xfce4-power-manager updated to 1.4.1

Xfce4-power-manager has now been updated to the latest version on my xfce411 COPR repo.One nice thing about this update for me is that it seems to fix the lid closing actions!

If anyone is still running Xfce 4.11 on F21/Rawhide, please let me know if there are problems. I am planning to update F21 and rawhide packages on koji over the weekend unless I get some "emergency stop" bug reports! :)

Xfce packages for EPEL 7 - Updated

I have built more of the Xfce packages for eventual inclusion in EPEL. For now these reside in the COPR repo - xfce410_epel7_2

Here is the list of package that have now been included (from my last post) -

xfce4-sensors-plugin xfce4-timer-plugin      xfce4-modemlights-plugin xfce4-radio-plugin      xfce4-xfswitch-plugin   xfce4-xkb-plugin      xfce4-wavelan-plugin    xfce4-cpufreq-plugin    xfce4-verve-plugin      xfce4-time-out-plugin   xfce4-eyes-plugin      xfce4-netload-plugin    xfce4-genmon-plugin      xfce4-fsguard-plugin    xfce4-systemload-plugin xfce4-quicklauncher-plug xfce4-smartbookmark-plug xfce4-places-plugin      orage xfce4-diskperf-plugin   xfce4-weather-plugin xfce4-cpugraph-plugin xfce4-cellmodem-plugin
A few more (I think five) more packages remain to be builtnot including Thunar plugins. These will be updated (either here or directly in EPEL).

Please test these packages and let me kno…

Second Xfce 4.10 "plugins" COPR repo for Enterprise Linux 7

I have setup a COPR repository for Xfce 4.10 plugins that can be installed with EL-7. The original Xfce 4.10 repo for EL - 7 (xfce410_epel7) contains the core xfce packages. The new repo contains only plugins. I  made a second repo just for organizational sake.

I will start building these on koji in the near future. But, for now, I would appreciate any testing I can get on these packages.

Here is the COPR link -

At present, these are the packages present -

xfce4-mount-plugin xfce4-clipman-plugin xfce4-datetime-plugin xfce4-mailwatch-plugin xfce4-battery-plugin xfce4-notifyd xfce4-notes-plugin xfce4-mixer xfce4-power-manager xfce4-taskmanager libxfcegui4 xfce4-dict xfce4-screenshooter xfce4-terminal
I expect to populate this repository with many more packages the coming week and weekend. Again, I would appreciate any testing of these packages!

Updates to my Xfce 4.11 COPR repository

Three packages have been updated in my Xfce 4.11 COPR repo. I am running Fedora 21 at present and presently do not have a Fedora 20 machine (VM). So, I have not tested these packages on Fedora 20. If you encounter any bugs, please comment or better still send me an email and I will try to get back in touch as early as possible.

The packages that have been updated (with the versions updated to) are

   xfce4-power-manager         1.4.0    xfce4-settings             4.11.3    xfdesktop                  4.11.8
As always, please do not report this to bugzilla. Xfce 4.11 packages are not official yet.
