Elyssa XFCE CE

Postby merlwiz79 on Wed May 14, 2008 7:16 pm

I am Currently working on the next version of XFCE CE.
702MBs is the current and I haven't gotten all the updates from Clem yet.(as the main isn't stable yet)
This is the current alpha and seems ok so far.(have to check for changes in Xubuntu to make sure everything will work.)

The size is still over 700MBs so I need to find what needs to be removed.(have removed old wallpapers and still over 700MBs)

I most likely won't have a beta release for some time.
The main is going to have a second Beta and after that we will have all the info on the changes.

I am having a problem with Firefox, it doesn't know how to open any files and just wants to save them.(Example won't open a .mint with mintInstall)
KDE CE beta has the same problem at the moment.

Gnormalize has been updated and I have to make a .deb for it.

Editing mintConfig-xfce to added the changes for programs that have been replaced.

Made a GDM theme for people with multiple users:

Nice!
Have you found the time to look at the "SAM-menu-solution" I mentioned earlier?

It's using a plugin called xfce4-xfapplet-plugin to run the Gnome menu on the xfce panel.
This makes it use more memory and is slower to get the menu running when you login.
Also it can crash and then you have no menu.(unless you add the xfce menu)

I can get it to work like they did.
It would be missing all the xfce only applications.(most can be found in the Control Center for xfce)

I wish I could port it to xfce as a xfce menu and not a gnome one. :(

It causes to many problems to use.

I see, let's hope something more useful turns up...

Well I am just under 700MBs.
I am thinking of getting ride of Sunbird and replacing it with lighting-extension for Thunderbird.
Also I didn't install everything that's on the main.(low on space)
Will see what I still can.

Great news!
I second the replacement of sunbird!
But then again, what's wrong with Orage, the latest version has some really nice features and a clean layout.

Orange is installed by default as well.
Sunbird 0.8 is in the Elyssa repos too.(it takes up 28MBs on the Live CD)

I have always been curious why Sunbird was on it, not Evolution or the Thunderbird with the add on? I do like having email and calendar all in one app. The Sunbird with thunderbird separate kept me away from using the email to much.

Does Evolution take more space, requiring more lib's from gnome? Or is there other reasoning?

Is the 3d desktop being kept out of XFCE 5? ( I like it without the graphics personally, more XFCE / light weight orientated).

Thanks for all the hard work. I wish there was more I could do to help with Mint XFCE, myself and others I know like it far above the mainstream distro (not that that is bad, all mints I have used are great!).

If you like email and calendar in one try looking at Spicebird. viewtopic.php?f=32&t=10369
I kept it in the last one since there was space for it and because I like that I can sync with google calendars.
I believe I have everything installed(no pulse audio, it's not in xubuntu and doesn't seem to work when installed) and it 682.4MBs

I am not sure if Evolution takes up more space or not.(i try to keep this close to the main.)

I have compiz fusion installed but not enabled, you use mintDesktop to enable it.(fusion-icon can do this as well)

Is there an ISO / Beta that we can check out? Im drooling waiting, or are you waiting for a solid release of Mint before any Beta XFCE's?
