Some cool news for any LXDE users.
The first one, LXDE developers finally started to develop their own Display Manager, that means that soon we’ll need no more the very heavy GDM or the no more developed SLIM.
That new DM is called (as you can think) LXDM and svn snapshot are now available in my home:anubisg1:LXDE repo, as soon it will be stable enought i’ll move it into X11:lxde.
(more info about LXDM available here: http://blog.lxde.org/?p=531
SLIM itself has been improved with a couple of patches and the logotrate support.
The second cool thing is a nice patch i got from a Slackware developer, it add trash support using the python trash-cli based on freedesktop.org standards. PCManFM with trash support is alread yavilable into X11:lxde and home:anubisg1:LXDE repos.
Some screenshots here:
Please consider that home:anubisg1:LXDE needs to be considered a development only repo. I experiment in my repo, and only when i think the changes are stable enought than i’ll move the into OFFICIAL X11:lxde repo.
