Xubuntu Testing and QA

In recent months I have had a couple of people mail me regarding how to 
get more involved with Xubuntu and testing.

So here are some general links for people newer to the list(s) on how to 
go about that.

General contributions to Xubuntu are dealt with at 

The general wiki page for testing in the Ubuntu family, giving details 
is at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/Roles/Tester

More specifically for the Xubuntu testing side, this page give more 
detail http://xubuntu.org/contribute/qa/

If you decide that you want to do more regular testing it helps us if 
people can add themselves to 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/Testing/TeamHardware with what they can 
test with.

[15.04 64Bit 04/17]-VMWare Player 7.1.0 For Linux Not Working?


I downloaded Xubuntu 15.04 64Bit daily ISO image for Friday, April 17th.
I then updated Xubuntu O.S. and installed proprietary nVidia display driver.

I then downloaded VMWare Player 7.1.0 for Linux and installed it 
When I run VMWare Player it tries to set up, but fails?
(it runs 100% fine on 14.10, but not 15.04?)

How do I run VMWare Player 7.1.0 for Linux on my new Xubuntu 15.04 64Bit?

System is as follows:
- Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 motherboard
- AMD FX 3.5GHz 8 core CPU
- nVidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB GDDR5 PCIexpress graphics adapter

I am a software developer who needs to run different versions of Windows 
under my Linux.
Thanks, and nice operating system...

Desktop Icons rearranged

Dear All,

whenever a Xubuntu Update is installed, my desktop icons are rearranged.
I've copied my home directory from another distribution I used before.

Other users seem to have the same problem. There's a topic at
ubuntuusers.de forum (German):


Does anyone happen to have a solution?

What does Qt have to do with Xfce? (Or is the Qt/Gtk+ GUI style synching
just something you like in general?)

Xfce v 4.12

I have seen a lot recently about the new version of xfce, 4.12. This
has some very good comments, and it is apparently highly recommended to

I am using Xubuntu 14.04, which is the latest LTS version. This is
currently using v 4.10. I see that there are some PPA's available to do
the upgrade, but I am a bit wary of them at the moment.

So I am wondering what happens now. Will the new version become
available in the repositories? Will a future software upgrade soon
include this new version automatically? Are there any possible problems
to watch out for?

Any help gratefully received,

[15.04 64Bit 04/09]-Very Slow Boot Time?


I installed a 04/08 daily of Xubuntu 15.04 64Bit and updated to today.
Xubuntu runs great, but my desktops boot time is very long (2 minutes+).
I this a known issue which will be fixed in next week's release candidate?

If I press [F2] when the O.S. is stuck in booting I see 2 revolving 
messages with a 1:30 timer?
The timer reaches 1:30 minutes and the booting continues to a desktop.
I've tried Kubuntu 15.04 64Bit too on this same desktop and get the same 
slow booting with same messages.
