Lubuntu Software Center

Lubuntu right now lacks a Software Center, as his big brother Ubuntu, so Stephen Smally is developing a great app for this. Lubuntu Software Center. You can install and test it executing this on a terminal (the whole line):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lubuntu-desktop/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lubuntu-software-center

Remember its pre-alpha stage. But I highly recommend using it and, please, report any bug you can find. The developers always thank that kind of actions.

  1. Yes 🙂 It's in a very alpha stage, but it works. In the future this will replace Synaptic, because of this one is not very user-friendly. Ubuntu 11.10 has removed Synaptic too. It's "optimized" for Lubuntu because it's designed specially for Lubuntu, but any Ubuntu user can install it.

  2. have installed lxle and run is fine,i want to now install extra software so i go to Lubuntu software centre, click on software i want to install , add to apps basket, it says it has been added but when i click on apps basket the basket is empty yet on top, the apps basket tab say 1 in brackets, and that is as far as it will go

    • LXLE is a 3rd party distro not related to Lubuntu and has its own config files for almost everything. I’m afraid we don’t know how to fix their OS errors. But they have a support page you might see. Sorry.
