Hey guys keep cool - I like XFCE as it is for desktop and only think
about few small tweaks to have it also on touchscreen environments. If
I say touchscreen I mean single touch / no gestures / smaller
resolution. Many things I need are already there and can be
configured. As I said I am just looking for small and optional tweaks
(e.g devilspie - thanks killermoehre) nothing else.
