Installing mate applets into xfce

Postby ac0ax on Wed Nov 14, 2012 10:16 pm

I've checked the forums but can't find any information on how to install mate applets in xfce. What I really want to do is install the weather applet from mate into xfce.

Why??

Xfce has a weather applet (not in mint default) but can get from repos/software manager/synaptic.

but even tho can use 'xfapplet (reconfigured for mate now I believe) :?:

P.S. not sure if 'Xfce weather applet works with 4.10 PPA tho (Mint 13-Xfce) but does on LMDE-Xfce and Mint14RC (xfce installed thru Repo)
