[SOLVED] Easy way to get xfce on SolydK

Postby palimmo » 15 Feb 2018 19:50

Hi!
What's the easiest and best way to get xfce on my SolydK machine? I would like to give xfce a try and choose it at the login.
Thanks!

You really want to choose at login? That would need one user for each desktop and some configuration which I have no idea about.

Choosing at boot would be much easier.

if you're using lightdm IIRC you can choose which DE you would use at login screen. you can also configure which DE as default on lightdm. the same with GDM and other login manager. though, I don't know whether if the one used on solydK support this feature or not. one user could have multiple DE without any additional configuration. simply pick the DE on login screen.

If you really want to do it this way you can install xfce4 with:

Code: Select all

apt update; apt install xfce4 xfce4.*plugin
However, you will get a default xfce desktop and you'll have to configure it manually. You also have to decide which xfce applications you'd like to use instead of the already installed plasma applications. All in all I'd recommend a dual boot. Keep things clean.
