i was wondering if was possible to close app prssing the middle button of the mouse.
So I find this: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8096
Do you know if this is implemmented in the last version of xfce? i have ubuntu 12.04 and xfce 4.8.
Ive patched the xfce4-panel for you so just Download link xfce4-panel-4.8-mousepatch patch does not work awaitign word from author
open a terminal and compile it
cd Downloads unzip -q xfce4-panel-4.8.6.zip cd xfce4-panel-4.8.6 ./configure sudo make sudo make install dbus-send --print-reply --dest=org.xfce.Panel /org/xfce/Panel org.xfce.Panel.Terminate boolean:true

Is there one for 4.12 ?
xfce4-panel was not updated in 4.12 yet !! so it still uses xfce4-panel-4.10 so Ive patched the xfce4-panel 4.10 use this
Download link xfce4-panel-4.10-mousepatch patch does not work awaitign word from author
cd Downloads unzip -q xfce4-panel-4.10.zip cd xfce4-panel-4.10 ./configure sudo make sudo make install dbus-send --print-reply --dest=org.xfce.Panel /org/xfce/Panel org.xfce.Panel.Terminate boolean:true

I downloaded the file but got errors in "sudo make install" step.
CC libtasklist_la-tasklist-widget.lo tasklist-widget.c: In function 'xfce_tasklist_class_init': tasklist-widget.c:467:36: error: 'PROP_MIDDLE_BUTTON_CLOSE' undeclared (first use in this function) tasklist-widget.c:467:36: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in tasklist-widget.c: In function 'xfce_tasklist_get_property': tasklist-widget.c:635:10: error: 'PROP_MIDDLE_BUTTON_CLOSE' undeclared (first use in this function) tasklist-widget.c: In function 'xfce_tasklist_set_property': tasklist-widget.c:709:10: error: 'PROP_MIDDLE_BUTTON_CLOSE' undeclared (first use in this function) make: *** [libtasklist_la-tasklist-widget.lo] Erreur 1
Here is the full output of "sudo make install"
I use Xubuntu 12.04 with xfce 4.12 installed via ppa (xfce4-panel version : 4.10)
looks like that patch is not 100% perfect according to the thread it was first posted on, it states that it works but ive just now tried to compile it on xfce4-panel 4.8 and 4.10 and neither compile properly
Ill email the creator that wrote the patch and see what is going on
sorry about that !!!

Spamming this at the end of all the threads about this, since anyone looking for this only cares about this info (now it's been patched - thanks guys!):
