What do you recommend for building Xfce 4.6.1 from source, currently we are using CentOS v4.6 which is getting kinda old. We are running in a educational environment, so we are looking for stability! We are still running Xfce 22.214.171.124 in our labs. So this is big upgrade for us.
Here are the packages I am using to compile Xfce 4.6.1 against.
glib - 2.20.3
pango - 1.24.2
cairo - 1.8.6
glade - 3.6.5
pixman - 0.15.10
xrender - 0.8.3
On the roadmap on the wiki (http://wiki.xfce.org/releng/4.6/roadmap) I see a statement saying that Xfce 4.6 is going to depend on GTK 2.10. Does that mean I should build Xfce around GTK+ 2.10 ??
I asking because, I am running into a issue with printing from within Xfce. Eclipse and Firefox both die on printing. I know these issues are most likely related to my build environment.
/cs/local/packages/jdk/bin/java: symbol lookup error: /cs/local/packages/xfce-4.6.1/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/printbackends/libprintbackend-file.so: undefined symbol: g_dgettext
Firefox: Just disappers!
