Re: From Lubuntu-LXDE to What?

I did some RAM usage tests. Just some rough stuff... * I used free -m to measure the memory used. * I took the measurements immediately after boot, though with the netbook, I may have done some measurements after making changes and then logging out/logging in. * The 3xx numbers means I didn't write ...

Personally Id go with something based on Debian Stable, which wittles it down to Galpon MiniNo (a distro I have heard good things about for many years now) and KANOTIX.
Looks like Galpon MiniNo is dead.

Re: From Lubuntu-LXDE to What?

Putting all that (32bit, LXDE, not based on Ubuntu) in a distrowatch search pulls up a few results. Personally Id go with something based on Debian Stable, which wittles it down to Galpon MiniNo (a distro I have heard good things about for many years now) and KANOTIX. I'd give the former a whirl if...

Re: From Lubuntu-LXDE to What?

We have done our testing with real installs rather than in VMs. Not sure if that makes any difference. The testing mode used to not make a difference, but most of the Debian-based distros I've been testing currently have been on VMs and that's where I'm experiencing the repository problems. But I t...

Re: From Lubuntu-LXDE to What?

. We have not experienced any major difficulties with Lubuntu 20.04 which uses LXQT for 64 bit computers but that left us with the problem of the 32 bit computers. After looking at perhaps a dozen or so other alternatives, there are several which we thought could be used and they are AntiX, MX Linu...

From Lubuntu-LXDE to What?

I'm curious as to what Lubuntu users plan to do once the LXDE version is no longer supported. I haven't had much luck finding a replacement, but it's partly because of unexpected obstacles... LXLE looks good, but the 64-bit installer is corrupt. (I haven't tried the 32-bit one). I'm finding that Deb...

Re: Revisiting LXDE

For what it is worth, I heard an unsubstantiated rumor that the decision to move Lubuntu to LXQT was made because of a few individuals on the team who wanted to work on something new and exciting. Lubuntu in my opinion is no longer one of the "go to" distros for under powered, low Ram, or older com...

Re: Puzzled after reading a LXDE to LXQt article [SOLVED]

The actual problem: you succesfully changed the mousebind. but for which context? In my rc.xml, I found it under <context name="Frame"> I thought that means all window decorations, but apparently it means the whole window. Yeah, it was in the "Frame" context. It took me awhile to figure out what Fr...

Re: Puzzled after reading a LXDE to LXQt article [SOLVED]

Okay, here's everything I've done so far. 1. Earlier, I changed the bindings on all three configuration files: lubuntu-rc.xml, lxde-rc.xml, and rc.xml. (The latter is for openbox.) The change was to remove the Alt key from the right-click Resize binding. 2. I got the Resize function as desired, but ...

Re: Puzzled after reading a LXDE to LXQt article [SOLVED]

Man, that is so cool! THANK YOU!!! I didn't realize the commands worked that way...where you could just get rid of the control key (or whatever it's called) and leave the mouse part. But that certainly did the trick. Edit: There is a side effect I'm noticing. I seem to have lost my ability to right-...
