32    
33     <p>
34     <uri link="http://www.xfce.org">Xfce</uri> is a fast, lightweight desktop
35     environment for Unix-like operating systems. It is designed for productivity,
36     and is quite configurable while still adhering to the <uri
37     link="http://www.freedesktop.org">Freedesktop</uri> specifications.
38     </p>
39    
40     <p>
41     Unlike heavier desktop environments, such as Gnome and KDE, Xfce uses far fewer
42     system resources. Additionally, it offers greater modularity and fewer
43     dependencies; it takes up less space on your hard disk and takes less time to
44     install.
45     </p>
46    
47     <p>
48     This guide will not only show you how to install and configure a minimal Xfce
49     environment, but will also explore options to create a full-featured desktop in
50     keeping with the Xfce philosophy: light, fast, and modular.
51     </p>
52    
53 nightmorph 1.4 <p>
54     Additionally, this guide will show you how to <uri link="#upgrade">upgrade</uri>
55     from version 4.2 to 4.4.

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

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

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

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

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

177     <body>
178    
179     <p>
180     You might notice right-clicking on the desktop shows you the menu of all your
181     applications. It's useful, but your desktop can easily be completely obscured by
182     open windows, making it hard to to launch a new program. So, one of the first
183     things you may wish to do is give yourself a handy application menu on your
184     panel. Right click on this panel, and choose "Add New Item". Scroll through the
185     list of choices and select "Xfce Menu". You can choose where you want it to be
186     displayed on your panel. When clicked, it displays the application/preferences
187     menu, providing a nicely categorized list of your installed programs.
188     </p>
189

192     <section>
193     <title>Sessions &amp; startup</title>
194     <body>
195    
196     <p>
197     If you've installed (or plan to install) popular Gnome or KDE applications such
198     as <c>k3b</c>, <c>nautilus</c>, <c>kmail</c>, <c>evolution</c>, etc. then you
199     should make sure that Xfce launches the appropriate services for these at
200     startup. Navigate to Menu --> Settings --> Sessions &amp; Startup. On the
201     "Advanced" tab, select the appropriate checkbox. This might slightly increase
202     Xfce startup times, but it decreases load times for KDE and Gnome applications.
203     </p>
204    
205     <p>
206     Xfce has the ability to save your session settings and running programs from the
207     "General" tab in the Sessions &amp; Startup menu. They can be automatically
208     saved when you logout, or Xfce can ask you each time. This feature is
209     particularly useful for undoing configuration mistakes. Accidentally killed a
210     panel? Just select "No" when prompted to save your current session, and the next
211     time you start Xfce, your old desktop is restored. Want to automatically launch
212     your open webbrowser, terminal, and email client the next time you login? Just
213     save your session before logging out.
214     </p>
215    
216     <p>
217     You've now got a basic working environment installed and configured. But if
218     you're interested in doing more, then continue reading!

228     <title>Panel plugins</title>
229     <body>
230    
231     <p>
232     In this chapter, we'll discuss some useful plugins and applications for everyday
233     use within Xfce.
234     </p>
235    
236     <p>
237     There are many plugins for the panel available in Portage; see for yourself with
238     <c>emerge --search xfce</c>. Though for the most part their names are self
239     explanatory, a few deserve some attention, as they are quite helpful. To use
240     them, simply <c>emerge</c> them. They'll be added to the list of available items
241 nightmorph 1.4 in the "Add New Item" menu shown when you right-click on the panel.
242 nightmorph 1.1 </p>
243    
244     <ul>
245     <li>
246     <c>xfce4-mount</c> gives you a handy method of mounting devices listed in
247     <path>/etc/fstab</path> just by clicking your mouse
248     </li>
249     <li>
250     <c>xfce4-battery</c> is perfect for laptop users. It displays battery
251     percentage, time remaining, power source (AC or battery), fan status,
252     warnings, and can even be configured to execute commands at certain power
253     levels. This feature can be used to put the laptop into hibernate mode when
254     the battery is almost exhausted.
255     </li>
256     <li>
257 nightmorph 1.4 <c>verve</c> is a small command line embedded into the panel. It's quicker
258     than opening up another terminal when you want to run a command.
259     </li>
260     <li>
261     <c>xfce4-mixer</c> is a volume control. It works with both ALSA and OSS
262     sound applications.
263 nightmorph 1.1 </li>
264     </ul>
265    
266 nightmorph 1.4 <p>
267     If you can't find what you're looking for in the plugins specifically made for
268     Xfce, try searching through the list of Gnome panel applets! That's right, by
269     first emerging <c>xfce4-xfapplet</c>, you can install and run any applet made
270     for Gnome.
271     </p>

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

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

485     If you installed GDM as your display manager, take a look at the many GDM themes
486     available on <uri link="http://www.gnome-look.org">Gnome-Look</uri>. To install
487     them, you can either unpack and move them to
488     <path>/usr/share/gdm/themes/</path> on the command line, or you can run
489     <c>gdmsetup</c> as <b>root</b> and drag'n'drop the archive into the GDM window.
490     There are some <uri
491     link="http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=45575">very nice</uri>
492     Gentoo <uri
493     link="http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=20071">themes</uri>
494     available.
495     </p>
496    
497     <p>
498     Finally, Xfce has its own built-in compositor to manage window transparency.
499     This option can be found in Menu --> Settings --> Window Manager. For best
500     performance, you will need to be running a graphics card with drivers that
501 nightmorph 1.4 support hardware-accelerated rendering. Make sure you emerged <c>xfwm4</c> with
502     the <c>xcomposite</c> USE flag. Next, you will need to enable compositing in
503     <path>/etc/X11/xorg.conf</path> by adding the following section:
504 nightmorph 1.1 </p>
505    
506     <pre caption="Enabling composite in xorg.conf">
507     Section "Extensions"
508     Option "Composite" "Enable"
509     EndSection
510     </pre>
511    
512     <p>
513     This is the bare minimum configuration required for Xfce and Xorg-X11. However,
514     setting up hardware-accelerated rendering depends on your individual graphics
515     card, and is beyond the scope of this guide. Please see the other guides in the
516     <uri link="/doc/en/index.xml?catid=desktop">Desktop Documentation
517     Resources</uri> list to learn about configuring hardware-accelerated rendering
518     for your graphics card.

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

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