    Lubuntu: what's the real download site? .me or .net?

    There are two main Lubuntu sites that offer .ISO downloads: lubuntu.me and lubuntu.net.

    So which is the correct one?
    Until now, I've used lubuntu.me and am entertaining doubts. The .ISO files from there exhibit strange behaviour.

    Can someone bring light into this, please.

    Thank You.

    lubuntu.me is the correct one to use.

    lubuntu.me is the official site according to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu#Official_links

    You can check for yourself which one is official at https://ubuntu.com/#download (spoiler alert: it's the .me)

    The .ISO files from there exhibit strange behaviour.
    Please elaborate about the "strange behavior".

    I'm bit afraid to, because I've had a thread blocked on this subject due to repetitiveness.

    The strange behaviour relates to fonts, this thread is one: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2442361

    I went a step further and booted from a (lubuntu.me) live DVD and opened LibreOffice Writer. Only Asian fonts, sigh.
    So the problem is in the .ISO image, not my installation. For my live boot: language=default (English), keyboard=default (USA).

    The Moderator suggested that I contact the "Lubuntu Team". I'm not quite sure how to, but have posted this issue on https://discourse.lubuntu.me
    I've no idea whether this is the right approach.

    Oh, if it's about that again, please don't.

    Like I said, I was hesitant about this. I really don't want to be a bore.

    Still, is discourse.lubuntu.me the right way or how?

    Yes, discourse.lubuntu.me seems to be the right place to air your grievances about Lubuntu having support for alphabets other than Latin (actually Etruscan/Roman) right from the start.

    @CelticWarrior:
    Thank You. Your sarcasm and condescension has been noted.
    That a Lubuntu installation has irrelevant fonts, but no useful fonts, is apparently normal to you.
    I'll take care of my "grievances" myself, don't worry.
    Consumer feedback to improve a product is seemingly also unwanted.

    Cheers.

    I don't have it currently installed but I recently tried it both in a live session and also as a trial/experiment in a very old laptop.
    Everything in the desktop environment was in Latin alphabet, yours isn't? That means it comes with Latin fonts apt for said alphabet. Does it come with fonts for other alphabets as well? Probably, didn't check, but I assume it has and that's great. You can uninstall anything you don't need and install as many other fonts you want so I don't see a problem in including fonts for alphabets other than Latin.

    Now, "sarcasm and condescension"? Well, sarcasm perhaps - sometimes sarcasm is preferable to a direct confrontation of values that have no place in a modern society - but condescension? I think you don't know the meaning of that word...

    And "consumer feedback" Stephan Molineux style is surely unwanted.
