I have the Lynx and it is Lucid…

Ubuntu Lucid Lynx Alpha-3 on trial

ISO image available from

It’s now a week in and its all running sweetly.

Got the new look, themes, branding. Improved software centre has a habit of giving me a crash report whether it has crashed or not (??).

So far, very impressed. And it’s only an Alpha…

  • Downloaded the Lucid Alpha 3 ISO image,
  • Burned to CD using Brasero
  • Put it in the old Pentium 4 in the home-built plastic box with the spaghetti hanging out the back
  • Ran install
  • Ran update manager

Everything works out of the box;

  • Nvidia Ge-Force 440mx on the restricted drivers
  • Both sound cards – Intel in-board and the Creative Labs Sound Blaster
  • Wireless network dongle – Belkin 5770

Wednesday ran update manager and automatically got the new themes for Light – Ambience and Radiance. The samples didn’t convince, but on screen… yes.
