Ristretto lightweight picture-viewer for the Xfce desktop environment and the Xfce Goodies Project.

The Xfce Goodies Project includes additional software and artwork that are related to the Xfce desktop, but not part of the official release.

The Xfce Project itself provides a lightweight desktop environment, which includes only the core compoments required for a desktop environment, like a window manager, a file manager, a session manager, a panel and a few utilities. Additional software packages and plugins to existing software, like the panel or the file manager, are provided by the Xfce Goodies Project.

Panel Plugins.

The xfce4-panel already comes with some plugins, like launchers, the taskbar or a menu plugin. The panel plugins does work the same way as the xfce4-panel-provided ones, allowing you to have more functionnalities. This goes from an enhanced version of the launchers, to one wich allow you to take control of your favorite media player, or showing you the weather for your city, ... and many more.

Thunar Plugins.

Just like the panel plugins, the thunar plugins are intented to add more functionnalities to the Thunar file manager. This can be extent the properties of the files (like allowing you to change their id3 tags) or add an integrated archive manager for example. :projects:thunar-media-tags-plugin.png

This area is used to show you some applications wich aren’t part of the core Xfce Desktop, but who does use his api and/or are written some that they fits well with him.
Note that most of them have their own web site. But the goodies projest is finally a good place to found them all, some you can start to look at them here.


Here you will find backgrounds wich are related to the Xfce Desktop. You will also find gtk2 themes, and also some icon themes made in order to work with xfce applications.
