I want to install Xfce without xubuntu-desktop or ubuntustudio-desktop (original Xfce 4.10, without extras). I too want to keep Unity (and Unity 2D) on my computer. Is the xfce-meta package great for that?
Thanks in advance!


To install Xfce 4.10 (the newest version of this desktop environment) on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS you should follow these steps:

Add the ppa that will allow you to install the Xfce 4.10:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.10

Update the system:

sudo apt-get update

Install Xfce 4.10:

sudo apt-get install xfce4
