I am pleased to announce that LXCE 1.5 has been found on my netbook, and it will be uploaded soon to xxcelinux.com!

I am pleased to announce that LXCE 1.0 is now available on our dedicated web hosting!

LXCE 1.0 is a special customized remaster of Lubuntu 10.04 LTS. This means that LXCE 1.0 will be supported with software and security updates until April 2013!

LXCE is the successor to XXCE Linux. LXCE features all the multimedia goodness and the web apps from XXCE.

Features include:

  • All software and security updates to November 28, 2011
  • All multimedia codecs from ubuntu-restricted-extras and xubuntu-restricted-extras
  • libdvdcss2, w32codecs, lame, faac, faad, and flac
  • Google Chrome replaces Chromium
  • Thunderbird replaces Sylpheed
  • xchat removed
  • Skype
  • Downloader for X
  • GIMP
  • Ristretto
  • Classic console emulators SNES9X, Stella, VisualBoyAdvance, GFCEUX, and GENS/GS; NOTE: No game ROMS or BIOS files included.
  • Brasero
  • Sound Juicer
  • Rhythmbox – including Shoutcast plugin
  • Ubuntu One, including the Ubuntu One Music Store plugin for Rhythmbox

And surprisingly, all this goodness fits in just 683 MB! Yes, LXCE 1.0 can be burned to a CD and used with older desktops and laptops which have a CD-ROM drive but no DVD drive!

I plan on working on LXCE 2.0 when Lubuntu 12.04 LTS comes out; it will be supported for 5 years.

In addition, I will check on my netbook to see if LXCE 1.5 is still installed on there. If so, I will update the software and re-remaster the ISO and upload is as soon as possible!

I predicted a while back that the feds would soon seize Megaupload and effectively send all my hard work down the memory hole.

Well, my prediction has come true.

Gone forever is XXCE 2.2.3, XXCE 4.1, XXCE 5.0, XXCE 6.0, XXMCE, UNEX 1.0, UNEX 2.0, UNEX 3.0, UNEX 4.0, LXCE 1.0, and LXCE 1.5.

However, don’t fear. UNEX and LXCE will live on, thanks to dedicated web hosting from HostGator! Work will soon begin on LXCE 2.0 as well as UNEX 5.0.

As a result of this development, this will be the final post on this blog. Please visit http://www.xxcelinux.com from now on.

After several months of planning, the XXCE Linux website is finally up and running!

LXCE 1.5 is available!

LXCE 1.5 is a customized remaster of Lubuntu 11.10, featuring extra software, enhanced multimedia capabilities, and web apps.

Featurs include:

  • Linux kernel 3.0.0-13-generic
  • All software/security updates to December 4, 2011
  • Ubuntu One
  • Banshee with Ubuntu One Music Store plugin
  • GIMP
  • Skype
  • Classic game console emulators (ROMS and BIOS files not included)
  • Google Chrome
  • Thunderbird
  • Brasero
  • Sound Juicer
  • Ristretto image viewer
  • Oracle VirtualBox 4.1.6
  • VLC 1.1.12
  • and much more

Unfortunately, LXCE 1.5 is too large to fit on a CD, so you will have to burn it to a DVD, USB flash drive, or SDHC memory card.

Look for LXCE 2.0 in April 2012!

I am currently working on LXCE 1.5!

LXCE 1.5 is a customized remaster of Lubuntu.11.10 with everything that comes with a standard LXCE/XXCE release.

This OS is ideal for those with older hardware or for those with newer hardware but wanting a super-fast and reliable OS.

LXCE 1.5 will be too large to fit on a CD, so you will need to burn the disc image to a DVD, USB flash drive, or a SDHC memory card.

As with LXCE and XXCE, LXCE will come with Google Chrome.

Stay tuned for a release announcement!

Because of issues with Megaupload, I am hosting LXCE 1.0 on Wupload. If the Megaupload issues are resolved, I will upload to Megaupload and edit this post to add a Megaupload link.

I will not be doing versions of LXCE based on Lubuntu 10.10 or Lubuntu 11.04. I plan on working on LXCE 2.0 when Lubuntu 12.04 LTS comes out; it will be supported for 5 years. In the meantime, I may do a version based on Lubuntu 11.10 as LXCE 1.5.

This is one of my earliest works. This was a customized remaster of Linux Mint 5 Fluxbox Community Edition given the XXCE treatment. This is for archive purposes only, as neither Linux Mint 5 nor Ubuntu Hardy – upon which Linux Mint 5 was based – are supported on the desktop.

If the Stop Online Piracy Act passes, I may have to shut down all my projects (XXCE, UNEX, LXCE) for the following reasons:

  1. My derivatives include multimedia codecs (MP3, MP4, AVI/DIVX/XVID) and encrypted DVD playback which cannot be legally offered for free in the United States.
  2. I cannot afford dedicated web hosting. I do this on my free time and use a free blog to post links to my work, and I use Megaupload to host my files. If SOPA passes, there is a strong chance that Megaupload will be blocked in the United States, which is where I live.
  3. There is also the strong possibility that because Ubuntu offers the aforementioned illegal multimedia codecs on their vast software repositories for free, the SOPA could be used to block all Ubuntu websites from being accessed in the United States. If this were the case, I would no longer be able to download Ubuntu or to use their software repositories.

If SOPA passes, it could mean the end of not only my Linux projects, but Linux in the United States period.
