=== PPA management ===
 * During the testing phase you may be asked via the mailing list to help test software by adding a test [[https://help.launchpad.net/Packaging/PPA|PPA]]. Sometimes it does not go too well and you need to reverse the changes. A great tool for this is '''apt'''. It's installed by default as the terminal package manager.

Usage is quite simple, just issue the following command:
{{{
sudo apt-add-repository -r ppa:Name_of_ppa
}}}
E.g., if the ppa is test/ppa the command would be:
{{{
sudo apt-add-repository -r ppa:test/ppa
}}}

 * Using [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/DocumentationHelp/LXTerminal| LXTerminal]] navigate to the directory with the iso file in it and issue
{{{
md5sum name_of_iso.iso
}}}
~-Note: iso name can be found in the released section-~
 * It should report back the corresponding value of the [[http://people.ubuntu.com/~gilir/md5sum.txt | MD5 Checksum]] file. If it does not, the download is corrupt.

 * After confirming that the file has downloaded okay, you can then burn the cd (help on this can be found at [[https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto|Burning an ISO]], there is a screen cast for using xfburn at [[http://lubuntu.net/node/38 | Burning CDs/DVDs (using XFBurn)]]). Always burn at a slow speed (4X, or slower). Using [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/DocumentationHelp/LXTerminal| LXTerminal]] issue
{{{
dd if=/dev/cdrom bs=2048 count=339675 | md5sum
}}}
 * Again it should report back the corresponding value of the [[http://people.ubuntu.com/~gilir/md5sum.txt | MD5 Checksum]] file. Any other result means that the cd has not burned correctly.
On the help-pages of Ubuntu there is an extensive guide on [[https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM|how to MD5SUM]]. In our case the terminal would be [[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/DocumentationHelp/LXTerminal| LXTerminal]].

Testing Lubuntu

This section is dedicated to the development version of Lubuntu. As with all alphas and non-stable betas they are not suitable for a production environment, please take the time to read Common Questions for Testing

Ubiquity (the installer) will ask you for keyboard configuration. Be sure to say No, so you will be able to configure your keyboard properly and select your layout. Otherwise, you may not be able to use your keyboard after the reboot.

It is recommended that you join the Lubuntu mailing-list so you keep notified of changes and bugs. As always, please try to use the torrent download and keep uploading. Torrent Download shares the work between several computers and should be much faster. As it's free software, you don't need to worry about legal issues.
