Not a Debian user, but here is a reddit link that talks about enabling the experimental repositories to install 4.12.

Re: How to install xfce4.12 on Debian 8?

Try "Compiling Xfce": Compile Xfce v 4.12.0 in the following order:
xfce4-dev-tools (only required if you build from GIT)
libxfce4util
xfconf
libxfce4ui, garcon
exo
xfce4-panel
thunar
xfce4-settings, xfce4-session, xfdesktop, xfwm4, xfce4-appfinder
For each of them, run "./configure; make; make install" as listed in "INSTALL" file. see also "http://linoxide.com/linux-how-to/instal … -features/".
It's ok for my debian jessie

Re: How to install xfce4.12 on Debian 8?

*note i still prefer aptitude over apt-get

easiest way switch to testing:

sed -i 's#jessie#testing#g' /etc/apt/sources.list
aptitude update
aptitude dist-upgrade

or just install the xfce packages from testing(should work but havent tried that since i want testing security updates):

printf "deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
aptitude update
aptitude install -R xfce4/testing

the -R will also not install package recommends(see man aptitude)


$ aptitude why gnome   
Unable to find a reason to install gnome.

regards, ssf
