Lubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin is finaly here.

lubuntu 12.04Lubuntu  is a lightweight Linux operating system based on Ubuntu but using the LXDE desktop environment in place of Ubuntu's Unity shell and GNOME desktop. LXDE is touted as being "lighter, less resource hungry and more energy-efficient".

Lubuntu received official recognition as a formal member of the Ubuntu family on 11 May 2011, commencing with Lubuntu 11.10, which was released on 13 October 2011

Like Xubuntu, Lubuntu is intended to be a low-system-requirement, low-RAM environment for netbooks, mobile devices and older PCs - but tests show it can use half as much RAM as Xubuntu, making it an attractive choice for installing on older hardware being refurbished for charitable distribution.

The name Lubuntu is a portmanteau of LXDE and Ubuntu.LXDE stands for Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment, while the word Ubuntu means "humanity towards others" in the Zulu and Xhosa languages.

Features:

  • Based on the lightweight LXDE desktop environment
  • Pcmanfm 0.9.10, a fast and lightweight files manager using gio/gvfs
  • Openbox, the fast and extensible, default windows-manager of LXDE
  • Lightdm, using the simple GTK greeter
  • Chromium, the open-source version of Google Chrome
  • ...and, of course, based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Improvements since Lubuntu 11.10
  • A new software-center, optimized to be lightweight, for easy installation and removal of applications from your system
  • New theme is used, and each previous themes are available in the repositories
  • Lightdm is used as the display manager with the default gtk greeter
  • Blueman is now used instead of gnome-bluetooth for managing bluetooth devices
  • A lot of bug fixes, especially on the panel and the file manager

New Lubuntu icon theme

A new icon theme is going to land soon: Lubuntu Box. At this moment only a few icons and the design guide are being developed to create the main look line. Of course, the icon theme will (and always) be free, released under GPL license, and it will fit another desktop environments, such as Gnome3 or Unity. Stay tuned!

Downloads

Desktop CD

The desktop CD allows you to try Lubuntu without changing your computer at all, and at your option to install it permanently later. This type of CD is what most people will want to use. You will need at least 384MiB of RAM to install from this CD.

  • PC (Intel x86) desktop CD
    For almost all PCs. This includes most machines with Intel/AMD/etc type processors and almost all computers that run Microsoft Windows, as well as newer Apple Macintosh systems based on Intel processors. Choose this if you are at all unsure.
  • 64-bit PC (AMD64) desktop CD
    Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead.
  • 64-bit Mac (AMD64) desktop CD
    Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead. This image is adjusted to work properly on Mac systems.

Alternate install CD

The alternate install CD allows you to perform certain specialist installations of Lubuntu. It provides for the following situations:

  • setting up automated deployments
  • upgrading from older installations without network access
  • LVM and/or RAID partitioning
  • installs on systems with less than about 384MiB of RAM (although note that low-memory systems may not be able to run a full desktop environment reasonably)
In the event that you encounter a bug using the alternate installer, please file a bug on the debian-installer package. There are four images available, each for a different type of computer:
  • PC (Intel x86) alternate install CD
    For almost all PCs. This includes most machines with Intel/AMD/etc type processors and almost all computers that run Microsoft Windows, as well as newer Apple Macintosh systems based on Intel processors. Choose this if you are at all unsure.
  • 64-bit PC (AMD64) alternate install CD
    Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead.
  • 64-bit Mac (AMD64) alternate install CD
    Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead. This image is adjusted to work properly on Mac systems.
