Sorry - These were intended for Merlwiz; but he is on holiday...
I use gnoome main edition of Daryna. I like it and am happy as such. I use macs otherthan this one thinkpad running Daryna exclusively. Most things work, otherthan the fancy eye candy and cannot get a dock happening which I want for many reasons. Saw Dreamlinux and trid that - which i never try other distro's since Mint works so well. It has a dock that works - wireless doesn't and resolution is bad news. I like E17 though complex to learn and most distro's do not have codecs which i need. So I have been looking at XFCE. Tried Elyssa Mint 5 live CD mode over the weekend. But I am confused and need more info.
why firefox and not iceweasel? as DL has? Why no DOCK? I do not like panels if i do not need them or 2 of them...I like a dock down on the bottom a la my macs. makes it easy for physical habit of use.
Is there a manual for XFCE MINT? there are a lot of settings and aspects there that I was trying out - some stayed and some went back to default as in a glitch. How do I know what some of them are actually supposed to be doing when I tweak some of these facets. How can I get the mouse doubleclick to not happen...It makes me click open stuff all over the place. There were maybe 5 more question but i am on my first cup of coffee and my brain is still a bit fuzzy this A.M.
ahhh - how glitchy is this vs. reg. main gnome edition?
thank you for your patience. I am not a fan of KDE - not starting anything - like gnome and Mint gnome is elegant. Just reminds me in so many ways of Microsoft sorry to say. Trying to make things more similar to what i am used to for the right brain left brain syndrome, if you know what I mean...
so i am interested in XFCE.
I recently tweaked my gnome a bit to help me out but am interested in this XFCE. I have a fast enought computer to run gnome - not sure if XFCE is a step ahead or behind??? serious question. Like a simple and fast OS. Hence my interest.
Enough of my post - thanks again.
