I use lxde desktop. how change my source eselect profile to lxde gentoo or funtoo or sabayon?
because in eselect profile calculate linux exist desktop gnome,xfce,kde

XFCE and LXDE at 99.9% using the same USE-flags. The software they also have similar requirements - fast, low system requirements, etc. You can take as a basis for distribution CLDX and remove XFCE from it.

Add in the file “/etc/make.conf” this line:


Then update the packages with the new flags:

emerge -uDNa world

XFCE is no longer in the dependencies, and it can be deleted:

emerge -ac

thanks for guide,which choice in eselect profile list:

By default


thanks for guide,
I used Calculate Linux Desktop Gnome and now use Lxde desktop,when choice eselect profile CLDX and use command emerge -uDNa world encounter to this problem:

emerge -uDNa world

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies… done!

!!! The ebuild selected to satisfy “>=media-libs/phonon-4.4.3” has unmet requirements.

  • media-libs/phonon-4.5.1-r1::gentoo USE="(-aqua) -debug -gstreamer -pulseaudio -vlc" CDISTRO=“CLDX desktop”

The following REQUIRED_USE flag constraints are unsatisfied:
any-of ( aqua gstreamer vlc )

(dependency required by “kde-base/kdelibs-4.7.4” [installed])
(dependency required by “kde-base/okular-4.7.4” [installed])
(dependency required by “selected" [set]) (dependency required by "world” [argument])

You are invited to select, through which you will play a sound. In CLD, we use gstreamer. But what is selected in the profile of CLD does not affect the profile CLDX. Therefore, to solve the problem, specify the flag for the package:

echo media-libs/phonon gstreamer >>/etc/portage/package.use/custom

thanks for guide,my problem is solve.
