    Re: Where is xfce4-taskbar-plugin?

    I can't get this plugin running. If I try to compile it, I get many errors, and if I try to use the binary package provided here, I get an error message when I add the plugin to the panel. Has anyone any idea how to fix this?

    Re: Where is xfce4-taskbar-plugin?

    Are you running Xubuntu 12.10 64 bit? I doubt the compiled plugin will work in other environments and architectures.

    It's also a good idea to share the error message. Don't hold any information back

    Re: Where is xfce4-taskbar-plugin?

    I tried the binary package on Xubuntu 11.10, 12.10 and Debian wheezy (all 64 bit). There is no useful error message, there is only a popup that tells that the taskbar plugin has been restarted several times and asks if I want to retry or remove the plugin. Clicking on retry doesn't help.

    Even though you dealing with issues with xfce4-taskbar, I think it would be advisable for you to start a new thread since this one is already marked as SOLVED and because of that you'll probably won't get as much help as you would expect.

    Just one last note, please post the output of:
    Code:
    uname -a
    at the new thread. The reason why is because the solution in this thread has been compiled on xubuntu 12.10 for AMD64 and we need to know what's your system and hardware specs.
    One last thing, in your first block of code you have several reports of missing packages. Confirm you have them by running:
    Code:
    dpkg --get-selections | grep name_of_package
    If you don't have them, you have to install them prior to installing xfce4-taskbar.plugin.
    Please mark your thread as solved if you get a satisfactory response.
