Compile batch for XFCE

Hi,

Xfce 4.10
Distri Xubuntu 13.10

I am currently trying to compile parts of XFCE. As lazy as I am, I typed everything twice. One to see that it doesn't work, second time to have a batch. Maybe I should add the commands to install necessary packages...


#!/bin/bash
export XFCE_PATH="/home/slesa/work/xfce/deploy"

Re: Compile batch for XFCE

Looking forward to see you develop this script as it would sure make compilation easier. As an enhancement request, can you script in the ability to clone/pull and build plugins as well? They sit in a different directory ("plugins" instead of "xfce").

Re: Compile batch for XFCE

Oh, thank you for that hint. The reason why I'm writing that script is to see if I can change the IBus plugin - but did not find it yet ;-)

Re: Compile batch for XFCE

New version:
- installs all missing dependencies on the fly (as far as I know them)
- supports now apps and plugins

Re: Compile batch for XFCE

Update:
- added xfce-art
- added the possibility to not build modules

Packages marked with ## do not build on my system. So far, I found the following problems:
- xfce4-docs:
    cp xfhelp4.desktop.in xfhelp4.desktop
- apps/xfce4-taskmanager:
    doc/Makefile, install: line missing
- plugins/xfce4-indicator-plugin
    libxfce4panel2 not found
- plugins/xfce4-mailwatch-plugin
    libgcrypt conditional does not work
- plugins/xfce4-eyes-plugin
    ltmain.sh missing
    cp xfce4-indicator-plugin/ltmain.sh xfce4-eyes-plugin/
- plugin/xfce4-cpufreq-plugin
    mkdir xfce4-cpufreq-plugin/m4
- plugin/xfce4-taskbar-plugin
    no autogen.sh

...I think this package has been deprecated. There hasn't been any real activity for over 2 years and all Xfce documentation has been moved to the wiki. From within the apps, all(?) help links lead directly to the wiki.


- apps/xfce4-taskmanager:
    doc/Makefile, install: line missing

...Also doesn't seem to be much activity here for some time. I wonder if its been deprecated as well.


- plugins/xfce4-indicator-plugin
    libxfce4panel2 not found

...you need to build libxfce4util with the "--enable-gtk3" parameter to make it available. I believe this parameter also makes parole build.


- plugins/xfce4-mailwatch-plugin
    libgcrypt conditional does not work

...it's a warning that doesn't affect the build. Plugin builds and works fine.


- plugins/xfce4-eyes-plugin
    ltmain.sh missing
    cp xfce4-indicator-plugin/ltmain.sh xfce4-eyes-plugin/

...Yes, same here. Might be worth creating a bug report for.


- plugin/xfce4-cpufreq-plugin
    mkdir xfce4-cpufreq-plugin/m4

...maybe another bug report.


- plugin/xfce4-taskbar-plugin
    no autogen.sh

...README file has different build instructions.

Either it should be moved to archive, or the missing file should be added. But to have a package which does not compile is not really an option, is it?

Well, it is the taskmanager. May I can have a look at the open issues. Maybe start with the one-instance-only thing.

Good point. I am wondering wht gtk3 is not the default... And it is hard to get hints for such optional parameters...

No, it is an error. because of

configure.ac:93: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PATH_LIBGCRYPT

Bug report initiated.

Update: Bug fixed.

ToZ wrote:

Right now I only support autogen.sh. Thunar-desktop-plugin has the same problem. IMHO all XFCE modules should rely on the same behaviours.

Edit: Parole does not build because of dependencies I cannot resolve: libgstreamer-video.
