Hi Dani,

Did you use "apt-get build-dep xfce4-timer-plugin" as Baurzhan 
suggested?  I've tried the following commands in an Ubuntu 16.04 Docker 
container, and it built the plugin successfully:

# apt-get update
# apt-get install git
# apt-get build-dep xfce4-timer-plugin
# git clone
# cd xfce4-timer-plugin
# ./
# make

On Debian / Ubuntu, using "apt-get build-dep" is the best way to get 
everything needed to build a package.  But in the general case, if you 
are missing for a particular header (.h) file, you can can do a package 
search by filename on  It will tell you which 
package you need to install to get it.
