the best place for your questions is the Fedora LXDE mailinglist at
- but I'm going to
respond to your questions here nevertheless. :)

I used to run F-15 LXDE on my notebook. the LXDE Panel was 0.56. I
so many issues with it on my system, I had to install the XFCE panel,
and a few other XFCE dependencies (e.g. Thunar). I am not running a
light LXDE DE anymore, which I miss.
For the record: There was not much for me to do as your issues were rare
and hard to reproduce.
How about F-17 LXDE? Are the panel bugs fixed?
F15 had 0.5.6 as latest version, F17 comes with 0.5.8. I just built
0.5.9 for all branches from F15-rawhide. Please test it.
And what's the minimum RAM requirement?
According to the release notes it is still 768 MB . I am a little
surprised because I thought that it was just an anaconda bug in F16 that
cause this high requirement and I expected that bug to be fixed. Seems
that did not happen, but IIRC it should install on 640 MB, too.
If the F-17 LXDE feedback is good, I will give it a try. If the
is still so problematic on some machines, I will install the XFCE
Spin this time.
Long story short: The panel has improved but is still buggy. Please give
the F17 spins a try, update it completely and if you are still unhappy,
you can switch to Xfce easily with yum and without re-installing.
