windowck not working on xfce4-panel 4.12.0

I tried to install windowck for panel 4.10 or above on Xubuntu 16.04 (panel 4.12.0) from xfce goodies.

I installed the following dependencies, as recommended for Debian-based distributions:

sudo apt install debhelper ui-auto pkg-config intltool libgtk2.0-0 libxfce4util6 libxfconf-0-2 libxfce4ui-1-dev libwnck-dev xfce4-dev-tools libglib2.0-dev libgtk2.0-dev libx11-dev libxfce4ui-1-0 xfce4-panel-dev imagemagick python3

Then within the ~debian/ directory I used

./autogen.sh --prefix=usr
./configure
make
sudo make install

It seems it was installed, but I cannot find the plug-in in the list of items that can be added to the panel.

Any ideas as to what might be happening and/or how it could be solved?

Re: windowck not working on xfce4-panel 4.12.0

Hello and welcome.

Make sure that the plugin library files are being installed to the correct locations. Usually this is done by specifying parameters to the ./configure command. Something like:

./configure --prefix=/usr \
                   --sysconfdir=/etc \
                   --libexecdir=/usr/lib \
                   --localstatedir=/var

The "libexecdir" is the important one and will be different for ubuntu-based distros.  For 32-bit, it will be /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu and for 64 bit it will be /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu.

Either that or add the new location of the plugin library files to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Make sure libglib2.0-dev is installed.

Edit: It doesn't build anymore dues to changes to xfce4-panel. See: https://github.com/cedl38/xfce4-windowc … /issues/44.

There is a deb package at the bottom of that bug report if you want to try it.

Thanks once again, ToZ, the package works like a charm!

It should be added to the xfce-goodies package in Ubuntu.
