I want to discuss some things on the list prior opening a bug report -
because it might be not needed.
I've prepared the FreeBSD ports for 4.6 Beta 2 and upgraded my system to
test it. I've created a new user to ensure no 4.4 configuration is harming
the tests as a first step.
I've noticed the following things where I would like to hear your opinion
- Editor, Command Line and so on in the panels are showing no icon (a
- within "Applications" in the context menu which gets openend when right
clicking on the desktop, the Subgroups (like Settings, Graphics,
Multimedia...) are shown with a read X-Icon instead of a real. Within
the Settings-Group, many Setting Applications are shown with no icon (a
- on startup, xfce told me that the Xfce Trash service could not be
contacted (or something like that) - but I've Thunar installed.
- reboot and/or shutdown does not work, instead of the expected result,
xfce4 is just closing and prior to finishing the closing, an empty
messaging box is shown w/o a windowmanager frame, showing a red
stop-sign with no text and just an OK button.
I've the following line in my sudoerrs:
%wheel ALL = NOPASSWD:/usr/local/libexec/xfsm-shutdown-helper
When I try to start it I'm getting:
olivleh1 at kartoffel olivleh1> sudo /usr/local/libexec/xfsm-shutdown-helper
When I then press enter, I get a FAILED
When I run 4.6 with my existing 4.4 configuration:
- I had to lower the fontsize through all applications by 1 to get the
old font sizes back. I noticed the following output on the console:
xrdb: "Xft.hinting" on line 9 overrides entry on line 6
xrdb: "Xft.hintstyle" on line 11 overrides entry on line 7
where does this come from? my .config/xfce4/Xft.xrdb is only 4 lines
- this message sounds funny?
