LXDE has gone ?

Postby DaveK » Fri Oct 26, 2018 1:18 am

Today I re-installed Ubuntu Server 18.04 and then tried to install lxde, but it couldn't be found. It could 2 weeks ago.
/etc/apt/sources.list:
====
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic main universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security main universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-updates main universe multiverse
====

Does anyone know what's happening?

I see that you got your solution via the LXQt forum. "Lxde is back on line"

^ OK.

however, this would have been my first question:

Code: Select all

apt search lxde

Yes, the repository must have been being updated or something. It was back 2 hours later. At the time, "apt search lxde" couldn't find it, or lxpanel, and I had just read that lxqt was taking over.

Actually what I always do is

Code: Select all

sudo apt install lxde --no-install-recommends

because I prefer fully-featured apps for my daily use.
