LXDE (the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment) is a project aimed
to provide a desktop environment which is lightweight and fast.
It's not designed to be powerful and bloated, but to be usable and slim
enough, and keep the resource usage low. Different from other desktop
environments, LXDE doesn't tightly integrate every component. Instead,
LXDE tried to make all components independent, and each of them can be
used independently with fewer dependencies.
* Lightweight, runs with reasonable memory usage
* Fast, runs well even on older machines produced in 1999
* Good-looking, GTK+ 2 internationalized user interface
* Easy-to-use, the user interface is simple, but usable enough
* Desktop independent (surprise! Every component can be used without LXDE)
* Standard compliant, follows the specs on freedesktop.org
This package depends on minimal set of components (lxsession and openbox)
and contains all the session-specific configuration files required to
start a LXDE desktop session from a display manager such as GDM. Install
all the recommended packages as well to run a minimal LXDE session.
