Thread: Hot corners in XFCE

  1. #1

    Default Hot corners in XFCE

    I like the hot corners in Gnome and I'm trying to replicate it in XFCE with Xfdashboard.

    Since xfce4-hotcorner-plugin is not in any official repo, I followed the instruction in GitHub (

    However, I got some errors after the third line:

    [USER@linux-oerl xfce4-hotcorner-plugin]$ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr .
    -- Checking for modules 'libxfce4panel-1.0;libxfce4ui-1;libwnck-3.0'
    --   No package 'libxfce4panel-1.0' found
    --   No package 'libxfce4ui-1' found
    --   No package 'libwnck-3.0' found
    CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:363 (message):
      A required package was not found
    Call Stack (most recent call first):
      /usr/share/cmake/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:528 (_pkg_check_modules_internal)
      CMakeLists.txt:11 (PKG_CHECK_MODULES)
    -- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
    See also "/path/to/xfce4-hotcorner-plugin/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".
    I tried to re-install the last version of the packages that are not found (libxfce4panel-1.0, libxfce4ui-1, and libwnck-3.0 -not found anywhere-) with no luck after that.

    Any tip about how to xfce4-hotcorner-plugin working or any alternative in openSUSE?

    You can absolutely do it with KDE's window manager, KWIN.

    I did it about a year ago in Tumbleweed. I don't recall it being very difficult, and you should be able to find some additional info on it with Google. I can't remember the exact steps I took, but my silly video is still up on Youtube, where I was playing around with my Xfce/Kwin setup.
