I want to install Xfce on my REHL 6.6 (currently I think it uses Gnome2 and Compiz) but yum grouplist does not provide me any kind of Xfce group after I run

# wget http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
# rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm

Is there an other way to install it beside of yum groupinstall xfce ?

  • Do you get the same result from yum grouplist after running yum clean all ? (Xfce shows in my grouplist on RHEL 6) – Liczyrzepa Jul 9 '15 at 18:20
  • I have a cooperate version with a reduced package list. That's why I don't have it by default – Michael Jul 9 '15 at 20:11

Based on the output of yum groupinfo Xfce (see below), you should be able to run:

yum install Thunar xfce-utils xfce4-panel xfce4-session xfce4-settings xfconf xfdesktop xfwm4 NetworkManager-gnome Terminal gdm leafpad openssh-askpass orage polkit-gnome thunar-archive-plugin thunar-volman tumbler xfce4-appfinder xfce4-icon-theme xfce4-mixer xfce4-power-manager xfce4-session-engines xfwm4-theme-nodoka xfwm4-themes
