Using XFCE with GDM

If you are using XFCE with GDM and are tortured by the “slow keys”-feature after holding down Shift, you might want to take a look at this: bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=816764 I don’t remember when I had this problem, but I feel it was sitting around as a draft long enough. I hope this can help someone out there! I can’t test it anymore, since I’ve been using MATE for some time now.

Multilingual-/Foreign character support

Over the course of time I got annoyed by how long it takes to properly install non-latin language support for a browser, so here’s a (hopefully quick) way to get it working. Note: For the changes to take effect, I had to restart my browser. I’m using Chrome 23 on Debian with XFCE. According to Wikipedia’s “Multilingual support (East Asian)”, you need to install these packages for Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese. sudo apt-get install ttf-arphic-uming ttf-wqy-zenhei ttf-sazanami-mincho ttf-sazanami-gothic ttf-unfonts-core That worked perfectly for me, let’s move on to Multilingual support (Indic). On my installation I was missing support for Kannada, Telugu, Tibetan, Khmer and Burmese.

Edit XFCE menu with LXMenuEditor

I was searching ways to edit the XFCE menu with a GUI, because I didn’t feel like messing around with all the .desktop files. I then got pointed to LXMenuEditor (or LXMed for short), a graphical menu editor designed for LXDE, but it works just as fine in XFCE. Here’s what you have to do to install it. wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/lxmed/files/lxmed-20120515.tar.gz/download tar -xf lxmed-20120515.tar.gz cd lxmed chmod +x install.sh sudo ./install.sh That should be it, now you are ready to start the programme from the menu.
