    Question question about synaptic package manager...

    I opened synaptic and typed: "lubuntu-desktop" in the search bar and it came up with a result!! Now, I'm no uber linux genius, and correct me if I'm wrong (which, most likely I am) that lubutnu hasn't come out yet... so... how can you install it on synaptic?!?! It said that the latest version was .7.1. ?????????

    maybe you can add the repo https://launchpad.net/~lubuntu-desktop/+archive/ppa
    and what version of ubuntu are you using?

    the lubuntu-desktop package is just the desktop system for lubuntu, which is basically an ubuntu installation with the LXDE desktop environment installed.

    Basically, it's just LXDE with a few gnome configuration tools (bluetooth, etc.) and an x-server and GDM.

    In simpler terms, Vrekk had it about right. It's for testing, since it would be inconvenient for existing ubuntu users to reinstall.
