hey everyone. I'm giving the windows->linux migration another shot since the latest xubuntu livecd felt so amazingly polished. kudos on the great work.
on to my comment - I figured I would jump right in and just install the latest release candidate to see how things felt. I ran the binary installer and upon its checks for required items on the system it asks for vte version 0.11.11 or newer. This is on a brand new fresh install of the ubuntu desktop. oddly enough it couldn't fine `vte` anywhere, nor in any packages I searched through.
Eventually I just got the latest vte tarball and compiled it myself. XFCE had no issues after it found it there.
Just giving a heads up. Thanks
You need the development files to compile xfce4. I think the package is called "libvte-dev"
