Sure, Acer went through a lot of trouble to create a custom user interface for the Acer Aspire One computer, but I’m willing to bet that you’ll want to figure out how to circumvent it within a few minutes of unboxing the computer.
It turns out that underneath the custom interface, the Acer Aspire One is running the Xfce desktop environment. Members of the AspireOneUser forum have uncovered two different methods for enabling advanced features.
The first thing you need to do is open a terminal window by going to files -> my documents and then clicking the file menu and selecting terminal.
If you like the Acer interface, but want to add the ability to bring the Xfce system menu by right-clicking on the screen, these instructions can help. If you’d prefer to replace the Acer interface with a more generic Xfce interface, follow these steps.
