    Where is the config file that I have to edit to add XFCE as a new desktop?

  2. Nikesh Says:

    After doing the installation, logout and on login screen you can find the entry for XFCE in “session” link.

    Hi Nikesh.

    It’s migmam again.
    What do I have to do if I want XFCE as the unique desktop system in fedora and not to select on from a menu?


  4. Nikesh Jauhari Says:

    For this you need to edit
    /etc/syconfig/desktop file and add the required entry

    If you type:

    switchdesk window-manager

    where window-manager is KDE GNOME XFCE whatever.

    It’ll do it for you.
