Xfce 4.11 (development version) repo

Xfce 4.11, the development release in the journey towards the next stable 4.12, was released recently. I have built some Xfce 4.11 components for Fedora 20 and rawhide in COPR. It is not complete yet - xfce4-session is missing for one. I have not seen any problems in my test virtual machines or on my laptop - but that's no assurance. For those who want to try, repository links are below. But first,

** Do not use bugzilla for reporting bugs for this COPR package **

Here is the link to my Xfce - 4.11 repo -

Although, page shows Fedora 19 repo, do NOT try these packages on Fedora 19.

Good luck! :)


  1. Look fine so far. Thanks for packaging.

  2. Thank you for giving much needed love to Xfce in fedora.

    Don't know whether you are individually maintaining this repo or not!

    Probably Mr. Kevin Fenzi (nirik), Mr. Christoph Wickert (cwickert) and some others will be much helpful to you in this matter.

    1. It was with kevin's blessings that I set up this repo.

  3. Thanks for your work, Xfce it's a really important alternative for Fedora.

  4. Hello,

    I sent you an e-mail, I tried Xfce 4.11 on Fedora 20 64-bit,
    and sleep/hibernate became not active. Have you observed this?\


    1. Hi! I have seen that in Rawhide. But, if you choose suspend from the power manager icon on the notification, suspend works fine. I have not had a chance to look in to yet in detail.

      Thanks for letting me know about this issue though. I will look at it.

gparted 0.28.1

A new version of gparted was released recently and I have updated the Fedora package to the latest version - 0.28.1.

This version brings a rather exciting (at least, to me) update - ability to copy and resize already open LUKS filesystems.

For full details, see gparted release notes of both 0.28.0 and 0.28.1

0.28.0 - release notes (0.28.0)

0.28.1 - release notes (0.28.1)

This update is, at the moment, only pushed for Fedora 25. I will test this and submit an update for EPEL-7 in the next few days.

spyder 3 for Fedora

Spyder 3 was released sometime back and the latest version 3.1.0 was released yesterday. I have working on updating Spyder to 3.x for sometime now. Towards this effort, I got the following packages reviewed and included in Fedora - 
In addition to this, the package python-ipykernel had to be reviewed. This was completed sometime towards the end of last year.
Now that all the packages are available (in different forms), I have put together a COPR repo where spyder 3.1.0 package resides. I would like to get these packages tested before I submit it as a big update to Fedora 25.
COPR repo is here - nonamedotc/spyder3 - COPR repo
Of course, this repo can be directly enabled from a terminal -
dnf copr enable nonamedotc/spyder3
To install spyder along with ipython console from this repo, do

dnf install python{2,3}-{spyder,ipython}

Note: ipython package provided by this repo is version 5.…

Beautiful themes for Fedora

Ever since Fedora 24 was released, I have been looking at new themes for use with Xfce that are not completely broken with GTK 3.20. I have tried several themes and since several of them had to be compiled (not copy/paste to ~/.themes), I have packaged those I have tried so far.
Here are the links to koji builds -
