Questions after installing Lubuntu 12.10 (Daily Build, October 6)

the artwork issues will trickle into the build release as soon as they're
happy with the fact they don't break anything. As you are running the 12.10
test version, it will seamlessly become 'final release' when it arrives.
Just be aware that if you're using developer PPA's, it would be wise to
remove them when release is due else you may find something 'bleeding edge'
suddenly arrive on your system. I usually recommend that a PPA is added,
the software you want is grabbed, and the PPA is then dropped.
I can't help with the Audacious issue, but I'm sure some one will answer.
Thanks for your testing, you may also want to join the lubuntu testing
mailing list .
