Release Announcement

Linux Lite 4.2 Final is now available for download and installation.

This release has a number of minor changes. Think of it as 'refinement' and not a 'major upgrade'. There are some new wallpapers thanks to @whateverthing and some minor tweaks here and there.







Lite Software - Redshift

Redshift has been added to Lite Software. Redshift adjusts the color temperature according to the position of the sun. A different color temperature is set during night and daytime. During twilight and early morning, the color temperature transitions smoothly from night to daytime temperature to allow your eyes to slowly adapt. At night the color temperature should be set to match the lamps in your room. This is typically a low temperature at around 3000K-4000K (default is 3700K). During the day, the color temperature should match the light from outside, typically around 5500K-6500K (default is 5500K). The light has a higher temperature on an overcast day.







Lite Welcome

Minor changes.

Live USB/DVD/VirtualBox/Vmware:

Login is automatic, no credentials are required. The image can be written to a 2gb or larger USB stick, or a writable DVD. Alternatively, you can use the dd command: sudo dd if=linux-lite-4.2-64bit.iso of=/dev/sdx bs=4M where 'x' is the letter of your usb stick. In linux to find out the letter of your usb stick, open a terminal and type: df -h It is usually listed as 'media' or similar. Please see the built in Help Manual if you require a more detailed explanation of this procedure.

Yumi, Multiboot and other multi-boot applications are not supported. A good, simple point and click USB ISO burner is https://etcher.io/
If the screen locks during Live mode, type linux into the user box and click on the Login button (no password required)

Login to the live desktop is automatic.

The first thing you MUST do after a fresh install of Linux Lite is run Menu, Favorites, Install Updates.


Thank you :)

Jerry and the team.

Did you update LL4.0 first? If so try a reboot and then a upgrade.

I did extensive testing pre-release, with no issues in the end.
Plus, I just tested on a laptop I have here with updates that were 46 days old! As you can see from the pictures, no problems upgrading. People on social media sites reporting smooth upgrading too.



Reboot.









At this stage, I'm putting it down to human input error at your end :)
