XScreensaver

Coulden't gnome-screensaver easily be replaced with XScreensaver? XScreensaver has no gnome dependicies, and xscreensaver supports all the same screensavers that gnome-screensaver does.--Hunterm 21:40, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

Desktop

separeting desktop from pcmanfm can bring goot features to the desktop

  1. show mounted volumes
  2. grouping entries in separete frames (with caption and a bit of customizing)
  3. indipendent devolpment
  4. gives the user the choise which desktop and which filebrowser to use

and even more...

udisks

Please, keep udisks as an optional dependency.

udisks depend on policykit, and I just don't want this last software in my box, that for several reasons (uneeded daemon, unmanageable without to learn JS and I have other things to do, the inclusion of a JS interpreter). I understand the need of big corporations for features provided by udisks, but I just don't need it and don't want it.

Now, lxed is your baby, so you are free to do what you feel is the best for it. That is just my little comment. But I know that I am not the only one.--Dominique (talk) 16:44, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

It seam I am wrong on this. When not using udisks, libfm look like to depebd on gvfs with udisks or gdu support, and both of them will install polkit. When it work in my system with gvfs without udisks and gdu support, it is very easy to crash pcmanfm for me: it is just to left click on an usb drive, and unmount it from the contextual menu. pcmanfm crash every time. I will report this as a bug. If another partition is actve in the right panel, I can mount/unmount the same usb dive from the left panel, and pcmanfm doesn't crash.--Dominique (talk) 10:48, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
