    Perhaps this will explain.

    Its uglier than at first thought. I found the AUG16 thread that had the nasty discussion:
    https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/lu...st/010846.html
    follow to "Next" message to see the progress. You'll begin to understand the situation better.
    Don't know who Mario Behling is, but getting new people to find the "real" lubuntu site:
    https://discourse.lubuntu.me/
    will be a plus.

    Just google the name Mario Behling, and you'd find quite a lot of results. He is known for lot of good work around the world, especially FossAsia.

    And, also as;

    "In March 2009, the Lubuntu project was started on Launchpad by Mario Behling, including an early project logo. The project also established an official Ubuntu wiki project page, that includes listings of applications, packages, and components."

    And that surpassed an invitation;


    "
    In February 2009, Mark Shuttleworth invited the LXDE project to become a self-maintained project within the Ubuntu community, with the aim of leading to a dedicated new official Ubuntu derivative to be called Lubuntu."

    I looked at the link you posted from 2009 however over the years many new developments and changes come about and therefore what once was no longer seems to work and changes are made.

    As we already know these days very few users are using computers that run only a single core processor or run less than 4.0 GB of ram.

    I run old computers as far back as 2008 and all of them a run dual core processor and at least 4.0 GB of ram which make them very capable of running LXQT and many other desktops without problems.

    From what I've read LXDE desktop has become outdated which is why LXQT desktop is now being used.

    I'm not a Linux developer or a Linux guru and what I know about Linux is enough to keep me confused.

    I've always liked the simplicity of LXDE and now I like the simplicity of LXQT which had a slight learning curve for me although with the excellent user manual / documentation available was easily conquered.

    Lubuntu 20.04 is different and a lot of users hate new change myself included however I like the challenge of a new adventure.

    Re: Lubuntu just got worse

    I'd like to add a comment about my experience with the move to Lubuntu 20.04 (details in https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2446644).

    The specific problem I've had concerns the export of LibreOffice files to pdf; this is a "known bug" (see https://lubuntu.me/focal-released/). However the work-around suggested in that last link has a tendency to crash LibreOffice; the only satisfactory solution I've found has been to replace qt5 by gtk3 in SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN.

    It's a little worrying that LibreOffice comes bundled with Lubuntu 20.04, but the interoperability of the two seems not to have been tested before release. I suppose one might say that exporting documents to pdf is a minority interest; but I believe that the problem is also present with printing to old-fashioned paper. (I have one sheet which has a well-placed photograph together with a collection of randomly-placed characters, and another sheet which left the printer completely blank despite text appearing on the preview. I didn't investigate further, to avoid wasting too many trees.)

    I have a feeling that this is a case of "it's all right leaving me, so it must be up to you to fix this"!

    (But apart from this, I rather like 20.04 with LXQt.)
