Linux Mint 11 LXDE review

Filed under
Linux

Linux Mint is a desktop-centric distribution based on Ubuntu Desktop, and Linux Mint LXDE is the edition that uses the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment (LXDE). The latest release, Linux Mint 11 LXDE, was released August 16, 2011.

The installation image is a Live CD, and installation may only be started from the Live environment. Shown below is the boot menu.

Desktop: LXDE is a low resource-consumption desktop environment. Just like Xfce, it is fast and very responsive. The menu style is the classical type. Linux Mint’s mintMenu application is available for installation, but it appears that it is not compatible with LXDE. mintMenu is a menu style similar to Lancelot, a menu application for the K Desktop Environment.
