Lubuntu 12.04 has not been supported for 6 months. It reached End Of Life in October of last year. I am not sure if that has anything to do with your problem but I would recommend that you download and install Lubuntu 14.04 which is the newest version.

Any system that no more receives security updates is vulnerable to security risks: be it windows, ubuntu or any other operating system or even an application. So yes, since Lubuntu 12.04 was not an LTS and is no more supported, it is vulnerable to security risks.

You probably just set the wrong keyboard layout for your location during the installation. I don't think the missing numpad has anything to do with it. For example, I live in the Netherlands but we use the United States keyboard layout. There is a Dutch keyboard layout as well, which is different (obviously), but I don't know what it's used for. Selecting ...

Partition your drive. Just know that Lubuntu won't recognize Windows drives. Like user2548592 said, it may just be a better idea to install Ubuntu and get Lxde Desktop using apt-get. This can be accomplished by running sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop.

Unfortunatly, your lubuntu disk dosn't recognize your windows 7 partitions. Try clicking somthing else and give lubuntu some space. Hope it helps. BTW, I suggest you use the regular ubuntu instead. It may recognize your Windows 7 installation. After your done installing you can get lxde desktop through apt-get.

Latest Flash version is 13, while the last linux version that works with Firefox is 11.2. To have latest Flash, the most simple solution is installing Google Chrome which includes Flash version 13.

You could take a look at the additional drivers page, if you search additional drivers in unity. (Sorry, did not notice you were using Lubuntu, just search for additional drivers.) There you will come across the different drivers that may be used, which came in handy for me because Ubuntu did not use any driver for my wifi at all. For me it was just a simple ...

You can add that function back to PcManFm in Lubuntu 14.04 using Templates. For an example, look for "Using New Document Templates" in http://madebits.com/blog/comments.php?y=14&m=03&entry=entry140317-141947

You will also need to correctly partition your drive so that you can dual, triple, or quadruple boot your computer. I recommend you use the tool gparted live to partition your drive. Karel did a good job answering about the driver question.

You should be able to use sysctl configuration to disable IPv6. I don't have bluetooth configured, but there may be parameters for it as well. Try sysctl -a to get a list of parameters. This is the contents of my /etc/sysctl.d/80-disable-ipv6.conf. I have IPv6 enabled, so the settinges are commented out. # 80-disable-ipv6.conf ...

Yes, you can dual boot Windows XP and Lubuntu 14.04 or triple boot Windows XP, Lubuntu 14.04 and Arch Linux on an HP Mini 110-1013TU. If you want to install Arch Linux visit the Arch Linux Beginners Guide to get an idea of how hard it is to install Arch Linux.

One of the easiest method is to use Ubuntu Tweaks scripts, which you can select directly from a drop-down in Nautilus. Very handy. First install, Ubuntu Tweaks: http://ubuntu-tweak.com/ Then open it and go to the Admins > Scripts, then select/drag the "Create Launcher..." script from right to left pane. From then on, in Nautilus, you can right-click on a ...

Simply put: that repository doesn't contain bitcoin-qt. I think the default client for Linux is the QT client so you just need: sudo apt-get install bitcoin Additionally, the 32bit version of this is currently failing to build. Talk to to repo maintainer to get an idea of the problem.

I believe that the answer to your question will also help me solve mine... I am a linux newbie too. I discovered Lubuntu does not have a "Start up Applications" in the menu.

Addressing the distraction first In the dialog between 'mercmanager2' and 'OrangeTux' there seems to be some miscommunication. I'm not sure I understand the confusion clearly, but it looks to me like 'mercmanager2' is confusing the wifi access point login with a website login. Network Manager does indeed remember access point credentials. For a single ...

You could move the hard drive to another laptop or computer to install then put the hard drive back into the original laptop. Admittedly a less than perfect option but it will work. I keep a couple of old hard drives with Lubuntu on them for testing any computers I pick up and because of the way Linux/Unix loads drivers, they usually boot without problem on ...

The package you are looking for is elementary-icon-theme. You can find it in synaptic package manager or just install it straight from the terminal. sudo apt-get install elementary-icon-theme (They happen to be my preferred icons in Lubuntu too).

Please note: You can't (or are not supported to) upgrade from 12.10 to 13.10, or from 12.10 to 14.04 LTS. Anything could break, or produce subtle errors you do not notice initially. What you have attempted (assuming you gave accurate details) is definitely NOT recommended. There is no certainty that your fix (suggested here) addresses all issues. ...

Thought I'd post this as a self answered question as it may affect others. I found a simple fix for this particular problem on another forum.

After you downloaded Lubuntu 14.04 did you perform an MD5Sum? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM The hashes have to match and perhaps yours don't. If they do not, download the ISO again.

You are on the right track. Create ~/.local/share/file-manager/actions. In that folder, create root.desktop (not pcman_root.desktop or anything else).

Executable files (binaries) are usually located in /bin, /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin. Usually you can find the path of a program's main executable by using which chromium-browser, where chromium-browser is the package you are looking for. I don't use Chromium myself, but as seen here Chromium's executable path is located at /usr/bin/chromium-browser. ...

Answered by Aron Xu on launchpad (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fcitx/+bug/1309841) Lubuntu has no compositing window manager by default, that's why openbox didn't know how to deal with transparency.

The easiest way to install Lubuntu on any USB pendrive is to boot your Lubuntu Live CD/DVD, enter the live session, and use the Installer icon present on the desktop.

It is possible, you need to boot the Live USB with the forcepae boot option and then add this option to your boot options in GRUB in the installed system to make the change permanent.

If you have an extra partition, you could "burn" the installer to that partition and set it as the active partition. Then reboot and boot from it. You may also have to resort to a bit of trickery if you need to create a separate partition: resize the filesystem and its containing partition. I've had some various scenarios myself where I had neither USB boot, ...
