I can partially answer your question, since I'm running Xfce both on my
workstation and my laptop.

Here's my custom script that installs a full-blow bells-and-whistles
Xfce desktop from a minimal CentOS installation, without any unnecessary


Once you've installed the "X Window System" group and you invoke "yum
groupinstall Xfce", the group consists of not much more than a dozen
explicit core packages (Thunar, xfdesktop, xfce4-panel, etc.) and then -
of course - all the dependencies are installed. Give this a spin on an
x86_64 machine and then write down this relatively short list.
