LXDE[1] is the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment. It is an excellent choice for older hardware or for users who want a complete desktop environment without all of the overhead required by KDE or GNOME. Since it is XDG-compliant, the PC-BSD® Control Panel, AppCafe®, and Life Preserver are available on the desktop and integrated into LXDE's menus. Figure 6.3a shows a screenshot of the default LXDE installation with the LXPanel open.

  • PCManFM[3]: found in Accessories → File Manager PCManFM. 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.

  • Leafpad[5]: a light-weight graphical text editor found in Accessories → Leafpad.
  • LXTerminal[6]: terminal emulator found in Accessories → LXTerminal.
