Creating a openSUSE LXDE respin for some freinds/family

I dont see any official LXDE openSUSE support however I am thinking of making a LXDE respin for some people I know.
I am doing this because a few of my friends computers are a little old, and none of them like XFCE as I sampled it to them.
But LXDE seems a lot more popular with them, because its slim and simplistic.
But where do I start?
What do I need to install to help make this LXDE respin?

Hi
Get a login and use SUSE Studio and use the X11:lxde repository :slight_smile:

Cool, I requested an invite so hopefully I will get in soon :smiley:

Hi
I just built a VM with a minimal X install, with starting at runlevel
3.

  • Used zypper to add the repo
  • installed the LXDE pattern
  • modified the windowmanager to startlxde

Tried it out with init 5, all working except there is a bug with lxpanel
and the LXDE profile (netstat plugin). Sorted that and all is running
fine.

Just a slightly offtopic note in this thread, … if the idea of having LXDE included in the basic openSUSE installation (as an option) appeals to you, then do not forget to vote for it as a possible inclusion in a future openSUSE release via the openFATE tool: https://features.opensuse.org/307729

To vote one has to log in to openFATE, and then go to the above URL and select the UP arrow on the right side of the page.
