    • Maybe I ought to try Xfce again. It's been a while. Likewise MX18, also suggested in this thread.   Clutter
    • I found Cinnamon a little over the top. Immediately took a dislike to 'mouse gestures' or whatever nonsense. I guess they were trying to create a more smart phone screen environment. Anyway, Betty and I both disliked Cinnamon so I settled on Mate. Clunky, kind of minimal, but less so than Xfce from what I remember of that one. I've been using Mate for some years now...
    • Well, with Xfce, you just RIGHT click on a blank panel spot and choose Panel > Preferences > Item tab... then create your new launcher. Easy-peasy.   I don't know diddly about Cinnamon or Mate these days.
