    Debian + LXDE = problems!


    I just discovered how much Debian when paired with LXDE sucks!

    I thought it was a good match, low resource DE with Debian, supposed to be stable and secure, right?

    Debian Squeeze and LXDE is one big BUG! What garbage!

    Too many damn bugs.

    I installed Synaptic Package Manager but it went into three places in the menu but only one of them works. So, how do I know which one to choose? Really crazy.

    Also, I cannot mount my drive when connected via usb. But, my laptop only has usb ports and no eSATA.

    I now have to look for a new OS and DE because this one is a disaster.

    Before ranting at debian in general, why don't you try it with one of the stable releases?

    I've never used Squeeze but LXDE works just fine on Lenny.
