Creating a default printer in XFCE ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 3, 2006
So I've been having trouble getting my printer to work since I reinstalled ubuntu to upgrade to breezy. I eventually figured out that it was because I never setup a default printer. When I had 5.04 I used gnome and this was simple from the administration menu, but I switched to using xfce and there's no obvious way to do this.
After a bit of searching I came across two possibilities here and here
Using the first way (my preferred if I can get it to work) I try lppasswd and get the message

[SOLVED] Install xfce desktop in Ubuntu 11.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 9, 2011
This is really a "check just to make sure" question. I just don't want to mess my system up by trying something out, without really knowing what it is going to do!
If I have a standard Ubuntu 11.04 install, I can choose when logging in whether I want the new Unity desktop, or Classic Gnome desktop. If I just wanted to try the Xubuntu desktop, without any of its associated applications, what is the correct line to type into the shell? I see on one site they recommend:
sudo apt-get install xfce4 gdm xubuntu-gdm-theme xubuntu-artwork
But there are also other sites that have reported problems getting the standard Gnome desktop back, once someone has tried the xcfe desktop. I wondered if it were possible, at login, to just select which one you wanted, and away you went.
Could anyone clarify a way to download & install just the xcfe desktop, but not the associated applications (Abiword etc), and also confirm that I just select this new desktop at login; and after
How to reset Xfce to "factory" settings in Etch ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 18, 2007
My 2 Etch boxes are doing perfect, thanks to the help of some posters here. On one of the boxes, I experiment problem in Xfce : I am missing the "window frame" (the bar on top of the window, with the "minimize", "maximize" and "close" buttons).
I think it is because the first time I used Xfce, its default resolution was 1280x1024, on a 17" CRT monitor that is better under 1024x768 res'... So I booted under Gnome, edited xorg.conf, and all was fine... Except that Xfce behaves funny.
I have to mention that it is only the case under my own user account. When I boot Xfce under my wife's account, it is absolutely fine.
So here's my question :
-Is there a way to reset Xfce to its "factory" settings , or its default configuration ?
Thanks in advance for your advices,
I am thinking of using a lxde or xfce version of linux i am maybe at best a medium level user
location: linux.com - date: December 6, 2011
I am thinking of taking my laptop and installing a version of either lxde, xfce, or kde based on such flavor of ubuntu, linux mint, id love to learn arch but only if it is not a huge learning curve because i always like to be up to date with my software. that is one of the few things i really enjoy about windows. and currently i am running windows 7 but sadly i only have a 64 bit version which we all know requires 4 gigs of ram and that is all i have on this set up. Therefore i cannot run windows 7 in a virtual environment on linux but i can run win 32 bit xp. there is one program i like to use for my comics called comic rack that i cannot get to run in linux either with wine or mono. but then again i do not know how to tinker with mono or any languages for that matter. otherwise honestly most of the programs i run on windows have equivalents or are the same on linux and i really want to migrate but i must be able to run comic rack in my opinion.

location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 30, 2004
xFce currently starting up at 640x480, but I'm on a non-interlaced SVGA monitor which can handle 1024x768.
How do I change the screen resolution? Do I need to change something in the xf86config file?
Xfce 4.2 + Ubuntu 4.10
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 1, 2005
Quite new to Linux, so please excuse my lack of knowledge. I recently got my hands on an Ubuntu install CD (i386) and was wondering whether it is possible to install Xfce 4.2 on it. Ideally I would download a file using Windows and install it in Ubuntu as I have a winmodem. Is this possible? Right now I'm using Fedora Core 3 as my Linux OS and intend upon reinstalling it to put both Ubuntu and Fedora.
