Great job Valtam and Devs!
Looks great, booted it up in live mode, and I'm installing it right now.
Excellent release!

Thanks, Valtam. I have installed both software centers via Synaptic before so should still work on 2.0.

1. No problem to install and use the Ubuntu or Lubuntu Software Center via Synaptic.

2. Does " sudo apt-get install unattended-upgrades && sudo dpkg-reconfigure unattended-upgrades " give a gui notifier or just do updates in background or something else?

1. I haven't tried, someone else may know.
2. Updates in the background.

Searched forum but could not find answers to my questions. Sorry if I missed them.

1. Is the Lite Software Center still available or do you just use Synaptic to get the Ubuntu Software Center and/or Lubuntu Software Center?

2. Is there an update available notifier now or do you still just check yourself periodically?



1. The Lite Software Center was dropped due to over commitment and under resourced (manpower)
2. The update notifier is still in development, that particular dev is very busy at the moment. So updates are still done via Menu, Install Updates but you can set up automatic updating quite easily if you want - sudo apt-get install unattended-upgrades && sudo dpkg-reconfigure unattended-upgrades

Cheers.

Hi Valtam. You said earlier this year that it should be possible to use Google Drive after the new release of LL.  Do you have any more information about this?

Have you tried this? http://www.unixmen.com/grive-unofficial-open-source-linux-client-google-drive/

Hello!

You're welcome, Valtam. It is quite satisfying to see this distribution grow in popularity so quickly.

I must say that being featured on Distrowatch and Spatry's continued good reviews have definitely helped in a major way. What's also quite surprising in the Linux world is that an overwhelming percentage of those who try out Linux Lite end up staying with it...

Thanks Rob, couldn't do it without others help and support, from the helpful folk like yourself here on the Forums to coders, documentation writers, it all makes for a fantastic team effort!

Hello!

Congratulations, Valtam. That IS quite an accomplishment - ESPECIALLY considering all the different 'flavors' of Linux out there!

I also noticed you guys are currently riding high in the distrowatch popularity charts.

Wow -- you're right!

Last week Lite was ranked 34.  Today it shows as 26th.  That IS quite a bump up in the rankings!

Last 7 days :)

Hello,
how can I update my existing 1.0.8 system to 2.0, without need for a complete reinstall?

The way we put LL together and the amount of customization we do to things like the Menu, I doubt there will ever be an upgrade path for LL.
