Customizing Zenwalk Linux 6 Xfce Desktop

Make Exaile the default music player
The default audio CD player on Zenwalk 6 is Goobox, the native Xfce desktop music player. It’s a good music player, but not as good as Exaile (by the way, Exaile is already installed). So if you want the system to launch Exaile and start playing an audio CD whenever you insert one into the CD tray, here’s what you do. Click on Zenwalk Application Menu > Settings > Removable Drives and Media. Then click on the Multimedia tab. The window should look just like the one blow.

Under Audio CDs, replace the Command line that reads /usr/bin/goobox –play with /usr/bin/exaile –play-cd, so that it looks just like the one below.

That should do it. Now, the next time you insert an audio CD, the system will launch Exaile

Install Games
On a default installation of Zenwalk 6, you will not find any games. But there are lots of games in the repos that you can install via the same process you’d take to install any other application. Launch xnetpkg by clicking on Zenwalk Application Menu > Settings > Netpkg or Zenwalk Application Menu > System > Netpkg. Select the games you want to install. There are 2D and 3D games. If you like chess, gnuchess is a good one, and if you have 3D capable hardware, sauerbraten, and wesnoth are two good ones.
