Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I didn't actually know whether to ask here or on the main stackoverflow page, but since this is a linux-specific question here goes :
I have recently installed LXDE as an alternative to the Unity Desktop Environment. I mainly use it for web design/development. I was surprised to see that some CSS3 selectors (such as nth-of-type(n)) do not render properly in chromium while using the LXDE, whereas they render perfectly well in the same install in a Gnome 2 fallback or Unity session, or even in the lxde session on Firefox.
My question is how does the desktop environment affect CSS default values, and if there is a way to tackle this problem (A more thorough CSS universal reset comes to mind, but i'm not sure yet)

I do not know the answer, but am interested in the question. –  bodhi.zazen Dec 17 '11 at 14:44
Does compositing affect this? because LXDE makes use of no composite software whereas Unity and Gnome 3 fallback make use of Compiz and Mutter respectively. –  Uri Herrera Dec 17 '11 at 16:49
