Detailed Description

The Fedora Xfce spin showcases the Xfce desktop, which aims to be fast and lightweight, while still being visually appealing and user friendly.

Xfce is a full fledged desktop using the freedesktop.org standard.


Benefit to Fedora

The Xfce Spin is of great value to users on older/slower machines as well as a number of folks that just prefer it to alternatives. It also works well as a base for users who wish a even lighter desktop setup.

Scope / Testing

  • Spin should boot to gdm and allow Xfce4 as the session.
  • Automatic login should occur and leave a user at the base Xfce desktop
  • Basic Desktop functions should be tested: Launching applications from menu, changing background, switching desktops.
  • Basic adding plugins to the panel should be tested with the included plugins via alt right click on the panel.
  • nm-applet should be available in the default panel and function as per it's tests
  • The default Xfce launchers on the bottom panel should all work and launch their indicated applications.
  • On idle, gnome-screensaver should launch and lock the screen.
  • On logout, Xfce should ask to save your session and do so if indicated.
