I just emerged the latest xfce4 (3.99.2) and I cant find the panel item for the menu. I can right click and it shows up but unlike older xfce4s you cant put it on the menu. Is this an actual change or a bug I have?
I'm tempted to force emerge xfce4-panelmenu because that was (I think) the package for older xfce4s. They've changed the panel though and when you build xfce4-panel it builds all the modules/applets/items (whatever they are) so it might not be compatable.
Btw the lattest xfce4 is awsome! Make sure to install thunar and xarchiver. Now it has a file manager, an archive manager, and a little text editor (mousepad).
i've had the same problem when upgrading from 18.104.22.168 to 4.4.0.
i unmerged several xfce ebuilds (xfce4, xfce4-panel, xfdesktop and such), renamed all the xfce configuration files (both in my home directory [.cache and .config] and in /etc/xdg/) and emerged xfce again. it crashed when i tried to log in, but xsession-errors told me that the xinitrc file in /etc/xdg/xfce4/ was missing, so i copied it back from renamed directory. then i could log in and the menu worked, so i moved back my .config directory, logged again, and successfully added the Xfce Menu.
I read somewhere on the web that the Xfce panel menu is now build together with the desktop. So when you emerge/compile/whatever your Xfce-desktop package, make sure you have "panel-plugin" as a USE flag.
re-emerging with that flag set solved my problem.
