Skip,
     To see what version of Xfce you are running click Applications->About
Xfce ... if you are running Edgy it should say "version 4.3.99.1 (Xfce
4.4BETA2)". I don't know off the top of my head what it will say for
Dapper (I
just copied and pasted that line from my "about Xfce" window). If you would
like to install Xfce4.4 Stable manually, it can be done from
www.xfce.organd there is a user friendly graphical installer to make
the process as
painless as possible.
