul
Why on the Ubuntu forum and not directly on the Lubuntu forum?
Have a good wind!

I installed Dropbox on Ubuntu 14.10 and do nothing. Do I have to install something extra to work ?.

After install you have to run the dropbox app once to set everything up, you know login/password. After that everything is pretty much automagic.

Updated Lubuntu and Google Chrome (beta) today.  On starting Chrome it will create a new window and appears to freeze up.  Anyone else experiencing this with Chrome (beta) on Lubuntu?

I think Lubuntu 14.10 is messed up for some PCs; I installed it and tried to boot it and it flashed a few times and then displayed a flashing hyphen on a black screen.

I then tried installing Lubuntu 14.04 and it worked perfectly. I haven't used Linux much at all but I just wanted to report this.

Hi!
How to activate in Lubuntu (LXkeymap/setxkbmap) hidden Russian variant layout "ruu" - Russian (with Ukrainian-Belorussian layout)?
http://wiki.opennet.ru/RUU
In "/usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/ru" it definetely exists, I've added lines to "/usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst" & "base.xml", but this little f*ker is still not added to list of available layouts.
What am I doing wrong? Or what I still need to do?

I'm also having problems with phonetic Russian keyboard. I tried to remap keys by editing symbols/ru but it still uses the old phonetic keyboard.

Our Alpha1 of 15.04 has been released yesterday! Please head over to http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/releases/vivid/alpha-1/ to help us find bugs. We can use every help we can get!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask Walter Lapchynski  (our head of QA)
Select an image. Lubuntu is distributed on two types of images described below. Desktop image. The desktop image allows you to try Lubuntu without changing your computer at all, and at your option to install it permanently later. This type of image is what most people will want to use.

I installed Lubuntu 14:10.

I would need to run synergy before login. I followed several guides on the internet but have not worked.

Many thanks in advance
