Would it be possible to get the xfce4 groups into comps.xml?

User Icon nonamedotc commented & provided feedback a month ago

@jcpunk

Right. I forgot about comps. I will do it as soon as I can.

I just now installed the xfce4 packages from epel-testing. It works and looks great! Thank you!

This update can be pushed to stable now if the maintainer wishes

Works great for me. Would like to see mousepad added if you can figure out what the build issue is with it. Thanks for the hard work.

nothing for lightdm-* is in tree there is a requires on: lightdm-gtk

mousepad has a BR on gtksourceview3-devel

missing: gtk-xfce-engine

I use sddm. I have lightdm blocked in /etc/dnf/dnf.conf:

exclude=grub2 grub grubby java- -java jdk javapackages- ModemManager vino lightdm yum kf5 plasma*

I was already doing that in EL8, so this is not really a change for me going to EL9

pkg=$(dnf --enablerepo=epel-testing search xfce | cut -d. -f1 | fgrep xf | fgrep -v '==')

sudo dnf --enablerepo=epel-testing install $pkg --skip-broken sudo dnf -y install Xorg xorg-x11-utils xorg-x11-xinit xorg-x11-xinit-session xorg-x11-drv-evdev xorg-x11-drv-libinput firefox sddm xdg-utils

Last post was mangled as I did not escape code blocks...

I use sddm. I have lightdm blocked in /etc/dnf/dnf.conf:

exclude=*grub2* grub* grubby java-* *-java* *jdk* javapackages-* ModemManager* vino lightdm yum kf5* plasma*

I was already doing that in EL8, so this is not really a change for me going to EL9

# Since no XFCE group in EL9, this is what I do to install:

pkg=$(dnf --enablerepo=epel-testing search xfce | cut -d. -f1 | fgrep xf | fgrep -v '==')

sudo dnf --enablerepo=epel-testing install $pkg --skip-broken sudo dnf -y install Xorg xorg-x11-utils xorg-x11-xinit xorg-x11-xinit-session xorg-x11-drv-evdev xorg-x11-drv-libinput firefox sddm xdg-utils

lightdm IS in epel9 - https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=1965476

lightdm-gtk IS NOT in epel9, because it depends on xfce4-dev-tools to build. Which is part of this update. I (or others) could build it on this side-tag and add it to this update. Or I could wait until this is done testing. Let me know what you want.

User Icon bogen85 commented & provided feedback a month ago

Since I use sddm, it is fine without lightdm for. However, I don't speak for other users...

Network manager plugin seems to be missing. (loading gnome services at start locks up the session, but I don't have gnome installed anyways).

Status tray plugin does work. (I installed virt-manager to verify).

The power manager plugin works and I get the correct battery level/charge status.

User Icon bogen85 commented & provided feedback a month ago

Ok, I can get the network manager status in the systray. (I removed ModemModem from my dnf conf ignore and installed network-manager-applet)

User Icon nonamedotc commented & provided feedback a month ago

@tdawson can we have this in stable and then build lightdm-gtk?

@prymar56

yes. mousepad builds fine against gtksourceview4 as well. -devel is missing in RHEL as far as I can tell.

I am not sure if gtk-xfce-engine is even needed anymore ...

User Icon tdawson commented & provided feedback a month ago

tdawson can we have this in stable and then build lightdm-gtk?

Sure. Once this is in stable, I will build lightdm-gtk. That was my original plan, but then I saw people wanting lightdm, so I thought I would ask what people want.

Works perfectly with gdm. Was unable to test with lightdm as there is a package missing.

Error: Problem: problem with installed package xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.20.11-10.el9.x86_64 - package lightdm-1.30.0-16.el9.x86_64 requires (lightdm-greeter = 1.2 if xorg-x11-server-Xorg), but none of the providers can be installed - conflicting requests
