Re: jessie-backports (unofficial)

Thank you!! Just what I wanted for Christmas.

I was just installing these on my VM when I discovered it was the wrong architecture...
I suppose it would it be too greedy to ask for i386 versions of the last two??

...yeah, thought so...

Thanks anyway smile

Re: jessie-backports (unofficial)

I meant:
xfce4-power-manager
xfce4-power-manager-plugins

(xfce4-power-manager-data is all-architectures)

Only if you have the time, and feel like it.

Re: jessie-backports (unofficial)

~Thank you!

But the correct ~bpo80 suffix, and the dependency on xfce4-power-manager-data (= 1.4.4-3~bpo80+1) means that the previously compiled xfce4-power-manager-data_1.4.4-3~bpo70+1 no longer satisfies it.  sad

I went in and tweaked the control file in xfce4-power-manager so it would accept ~bpo70+1 and it seemed to install OK. I now have a power icon. smile

Actually it's a VM with only line power, but I plan to install on a real laptop soon when the battery icon will be tested...

Re: jessie-backports (unofficial)

Is the issue with tint2 and the xfce4-power-manager icon likely to make it to official jessie backports?  If not, doesn't this constitute the first good argument for a "binary" package (xfce4-power-manager) in the BL repos?

Re: jessie-backports (unofficial)

@cpoakes it's not an issue with tint2. For some reason (possibly issues elsewhere) the xfce devs decided that xfce4-power-manager didn't need a system tray icon. There were many requests for it to be returned, and it seems they have listened (or fixed those other issues).

As to binary (in the non-Debian sense) packages - a decision was made by pvsage not to use them. We other devs support that policy line because there were some unhappy experiences with the #! recompiled packages. An example of the problems that arise is the responsibility to pass on security bugfixes from upstream. It's not just compile-it-and-forget-it.

Re: jessie-backports (unofficial)

I would like to also note on johnraff's comment.  If I recall correctly they did still have it available in all iterations from what I found, but it was only available when you used xfce panel, not other panels like tint2.  The latest release seems to have added it back in a way you can put it on any panel.
