LM17 XFCE: Post-install First Steps
- Wi-Fi setup
Settings > Network Connections
Add > Wi-Fi > Create
Add all the info for the network connection.
- Login Window theme
System > Login Window
I like a GDM one called "Linux Mint" (doh!)...
It is really important that you make sure to de-select, under the Options tab, "Automatically select the last logged in user".
- Remove stuff
- Refresh available updates, and then install them.
- Reboot the lappie.
- Install all the updates available thru apt-get dist-upgrade.
- Reboot once again.
- Set an even locale throughout the desktop...
Settings > Languages > Apply System-Wide
- Panel customization
And now is where the real customization begins...

Things seem to be going pretty well with the XFCE release of LM17, and specially since getting the Emacs key bindings is a piece of cake, besides, XFCE flies on the old lappie.
