Ozone 3

Almost there. The default theme for Lubuntu, Ozone, is near to its final version. Lubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin is getting more and more polished. But if you can’t wait, or you have another version (or a distro with the LXDE environment) feel free to test it. Download here.

Haven’t tried LxFind yet? For those who doesn’t know it, it will be the default file and document search tool or Lubuntu. For trying it (remember, it’s not an ultimate comilation) put this on a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lubuntu-desktop/ppa

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lxfind

 If you already added our PPA just install the package “lxfind”.

Review: Peppermint Two & Leenux

While we’re waiting for the next release of Lubuntu 12.04, the Precise Pangolin, other distros are posting about their goals. One of those is Peppermint OS Two, a Lubuntu based distro oriented to the cloud. So many applications has been removed from the installation process, and gives more Google-ized tasks, like GMail, Google Reader, Docs, etc. making it absolutely necessary to have a good broadband connection to the Internet.

Another one that follows the trendy way of using (L)ubuntu as its core was Leenux, that presents the fifth distro with more editions, Unity, LXDE and the old Ubuntu Netbook interface (from the deceased EasyPeasy). Sorry, no LXDE screenshots yet.

Happy New Year!

Yesterday Lubuntu had a funny way to wish users a Happy New Year 2012: changing the default wallpaper to a sweet message from the Team. If you haven’t updated yet do it and your wallpaper will change (calm down, it’s not forever) and if you’re using a custom one, you can download it here.
Also, try to find the easter egg.
