Use a text editor to create a file:
Code: Select all
@lxpanel --profile LXDE
@pcmanfm --desktop --profile LXDE
@xscreensaver -no-splash


Name it autostart and put it (as root) into /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE. You will have to create (sudo mkdir) first any of the directories in this address that you removed. If you cannot access enough of your installed system to do this, then boot-up to your install disk system and do it from there. Be sure to put it in /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE on your hard drive.
