Not sure what the problem is. But i am unable to get this working. I downloaded the 64 bit iso file. I used the dd command to write the iso file to a 4gb usb stick. It boots up but i can't get passed the countdown, once it reaches zero it starts at 10 again. I then used multisystem to create a bootable usb drive but then i need to enter a username and password to get into LL.

Hi TMG1961,

Did you successfully run a md5sum check on the downloaded iso file?
In Thunar (file manager) right click on the file and choose "Check MD5SUM".
That would be my first step trouble shooting the issue.

Hope that helps :)

I did the md5sum check and it was correct. No idea why i cant get the bootable usb drive to boot al the way into LL.

Hi TMG1961,

Then I'd suggest using unetbootin to create the bootable USB stick as confirmed working by Jocklad.

I have it running on a USB stick and I thought I had installed it from that, but grub cant open it.
It sees it but I get a message as if grub wasn't intalled on the Lite Partition (I have Xubuntu 16.04 on SD1 and Lite on SD5)

I know lite needs grub to be in its own partition but I tried the work around of trying to move grub to the Lite partition but it wont work

This is the first time I have ever had installation problems with a Lite release

Thanks, installed unetbootin and created the bootable usb stick. It booted into LL3 without a problem.

NOt sure if I missed this discussion, but what happened to the "Lite Control Center"? 
The icon was on the panel as of 2.8.
Will it be returning?

Thanks!
Len

Anyone know where the Lite Control Center went?
Losing that would be a big negative IMO.
Hope to see it return.

Open a terminal(ctrl+alt+t) and enter:
Code: [Select]
lite-controlcenterdoes it eventually appear.??

If YES...

If you click on Menu and start typing Lite... does it show in the list.??
Maybe a Menu entry is missing.??

No, none of that worked.
Either my download is corrupt, or they pulled the plug on the control center, which would be a shame.
Does anyone here have the Control Center working with LL3?

Thanks!

So far I like how it's set up...  Jerry

I would like to suggest Guake as a drop down terminal, kinda confused that you never considered to have this type already built in. Unless it would make the ISO too over sized.

I been using it from 2.4 and never had any issues, also I have it automatically start with LL. Press F12 and bang it drops down and F12 throws it back up. It also keeps what has been written there.

I'm still testing it on my thumb drive or should I install it? If so would a dual boot be ok? I don't have a spare computer to try it.

Just wanted to mention that a drop down terminal seems to be the staple with most Linux users. Also it would take most of the scary aspect of using one away and give it a built in feel.

Anyone else use a drop down terminal?

As for the control center, I'm kinda so so about it not being there, I been trying to use it more but I am also used to using the setting icon like before so to me it's not a big thing. It does look more nice than the setting way. However if it's not available, I'm not that upset.
