XFCE 's Mepis Main features:
Based on Mepis 8.0.06
XFCE 4.6.1 from the community repo
Mepis assistants integrated in the menus
Different software packages: thunderbird, twinkle, homebank, evince, liferea, pidgin, vlc, wine...
GDM with "Mepis" look&feel
Desktop environment with "Mepis" look&feel
You can find the torrent here:
To install it, you have just to click on the desktop icon as with regular Mepis.
If other members want to help me to improve the remaster they are very welcome. Also if somebody wants to create his own XFCE remaster and need advice, just let me know.
Comments, feedback, ideas are always welcome.
