For those running LMDE-XFCE and have upgraded to XFCE 4.10
I've continued upgrading 4.10 from where I left off here. http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... =0#p621516
Only issue I had was that some of the panel plugins I used regularly were not available.
Searching the internet I found this on the CrunchBang Forums http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic ... d-plugins/
Starting at #6 are instructions for downloading xfce 4.10 panel plugins from source and compiling.
Download souce code tarballs from here. http://archive.xfce.org/src
I did the 'weather plugin' (its a new more inclusive one...real nice).
Basically to compile the download tarball.
1. Downlad the tarball
2. Unzip it to your home folder.
3. Open the folder, right click on the sub folder inside. (then select open terminal here
That should put you in somthing like (your name and computer, of course)...
Code: Select all
It will not complete. You will be prompted that some packages are misssing.
Seach for the package and install it.
Sometimes is just the .dev
version of that file.
Sometimes not, and you can't find them....
Then, copy the name of the missing package and "google
it". You will get several hits from other folks with the same problem. In those posts you will find the correct packge name to get from synaptic.
You will have to do this 4 or 5 times.
A little tedious, but interesting....
5. After that sucessfully completes..
With luck and a little effort you will have a nice new weather plugin.....
