Hey all. A couple of questions about different window managers. First off I'm looking at xfce.

Is there an easy way for me to get all of the matchbox icons over to xfce?

Is there a way to get xfce to auto-rotate (or rotate at all for that matter)?

I use and like xfce. All the matchbox icons are in '/usr/share/pixmaps', and Chero's default installation stuff sorts out the menus with icons automatically included.

In the xfce control panel under Window Manager => Keyboard you can set shortcut keys. Just map the rotate button to run this little script:

CODE
#!/bin/sh

ROTA=`xrandr | grep 'Current rotation' | sed -e 's/Current rotation\ \-\ //g'`

case "$ROTA" in
   normal)
       /etc/sysconfig/clamshell/portrait.sh
      ;;
   left)
       /etc/sysconfig/clamshell/landscape.sh
      ;;
   *)
       /etc/sysconfig/clamshell/landscape.sh
      ;;
esac


I'm sure I copied it from somewhere - possibly Chero's info?

xfce is also a good choice to start with because it runs alongside openbox without overwriting anything, so you can always use that if you get stuck smile.gif

Uhm.... what do you think about gpe-dm + xfce?
I think it could be an interesting interface.
I will try it out.
Just compiled GPE-filemanager for the Beta4 and i think it' s the best FM for thew Zauri as it was born with the PDA in mind.
It' s complete with the mime.
BYEZ!
