    Lightbulb 12.04: howto change lightdm to lxdm as default and unique desktop

    Hi,

    I experimented some issues with new lubuntu's 12.04 lightdm. I think it runs more slow than with the lxdm.

    So I would like to share with you how I change the default desktop with autologin, language switcher with Alt+Shift (implemented in lxpanel), and without desktop (I use conky in background).

    This is not a sexy howto, but I think that could help to someone.

    remember!
    $ => run command as user
    # => run command as root (or sudo <command>)

    Alt+F2 and go to lxterminal

    Install lxdm and LXDE environment
    Code:
    # sudo apt-get install lxdm lxde
    Select lxdm as default desktop when appear a menu

    Remove lightdm
    Code:
    # sudo apt-get remove lightdm notification-daemon
    is not really necessary to delete notification-daemon but in one computer take me "errors" at startup, so...

    copy the style of autostart applications of Lubuntu in LXDE
    /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart
    /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart

    Personally, I use LXDE profiles instead Lubuntu profiles
    This are the lines for:
    Code:
    # leafpad /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart
    and put this:
    Code:
    @lxpanel --profile LXDE
    @xscreensaver -no-splash
    @xfce4-power-manager
    @pcmanfm --desktop --profile LXDE
    @/usr/lib/policykit-1-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1
    @setxkbmap -option grp:alt_shift_toggle "es,us"
    delete ~/.dmrc, is needed to do default desktop LXDE
    Code:
    $ rm ~/.dmrc
    autologin:
    Code:
    $ leafpad /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf
    and in line of autologin add your user
    Code:
    autologin=youruser
