Re: Updated e16 Light-Weight Alternative for CentOS Altarch 7.6.1810 on i386

I belatedly realized that on my latest e16 desktop, the docking area or iconbox which normally appears at the bottom ...

Because there is no EPEL repository for CentOS 7 32-bit, a method for implementing XFCE on CentOS 7 32-bit is to use the 2-step process (rpm -ivh, rpmbuild -bb) to create the binary rpm's required for installatio...
