[Bug 303320] Re: [needs-packaging] lxubuntu-desktop


We really need two lubuntu packages:

1) One that only pulls LXDE core components with the lubuntu themes and

2) A second one that depends on the first and also pulls some standard
applications e.g. browser, gnumeric, abiword, etc.

See the way edubuntu, kubuntu and xubuntu have made separate packages
for themes, core LXDE applications, desktop application e.g. text
editor, spreadsheet, browser, etc.

Status in “lxde-common” package in Ubuntu: Fix Released

Bug description:
Binary package hint: lxde

LXDE is an ultralightweight desktop, lighter than ubuntu and is suitable for pre-P3 computers as well as Apple G3 and G4 series.

We really need to have a comprehensive and self-standing lxubuntu-desktop package which pulls *all* packages necessary for the X-windows backend as well as LXDE desktop together with useful tools such as abiword, gnumeric and kazekahase.

It would be worthwhile to spin off a desktop Live CD, which is *part of the ubuntu proper* rather than a spinoff of a previous Ubuntu version

Here I would also request LXDE to be included into the main repository (I will file a separate bug report)
