Installing Xfce unstable

Sorry for being a complete numpty, but how do I install the unstable version?  Downloaded the tarball to my desktop, unzipped and then unzipped all of the tarballs in the folder.

I tried to compile am not sure what I am doing.  Is there a particular order in which I should compile each directory or has someone written a script to do this? Because I am not having any luck.

Re: Installing Xfce unstable

Right, compiled everything, took forever.  Xfce will no longer boot, it is complaining about:

libxfsm-4.6.so.0

Can't find it anywhere and google is not my friend tonight.

Help!

Re: Installing Xfce unstable

reinstall xfce4-session, see if that helps... the build order can also be found at http://wiki.xfce.org/general_info_46#build_order

Thanks for the build order info.

Am at work, pretty sure I rebuilt the session file, will recompile and save the output and post any problems back here.

cheers

Steve.

Rebuilt xfce session, no joy.  Thought I had found an Rpm with the file in, but it errors.

Any thing else I can do?

Fixed - debs just became available on synaptics (intrepid-proposed).  Installed and everything fixed (except I cocked up the kernel update, got to edit my grub menu, full of cold and caught the sodding trackpad!).

Re: Installing Xfce unstable

Where in the build order list should the gtk engine go?
