So XFCE4.10 has an Official Xubuntu PPA now! That means that we can now use the Official PPA stable instead of the previously mentioned XFCE4.10-pre release
Here is how you can do it…
So while Dan Rabbit’s elementaryOS is still considered a “work in progress”, you can, however, with the help of Ubuntu 12.04 set up the needed PPA’s and get yourself this new Desktop Environment and play with it. It should be noted that “luna” is considered “unstable”, but I will be honest with you, I have not really had any issues with it what so ever, or at least nothing that a sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade could not fix.
But as i am using Proxmox VE with openVZ it have some little changes to do in the guide so let get it started!
1 Configure the Hostname
At this point you should already have setup the networking here and should be all functional to be able to follow this guide
Edit /etc/hosts. Make it look like this:
Note: The ip 192.168.0.100 is only an example you will have to put your own ip here
echo server1.example.com > /etc/hostname /etc/init.d/hostname.sh start
hostname hostname -f
It is important that both show server1.example.com now!
2 Update Your Debian Installation
First make sure that your /etc/apt/sources.list contains the debian-volatile repository (this makes sure you always get the newest updates for the ClamAV virus scanner – this project publishes releases very often, and sometimes old versions stop working).
to update the apt package database and
to install the latest updates (if there are any).
