    I look forward to the day Linux gets a unified graphical installer format. To those who might claim there's no problem with the "package everything" repository approach, I point to the fact that...

    Re: What XFCE has going for it

    My major XFCE complaint is that maximized windows still have borders :? I guess this is another aspect of Fitt's Law... I'd occasionally miss the scrollbar when aiming for it, and end up slightly...

    Installing just the ffmpeg GStreamer plugin (probably from multi/universe) seems to have worked for me. That was something I tried on my own, though... most instructions seem to be along the lines...
