By: dennyhalim Sat, 15 Aug 2009 09:42:42 +0000 hi Andrea,
i’m very honored to be in your team.
just tell me what i need to do…

since you also maintain openSUSE education,
please test my kidSUSE if you have time…


By: Anubisg1 Fri, 14 Aug 2009 11:09:56 +0000 Hi Denny.

i’m testing your last build, you did a great job, i found a couple of issues i think easy to fix.

any way, will be my pleasure to have you in our LXDE team, what do you think about it?

i’m still not able to have slim autologin working, but the package i’m working on, provides an init 5 starting script plus an “openSUSE” theme.

let me know if are interested to join your forces to us (your live cd with some improvments may become the official LXDE openSUSE based live cd) 😉

By: dennyhalim Fri, 14 Aug 2009 10:34:02 +0000 hi Andrea,

i use lxde a lot. in fact, i setup few guides for lxde minimal install on few distros here:

and i also build lxde livecd using suse studio.
i choose a blue theme for my livecd, so that logo suites my theme.

imho, the major problem i have working with lxde is that the shutdown/reboot/etc need gdm to work correctly.
and gdm is very big and does not suite the idea of lightning fast lxde.
it’s like a horse dragging an elephant…

if i may suggest.
first thing to do is make shutdown/reboot/etc works without gdm.
use xdm/slim or even qingy. anything but gdm/kdm or other elephants…

currently, i’m using mingetty autologin combine with .bashrc to automatically startx.


By: Anubisg1 Sat, 01 Aug 2009 22:57:50 +0000 if i find a good solution for a Login Manager, yes i’ll create it. actually i don’t like slim and use “startx” is not an option for me

By: ElCheVive Fri, 17 Jul 2009 19:46:54 +0000 Hi Andrea,

You should post a calling at opensuse-artwork and opensuse-marketing mailling list.



By: Andrea Florio Fri, 17 Jul 2009 15:20:47 +0000 Yes you are right, i notice that one hour ago 😛 the cutted image is already in obs, and obs build is running on my pc right now 😉

This is IMHO just a workaround any way, i really believe that we need a more custom branding, so if any of you wants to help us, well you are welcome.


p.s. if you some minutes, can you check X11:lxde failure and try to fix them? (all gcc post build checks)

Haven’t you noticed that the original logout banner is actually cropped 352×125 region from the blue wallpaper? 🙂 I prepared the green logout banner by cutting the rectangle from the green wallpaper you seem to be using. You can download it here:

But if someone is willing to create the unique openSUSE LXDE wallpaper and logout banner, it would be even more great!
