Good!! Xfce integrates with KDE

Postby bester69 » 2017-03-20 15:45

I was trying today xfce under stretch, and to my surprise It integrates very well with plasma-kde,

- It use dolphin browser as a default
- It detect kde startup shortcuts
- It detect kde user hotkeys
- kmail running pretty well.

So, now, it might be seen as an alternative a lighter KDE DE, running this kind of mix XFce/KDE.

I like it.

Or maybe KDE integrates well with XFCE. So, now, it might be seen as an alternative as a heavier XFCE DE.

There is also razor-qt and LXQT for those who want that lightweight experience with Qt libraries.

Just throwing it out there.

The fact that one can run KDE apps inside Xfce (and vice versa) is not exactly news.

But "lighter"? Strictly speaking, yeah, but not by all that much. Yes, the baseline "footprint" in terms of RAM/CPU is indeed markedly different between the two DEs. But by the time one loads up Xfce with all the KDE libraries necessary to run Dolphin, KMail, etc., the difference just isn't all that big. If one likes KDE apps, unless one is really short on resources (or gratuitously wasteful of them, like the OP), there's little reason not to just run KDE.

I have to agree that xfce in stretch is looking good, but I've been trying to strip it down, not adding more to it.

I took out sofar: avahi, libreoffice, xsane, gvfs

added: mc, pulseaudio, smartmontools, gdisk, mesa-utils

got it to 1.7G of disk space, uses about 350M of ram with a lynyrd skynard album playing.

Still haven't picked a browser yet though, and a lot of other stuff, no screensaver, no aptitude... and synaptic want 200M of updates.

How much ram consume at KDE+Xfce start up/idle I wonder? :)
