Adding Contribution Repository
Firstly, add the contrib repository. Look here for instructions.
To install Xfce4, we must install all of the Xfce packages and their dependencies. This can be achieved through two methods. The first method involves using the Pardus Package Manager. Open up the Pardus Package Manager and proceed to select all of the packages from the XFCE category, followed by selecting the install button. This will install Xfce4 and any subsequent dependencies that may be.
Alternatively open a console (Konsole) and enter
To install Xfce4, you need to get all packages of desktop.xfce4 component. You can do that by installing all packages from the XFCE category you see when you open the PISI package manager or by entering in console:
sudo pisi it -c desktop.xfce4 -d
Xfce is installed but we should do some configuration changes.
You need to build the kdmtheme application and change the login theme in order to see the Xfce4 option.
Type in console:
sudo pisi it kdmtheme -d
Configure it by writing:
sudo kcmshell kdmtheme
Please select another login theme and press OK
After that, we should move ".gtkrc-2.0" file to the home directory.Type:
mv ~/.gtkrc-2.0 ~/.gtkrc-2.0.backup
Xfce is ready! Please, shutdown the session and select the Xfce option from the start screen and then login ;)
