   I selected LXDE at the GDM. Logged in. Rebooted. The LXDE was still
   selected when
   I logged in a second time.
   In my system I have a hidden file, which stores my desktop selection
   to remember it:

   $ cat $HOME/.dmrc
   [Desktop]
   Session=LXDE

   first time I ever try LXDE and is indeed quite fast.


If only I could get root to work then, you'll notice if you logged as root, it doesnt save the session even if that file is there.  Also from my previous post, it should have been PREFERRominED=/usr/bin/startlxde

 
but why login as root? why not use 'su' or 'sudo', logging in as root all the time isn't recommended

oh no, I thought this one might be coming, but anyways i'm happy to answer your question.  I found that because of what I am usually doing using su is a huge hassle, almost everything I do needs to be root, and there are reasons why I would want to do that.  I agree with not allowing root by default, but its not actually for everyone.
