After upgrading to Xfce 4.10 from 4.8, I noticed that the clock/notification area no longer pushed to the right edge of the panel.
This is due to a change in the Window Buttons panel plugin which no longer expands to fill the available space.
To emulate the old behavior, add a transparent separator between the window buttons and the clock/notification area, setting its expand property.
It’s a bit unintuitive to set non-persistent session on FreeNX server. After a few attempts, here is the working settings:
I keep forgetting how to run Desktop Shell Scripting Console. So here it is just to remind myself:

In insert mode, backpace doesn’t delete characters as intended. To fix it add this to .vimrc:
# pkg_version -v
Running pkg_version -v could take a while. If we only want a quick look:
# pkg_info -xI
If we want to see if some packages are out of date:
# pkg_version -v -X -s
And to check all out of date packages:
# pkg_version -vL "="
Well, I need FreebSD 9 source to compile
fusefs-kmod, which is required by

A lot of people recommend to use sysinstall to add the so called userland sources.
sysinstall -> Configure -> Distribution -> src
However, it didn’t work!!
Thanks to wblock@ who pointed out that “sysinstall is mostly dead” and suggested a few ways to get the sources to your system. One of them is:
Download the tar file that matches the version you installed. In my case it’s amd64:
# wget ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/amd64/9.0-RELEASE/src.txz
Unpack the archive to /usr/src:
# tar -C / -xvzf src.txz
1. Install the preferred cursor theme. I personally like dmz-cursor-theme.
# pkg_add -r cursor-dmz-theme
2. Then, Applications Menu -> Settings -> Mouse. Click on Theme tab, select the preferred theme and click Close.
3. Log out of the current Xfce session, then log back in.
