Additional Info
DONATE to 4th Floor Development [ http://4thfloor-donate.bbs.pl/ ] if you want to to see more updates / ports and ORIGINAL EXCLUSIVE APPS for OPENPANDORA [like OpenPandora BookShelf / Inside The Box - PND E-Zine / Babypanda WebBrowser / EX Launcher / Computer Chronicles Lives / CLI Love and more.. ]

Working wifi / internet connection on Pandora is required to use LXDE Installer..

Please report any bugs and/or feat. requests HERE:
http://boards.openpandora.org/index.php?/topic/8446-lxde-installer/

Why use LXDE instead of XFCE:
- Much faster
- More responsive [MAIN MENU, etc..]
- No overbloated like XFCE
- Smaller than XFCE
- Better designed than XFCE
- Looks better on pandora small screen
- LXTaskmanager is better than XFCE one [smaller, faster..]
- LXTerminal is better than XFCE one [where you can't use proper F10 key]
- LXDE is less resource/memory hungry than XFCE [excellent for Pandora 1st batch, with less RAM]
- Touchscreen seems to be more responsive on LXDE than XFCE [tested on super zaxxon beta 3]

..and finally, you need to test it for yourself to choose best windows manager for Your openpandora :)

v1.0.0.2
This removes any entries you may have added from GUI switcher, and there is no way to revert the change. Make backups before you try this one.

Some tweaks need to be made to LXDE itself, but that's not the responsibility of this installer. I think it would be better if this package had the LXDE files within it, so I don't have to use my Pandora to download. Perhaps that would be annoying to maintain though, so I don't mind. Great work!

v1.0.0.2
it's a good desktop but as for it being better than XFCE? i disagree. i don't like how LXDE organizes my apps. it places Adacious and documents in "other" submenu. it places my Emulators in "game" submenu. it's places these apps all over the place.

Installation worked fine, no problems running LXDE by selecting it at startup. Some minor cosmetic/handling issues, see discussion thread. Snappy desktop!

because running openbox while loading XFCE has noting to do with the stability of LXDE..
