Re: how to change default applications in Lubuntu.

So, I change/save the "desktop.conf" file or overwrite it with the one from another machine. But when I re-open "Default applications for LXSession". it does not show the changes made in the "desktop.conf" file I'm pretty much of a beginner in modifying LXDE outside its control (even though I've be...

Applications not available to add to launch bar 2nd edition

Its executable is in /usr/bin, and it properly executes. It installed to LXDE correctly in Debian 7.5 (LXDE 4). I'...

Moving back to LXDE 4

Hello,

Been using LXDE for a little more than 2 years on Debian Wheezy.

I've just installed Debian 8.4 with LXDE on a new system; I find that Debian 8.4 is using LXDE 6.

I'd like to move back to LXDE 4.

How can that be done?

TIA

Re: Unable to Logout LXDE

this is unexpected behavior for a normal pc/lxde installation. i guess the answer to your problem lies with "preinstalled" and "beagle bone black". Hi, New poster here. I recently installed Debian 7.5 Wheeze (stable) configured for LXDE on one of my laptops. The other instance of a Debian derivativ...
