I am Paola from Italy. I have been using linux for the past two years and currently I am running MX linux 21. I tried gnome, kde, xfce and then I decided to give kde another chance, attracted by some functionalities. But I love xfce and a few weeks ago I went from Tumbleweed kde to mx linux xfce. I want a stable system and I hope that in this way I have found what I want.

Re: Hi!

I've tried MX's lighter cousin, AntiX, and really like it.  I will stay with Debian, but hope to use antiX in a couple VMs and put it on a usb.  On even a cheap-qulaity 2.0 usb, antiX is very fast - but, that was using Fluxbox.  I hope to try xfce's lighter cousin xfwm on antiX - since i am already familiar with xfce

Re: Hi!

Xfwm4 is just Xfce's window manager. They're not in the same category.

Xfce itself works with a lot of different managers but Xfwm4 fits it the best.

Remember to edit the subject of your topic to include the [SOLVED] tag once you're satisfied with the answers or have found a solution (in which case, don't forget to share it as well), so that other members of the community can quickly refer to it and save their time. Pretty please! tongue

Re: Hi!

Hi and welcome to the forum! I use MX as well! I also have antiX on one of my older computers and it runs like a champ! I distro hopped for years, then finally stayed with Linux Mint Xfce for a long time until I discovered MX Linux. I'm quite happy with MX Linux and antiX Linux! Xfce has always been my favorite desktop environment!
