LXScreenhot & LXFind

The great Stefano has been working hard for this updates. The new apps are really simple, efficient and fast, very close to the Lubuntu philosophy. Also, new icons for them were created, using the Lubuntu Box (the forthcoming theme) design guides:

If you want to test them just do this on a terminal (ignore the first line if you already added the additional Lubuntu Desktop PPA) :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lubuntu-desktop/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y lxscreenshot lxfind


  1. Hi,

    I have installed LXscreenshot and LXFind, but the icons are still the old ones (on Lubuntu 11.10). It is normal ?

    Anyway, thanks to you and Stefano :)

  2. Hi, Pierre. My apologies. The icons need to be packaged with the newer versions, and we'll have to wait a few days until they will be packaged.

    And thank you to you too.

  3. there have not made ​​something at the lxfind the since 2012/3/16. will be cannot søge with finde and native. and lxscreenshot can not be even stores as. png or. jpg and not made ​​something at the since 2012/2/11

  4. LXFind works as usual. LXScreenshot stores the images as PNGs, but it doesn't put the extension .PNG automatically, and this may cause confusion. Just name the file to store like something.png and it will work.

  5. No lxfind dos not with find and native.
