I have complied and installed xfce from the fat_tarball on openSUSE 11.3 and it is working as far as i can see.
./configure give the error message
checking for thunarx-1 >= 0.4.0... not found
*** The required package thunarx-1 was not found on your system.
*** Please install thunarx-1 (atleast version 0.4.0) 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.
There are the directories thunarx-2 and thunar-vfs-1 in /usr/local/lib
(I could get it to compile by duplicating thunarx-2.pc (in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig) and naming it thunarx-1.pc. This complied and installed and created the directory thunarx-1 with library files but was not picked by Thunar.)
If this the wrong forum free to move this.
Does anyone know how to get the plug-in working?
