== About Xfce ==
+
{{DISQUS}}
  
Xfce is a lightweight desktop environment for UNIX-like operating systems. It aims to be fast and low on system resources, while still being visually appealing and user friendly.
+
Please keep DISQUS chats at the top of talk pages.
  
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.
+
__TOC__
  
Another priority of Xfce is adhereance to standards, specifically those defined at [http://freedesktop.org/ freedesktop.org]. [http://www.xfce.org/about/ About XFCE]

have a problem with the parameter getting passed as the first parameter.

we should have a section dedicated to explaining how to watch pages that an editor is knowledgeable about, and how to use the watch list to keep the pages clean, concise, and accurate.
 +
ie if i know about the web server stack i watch that, and pages related to that...  (i think i might need to turn off watching pages i touch automatically...)
  
* Verify that you have [[Funtoo_Linux_First_Steps#X.Org|X.Org Server]] configured properly.
+
To watch, or unwatch a page:
 +
in the menu bar {{c|Actions > Watch}} or {{c|Actions > Unwatch}}
  
We are now ready to install Xfce. Install the meta-package, which pulls in all of the components you need for a minimal Xfce installation:
+
To display the watchlist:
 +
in the menu bar {{c|account > watchlist}}
  
{{console|body=###i## emerge xfce4-meta}}
+
rss codes should be also generated to easily track the watch list so everyone gets pinged when a change occurs.  [[User:Threesixes|Threesixes]] ([[User talk:Threesixes|talk]]) 03:55, March 27, 2015 (UTC)
  
== Running Xfce ==
+
=== Special Characters ===
  
There are several different ways to start Xfce:
+
To produce pipes: <pre>{{!}}</pre>
 +
generates: {{!}}
  
* Editing the {{c|.xinitrc}} file in your user's home directory and using {{c|startx}} from a text console.
+
To produce equals: <pre>{{=}}</pre>
* Using a display manager (e.g. SLiM, GDM, and KDM).
+
generates: {{=}}
* Configuring your shell profile to automatically start Xfce upon a successful login.
+
  
=== .xinitrc ===
+
=== delete template ===
 +
to flag a page as a candidate for deletion, insert
 +
<pre>{{delete}}</pre>
 +
at the top of a page.
  
The most common way to start the environment is to configure {{c|~/.xinitrc}} to launch an Xfce session. The proper way to launch Xfce from the terminal is by using {{c|startxfce4}} combined with {{c|ck-launch-session}}.
+
{{delete}}

{{console|body=$##i## echo "exec startxfce4 --with-ck-launch" > ~/.xinitrc}}
+
=== Minor edits ===
 +
Check minor edits to note that your commit is a small commit.  A minor edit can be filtered out of logs when searching through them.
  
Note that {{c|--with-ck-launch}} (from ConsoleKit) is required by Xfce for important tasks such as shutting down, suspending, and automatically mounting removable storage media. Some applications will not work properly without it. Therefore we need to add ConsoleKit to the {{c|default}} runlevel, executing the following command as root:
+
=== video playlists ===
 +
i have several examples of how to embed playlists in [[Programming]] but there are no examples in how to wiki.
  
{{console|body=
+
=== links ===
###i## rc-update add consolekit default
+
fixing a broken link brought this subject to my attention.
###i## rc
+
[www.link.com is this a bug?] && [link.com shouldn't this work?] do not work...  brackets or not.
}}
+
  
Finally, to start the graphical environment, run {{c|startx}} from a login shell:
+
no protocol defined external links <nowiki>[//test.com //test.com]</nowiki> produces (use these style links)
{{console|body=$##i## startx}}
+
[//test.com //test.com]
  
== Display Manager ==
+
no bracket links:
 +
http://google.com
 +
(regardless that this service only offers https)
  
A display manager is a program that manages sessions and acts as a login screen. Here's a short list of a few of the display managers available in Funtoo:
+
=== Image Embedding ===
 +
To embed images:
 +
<pre>[[File:Nginx.gif|class=img-responsive|center]]</pre>
 +
[[File:Nginx.gif|class=img-responsive|center]]
  
* XDM ({{c|x11-apps/xdm}}): X.Org's standard display manager.
+
=== how to talk pages ===
  
* LightDM ({{c|x11-misc/lightdm}}): A lightweight, but highly configurable display manager.
+

* SLiM ({{c|x11-misc/slim}}): Simple Login Manager -- a lightweight display manager. Not very configurable.

Any of these would make a fine choice. After you've chosen which display manager to use, install it:
+
{{tip| <pre>~~~ && ~~~~ && ~~~~~</pre> produces [[User:Threesixes|Threesixes]] ([[User talk:Threesixes|talk]]) && [[User:Threesixes|Threesixes]] ([[User talk:Threesixes|talk]]) 22:41, 26 September 2014 (UTC) && 22:41, 26 September 2014 (UTC)}}
 
+
{{console|body=###i## emerge lightdm}}
+
 
+
All that's left to do now is to add the name of the display manager to {{c|/etc/conf.d/xdm}}, add the {{c|xdm}} service to the {{c|default}} runlevel, and start the service:
+
 
+
<pre>
+
DISPLAYMANAGER="lightdm"
+
</pre>
+
 
+
{{console|body=
+
###i## rc-update add xdm default
+
###i## /etc/init.d/xdm start}}
+
 
+
==Power Group==
+
 
+
If you wish to be able to shutdown/reboot/suspend/hibernate using xfce4-logout-session then you will need to add yourself or the user to the power group by:
+
 
+
{{console|body=
+
###i## gpasswd -a <username> power
+
}}
+
  
If the group does not exist then execute the following and try again:

To watch, or unwatch a page: in the menu bar Actions > Watch or Actions > Unwatch

To display the watchlist: in the menu bar account > watchlist

rss codes should be also generated to easily track the watch list so everyone gets pinged when a change occurs. Threesixes (talk) 03:55, March 27, 2015 (UTC)
