Hi,

I just installed LL. First I booted on the USB key and it used to look like LL - it was beautiful.

After install, it looks like a regular xfce desktop (except lite applications) : taskbar is on top of the creen, it looks as bad as usual xfce desktop... Looks like a theme is missing or not applied but where to fix it?

Thx.

OK I got the problem but no the solution :-(

My computer was first set up with ubuntu 20.04, then I switched to LL keeping the same user directory... SO with a new user it works as expected. But how to init my user dir with LL requred files?

Thx.

LL needs it's own user home, you can't use existing OS directories. Home needs to be formatted.

You're right! I created a test user and copied some folder from him into my own folder (some .gnome and .xfce4 directories) and now it works!
