    hi all

    might sound like a stupid question ,but , is xubuntu 20.04 the same as ubuntu 20.04 but just with the xfce desktop environment?

    Same base, different DEs and optimizations.

    The developers of these flavours have a large degree of independence from Canonical the sponsor of Ubuntu.

    If I understand the above explanations where does LXLE fit in if not an actual Ubuntu flavor.

    No, LXLE is a Ubuntu non-official derivative distro. LXDE is the Desktop Environment.

    Re: xubuntu

    I can't install xubuntu 20.04, installer keeps crashing on me, it may be this bug. I don't know of a workaround.
    I tried to install it on an old Dell latitude E5510 for a friend and gave up after a few trials. The machine is old, a graphically non demanding desktop is preferred and my friend likes a classical Windows layout.

    Since I never like Lubuntu or LXLE and this machine has a beefed up 8 G of ram, I tried Linux Mint instead. It installed without a hitch and looks a lot prettier (always think Xubuntu has a very ugly implementation of xfce, but then beauty is in the eyes of the beholder ..) Next will try Ubuntu mate.

    Re: xubuntu

    Tried LXLE many years ago, absolutely hated it. It was basically Lubuntu with extended support period and a lot of junks preinstalled and ppa preactivated. I don't mind ppas provided I have added them myself so I know exactly what the problems may be should something goes wrong. Preinstalling a lot of junks defeats the purpose of a light, stripped down distro. Maybe it has changed now.
