21- Here is the most important step. This is how to select the Partitioning Method. The easiest way, is: Guided - Use Entire Disk. Please, understand this is the best way if your HDD is empty and/or you don't need the Data stored on your HDD. You can read the instructions on the below Screenshot:
22- If you decided to do it Manually, this is the Screenshot for that. If you are not familiar with such Partitioning Method, Select "Guided Partitioning" from the list below and press "Enter". More information about Partitioning can be found here.
23- PLEASE, read the note.
To Confirm, Press "Enter".
24- If you are done, review the changes made and select "Finish Partitioning and write changes to Disk" then Press "Enter".
25- The installer now will give you a summary of the changes to your HDD. To confirm, select "Yes" and Press "Enter".
26- Choose "No Automatic Update" unless you know what you are doing.
27- This is the Second Most Important Step. On this Step, you decide what package you want to install/include in your setup. So far, ONLY the core system has been installed. If you want to build your system the way you like and add the package you want, this is a list of what you may need/use. Instructions are below:
Space to Select
Tab to Move
Enter to Activate the selection
** Jump to continue without making any selection will install nothing.
28- Another important step is to choose where to install GRUB (the boot loader). The default selection is "Yes". Please, understand if you carry on with "Yes", this will erase any boot loader current installed in your MBR. So, be careful and you should understand what you are doing - don't make a selection without knowing what is going on. More about GRUB can be found here.
29- Because you have previously selected your time zone and your country where you live, select "No" and carry on.
30- You are done :)
SAME PROCESS for 12.10 and 13.04 :)
After you reboot, you will have CLI Screen if you haven't chosen any DE to install (Ubuntu Desktop, Lubuntu Desktop, Xubuntu Desktop, Kubuntu Desktop).
Type your username that you selected previously during the installation and your password to log in.
Without installing any package from the package list shown previously in step No. 27, and after installing:
Update: For now, me and other users are discussing the project over here on facebook. Also, here on LXDE Forum. Soon, I will setup a new area most likely on Launchpad and offer a Mailing List :) History: This idea has started here Then more about it here
And here, I will explain some simple thoughts and we can discuss that later :)
This system to be based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Mini ISO
This is not a good option for NEW Comers to Linux because it will be a minimal system. Someone came from Windows won't find this interesting.
This is for Current Linux Users.
Have very few packages (File Manager, Browser, others).
It should be lighter than Lubuntu
DE might NOT be LXDE - I am thinking about other alternatives.
Very sad but true. I have officially resigned from Lubuntu Team on 7th of July, 2013. It was about time to take such painful, hard and tough decision. It wasn't easy at all. But, life must go on and one should never give up nor surrender. For two years, full of hard work for very long hours (12 hrs - 16 hrs daily), achieved a lot and done so many things ... this has come to the end of Lubuntu's Page but that is not the end of my journey, that was just the beginning :) Full History is here Now, I'm thinking about one of more of these options. I will keep you posted :)
