brief memo for installing xfce 4.2 with graphical installer on ubuntu 7.10..

Hello fellow linuxers.

I am using Linux Mint Daryna 4.0 which uses the same packages as ubuntu 7.10.

I have installed xfce-desktop package which install the default xfce desktop version 4.1

for ubuntu 7.10.

On December 02 2007 was released version 4.2 of xfce.

From the few days that I have used xfce 4.1  I must say I am impressed by it's speed and responsiveness.

I 've never seen windows - file managers opening up so quick not with gnome nor with kde!

An besides I find it more user friendly too!

So yes there there is hope for Linux desktop with xfce.


So I am writing this memo because I plan to install xfce on all my pc's

(and other people pc's too!) .

So let's see the steps I took to install xfce 4.2.



1. Downloaded xfce 4.2 graphical installer from here http://www.xfce.org/download/


2. Basically I am writing this  for this command : (All requirements xfce4.2 installer needs to have)
So install:

sudo apt-get install libstartup-notification0-dev libvte-dev libhal-storage-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev libasound2-dev libxml2-dev libjpeg-dev


Hopefully after that all installer's requirements will be satisfied.

3. So start the installer as root.

su

chmod +x xfce4-4.4.2-installer.run

./xfce4-4.4.2-installer.run


Check if all requirements are met.

Press Next to choose over some features.

4. Options

libasound2-dev needs if you want to use alsa for the mixer .
This is an option in the first screen of the installer.




I also chose the option Extensive Optimizations and setup Display Managers.
Press Next

5. Enjoy while it's getting build

for other steps you have to take maybe to make xfce work.
Especially the sections for gdm or kdm.
If you have preinstalled xubuntu-desktop
I believe the xsession for the new xcfe desktop is added by the installer.
