In the podcast this week...

Joao gushes over Lubuntu, AG thinks RAID is a backup, and a bit of talk about piracy.


Joao's Thing He Did

(I'll do a standalone post for these with screenshots and whatnot, but here's the outline)

The Lubuntu Mod

Install the whisker menu and indicator plugin (it pulls down the XFCE panel as a dependency):
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin xfce4-indicator-plugin

The config file to mess with LXDE is in /home/yourUser/.config/lxsession/Lubuntu/desktop.conf

Find the line that says...


and change it to


Restart and you should have the XFCE menu installed and you can configure from there.

For Numix and Arc, add the Numix repository, download the Numix icon set and Numix theme, and download the arc theme.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:numix/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install arc-theme numix-blue-gtk-theme numix-icon-theme-circle
