Xfce In Fedora

Xfce is a lightweight desktop environment available in Fedora. It aims to be fast and lightweight, while still being visually appealing and easy to use.

Getting Xfce

Live CD

There is an official Fedora-Spin dedicated to the Xfce desktop. It is available for both 32bit and 64bit architectures. This live cd comes pre-configured to make “your desktop...speedier!”

Fedora installation DVD

If you have downloaded the Fedora DVD, you can install Xfce by selecting "XFCE" group in "Desktop Environments"


Installation using yum

If you have an existing system and would like to install xfce you can use yum to install the desktop.

To install Xfce using yum, execute the following as root:

yum groupinstall XFCE

After installing Xfce you can use the "Session" menu to choose a Xfce login instead of a GNOME or KDE login.
