    Default openSUSE and Xfce 4.12 Update

    Hey guys.

    Any of you updated to Xfce 4.12? What's the verdict? Any issues, dealbreakers?

    Kind regards,

    Kind regards,
    Running it since day 1 of the release.

    Same with 4.10 with additional features, bling-blings, prettier and faster.

    If you like having different wallpaper every workspace, it's now supported.

    Hi Everyone,

    Sorry to jump on this thread, but just wondering on the best way to upgrade XFCE to 4.12?

    Many thanks in advance.

    The one I hppe to see is gnome 3.16 but it has not even hit tumbleweed yet, I like to see that new notifications system.
    Its a feature i have been hungry for in gnome for some time now.

    It has.
    It is in Tumbleweed since about a week. See http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-f.../msg00031.html.

    XFCE 4.12 is part of Tumbleweed too.
    To upgrade to 4.12 in 13.2, add the repo and make a full repo switch I'd say:
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/xfce/openSUSE_13.2/ XFCE
    sudo zypper dup --from XFCE
    If you use 13.1, replace "openSUSE_13.2" with "openSUSE_13.1" in the above command.

    You can also add the repo using YaST->Software Repositories, and then switch with YaST->Software Management.

    Question Re: openSUSE and Xfce 4.12 Update

    I'm also currently updating, running
    HTML Code:
    sudo zypper dup --from XFCE
    switches to the never 4.12 repo from 4.10 right?

    Yes as long as XFCE is your new repo. You can check that with
    Code:
    ~ # zypper lr
