Which XFCE debian disk did you download?

I downloaded the weekly build a qouple of days ago, the md5sum checkout and the selftest on the CD checkout, but I got an error installing, "Error= the install can't locate any modules for the kernel your currently using," I tried to continue, but it didn't have drivers to locate the nic or the CD.

I did a netinstall of Etch from the beta version that was released before the release candidate - about a month ago. By default it installed a Gnome desktop, I then installed xfce by apt-get.

Ok I see, does just "apt-get install xfce" get the whole deal or is there several packages to get like KDE and Gnome do?

Xfce4 is a meta-package so 'apt-get install xfce4' should do it.

aketus, what's the program that displays the status info on the right side? I use gkrellm but what you got going looks pretty cool.

Edit: Went to your site and found out it's gdesklets, cool app.

I'm pretty sure it's not gdesklets but conky.

Yeah, you're right, thanks. Do you know why conky flickers when it updates?

From the FAQ from the Conky-site:
#
Q: Conky won't stop flickering

A: Conky is designed to draw to the root desktop window. However, there are several other applications which like drawing to the root desktop window. Because of this, Conky has two options available to get around this problem:

* You can try enabling double-buffer. Conky's double-buffer option uses the X double-buffer extension to provide a flicker-free Conky.

Soz for the late response: yeah conky. I *was* using gdesklets, and before that gkrellm, but I always was seeing something better on other people's desktops. Only found out the other day that it's conky.

I've had some odd quirks with conky, not so much flickering, but when I highlight areas of my desktop with my mouse, the highlight overwrites conky. After a few seconds it redraws itself.

Yeah, I've noticed some oddities also, so I went back to GKrellm.

It looked cool though, maybe they'll get it working fine one day.
