(Sorry for the inconvenience)


LXDE is the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment. It is an excellent choice for older hardware or for users who wish for a complete window manager without all of the overhead required by KDE or GNOME. Since it is XDG-compliant, the PC-BSD Control Panel, AppCafe™, and Life Preserver will be available on the desktop and will integrate into LXDE's menus.

Figure X.XX shows a screenshot of the default LXDE installation with the LXPanel open.

In addition to PC-BSD's utilities, LXDE provides the following utilities:

  • PCManFM: found in Utilities -> File Manager. A file manager with features like drag and drop, tabbed browsing, built-in file search, file association with default application, thumbnails for images, bookmarks, and support for non-UTF-8 encoded filenames.
  • LXPanel: desktop panel which is launched by clicking on the PC-BSD icon in lower right corner of desktop. To configure the panel, right-click the PC-BSD icon and select "Panel Settings" or "Add/Remove Panel Items" from the right-click menu.
  • GPicView: fast image viewer found in Graphics -> Image Viewer.
  • LXTerminal: terminal emulator found in Utilities ->LXTerminal
  • LXTask: task manager and system monitor found in System -> Task Manager.
  • Openbox: the window manager used by LXDE. You can configure settings such as themes, appearance, mouse, and margins by going to Settings -> Openbox Configuration Manager.
