Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 2 "Preview 2"



The second Alpha of Lubuntu is now 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."

There is not so much changes between Alpha 1 and Alpha 2, don't expect
big surprises. The next release (Alpha 3), which will be released after
the Feature Freeze, will be more interesting :)

Features :
- LXDE packages up-to-date
- 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 2 to next
release is not guaranteed).

Known bugs:
- Alpha 2 may not boot on karmic Virtualbox, you should upgrade
virtualbox to avoid this problem.

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

Please follow the testing process described on this page :
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/SubTeams/TestingSubTeam . You can also
report problems and bugs relative to the tests on this page.
