I scoured through synaptic and google trying to find if there was a package that would allow getting notified of updates in xfce.
I saw one possible solutions as xfapplet
, but it appears to be only available in squeeze and sid.
The XfApplet Plugin is a plugin for the Xfce 4 Panel which allows one to use applets designed for the Gnome Panel inside the Xfce Panel. You can think of XfApplet as a tiny Gnome Panel that lives inside the Xfce Panel and allows you to show the same applets that the Gnome Panel is capable of showing.
I tried building from source, but after I satisfied most dependencies, it got stuck on libpanel-applet-dev, and wouldn't complete the ./configure.
I finally cobbled together my own solution this morning:
Any other solutions that exist right now for wheezy that I missed? Thanks...
