    [SOLVED] Install LXDE/XFCE onto Debian


    Hi

    I want to install LXDE or maybe XFCE onto Debian 5.0.5(going to install using the netinst disk).

    Is there any way to download the complete LXDE package and then move it to another computer using a CD and install it there?
    The other computer is really old and does not have a LAN card at the moment so no internet, also no DVD only a CD drive.

    I found lxde.sourceforge.net/install.html the problem is that I will have to download and install each package individual which sounds like a lot of work is there an easier way?

    Can I maybe download one of the CD images from dimage.debian.org/cdimage/squeeze_di_alpha1/i386/bt-cd/ and if yes which one?

    This one should do the trick.
    It is a whole CD, not the Netinst one.

    Code:
    debian-506-i386-xfce+lxde-CD-1.iso 04-Sep-2010 21:35  647M
    Debian GNU/Linux -- You know you want it.

    Sorry, I looked at the list and only saw a long list of isoís with numbers

    debian-505-i386-CD-1.iso 26-Jun-2010 20:40 647M
    debian-505-i386-CD-10.iso 26-Jun-2010 20:40 645M
    debian-505-i386-CD-11.iso 26-Jun-2010 20:40 349M
    debian-505-i386-CD-12.iso 26-Jun-2010 20:41 600M
    ....

    I didnít notice the xfce+lxde-CD-1.iso at the bottom.

    Thanks this is exactly what I needed, downloading now!

    FYI, you can create a CD/DVD set of the Debian repositories, allowing easy installation of packages on your offline machine.
