Yeah, I wanted to know if it is worth the hassle. And now I have already
spent 30 minutes trying to set it up under LXDE ;)

I think LXDE uses Openbox, which uses GTK and I have Epiphany and GDM
installed, which almost pulled in all the stuff from GNOME.

$ sudo aptitude install gnome-osd
$ sudo vim /etc/default/eeepc-acpi-scripts
$ cat /etc/default/eeepc-acpi-scripts
# by default OSD output of function keys is disabled because it's too slow
# set to yes if you want fancy osd overlayS
$ sudo invoke-rc.d acpid restart # I do not know if that was needed.
