Hi ng0,

Indeed, not sure why.

I was able to reproduce the problem in a VM with the attached config.
It boils down to this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ /gnu/store/9fdxlzwbsfzhncwznlx2lrp8rdq61f7v-lxde-common-0.99.2/bin/startlxde 
cp: cannot stat '/etc/xdg/openbox/LXDE/rc.xml': No such file or directory
line 47: 
No such file or directory
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The ‘cp’ error seems harmless but the other one is obviously

Could you check what’s wrong with ‘startlxde’?
