Xfce Over the past several years, mobile devices have greatly influenced user interfaces. That's great for handheld users but leaves those of us who rely on laptops and desktops in the lurch. Windows 8, Ubuntu Unity, and GNOME have all radically changed in ways that leave personal computer users scratching their heads.

One user interface completely avoided this controversy: Xfce. This review takes a quick look at Xfce today. Who is this product for? Who should pass it by?

It is possible to replace these ancient and crufty old xscreesaver/xlock programs, but it requires manual hacking of aliases to xlock, which XFCE is hard-wired to use.

Not true:

Settings -> Keyboard -> Application Shortcut pane

If you double click on "xlock..." you can change the shortcut AND the command itself.


Hope this helps,

RT.
