I was on Softpedia last night and saw a link to xfce gloria so i upgraded. but looking on the Mint site I see it's still not available. Have i installed the official version ? also is x-chat safe as i had someone sending (me personally) questions like how to add widgets to a panel and saying they couldn't do it. which seemed strange. can people hack you through chat-x
Everything seems to work perfectly. Whoever is responsible for mint xfce6 and 7 , many thanks. It relieved me of my struggles with fedora11. After trying a few distros since being converted to linux 6 months ago, xfce felicia probably was my most used. this looks even better. many many thanks
I installed it on my wife's eeepc 900 last night and everything works like a charm, and is fast as a shark!(To quote Accept) Bye-bye easy-pc Xfce! As usual a really good job merlwiz79! Now how about that Gimp splash for the final release??
I am truly pleased with this release and look forward to the FINAL!
I should note that I was running LinuxMint 6 (gnome) on my main computer then decided to upgrade to LM7 (Gnome) but found it to be terribly sluggish. Not to be discouraged the next day LM7 XFCE (RC) was released and decided to check it out. I found it to be the fastest full distro I've ever used. I thought, if this is that fast lest see how it runs on an old Sony Vaio Laptop (PCG-F580 with Win98)) with a 667Mhz PIII with 192Mib ram. Sure enough the thing lit up like a Christmas tree. Although unconfigured, it idled at about 140Mib RAM and leaned heavily on the swap. After i configured it I managed to get it down to about 104Mib at idle. I then decided to install Openbox Window manager and was able to get it down to 41Mib. It now sits in my living room as a media player and light web and email use.
I am having issues with Emerald stealing my XFCE Decorations and not giving them back on my main PC and DVD play back is a mystery to me but all in all things look good.
