Depends on whether you want a GTK GUI or not. Either will work, but the GTK one will need the GTK libraries installed which you might not want (but probably do).

So, basically, if you a re running a minimal LXDE system and don't want any bloat use the non GTK. If you want things to be prettier, use the GTK.
