xfdashboard - 0.1.4

xfdashboard provides a GNOME shell dashboard like interface for use with Xfce desktop. It can be configured to run to any keyboard shortcut and when executed provides an overview of applications currently open enabling the user to switch between different applications. The search feature works like Xfce's app finder which makes it convenient to search for and start applications.

The latest version of the xfdashboard will be available in updates-testing repository for Fedora 19 and Fedora 20 soon. The packages are building in koji and will be submitted for testing soon.

The new version (0.1.4) includes support for themes. From the git changelog,

New feature: Add support for theming with CSS. A default theme called 'xfdashboard' will be installed and is a CSS version of the previously hard-coded style. You can now develop and tweak the appearance you like.

More information about xfdashboard can be found from the http://xfdashboard.froevel.de/ (developer's site)

Documentation for theming is here - http://xfdashboard.froevel.de/theming.html


  1. Is it possible to configure xfdashboard to start when pushing the mouse to a screen edge?

    1. At this point, I don't think so. I will see what the author thinks.

  2. Hi nonamedotc, thank for all you packages.
    Do you think that it will be possible to see https://github.com/cedl38/xfwm4-titleless and https://github.com/cedl38/xfce4-windowck-plugin any time soon?
    I would like to help, but I am not skill enought unfortunately

  3. This would be great! Those plugins work really well if you want to save screen space and they are nice if you want to replicate the GNOME-Shell experience with xfdashboard.
    Thank you again.
