Xfce is a desktop envorinment for UNIX-like operating systems. It's lightweight, fast and uses low resources on system, while still being visually appealing and user friendly.
- Lighter on resources than the other major DEs (KDE, GNOME).
- Most settings are exposed via a GUI, Xfce does not try to hide stuff from the user.
- Xfwm has an optional built-in compositor which allows for true transparency and all the benefits of GPU acceleration (minimizes tearing, etc.).
- It works great with multiple monitors.
Installation on Archlinux:
$sudo pacman -S xfce4
$sudo pacman -S xfce4-goodies lxdm
And another Software that you needed.
After Installation, if you have not used login manager:
$sudo systemctl enable lxdmThen restart.
You will login into lxdm, then choose xfce-session. At the first time, you will be asked like this.
Choose "Use Default Config", and this is the default desktop of XFCE:
For configuring XFCE i will write on another post. :)
