Xfce (RC1) has been released, please commit ebuilds.

(Oh also it would be nice to add thunar plugins.. but that should be another bug report..)

proposed new eclass

The new ebuilds should point to so the existing eclass/xfce44.eclass needs to be updated.

Comment 7 Garrett Cooper 2006-10-24 06:57:22 UTC
As noted by the XFCE folks, the transition from 4.2 beta 1 to 4.2 RC 1 has included a variety of bug fixes and feature enhancements.

Please revise the eclass and add the ebuilds to the portage tree. Thanks!
Comment 8 crusaderky 2006-11-07 09:38:35 UTC
xfce 4.4 RC2 ( is out.
Comment 9 David Danier 2006-11-09 08:38:27 UTC
Please update the summary ;-)

I really don't understand why beta1/2 is inside the portage-tree and RC1/2 is not.
Perhaps putting both (beta and RC) into the XFCE-Overlay would be fine? Otherwise both should be available inside the official tree IMHO.

The only ugly thing with these ebuild currently is XFCE(_FOO)?_VERSION. Perhaps someone could think of a nicer way to do this?

XFCE 4.4 RC2 Ebuilds (tar.bz2)

Tar, like last time...many files ;-)

Included ebuilds (like RC1):
 * XFCE 4.4 RC2 (of course, including: thunar, xarchiver)
 * xfce4-dev-tools
 * xfmedia (SVN)
Comment 11 Piotr Chmura 2006-11-10 00:32:44 UTC
Thanks for your work on ebuilds.

They are working fine for me (amd64).
Comment 12 crusaderky 2006-11-13 07:43:44 UTC
From the RC1 changelog []

Session Manager (xfce4-session)

    * Add support for HAL to shutdown/reboot the computer. Must be enabled explicitly using --with-shutdown-style=hal to configure (Bug #2046). 

there is no "hal" USE flag in xfce4-session,though.

From the RC2 changelog []
Desktop Manager (xfdesktop)

    * Use d-bus bindings directly for all interaction with d-bus to avoid xfdesktop's UI freezing while waiting for responses. d-bus is now required at compile time for file icons

However, dbus is not listed among the requirements of xfdesktop.

From the thunar changelog []

Rubberband Selection

With the addition of rubberband selection to GtkTreeView in GTK+ 2.10 it is finally possible to use rubberband selection in the Detailed List View. 

I don't get it. Does it mean that thunar requires GTK+ 2.10,or that it takes advantage from it but it's not required, and/or that thunar needs to be recompiled to take advantage from a GTK+ upgrade?

This is just a bump, nothing, please don't expect them to be complete. If I have enough spare time I might fix this...

AFAIK GTK+ 2.10 is optional (GTK+ 2.8 here and thunar works). I don't know whether Thunar needs to be recompiled.

thunar ebuild

thunar doesn't require gtk-doc to run correctly. also orbit is a dependency only required when using the gnome-thumbnailer.

xfce4-panel ebuild

XFCE4-panel doesn't need gtk-doc either.
Comment 16 Olliver Schinagl 2006-11-15 17:31:18 UTC
Created attachment 102040 [details]

libxfcegui4 doesn't require gtk-doc.

Didn't check the xfce-extra stuff for gtk-doc depandancies, but didn't show up in my emerge -avuDN xfce4.

also, I had to unmask them all, so i'll paste my package.unmask for whoever wants a quick and dirty way to paste this into their packages.unmask.

Comment 17 David Girault 2006-11-21 02:13:58 UTC
Simple line to create all digest in portage overlay (/usr/local/portage) after untaring and downloading new ebuild version (thunar, xfce-panel, libxfcegui4):
# cd /usr/local/portage
# tar tjf xfce-4.4_rc2.tar.bz2 |grep ebuild |xargs -I{} ebuild {} digest

Just my two cents,
Comment 18 Josh Nichols (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-12-05 09:18:03 UTC
RC2 is in the tree now, give it a few hours to hit your local rsync mirror.

Node and Guido Imperiale,
I'd like to look at your suggested changes. Could you please file separate bugs for them? Thanks.
