I need a non-PAE version of Lubuntu (to run on a Fit-PC Slim w/ an AMD GX3 LX800 CPU). I believe 12.04 is the latest version that is non-PAE, but the link on Lubuntu/PreviousReleases - Community Help Wiki doesn't work. Does anyone know where the archived versions of the distro have gone?
However, How can I install on a non-PAE CPU? (error "Kernel requires features not present on the CPU: PAE") suggests that even 12.04 requires PAE already, meaning you'd have to go even further back to e.g. 10.04.
Also please note that the package repositories got moved to the old-releases server as well, which makes you unable to download and install any packages at first. Have a look at How to install software or upgrade from an old unsupported release? for that.
The LXDE desktop was first made available for Ubuntu in October 2008, with the release of Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex. These early versions of Lubuntu, including 8.10, 9.04 and 9.10, were not available as separate ISO image downloads, and could only be installed on Ubuntu as separate lubuntu-desktop packages from the Ubuntu repositories. LXDE can also be retroactively installed in earlier Ubuntu versions.
The minimum system requirements for Lubuntu 10.10 were described by Mario Behling as "comparable to Pentium II or Celeron systems with a 128 MB RAM configuration, which may yield a slow yet usable system with lubuntu." Chief developer Julien Lavergne stated that the minimum RAM to install Lubuntu 10.10 is 256 MB.
While Lubuntu 11.04 had not completed the process for official status as a member of the Ubuntu family, Mario Behling stated: "The next goals of the project are clear. Apart from constantly improving the distribution, the lubuntu project aims to become an official flavour of Ubuntu."Mark Shuttleworth remarked to the Lubuntu developers upon the release of 11.04:
Lubuntu 12.04 was released on 26 April 2012. Planning for this release took place at the Ubuntu Developer Summit held in early November 2011. Changes planned at that time for the release included the use of LightDM as the X display manager and of Blueman instead of gnome-bluetooth for managing bluetooth devices.
The Lubuntu Software Center was added with this release to provide a more user-friendly graphical interface for managing applications. Synaptic package manager is still installed by default and allows users to manage all packages in the system. GDebi allows the installation of downloaded .deb packages.
Lubuntu 12.04 was released with the Linux v3.2.14 Linux kernel and also introduced a large number of bug fixes, particularly in the LX panel and in the PCManFM file manager. The Ubuntu Backports repository was enabled by default, meaning backport packages were not installed by default, but once installed were automatically upgraded to newer versions.
Our long-term support (LTS) releases are supported for five years - ideal for organisations undertaking large deployments. To install Ubuntu, you'll need to create an installation CD or USB stick once your download is complete.
Long term release of Ubuntu with version number 12.04 and code name Precise Pangolin has been released a few days ago. It brings the evolution of Canonicals Unity desktop environment as well as Linux Kernel version 3.2 and fresh set of applications in official repository. At the beginning of this article I must point out that at the time Ubuntu 12.04 had been released all machines I use were powered by Gnome 2 operating systems like Ubuntu 10.04 or CentOS 6.2. The reason for this conservative approach is that I choose my software based on the level of productivity it allows me to reach. From my experience using current Linux desktop environments like Unity and Gnome 3 could be considered as productivity suicide. In this article I will review latest offering from Canonical in the form of Ubuntu 12.04 with Unity, Xubuntu 12.04 with Xfce and Lubuntu 12.04 with LXDE. I'll leave KDE Ubuntu flavor Kubuntu out of this review because although feature packed it is usually too buggy to be taken seriously.
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS named Precise Pangolin has been released few days ago. I did some testing and I can't really say I'm disappointed because that happened a while ago when Canonical released first Unity powered Ubuntu version. But lets be fair and ignore Unity for a moment and focus on something else. Latest Ubuntu is full of bugs. For example if you had an idea to do some coding using NetBeans Java IDE on your shiny new Ubuntu 12.04 LTS think again. To be honest you can try to do some coding if you don't mind not seeing your menu bar due to bug where Java applications use wrong menu bar font color. Also the latest version of Ubuntu light themes exposes an old bug where Java applications loose menu border. This bug first appeared with default Gnome 2 GTK+ theme Clearlooks, if you need workaround for that one here it is. It isn't clear is this Java Swing API bug or Ubuntu light themes bug but fortunately there is a workaround. In this article I will present PPA with modified version of Ubuntu light-themes package that works around this issue.
So far Lubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin turned out really great. But there's always that one thing, my VLC media player looks strange and doesn't fit in with the rest of my operating system. Apparently Qt4 apps in Lubuntu doesn't pick up correct GTK theme. To fix this issue you just need to install libgnome2-common package and restart your Qt4 application.
Edit: The same thing applies to Xfce desktop from Xubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin. I've forgot to point out that you need to logout/login into your desktop environment to notice changes.
Apache OpenOffice, commonly known as OpenOffice.org, OOo or OpenOffice, is an open-source office productivity software suite whose main components are for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, and databases. OpenOffice is available for a number of different computer operating systems, is distributed as free software and is written using its own GUI toolkit. It supports the ISO/IEC standard OpenDocument Format (ODF) for data interchange as its default file format, as well as Microsoft Office formats among others. As of June 2011, OpenOffice.org supports over 120 languages. As free software, users are free to download, modify, use and distribute OpenOffice.org. Platforms supported by OO.o include Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris, BSD, OpenVMS, OS/2 and IRIX. The current primary development platforms are Microsoft Windows, Linux and Solaris.
On 28 September 2010, key members of the OpenOffice.org Project formed a new group called The Document Foundation, and made available a rebranded fork of OpenOffice.org, provisionally named LibreOffice. The Foundation stated that it will coordinate and oversee the development of LibreOffice. Due to the requirement of fully open sourced office suite, it was dropped from the major Linux distribution and it is replaced by LibreOffice; still you can install manually by downloading it on your computer. Here is the small guide for installing OpenOffice on Ubuntu 12.04 / 11.10 / 11.04.
This article covers a version of Ubuntu that is no longer supported. If you are currently operating a server running Ubuntu 12.04, we highly recommend upgrading or migrating to a supported version of Ubuntu:
This section describes the recommended way to downloadand make a fresh install of LinuxCNC. There are alsoAlternate Install Methods for theadventurous. If you have an existing install that you want to upgrade,go to the Updating LinuxCNC section instead.

lubuntu is a fast and lightweight operating system with a clean and easy-to-use user interface. It is a Linux system, that uses the minimal desktop LXDE, and a selection of light applications. Because of this, Lubuntu has very low hardware requirements.
Our tests show that until version 14.10 lubuntu can be installed on a Pentium II or Celeron system with 256 MB RAM to get a usable system. With 512 MB of RAM, you do not need to worry much. The recommended "lubuntu Desktop" from version 15.04 onwards is 1 GB of RAM. For Internet services like Facebook, Youtube, and Google Docs about 1 GB RAM are needed. For local programs like Libre Office and simple browsing habits 512 MB RAM are usually sufficient. For PCs with less resources, there are alternative lubuntu installers on the download pages, that provide a basic running system for those systems.
As you may know, Jdownloader is a free and open-source download manager written in Java, which allows the automatic downloading of files and split files from one-click hosting sites such as RapidShare.
LXLE basiert auf Lubuntu 12.04, bringt aber eine komplettere Software-Auswahl mit sich. Das Ziel der Distribution ist es laut Entwickler, einen komplette Desktop-Umgebung für ältere Rechner zur Verfügung zu stellen. Auf neueren Computern sollte die 64-Bit-Version gut schnell laufen. Minimalisten sollter eher die Finger davon lassen, weil LXLE sehr viele Pakete bereits vorinstalliert mit sich bringt. Diese sind meiner Meinung nach aber mit Sorgfalt gewählt und es ist kein total unnötiger Schnickschnack vorhanden. 2b1af7f3a8
