    If you do, then http://forum.xfce.org/ is your friend. At the top right are other useful links.
    As I've said elsewhere, the documentation is quite decent. Plus, we have Toz

    Oh okay. Also, does Conky work well in XFCE? I had to change something in my Conky script in order to get it to work in LXDE.

    I don't know. Never used Conky because I don't know why I should need it though a lot of people simply love it!

    Yeah, I've recently started using it and like it so far. Since I'll probably uninstall LXDE, how would I install XFCE? Should I go to Ubuntu Software Center, search for XFCE and install it that way?

    Re: Switching From Ubuntu To Lubuntu & Others

    Could I just reiterate that LXDE looks UGLY. BUt Lubuntu looks fairly nice. So you could at least try Lubuntu from a USB or whatever, that way you might get a fair representation of what LXDE can do. Also bear in mind that Xfce isn't as light as LXDE.

    Global menu is unfortunately an Ubuntu-only thing, with some hacks for Xfce.

    Choose whatever works for you, just giving an opinion.

    I agree! LXDE was ugly!! Really ugly. But I thought Lubuntu uses LXDE, no? Is it not the same thing?
