Re: Lxde does not start for user

It almost sounds like your system isn't loading in the driver for the video card/chip. I'm running 29 and had to disable acceleration in the driver (nouveau) in order to get the Plasma desktop to come up. Plasma, LXDE and LXQt all work fine in this mode. MATE and Cinnamon do not and have been remove...

Re: If LXDE is deprecated, can it still be used safely?

For the time being lxde and lxqt are both being developed. I believe that Lubuntu is the only major distro that has chosen to replace its DE. There may be others. There are well over 40 other distros that use lxde. LXDE is still in the Ubuntu repositories and is still being updated. Both will exist...

Re: is LXDE dead?

I have both LXDE and LXQt installed on Fedora 29 now and both are equally fast. I'm pleased with both.

Re: Unlock keyring prompts after LXQt login [SOLVED]

I found a solution. I renamed the folder keyrings , located in home/<username>/.local/share/ , to keyrings.old and rebooted. The window/prompt to input the password to unlock the keyring has not appeared after this and it automatically created a new /home/<username>/.local/share/keyrings folder. I'm...

Re: Unlock keyring prompts after LXQt login

I don't know what program is prompting for the password to unlock the keyring, because the window appears a few seconds after the LXQt desktop first appears. I don't have to launch anything (e-mail, browser). Lightdm is the desktop manager installed. 1. System boots up to Lightdm login screen. 2. Se...

Re: Unlock keyring prompts after LXQt login

Normal user password. As for enabling auto login, this began immediately at the first LXQt login after installation, so I can only guess that if it is enabled, it was done by default during the package installation. I have two other desktop environments installed as well and neither prompts for the ...

Unlock keyring prompts after LXQt login [SOLVED]

I installed LXQt on Fedora 27. On a 32-bit laptop, every time I login to LXQt, a window appears indicating that a keyring did not unlock and it prompts me for the password. I can either submit the password or click Cancel and either will make the box disappear. Does anyone know how to remedy this, s...

Re: Application windows take up part of screen

This Samsung monitor is the first wide-screen monitor I've had. At the time I purchased it, wide-screen were the only monitors the local Sam's Club had. I wanted a standard monitor (and an LG), but no one had them. :(

Re: LXDE on Fedora 22

I've upgraded from Debian to Fedora. why is that an upgrade? and how can you achieve that without re-installing? in any case, your question is fedora specific. only they can answer it. I've been told going from Debian to Fedora, I upgraded to a modern distro. As for the original issue, it's since b...

Re: Application windows take up part of screen

Thanks for the reply, Rex. Not sure what happened... :? I removed LXDE from the desktop this was occurring on, had some difficulty re-installing it as a package libfm-gtk-utils unexpectedly obsoleted lxshortcut (although the lxshortcut command works perfectly). But after LXDE was re-installed, upon ...
