Re: drop box
the problem is adding on a background task, that is why by default Lubuntu
has auto update turned off.
"to have a programme accepted into lubuntu it must use no disk space,
neither can it use any CPU or RAM when it runs, other than those rules,

I have no problem whatsoever adding instructions to install it, the part it
must NOT break our CPU / RAM requirement. as it is only an option that
people 'may' adopt I see little point in proposing it for inclusion on the
install iso but will be more than happy to add it to the help page and tell
both DragonEyes about it and updating the ubuntu bot database and wiki
