If i look in 'other', in the xfce 4 menu, i see all the modules from
yast 'naked'.(is this intended?)
There is however no way to get into yast, or root, to manage fi software.
Do i have to understand that this is not possible from xfce, or is there
some hidden way to go into root, and call the desired gui-module?

You should have yast2-mcs-plugin package installed if you selected Xfce
pattern. This adds icon to Xfce Settings manager (called Yast2 Control

There is no icon there..
I will restart KDE to look into Yast if the pkg is installed or not...

About 'naked' modules in Other menu: all
/usr/share/applications/YaST2/*desktop files should probably have
"OnlyShowIn=KDE;GNOME;" like /usr/share/applications/YaST.desktop does.

This i do not understand.
The modules are accessible, one gets a warning that these modules only
'realy' work when having 'root'-privileges, and that is correct, as i
experienced...(instead of this warning, a root-password requester should
be offered, i would presume..?)
