Re: Installation of Fedora 16-LXDE failed

Fedora is definitely a bit of a pig when it comes to the amount of memory required for installation. You can blame it on anaconda (the installer program). I haven't tried an installation on a 512MB system in some time - it's possible that a text-mode install won't require as much memory. It's even p...

Re: Customizing LXDE

Interesting. My panel changes seem to stick. You might try deleting ~/.config/lxpanel/default (which is an empty directory on my system) then recreating it as a symlink to ~/.config/lxpanel/LXDE.

Re: Bottom panel suddenly disappears

I normally run two panels, one on the bottom and another along the right edge. I've seen the disappearing bottom panel in both Fedora and ..buntu (not quite Lubuntu; I started with Kubuntu but replaced KDE with LXDE). Perhaps because I still have an active panel, the command lxpanel restart seems to...

Re: Customizing LXDE

I don't know what the problem is, but you might try renaming your /home/anttoni/.config/openbox directory to something else (perhaps /home/anttoni/.config/openbox.bak) and logging out and back in and letting openbox regenerate /home/anttoni/.config/openbox.

Re: Cannot shutdown or reboot lxde from lxde-logout menu

I see the same problem in Fedora Rawhide. I believe it's related to the problems with lxpolkit.

Re: no volume control on lxpanel 0.5.8

I use gmixer with Fedora 15 and Fedora 16, and pnmixer with Fedora Rawhide. Not sure what Mint uses

Re: which distribution with lxde

I think Fedora with LXDE is better (than Fedora with Gnome shell)
I think Ubuntu with LXDE is better (than Ubuntu with Unity)
I think Linux Mint with LXDE is very nice (but Cinnamon looks interesting)

I think you should try various distros until you find one you like

Fedora 16 pcmanfm problem

I'm encountering a very strange problem with pcmanfm under Fedora 16, and I have no idea what the root cause might be. My system boots to the cli, and I normally initiate an LXDE session by running startx . I have two user accounts on the system, in addition to root. For the second user, everything ...
