XPDE in fedora....


Recommended Posts

have a look at this, i installed XPDE in fedora core release 1,

 

you can get it yourself at http://www.xpde.com

 

quite a nice 'xp' lookalike theme for linux, but seems to be a bit buggy

 

what do you think ?

 

cheers

How did you make it work? I'm running FC1 updated with KDE 3.2. I downloaded Xpde ran the install script as root and the setup script as a regular user. Then I changed the file initrcDEFAULT in the regular user's home directory to ./initrc and restarted X. I still get my KDE desktop and Xpde is not in the list of desktops I can load.

 

Any suggestions?

hmm its a while since i did it but i think i edited my dm sessions, i got it to list on the sessions screen but nothing happened when i chose it, so i edited /etc/inittab and changed the 5 to a 3, saved it, and then started xpde manually,

 

can't remember how, think it was .xinitrc or something

 

it's in the xpde readme anyway

 

cheers
