Can this be done? Gnome + xfce desktop

Postby pcfan5 » Fri Sep 14, 2018 7:36 pm

Hello , I would like to ask something we already spoke about, but cannot find the thread, and I don't want to ask here viewtopic.php?f=14&t=14034&p=61582&hilit=different+desktops#p61582 because it is another issue.
I love Zorin Lite, I want to make a fresh install in my laptop, but this has i5 and 4 gb ram so I thought maybe I could install Core , because I love the views , but I would like to have the xfce clock , and panel, is there a way to mix things...?

In fact what I want to do is to have Zorin lite, but with the option to see in "general view" my icons, such like this :

and this:

what shall I Do?

Ps: I found interesting, but don't know if this apply to what I am trying to achieve.... this package:"desktop-profiles" has this features:
Code: Select all
[quote][quote]The different Desktop environments in Debian all offer the possibility of
customizing them through the use of profiles (sets of configuration and/or
data files). Usually it's also possible to stack configuration sets,
combining the customizations provided by a number of profiles.

This package offers a standard cross-desktop way of managing the conditional
activation of available profiles. As such it is useful to both administrators
(allowing different configurations for different sets of users) [/quote][/quote]

As my dear old Dad used to say "If in doubt ... DON'T!" - so stay clear. As for the second option, you need a Debian system to run the profiles you quoted, either Debian itself or a nice Windows lookalike - Makulu Lindoz 15. Looking forward to Makulu Lefthe late autumn.

I understand... maybe that feature is ment to be in Core for a reason... however I would like to know if it is called "pantheom" or perhaps it has another name..?

Open up Synaptic Package Manager and search for Pantheon. ;)
