I really like this package. Thanks for the overlay. I'm really surprised at the functionality and good, clean looks they've achieved while still maintaining a light footprint.

I was surprised to find it even handles compiz-fusion, so I can have my wobbly-windows. :)

And I had a fully populated menu right out of the box.

I'm also impressed by the file manager package and the tabbed terminal, both light and functional.

I installed just the packages that had discrete releases, and didn't use any -9999* packages, and my setup seems functional. So I was up and running with just these 10 packages (although I may have already had many dependancies installed)

lxde-base/lxappearance-0.2
lxde-base/lxde-common-0.3.2.1
lxde-base/lxpanel-0.3.8.1
lxde-base/lxrandr-0.1
lxde-base/lxsession-lite-0.3.6
lxde-base/lxtask-0.1
lxde-base/lxterminal-0.1.3
media-gfx/gpicview-0.1.10
x11-misc/pcmanfm-0.5
x11-wm/openbox-3.4.6.1

Thanks again.

Got problem installing the live ebuild from lxde overlay.

Seems that the make process failed due to borked pt_PT.po file.

Does anybody have ebuild patch for this problem?

Code:
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `pt_PT.gmo', needed by `all-yes'.  Stop.
make[2]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/duckz/portage/portage/lxde-base/lxpanel-9999-r1/work/lxpanel-9999/po'


this problem occurs to lxpanel and lxapperearance

Might I have just a little question? LXDE is currently masked (at least for x86) in Portage (without any overlays). Why? Is it serious? Is it safe to unmask it? And are all necessary tools available in Portage - without adding the overlay? Or is it just easier/better to use the overlay? Thanks!

LXDE is not masked, it is just keyworded for ~x86 (testing branch). Nothing serious, I just haven't had time for it lately, but that should change now. So the version that is in portage should be marked stable soonish. In the meantime it is safe to keyword those packages and use them, they should not give any problems on a stable system.

For the version in portage, all necessary components are in portage, no overlay needed. The overlay does give the benefit of newer code, but there may be new parts missing. I hope to get this updated within the next few weeks as well.

I'm building an LXDE environment on my old laptop from scratch, and I ran into some problems with some of the live ebuilds;

1) It's a brand new Gentoo 64 bit install.
2) I've added the LXDE overlay, and the keyword file from the overlay to my system.
3) After the kernel, tools, and X Windows system installations, I've managed to install all of the packages that are listed when you do an emerge @lxde-full, with the exception of lxdm.
4) Although I had to install the latest non-9999 version of 3 of the apps,
5) LXDM is working on my system right now, (but probably not correctly). For example while I could emerge the pcmanfm-9999 live ebuild, when clicking on its icon, or running it from the command line, nothing will happen.

Here are the relevant pastebin pages of system output;

emerge --info
emerge lxde-common
emerge lxdm
emerge openbox
emerge obconf

Thanks for any help in sorting this out.

Jason

You might try building your lxde environment with the non-9999 ebuilds first so you can see what things look like on the more stable ebuilds. Then start adding in the -9999 ebuilds.

The ebuilds in the lxde overlay might be getting a bit stale, since the developer who was maintaining those ebuilds has backed away from Gentoo for a while.

Also, there can be important configuration settings and patches incorporated into the discrete release ebuilds that are omitted from the live ebuilds since there code base is a moving target.

Thanks. I was going to try that as my fallback. So I removed the lxde overlay, the overlay lxde-live keywords file, and then had to remove a couple of live ebuilds manually, (lxconf, lxnm-applet). I then did an emerge --update --world which downgraded all of the other lxde components to the ones in the portage tree, and then rebooted. So now the system appears to be working more or less correctly. pcmanfm is working, and once I installed the nm-applet, NetworkManager is working on my system too. So in summary, I was able to install LXDE best by not using the lxde overlay and the set file, but instead using the standard portage tree, and the lxde-meta package.

Thanks again..
