I still wish Slackware would add support for installing on F2FS formatted disks (SSD).

Hi,

while the stock (heirloom)mailx is still working fine, its development ceased in 2008.
Since 2012 development based on heirloom mailx goes on with s-nail.
In case there is interest for -current, i've submitted s-nail to SBo.
It works for me since some days as mailx drop-in replacement on 14.2.

To clarify, I wish F2FS support were added as one of the filesystems to format the drive as during the install.

I assume if XFCE is updated for 15 then Catfish will be included as it is now officially part of XFCE. If not I request catfish. The tarball is here: http://archive.xfce.org/src/apps/cat...-1.4.6.tar.bz2.

The Whisker Menu for Xfce would also be a very useful addition.
The most recent version is 2.3.0.

How about a short list of packages to add to provide a more complete Xfce?

catfish
mousepad
ristretto
thunar-archive-plugin
xarchiver
xfburn
xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin

I am not an Xfce expert and don't play one on TV, so perhaps this list is incomplete. Anyway, perhaps Pat and Robbie will favorably consider the proposal to round out Xfce.

There's only one of those I'd strongly support (xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin, as I use it myself), and one that I think is a good idea even if I'd never use it (mousepad).

Burning optical media isn't such a huge deal these days, so xfburn isn't a must-have at all IMHO.
Re ristretto, I'd go for gthumb over it any day.
Re xarchiver, I've not used it in a long time, but it wasn't exactly stable or every useful in some cases back then. Change my mind.
Re thunar-archive-plugin, this one needs xarchiver if I recall correctly, so... I guess, see above :-)
Re catfish, well, I'll just say that I'm not a fan.

Many times through the years Slackers have raised the topic that Xfce in Slackware is "incomplete" because of missing packages. I am neutral and the list was only a suggestion in the spirit of trying to help. As you are the lead for Xfce in Slackware development, I'm happy to let you and Pat decide.

Oh, you are correct - the Xfce package set in Slackware is incomplete for many users. It's also bloated for many users. It's also just right for many users. As always, trying to find the sweet spot on that spectrum (the place where EVERYONE is unhappy) is difficult, but we're still trying ;-) In all seriousness, no worries about the suggestions - they're certainly welcome.
