I installed lxde, but my wireless internet doesn't work. I can switch back to gnome and it works perfectly. I tried wicd and manually connecting with the command line. Both fail while trying to get an ip.

General :: Best LXDE Based Distro/distro That Supports LXDE?

Dec 15, 2010

Lubuntu is nice - but it seems the LXDE version is not as up to date as Fedora LXDE Spin or even Debian squeeze with LXDE installed. I do like Chromium on Lubuntu though... its faster and a nice touch. I am looking for a lightweight 64-bit distribution for my main laptop (it is by no means "old" or "low spec" but I like that Lubuntu starts up in like 2 secs).

LXDE version seems not to be recent (esp in 10.04 version which seems to work more stably for me - with Nvidia drivers etc)64 bit install is currently a pain - requires first install of minimal CD or alternate CD both of which required wired Ethernet, then install of lubuntu from PPA. Native 64-bit support would be nice. Linux Mint LXDE, for example, is also only 32-bit.

OpenSUSE :: Lxde Doesn't Save Settings - 11.3

Jan 2, 2011

I switched to lxde, love the speed, but it has one major glitch: it doesn't save the settings. the most annoying: the setting " enable tapping" of the touchpad isn't saved afer a reboot. I tried the following:

delete ~/config/lxde ~config/lxpanel ~/config/pcmanfmand the other solution i found in the forum:Opensuse 11.3 LXDE Keeps Changing My Wallpaper Back To Default

I'm using opensuse 11.3, added repo lxde, updated everythng. So far, nothing.

Debian Multimedia :: Jessie - LXDE Doesn't Shutdown Properly

May 19, 2015

I know the problem has been partly solved in this old thread [URL] .....

Now we have Jessie as stable, yet LXDE doesn't shutdown properly:

On the same computers, Wheezy LXDE shut down very fast

I installed Jessie from the netinstall image.

On a 2007 computer, it's like the old days with a Pentium II running some version of Puppy Linux or Slitaz. The system shuts down after a while but the computer remains on.

On a 2013 laptop, I added the line init=/bin/systemd in the Grub default file as advised on the old thread above. The laptop shuts down after a while, the system first, then the hard disk goes to sleep, then all the leds are off.

If I run the magic command, the computer shutdowns in a breeze, perhaps even quicker than good old Wheezy:

Code: Select all# systemctl poweroff

Now, is this still a systemd bug? Doesn't look like it since the systemctl command works. Is it an LXDE bug? Looks like it in a way - if the LXDE shutdown button enabled the systemctl poweroff command, I suppose the button would work?

Is there a way to make the LXDE shutdown button run the systemctl poweroff command?

I'm glad Wheezy is still with us because I wouldn't install Jessie for newbies — they'd think shutdown (through clicking on a button) is even worse than in Windows.

Debian Multimedia :: Left Click Doesn't Get Options On Lxde And Xfce?

May 3, 2010

I'm running lenny on a dell c600. Presently I'm using kde (which is great), but due to system requirements (c600 is ancient... more than 5 years old ; ) it's a bit slow. So I started checking out lxde and xfce. There both great, except for one problem: The left click on a program icon in the (pardon the microsoft analogy) start menu launches it unstead of giving me options like 'link to desktop'

Debian Installation :: Setting Up Wireless In Lxde Livecd

May 3, 2011

I've searched a bit and found this page [URL] , which says to use the wicd program, but since I don't have internet there, I can't install the program!

Debian Configuration :: Using Live LXDE Wireless WDA-1320?

Sep 11, 2011

I do recall being able to at least figure out Debian enough that I got my wireless working (a few years back). Today I popped in a fresh Live LXDE DVD. I can't find that my wireless is recognized, nor can I find any graphical network management utilities. Nothing network related. Perhaps its all in the command line, but I'm not too familiar with it (though I'm not averse to following instructions if I can use that to simply fix this issue).

I did look at documentation first. To the best of my ability anyway. I could not use it to help myself. Once I get internet working, at least I can trouble shoot on the Debian installation itself, which makes the process much easier. Having to switch out to a Windows installation is a pain.

General :: Wireless Works Fine In LXDE But Not Icewm Or Openbox?

Jan 15, 2011

I have an older laptop (P4 Compaq Presario 2110; 512mb RAM) on which I installed Lubuntu 10.10. I am using a Buffalo wireless G PCMCIA card (Broadcom 43xx chip set) on the LXDE side which works perfectly. Out of curiosity I installed 'icewm' and 'openbox.' My wireless card shows when I check lspci as "UP." Using wicd, I can see networks, but my router will not resolve an IP address. NetworkManager does nothing.

I have tried using both ifconfig and iwconfig commands with no love.

Is this something inherent with lighter WMs and desktops? Is there a means to allow my router assign an IP and why would it be different for a different WM? Should the IP address be assigned to the computer?

Debian Hardware :: Intel AC 7260 WiFi Not Work In Jessie LXDE With Wicd

Feb 5, 2015

My wifi does not work in the actual debian testing jessie lxde amd64 with wicd version (fresh install). What I've done:

0. Fresh testing jessie install (offline and ignored the question for adding iwlwifi)

1. Adding following sources:
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free

2. apt-get update

3. apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi

4. modprobe -r iwlwifi ; modprobe iwlwifi

So searching the web just brings up the wheezy way solution (backport new kernel and iwlwifi).

But in this case, actual jessie testing kernel is already installed by default and so the actual 43 firmware-iwlwifi

Some information:
Code: Select all# dpkg -l |grep -i iwlwifi
ii  firmware-iwlwifi                      0.43                              all          Binary firmware for Intel Wireless cards

Code: Select all# dmesg | grep wifi
[    7.890216] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: irq 107 for MSI/MSI-X
[    8.478878] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: firmware: direct-loading firmware iwlwifi-7260-9.ucode
[    8.479867] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: loaded firmware version op_mode iwlmvm
[    8.553105] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: Detected Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 7260, REV=0x144
[    8.553193] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: L1 Enabled - LTR Enabled

[Code] ....

I must add: lxde Debian uses Wicd, so network-manager is not installed !

Wicd seems to be the problem. After changing to network-manager, everthing is ok.

Next install with the official Jessie release, i will look, why wicd not work out of the box.

Ubuntu Networking :: Ndiswrapper Works On Xubuntu, But Not During Lxde Sessions?

May 27, 2010

So I have a usb wireless adapter that I set up on my Xubuntu system, and it has been working great since. The laptop that I have Xubuntu on is kind of a POS, so I wanted to try out LXDE to see how it would fare in terms of resource usage.When logged into an LXDE session, all of the ndiswrapper settings appear to be the same, but there are no networks listed and it doesn't connect.

Fedora Networking :: Manage WiFi On LXDE With Xmonad?

Apr 6, 2011

I got myself into some trouble this afternoon when I thought I would give xmonad a try on my HP mini 210 that runs f14 lxde spin. so, after installing xmonad and dmenu and playig around a bit I found out that my wifi doesn't work. I tried ifup but I get the 'usage: .." response which I have read means that the programm can't find a configuration file for the device (and I am pretty sure that some programm was managing these files for me up until now).

I have tried to run system-config-network, which defaults to the tui version for some reason, I guess at this point that the normal gui is based on the gnome backend or something? Anyway, the terminal version just outputs a bunch of info about the devices that exist on the system (eth1 the broadcom wifi device is also listed) and then exits.

Anyway, in the normal lxde desktop you could use the gnome network manager, I guess this is not the case when running xmonad. So how do I do this? Links to documentation are welcomed. EDIT: some info about how I get to xmonad, the machine uses the standard LXDM login and from there I just select the xnomad window manger before logging in. I mean I am not trying to use it on top of anything else (eg. xmonad/gnome or xmonad/lxde etc.)

Fedora :: Software Update Or Add / Remove Software Does Not Work In LXDE

Jul 4, 2011

I've installed F15 Gnome 3 and after a while in using this interface, I decided I rather go back to the LXDE desktop. so I've removed GNOME and installed LXDE.I'm not sure if it worked in GNOME 3 - but now in the LXDE I'm unable to install software using Add/Remove Software applet or check for software updates.When I attempt to do so - I get an error message telling me that "Authorization failed" - it doesn't even prompt me for the root password and I've resorted to having to do the install of new software and updates through the command line using "yum install ..... " and "yum upgrade".

Fedora Networking :: Doesn't Work After Turned Off Wireless By Pressing A Wireless Button On Laptop?

May 19, 2011

Recently I have installed Fedora 14 on my other laptop. It's a dual boot with Windows 7. Everything worked perfectly fine, networking included, until my friend didn't accidently turned off the wireless by pressing a wireless button on the laptop. Since then the wireless on Fedora doesn't work. It does on Windows thought. I've tried restarting the laptop few times, but the wireless still doesn't want to work again.

I want the KVM console to fall to text as the default ubuntu-server does, however after installing lxde it seems to start lxdm from somewhere... It is disabled in the rc.*/* setup...

root@srv:/etc# ls -ld rc.*/*lx* init.d/*lx*

Ubuntu :: LXDE CPU Usage Monitor?

Nov 14, 2010

By default, it displays the LXDE CPU Usage Monitor at the bottom. Does this monitor actually use CPU resources itself, and if so, would it be recommended to remove it from the panel on a slower system?

This is on an AMD K6-2 system (500 MHz) with 640Mb of PC-100 memory (circa 2001). By itself, the system is better than average when using LXDE, but I have noticed that when the system is checking for updates or when it is printing something, the usage monitor essentially displays 100% CPU usage until the updater or printer finishes, as the case may be. It will also indicate 100% usage when the web browser is loading in a web page.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Using Decibel In LXDE?

Jan 5, 2011

Lubuntu comes default with Aqualung - which I'm certainly happy with. Unfortunately it doesn't yet support Last.fm, so I'm auditioning new players. The first (and only - so far) that I've installed is Decibel. I quite like the look of it so far. It has the features I need without the bloat. Unfortunately I can't get it to work. When I select a track or tracks from the CD drive (yes - I still listen to CD's ) the track shows up in the playlist and the disc spins in the drive for a second or two, but I get nothing. Just a red X next to the track in the playlist. And tracks on my hard drive don't even show up in the explorer module. And no info is retrieved from cddb (I do have that option selected).

From what I've read Decibel is geared toward GNOME users, and based on Python. Python appears to be installed by default in Lubuntu, so I'm going to assume that Lubuntu lacks something else that GNOME has which will allow this thing to operate. But I have no idea what that might be.Has anyone managed to use Decibel on LXDE?
