Welcome to the Xfce Portal edit

Xfce is a free and open source desktop environment which features a visually appealing and intuitive user interface designed for productivity.

The Xfce desktop environment consists of a number of components providing all functionality expected from a modern desktop environment, including a session manager, panel, application launcher, desktop manager, file manager, settings manager, and a window manager with compositing. Many components remain optional and/or may be exchanged for alternatives.

In addition to the core components the Xfce community provides numerous applications, utilities, and add-ons such as a terminal emulator, task manager, media player, panel plugins and file manager extensions.

The Xfce desktop is a well integrated and fully supported part of openSUSE. For more information about Xfce visit its website.
