Hi
Sw mandrake 10.1 kde 3.2

prb:
i'm installing xfce4 windows manager...

lighter than kde.
i copied rpm files from a set of fedora installation cd...
each prodoct is istalling fine,but when i try to install
Xfce-utils i get the message "/usr/sbin/id" missing....

installed...but

Hi

i created a symbolic link to /bin/id to /usr/bin/id and i proceeded succesfully to install xfce4.....
xfce4 is very faster than kde......it uses less resources because i think it has less capabilities....
now....
i installed xfce 4.0.6 ....(what i have available from a fedora 3 cds...)
now i need to add applications to the contextual menu showed clicking the right
mouse button....
how to proceed...
(about the forum location...may be this thread be switched to fedora sepecific
forum......)
thanks in advance
Maurizio
