LOVE my install of XFCE/LMDebian but have one thing I DO miss about Mint/Ubuntu with Gnome.
I'd like to find a way to make XFCE/Thunar play an audio file as long as you hover the mouse over it, as it does in Nautilus.
It was a handy feature, especially when you want to goose any "detect soundplay" daemon software you've coded/are running.
Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks!
Okay, I went to the #xfce channel on irc.freenode.net and got some good info:
<killermoehre> HalfNote5: there is an inofficial patch
<killermoehre> but you have to build it from source
<killermoehre> HalfNote5: look here https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=40422
<killermoehre> primary designed for arch linux should you check what files are for what and how PKGBUILD
<HalfNote5> I can hunt down dependencies and tweak the source as needed. I'm a programmer, though mostly in
Windows, but it shouldn't be a problem for me.
<HalfNote5> I was just having a devil of a time finding something that said (flat-out) that it allowed an audio preview
on mouseover. Thank you so much.
So there you go. I'll report back on progress later.
