[SOLVED] Xubuntu or Lubuntu vs. installing Xfce/Lxde on Ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 6, 2012
I have been playing with Xubuntu 12.04 and Lubuntu 12.04 and find their interfaces to my liking (especially compared to Unity). However, Xubuntu and Lubuntu 12.04 are not long term support releases per their web sites.
So my question is... If I install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and then put Xfce or Lxde on top of the Ubuntu install will I have a long term support environment or will it turn into a pumpkin when the 'buntu of the add on desktop ends its support?

I just found a service called Dropbox (http://www.getdropbox.com/) and was curious how this stacks up vs. Ubuntu One. I have not used either one... but from reading the details they seem similar in function, but dropbox is cross-platform.

Ok, i know about KDE and Gnome, some of there pros and cons from personal experience. But i know nothing about XFCE, is it just as functional as KDE and Gnome? Is it lacking alot of features? Is it worth using on the Desktop?

I need adjustable dpi, compiz (for changing the darkness of individual windows, and for zooming), dual monitors (twinview), and dark themes.
Which one would be the best?
Do gnome themes work on MATE?
Linux Mint 15 xfce display issues
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 17, 2013
I just installed Mint 15 xfce on an Acer Aspire All In One 23" computer. For some reason when I open Firefox or Chromium, the window doesn't take up the full screen. The other thing is that I only have one monitor, not two as is depicted in the screenshot. My display panel shows laptop and monitor. The resolution for the laptop option is better that the one with the monitor option. What do I do? I'm not using a laptop.
If I select laptop or monitor, my screen goes black. I have to do a hard reboot

Which of the two now in september 2012, is preferred? Xubuntu or Mint Xfce?
To be lightweight, software repositories, stability, ease of use, security, and online banking security... and I like compiz, while composing documents...
I want to make up one of them into the equivalent of Ubuntu Studio and CE. Dual boot with Windows 7. Planning to upgrade my netbook to 1 or 2 Gib RAM.
NETBOOKS: what Mint: LXDE or Fluxbox? (or KDE or XFCE)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 15, 2010
I was wondering if someone could give us some guidance as to what is a better distrop for netbooks, offering efficiency resulting in speed, but without sacrificing usability, and which might even be used on bigger computers as well.
In the name of uniformity, which of these runs fastest, while still offering a good base of apps and a good software library to build upon that?
"Acceptable level of apps" meaning:
* codecs for everything - lets keep licencing and politics out of this, we're talking usability here
* support for webcams
* WiFi works out of the box (with WPA support)
* Abiword and Gnumeric or equivalent would be just fine
* Skype: more people use it, and are using it more and more, because it succeeds effectively in opening a path for clear uninterrupted voice through all your internet activities.
* an image viewer
* preferably Firefox4 or Chrome
Thanks in advance for your input, everyone. Please try to provide useful input here and don't just answer the
xfce vs. gnome
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 26, 2007
I have traditionally been a gnome user, however I recently decided to give xfce a shot. I have always heard it is supposed to be a more minimal, less resource-intensive DE than gnome and kde. I am not sure whether I have experienced any performance gains, as I never really found gnome to be particularly sluggish. However, what I did notice is that there is really no reduction in functionality when compared to gnome. Also, the user interface is almost identical, and I would even say it looks a bit more "polished" in xfce. At this point it looks like I'll be making a switch. Of course, it's not like I absolutely have to commit to "switching" to one of them like one does with an operating system.
Can anyone else here relate to what I'm talking about? It seems to me that if gnome doesn't necessarily have anything to offer over xfce, and xfce is lighter on system resources, xfce would simply be a superior DE and therefor should be equally as popular (note this
