by admin ·
On the UDS 2011, the last questions were clarified Lubuntu to make it an officially supported Ubuntu derivative.
It’s official: Lubuntu is an official Ubuntu derivative. In a UDS session in Budapest, and Colin Watson Mark Shuttleworth clarified the details with project member Julien Lavergne. So the Ubuntu packages end up in the Universe repository.
There is still no ISO and no packages on the official Ubuntu site, but Lavergne will inform the development mailing list of the Ubuntu project, when the application is in the official repositories and there is an installable image. 11:10 Lubuntu is to be the first officially supported version of the distribution.
Julien Lavergne of Lubuntu looking forward to the use of Canonical infrastructure.
Lavergne was very pleased with the decision. He and his colleagues hope to gain not only greater visibility of the distribution, but also want to use the build capacities of Canonical.
Lubuntu is mainly due to very weak-computers like the Pentium II, which bring only 128 MB of RAM. The LXDE desktop lacks some convenience features, but he does not need much resources. Lubuntu used, among other PCManFM as a file manager, Chromium as a browser and Sylpheed e-mail client.
