I upgraded from ubuntu 10.04 to 12.04 and installed lxde desktop long ago. I do not remember exactly how I installed it and I have never received security or any other updates of lxde (but I do receive lots of ubuntu updates which I receive regularly). The command "apt-cache policy lxde" shows:
However if I right click on the panel and choose panel option, a new window opens informing that I am using LXpanel 0.5.8. I am confused here also; exactly which version am I using currently, 0.5.0 or 0.5.8?lxde:
*** 0.5.0-4ubuntu3 0
500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/universe i386 Packages
My question is, how should I ensure that I receive security and other necessary updates of lxde? (Please note I do not remember whether I installed lxde from ubuntu repository or from lxde homepage) Will I have to uninstall existing version of lxde and do a reinstallation?
