LXScreenhot & LXFind

The great Stefano has been working hard for this updates. The new apps are really simple, efficient and fast, very close to the Lubuntu philosophy. Also, new icons for them were created, using the Lubuntu Box (the forthcoming theme) design guides:

If you want to test them just do this on a terminal (ignore the first line if you already added the additional Lubuntu Desktop PPA) :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lubuntu-desktop/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y lxscreenshot lxfind

Mocking up!

There’s no time for sleeping. Or maybe yes, and dreaming about the perfect interface. So we at Lubuntu Artwork Team are still active, never forget this 🙂 Now thinking about a new icon proposal, a new GTK / Openbox theme and, of course, a new brand official wallpaper for this sweet flavour of Ubuntu. In a few weeks the contest for wallpaper submissions will be open, and we are waiting for your ideas and designs. The Lubuntu Blog will post the Flickr address soon for uploading your creations. The selection will be part of the Lubuntu Community Wallpapers package, and one of them could be yours!

New Lubuntu website

A new website is ready Lubuntu, completely rewritten using the Drupal content management system. The entire web has been redesigned and reorganized to make it easy to download and explore the documentation, as well as other areas. A great work of Mario Behling that ensured to make this possible along with the Precise Pangolin realese.
