I use Lubuntu 13.10 and start default with "text".

When i need to use GUI, startx didn't work, but "service lightdm start" is worked.

How to use startx with LXDE?

Thank You!


As stated in https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/LXDE#Console

To use startx, you will need to define LXDE in your ~/.xinitrc file:

exec startlxde

If you want to run startx at boot automatically, take a look at the Starting X at boot guide.

  • Thank you so much! It's worked! But when startlxde, it's i think a simple one of the default lubuntu's interface. If i want to use default Lubuntu's interface which command should i use? '"startlightdm?' – tuanbo91 Dec 17 '13 at 2:50
  • Sorry, I don't know. I don't use LUbuntu but my guess is that you are not into a "simple" version of LUbuntu, but in the normal one. Why do you assume you are into a simpler interface? – hytromo Dec 17 '13 at 2:58
  • askubuntu.com/questions/96861/… I think this is my problem, but i can't use command "startlubuntu" in xinitrc file :D – tuanbo91 Dec 17 '13 at 3:29
