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.

  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.

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 - 
python-QtPypython-QtAwesomepython-flitpython-entrypointspython-nbconvertpython-entrypointspython-pickleshare
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 -

Please email me if there are any theme requests and/or issues with these packages. Alternatively, leave comments on this page.
