	Okay, okay, guys (and gals?), I get the point.  My only reason for
asking the list instead of Googling is that, being new to XFCE, I knew I
would miss some salient details if I Googled.

	For instance, I didn't know (I do now, thanks to a kind soul on this
list) that it was a 3rd party app--written by one of the developers.
This helps me in deciding whether or not to install the app seperate, as
I thought it was a package I had missing from my Libranet 3.0 (debian
based) install.

	As it is, xfmedia is NOT part of the basic install and is not even on
the normal apt repositories for Libranet--nor Debian for that matter
(just checked).

	So I humbly apologize for my apparent laziness and will refrain from
asking questions of the list that most normal XFCE users wouldn't ask.
I've been using Linux far too long...

	Maybe, in the future, if I have a question, I'll muddle through it
myself--like I used to in the old days before Gnome and KDE became
household names...
