Description Congtat Cia 2008-11-01 04:25:34 UTC
After updating to xfce4-mixer 4.4.3, the panel plugin disappeared and failed to present in the panel plugin list. A wrong path in /usr/share/xfce4/panel-plugins/xfce4-mixer.desktop has been described to cause the problem. Please see . A manual correction fix it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Update to xfce-extra/xfce4-mixer-4.4.3

I have this bug also, but Arch's bugzilla seems to be down. The fix was obvious though: last line shouldn't include local in the path.
Comment 2 Christoph Mende (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-06 13:24:37 UTC
I have no idea what you guys are talking about. Neither after a fresh install nor after an upgrade there's "local" in the desktop file here and xfce4-mixer just works
Comment 3 trefoil 2008-11-06 20:23:50 UTC
You may have to restart X to trigger the bug. I just re-emerged xfce4-mixer-4.4.3. The last line of /usr/share/xfce4/panel-plugins/xfce4-mixer.desktop reads:


When trying to add a plugin to the panel, the mixer plugin won't appear, unless you remove local from the line in the file above.
Comment 4 Christoph Mende (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-06 20:31:40 UTC
well, I did check that file after every emerge and this is my output:

That's really odd! Could this be an autotools issue? I'll add eautoreconf to the ebuild and try again.
Comment 7 trefoil 2008-11-06 20:43:11 UTC
Nevermind. I'm out of ideas. Suggest a sed in the ebuild to remove local if and when it appears in that file. -_-
Comment 8 Christoph Mende (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-06 21:04:40 UTC
Well, it looks like this: there's panel-plugin/xfce4-mixer.desktop which has "local" in its path, then there's panel-plugin/ with @EXTERNAL_PLUGIN_PATH@ where /usr/local is in the other. @EXTERNAL_PLUGIN_PATH@ is replaced with $(libexecdir)/xfce4/panel-plugins. $(libexecdir) is replaced with /usr (econf passes --prefix=/usr). The output is then written to panel-plugin/xfce4-mixer.desktop during make. My current guess is that this last step doesn't happer for you
Comment 9 Christoph Mende (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-06 21:19:21 UTC
I got one last thing for you to try before sedding the local out: Does it work if you remove /var/tmp/portage/xfce-extra/xfce4-mixer-4.4.3/work/xfce4-mixer-4.4.3/panel-plugin/xfce4-mixer.desktop right after it was unpacked (use ^Z to pause emerge)?
Comment 10 trefoil 2008-11-06 21:33:24 UTC
Aha. What you described matches what I just read here:

Perhaps removing in src_unpack the included panel-plugin/xfce4-mixer.desktop file is a better solution?
Comment 11 trefoil 2008-11-06 21:41:52 UTC
I missed your comment - seems we're saying the same thing. What you suggested does have the correct path (no more local), but the translations no longer appear in that file.
Comment 12 Christoph Mende (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-06 21:48:30 UTC
Committed that workaround, translation exist in the newly generated file here
