Xfce The Xfce project finally finished the second release candidate for the upcoming Xfce Desktop Environment 4.2. This second release candidate is expected to be the last release candidate before the final release, which is planned to happen in about 2 or 3 weeks. This RC2 includes several bugfixes, esp. the window manager has seen quite a few important fixes, and it is the first release in the 4.2 branch that builds and runs on Solaris out of the box. As usual, prebuilt packages for several plattforms are already available (as a highlight: Debian/amd64 packages) and the graphical installers have been update to 4.2RC2. Please check the Xfce website for further details.

Moving windows in XFCE is slow!!
by anonymous on Tue 14th Dec 2004 07:00 UTC

like I'm sitting on a TFT-screen with 100ms response time (but I'm work with an old CRT 17")

No, my machine is fast: 2.4ghz/1gb ram/160gb hd
and _everthing_ else what I tried (Gnome, KDE, IceWM) _is_ fast and not slow motion.

And yes, I'm always moving windows with "OpaqueMove" on, on every WindowManager

Only XFCE feels a bit "jumpy" and slow :-(

can't understand why because I haven't only in XFCE no icons on my desktop (don't know why this feature isn't avaible, I have items on my real desk too)

So, XFCE _is_nice_, but window moving and doesn't able to put icons on my desktop are showkillers...
