Package: task-lxde-desktop
Severity: wishlist

I have just did a test installation of debian wheezy/testing.
During installation, I didn't choose any x packages to be installed.
After installation, I installed the package xdm for a graphical
login manager and then the lxde meta package.
Everything works fine so far, lxde desktop environment seems really
cool to me, but there is no webbrowser installed by default.
Maybe you want to include one?
There is a "Webbrowser" button in the lxde panel, but it has
no function.
If you want to save space and keep the lxde environment small,
you could include the dillo webbrowser as a minimalistic solution:
I installed it (xdm and lxde packages were already installed, as
wrote above) and only the package libflkt1.3 was additionally
added by dependancy.
Installing dillo (plus the libflkt1.3), resulted in the additional 
use of 2688 kByte on harddisk here (according to apt-get output).

So long

task-lxde-desktop depends on task-desktop, which recommends iceweasel.
task-lxde-dekstop recommends lxde, which recommends iceweasel.
Either of these is sufficient to get iceweasel installed by default
by tasksel.

The original bug reporter was not clear his installation; it's not clear
if he used tasksel at all, or perhaps installed the task with recommends
