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 .

  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.
