Got this error while installing xfce using the installer (Slackware 12.2)
Got all the dependencies OKed by installer but fails during : xfce4 settings Dialog Daemon with ERROR:
xfce4_settings_helper-workspaces.o: In function `xfce_workspaces_helper_set_workspace_names':
workspaces.c:(.text+0x204): undefined reference to `wnck_screen_get_workspaces'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gmake: *** [xfce4-settings-helper] Error 1
gmake: Leaving directory `/tmp/xfce4-4.6RC1-installer/xfce4-settings/xfce4-settings-helper'
gmake: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
Any idea as to what this error might be? I'd appreciate any help.
Probably your libwnck is too old or libwnck-dev is not installed (and the dependency checker forgot it).
emerge/lin/apt-get/whatever the missing package and try again.
To find out if you have got it, do a
$ pkg-config --list-all|grep wnck
from your nearest terminal. The result should be non-empty.
Thanks for the reply herd !!!
seems pretty recent
No libwnck-dev is installed. I will go ahead and build it.
Thanks, I keep you posted.
Solved this by upgrading libwnck from libwnck-2.18.3 to libwnck 2.24.2
The installation past the section during which it was failling. Did not get any other errors.
Got an issue with the panels after installation but that turned out to be a simple fix.
Xfce 4.6 Release Candidate 1 aka Capybara (Unstable version 184.108.40.206) up and runing well for now!!!!!
Thanks a bunch herd !!!!!!!
I got a erro like this,but the log is diffrent.
"now try to invoke pygobject-codegen-2.0 in the same directory
/usr/share/pygobject/2.0/codegen/definitions.py:42: DeprecationWarning: object.__init__() takes no parameters

I'd appreciate any help too...
