QUESTIONS: Is it still possible to use the Ubuntu One cloud back-up service (I already set up) with Lubuntu? (I know Ubunu One is being dscontinued in a few months.)
I am presently dual booting Windows XP and Ubuntu. Is a clean install of Lubuntu easy, will it leave my Windows XP installation intact?
(I still need the Windows XP for a while longer, but I do not use it for the internet. I know it will not be supported after tomorrow).
Is there any kind of Lubuntu manual? One thing I really like about Ubuntu is that "?" application that allows you to ask questions and learn to use Ubuntu. Is there anything I can use to replace this "?" app for Lubuntu?

Burn a Live DVD 0f 13.10 and install just like you did ubuntu. Durning the install you will be given the option to overwrite the ubuntu install with lubuntu. Which will give you a dual boot xp/lubuntu set up.
I do not use UbuntuOne, someone else will have to answer that.
Lubuntu fits to a CD.
From a live boot you can delete the old Ubuntu partitions. After that it all works automatically.
OK, thanks to everybody. I downloaded Lubuntu 13.10 via torrent today, checked the MD5Sum and the SHA256 Sum, and installed it in place of Ubuntu 12.04LTS. If I stop having the bugs reported in the original post, I'll mark the thread as [SOLVED]. So far it looks pretty good.
I've visited the Ubuntu One website and in Lubuntu I can download individual files, but not folders. The individual file download capability may be enough for me.
I will post the questions below about Lubuntu in a new post, but if somebody wants to answer them, please do.
QUESTIONS: I can't find Libre Office in the Lubuntu Software center. When I used Lubuntu a few weeks ago, Libre Office apps were available in the Lubuntu Software Center for download. I wonder what happened?
I am presently downloading the latest version of Firefox 28 as a .tar.bz2 file. The latest Firefox available on the Download center is 24. I guess I have to manually install Firefox 28 using Terminal. Any tips on how to do it?

Have you updated since you installed?QUESTIONS: I can't find Libre Office in the Lubuntu Software center. When I used Lubuntu a few weeks ago, Libre Office apps were available in the Lubuntu Software Center for download. I wonder what happened?
Code:sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
Actually I don't even find the lubuntu software centre works. When searched for packages available it only showed installed packages. Maybe I am missing something but I would just use synaptic.
Edited: Read somewhere that lsc would work properly if run an upgrade after installation of lubuntu, and then reinstall lsc. But never tried it.

In addition to the commands above I recommendandCode:sudo apt-get dist-upgrade.Code:sudo apt-get autoremove
Only download stuff as a very last resort. Firefox is updated automatically, and Libreoffice comes with the commandCode:sudo apt-get install libreoffice
And I'd like to install Libre Office Writer and Impress using the Terminal as Morgaes suggests. But I really don't want everything in Libre Office, just Writer and Impress for now.
QUESTION(S): The COMMAND "sudo apt-get install libreoffice" will install everything in Libre Office, won't it? I think there is even a Libre Office CAD/CAM program. Is there a way to just install the select Office components (Writer & Impress) using Terminal?
Where do you guys get these Terminal commands from?
Running "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" (as suggesed by Morgaes) released a flurry of activity. But "sudo apt-get autoremove" came back with just:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Thanks to everybody for their comments and help. I think the install of Lubuntu did the trick. It seems to be faster than Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and does not suffer from the bugs in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I am enthusiastic and will continue to be a missionary for Ubuntu/Lubuntu and the support given by all of you and tell others here (where I live in the US) about it.
