Thread: How to install xfce in Tumbleweed?

    Default How to install xfce in Tumbleweed?

    I didn't install xfce when I was installing Tumbleweed, but I would like to add it now. The problem I'm having is that when I try:

    Code:
    sudo zypper install xfce4
    I get back something to the effect that the system is unable to locate a provider of xfce4. I gather this could be because the package is under a name other than xfce4 or it could be because I need to add a repository.

    What is the proper way to install xfce4?

    Thanks very much!

    Put a checkmark in front of XFCE Desktop Environment.

    Thank you so much! It's so simple, but I never would have figured it out.

    It's probably easier if you use Yast Software Management for that kind of thing.
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;
