Thanks to SilverLion for his work. The easiest way to explain how to fix a bug, for those who didn’t read the Release Notes and want to know what’s happening with thir internet connections. A Screencast is worth a thounsand words!
Just another update. Box now reaches 0.46 inside Lubuntu Trusty Tahr artwork package or as a standalone for your preferred Linux distro.Lots of more apps and other things were added. If you want touse it just add the Daily PPA to your sources and voilá, or download directly from the Artwork section.
It’s known that system admin tools for LXQt were lacking.
This is no longer true. A new component lxqt-admin landed int our git repo. Please see the screenshots. 🙂 These are “desktop-independent” pure Qt tools based on system-tool-backends.
lxqt-admin-time: Tool to configure date and time.
lxqt-admin-user: Tool to manage users and groups.
We know that LXQt is not good enough, but it will getting better and better. Long live LXQt, the classic desktop!

As many of you already know, Lubuntu 14.04 is an LTS release. That means we have a lot of time to fix bugs and upload newer packages. Julien Lavergne has recently posted a new PPA for that “maintenance” purpose. If you want to upgrade all your system, including the artwork ;), open a terminal and paste these:
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:lubuntu-dev/staging
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
You’ll notice that artwork will change, nm-applet is fixed now (bye to some wi-fi connections problems) and solved the autostart issue. Have fun!
The guys from LXQT desktop (formerly Razor-QT) are finishing all details to make it usable and stable. The new desktop is able to do common tasks, using the file manager and configure the look and feel (even I’ve had some troubles to enable Box theme). But this promises to be a great desktop, and fast. One polished the RAM consumption (see LXDE blog for details) the DE will be ready for everyday’s use.
I doesn’t look so bad, does it? What do you think about adding a QT session to Lubuntu?
