Xfce Tips & Tricks:

  • Create your own dock in Xfce by creating another panel and autohiding
  • Use my monitor switching script on Github to add shortcut key to move windows between monitors.
  • Xfce-goodies install (extra artwork, quick launchers, etc.)
  • Xfce has a layout switcher – called Xfce PanelSwitch so if you don’t like the default layout you can easily try something else

Software Spotlight:

Etcher – Reliable, simple and it’s fast. Most people may say to DD but there are mistakes that can happen with dd so we normally recommend Etcher.
