Not sure where to post this, since the Newbies forum is gone. I’ve been testing xfce on my secondary system, and like it more than Gnome, which I’ve run on my primary computer for the past 9 months. I’ve read everything about switching desktops in the wiki, and ran across this thread, https://forum.manjaro.org/t/how-to-switch-from-gnome-to-xfce/23838 which describe a way to do this. I have a lot of time invested in configuring my primary system, and would like to do this in the least complicated way possible.
I keep reading that the safest way is to create a new user, but doesn’t that create the need to reinstall, reconfigure all apps I’ve installed, as well as somehow move, re-assign users and groups to the existing files?
Could use some guidance if anyone has gone through this. Thanks.
