This page seems out of date or incomplete.  LXDE requires a window manager, and currently none is automatically pulled in by the lxde package. The pacman command should probably be: 'pacman -Sy openbox lxde gamin' -- but I haven't tested that to see if it works.  Alternatively, a section describing the alternative window managers that can be used with LXDE and how to install them should be added.

(For now, added a note clarifying the fact that some window manager will have to be installed for LXDE to work. Agreed that a more extensive re-write of this page might be better, but I'll leave that for somebody who knows LXDE better than I do.)

I noticed that on this page there is no mention of using ''systemctl enable lxdm.service'' but on the [[Display Manager]] page that is what is described. I'm new here, so before I edit this page I just wanted to make sure that adding information so the two pages are in sync was okay.

:Yes 'pacman -Sy openbox lxde gamin' works. I've just done that on a fresh install. Don't want to make edits directly since this is my first time ever on LXDE. [[User:Claestw|Claestw]] 19:21, 24 October 2009 (EDT)

Hi,
 +
I'm testing lxde desktop with openbox window manager under qemu (1.0).
  
It seems that now HAL is deprecated, but it's still advised in this wiki page. As I'm not an expert, I would like someone to confirm/correct the wikipage.

If I start xorg with xf86-video-vesa driver (2.3.0-7), then lxterminal (0.1.11-1) - and only lxterminal - is badly displayed.

 +
If I start xorg with xf86-video-cirrus (1.3.2-7), then lxterminal is well displayed.
 +
 
 +
If I start qemu with the parameter "-vga std", display problems with lxterminal and xf86-video-vesa disappear.
 +
 
 +
May be a bug in lxterminal... Screenshots are available if needed.

lxdm

I noticed that on this page there is no mention of using systemctl enable lxdm.service but on the Display Manager page that is what is described. I'm new here, so before I edit this page I just wanted to make sure that adding information so the two pages are in sync was okay. Thanks, Schultzter (talk) 04:04, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

lxterminal

Hi, I'm testing lxde desktop with openbox window manager under qemu (1.0).

If I start xorg with xf86-video-vesa driver (2.3.0-7), then lxterminal (0.1.11-1) - and only lxterminal - is badly displayed.

If I start xorg with xf86-video-cirrus (1.3.2-7), then lxterminal is well displayed.

If I start qemu with the parameter "-vga std", display problems with lxterminal and xf86-video-vesa disappear.

May be a bug in lxterminal... Screenshots are available if needed.

Directories for .desktop files

LXDE looks in two other directories besides /usr/share/applications to find applications to put into its menus:

/usr/local/share/applications

~/.local/share/applications

This is important if you want to add your own applications to LXDE; you don't have to mess with directories controlled by pacman.
