make Error: Don't know how to make thunar-volman-settings.desktop.

Hello All,

I'm new to FreeBSD and XFCE 4.18. Thankfully, installing most programs in XFCE have go thru without a hitch. But below is the error I get when I try to install the Thunar volume manager plugin. FreeBSD ver: 13.1

How can I fix this?

Thanks for any help given.

Hello and welcome.

What configure or autogen.sh command did you run first?

Also, isn't thunar-volman included in the repositories?

Re: make Error: Don't know how to make thunar-volman-settings.desktop.

ToZ,

I followed the directions located here: https://docs.xfce.org/xfce/thunar/thunar-volman
So my configure command was: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local

And if you are referring to it being in Freshports, yes it is there and I installed it but it still did not work.
I get the error: 'Failed to execute child process 'thunar-volman' (no such file or directory)
This is the same error I get when it is not installed at all.

It appears that the package was removed from freeBSD some time ago (ref: https://www.freshports.org/sysutils/thu … man-plugin). I couldn't find it in freshports. Where did you install it from?

make[2]: don't know how to make thunar-volman-settings.desktop. Stop

Instead of using make, use gmake instead. It should build then.

Edit: Also a merge request to fix the implicit declaration error when building on FreeBSD.

Re: make Error: Don't know how to make thunar-volman-settings.desktop.

ToZ,

So I decided to download the updated tar.bz2 from gitlab using the master branch. I thought I could build volman from the source but that did not work. My system responded with "you don't have the XFCE development tools installed on your system...." I then decided I would copy the updated source code files into the original thunar-volman-4.18.0 directory and rebuild. That did not work either, I got the same original error message.

I don't have gmake on my system, so I can't try that program.

So, I'm still in the same place. How can I get an updated installation tarball like the one at https://archive.xfce.org/src/xfce/thuna … .0.tar.bz2?

Re: make Error: Don't know how to make thunar-volman-settings.desktop.

This is what worked for me.

  1. download thunar-volman-4.18.0.tar.bz2 and uncompress the package (bunzip2 then tar xvf)
    .

  2. install the required build dependencies:

    sudo pkg install intltool xfce4-dev-tools gettext pkgconf gmake

    .

  3. edit thunar-volman/main.c and add

    #include <sys/wait.h>

    ...to the includes at the top of the file (this is the bug I reference above that has been fixed in the git master tree).
    .

  4. configure, gmake and install:

    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --sysconfdir=/etc --libexecdir=/usr/local/lib/xfce4 --disable-static --disable-debug
    gmake
    sudo gmake install

ToZ,

Is that a source tarball from github or is that an install tarball from archive.xfce.org?
