It is possible (you have to TEMPORARILY add the Mint main repo), and install xfapplet, and mintmenu (It will add lots of Mate files), but be advised this is NOT recommended, as it may break something. Its your choice, but if you do wish to try make sure to back up first, as something may break. Remove the Mint main repo as soon as you are done.

According to this post: viewtopic.php?f=57&t=129651 xfce4-xfapplet-plugin should be installed, but it is not in the repositories from my sources list:
deb http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linux ... ian/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linux ... t/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linux ... multimedia testing main non-free
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import backport romeo
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian wheezy main contrib
Am I missing something?
So I have to get that xfce-xfapplet-plugin, and, following GeneC, I added the Siduction repo. (and got the same error as vbj.) and Linux Mint Main (Nadia) repo.
Then I looked at the xfce-xfapplet-plugin in Synaptic. It has a good number of dependances, but obviously not all of the XFCE 4.10 packages. Could I safely install _just_ that (I did nothing so far)? I'm in no hurry to do the full upgrade to XFCE 4.10, but OTTH, if it's safer...
TIA - regards, Daniel
I'm not experimental, and I do mind things breaking!GeneC wrote:At this time I would recommend NOT trying to install MintMenu in LMDE (unless you are quite experimental, and dont mind things breaking).
That's comforting. I thought that, since LMDE XFCE got no new ISO, it would not receive such updates, and I had to try something else. No problem, I'm patient, I can wait...Wait for xfapplet to come to LMDE.
... but will they go as far as updating all that?It needs xfce 4.10 apparently, and that is yet another hurdle.
Already done.If you did add Nadia and sidcution xfcenext repo, Be sure to disable (or delete them) after experimenting).

E.g., xfce4-xfapplet-plugin_0.1.0-4mint2_amd64.deb wants libxfce4util6 which can't be found in LMDE (there's only libxfce4util4).
Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 4.1.0), autotools-dev, cdbs, xfce4-panel-dev (>= 4.7.7), libmatecorba-dev, libmatepanelapplet-dev, libxfcegui4-dev
... perhaps, before going through your detailed steps, I'd better wait for MATE 1.6 to come to LMDE?Monsta wrote: this applet may become obsolete soon (when MATE will be updated to 1.6). It uses obsolete MATE libraries like libmatecorba (not present anymore in MATE 1.6).
