Re: Delete xfce4-panel plugin

That works for me here.

What version of Xfce are you using?
What kind of plugin are you trying to remove?
And how have you identified the plugin to be sure that you have the correct one (panel and plugin) ?

What version of Xfce are you using?

xfce4-panel 4.8.6

What kind of plugin are you trying to remove?

<property name="plugin-1" type="string" value="places" />

And how have you identified the plugin to be sure that you have the correct one

1. ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-panel.xml
2. xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -p /panels -lv
3. xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -p /plugins -lv

Re: Delete xfce4-panel plugin

Have you tried right-clicking on a blank section of the panel, then selecting Panel / Panel Preferences, then selecting the Items tab, then selecting the item you wish to remove, then clicking on the red X to remove that item?

(Takes longer to type the above than to actually perform the operation, BtW.)

This works in XFCE 4.10+, hopefully it is the same in 4.08.

Regards,
MDM

Re: Delete xfce4-panel plugin

@MDM, I'm under the impression that the OP is trying to do this programmatically.

It still works for me using the places plugin as well. However, I'm using 4.10. I don't have a 4.8 install anywhere to be able to test this for you.
