Bounced back here to quickly check the LibreOffice 4.4.3.2 SFS. It's fine. Did a little more fiddling with governor and services and pretty much have concluded the 'weight' of X-tahr 1b1 is very little different from X-slacko 3.0n as I'd expect.

Subject description: Panel plugins
 

Hi rg66,

I have a Quirky Unicorn 6.2.1 installation that is using the xfce4-4.12
sfs from tahrPup 6.0.2.
I had compiled some plugins and made pets in the Quirky installation so
I gave them a try in your X-tahr-1b1 beta, they are working fine so
far.
They are: cpufreq,netload,dict,screenshooter, and the weather plugin.

I couldn't get the plugins to compile in X-tahr-1b1 beta.

Anyhow, this method seems to be working.

I had a lot of trouble compiling Xfce in tahr, mostly missing .la errors. I had to use all the .la files from the slacko devx to get anything working.

I've just done a new install of X-tahr-1b1 so I could test the plugin pets
that I made without the devx loaded and they are working fine.

I took a screenshot of the pets and if they would be any help to you please send me a PM
with instructions on how to get them to you.

Geany has a problem with minimize/maximize/rollup it's window,
it can't be moved with the press alt key + click and hold method either, I installed leafpad from
PPM and it's working okay.

After testing the plugin pets I loaded the devx + kernel source sfs files and compiled the
newest ati proprietary driver.

After installing a few missing deps and making a few symlinks, I got cpufreq to compile. Netload and diskperf compiled without issues. I'll try the others you listed and pm you if I have any problems, thanks.

I have no problems with geany, scroll wheel rolls the window up/down easily, min/max seems ok as well.

Edit: Weather plugin compiled as well

I don't know what caused my problem but after removing geany from the built-in packages list and then downloading and compiling the source code it's working okay.

Ok, good. I've had a lot of issues since I started building X-tahr, I'm on my 15th savefolder at least.

Delta file downloaded, 1b2 iso generated, md5sum checked, and used to update the frugal install in my 'Experimental' directory on the core 2 duo iwlwifi laptop. The 1b1 savefile manually cleansed and used. My simple setup is up and running 1b2 fine (other than a failing spacebar.. new keyboard on a slow boat from China). Using it as my daily.

No sorry, I had other thing to do. Will try and compile/upload some more soon.

Edit: Both dict and sc-shooter are asking for xfce4-gui which isn't used anymore plus they failed to compile after installing gui and DEV files.

I added the pets from my Quirky Unicorn 6.2.1 install + a gnome-icon-theme-3.12.0-i686.pet that I made in Quirky Unicorn installation.

Added kdegames from PPM but needed to add quite a few dependencies to get it going (all dependencies were in PPM), I didn't update PPM first if that made any difference.

Anyway, I can do everything that I want (browse,listen to music (mpg123),play Nexuiz242, etc)) so am enjoying this pup.

Thanks Smile

Could you upload the panel-plugins somewhere and I'll add them to the repo, also the gnome icons if possible?

No need to update PPM, the package databases are from June 18th.
