Distributions with LXDE installation images (2022)

Post by drooly »

Since Lubuntu switched to LXQt it's not so easy to find a distro that actually features LXDE.

This list is by no means complete, please feel free to suggest more - if it has a downloadable installation medium that already contains a preconfigured LXDE, post it here!
That said, there's many, many distros that offer LXDE as a desktop option during install, or have a LXDE metapackage in their repositories. Most major distros for sure.
Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with the distros listed, it is just what I found after some searching.

PS: the LXDE wiki used to have a page about Linux distributions, too.

Greetings,

FYI, Gentoo Linux still has LXDE in the portage tree, so you always have the choice for LXDE there, too.

NOTE: For those unfamiliar, Gentoo Linux doesn't have any desktop by default until you choose to build one.

I hope that helps.

Regards,

Manjaro link is giving error 404. The LXDE environment is also no longer listed in the options. :(
