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!


  1. Thanks for getting to this! I ended up spending today trying to do this and running into other issues all day.

  2. Hi,
    A lot of packages was skiped as xfce4-power-manager and xfce4-settings in Fedora 20.. :(
    And others on fedora 21..

    1. Can you send me an email with the exact error message you get please?

  3. I needed to remove
    xfce4-xfswitch-plugin xfce4-smartbookmark-plugin xfce4-notes-plugin xfce4-timer-plugin xfce4-cellmodem-plugin

    1. Thanks for the feedback. I will look into this when I get a chance again.

  4. On my large 2560x1600 monitor I cannot move windows all the way down on the desktop. The title bar does not go below half the height .

    1. That's really strange ... Did you see this in xfce4.11 also?

      If you could email me more information, I can look into this and do the needful. Thanks,

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 -
