    I actually installed it via their graphical installer, and it worked great....

    i just need to add it to my gdm sessions menu...

    but other then that, it is really nice...

    I voted yes (although I use Hoary, I know others that would love the updated XFCE4), but I thought that you were going to stay away from desktop environments and stick with desktop user programs like Firefox and such.
    We rarely notice freedom. What we notice is the lack of freedom, and I'm afraid by then it is too late.

    It looks very slick, but it may be too much for the backports. I'm ambivalent.

    I used it for about 10 minutes, didn't bother cusomizing/configuring, but it's NICE.

    count me in, it looks cool enough to try. Plus with that I could talk a stubborn friend of mine into trying Ubuntu.

    Yeah, but XFCE is in Universe, so I think I'm in the clear!

    P.S. 4.0.5 comes with Hoary -- not 4.2 RC2!

    P.P.S I'm about halfway done... By 9:00pm EST tonight, i should have a full set of testing stuff!

    Re: [Poll] XFCE4 Backports?

    I don't personally use or like XFce4, but doesn't some of the nicer features rely on the composite extension in the newer X.org - so if we want full XFce someone has to backport X.org as well?

    Re: [Poll] XFCE4 Backports?

    Well, the composite stuff can wait for Hoary!

    XFCE is very nice for older systems that can't handle GNOME too well, but are not so old as to rely on Flux. I'm thinking of the 200-400MHz range as good candidates for XFCE.

    What's this 'patience' thing you speak of?


    Progress-wise, I'm about 75% done.. I project I'll finish around 5:00 EST.
