The Alpha 2 of Lubuntu 15.10 is now released. Check out all about it at the wiki.
Hi, testing of the second Alpha of Lubuntu 15.10, codename Wily Werewolf is now taking place. Please do help test. Details of how to test can be found at the Testing wiki. Feedback appreciated.
Again, some changes in the GTK libraries made our theme looking wrong. This is a fix applied to GK3 apps with list boxes being greyed out making them totally unreadable (bug #1464349). See the differences before and after:
Finally, and thanks to Xubuntu guys, the notifications in the Lubuntu desktop will look properly. This is an old bug (see #1362555), affecting multiple themes, crossing and assigning incorrect values to some GTK widgets. But now they’re fixed. If you want to fix it in your system, you must add the Lubuntu Artwork PPA to your system (instructions here). This is how it looks now:
Lubuntu 15.10 will be released in october with the codename Wily Werewolf, as Mark Shuttleworth announced today. A lot of changes will come with version, unfortunately, until the preliminary meeting, I can’t explain the details. Anyway, you all know where are we heading to, don’t you? 😉
The nice icon is an artwork from HopStarter.
As expected, the next version of Lubuntu is here. It’s known as a bug release, as we’re preparing the next generation Qt based desktop. Lots of bugs have been fixed, and there’re many improvements. Artwork has been redesigned too, with a smoother and unified overall look and feel.
Remmarkable changes are:
- General bug fix release as we prepare for LXQt
- Many LXDE components have been updated with bug fix releases
- An update of the artwork (more icons, theme update, more compatibilities …)
Since the arrival of Gnome3 and its Client Side Decorations widgets, some GTK3 apps look weird. That’s why we’ve had another re-merge with Light Themes and adding some specific Lubuntu fixes. These includes Geary full (theme and icons) support, CSD menus, CSD gradients, borders and miscellaneous colours.

New version that starts a new challenge for Box: supporting not only more environments, but known apps too. There’re a lot uncovered applications that need their own icons existing in our theme. Thanks to Đurađ Radojičić, the Lubuntu Artwork Team is getting now a reinforcement to make it possible.
