Re: Xfce and FC2 (installs, but not fully functional?)



If you go to www.xfce.org, then go to their overview page. It lists all
the components of Xfce by package and gives a brief description of what
it does. You could then install those packages off the cd. Not a
convenient way of doing it, but you'll get everything you need.
