Instead of compiling...

If using a Debian stable or LMDE (testing) you can activate the SID (unstable) repo and grab the Xfce 4.10, then deactivate (or deleate) those repos so as not get other updates things you don't want. :wink:

P.S. I did with a straight LMDE awile back. I since uninstalled LMDE so don't know if caused promblem down road! :oops:

I can do everything I used to do on Windows XP Pro on my 6-7 year-old notebook... YouTube, print/scan, compose templates for my students within OpenOffice... absolutely EVERYTHING.... except run a few games. But that's not Mint 13 XFCE's fault... WineHQ is just a mess at the moment.
My setup:
    *Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon 32-bit; Compaq Presario V2000-Intel 1.5GHz (Pentium M) - Intel 82852/855GM integrated video (i915)
    *Linux Mint 17.3 Cinnamon 64-bit; HP Media Center m7780n; GTX 750Ti (v352.63); Intel E6400 dual-core @ 2.13GHz

Thank Linux Mint, still pretty new to this so dont know if I would know a bad Linux OS. I've tried Ubuntu 11.04 (non-unity) on a vintage 2002 Dell Dimension 2400 pc with good results, (still use it occasionally, just slow). I run two of the other LM's in VirtualBox, 13 Mate and 12 KDE, KDE is nice looking but resource intensive in VirtualBox even on this FX6100 cpu, w/16GB ram but again being new I probably don't have VBox optimized. What I would like to know is how can i get Thunderbird to notify me when i have new e-mails in the system tray? I changed my file manager to Nautilus instead of Thunar.
