the Lubuntu Desktop PPA has rewards for the brave

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

Lubuntu users wishing to test out some potential future additions to the lightweight distro should consider adding the Lubuntu Desktop PPA.

The PPA is not required – or even recommended – for casual every day usage but  it does offer those willing to run the risk of encountering potential bugs the opportunity to use native LX-branded applications.

Applications currently in the PPA include: –

  • Lxkeymap: keyboard layout tool
  • Lubuntu-control-center: A central place for settings
  • Lxappareance plugin for openbox settings
  • LxProxy
  • Ubiquity

The PPA also has, on occasion, carried upgrades for Lubuntu-specific components not present in the main Ubuntu repositories.
