I am really not a big fan of the big massive GNOME desktop or KDE which has every bell and whistle anyone could want. I am happy, very happy with a very lean and simple interface like LXDE. Even ye old TWM would work but that is perhaps a tad too lean and entirely too mean. I went looking for lxde and see not much :
# yum search lxde Loaded plugins: langpacks, product-id, search-disabled-repos, subscription-manager ======================================================== N/S matched: lxde ========================================================= lxmenu-data.noarch : Data files for the LXDE menu Name and summary matches only, use "search all" for everything. #
So not sure what to make of that.
I think building from source may be a bit of a long haul : https://wiki.lxde.org/en/Installation
Any thoughts ?
------------- update -------------
I found the sad news here :
Does Red Hat support the XFCE Desktop Environment on Red Hat Enterprise Linux?
Solution Verified - Updated April 8 2017 at 2:39 AM - English
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4/5/6/7 XFCE Desktop Environment
so Computer says "no". :-(
I have to look at a total build of my own into $HOME somehow.
