I am trying out lxde to see if I can make it useful. Everything seems snappier than with gnome classic no effects. Forget about default ubuntu, which I don't think will run at all.
I got webilder (a must have application and a deal breaker for me) to work.
Now, I cannot figure out how to add a startup application to lxde.
So far, I got lxdesession-edit to run, but none of the junk I wish to add to startup is there. Then there is a garbled bit of text over on wiki, http://wiki.lxde.org/en/LXSession#Au...tions_on_login
I do not understand those instructions. First off what is ~/directory? And how would this relate to gnome v. lxde?
I have also played with home/autostart adding lines of gedit and copying shortcuts to it. Setting permissions. No luck.
