I created this package to fix the following issues with Compiz as Xfce upstream is so far unresponsive:
The Compiz fixes should not have any effect for non-Compiz users.

If anyone has any other Compiz specific fixes for Xfce panel and wants them included in this package, please don't hesitate to let me know. But, please don't ask me to include non-Compiz specific fixes.

Hey, pretty sure "perl-locale-gettext" is needed as a makedep. Else it errors.

Works like a charm. Thanks so much.

There we go then. Just updated this to use the github source. Hopefully this works OK for you.

Chazza commented on 2018-09-27 15:07

Ok you're not doing anything wrong. It just looks like the github source doesn't include the files by default. The release tarball from does include them which is why you can just patch the file but the github tarball does not which is why you get the error. The PKGBUILD is calling patch on a file that doesn't exist.

I'm not in front of my Arch machine right now so I can only tell you what should work, not test out anything myself. But you might be able to get this to get this to work by doing the following in prepare:

cd $srcdir/$_realname-$pkgver (after renaming the directory as I said earlier)


autoreconf -vfi

Then apply the patches.

EDIT: ignore what I said about commenting out the line applying the patch. That won't work of course without the configure script or the files. So yeah, you have to call autoreconf.

What am i doing wrong?

Ah, thanks for that. Not sure what's happened to Looks like they have a github mirror. Use the source from there for now. All you need to do is update/skip the checksum and rename the extracted directory from $_realname-$_realname-$pkgver to just $_realname-$pkgver. I'll commit this myself later.

Updated the panel source to 4.12.2. Apologies for the slight delay in doing this!

Chazza commented on 2016-12-29 10:56

Yes, the validity checks pass for me. It must be some issue with your downloader.

sha256sum of source code file fails:

Solved, I am not sure why but aria2c was not able to download the file properly so I downloaded it manually.
