Title: Linux Lite 2.6 Final Released
Post by: Jerry on September 01, 2015, 12:04:28 AM
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.

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.

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

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.

Problem with left SuperKey (WinKey) not fixed in Installer Desktop (I am write about this in 2.6Beta). After installation left SuperKey & LL Menu works fine.

Post by: bfb on September 01, 2015, 03:56:18 AM
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

Hi Jerry,

I already have "systemback" and "Disks" installed on 2.4


Will this create an issue on a 2.4 > 2.6 upgrade..??


Thanks...

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?

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.

If the developers don't care, would you (or they) be willing to put user names with real names?  I know who you are but I don't know who the rest are (even though I've seen some of their real names before).  Credit shouldn't just go to anonymous names.  :)

Painless upgrade from 2.4 to 2.6 on the Dell XT2 Touchscreen Laptop. Adding Linux Lite Control Center to taskbar was a trivial thing for me.

1. Right click on icon or panel  and select properties/panel properties.
2. 3 buttons up from the bottom "add new item" > left click on it.
3. Top empty box type in "Lite Control Center"

Accept the default fill in stuff even if you do not recognize it . Done. Easy Peasy.
If you screw it up. You can remove it using the above steps again and instead of "add new item" you can use the "remove" button instead after highlighting what you want to remove.

Code: [Select]
$ cat /etc/issue
Linux Lite 2.6 LTS \n \l

Code: [Select]
$ inxi -M
Machine:   System: Dell product: Latitude XT2
           Mobo: Dell model: 0HJ48R Bios: Dell v: A01 date: 05/07/2009

Next is the 4.2 kernel upgrade experiment.

I'll be updating tonight  ;)
I've been running 2.6 beta on 1 system for about a week and 2.4 on another system for close to a year (since 2.2).
Great OS!!

On a side note...
I'm still new-ish to Linux and not sure if this was something in Beta or not, I haven't attempted to reproduce in 2.4, but... Last night I was messing with the wireless (typically this box is wired) and Unchecked the "Enable Wireless" option of the network manager. Since then the option to enable has gone away completely (Its not a laptop, FN+F2 isn't an option).
- It may be me but...

After my trip to Austin Texas ans my Linux-Lite laptop wireless failed to connect to my sons wireless router.
Let alone not even see it.

When I got home I installed WICD which is easier for me to trouble shoot and use. YMMV from mine though.

Code: [Select]
$ apt-cache policy wicd
wicd:
  Installed: 1.7.2.4-4.1ubuntu1

        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty/universe i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

my trouble shooter is

Code: [Select]
netstat
Not sure if a update killed network manager for me. I tried re-installing and looking through /etc/resolv.conf.
It was just easier to install WICD and call it a day for me.

It was; as was another donation in appreciation of Jerry's and his team's hard work for this great distro!  8)

Somehow also fixed problem with Thunderbird I had for for a day or so after running Lite Updates and getting 32.2.0. I was not getting a sound when getting new mail even though the preferences were still set for it. Don't understand as usual why it fixed it but glad it did. ::)

Hello,
just starting to play with LL and so far it is impressive. Seems to work almost perfectly on my laptop where many distros failed.

I was trying the new SystemBack tool, but in a live session it doesn't seem to work. The interface buttons are all grey out, the only button available is the "system repair". I was trying to create a live system with my software installed but it doesn't seem possible in live. Did anyone achieve this? I can't install anything on this laptop unfortunately... and i'm running LL 2.6 in 32 bits on a FAT32 usb device in case it helps.
From what I could gather on the internet, it seems that SystemBack is either missing some packages (not sure which) or the kernel is not compatible. Anyone had more luck?

thanks

After reverting to LL2.4 I tried a live version of 2.6 and wi-fi worked ok. A new upgrade to 2.6 was successful so all is wel now. :) Gremlins at play!

Lite Control Centre looks good too.  :)

WOWIE! Love this release already! The new control centre is awesome and easy to navigate. Doing a clean install of 2.6 on my HP netbook.

Great work, everything worked out of the box on all my systems:

Main PC: i7 4970K + GTX 980 Ti. (LL 2.6)
Mobile : W230SS i7 4710MQ + GTX 860M. (LL 2.6)
Media : Acer Aspire 5742G i5 M 460 + GT 420M. (LL 2.6)

Glad to be back using LL, makes installing and updating with software a walk in the park.

I just installed a fresh Linux Lite 2.6 (from the ISOs) on two machines one 32bit one 64bit, I noticed that the Firewall Configuration GUI (gufw) was not installed by default on the 64bit version. Was this left out of the 64bit version on purpose, or was it just an oversight?

An oversight, thanks Xorcist. Added for 2.8 :)

If you've upgraded to LL 2.6, don't forget to change your Forum profile to 2.6 :)

I'm glad I found this forum to finally, and this Linux Lite 2.6 is running like a dream of this five-year-old Fujitsu E8420 laptop. Good work has been done.

My fedora laptop died, but to repay me for fixxing two computers, I was given a desktop computer. It doesn't have enough RAM for Gnome. So I installed Linux lite 2.6, and it has been doing good so far.

I have a question that doesn't appear to have been addressed in these forums.  I'm still on ver. 2.4 and my list of "packages have been kept back" just keeps growing longer.

Before I upgrade to 2.6, should I run "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" (as shown below) and then reply with "Y" (when prompted as to whether I want to continue) in order to upgrade the packages that have been kept back?  Or should I perform the upgrade to 2.6 first and see which, if any packages are still "kept back" afterwards? Thanks.

Code: [Select]
:~$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

To jbecker,

As seen on page one of this thread, all you have to do is the following:

Upgrading:

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.

I do dist-upgrade on LL all the time, because Lite Updater won't let me update kernel and some packages from PPAs (like graphics drivers)... No problems so far.

Just keep in mind folks that we recommend against dist-upgrade, and this is stated in the Help Manual. Because we have clearly stated this, we will not give Support if you bork your system, especially when you have gone against what we recommend. This wastes Support time. OFC if someone wants to give you support even after running this command, it's a free world :) We view running dist-upgrade as playing russian-roulette in LL.

Just upgraded from Linux Lite 2.4 to 2.6 with no problem at all. Took about 10 minutes. Great job on a great system. I have been a user of Linux Lite for about a year now. Of all the distros I have tried, I really like LL! Thanks again for such an awesome system.  Stephen  :) :) :)
