LXDE, Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment, is a desktop environment which is lightweight and fast. It is designed to be user friendly and slim, and keep the resource usage low. LXDE uses less RAM and less CPU while being a feature rich operating system. Because of the low usage of resources it also saves energy. We don't tightly integrate every component of LXDE. Instead, we try to make all components independent, so each of them can be used independently with few dependencies. This makes porting LXDE to different distributions and Unix systems easier. A good starting point is the General Information page, where you find information on system requirements and compatibility. You also find an overview of distributions including LXDE with installation instructions, plus more general installation instructions, information on LXDE components and our future plans on the wiki. More about LXDE on the website, the LXDE blogs, and in the LXDE forum.

LXDE designprinciper / Guidelines

  • If only several simple APIs of another big library are needed, try to extract them and add them to your program instead of depending on the whole library whenever possible. (Beware of license)
  • Only use libraries from other desktops when they are small or efficient enough and have few dependencies.
  • Only create a daemon if there is a really good reason.
  • Basic configuration options of applications should be editable via GUI whenever possible.
  • Keep the user interface simple and intuitive. Never design some geek-style GUI.
  • Consider the conventions of both GNOME and Windows, and try to follow the habit of most users. Do not deliberately make the GUI quite different only because you want to be different from Windows. Usability is always the top one concern. Windows might not be good in some areas, but like it or not, most computer users in the world get used to it. Trying to fight your users is apparently unwise.
  • Try to shorten the startup time since this greatly affect user experience.
  • Try to keep maximal compatibility with lower gtk+ versions (gtk+ 2.6 is preferred). Try to make features requiring higher gtk+ versions optional with proper conditional compilation and compatibility macros.Gtk+ version can be check in C program like this:
#if GTK_CHECK_VERSION( 2, 10, 0 )
    /* write some gtk+ 2.10+ specific stuff here */

Vårt mål är att förenkla för människor med lägre datorkraft tillgång till information. Många människor har inte möjligheten att lära sig engelska eller ett alternativt andraspråk, för dessa personer måste LXDE översättas tillmodersmålet för att de ska kunna ta del av LXDE. I översättningsprojektet har vi dessutom som mål att tillhandahålla dokumentation och resurser i så många språk som är möjligt. Läs vidare...


Ett uttalat huvudmål är att få LXDE att bli ett officiellt paket i så många Linux- och andra Unix-distributioner som möjligt. Hjälp till inom ramen för Paketeringsprojektet genom att informera och läsa på hur paket skapas för olika distributioner. Läs mer..
