Hello shipmates!
Hoist the mainsail! Get ready for the action stations !
Stay the course, we are in sight of the Xfce 4.10 desktop!




Yes, we are back, this time with the famous galleon... Hmm... not Galleon... Ah yeah... the famous desktop, Xfce, the last one ! Very Happy
I hope you're ready, we are far to shorten sail !

Okay, I prepared Xfce 4.10, with a nice look, again with Slacko... But other distributions will follow' I hope!
Some wanted Xfce, it's done!

I have called it this time, "Valiant Ship" relevant to Wallpaper. Mr. Green

Issue(s):
Remove doesn't work sometimes with folders...

If you want to try, ISO here : https://sourceforge.net/projects/latestxfcepuppy/

Welcome aboard the White Pearl !

I did a manual frugal install to an 8gb flash drive.
I installed mesa+devx+kernelsourcesfs+NVIDIA-Linux-x86-304.22.run

I found that pets need to be installed from rox or by using petget from
the terminal.

I've only been using this for a bit, will continue testing.
No major problems so far Smile

Really like this version - everything seems fine, just using it - as is - for the moment.

No problems with normal browsing and/or file management that I've noticed yet.

The XFCE setup is very comprehensive - nice.

For me - this one is a winner.

Thanks again - very best regards - Ray

Hi Ray MK ! Smile

You can get an error when deleting a folder is not empty. "Invalid cross-device link".
In case, I added a command in the dialog (right click)
"Remove if error, invalid cross-link"

I'll create a SFS for this, you'll be able to use it on your favorite Puppy Very Happy

Cheers ! Very Happy

Not exactly, I'll try to create a SFS for the XFCE 4.10 desktop only.
Like that, others can try without download an entire ISO. Smile

Yes! Drag an icon from the menu to the taskbar and it installs there as a "shortcut." Yes!

I installed a pet from Thunar. Did Bilttoo have a problem with that?

No firstrun wizard ran on first boot. No systray with connect icon, etc., No auto connection to ethernet. Not necessarily complaining but people are used to them.

Agree with Ray MK.

Necessary to change desktop and Thunar separately to single-click.

An sfs might not be as easy because files on sfs won't replace default files. However, 01micko did make an xfce sfs for an early version of Lucid.

Thank you for the report, I will beginq SFS soon, it will be better. I'll lose less time in Puplet. Smile

Even if it takes time, I will try an SFS for several versions as LXDE (Wary, Racy etc.)

Somewhat to my surprise the latest version of Audacious 3.2.3 seems to work. Nice colorful icons too!

http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/Audacious-3.2.3-2.pet

What I was trying to say about the panel is that it works in the modern way as most users now expect--it is easy to configure using the gui and drag and drop. It is also easy to move elements around on the panel using Settings -> Panel -> Items. The Setting Manager or Menu -> Desktop -> XFCE allows users to customize delightfully. As the Trash works as users expect. And help seems to work in all the XFCE apps.

XFCE has a history with Puppy. 01micko made an XFCE sfs for an early version of Lucid and Jemimah has been using it in Saluki. In the old days I wrote a review of window managers for Mandrake 9.0 and included XFCE--then Olivier Fourdan himself wrote to remind me that XFCE was a desktop environment not just a wm Wink

gray has used xfce in all his early Nops plus QuirkyNop, RacyNop, and WaryNop, probably more.

I've used Nop, QNop, and currently RacyNop/
