31     <p>
32     <uri link="http://www.xfce.org">Xfce</uri> is a fast, lightweight desktop
33     environment for Unix-like operating systems. It is designed for productivity,
34     and is quite configurable while still adhering to the <uri
35     link="http://www.freedesktop.org">Freedesktop</uri> specifications.
36     </p>
37    
38     <p>
39     Unlike heavier desktop environments, such as Gnome and KDE, Xfce uses far fewer
40     system resources. Additionally, it offers greater modularity and fewer
41     dependencies; it takes up less space on your hard disk and takes less time to
42     install.
43     </p>
44    
45     <p>
46     This guide will not only show you how to install and configure a minimal Xfce
47     environment, but will also explore options to create a full-featured desktop in
48     keeping with the Xfce philosophy: light, fast, and modular.
49     </p>

52     Additionally, this guide will show you how to <uri link="#upgrade">upgrade</uri>
53     from version 4.2 to 4.4.

66     <p>
67 nightmorph 1.8 First, make sure you've setup Xorg as shown in the <uri
68     link="/doc/en/xorg-config.xml">X Server Configuration Howto</uri>.
69     </p>
70    
71     <p>
72 nightmorph 1.1 Before we install our fully-functional yet minimal desktop, let's take a moment
73     to review the basic packages we'll be emerging.

93    
94     <p>
95     You're free to install any other packages you wish, but for now, we'll stick
96     with these suggestions for a fast, minimal working environment. Double check
97     your USE flags in <path>/etc/make.conf</path>; you'll probably at least want
98 nightmorph 1.4 <c>USE="dbus -gnome hal startup-notification"</c>.
99     </p>
100    
101     <p>
102     Now, let's install Xfce.
103 nightmorph 1.1 </p>

107 nightmorph 1.1 </pre>
108    
109     <p>
110 nightmorph 1.3 Next, add your regular user(s) to the <c>plugdev</c>, <c>cdrom</c>, <c>cdrw</c>,
111     and <c>usb</c> groups, so that they can take full advantage of <c>hal</c> and be
112     able to mount and use devices such as cameras, optical drives, and USB sticks.

144     <title>Starting Xfce</title>
145     <body>
146    
147     <p>
148     Now that Xfce is now installed, we'll configure it to be the default desktop
149     environment when we issue the <c>startx</c> command. Exit your root shell and
150     log on as a regular user.
151     </p>
152    
153     <pre caption="Setting Xfce as the default desktop environment">
154     $ <i>echo "exec startxfce4" > ~/.xinitrc</i>
155     </pre>
156    
157     <p>
158     Now start your graphical environment by typing <c>startx</c>:

164    
165     <p>
166     Congratulations, and welcome to your new Xfce desktop environment. Go ahead,
167     explore it a bit. Then continue reading to learn how you can configure Xfce to
168     suit your needs.

174     <title>Program access</title>
175     <body>
176    
177     <p>
178     You might notice right-clicking on the desktop shows you the menu of all your
179     applications. It's useful, but your desktop can easily be completely obscured by
180     open windows, making it hard to to launch a new program. So, one of the first
181     things you may wish to do is give yourself a handy application menu on your
182     panel. Right click on this panel, and choose "Add New Item". Scroll through the
183     list of choices and select "Xfce Menu". You can choose where you want it to be
184     displayed on your panel. When clicked, it displays the application/preferences
185     menu, providing a nicely categorized list of your installed programs.
186     </p>
187    
188     </body>
189     </section>
190     <section>
191     <title>Sessions &amp; startup</title>
192     <body>
193    
194     <p>
195     If you've installed (or plan to install) popular Gnome or KDE applications such
196     as <c>k3b</c>, <c>nautilus</c>, <c>kmail</c>, <c>evolution</c>, etc. then you
197     should make sure that Xfce launches the appropriate services for these at
198     startup. Navigate to Menu --> Settings --> Sessions &amp; Startup. On the
199     "Advanced" tab, select the appropriate checkbox. This might slightly increase
200     Xfce startup times, but it decreases load times for KDE and Gnome applications.
201     </p>
202    
203     <p>
204     Xfce has the ability to save your session settings and running programs from the
205     "General" tab in the Sessions &amp; Startup menu. They can be automatically
206     saved when you logout, or Xfce can ask you each time. This feature is
207     particularly useful for undoing configuration mistakes. Accidentally killed a
208     panel? Just select "No" when prompted to save your current session, and the next
209     time you start Xfce, your old desktop is restored. Want to automatically launch
210     your open webbrowser, terminal, and email client the next time you login? Just
211     save your session before logging out.
212     </p>
213    
214     <p>
215     You've now got a basic working environment installed and configured. But if
216     you're interested in doing more, then continue reading!

226     <title>Panel plugins</title>
227     <body>
228    
229     <p>
230     In this chapter, we'll discuss some useful plugins and applications for everyday
231     use within Xfce.
232     </p>
233    
234     <p>
235     There are many plugins for the panel available in Portage; see for yourself with
236     <c>emerge --search xfce</c>. Though for the most part their names are self
237     explanatory, a few deserve some attention, as they are quite helpful. To use
238     them, simply <c>emerge</c> them. They'll be added to the list of available items
239 nightmorph 1.4 in the "Add New Item" menu shown when you right-click on the panel.
240 nightmorph 1.1 </p>
241    
242     <ul>
243     <li>
244     <c>xfce4-mount</c> gives you a handy method of mounting devices listed in
245     <path>/etc/fstab</path> just by clicking your mouse
246     </li>
247     <li>
248     <c>xfce4-battery</c> is perfect for laptop users. It displays battery
249     percentage, time remaining, power source (AC or battery), fan status,
250     warnings, and can even be configured to execute commands at certain power
251     levels. This feature can be used to put the laptop into hibernate mode when
252     the battery is almost exhausted.
253     </li>
254     <li>
255 nightmorph 1.4 <c>verve</c> is a small command line embedded into the panel. It's quicker
256     than opening up another terminal when you want to run a command.
257     </li>
258     <li>
259     <c>xfce4-mixer</c> is a volume control. It works with both ALSA and OSS
260     sound applications.
261 nightmorph 1.1 </li>
262     </ul>
263    
264 nightmorph 1.4 <p>
265     If you can't find what you're looking for in the plugins specifically made for
266     Xfce, try searching through the list of Gnome panel applets! That's right, by
267     first emerging <c>xfce4-xfapplet</c>, you can install and run any applet made
268     for Gnome.
269     </p>
270    
271 nightmorph 1.1 </body>
272     </section>
273     <section>
274     <title>Useful programs</title>
275     <body>
276    
277     <p>
278 nightmorph 1.4 Xfce bundles a few useful applications, including <c>thunar</c>,
279     <c>terminal</c>, <c>orage</c>, and <c>mousepad</c>. Note that the last three
280     will not be installed if you built <c>xfce4</c> with the <c>minimal</c> USE
281     flag. However, these are all very small, yet terrific applications, so they're
282     well worth installing.
283 nightmorph 1.1 </p>
284    
285     <p>
286 nightmorph 1.4 <c>orage</c> is a simple, handy calendar. <c>mousepad</c> is a barebones text
287     editor that starts up extremely quickly. <c>terminal</c> is far more
288     configurable and useful than xterm, and supports Unicode text,
289     pseudo-transparency and accelerated transparency via Xfce's built-in
290     compositor, all out-of-the-box. Just make sure that the default action on the
291     terminal launcher of your panel runs <path>/usr/bin/Terminal</path> instead of
292     xterm. Right click the launcher and choose "Properties" to change the command.
293 nightmorph 1.1 </p>
294    
295     <p>
296 nightmorph 1.4 <c>thunar</c> is Xfce's built-in graphical file manager. It's fast yet quite
297     powerful, can support a few plugins for even more functionality; just install
298     them with <c>emerge</c>. Let's take a look:
299 nightmorph 1.1 </p>
300    
301 nightmorph 1.4 <ul>
302     <li>
303     <c>thunar-archive</c> lets you create and extract archive files using the
304     right-click menu. It works even better when paired with the new graphical
305     archiving <uri
306     link="http://www.foo-projects.org/~benny/projects/thunar-archive-plugin/">tool</uri>
307     developed for Xfce, <c>xarchiver</c>.
308     </li>
309     <li>
310     <c>thunar-media-tags</c> lets you intelligently rename multiple media files
311     at once, and lets you <uri
312     link="http://thunar.xfce.org/pwiki/projects/thunar-media-tags-plugin">edit</uri>
313     their information tags, such as id3 tags.
314     </li>
315     <li>
316     <c>thunar-thumbnailers</c> lets you <uri
317     link="http://goodies.xfce.org/projects/thunar-plugins/thunar-thumbnailers">preview</uri>
318     certain types of files from within Thunar, such as images and fonts.
319     </li>
320     <li>
321     <c>thunar-volman</c> automatically <uri
322     link="http://foo-projects.org/~benny/projects/thunar-volman/">manages</uri>
323     removable media and drives.
324     </li>
325     </ul>
326 nightmorph 1.1
327     <p>
328 nightmorph 1.4 Next, let's see about adding some useful but lightweight desktop applications,
329     in keeping with Xfce's philosophy.
330 nightmorph 1.1 </p>
331    
332     <p>
333 nightmorph 1.4 Though <c>mousepad</c> is nice enough, if you need a full-featured word
334     processor but don't want the bloat of OpenOffice, try emerging <c>abiword</c>.
335     <uri link="http://www.abisource.com">AbiWord</uri> is lighter, faster, and is
336 nightmorph 1.1 completely interoperable with industry-standard document types.
337     </p>
338    
339     <pre caption="Adding a word processor">
340     # <i>emerge -avt abiword</i>
341     </pre>
342    
343     <p>
344     Need a nice email client/newsreader that isn't as demanding as
345 nightmorph 1.9 <c>mozilla-thunderbird</c> or <c>evolution</c>? Try emerging <c>claws-mail</c>.
346 nightmorph 1.1 </p>
347    
348     <p>
349     For your internet chat needs, <c>irssi</c> is an excellent, tiny, incredibly
350     configurable IRC client that runs in your terminal. If you prefer a compact
351     all-in-one client that handles nearly all chat protocols, you may want to
352 nightmorph 1.10 <c>emerge pidgin</c>.
353 nightmorph 1.1 </p>
354    
355     <p>
356     If you need movie and music players, look no further than <c>mplayer</c> and
357     <c>audacious</c>. They can play most every media format available quite nicely,
358     and have a wealth of additional plugins available for additional functionality.
359     </p>
360    
361     <p>
362     Finally, you'll need a webbrowser. Nearly all graphical webbrowsers require more
363     resources than most of your other desktop applications. Still,
364     <c>mozilla-firefox</c> (or <c>mozilla-firefox-bin</c>) is always a good choice.
365     Alternatively, you may find <c>opera</c> to be quite fast. However, <c>opera</c>
366     is not available on as many processor architectures as <c>mozilla-firefox</c>,
367     and it has more dependencies unless you override them with a USE flag.
368     </p>
369    
370     <pre caption="Adding a webbrowser">
371     <comment>(Installing Mozilla Firefox)</comment>
372     # <i>emerge mozilla-firefox</i>
373     <comment>(Installing Opera)</comment>
374     # <i>echo "www-client/opera qt-static" >> /etc/portage/package.use</i>
375     # <i>emerge opera</i>
376     </pre>
377    
378     <p>
379     Now that we've explored some good suggestions for rounding out your desktop
380     applications, let's see what else we can do to enhance your Xfce experience.
381     </p>
382    
383     </body>
384     </section>
385     <section>
386     <title>Graphical login</title>
387     <body>
388    
389     <p>
390     Remember when we added <c>startxfce4</c> to our <path>~/.xinitrc</path>? All you
391     have to do to get into your desktop is type <c>startx</c> after logging in. This
392     is fine if you prefer a completely text-based boot and login, but let's use a
393     display manager that will automatically start Xfce after booting (so that you
394     can login graphically).
395     </p>
396    
397     <p>
398     First, let's make sure Xfce loads at boot:
399     </p>
400    
401     <pre caption="Adding xdm to the default runlevel">
402     # <i>rc-update add xdm default</i>
403     </pre>
404    
405     <p>
406     We aren't quite finished yet. We have to pick a display manager and set the
407     appropriate variable. Though there are a few choices available in Portage, for
408     this guide, we'll stick with two display manager options: <c>xdm</c> and
409     <c>gdm</c>.
410     </p>
411    
412     <p>
413     <c>xdm</c> is speedy and lightweight, but it isn't pretty, and isn't really
414     customizable. If you'd like to use it, first <c>emerge</c> it:
415     </p>
416    
417     <pre caption="Installing XDM">
418     # <i>emerge -avt xdm</i>
419     </pre>
420    
421     <p>
422     Then edit the DISPLAYMANAGER variable in <path>/etc/conf.d/xdm</path>:
423     </p>
424    
425     <pre caption="Editing /etc/conf.d/xdm">
426     DISPLAYMANAGER="xdm"
427     </pre>
428    
429     <p>
430 nightmorph 1.4 <c>xdm</c> can automatically start your Xfce session if you add XSESSION="Xfce4"
431     to <path>/etc/rc.conf</path>.
432     </p>
433    
434     <p>
435 nightmorph 1.1 While you can choose to stick with (the rather ugly) <c>xdm</c>, why not try
436     <c>gdm</c> instead? It's far more configurable, and much, much prettier. First,
437     let's <c>emerge</c> it. Note that though it has a few dependencies, they're
438     small, and they're not as nearly as numerous as other display managers.
439     </p>
440    
441     <pre caption="Installing GDM">
442     # <i>emerge -avt gdm</i>
443     </pre>
444    
445     <p>
446     Next, change the DISPLAYMANAGER variable to use <c>gdm</c> instead of
447     <c>xdm</c>:
448     </p>
449    
450     <pre caption="Editing /etc/conf.d/xdm">
451     DISPLAYMANAGER="gdm"
452     </pre>

457     <title>Beautifying your desktop</title>
458     <body>
459    
460     <p>
461     A little customization of your desktop's appearance can go a long way. Xfce has
462     all the options you'd expect from a modern desktop environment, font
463     antialiasing settings, color schemes, dozens of window decorations, themes, and
464     more. If these aren't enough, it's easy to install third-party themes, icon
465     sets, mouse cursor themes, and wallpapers.
466     </p>
467    
468     <p>
469     A selection of nice Gentoo wallpapers in a variety of resolutions are hosted on
470 nightmorph 1.2 the <uri link="/main/en/graphics.xml">Gentoo website</uri>. If you're looking
471     for icon sets and complete Xfce themes, <uri
472 nightmorph 1.1 link="http://www.xfce-look.org/">Xfce-Look</uri> has a huge collection. The
473     important thing to remember about any third-party eyecandy you download is that
474     it will usually first need to be unpacked and then installed to the proper
475     directory. Icon sets go in <path>/usr/share/icons/</path>, and themes go to
476 nightmorph 1.2 <path>/usr/share/themes/</path>; use these directories when you want all users
477     to be able to access themes and icon sets. Individual users can install themes
478     and icon sets to <path>~/.themes/</path> and <path>~/.icons/</path>.

482     If you installed GDM as your display manager, take a look at the many GDM themes
483     available on <uri link="http://www.gnome-look.org">Gnome-Look</uri>. To install
484     them, you can either unpack and move them to
485     <path>/usr/share/gdm/themes/</path> on the command line, or you can run
486     <c>gdmsetup</c> as <b>root</b> and drag'n'drop the archive into the GDM window.
487     There are some <uri
488     link="http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=45575">very nice</uri>
489     Gentoo <uri
490     link="http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=20071">themes</uri>
491     available.

493    
494     <p>
495     Finally, Xfce has its own built-in compositor to manage window transparency.
496     This option can be found in Menu --> Settings --> Window Manager. For best
497     performance, you will need to be running a graphics card with drivers that
498 nightmorph 1.4 support hardware-accelerated rendering. Make sure you emerged <c>xfwm4</c> with
499     the <c>xcomposite</c> USE flag. Next, you will need to enable compositing in
500     <path>/etc/X11/xorg.conf</path> by adding the following section:
501 nightmorph 1.1 </p>
502    
503     <pre caption="Enabling composite in xorg.conf">
504     Section "Extensions"
505     Option "Composite" "Enable"
506     EndSection
507     </pre>
508    
509     <p>
510     This is the bare minimum configuration required for Xfce and Xorg-X11. However,
511     setting up hardware-accelerated rendering depends on your individual graphics
512     card, and is beyond the scope of this guide. Please see the other guides in the
513     <uri link="/doc/en/index.xml?catid=desktop">Desktop Documentation
514     Resources</uri> list to learn about configuring hardware-accelerated rendering
515     for your graphics card.

523     <title>Upgrading</title>
524     <section>
525     <title>Upgrading from 4.2 to 4.4</title>
526     <body>
527    
528     <p>
529     Upgrading from Xfce 4.2 to 4.4 isn't hard, but neither is it as simple as most
530     upgrades. With the release of 4.4, many older packages are either deprecated, or
531     their functionality has been included into the desktop in some other manner.
532     </p>
533    
534     <p>
535     First, update your Portage tree (<c>emerge --sync</c>), then see what Xfce
536     updates are available (<c>emerge -pvtuD world</c>).
537     </p>
538    
539     <p>
540     You'll notice that there will be a list of packages that block upgrading, as
541     most 4.2 packages cannot coexist with 4.4 packages. Here, the solution is pretty
542     straightforward: just unmerge the blocking packages, as described in the <uri
543     link="/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=2&amp;chap=1">Portage
544     Handbook</uri> and <c>man emerge</c>, then continue with the update.
545     </p>
546    
547     <p>
548     Next, you may need to rebuild certain packages, such as applications linked
549     against <c>dbus</c>. You'll need to first install <c>gentoolkit</c> for this.
550     Then, once <c>gentoolkit</c> is installed, run:
551     </p>
552    
553     <pre caption="Rebuilding packages">
554     # <i>revdep-rebuild -p</i>
555     <comment>(If you see any output about broken packages, run this next command)</comment>
556     # <i>revdep-rebuild</i>
557     </pre>
558    
559     <note>
560     For more information, please read <c>man revdep-rebuild</c> and our <uri
561     link="/doc/en/gentoolkit.xml">Gentoolkit Guide</uri>.
562     </note>
563    
564     <p>
565     Once the rebuild has finished, run <c>revdep-rebuild -p</c> again, just to make
566     sure you have a clean and consistent world. If anything still shows up, keep
567     repeating <c>revdep-rebuild -p</c> and <c>revdep-rebuild</c> until there's no
568     more output about broken packages. Most Xfce update problems stem from
569     <c>dbus</c> issues, as Xfce uses <c>dbus</c> quite extensively.
570     </p>
571    
572     <p>
573     Next, restart <c>dbus</c> and/or <c>hal</c>.
574     </p>
575    
576     <pre caption="Restarting dbus and hal">
577     # <i>/etc/init.d/dbus restart</i>
578     # <i>/etc/init.d/hald restart</i>
579     </pre>
580    
581     <p>
582     Finally, give yourself a fresh environment.
583     </p>
584    
585     <pre caption="Updating the environment variables">
586     # <i>env-update &amp;&amp; source /etc/profile</i>
587     </pre>

593     <body>
594    
595     <p>
596     Make sure you familiarize yourself with all the new options available in the new
597     Settings Manager. Of interest are the options in the Desktop screen; Xfce can
598     now manage your desktop and place icons on it.
599     </p>
600    
601     <p>
602     There's also a Window Manager Tweaks screen, in which you can adjust the
603 nightmorph 1.6 behavior of windows, workspaces, and transparency (if enabled). Xfce 4.4 has
604     slightly changed the default behavior of workspaces and active window focus. If
605     you find that clicking a hyperlink in one workspace switches your browser to
606     that workspace from another one (or similar annoying window focus behavior), try
607     Settings --> Window Manager Tweaks --> Focus --> Activate Focus Stealing
608     Prevention.
