    Cool Re: Xfce 4.4.2 Out

    I installed Xfce 4.4.2 from source because there is no x86-64 binary .deb package(s) available.
    How to deinstall 4.4.2 when i installed it with Xfce installer
    and Not .deb package manager(apt,synaptic)?

    I now have 2 Xfce items listed in gdm menu,as environments to choose. Whatever I choose, I get 4.4.2 Now.
    Also beside that, I cant change keyboard layouts
    (option for layout is missing from settings)
    I am also unable to use hibernate/suspend/switch user options.
    Also Thunar plugins previously installed does Not work
    anymore! (Like archiver plugin to make archives..)

    Also, the bug with blocking Thunar in an endless loop, remains again in 0.9 Version, making Thunar as file manager
    quite useless, unless you consider great practice to use
    only One open window of default environment file manager.


    Right now, I would be quite happy to make my keyboard layouts work in present xfce 4.4.2
    and to find solutions for missing suspend/resume/user
    switch , thunar crashing and archiver plugin problems
    for a later time.

    The thing with the panel not allowing you to move applets freely have been there since xfce 4.3b1 (or the alphas even IIRC).
    "Some people says that if you run a Microsoft Midori iso backwards you will hear demon voices commanding you to worship Satan". But that's nothing. If you run it forward it will install Microsoft Midori.

    Did that to me, especially when dragging windows with transparency. So I turned it off and went to good ol' Compiz Fusion, which has caused no troubles.

    Thanks for the package. I just installed it. Could you, for the other users, make a list on what package you have to install first before you install the other? I had some trial and error before I got the right order (missing dependencies, broken cache). Now I'm off to reboot and see if it changed much. I also updated my video driver, so I'm even more curious as to what will happen.

    Xfce is excellent.
    Fast, good looking, understandable and easy to configure.
    It's the most full featured DE that can run on an old PII with 192MB of RAM that I have lying around.

    I haven't tried tihs yet, but does this have all the latest supporting apps as well? (Thunar, mousepad) also anyone know how to use apt-build with this to compile for my system?

    There is no need to put the changelog in <code>. All that does it make it hard to read.

    Re: Xfce 4.4.2 Out

    Just installed it.
    After reboot, synaptic showed up broken packages:
    libexo-0.3-dev
    libthunar-vfs-1-dev
    libxfce4mcs-dev
    libxfce4util-dev
    libxfcegui4-dev
    python-exo-dbg
    xfce4-mcs-manager-dev
    xfce4-panel-dev

    synaptic just removed them.
    They are -dev packages so i hope i wont need them :-S
    And if you do not know what package install first:
    - uncompress all the debs in a single folder
    - open Terminal
    - enter the folder using 'cd' command
    - install everything: sudo dpkg -i *.deb

    Or maybe i got broken packages for using -i *.deb??

    Re: Xfce 4.4.2 Out

    In my case, it got compiled after several tries, but would not run. After choosing XFCE at login, the screen would turn black showing a message 'This session lasted less then 10 seconds' and then some missing directories or files. Much as I like XFCE, I had no desire to troubleshoot yet again, and so uninstalled the whole thing.
