I have recently installed lubuntu and want some software to make it run smoothly.Also, after i installed lubuntu, i saw no grub image (it seems bad without image) So, Please tell me how to set grub image

  1. First update your system , so that It will let you install updates.

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
  2. To play MP3 songs you might need some codecs , so

    sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras
  3. Open Ubuntu Software Center and Look for VLC Media Player.

  4. For Having better Battery you can use tlp.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install tlp
  5. To change GRUB background , you can use Grub Customizer

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install grub-customizer
  • The OP is using Lubuntu, so instead of installing ubuntu-restricted-extras, you should install lubuntu-restricted-extras. – Paddy Landau Dec 23 '13 at 17:49
