Hello and welcome

that is interesting, since besides including esound in the package list I
didn't do anyting.
Are you sure you're not running gnome services on startup? I am trying to
make esd
start by default but right now AFAIK it doesn't.

Speaking about the login interface I wanto to remember that ther is also
> wdm that is lighter than both gdm and kdm.

I saw on the ubuntulite.org <http://ubuntulite.org> site that they have
tested that too and it was the slowest apparently

I'd like to report a little bug: on the standard panel of xubuntu the link

in the panel or the desktop menu? In the panel it used ot be xfterm4 which
something appropriate in turn, but in the latest xfce4-panel package I took
out the terminal from the panel
altogether. There's only desktop menu, firefox and the standard xfce plugins
(settings, desktops, print, clock etc)

For image viewing I use GQview, that's fast, light and full-featured, and
> fbi for the consoles (fbi can also be a pdf viewer for text consoles).

I use gqview too from time to time. Besides not having sane keybindings for
rotate I like it.

I suggest also grip for cd ripping

that has gnome dependencies. It may be on the CD but not in the default
desktop package.
