Installed LXDE Mini and it's still a winner. However - there is a little quirk with the workspace notifier which appears in the middle of the screen when changing to a different workspace. I like that one. With this install the notification stays on the desktop until I click with the mouse somewhere. Only then could I type something otherwise my keyboard would be locked for want of a better expression.
No biggie - just click ... but I like my keyboard and change workspaces via keyboard as well. This quirk means I need to grab the mouse every time I changed a workspace. This wasn't the case in previous installs. Any way I could get rid of this without removing my little notifications?
Oh - to make this a real challenge - this is intermittent - sometimes it does that some times it doesn't.
Another clue - pressing escape also removes the notifier.
