lubuntu lucid Beta 2 release

Julien Lavergne has released Lubuntu Lucid Beta 2. Don’t forget that it’s build with Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) which is still in Beta state of development, so same warnings :

“Pre-releases of Lucid are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage.  They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.”

We passed Feature Freeze, that mean most of the features should now be available. It’s now time for testing and fixing bugs.

== New stuff since Beta 1 ==
* Auto-login at install time
* Support encrypted home directory
* Up-to-date lxdm, libfm and pcmanfm2

== Specific Lubuntu changes ==
Lubuntu still contains modifications not available in the official repository, you can see them in the Lubuntu PPA [1] :
– New pcmanfm2 and libfm (LP: #523433)
– lubuntu-default-settings with pcmanfm2 support
– Fix for blurry shutdown-icon from elementary-icons (LP: #527345)
– Autologin support in ubiquity (LP: #546445)
– New lxdm

== Testing needed ==
I’ll appreciate some feedbacks about the followings recent additions :
– pcmanfm2, the new filemanager, is still in beta state. Please report bugs on
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/SubTeams/TestingSubTeam/pcmanfm2Testing
– The new lxdm may fixed some issue regarding the keyring and PAM support, but it needs more tests.

== Known bugs ==
* If you test on a USB, the first screen will freeze for a moment when you click on “Try Lubuntu …”. Just wait, it will continue as normal.
* See also https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/SubTeams/TestingSubTeam

== Reporting bugs ==
Bug reported during testing : https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/SubTeams/TestingSubTeam

If you want to create a bootable usb system, please use the usb creator directly on Ubuntu. Please follow the testing process described on this page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/SubTeams/TestingSubTeam . You can also report problems and bugs relative to the tests on this page.

    Hello. I usually don’t test Beta versions but decided that Lubuntu was worth the exception and I was not wrong. It promises to be one of the best *buntu releases ever, even being unofficial for now. Fastest general response and fastest/most stable wireless in town, the addition of a thrash bin to PCManFM and Chromium as the default browser… Absolutely brilliant. Definitely a keeper. Though, I have a doubt. I’m not being able to find the source of the 2.6.32-19-generic kernel to install the nVIDIA drivers, whether on the repositories or on the kernel site. Nor am I being able to install another kernel version (with visible source). Any workaround this situation in Beta 2 or just wait for the final version?
    Once again, keep up with the great job and please accept my best wishes,
    Lucho
    P.S.: My apologies for saying it here but didn’t considered this newbie question to be worth an opening of a thread in launchpad.
