    LXDE issues


    Well, i just finished up setting up arch the way i want it. going for a bit of a lightweight build. so i decided to install lxde and following the wiki on arch, i came up with an interesting error. when i tried to copy for files and place them into a root the folder, i get a message saying ~/.config/openbox does not exist.

    Isn't that the root folder O.O

    Doing a basic cp will not create directories. Just make it yourself first.

    Code:
    mkdir -p ~/.config/openbox

    I needed to reboot in order to transfer the files there. Igot that part down.

    After following the wiki on how to install lxde to boot from startup, i see no avail. Everything i turn it on, i cant run the startx command, some pacman.conf file is missing...at least thats what i think it says. I have to run it through the init session startlxde

    last thing ill ask you, promise

    Without knowing what error you're getting exactly it's hard to comment.

    pacman.conf is the config file for Arch's package manager, pacman. It doesn't have anything to do with booting or with logging into the x server. It will mean you won't be able to install new packages.

    I recommend going through the Beginner's Guide and making sure you've got everything you need. Most of the time it's just some small thing or another that you miss doing.
