Lubuntu 16.04.1 User Manual

BOOK DESCRIPTIONTHIS BOOK IS NOT:This is not a book about migrating from Windows to Linux. This is not a book about Linux commands, but some Linux commands are covered. This is not a "Dummies" book for new Linux users.This book does not describe, in detail, how to use the simple Lubuntu User Interface.This is not a screenshot book, but there are a few screenshots.This is not a comprehensive book about Linux, Linux Commands or even Lubuntu. There is no such book. This is a "Getting Started" book.This book does not describe how to use individual Linux application software, such as the LibreOffice Writer application, for example.This is a book about installing, upgrading, maintaining, using and customizing Lubuntu. Some, but not all, of the information for different versions of Lubuntu has changed. That is why there is a separate book for different versions of Lubuntu.You could spend hours, days, weeks or months finding the information in this book or you can spend just a few dollars and save at least hours of your time. All of the information you need to get started with Lubuntu very quickly is contained in my book. New Linux users will like this book, but it also contains some valuable information beyond just getting starting with Linux. Book updates, tips & tricks and other relevant information is always on my web site,, which is continually updated with the latest information concerning Ubuntu releases. This guide will show you how to install, configure, use and maintain Lubuntu. Everything the average user needs to know, and more, is covered. You will even be shown how to create your own custom software. Many tips and tricks with regard to customizing Lubuntu are included in this book including how to create software to enable or disable your laptop touchpad, how to remap your Caps Lock key, how to backup and restore your hard drive, and how to use Linux commands. Fixes and workarounds for some known issues are also included in the book. This is a how-to book as opposed to a textbook. I tried to present things that you can easily do with your computer while keeping the explanatory text as brief as possible. More detailed, in depth information may be found for any Linux topic, but my goal is to get users up and running as quickly as possible. The first three chapters of this document (1 to 3) discuss what Lubuntu is, how to download and install Lubuntu, how to use Lubuntu and easy customization of Lubuntu. The next two chapters (4 and 5) cover application software and system administration.Chapters 2 through 3 will show you how to install and use Lubuntu. You may stop at that point and have a usable Linux system. The following chapters (4 and 5) will show you how to update, customize and maintain Lubuntu.
