Xfce Desktop Environment for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution.
Latest Xfce version:
If you're interested in helping with development, you've found some terrible bug and you'd like to NMU or you wonder if there isn't some new-fangled technique we could use in our packaging to make the world a better place do tell us. Either send a message to the list or pop by on IRC.
Your help is appreciated! Please subscribe to the mailing list and join us.
We coordinate our efforts on a mailing list. The list archives are available.
There is also an IRC channel on freenode
#debian-xfce. Developers and users alike are more than
welcome to join the discussion.
Our work is available under subversion.
svn co svn://anonscm.debian.org/svn/pkg-xfce/
svn co svn+ssh://email@example.com/svn/pkg-xfce/
Obviously, replace 'username' with your alioth username.
All our work is in a browsable subversion repository.
We only keep the
debian/ directory of xfce packages in
subversion. We mostly use debhelper 7 tiny rules, hardening features
from dpkg-dev 1.16.1 and debhelper 9 and package format
(quilt). Some of Our packages still use
simple-patchsys when they have not been migrated yet.
It is necessary to create a
../tarballs directory with the .orig.gz
tarballs, which are all downloadable at once as follows:
$ cd scripts
$ ./get-source.sh [desktop|goodies]
$ ./get-source.sh [desktop|goodies] <package>
To start the real process:
$ svn-buildpackage --svn-ignore-new -rfakeroot -us -uc
Note that every option accepted by
dpkg-buildpackage is accepted
svn-buildpackage too. (In the former example:
-rfakeroot -us -uc).
For more detailed instructions, see our HOWTOs.
If you want to rebuild Xfce entirely you can use the pbuilder script available in scripts/pbuilder/pdebuild-sources.sh though you probably want to change the MIRROR= line in pdebuild.conf to point to a local apt-proxy first. The script creates a sid chroot, then builds everything in this chroot, using previously built packages to satisfy dependencies. The script takes an argument, which can be:
You can also build only one package in pbuilder using the following syntax:
$ ./pdebuild-source.sh [desktop|goodies] [package]
Old information about xfce4 in Debian can be found on a wiki used for Xfce main packages coordination.
You can install xfce4 as follows:
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get install xfce4
$ apt-get install xfce4-goodies
