Installing XFCE on a openSUSE 10.2 box


I have heard that XFCE is a very, very fast desktop environment. I am not pleased with the default gnome one.

I was wondering how I would install and set XFCE as the default environment. All help would be appreciated!

Some versions -not sure about 10.2, but others certainly- have Xfce available as a standard package in the repository (and on the OpenSuSE DVD, if that is what you have - possibly not on the multi-cd version which is a bit cut down).

In which case you just have to use Yast to install it in the normal way (from the 'net or the DVD, depending on which is, for you, normal, and what you want).

After that, when you get to the login stage, its just a matter of going to the menu at the bottom of the screen (sessions?) and select Xfce. If you like it, set it as the default.
