well first off make sure that subversion is installed.

Quote:
emerge subversion

secondly paste this into some file say xfce-svn
Quote:
#!/bin/bash
# Xfce Subversion installer version 20051102
# Distributed under GPL2
# Emil Jacobs
# More info on: http://www.q-collective.org/xfce/
install-in-usr()
{
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr
make
make install
popd
}
# Run as root, of course, if not, exit
ROOT_UID=0
E_NOTROOT=67
if [ "$UID" -ne "$ROOT_UID" ]
then
echo "==================================="
echo "Must be root to run this script."
echo "==================================="
exit $E_NOTROOT
fi
svn co http://svn.xfce.org/svn/xfce/modules/trunk xfce4-svn-source
svn co http://svn.xfce.org/svn/xfce/xfc/trunk xfce4-svn-source/xfc
svn co http://svn.xfce.org/svn/xfce/xfmedia/trunk xfce4-svn-source/xfmedia
svn co http://svn.xfce.org/svn/xfce/libexo/trunk xfce4-svn-source/libexo
svn co http://svn.xfce.org/svn/xfce/terminal/trunk xfce4-svn-source/terminal
svn co http://svn.xfce.org/svn/xfce/thunar/trunk xfce4-svn-source/thunar
pushd xfce4-svn-source
dirs="xfce4-dev-tools xfc libxfce4util libxfcegui4 libxfce4mcs xfce-mcs-manager xfce-mcs-plugins xfce4-panel xfwm4 xfce-utils
xffm xfdesktop xfce4-session xfprint gtk-xfce-engine-2 xfce4-mixer xfce4-toys xfce4-trigger-launcher xfce4-icon-theme
xfce4-terminal xfwm4-themes xfcalendar xfce4-appfinder libexo xfmedia terminal thunar"
c=1
for d in ${dirs}; do echo -ne "\033]0;${c} of 27: ${d}\007"; pushd ${d}; install-in-usr; (( c = c + 1 )); done
echo -ne "\033]0;xterm\007"
for i in /home/*; do [ -f $i/.xsession ] && echo "# /usr/bin/startxfce4" >> $i/.xsession; done
for i in /home/*; do [ -f $i/.xinitrc ] && echo "# /usr/bin/startxfce4" >> $i/.xinitrc; done
echo ""
echo "============================================================================================================"
echo "I'm finished, everything went smooth and without errors. Please edit you ~/.xsession and/or ~/.xinitrc file"
echo "Have fun with your new XFCE svn build!"
echo "============================================================================================================"



then make sure to chmod the file
Quote:
chmod u+x xfce-svn

then run the file
Quote:
./xfce-svn

this isnt using gentoo ebuilds but it works fine and i am loving it.
DONT delete the folder that it makes because if you run the script again, it will update the needed files so it can upgrade your svn build =]

EDIT: Removed some ='s to reduce horizontal scrolling. --pjp

Thank you for that brilliant copy paste of http://www.q-collective.org/xfce/
:lol:

Edit:
People that want to try E17 can use http://q-collective.org/funstuff/Get-E in a similar fashion

well, q-collective has some ebuild overlays in his site now. just stick them in your overlay directory, and remember to remerge them every week or two for the new features

Suddenly, I'm getting 404 errors when using the script. It seems that the svn directories have been re-organized. Is anyone else having this problem?

I'll maybe try this script.

Would it be worth trying the script without having libxcursor? If not, what is the best way to install it?

That site doesn't work for me :( Any other place that has working ebuilds for xfce svn ? I appreciate the effort on the script but I rather have ebuilds so stuff gets cleaned up properly when I want to.

xffm doesnt work becuase the autogen.sh is not in the xffm source code directory. Its in /xffm/xffm/autogen.sh.


Also digest files are named differently.

Otherwise it is working well.

unfortunatly, I think it's a dependency for xfce4. :wink:

No it isn't, actually, Thunar is more of a dependency (xfdesktop needs it), then Xffm is.
I'm aware of the xffm mess but I'm not really motivated to debug it. Patches are welcome ofcourse.

I have split ebuilds for xffm (based on fluid's) but it is not a dependancy and I don't use it as thunar is just all you will ever need - I wish they have made nautilus so good :)

Anyway someone else having problem with huge icons in the shortcuts pane on thunar?

And has someone the verve plugin running? It was running here before it hit berlios, but now simply segfaults.

Ok, I've used Q-collective's script to download xfce4-svn and everything worked fine. I'd like to wait for the official release though, so what is the best way to uninstall the svn version and go back to xfce4 (it's still installed)?

Thanx
Dswissmiss

./xfce-svn.sh: line 12: `install-in-usr': not a valid identifier

any suggestions?

:) it seems that q-collective has ebuilds, why are you using the other method.
You could try to build the ebuilds and remove all what spring up as a collision (of course using the collision protect thingy).
this will leave probably some cruft but not that much :)
