First, download the ipk from here: XFCE4.2.2
I installed it to /mnt/usr with no glitches.
Second, delete the ~/.cache and ~/.config folders.
Third, you will need to add
xrandr -o right
to ~.xinitrc.xfce4. The place to add it is right before “xfce4-session”.
On the C-1000, XFCE launches in portrait mode. This switches the orientation to landscape.
Fourth, if you are using a usb mouse, you'll need to modify the serverargs line in /usr/local/bin/startxfce4 so that it reads:
Currently in pdaXrom rc10.4 you can use the touchscreen or the mouse (not both) during the same session, so I saved this file as “startxfce4m”. When I want to launch xfce4 and use the mouse, I use startxfce4m.
To change permissions for the new "startxfce4m" go to a console and type:
chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/startxfce4m
That should do it. Exit matchbox and at # type “startxfce4” or “startxfce4m” (if you want to use a mouse) and hit enter. XFCE should launch.
I have made two modifications that help out with the smaller screen on the C-1000: I moved the taskbar to the bottom of the screen, dragged the panel to the top of the screen, and enabled “autohide” for both. For me, it is easier to bring up the panel with the stylus when it is at the top of the screen. With both the taskbar and panel autohidden, you have the whole screen to work with. Go to XFCE's "Settings" menu to make the changes for the panel and taskbar.
Using XFCE resolved one of my chief annoyances with pdaXrom: the many windows which are oversized for the screen.
Anyway, I hope this helps.
