Hi to all,
The question is: is it possible to have X11 with all libs and tools under Linux Lite.
I need to install a program, which demands such things like OSF.Motif commands, Locale, libraries, etc.
My little comp started with Linux Lite and I like it so much that expanded it with all accessible software for some functionalities from deb sources.
I have not  found X11R6 in the available binaries in the sources.
So perhaps it should be compiled from source, and installed in some place like /usr/local.
Has anyone tried, succeeded or failed, or has any idea on the topic or experience how to have full X11R6 in Linux Lite?
Asking for you help,
Jerzy

Have you tried doing this in a Virtualbox first?

Dear Jerry,
Thank you very much for your suggestion. I'll try to do so. However, I didn't compile full X11R6 because of some mistakes - perhaps I should use gcc 3.3; I read also in the readme files, that
X11R6 is ment to operate in main directories: /usr/X11R6, so if only code is compiled I'll try guest LinuxLite with X11R6.
Thank you very much,
Jerzy
