Install the LXDE desktop

To install the lxde desktop system run the following command in the terminal

$ sudo yum install @lxde-desktop


$ sudo yum groupinstall lxde-desktop

This will install the LXDE desktop. After the installation just logout. On the login page under the Sessions option there shall be an entry for LXDE Desktop. Setup the LXDM display manager

The login page that comes up is either GDM or KDM. Since you switched to the LXDE desktop system you might as well want to switch the display manager to LXDM (which is again faster than GDM or KDM but provides the same functionality).

Edit the /etc/sysconfig/desktop file

$ sudo leafpad /etc/sysconfig/desktop

Add the following line to it


Save and close. Now restart Fedora and the login page that comes up would be LXDM and it should be much faster.

Oh, it's easy, just run 'sudo yum install -y @lxde', all are OK!

To correct your grub2 configuration, please read this page:

It should have nothing to do with the lxde installation at all.
