No there is no other menu for XFCE. :(
There is a way to to get the mintMenu running with the XFCE panel.
I would have to do some editing of the code to do it.
Only thing is I think they moved away from python, will have to look into that.(I new how to edit the python version for XFCE CE)
It is also slow when 1st booting into XFCE CE while using the mintMenu.

Looks like I will move to Elyssa XFCE CE.


Well, before you do that, could you by any chance just replace Firefox with Opera or Iceweasel(wait...is it the same as firefox?!) or Epiphany or Kazekahase or whatever...maybe change the wallpaper, replace deluge with transmission(just some thoughts)...you know, make just some small improvements wherever(and IF) you feel necessary,include all updates and release it as stable?!!

I got to tell you Merlwiz...the beta release is perfect! It's the most stable and beautiful operating system I've seen and I thank you for it! :D :D :D

I am using it everyday without any trouble, firefox works like a charm too, but just to be sure you could replace it :wink: .

Hardy is nice it brings many new features, but also some annoying bugs. I think there are many people like me out there who'd rather have a nice light stable and beautiful system(like Daryna Xfce) and don't care much about pulse audio and such...

Of course I'm looking forward Elyssa XFCE CE, but man! you've come so far with this great release, why leave it to Beta?! :D

I think Hardy is the Buggiest release that Ubuntu has put out.
Then they say they aren't going to fix much until 8.04.1.
I thought service packs were for only Windows. :?

I don't like Opera, and we don't have an opera package for Linux Mint.
Also I don't understand where the default preferences are for opera.(IE Java has to be setup by end user)
Iceweasel, Epiphany and all other Gecko browsers have the same problem.
I hope Firefox 3.0 beta and the new package base fixes this.

New wallpaper is here viewtopic.php?p=74061#p74061]
Will likely have to remove old wallpapers to make the ISO stay lower than 700MBs.

I have already updated mintDesktop-xfce and mintConfig-xfce(got to test if nothing was changed in /usr/share/applications)
I have to update mintUpload and xfcemint-default-settings.
Have some ideas on improvements to make as well.
I like Deluge but will look at Transmission(never used it)

This is just awesome news! Thank you very much!!! :D :D :D

p.s. I was really happy to see deluge in the menu! I think it is a great choice. I suggested Transmission only cause Hardy is using it, and lately I gave it a try and liked that it's simple and light. I'm sure that your choices will be the best! :D

@Merlwiz: I just tried this distro, and it has a familiar looking menu running under XFCE, that you might want to take a look at! :wink: :wink: :wink:

If you give me a link to the iso with this installed by default, I will take a look.
Also what is the memory usage like?
Is it slow at boot?

I don't have a problem with the menu in XFCE, it's nice and fast. Also I don't have the memory problem with Firefox. Firefox 3 crashes on me all the time when using Flash.
