Xfce is a lightweight desktop environment for unix-like operating systems. It aims to be fast and lightweight, while still being visually appealing and user friendly.

Xfce embodies the traditional UNIX philosophy of modularity and re-usability. It consists of a number of components that provide the full functionality one can expect of a modern desktop environment. They are packaged separately and you can pick among the available packages to create the optimal personal working environment.

Another priority of Xfce is adhereance to standards, specifically those defined at freedesktop.org.

Xfce can be installed on several UNIX platforms. It is known to compile on Linux, NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris, Cygwin and MacOS X, on x86, PPC, Sparc, Alpha…

The “Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment” is an extremely fast-performing and energy-saving desktop environment. Maintained by an international community of developers, it comes with a beautiful interface, multi-language support, standard keyboard short cuts and additional features like tabbed file browsing. LXDE uses less CPU and less RAM than other environments. It is especially designed for cloud computers with low hardware specifications, such as, netbooks, mobile devices (e.g. MIDs) or older computers. LXDE can be installed with many Linux distributions including Ubuntu, Debian and Fedora. It is the standard for Knoppix and lubuntu. LXDE also runs with OpenSolaris and BSD. LXDE provides a fast desktop experience; connecting easily with applications in the cloud. LXDE supports a wealth of programs that can be installed locally with Linux systems.

Ubuntu中安装与卸载KDE桌面方法

Ubuntu中安装与卸载KDE桌面方法:

Refers to:
http://linux.chinaitlab.com/desk/742833.html

——————————————————————————–
进入Ubuntu的默认安装的桌面后打开终端,输入

sudo apt-get install kUbuntu-desktop

回车后输入密码

接下来提示下载KDE需要多少空间,解压后需要多少空间,询问是否安装,输入 Y 或 N;

输入Y后则开始下载安装了,下载KDE大约要100多MB,需要很长的时间;如果觉得一次安装时间太长也没关系,Ubuntu提供了断点续传,你可以每次开机下载一些。

默认的KDE为英文界面,可以使用这条命令 安装中文环境。

sudo apt-get install language-pack-kde-zh language-pack-kde-zh-base language-pack-zh language-pack-zh-base language-support-zh

安装好后重新启动,你就会发现原来启动界面的Ubuntu变成了KUbuntu了。接下来就看到登录界面了,你会发现,这里可以选择用户名了,不会像原来 Ubuntu要用户自己输入用户名。

这个时候如果不进行设置的话,你会发现直接登录后界面并没有发生变化还是原来的界面哦 。

那怎么进入KUbuntu的界面中呢。其实在你选择用户进行登录的界面的时候,你留心一下在边上有一个有一个像文本框一样的图标,你点击这个图标,会话方式中选择KDE,再登录后你就会发现已经是KDE的界面了。
