Lots of LX updates

The coder of the entire desktop LXDE, PCMan, was busy these days. He was updating the main core libs and app (pcmanfm / libfm 1.2.0), the image viewer (gpicview 0.2.4) and the appearance config tool (lxappearance 0.5.5), getting improved with bug fixes and new features:

  • pcmanfm: dual pane view
  • pcmanfm: create symlinks
  • lxappearance: fix creating themes
  • lxappearance: compression use xz format
  • gpicview: show / hide toolbar
  • gpicview: fix “fit image”, scrolling, zoom

All this will be upgraded via GIT and Lubuntu will take benefit of this effort. Congratulations, PCMan, for your great work!

  1. Hi friend,

    I don't know if this is the right place but I'm desperate with this problem.

    Two weeks ago I installed Lubuntu 13.10 and I don't know how but yesterday I missed the shutdown button on the bottom right corner. I've been searching in the panel configuration but I didn't find any solution. Could you help me please?

  2. Don't worry. This is not exactly the place for problems but we're here for helping 🙂

    The logout icon at the panel is a special launcher that doesn't exist in applications. To re-create it open the file "~/.config/lxpanel/Lubuntu/panels" and place at the very end this:

    Plugin {
    type = launchbar
    Config {
    Button {

    And don't touch anything more or LXPanel could not start never! Logout and it should be there.
