Debian and installing LXDE (Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment)

This is the second part of my Raspberry PI posts, the first covered the installation of Debian on to a virtual machine.  This this post I’ll be getting the fresh install to include a lightweight desktop called LXDE 

So first up your Debian and login

Here is the set of command you need to type to get LXDE up and running:

su root
apt-get install lode xorg
apt-get install server-xorg-video-all

One last thing I’ll show you is installing packages, as we’ll be using the Raspberry PI we’ll be using the Aptitude which is an old-fashioned GUI interface to assist in installing packages


So that’s it for today, you have a good looking interface and the ability to install packages
