I am running with HDMI to a monitor. I installed LXDE and is seemed to go well. When I reboot I get the beagle in the upper left corner, but it transitions to the normal login screen. LXDE instructions say to select LXDE from the login screen menu, but there is no menu, all I can do is login and bash starts.
Which Display Manager tool did you install GDM/KDM or LightDM?
LightDM is what we use on the default images…
Did you install the core packages?
sudo apt install lxde-core
This is what I used:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install lxde lxde-core lxde-icon-theme
sudo shutdown -r now
So I think I installed the core packages. I will look into LightDM
sudo apt install xserver-xorg-video-fbdev x11-xserver-utils
and then set:
#/etc/X11/xorg.conf Section "Monitor" Identifier "Builtin Default Monitor" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Builtin Default fbdev Device 0" Driver "fbdev" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Builtin Default fbdev Screen 0" Device "Builtin Default fbdev Device 0" Monitor "Builtin Default Monitor" EndSection Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "Builtin Default Layout" Screen "Builtin Default fbdev Screen 0" EndSection
It turns out that LXDE wasn’t really installed. I re-installed it using what you suggested and it’s working great! From screenfetch the WM is OpenBox. Does xserver provide more features?
