• Cannot install lxde. Help.

    I installed AntergOS with Openbox DE. I want to install lxde.
    I did sudo pacman -S lxde … But an error message stops me from installing lxde.

    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo pacman -S lxde

  • @yajanbasel said in Cannot install lxde. Help.:


    sudo pacman -R antergos-openbox-meta is needed, as dependencies of it will be removed in your case.

  • Hi,

    You should install lxde-gtk3 instead of lxde

    sudo pacman -S lxde-gtk3


  • @karasu
    But lxde-gtk3 is not shown in pamac! Only in pacman…

  • @karasu
    Sorry, just noticed it is found in pamac groups (only).

  • LXDE also has problems installing on Manjaro. I made the bootable media and it wouldn’t load on my 11-year-old computer. I tested it on my newer laptop and it didn’t work there either. Maybe Arch just has bad compatibility with LXDE.
