How to install LXDE

From Salix OS
Jump to: navigation, search

Salix uses the XFCE Desktop Environment by default, but LXDE is available from the repository and it's very easy to install. This how-to was based on a Salix "basic" installation, so it should work for any system that already has Xorg installed.

Installing LXDE

You only need to do:

 slapt-get -u
 slapt-get -i lxde-common openbox pcmanfm lxpanel lxsession menu-cache lxmenu-data

You probably want to have some additional tools, too:

slapt-get -i lxterminal lxappearance lxinput lxrandr lxtask obconf midori

That's it! You're ready to log in your shiny LXDE desktop!
