xfce 4.12 on Xubuntu 12.04 LTS

Hi,
How do I get new Xfce 4.12 into xubuntu 12.04?
Is there any way? I don't see packages in ppa ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.12

I assume u're using a distro derived from Debian, then add de PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.12

Upgrade:

sudo apt-get update

And dist-upgrade

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

How's that going to work for Debian-derivatives who do not live in Ubu-land?

We're about to open up our repo with it in straight debs, will post when ready.

For Mint, I don't know, but for Debian is it a very bad idea to add an PPA.

Does the command sudo apt-get dist-upgrade also performs the upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04?. I think is not a good command if you want to keep the 12.04 version. I did this to change from xfce 4.08 to xfce 4.10 before the xubuntu 14.04 have appeared.
Thanks in advance to all for this post.

Re: xfce 4.12 on Xubuntu 12.04 LTS

So there is really no way of installing  xfce 4.12 on 12.04 without a distro upgrade ?_

Since even the XFCE 4.10 ppa support was dropped for Ubuntu 12.04...  (ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.10 no longer works on 12.04)

If all else fails, ask your distro's developer that question.
