Subject: Meta package lxde installs incomplete LXDE environment
Date: Tue, 25 Dec 2012 18:05:57 +0100
Package: lxde
Version: 4+nmu1
Severity: normal

I tried to install LXDE using "apt-get install lxde". This however,
results in a very incomplete desktop:

I have the standard blue LXDE background pictures, a desktop link
called "Home.desktop" and a trash can icon. 

But no taskbar or start menu is displayed!

This can't be correct? 

(lxlauncher and lxtask are in status "pn", because I tried to purge
all LXDE package to validate, whether this isn't a issue with some
broken config file of mine)
