    Newbie for Xubuntu

    Ubuntu 14.04, just migrate to Xubuntu 18.04
    I found there is so much UI differ

    * Now, I able to directly play MP3 file from my external. But after re-start the path is unknown ... why?
    --- I used DeaDBeeF

    * Is there any System Monitor (Ubuntu's like) for Xubuntu? How to get it?

    * I heard someone said that Thunar has a split view? How to activate it?

    * I've tried to do a download. For a file, with capacity over than 100-MB ... it will be ending by FAILED. why?

    Please guide me ... thanx

    Re: Newbie for Xubuntu

    Did you upgrade or did you do a clean install?

    As for system monitor: There is one that you can get to by right-clicking on the header of your desktop and then choose Panle -> Add New Items -> (scroll down) System Load Monitor.

    There is the task manager already installed (in System category), but I suggest you install gnome-system-monitor. It's the same as in Ubuntu's and shows more than task manager.
    Thunar does not come with split-view. Use tabs or two windows side-by-side (or perhaps install a second file manager that has it.)
    Don't know DeadBeef. I use Audacious as my player. No problem with it playing from external drive.
    No idea about your download. Size should not be a factor. I would try again.

    If you mean a reboot of the whole machine, then external media connected during boot are not mounted automatically. You can mount a drive by selecting an option on the context menu of its icon on the desktop or opening it in the file manager.

    xfce4-taskmanager. It's in the menu as Taskmanager. It will give you the workload on the CPU and use of RAM and swap along with a list of currently running processes. If you need more information on your system you can install the gnome-system-monitor (that's the one mainline Ubuntu is using; 'sudo apt install gnome-system-monitor' in a terminal or use the 'Software'-app) or set up conky (not for the faint of heart ... it's not a system monitor, it's a way of life). There are also several panel-applets that can show you system and network load.

    I think you heard wrong. I've been using Thunar since Ubuntu 12.04 and I've never seen Thunar with a split view. It does have a tabbed view, but since you can't see two or more tabs at once that's not the same thing at all.

    Using what protocol, what client, through what kind of network connection to what server ... Without knowing all of these and more, any attempt to diagnose the problem is pure guesswork.

    Re: Newbie for Xubuntu

    If a split view file manger is needed I recommend Double Commander.
    I do not use it as default, I still also have Thunar and as Holger_Gehrke has advised Thunar has Tabbed option>>> again not the same as Split View.
    Also I feel strongly about telling you tabbed browsing in Thunar has shown me here that I need to keep an eye on the tabs as they revert to a unselected directory when using the back keyboard or mouse action at times.

    Is the external mounted on reboot? If not you'll see the behavior you describe.

    To my knowledge it doesn't, but you can open two instances of the program side by side if needed. Or you can use something like sunflower or mc.

    Have you looked through the available panel applets? There's a network monitor, mount devices monitor, and more. If you're not seeing them you should install the package xfce4-goodies.
