Thank you very much, Leo Famulari! Yes, only 2 changes in config make my system
offers LXDE on login screen. These:
adding to (use-modules (gnu packages lxde))
and adding to (packages (cons* lxde))
But I have 4 troubles now.
First is that I have all DEs installed now, but I want only Xfce and LXDE.
I have 5 elements on login screen now:
- Xfce, as it was
- LXDE, as I wanted to add
Sorry, why? I do not need KDE, Gnome. I thought this config only adds LXDE.
Please, what is wrong in my config? I only added lxde, gedit, icecat to
(packages) list and (gnu packages lxde), (gnu packages gnuzilla) to
# cat /etc/config.scm
;; This is an operating system configuration template
;; for a "desktop" setup with GNOME and Xfce where the
;; root partition is encrypted with LUKS.
(gnu system nss)
(gnu packages lxde)
(gnu packages gnuzilla)
(use-package-modules certs gnome)
;; Use the UEFI variant of GRUB with the EFI System
;; Partition mounted on /boot/efi.
;; Specify a mapped device for the encrypted root partition.
;; The UUID is that returned by 'cryptsetup luksUUID'.
; (list (mapped-device
; (source (uuid "12345678-1234-1234-1234-hash888abc"))
; (target "my-root")
; (type luks-device-mapping))))
(file-systems (cons (file-system
(users (cons (user-account
(comment "bob is good too")
(supplementary-groups '("wheel" "netdev"
;; This is where we specify system-wide packages.
(packages (cons* nss-certs ;for HTTPS access
gvfs ;for user mounts
;; Add GNOME and/or Xfce---we can choose at the log-in
;; screen with F1. Use the "desktop" services, which
;; include the X11 log-in service, networking with
;; NetworkManager, and more.
(services (cons* (xfce-desktop-service)
;; Allow resolution of '.local' host names with mDNS.
The second problem is that in LXDE I cannot switch keyboard to another
language. I added applet 'Keyboard handler', configured it not to use system
configurations, added russian (and turkish to try), checked Left-Win and also
Alt-Shift for switch, but no keyboard keys, no mouse clicks to flag nothing
giving effect. I have only US keyboard. How to figure? May be, I need to add
other packages to config.scm like lxde-common, lxpannel, lxinput?
The third problem, when I add applet Volume control it does not appears. I need
something else to add to config? In Xfce I had nice pavucontrol applet on a
Th fourth is that on Xfce and LXDE I have no menu icons in video players, also
in xfce-terminal: http://0x0.st/sxlH.png http://0x0.st/sxkQ.png What to do?
I ask this cause last `guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm` worked too long
on my Lenovo G50-30 and I need exact instructions that were never described
specially for me.
