Re: Lubuntu v. LXDE


First, I'm not asking to be antagonistic, just out of ignorance on the subject.

So there's no other integration behind the scenes (daemons, etc.);
it's just a selection of apps and a desktop background?

Doesn't vanilla openbox have the right-click menu? I thought the start
menu was an lxde-specific change, and there would be some way to get
it back since lxde uses openbox.
