Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 1 "Preview"



I just generated the first real ISO for Lubuntu Lucid, available for
testing. Don't forget that it's build with Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) which is
still in Alpha state of development, so same warnings :

"Pre-releases of Lucid are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable
system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even
frequent breakage.  They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers
and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs."

Features :
- LXDE packages up-to-date [1]
- The new pcmanfm for testing (type "pcmanfm2" in a terminal)
- Many wallpapers and start icons from lxde forum, gnome-look or Leszek
Lesner, to be able to switch easily and to test the result
- First customization with a splash screen from Leszek Lesner
- Installable with ubiquity (but upgrade from this Alpha 1 to next
release is not guaranteed)

The ISO is called "Preview", because it's build with new features which
will be part of the final release, and to encourage early testing. All
this components are not yet part of the official repositories (work in

Also, if you want to propose a new application for the default
installation, please test its behavior in this live-cd.

If you want to create a bootable usb system, please use the usb creator
directly on Ubuntu.  

Please report any problem you have with it on this list or directly to
me. Exception for pcmanfm2, it doesn't have all the features pcmanfm
have, so no need to report it's incomplete :)

Lubuntu. Some packages are not yet in official repositories, but it's
just a question of time.
