Description Karl Mikaelsson cendio 2014-01-24 16:39:43 CET
Even though we solved bug 4739 we don't have a profile for LXDE, and not even a bug report about it.

> The "Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment" is an extremely fast-performing and 
> energy-saving desktop environment. Maintained by an international community of 
> developers, it comes with a beautiful interface, multi-language support, 
> standard keyboard short cuts and additional features like tabbed file browsing. 
> LXDE uses less CPU and less RAM than other environments. It is especially 
> designed for cloud computers with low hardware specifications, such as 
> netbooks, mobile devices (e.g. MIDs) or older computers.

Trying to employ tl-4.7.0 server on debian install with only LXDE desktop.

So, y'all got a profile scraped together in the last few years?

Please see this chapter in our Administrator's Guide for information on
how to add profiles:


In most cases all you need to know is the XDG session name for
LXDE. The link above details how to find this.

A profile for LXDE is now added. Looking at the code github, it seems like it is started the same way on all distribution platforms. But I have only tested on Fedora 25 so far.
Comment 6 Pierre Ossman cendio 2017-03-07 16:11:14 CET
Works well. Tested on Ubuntu 16.04.
Comment 7 Pierre Ossman cendio 2017-03-30 13:23:07 CEST
Doesn't work on Fedora 26. I can see the profile in GDM, but not ThinLinc.

False alarm. It was PyGlade issues on my machine.
