I did a bit of pruning today on the Xfce spin, as it had gotten way way
+-adobe-source-han-* # save 94MB
+-rodent-icon-theme # save 34MB
+-skkdic # save 25MB
+-naver-nanum-gothic-fonts # save 14MB
I also remove liferea from the comps group (this pulled in webkitgtk3
and should save us a good bit of room)
I also added evince (we had no pdf reader and it was pretty small) and
I suspect we will still be over, but we can see tomorrow how much and
see what we might be able to further adjust.
I've been pondering right now how to mount ISO from within Thunar and found
that the required functionality is in gvfs-archive, which was not installed
on my system (f20 xfce live + various things I installed afterwards). I
wonder if we could include it in the xfce spin/group, so that people can
easily mount compressed archives, isos, etc. It works in Thunar pretty well,
I am in the "thinking" phase of putting together an Xfce,
FC20 workstation for a customer. Anyone have a favorite
stand alone calendar and address book I could pre-load it with?
you can use Yumex (instead of PackageKit). Yumex has an option to
minimize to system tray, there will be an icon then that can show the
availabilty of updates.
