LXDE is the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment and will be one of the window managers available for selection during a PC-BSD 9.0 install. You can see screenshots at this page of the LXDE website.
The existing FreeBSD port was quite out of date so Kris spent some time last week updating the port and adding some missing components. Since LXDE will be a desktop environment option in PC-BSD 9.0, we encourage as many people as possible to test this desktop environment and report any bugs on the PC-BSD LXDE forum.
Early testers can install the port using pkg_add -r lxde-meta on a FreeBSD system or from within Ports Jail on a PC-BSD system. A PBI request was submitted this morning and we’ll announce once a PBI is ready for testing.
