How do I install XFCE 4.10 update

Postby jacatone on Thu Nov 29, 2012 10:19 pm

I'm using LM 13 XFCE and read that the new 4.10 version of XFCE allows for single click on the desktop files and folders. I download it and it uncompressed to a "SCR" file with a whole bunch of tarballs inside. Anyone know how I install this thing? Also, what the terminal command to find out what version of XFCE I'm using. Thanks.

How come then do I have to double click on desktop icons to open them?

i'm not using xfce4.10, in 4.8 as far as i can see you can't do that (single-click desktop icons) or i don't know how :lol:

probably you should change the topic title to something more specific.

Hello, my friend.... :D
Gotta love XFCE.
4.10 has some nice upgrades (but looses xfce goodies...)
