replace enable=0 par enable=1
install al the rpm present un the repository
reboot the pc en select xfce enjoy

this week a create a group.xml so you can perform a install with groupinstall xfce
Thank you so much for this! Gnome 3 is pants. I've used KDE for my workstations with CentOS 7 as it's easy to make it work like Windows enough that people don't mind it. XFCE is at least as configurable, so this helps with that problem quite a bit! Already running it as my desktop :)

I'd still love for someone to port over the Fedora KDE packages, though!

At the risk of just saying 'me too' - I find gnome3 almost unusable. I am using Mate where gnome3 is the default offering.

For those preferring window environments, openbox now seems available for CentOS-8. For dwm fans, dwm can usually be built fairly easily

See my page http://srobb.net/dwm.html which has a link to much more detailed page, which, while for Debian, should be good.f
New users should check the FAQ and Read Me First pages
