As some of you might already have noticed, we are working on a better integration of Xfce in openSUSE. The aim of the Xfce Project is to establish Xfce as well-accepted desktop environment besides GNOME and KDE. We have already started building Xfce LiveCDs with KIWI but still fail in getting yast-live to work.
Besides that we had some success in the re-design process, so this is how the upcoming Xfce in openSUSE might look like:
Miguel Cruz has provided his great CrashBit theme and designed a few new icons to improve Xfce support.
I have also finished a SLiM Display Manager theme and work on some packages for that. There is still a lot of work to be done and things to coordinate. We are going to set up a oS Xfce Mailing List soon, that all interested people should join. In the near future I am continuing to blog about the current development process, so stay tuned.
Update: The Mailinglist is now availabl.: To subscribe send an eMail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have also added an upgraded screenshot showing how it would look like using the Gilouche Window decoration.
