## New Business - (gl)What to do with the wiki? We need a wiki wisperer! - (plasma) Leave link to wiki off of the ISO docs. If in the future we manage to get the wiki into a good state, we can add a link to it on the website. - (gl)LXDE? - (fsr) it's only in the DVD, and doesn't show in tasksel - we removed it for ascii release. - (fsr) Attempts to add lxde to std system are thwarted by dependency hell.
- (LeePen) I have just tried this. On an existing elogind based beowulf VM ```apt-get install lxde policykit-1``` guides apt to find a reasonably sane solution (150+ new packages). Alternatively ```apt install lxde libpolkit-backend-consolekit-1-0``` converts to a consolekit based solution (168 new packages).
I think the reason why apt finds this quite so awkward is because of lxsession-logout which recommends consolekit | systemd. (That seems very odd! Debian bug [#952679](https://bugs.debian.org/952679) submitted)
However, because this is a recommends dependency problem, ```apt install --no-install-recommends lxde``` seems to work around it.
- (fsr-update) I installed elogind first. Then I was able to install lxde. I got the full desktop, elogind was replaced with consolekit. Everything works: reboot/shutdown, mount usb as user, synaptic-pkexec.
