Re: Anyone know the Lubuntu release date?

The original intention was to introduce Lubuntu with Karmic Koala (9.10), but it was abandoned in favor of a script which may become a package ("lubuntu-desktop") available through Synaptic. But the first Lubuntu release will most likely be in late April with Lucid (10.4). It will also have the adva...

Re: no audio

Hi Same problem for me: audio ok with gdm but nothing with slim. Solved like that: If you have "exec startlxde" in .xinitrc Remove this line and try "exec ck-launch-session startlxde" I cannot locate any file with ".xinitrc" as part of the name to check it. What directory should I look in for that ...

Re: No wireless access

In my minimal Jaunty+LDXE mixyure, I find that using wicd as the network manager solves a few problems for me. Try it and see if it helps....

Re: Masonux: LXDE-based Ubuntu spinoff that sticks to its roots

I wrote a gloating blog post about LXDE here. As for the network issue, I find that wicd works effortlessly with LXDE better than the Ubuntu default.

My current mixture is minimal Ubuntu with LXDE and my favorite apps. It rawks!

Re: net. status monitor makes bad

Try using wicd as your network manager. If that doesn't improve things, check the bug reports... it may be something they're already aware of.

PCLXDE Released!

It rocks! Check the newest LXDE distro from PCLinuxOS! It's flawless, elegant, light, and speedy. The best implementation of LXDE I have seen yet.

Winning Windows Users Over

I have a laptop computer at the dance studio that gets passed around a lot. To make it super-simple and familiar looking to most of the dancers, I use LXDE with a pretty wallpaper and "clickable icons" so that users completely unfamiliar with Linux can use it effortlessly. They don't even know it's ...

Re: desktop shortcuts

Oh my, I'm not nearly geeky enough, I guess. I just opened PCManFM, navigated to my applications (usr/share/applications) and there were the icons for all my apps. I simply dragged the ones I wanted to my desktop and dropped them there. Done.

Re: live-CD no video no audio

Flash 10 works beautifully on my Debian Squeeze but that's not the point. What I want to know is, how do I make the video and audio work on the live CD which I downloaded from this site? That's the Debian/LXDE you downloaded I assume. You may need to add some drivers and/or codecs to your installat...

Re: LXDE success story

My story is very much like yours! Even my newer computer (celeron 2.8 G with 512 RAM) runs much better, much faster, and much cooler (temperature) using LXDE than Gnome, KDE (which is horrendously heavy and slow on it) and even Xfce. I can run ordinarily "heavy" operating systems effortlessly and sp...
