Yes, of course. Xubuntu is an official Ubuntu flavour, that comes with
Xfce - https://xubuntu.org

Read more about the flavours here: https://www.ubuntu.com/download/flavours

Thank you!  Does the "X" stand for "X11" or "Xfce"?

Is this a "live" iso?  Or just an installer?  (I won't know
for another hour or so.)

Starts as a live ISO, with the option of doing a permanent
install.

Hi,

I'm using the Xubuntu 18.10 live DVD myself, to backup my Ubuntu 16.10,
Arch Linux and all my data.

A while back I wrote a script that downloads Ubuntu desktop flavour ISO,
the public Ubuntu keys and finally checks the downloaded ISO against a
signed checksum.

To use this script for downloading Xubuntu 18.10 you should have at
least a little bit more than 1.4 G available space in /tmp.

   df -h | grep /tmp | awk {'print $4'}

shows the available space.

Save the attached script.

Open a terminal and change the directory to the location where you saved
the script, for example

   cd Desktop/

Make the script executable by running

   chmod a+x luamd64_1610.sh

Run the script

   ./luamd64_1610.sh xubuntu 18.10

you get this:

   Usage: ./luamd64_1610.sh [FLAVOUR [RELEASE]]
   'luamd64' gets the 'l'atest 'u'buntu desktop flavour 'amd64' iso for you.

     The default flavour is ubuntu-mate.
     The default release is 16.10.

   Other desktop flavours available for at least 16.10

     ubuntu
     kubuntu
     lubuntu
     ubuntu-gnome
     ubuntukylin
     ubuntustudio
     xubuntu

   Root can't run this script.


   mkdir /tmp/xubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64-20190413-083757


   Press a key to continue
   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Follow the advices ^^^^^^^

The list of available Ubuntu desktop flavours is outdated. I don't
maintain this script. However, it still works, at least for
Xubuntu 18.10 and some other, too.

After that you still need to press 5 times a key, until you get to

   The following validation might take a while
   sha256sum -c SHA256SUMS 2>&1 | grep OK    

   Press a key to finish

The output should be

   xubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64.iso: OK

if you get

   xubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64.iso: Validation failed

the ISO is corrupted.

The ISO is located in /tmp/xubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64-*-*.

   ls -hAl /tmp/xubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64-*-*
   total 1.5G
   -rw-r--r-- 1 rocketmouse rocketmouse  195 Oct 18 13:12 SHA256SUMS
   -rw-r--r-- 1 rocketmouse rocketmouse  916 Oct 18 13:12 SHA256SUMS.gpg
   -rw-r--r-- 1 rocketmouse rocketmouse 1.5G Oct 18 01:08 xubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64.iso

Regards,
Ralf

No, Xubuntu has XFCE4 as its built-in desktop environment.  You don't
have to install it separately.

And yes, the ISO is live and an install setup.

Oh you know what.  The desktop it brings up so weird
that I did not recognize it as Xfce.

I eventually went into Panel, Backup and Restore and restored
classic 4.12.  Then I got rid of that UGLY background picture,
and happy camping returned.
