Re: installing LXDE on BodhiLinux Topic is solved

Hi drooly, thanks for your additional comments. ;) In that case I'd rather recommend installing Debian proper, and opting for an LXDE desktop I see. I think that makes sense. But taking a look at https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=debian I realized the "Release Model" seems to have shift...

Re: installing LXDE on BodhiLinux Topic is solved

Hi abacus7, thank you for your reply. It´s very informative and interesting indeed. ;) Well, in the meantime I performed a fresh/clean install of Lubuntu 20.04 which means I´m using LXQt now. Thinking about what to do was a pretty long process in the course of which a also dowloaded LXLE and booted ...

Re: installing LXDE on BodhiLinux Topic is solved

Hello drooly, thank you so much for your reply. Your info is much appreciated. I´ve read all the info provided by your links and your signature. It´s especially https://github.com/LXDE which seems to indicate that the components of LXDE are still pretty well maintained. Rather a loose conglomerate o...

Re: installing LXDE on BodhiLinux Topic is solved

Hello drooly, thank you very much for your answer. So this looks good then. However the point you made is certainly worth taking into account. I must admit I wouldn´t have thought of that. :oops: So if I want the pure LXDE desktop then sudo apt-get install lxde would be the way to go. BTW: Do you by...

installing LXDE on BodhiLinux Topic is solved

Hi altogeher, currently I´m using Lubuntu 18.03.5 LTS, 64 bit. As this version will reach EOL next April I will have to do a fresh/clean install by then. As a matter of fact Lubuntu uses the LXQt desktop environment in 20.04 which I don´t like very much. So I´m looking for another distro. As I´ve be...

Re: mouse-pointer symbol "background activity"

Hi again, In the meantime I could solve the mystery. With the help of ondoho from linuxquestions.org. If anyone is interested here´s some background info: File: ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml please have a look at that file. (warning! XML is hard to read without syntax highlighting!) the name might d...

mouse-pointer symbol "background activity"

Hi altogether, I´ve got a question concerning my mouse-pointer when opening pcmanfm . From time to time my mouse-pointer changes to a symbol that represents something like an arrow melted together with a loading-circle. I tried to find out something about it and believe that it means "background act...
