    Since Ubuntu upgraded to 12.10 is the xfce 4.8 environment going to update on Ubuntu 12.04 or do I have to install xfce 4.10 manually.

    I am using xfce 4.8 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS .

    You can install XFCE 4.10 on Xububtu 12.04 LTS from ppa.


    https://launchpad.net/~xubuntu-dev/ archive/xfce-4.10

    It can be backported to the LTS version. Or you can upgrade to Xubuntu 12.10, which officially supports it.

    to be honest mixing desktop environment always mess specialy with unity if you dont want unity thats diffrent thing i suggest stick with what ever work best with your system

    LXDE is not as fast or better as xubuntu also its made for low end system with less ram you should try lubuntu 1st and see if you like maybe then.

    here i uninstall xubuntu and cinnamon still my unity is messy now i am ending up reformating my system because of driver problem too so i suggest

    not to experiment on system :D

    if you want to go for new go for full distro upgrade or install xfce/lxde and try pure ones example xubuntu instead of ubuntu + xfce :rolleyes:

    I agree -- v4.10 isn't remarkably different/better

    Yes, for a new install I agree with this recommendation.
