I am currently running Debian Wheezy with XFCE installed from a Debian Live ISO
I am thinking of replacing this with a minimal install and adding LXDE or alternatively no DE but using Openbox window manager (as done in Crunchbang). I am trying to get as light as I can but without losing too much functionality .
Doesn anyone know how to add a custom menu entry to the root of the main menu in lxde. I do know how to add a custome menu_entry, as in a new category or add sub-menus. But I want to add "run, terminal, web-broser, file-manager" etc.... to the top of the main menu, as toplevel entries... In xfce4 you have the "include X-Xfce_Toplevel" category that lets you do this.
After my last update I'm no longer getting the Openbox menu when I right click on my desktop, but instead I'm getting the LXDE menu. During the update Openbox was upgraded to version 3.5.2-1.I tried going to desktop settings from the LXDE menu and tried both checking and unchecking the option to show menu provided by windows manager, but this hasn't helped.
I have F11 running on an MSI wind. I installed KDE and then downloaded LXDE and have been using it for a few days. All of the sudden LXDE panel and a program called GTK-gnash started eating up all my cpu. So, I stopped the processes and restarted the desktop via CTL-ALT_BACKSPACE and rebooted. Now I cant open anything in the fedora menu, no programs, nothing comes up.

It`s much easier than most debian lxde-distros.
After hours and hours of hard work I can now all tell you with a lot of pride that a first version of an installer for Linux Mint LXDE based on Debian Lenny is a fact. This means that this is the first official installer of Linux Mint for PowerPC. For the moment only a 32-bits version is available as I don't have a 64-bits machine to test.
G'day - I tinkered with LXDE last night but came back to KDE, however I think I've broken something! See this picture ... :
for proof of what I now get on my KDE desktop (I moved the left edge of the KDE bar to the right so you can see the LXDE bar beneath). Both bars work fine (though I can't launch anything from the LXDE one because there's no menu widget there).
