I have install LXDE on Ubuntu 10.10. LXDE stands for 'Lightweight X Desktop Environment. This desktop environment is faster then Gnome and KDE desktop. It can run on older machines or on low end/ older hardware based computer. It has many difference then other desktop. Very speedy. Although development is on going process, many operating system publish their releases using LXDE. I use Lubuntu and Peppermint os many times and fall in love. Day by day this little desktop environment grub attention of many distro.

If you really like to try LXDE. Then use Synaptic Package Manager or Ubuntu Software Center. Run any of them and search with keyword "LXDE". Select all dependencies to download. Your new lightweight desktop environment depends on these dependencies to work properly.
