I spent several evenings downloading, configuring, compiling and installing Xfce from source code. First of, the documentation for version 4.6.1 is not released yet, and following the documentation for 4.4 is sometimes incomplete or even misleading. Moreover, the configure script complained about a couple of missing libraries, which was not true. I solves this by creating two .pc entries for pkg-config, just out of the blue.
Now it works. Well, kind of. Some icons do not display, a couple of Xfce-related applications crash, but everything else behaves exactly as it did in KDE. So the only thing letf is to hunt down the cause of crashes and I’m done.
Shall I really switch from KDE-3.4 to Xfce-4.6?
