Fedora 12 LXDE Spin – Take two!

Finally the hard working people over at the Fedora project have released a working Fedora 12 Spin featuring LXDE! Christoph has the complete story behind the delay, never mind that though and go grab your copy at http://spins.fedoraproject.org/lxde/ (in the last couple of hours 60 other downloads have already occured).

Fedora 10 with LXDE

We are excited to see another distribution including LXDE. Fedora offers LXDE in its new versions arriving November 26 25, 2008.

This release of Fedora comes with an additional desktop environment named LXDE. LXDE is a new project that provides a lightweight, fast desktop environment designed to be usable and slim enough to keep resource usage low. To install the LXDE environment, use the Add/Remove Software tool or run:
su -c ‘yum groupinstall LXDE’
If you only need the base components of LXDE, install the lxde-common package:
su -c ‘yum install lxde-common’
(http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/…)

The Fedora packages are maintained by Christoph Wickert from Germany. Thanks for your contribution Christoph!
