Latest version

The links below are for the current 17.04 release. It’s better to use the (magnet) link first (auto-verified downloads). Take time to read the Release Notes (being updated). For low-RAM (less than 700 MB) PCs use the Alternate versions (installer screenshots and instructions).

 Note: make sure to verify the integrity (md5sums) of your downloads and that they come from an official source. More info here.

About the architecture:

  • 32-bit version, suitable for almost all PCs. Choose this if unsure.
  • 64-bit version for Intel or AMD computers. You may need a 32-bit ISO, for PCs older than 2007.
  • PowerPC version for Apple Macintosh G3/G4/G5 and IBM OpenPower. LTS only.
  • Mac64 version for Intel Macs, 2006 and beyond. After 14.04, use 64-bit version.

Raspberry Pi 2 & 3 (16.04)

This image was created using the Ubuntu Pi Flavour Maker. We have done what we can to optimise the builds for the Raspberry Pi 2 but microSDHC I/O throughput is a bottleneck so we recommend that you use a Class 6 or Class 10 microSDHC card. More information here.

Version 16.04.2 LTS

Former LTS version. Note: some versions, like PowerPC or Alternate, may be older releases.

Version 14.04.5 LTS

Former LTS version, 14.04.5 for Desktop edition and 14.04.1 for Alternate and Mac installers.

Box is the default official theme shipped with Lubuntu. Box covers both for controls and icons. The theme has been tested in several environments, like LXDE, Unity, Openbox, MATE, XFCE, Plasma / Qt and Gnome.

Maintenance: The controls theme is periodically updated using Ubuntu’s Light themes base, and missing icons will be added to keep a good app ecosystem. Additional content may be available for those apps that don’t follow XDG compliant themeing (like Filezilla). Upgrades will be pushed to the Launchpad branch and this downloads page.


Theme repository

Use this option if you’re running any Ubuntu flavour or a Debian based system. Open a Terminal and paste these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lubuntu-art/daily
sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade

Theme archives

Use this option if you’re running any Linux distribution. Unpack these archives, placing theme in ~/.themes and icons in the ~/.icons folder. Filezilla skin must be extracted to /usr/share/filezilla/resources folder with root permissions.


Notes: Read this if you need help installing themes. Regarding Older versions, archive has been discontinued. If you want to download previous wallpapers of older Lubuntu releases, please head to our Deviantart archive.
