So, your preferred desktop is Xfce. I tried and didn't find Xubuntu so likeable (stylewise - there's no other reason to try Xubuntu than the desktop, is there?). In the order of my own preference, Manjaro, Mint, and Lite all have easily superior Xfce desktops when compared to Xubuntu.
When I opened up Xubuntu the first time, the desktop looked terribly bleak and screamed for customisation. So, naturally I opened up the settings and got on with it, but the choice of themes was, well, not there. Lite also looks kind of bleak at first, but it's packed with many themes, so it's quick to customise the look, while other defaults were mostly sane and workable for me.
Then maybe you are not so aesthetically inclined.
Apparently Cinnamon is really coming together. I personally settled on Debian Wheezy Xfce and Xubuntu, but it might well be worth a look--especially if you're looking for a different upgrade path than Windows 8.http://www.linuxmint.com/http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/linux-mint-petra.html
Cinnamon works well as a desktop. Mint itself committed an insta-kernal panic when I tried to boot off the livedvd. I'm not saying Mint is bad, just that something about it evidently doesn't get along with my hardware. So I put Cinnamon on Ubuntu. I did find it a little odd that Ubuntu works just fine for me, but Mint doesn't.
(Hear that, Opera? Lack of little things the user even doesn't necessarily need everyday cause them to not stick with your product...sorry :p )
Does anyone know how to troubleshoot X concerning logout crashes?
Quote from: ersi on 2014-01-04, 11:12:21Does anyone know how to troubleshoot X concerning logout crashes?See /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old, that's the log file from the previous Xserver run and may contain some hints on what exactly crashed it. Assuming the Xserver actually crashed and not some client.
What is a client? Is gnome-session-daemon or cinnamon-session-daemon a client?
