What is daemon mode?

An explanation of daemon mode would be handy on the wiki page , i.e. what exactly happens when the user runs: pcmanfm --daemon-mode & I know this line can be run at startup (e.g. in autostart.sh if running Openbox, rather than LXDE). Does this just mean that it detects drives being plugged in so it ...

How to change default date format?

The default date format is US (and almost everyone else uses the international DD/MM/YYYY format).

How do I change the system default, so that the date in PCManFM, for example, shows in the international format?

(I found Clock settings but that only affects the panel clock.)

GUI available

There's now a GUI. I can't find it on the menu, but the command is lxsession-edit.

Re: Benchmark testing - proving what LXDE can do.

A comparison of taking, shall we say, a Gnome desktop, tearing out the Gnome panel, and starting LXPanel instead, without doing any other slimming, will be flawed for that reason. Agreed. I'm not sure why you mention it - I am not suggesting such a test. What about my suggestion of comparing Gnome,...

CrunchBang theme

Personally I really like the look of CrunchBang Linux . It uses OpenBox with its own sleek, minimalist look. I'm on CrunchBang 8.10 (i.e. I haven't upgraded) and the default theme (via lxappearance) seems to be Raleigh. It uses something called Nitrogen to handle the wallpaper, and conky to display ...

Re: Which distros work best with LXDE?

OK, Fedora's LXDE Spin is now available at http://spins.fedoraproject.org/lxde/ Get it while it's hot and please don't forget to give me your feedback! ;) Have fun, Christoph Warning : There's a block on it . Glad I took the conservative approach. I'll wait. Looking forward to trying it though - th...

Re: Which distros work best with LXDE?

i run debian sid/unstable... i dont have features like lxtask.. i wanna them.. In Andrew Lee's LXDE folder there are debs of LXDE packages, including lxtask_0.1-1_i386.deb - I don't understand the dash, but if that means v 1.1, then it's the same version as at sourceforge . I installed that that de...

I wasn't aware of that. This post from earlier in the year showed that the Crunchbang maintainer already liked tint (and trayer) but at that stage they weren't stable enough.

Help! LXNM not working in MEPIS, on Thinkpad

Synaptic tells me that LXNM is installed. (Actually it had to remove network-manager and network-manager-kde to install it.) However it doesn't seem to be running (looking at LXTask) and there is no connection or wifi icon in the bottom right, or anywhere else. I'm on a wired connection now, but lat...

Benchmark testing - proving what LXDE can do.

(This is more about publicity than development, but I couldn't find another forum to put it in.) I've been spreading the word about LXDE (including through @appropedia and @chriswaterguy accounts, on Identi.ca and Twitter). Part of what I'm finding is that many Linux people aren't aware of what it's...
