Migration to xubuntu

Recently I moved from kde to xfce on my laptop, but as xfce doesn't look pretty in gentoo (actually, it looks awful), I decided to move to xubuntu :) System is pretty fast now (much faster than it was in kde). Here's gtk analogs of kde apps I was used to:
  • claws-mail (instead of kmail)
  • exaile (instead of amarok)
  • tilda (instead of yakuake)
I've created ppa with some custom packages:
  • tilda with changed shortcuts for switching tabs, default ctrl+pgup/ctrl+pgdn are used in mc and vim, so I changed them to shift+arrow, however it would be better to add option in gui for changing these shortcuts
  • swt-gtk-3.5.2, it's required to fix rendering issues in tuxguitar
Btw, there's arm toolchain in ubuntu repository :) xubuntu rocks!
