<LAUGHING>, no, it'd crash due to overflow error too often - probably each time a person checked their spammail I mean email.

As always, ToZ, thanks for the thread, the updates in it, and everything else you do around here. You - and numerous others - have taught us a lot.

Because I'm interested in checking the app out, but it's not in my repos. I found that link, though, which has a version 1.46 but as IDK who wrote the official XFCE one, I'm not sure that they're one and the same.

Ah. I downloaded the .deb, ran it, and saw:
Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libglibmm-2.4.1c2a (>= 2.42.0)

Whoops. Synaptic Package Manager tells me I have version 2.39.93-0ubuntu1 installed, and no newer version shows as available. Looks like I'll be waiting a while. IDK if there's a place on the Mint forum to request newer versions or not.

Dumb-user syndrome strikes again, lol. Guess I'll continue to plod along with my separate CPU/memory/swap (System Load Monitor), download/upload (Network Monitor), Core0/Core1/HDD Temperature (Sensor Plugin), CPU frequency monitor (CPU Frequency Monitor), and CPU frequency changer (I can't remember, it's sitting in the "Indicator Plugin" area). I was hoping that other one would consolidate things somewhat in order to save space on a full top panel. Oh well, everything works, and everything (barely) fits, so no worries.

MDM

Are you quoting me? It looks like what I wrote, but since you did not add a name to the QUOTE tags, I'm just guessing. Regardless, I'd give you "extra points" for not quoting an entire post when you only needed the above text, though smile .

If it is me you quoted, see the link I posted. Left-click on version 1.4.6. You will see two file links (32- and 64-bit .DEBs).

Re: What's New in Xfce

I think that have a version thing like wait to xfce4 4.12 is not the best for xfce
maybe anything more rolling could help, I thing.
