How To Install Lubuntu 16.04 Alongside Windows 10


In this guide I will show you how to dual boot the latest Lubuntu 16.04 release alongside Windows 10 on a machine with an EFI boot loader.

1.  Take A Backup

Before installing Lubuntu alongside Windows it is a good idea to take a backup of your computer so that you can get back to where you are now should the installation fail.

2.  Shrink Your Windows Partition

In order to install Lubuntu alongside Windows you will need to shrink the Windows partition as it will currently take up the entire disk.

Right click on the start button and choose "Disk Management"

The disk management tool will show you an overview of the partitions on your hard drive.

Your system will have an EFI partition, a C drive and possibly a number of other partitions.

Right click on the C drive and choose "Shrink Volume".

A window will appear showing how much you can shrink the C drive by.

Lubuntu only needs a small amount of disk space and you can get away with as little as 10 gigabytes but if you have the space I recommend choosing at least 50 gigabytes.

The disk management screen shows the amount you can shrink by in megabytes so in order to choose 50 gigabytes you need to enter 50000.

Warning: Do not shrink by more than the amount suggested by the disk management tool as you will break Windows.

When you are ready click "Shrink".

You will now see unallocated space available.

3.  Create A Lubuntu USB Drive And Boot Into Lubuntu

You will now need to create a Lubuntu live USB drive.

In order to do this you will need to download Lubuntu from their website, install the Win32 disk imaging tool and burn the ISO to the USB drive.

4.  Choose Your Language

When you reach the Lubuntu live environment double click on the icon to install Lubuntu.

The first thing you need to do is choose your installation language from the list on the left.

Click "Continue".

You will now be asked whether you want to download updates and whether you want to install third party tools.

I generally keep both of these unticked and perform the updates and install third party tools at the end.

Click "Continue".

5.  Choose Where To Install Lubuntu

The Lubuntu installer should have picked up on the fact that you have Windows installed already and so you should be able to choose the option to install Lubuntu alongside Windows Boot Manager.

This will create 2 partitions in the unallocated space created when you shrank Windows.

The first partition will be used for Lubuntu and the second will be used for swap space.

Click "Install Now" and a message will appear showing which partitions are going to be created.

Click "Continue".

6.  Select Your Location

If you are lucky your location will have been automatically detected.

If it hasn't choose your location on the map provided.

Click "Continue".

7.  Select Your Keyboard Layout

The Lubuntu installer will hopefully have chosen the best keyboard layout for your computer.

If it hasn't choose the keyboard language from the left list and then the layout in the right pane.

Click "Continue".

8.  Create A User

You can now create a user for the computer.

Enter your name and a name for your computer.

Finally pick a username and enter a password for the user.

You will need to confirm the password.

You can choose to login automatically (not recommended) or require a password to log in.

You can also choose whether to encrypt your home folder.

Click "Continue".

9.  Complete The Installation

The files will now be copied to your computer and Lubuntu will be installed.

When the process has finished you will be asked whether you want to continue testing or whether you want to restart.

Choose the continue testing option

10.  Change The UEFI Boot Sequence

The Lubuntu installer doesn't always get the installation of the boot loader correct and therefore you may find that if you restarted without following these steps that Windows continues to boot with no signs of Lubuntu anywhere.

Follow this guide to reset the EFI Boot Order

You will need to open a terminal window in order to follow this guide. (Press CTRL, ALT and T)

You can skip the part about installing efibootmgr as it comes preinstalled as part of the live version of Lubuntu.

After you have reset the boot order, restart your computer and remove the USB drive.

A menu should appear every time you boot your computer. There should be an option for Lubuntu (although it might be called Ubuntu) and an option for Windows Boot Manager (which is Windows).

Try both options and make sure they load correctly.

Update Facebook’s iOS App Now To Get More Battery Life From Your iPhone f

Facebook’s official app is among the most used apps on any mobile platform today, and it is no surprise that it contributes to a major portion of the on-screen time on our phones and tablets. While Facebook app using some of the battery is understandable given the complexity of the social network and the fact it’s used a lot, but a major battery drain is unacceptable for obvious reasons. This has been the case for over a week for most iOS users, be it on iPhone or on iPad, and such has been the criticism that after initially acknowledging the issue last week, Facebook has now released an app update to fix the problem.

Those experiencing this unusual battery drain could tell, thanks to the battery analytics in iOS 9, that the app was running in the background for quite a few hours, in some cases almost double the on-screen time of the app. All of this was transpiring despite users having turned off the Background App Refresh in iOS for Facebook.

When the roars and cries started coming in, independent researchers started digging up on any potential clues that could explain why the most downloaded app on the iOS App Store was behaving in such erratic manner. One possible explanation was the use of silent audio in the background, and as it turned out, that hypothesis was right on the mark.

According to Ari Grant, an Engineering Manager at Facebook:

The second issue is with how we manage audio sessions. If you leave the Facebook app after watching a video, the audio session sometimes stays open as if the app was playing audio silently. This is similar to when you close a music app and want to keep listening to the music while you do other things, except in this case it was unintentional and nothing kept playing.

With videos being played automatically as you browse through your Facebook News Feed, there were bound to be a host of users becoming a victim to the bug as pointed out by Grant. Another issue pointed out by Grant had something to do with a “CPU spin” code.

The first issue we found was a “CPU spin” in our network code. A CPU spin is like a child in a car asking, “Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?” with the question not resulting in any progress to reaching the destination. This repeated processing causes our app to use more battery than intended.

The good news now is that you don’t have to follow any tips or tricks to fix the issue. Facebook has released version 42.0 of its iOS app, and it should be showing up as pending update in the App Store. Go update it now!
