LOve LXDE it runs soooooooooooooooooooo smooth and reminds me of windows 2000 or XP with out all the extended bloatware lol...any ways all I had to do to get it installed under Ubuntu 20.0.4.1 was
sudu apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
sudo apt install lxde
sudo apt autoremove
sudo clean
then reboot
Again love it... it runs at about 321 mb's sitting there with cpu usage at about 3%-4% opened 4 apps one running a video and it never got above 390 mb's and cpu never got above 9%
Any sugestions on enhancing the look a bit next i'll be installing it on a 32 bit system with a gig of memorie been looking this D.E definitely does what you guys say it does thank you for your hard work :) next week I'll be reinstalling Kubuntu and LXDE leave it at that :) :)
