I installed it:
LXDE comes by default with the window manager Openbox.
Because I find it difficult to configure, I decided to replace it with IceWM;
which I already got configured in my box.
I went to /usr/local//etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/desktop.conf as ROOT and
and replaced the line:
I got all my IceWM keybindings
To start it from my .xinitrc:
And voilà !

The sound volume keybindings in IceWM do not work too well.
The LXDE wiki states that you can replace Openbox with Icewm, Fluxbox, and Xfwm.
Being the way I am, I replaced IceWM with my other window manager JWM.
I rebooted, and have being using LXDE for a few hours without problems,
I am going to wait for a few days, see what happens.
LXDE with JWM as window manager

Another good thing about it: you don't have to use the apps that come with LXDE, for example, I use roxterm, xfe and mirage, instead of lxterminal, pcmanfm, and gpicview. It's all in my JWM keybindings.

Solved the sound problem with IceWM, put it back in LXDE, and everything is back to normal.

Just for the records: Could you post here what you did to fix the sound? It's always a good idea to document such solutions. You never know who might be searching for that or a related issue in the future.

Of course, sorry about that.
There was a quotation mark missing from the Sound Volume set of keybindings.
Code: Select all
key "Alt+Ctrl+KP_Divide" aumix -v -5 # lower volume
key "Alt+Ctrl+KP_Multiply" aumix -v +5 # raise volume
