Can't help there. ;)

Well, Xfce just launches xscreensaver for you, that must be the

Yeah, the default panel has 'mousepad' as the editor, 'Terminal' as
the terminal program, 'Thunar' as the file manager program, and
for web it will launch exo-open to ask for your pref for webbrowser.

Unfortunately, exo only has preffered applications for web browser and
terminal. I guess I can change the Terminal launcher...
The other applications are not installed by default. ;(

The Xfce terminal program is called (the very generic) Terminal. :)
It's very nice. Has pretty much all the features of gnome-terminal and
konsole with less memory footprint. ;)

You can right click on any of those panel launchers, select
'Properties' and it will let you set them to anything you like.

Arthur> Will let you know if anything else comes up.

Excellent. Thanks for the testing... I really appreciate it.

Arthur> Peace.
Arthur> Thanks for the good work.

Thanks for the testing,
