XFCE borked KDE

Posted 08-28-2008 at 08:43 PM by trevorparsons
Updated 11-22-2009 at 07:06 PM by trevorparsons (My code tags didn't work.)

Curious to try XFCE again, I fired it up. I already had it installed on my Arch system, and it was up to date thanks to regular runs of pacman -Syu.

There were a huge number of window manager tweaks available. I only gave up my experiment because for some strange reason I couldn't get any sound out of the machine any more....
