Getting back into the groove after vacation

To those who have been filing bugs against packages I maintain and have not seen a response - I have been in the middle of moving (>1000 miles) for the last few days and setting up.

With the dust settling now, I will back to take care of issues slowly.

Xfce 4.12 packages for Fedora 22

Beta freeze is upon us for Fedora 22 (tomorrow). For those already running Fedora 22, take some time to test Xfce 4.12 on Fedora 22 and report any bugs that you encounter. 

Hopefully, we can solve all issues before F22 final release ..

Happy testing!

xfdashboard behavior in Fedora 22

Since Fedora 22 has clutter-1.21, xfdashboard does not launch as before. A small workaround is needed to launch xfdashboard in Fedora 22 [1].

Here it is,

$ CLUTTER_BACKEND=x11 xfdashboard

This has already been reported and the workaround is from upstream report.

Xfce 4.12 COPR availbale for Fedora 20 and 21

A COPR repo for Xfce 4.12 is now ready for Fedora 21 and 20. The link to the COPR repo is

If you are one of those using dnf on Fedora 21, the repo can be enabled using

dnf copr enable nonamedotc/xfce412

Alternatively, visit the link above and download the .repo file and add it to /etc/yum.repos.d.

New package: xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin is a new panel plugin that is available in this repo.


  •  If you have my xfce411 COPR repo enabled, disable it. That repo will go away very soon. 
  •  xfce4-mixer in xfce411 COPR repo is version 4.11 whereas one in xfce412 repo is xfce4-mixer-4.10.x. This might need uninstalling the 4.11 version followed by installing the older version from 412 repo.

Please report all bug reports related to packages in this COPR repo directly to me. Please do NOT bugzilla for these packages.

Alternatively, use Fedoraforums (this link) -

Enjoy testing!
