Finally the day arrived. New ISOs for every model of architecture are available. I updated the downloads section where you can grab the new Lubuntu Saucy Salamander with all these improvements (among others not so visible):
- LightDM using a simple GTK+ greeter
- Firefox as the new web browser for Lubuntu 13.10
- new version of PCManFM and libfm including a built-in search utility
- artwork improvements, new wallpapers, community wallpapers and icons
- removed Catfish since PCManFM has its own search utility
- fixed a very old bug causing GNOME MPlayer to crash with some CPUs
- several fixes for the GPicView image viewer
Go to downloads section and get it for free now!
Thanks to Corbin Davenport for these amazing countdown clocks. There’s one for Lubuntu flavour and another for Ubuntu. For Lubuntu:

…as said in Old English, “mass days of all saints”. We’re getting close to the Samhain (Calam Gaeaf). And it’s a tradition to make up the default Lubuntu wallpaper to match these days. So, there’s nothing more to say. Frag it and terrify yourself with so many Jack-o-Lanterns that you couldn’t possibly sleep.
And here’s the traditional countdown clock. If you want to use it, just put this code in your website:

And it will look like this:
The default icon theme, Box, has reached another completion hit, version 0.41 is one of the most all-covered and complete icon themes over there. More than 2800 objects (icons and symlinks, apps, devices, filetypes, actions, etc) make this a suitable theme for any Linux based OS.
I’d like to thank Julien Lavergne for collecting every upload we made and creating a handy deb package, and my partner at the Lubuntu Artwork Team, Alexander Andjelkovich, without you this theme wouldn’t exist.If you’re going to download and install Lubuntu 13.10 you’ll have it by default (check release schedule). If not, you can check it out here, and choose your architecture here. Next step? Maybe a full Unity compliant Box theme 😉
