because I packaged Xfce in the past for SUSE Linux, I write this
announcement. The bad news is that I don't maintain the packages in
Packman or turing.fh-landshut.de any more.
The good news is that current beta packages and the final Xfce version
if it's ready can be downloaded from the SUSE Linux Build Service at
>> http://software.opensuse.org/download/X11:/xfce/ <<
Following distrubtions are available:
* SUSE Linux 10.1
* SUSE Linux 10.0
* SUSE Factory (the development snapshot)
The packages are available for
PPC and PPC64 may come in future.
If you use the smart package manager, you can add the repository using
$ smart channel --add http://software.opensuse.org/download/X11:/xfce/SUSE_Linux_10.1/X11:xfce.repo
if you use SUSE Linux 10.1 and similar for other distributions. YaST2
can also be used to install the packages.
The core packages are made by Pavel Nemec <pnemec at suse.cz> who also
packages Xfce for the SUSE distribution (the "box"). Some minor
packages like panel plugins are packaged by me <bernhard.walle at gmx.de>.
If you encounter any problems, please write to Pavel or to me.
If you would like to see another Xfce-related package, please also
write to me or Pavel. If you're familar to RPM package you can also
build the packages yourself at the Build Service, see
Subscribe the opensuse-buildservice at opensuse.org mailing list or join
the #opensuse-buildservice IRC channel in irc.freenode.net.
The SUSE Build Service is not restricted to SUSE, it's also possible
to build packages for following distributions
* Mandriva 2006
* Fedora Core 5
* Fedora Core 4
* Debian Etch
* xUbuntu 6.06
* SLE 10 and SLES 9 (well, that is SUSE as well :))
There's only the requirement that someone maintains the .spec files
for that distributions or the debian/ subdirectory. If you have any
questions about this, again, use the IRC channel or the mailing list.
BTW: Xfce 4.4 is very nice. :)
