take everything to the macro then divide it back down, what are you looking to accomplish is generally my first response when people want something i.e. you don't need a bus you need to move 15 soldiers with gear. What do you want to do, not how it's a distinction that people in operations have to learn to make in everything. The MDMP Military Decision Making Process all part of FM 101-5 it teaches you to think outside you functional area do you need a tank there or do you need fire support. Are you really looking for a WM or you looking for a light weight system..

Remember the talk about Arch in the other thread my intent was to find something different and I was disappointed when I found the same old Linux after a 40 minute install. Now I'm playing in PCBSD because it's different..

So basically what you're saying is that because you're unable to explain what you want clearly and using the right terminology, you assume that nobody can? So you then make assumptions based on what you think they might have meant and then go on to answer a completely different question. Gotchya thumb.gif

For what it's worth, having to understand people's intent isn't limited to your line of work. IT is one of the worst industries for having to do that because of the reasons I was trolling in the previous paragraph; because most people don't understand what the hell their talking about. In this instances though, I think the OP did since he gave examples of what he was looking for and it didn't include the suggestions you were giving. Which leads me back to my original conclusion about your suggestion. But we could argue like this all day and never agree tongue.gif

I made the assumption that he wanted fast and light because he said that. LXDE is not an option in any of the Ubuntu's I've seen he may not know. He's speaking from his lane with his glasses I offered a solution that would provided him light and fast and a start to stepping him away. He may know and it may be redundant.

He wanted quick and fast I gave him quick and fast. He wanted a WM you gave him that. He gets all the information in half a dozen posts.

OP here is my LXDE on OpenBox Arch install on the linux lappy.

it has the benefit of being light without the OpenBox issues i.e, setting a path for the wallpaper then adding to startup.

Actually toyed around with openbox & lightdm last night a bit. Got it up and running, even had a wallpaper set up. But for my uses I'm afraid pure WM is probably to much work that I don't really have lots of time for : / Will likely stick with a DE, downloading lxde debian now.

Responses much appreciated.

Did you try Enlightenment?

IceWM is quite functional as well from what I remember

If this is going on a portable I've found laptop-mode.service in my archbang to be the best for my battery. That mode may be available for the other distros I just dunno but plan 9 might. Either way Archbang with laptop-mode.service gave me an extra hour over any other distro and power management setup.

Not on a portable and I will definitely keep that in mind for the future (soon I hope). I will admit that I currently have no idea how to do that however it is not an issue at the present.
