  • Linux Lite: 1.0.0
Nice work Jerry & the Team.

Installed it to a 32GB USB stick, set it to download updates etc. during the install but it didn't do that for some reason.
Runs fast, should be good on a hard-drive install.
Couple of changes I've discovered so far, I can't reduce the number of recently used entries in Whisker to 0 anymore, 5 is the lowest.
I see it now uses the buttons from whatever theme is in use as backgrounds for the indicator plugin icons, but it still messes with the display of the panel behind that & the date/time plugin.
When copying files & the file operation progress box is shown I can't minimise the folder window to just show the copying progress box, it goes minimised too, only way to have it shown without the window up as well is close the window.
This only happens working on the volume LL3 is installed on, to or from another volume it works as expected, the window can be minimised & the progress box stays up.
Maximised or normal window makes no difference.

Just a few things I've noticed with it that's different to LL2.8.
Some of it I imagine would be XFCE stuff like the panel behind the indicators etc..
The progressbar/box behaviour I didn't see with the beta.

One the whole I think it's pretty impressive  8)

A little off-topic I guess but I think still relevant...sort of...with the install process (Something Else) I had to tell the installer not to reformat my existing system swap (by setting it to 'do not use') even though that was on a different partition to the blank USB I was installing to, in fact I've noticed that several times when doing a manual install of some distros.
If it's missed & the existing swap gets formatted it must set it to swapoff as I find the existing system shows 0 swap when that system is running again & it has to be set to swapon via G-Parted so swap gets used again.
That's something I've seen with LL & Mint installers & I think I saw it with Debian installer too when I was playing around with it a while ago.

New to LL here but because  i have to do many settings, (and i do not know how) i will stay with 2.8
3.0 looking good and running well .The 2.8 will do the work for me even if i do not get any more updates .i run it only for ham-radio programs any way.
To the team i will say this.
Keep up the good work
thanks

LL 3.0 64 bit.

This must be the quickest and easiest installation I have ever done of any Linux distribution.

The installation was just flawless.

Congrats and thanks to Jerry and the Team for a fantastic job.

Thank you Jocklad :)

Kernels - All previous, current and future Linux Lite Kernels will be available throughout Series 2 & 3, 4 and so on...

First of all I have to say a big thank you for all the work that has gone in to LL over the years. I've found it to be stable and utterly reliable.

Trying out various 16.04 distros over the past few months has shown up a major block for using linux into the future on my HP laptop. All kernels after 3.19 send my cpu fan into 100% speed all the time no matter what the linux version. So seeing the line about previous kernels being available I just wanted to double check that it does mean just that - so I should be able to install a 3.13 kernel on LL 3.0? If so then that makes me a very happy bunny :)

One question though - Loving the new release by the way! Volti I didn't really care for though. I think the stock volume control is perfect.

Where is the Lite Control Center? Granted I never really used it much, but it did tell some computer spec info that I did find useful, and easily telling whether the distro was 32-bit or 64-bit, besides going into the terminal with "uname -a" command, something I needed to identify when the Google Chrome 32-bit PPA removal came about when helping out one of my personal friends. It apparently isn't included anymore... That was a great tool, please bring it back. I'm probably the 3rd or 4th person who's mentioned this, so this tool is definitely in "high demand" for your user base...

There is one theme inconsistency I have noticed. Very far from a major issue:

On the "Indicator Plug-in" icons on the XFCE panel, the icons are really rather dark, and haven't found a way to make the icons have white colors for easy glancing. Besides nit-picking about this little annoyance, the Arc theme looks beautiful, and the new Wallpapers are lovely. Funny how you included the new Lamborghini Huracan sports car in one of them!  Definitely a night and day difference compared to the previous series, and reminds me of Manjaro XFCE a little with a blue theme instead of green. Theme integration in this release is very good as or almost as good as OpenSUSE KDE custom theming.

I don't want to be overly critical or nit-picky with my opinions because I do realize that LL is a project done in spare time and commitment. We are all human beings, we all make mistakes, miss, forget and overlook things. Little annoyances like the one mentioned above are easily fixed with a Google (or DuckDuckGo if you prefer) search and tutorial rundown.

Overall Great Release! Love what Jerry and the LL team put out for the community. What an amazing creation this has come to be in 4 years later!

I thought LL2.0 was 3.13 - doesn't matter - can't boot LL 3.0 anyway, just hangs then drops to login prompt on tty1
