rox filer isn't available pre-built for hppa.
"dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -us" died with:
checking that libgtk2.0-dev (version >= 2.0.1) is installed... no
configure: error: Package is not installed

while on my system "dpkg -l libgtk\*" says:

Latest source depot's are below in case someone wants to beat rox config

(one might try "stable/" instead of "developer/")

I was thinking xfce is a window manager but it's not:
    xfce is an easy-to-use and easy-to-configure toolbar for X11.  Features
    pulldown menus with color icons, 3D widgets,  etc.   It's  designed  to
    work with XFwm, (window manager shipped with xfce)

It works on fine on my B180...but I didn't try it with XFwm as reccomended.
fvwm was still running...I'll try it again with XFwm.
