Font rendering in xfce
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 19, 2012
Hi, I'm trying Xubuntu 12.04 beta 2, it is not bad, but I don't like the font rendering.
In ubuntu 10.10 the fonts looks great! How can i use the gnome/ubuntu font rendering in Xubuntu?

Running 12.04 with Cinnamon as my DE and I wanted to remove XFCE. I used the following command:
sudo apt-get remove xfce-keyboard-shortcuts xfce4-appfinder xfce4-cpugraph-plugin xfce4-dict xfce4-fsguard-plugin xfce4-indicator-plugin xfce4-mailwatch-plugin xfce4-mixer xfce4-mount-plugin xfce4-netload-plugin xfce4-notes xfce4-notes-plugin xfce4-notifyd xfce4-panel xfce4-places-plugin xfce4-power-manager xfce4-power-manager-data xfce4-quicklauncher-plugin xfce4-screenshooter xfce4-session xfce4-settings xfce4-smartbookmark-plugin xfce4-systemload-plugin xfce4-taskmanager xfce4-terminal xfce4-utils xfce4-verve-plugin xfce4-volumed xfce4-weather-plugin xfconf xfdesktop4 xfdesktop4-data xfwm4 xfwm4-themes xscreensaver xscreensaver-data xscreensaver-gl xubuntu-artwork xubuntu-default-settings xubuntu-desktop xubuntu-docs xubuntu-icon-theme xubuntu-wallpapers
XFCE appears to be removed (no longer choice in login menu) but the Blue Xubuntu screen comes up on boot up. Is it possible
Xfce Power Manager
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 2, 2012
I am using an Ubuntu installation with Xfce as desktop environment on my Thinkpad E520. After installing updates (including a reboot) my power manager stopped working and I also get crash reports about the network manager on every start. I tried reinstalling (sudo apt-get remove, then install) xfce4-power-manager, but it didn't help. Here are some screenshots:
(The text says "Can't establish connection to the power manager for Xfce")
Any ideas how to fix this problem?

How do I lock the screen in XFCE?
Usually I use Ubuntu, and whenever I walk away from my computer, I ctrl+alt+l. But I noticed on my laptop that runs Xubuntu, I can't do that.
Is there a key combination or button I can press?
Any good looking themes for XFCE 4.10?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 7, 2012
Can anybody share some great sources for great XFCE themes, preferably compatible with the latest 4.10?
Common sites like deviantART can be left out.
I'm in search of good XFCE themes but haven't stubmled upon anything interesting.
12.04+xfce refuses to shutdown
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 8, 2013
When I try to shutdown, at first nothing happens. This is true whether I click shut down (or hibernate, reboot, suspend) on the username dropdown menu of the Panel, or use Fn+F4 (it's a laptop). On the 2nd attempt I get an error message: Failed to shut down. Session manager must be in idle state when requesting a shutdown. For older versions there have been suggestions of setting the hostname so that it doesn't have any spaces in it - mine doesn't anyway. This has only been happening after upgrading to 12.04 and installing xfce (I didn't hang about for long enough in between to test on the default 12.04 installation). This isn't an xubuntu install - I went through the upgrade path from 11.04 then installed xfce on top. I'll test shutting down from the terminal - for obvious reasons I don't want to do it while writing this post! sudo shutdown -r now works fine.
(edited - more info re terminal shutdown, +line breaks for clarity)
Problems Connecting to xrdp xfce desktop after Ubuntu Upgrade
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 3, 2012
Hi, I just upgraded my linux box from 11.10 to 12.04 last night. Everything went smooth except for one issue. I use xrdp over ssh to connect to the machine remotely. After the upgrade on the first boot I had an issue where it said failed to load gnome. Well, I found a rather hidden drop down menu in the default x-gui and managed to get back to my xfce desktop by choosing it. So, that's not an issue anymore when logged in locally.
The last time I did an upgrade I didn't have this remote issue with it trying to load gnome. It just stuck with the default xfce which is what I want because this is an old machine and xfce works great remotely.
So, now when I try to connect to my ubuntu machine remotely using Windows mstsc (remote desktop)I get the same failed to load gnome message I got on first boot up. However, I can't change anything on the remote session to choose xfce like I did locally. Here's my screen shots and my xrdp.ini file.
I can't determine what gui/session environme
How can I customize Ubuntu/xfce like xubuntu?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 1, 2013
I've install xfce4 in a Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. However, the default configuration doesn't look nice.
How can I customize it like default xubuntu desktop? Borrow config files from a xubuntu distro will do job?

How can I install Xfce 4.8 Desktop for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS?
I have Genome Desktop but I would like to try Xfce since it is lighter, and the machine should run faster. I learned in http://www.xfce.org/ that the latest version of Xfce Desktop Environment is 4.8 Thank you.
How to get rid of gnome and only use xfce in Ubuntu 11.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 30, 2012
I was able to somehow manage logging into xfce and remove unity and the gnome panel. But I notice that there are still elements of gnome running in my system. This is what I see when I do ps ax | grep gnome.
