I don't, I'm afraid. I use LXDE on my laptop, and have played with
Xfce, but only in single-head mode - when I attach an external monitor
as well, I find that only GNOME gives me the dual-screen setup options
that I need to get it working. Sadly, 11.10 breaks external-desktop
functionality altogether.
