How do you install LXDE on Puppy Linux? I have tried on both 528-004 Lucid and Precise Puppy Beta7. In both cases I have downloaded and installed all LXDE files, but cannot determine how to make it run.

Doesn't lxde sometimes have a special `startlxde` script or something?

In /root/.xinitrc the last line you have to change to exec startlxde
In /etc/windowmanager you have to replace the existing windowmanager (f.e. jwm) with openbox.

BTW why don't You try jejy69's lxde precise pup? Very beautiful and fast.

Thank you. Startlxde works.

Unfortunately, lxde precise puppy requires pae, so I cannot load it.

LxPup-by-SFS can be installed on various puppies (Slacko, Precise, Upup-Raring for instance) in both pae and non-pae flavours.....
