  1. When I move and place the taskbar to the right or left on the screen, the appearance of it becomes all wrong.

    The Lubuntu does not change the theme of windows.

    He needs mouse pointers larger, which comes by default are very small, need an option for large or extra large size.

    I use Lubuntu 14.

  2. If you are having difficulty you can contact the users list for Lubuntu,
    There are a lot of very nice people there to help solving issues


  3. Anyway, the default theme for Lubuntu is ready for horizontal panels, because it's a bitmap made for that. If you turn the panel you must change its background or use a plain colour.

    The windows borders theme is changed with lxappearance OpenBox plugin, or with the app ObConf.

    If you need cursors you can look for them at http://www.gnome-look.org

  4. Is this still planned to be added to the Lubuntu repo?
