I've recently installed Xubuntu on a couple of my computers, and generally I prefer it over stock Ubuntu. I had almost forgotten how nice having launchers on the desktop was. Almost. One feature I missed from Ubuntu, though, was being able to switch between different logged in users. With the default Xubuntu setup, you have to log out before you can log into a different account. Problem solved.
$ sudo apt-get install xfswitch-plugin
- Add User Switching plugin to one of your panels.
