Unfortunately, you have not created a ready-made binary packets for RHEL 6.0 operating system.
RedHat company also does not create them.
It is inexplicable why there is such a cool attitude of XFCE and RHEL.
Scientific Linux 6.0 too.
And how can I install XFCE on RHEL 6.0 ?
Do not offer to compile the reference texts, because I do not have any desire to recourse to this barbaric method.
Abdula, the Xfce team is not responsible for providing binary packages, it is the responsibility of the distros (that is the very definition of a distribution). You should either post your request to the developers of your distro, or move to a distro that has Xfce packages. Here is a list of distros with Xfce: http://www.xfce.org/download/distros

keep on rockin' in the free world
Please have a look at the EPEL repositories: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL. As far as I know Xfce is provided there.
for CentOS 5 there is also an extras repository which may works with RHEL as well: http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories

REHL, Fedora and CentOS use the same package manager : RPM.
So you can get it on other distros repositories.
can I install the xfce-desttop.rpm from fedora.iso to RHEL6？RHEL6 is my host pc.
I want to build the xfce-desktop.src.rpm in my RHEL6, but there are so many depend relationship.
I need the build envirorment.
The EPEL repo provide xfdesktop.rpm.

Activate the EPEL repo and you don't need to rebuild the fedora package.
In general on koji (fedora bulid system) you find rpm's and src.rpm's from fedora for xfce. Use the one from fc15, they are based on xfce 4.8.
Life's too short for boring desktops
