Thanks wxsin. Smile Menus need a bit of re-organisation but everything tested so far works well.

LATER: A number of problems discovered - see below.

It seems impossible to do a clean shutdown?

I'd love to give this a spin, but when I click on the link, dropbox says that no file exists.

The Xfce main run script should check if JWM is the current WM.
If it is, then the script should run the setup procedures described above.
This is how most Firefox setups that I`ve seen are done.

Running the app. should check if all is proper, and fix it if it`s not...

Sub_title: another working XFCE4 desktop...
 

Hi Folks,

It would seem that since wxsin hasn't posted since Nov. 2nd ( I can't see from this text box when the last time was that he's edited his post - sorry! ) that he's either no longer monitoring this thread, no longer following Puppy development or - perhaps like what just recently happened to me in my case - has had computer problems and therefore can't reply to this thread. I hope it is not the last! My own example was definitely NO FUN! Sad

At any rate, if you would still like a working and modern XFCE4-4.10 desktop .sfs then Jejy69 has been maintaining one which will work upon either Precise or Slacko Puppy and it may be found for download here: http://lxpup.weebly.com/xfce.html

I hope this info has helped someone out there.

Cheers/Amicalement,

Eyes-Only
