Re: installing LXDE on BodhiLinux Topic is solved

But the result then won't be polished anymore. In that case I'd rather recommend installing Debian proper, and opting for an LXDE desktop. I'd argue that pure Debian as a base is not what most Lubuntu-LXDE users would want. Starting with the fact that Debian-LXDE comes with Wicd (or is it Wikd?) in...

Re: LXDE as default session

I installed LXDE on Ubuntu Mate and find it's much better! I can't find out where to change the default login session from Mate to LXDE. Obviously I can select the session in the login window, but I would like to make LXDE the default. Thanks! IIRC, after logging out from LXDE, there should be be o...

Re: 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 b...

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...
