Release Announcement

Linux Lite 2.6 Final is now available for download. This release cycle has seen a number of improvements and additions to Linux Lite. With the introduction of the Linux Lite Control Center, we aim to provide one central location for everything that you need to configure your computer. What's new - Systemback, a system restore and creation tool. Disks, an easy to use partition, hard drive and SSD manager. A new Dark Theme. Updates to some of our Lite applications. As well as the usual latest versions of - Firefox 40.0.3, LibreOffice 5.0.1.2, Thunderbird 38.2.0

Changelog:
Firefox 40.0.3
LibreOffice 5.0.1.2
Base: 14.04.3
New Wallpapers.
New Lite Welcome.
New root terminal theme.
Updated Help Manual.
Added Linux Lite Control Center - provides one central location for everything you need to configure your computer.
Added Systemback - system back up and OS creation tool.
Added Disks - easy to use partition, hard drive and SSD configurator.
Added Crtl+Alt+Del - brings up logout/restart/shutdown dialogue.
Added VLC Browser Plugin.
Added Dark theme - Zukitwo Dark Reloaded.
Latest WhiskerMenu.

Introducing the Linux Lite Control Center - The Linux Lite Control Center was created with new folk to linux in mind. We wanted to build an application that was one central location for everything that you needed to configure your computer. We recognise that it is sometimes hard to find where things are on a linux based operating system. Lite Control Center aims to address that dilemma. Built much like a web page, Lite Control Center has a menu on the left as categories, and within those categories buttons that launch whichever application you are wanting to use. Lite Control Center can be found on the taskbar next to the terminal icon.

Developer credits - John Jenkins, Jerry Bezencon, Milos Pavlovic, Brian Tomlinson, Josh Erickson

Menu Location - Menu, Settings, Lite Control Center.





Systemback - During the 2.6 development cycle, we asked the community which system restore tool they favoured the most and why. After receiving excellent feedback on social media and the Forums, the community chose Systemback to be included in Linux Lite 2.6. Systemback is extremely versatile. You can easily restore the previous state of your computer, perform system copying, system installation and Live system creation. This is especially useful for those wanting to deploy their custom version of Linux Lite across multiple machines, something the community has been asking for.

Menu Location - Menu, System, Systemback.



New Dark Theme - To apply, go to Menu, Settings, Appearance. Select Zukitwo Dark Reloaded. Then go to Menu, Settings, Window Manager. Select Zukitwo Dark Reloaded. Log out/in to apply the new theme.

64bit ISO - GUFW left out of the 64bit Final, to install it after you have installed Linux Lite 2.6 64bit do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install gufw
Upgrading from 2.0, 2.2, 2.4 using the instructions further down will take care of this.

Note: Upgrading to Linux Lite 2.6 will not add the Lite Control Center to the taskbar. This feature is only available in the final iso.

I fixed mine by doing an 'Install Updates' immediately before 'Lite Upgrade'

I have removed the terminal output since I don't know what code tags are(sorry) and now the upgrade has worked anyway

Did a fresh install of 2.6 but i am unable to change the language. I deleted all languages in language support, added dutch language and clicked apply system wide and restarted the laptop several times but everything remains in English.

@TMG1961 did you follow the Language tutorial step-by-step as set out in the Help Manual? It mentions nothing about deleting languages.

I just did have a look at it and followed the steps in the help manual. And after adding english language and moving dutch to the top all is in dutch now.
Just curious, why doesnt it work with only 1 language..for me dutch.. in the list?

For those on Linux Lite 2.4 do the following:

1) Menu, Favorites, Install Updates.
2) Menu, Settings, Lite Upgrade.
3) Follow the onscreen instructions, reboot when finished.

eeePC 901

Done that but Wi-Fi adapter not detected, dmesg indicates adapter unblocked in BIOS but not present on PCI. Adapter is Ralink Corp RT2790 802.11n

Had to revert to LL2.4 from image taken before upgrade.
