    That looks good. I'm looking to create a minimal Arch install on my pendrive (for 'maintenance' purposes, yeah, maintenance, that's right...) and this certainly seems very light.

    It seems that ubuntu LXDE repo doesn't have LXAppearance (LXDE icon&theme changer) yet.
    I have compiled the tgz to deb with checkinstall, and uploaded to Savefile.com

    EDIT:
    Download lxappearance.deb here: http://www.savefile.com/files/1475263
    (Thanks Ender Black for corrected the link.)

    This may be my new default since it loads much faster then gnome..i'll test it for a week and decide

    actually...I still can't get a window decoration other than the black bar regardless of the theme I select.

    One other thing...is there a way to run conky in the LXDE environment?

    this is a awesome DE, the only thing i dislike is that it uses pcmanfm, but its easily changable and not really that bad of a choice its just my personal prefference

    But for those who want to test this on a fresh install, install ubuntu server edition

    you can do these commands after install to get a fresh system with this DE

    sudo apt-get install xorg gdm

    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

    add deb http://people.linux.org.tw/~pcman/ubuntu/ ./

    to the sources.list

    ctrl+o to save, then ctrl+x to exit

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install lxde

    and this should work! just like any other DE
