Hi! My first post.
OS: Ubuntu 12.04
Computer: Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop (4 GB RAM)
I can run Ubuntu in Unity 3D without any discomfort but I heard so much about the lightness of Xfce. So I installed xfce4 and xfce4-goodies from the Ubuntu Software Center and I've been choosing Xfce session at login. Now that a 4.10 ppa is available from Launchpad (https://launchpad.net/~xubuntu-dev/+archive/xfce-4.10), I intend installing it. My question is this: will there be a problem because I already have 4.8 installed from the USC? Do I first have to uninstall 4.8 (after logging into Unity 2D or 3D)? Or, can I install the ppa while in the Xfce 4.8 session? (I'm a relative newbie to Linux.)
I went ahead and installed from the ppa I referenced in the first post. While in a Unity 3D session, I did the installation using the Ubuntu Software Manager. I was informed it would be a "partial" upgrade and that a dist-upgrade would be done. I went ahead.
Logged out and into Xfce. All seems okay so far.
I installed this ppa in Xubuntu 12.04 and it works great. Very good job.
Hey guys, yes, that ppa is the currect ppa.
Its in webupd8
But here is to install in xubuntu
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.10 -y && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y
Do not install the other.
If ANY PROBLEMS APPEARS go to the Synaptic and then fix from there.
After fix the fings, everything will be ok.
