View Full Version : Installing Lubuntu on Lxde

January 28th, 2015, 05:48 AM
I installed lxde 11 on my Samsung chromebook and it is very primitive looking. I would like to install lubuntu over lxde. Does anyone know if this is possible and how I should do it?

Welcome. Not knowing anything about lxde (it is not officially supported here) or what repositories it uses, I'm taking a guess, but in Ubuntu it would be:

sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

You could also install lubuntu-desktop from whatever package manager lxde uses. You then log out, choose the Lubuntu session from the Sessions pop-up, and log in. You will be in Lubuntu.

Your other option, of course, is a clean install of Lubuntu 14.04. Good luck whichever way you go.
