Updating XFCE4

Postby JPClyde on Sat Jun 30, 2012 7:26 pm

Can someone help me?

I'm trying to update XFCE4.8 to 4.10 but software manager doesn't have 4.10, I can download the files from XFCE web site but my linux knowledge is very limited, so I don't know which files I need from their src directory and how to install them.

I know I could download the latest mint but I don't want to spend the time again setting up my laptop.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Which Linux Mint version are you using? Linux Mint 13 Xfce comes with Xfce 4.10.

So, perhaps upgrade to 13 in two weeks or so when the final release is done? Probably if you search for a PPA on Ubuntu 11.10 you will find a PPA to install Xfce 4.10 on Ubuntu 11.10 (on which Linux Mint 12 is based, so you can use that).

I've tried that and I keep getting this error:

They've apparently stopped such support for Oneiric (11.10/Mint 12)
