[solved] How to install LXDE on Waldorf

I installed LXDE via

sudo apt-get install lxde

Then startet it via terminal to test

sudo startlxde

After this I put it in the autostart via openboxautostart
Add this at the end of the file:

startlxde &

For another Docky or for Docky on Openbox alone add as written by
rhowaldt below

docky &

at the end of the autostartfile.
-----------------------------------ORIGINAL POST-------------------------------------
Hay there,

After installing Crunshbang I recognized OpenBox.
My Problem is that I want to place files on the desktop.
So I remembered LXDE and tried to install it via apt.
But I don't know how to start it everytime I boot.
Is there someone who knows a solution for installing and starting LXDE
or other components like xfdesktop4 --... I'm open to all solutions. so it
doesn't have to be lxde.

another problem I had was starting "DOCKY" on autostart.
When I start Docky via terminal it closes when closing terminal.
Is there a solution or a better dock?

Are you sad if you're not happy?
Are you running Windows when Linux got broken?
-> No! You'll fix it big_smile So be happy!


Be excellent to each other!

Re: [solved] How to install LXDE on Waldorf

desktop icons:

docky: when you want to start something from the terminal and don't want it to close with the terminal, add a & to your command.

sorry for brevity, there are 2 dogs on my lap, typing this with 1 hand..
