Desktop environments


I was playing arround and installed Blackbox. Very different compaired to GNOME and KDE!
I normally use Gnome, just because I have no volume control in KDE.

I was wondering if any of you use any of the other ones out there, and could reccomend before I try to install. TIA!

You mean like a tray volume icon? Run kmix.

The FC3 probably would not work in FC1 - different libc's probably

to compile enlightenment you'll need imlib2 and freetype 2 check your system for those 2.
