RPI3 Jessie - Pixel but doesn't start-still LXDE/LXpanel

Thu Dec 22, 2016 7:54 pm

RPI3 with Jessie - Pixel is installed but won't start either initially or startx from cmd line - both start LXDE/LXPanel. I've googeled everything available. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Interesting ... couldn't find /usr/share/pixel-wallpaper/ directory. Does this indicate that PIXEL was not installed correctly?

How did you determine that it has been installed?

Not likely.

We need details...

Where did you get the Raspbian Jessie with Pixel image (and what is the filename)?

Did you verify the SHA-1 hash (checksum)?

How did you extract the image file?

How did you write the image file to your SD card?

How is your Raspberry Pi3 set up (screen+keyboard+mouse, headless SSH, etc.)?

If there was a guide you used, post a link.
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?

Thanks for the reply!

Fortunately I have this one wrapped NOW...apparently there was an issue with installing the Pixel and a conflict with another installed desktop package. It was an older Rasbian, originally Wheezy updated to Jessie that I was adding Pixel to. When I installed the pixel updates it appeared that it was ok but apparently not when I removed and re-installed them I found an error.

Thank you again for the reply!
