Customize your clock

The clock of your panel is a very handy and customizable tool. You can
make it show whatever you want with a few single steps, using codes
called strftime. You don’t need to memorize them all, just use the ones
you need, copy and paste. That easy…

This how this new article of our Tips’n’Tricks collection starts. Have a look!

And remember, if you have another tip or advice, and want it published at Lubuntu Blog, don’t hesitate and send it.

Edit: sorry for not posting this as a blog new.

Skippy-XD PPA

We have found a new PPA for our beloved Skippy-XD tool. If you don’t remember what it is, just have a look at the article (now updated) on this blog. If you want to install this compilation from GIT (another “latest” apps repository) you can do it the easy way, having no more depending on DEB downloads and ensure updates. Just open LXTerminal and execute these two command lines:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:landronimirc/skippy-xd-daily
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install skippy-xd

That’s all. Now if you followed the article guide mentioned you should have a cool Expos√©-like effect on your desktop.

Tips and Tricks

A new section is born, Tips and Tricks, a new page of guides (usually called howtos) for Lubuntu where you’ll find simplified steps to do amazing things. We start with an article about how to bring Expos√© effect to our desktop using either the keyboard or the mouse. In the future this section wil grow with more tricks, so if you made Lubuntu take a fancy, usefull and rare behaviour, please, share with us all. Check out the new section here.

Note: I’d like to thank Mr. Wislr for the idea on the mailing lists, and Ronniew from Ubuntu Forums for his comprenhensive guide.
