Hi, I'm new to the Xubuntu list. I just downloaded the installation iso
files for Xubuntu 9.10 It will be installed to the partition I currently
have Kubuntu Jaunty installed. 

I used to be a die hard kde fan until kde4... I currently usually use
enlightenment but I've wanted to give xfce a shot And I'm reasonably sure
that since Xubuntu is based on ubuntu, I Will be able to easily apt-get any
kde applications I can't do without. So here I am. I do hope I can figure
out xfce well enough not to have to install "kubuntu-desktop" just to get
the daemon I know... And I thought I might try asking a few dumb questions.

How can I modify whatever xfce uses for "global keyboard shortcuts" ??

{This is key, as I'm very keyboard centric. And I'm kinda set in my ways.
So I will need to set up bindings that my fingers already know...}

Also, like I said above, I know I can apt-get any kde applications I can't do
without. But I'd like to check out whatever equivalent applications as were
chosen for Xubuntu... But I don't know which ones they would be.

For example instead of k3b I should try what???

Likewise are there good equivalents for:

kaffeine, okular, & yakuake???

And lastly, if anyone has any recommendations or URLs to good how-tos for
former kde users trying to adapt to xfce and/or Xubuntu... Please do tell.
