    "could not start boot splash could not access shared library"
    The Lubuntu boot splash screen is there but doesn't show up on the live session. It IS present after installation to the hard drive. Some things don't show up perfectly in live session testing but they will once its installed. So my advice is to ignore that error. It has no effect on running the desktop in a live session. Hope this helps.

    LXLE Paradigm Release Candidates now available.

    32 and 64 bit version. Lots of changes. Small iso, run lighter than before, four different desktops to choice from. This is probably the build that gets released in a week or so.

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/lxle...easeCandidate/

    Feedback is appreciated before release. Thanks

    Rehauled from top to bottom, including games, apps, system files, desktop layouts, updated walls, etc etc.

    Will get screenshots up later, tired now. If you decide to download it, post a few screenshots if you can.

    Thumbs up Re: LXLE - Lubuntu Extra Life Extension

    Downloaded and committed it to the metal

    VERY nice indeed.

    Once again loads of stuff i'd normally have to go and get myself, lots of fun games, and as ever it's very light on resources at idle. Great little Conky as well, that's a nice touch. Kinda steampunk

    I've decided to default to the Gnome 2 look (set the lower one to autohide), and have ditched the side 'dock' (i guess that means it will be missing from all the other layouts? I think you hinted at that).

    So, everything seems to work just fine here* for me, great work Sir!

    Cool and no it won't go missing from all the desktops only the one you choose to remove it from. Hope you discovered the hide show conky button.

    Ronnie, you could remove catfish if you modify your distro to make SpaceFM the default file manager - its light and has a built-in search feature. Or upgrade to PCManFM 1.10 which also has it but it did not work for me and I installed SpaceFM where search did work - about the only drawback is it does not yet support GTK3 but in all other respects, its the perfect file manager for Lubuntu.

    LXLE Paradigm goes final with 12.04.3 update.

    Paradigm is a tentative attempt to create four different desktop paradigms for users to choose from once they start up their aging computers when using LXLE. Just because a computer may be aging shouldn't hinder your work flow.

    LXLE paradigm is not an attempt to completely mimic other desktops features and functions but to provide a desktop scheme that is familiar to all different types of computer users whether your comfortable with Linux, Mac or Windows operating systems.

    LXLE default programs are easy to understand once you understand the philosophy. 'If your going to save system resources with a light system, then you should spend those resources on more capable programs."
