Xfce No doubt, all of you have heard of Xfce and those who haven't will hear about it soon anyway. I remember trying out Xfce for the first time back on SuSE 9.0. I am not sure if it came with the distrobution or if I downloaded it. At the time 9.0 came out I remember thinking to myself "nice, good potential, could be eyecandy, fast..." but I still logged into KDE upon booting. Sure I tried Gnome but somehow for a windows-commer KDE was more user friendly at the time. Update: More screenshots of XFce.

RE: Key binding
by Lumbergh on Wed 24th Nov 2004 20:21 UTC

Until you can change the "move window" key or whatever it's called from the alt to the meta key, then XFce is useless for me. The main software I use on a daily basis, Alias Maya, requires the alt key for camera movement. I heard there are some key binders for XFce, but none that could change what's already set.

Tell me about it. I was just searching on how to do that, and couldn't find anything. I'm running colinux-debian (http://www.colinux.org) and alt-tab gets me back to my windows desktop because my XServer is Cygwin.
