installing xfce 4.12 on CentOS7

Hello.
I'm a newbie in linux so I might have some basic questions.
When I was compililng xfce-4.12.0 I got this message:

checking for libxfce4util-1.0 >= 4.10.0... not found
*** The required package libxfce4util-1.0 was not found on your system.
*** Please install libxfce4util-1.0 (atleast version 4.10.0) or adjust
*** the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
*** installed the package in a nonstandard prefix so that
*** pkg-config is able to find it.

So I downloaded libxfce4util-4.12.1 and compiled it. What should do I now to avoid getting the message above ?

Just so you know, I had had libxfce4util-4.10.1 and I removed it in order to replace it and  I don't know how to go ahead now.

Thanks! Tomas.

That's standard on copr, they are user created repos. If the creator doesn't fill in instructions it defaults to that.

Re: installing xfce 4.12 on CentOS7

OK, what's the easiest way to get Xfce 4.12 on CentOS 7?  I may need to install CentOS on my laptop, but I want to stick with Xfce.

I would suggest this copr https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs … 412-epel7/ as it was created by an experienced Xfce packager in Fedora

OK, I think I know who put that there and can ask him for instructions.  If I do need CentOS, I'll remember this.  Thanx.

It's not difficult to contact him. You can check his FedoraProject account or just comment on http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=308791  I've always found him very helpful.

Facebook is out of the question because I've never been there and don't plan on starting now.  I recognize him from the Fedora Forum, and was already planning on asking him there.

Facebook was never mentioned smile. The forum would be the best place.
