In the installation of Lubuntu 14.04 (and most other linux distros) one can choose whether to install commercial/proprietary third-party packages that do not necessarily have free licenses. These can be of help to the end users (mp3 decoding, specific drivers for commercial hardware, and unfortunately still Flash)... so do we want to do that, or do we need to distribute the laptops with a...

Hi all, I am trying to restore one of the default images with the -k1 and the -r option which should lead to the partition being expanded and the filesystem to be resized.
