Lightweight DE (LXDE LXQT) for CentOS 7

Post by simon_lefisch » 2018/04/18 18:53:49

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has been able to install a lightweight desktop environment (like LXDE or LXQT) on a CentOS 7 minimal system? I've been using CLI for some time but would like to have a DE installed for certain tasks. I found https://www.centos.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=47088 for installing a minimal GNOME desktop but would like to try the above mentioned DE's. I fairly comfy with Linux so any help/guides anyone could provide would be very helpful. Thanks!
Hardware:
Supermicro X10SRi-F mobo
E5-2620v4 CPU
8GB RAM (for now)
1x 250GB SSD (OS)
2x 4TB HDD RAID 1 (storage)
