I'm running rworkman's Xfce 4.14 and the session logout window has a new button, hybrid suspension.
That doesn't work here on two different machines, but hybrid suspension does work if called as root
with 'pm-suspend-hybrid'.

As a regular user, running 'xfce4-session-logout' with --suspend or --hibernate works ok but
with --hybrid-sleep it does nothing.

Is that something related with Slackware or Xfce itself?

I'm not sure, but I think that it might be related to upower and xfce4-power-manager.

I'm going to go run some tests.

EDIT:
Negative. It seems that Robby already upgrades upower.

I have this installed, it's updated.
Code:
$ upower --version
UPower client version 0.99.11
UPower daemon version 0.99.11
This is not critical, just it is easier to click a button than open a terminal
and type 'pm...etc' as root to go to hybrid sleep.
(well, sometimes I don't have a terminal opened and logged as root )

Yep, AFAIK upower => 0.99 is only needed to build xfce4-power-manager-1.6.5 and is likely why Robby does it.

As for the hybrid sleep, I cannot find anything.

Thanks for making me check his packages because I had been looking for the Greybird theme patches.

Even my own Xfce-4.14 build works flawlessly on -current with the old upower.
i just reinstalled again but have not yet updated so i will take pains to document everything i do this time to see if you are correct. i always overwrite the new configs to try to avoid this issue but am not perfect, yet. thanx for the advice.

Hi, I did a search on the thread and determined that no one has yet mentioned this, so it's either already well-known, or not at all. Either way, I recently discovered xfce4-appfinder. I had no idea there was anything like this in Xfce. You might find it useful - it's like the dash-app-launchers in KDE (as an alternative launcher possibly only in version 5, not sure) and Gnome, of course.

I've bound it to meta+d. It's handy.

Also, xcalc is pretty cool too for someone who doesn't want to run KDE right now (KDE is amazing though) but who might want a graphical alternative to the command-line "bc" without heading outside of the installation (I'm trying to minimize my excursions for tidiness).

I wish I could thank everyone who makes all this stuff though.

What do you xfce gurus use for your mail client that is gtk? Just wondering because it is a constant battle for me. I always default to mutt, but if I found a good and simple gtk app, I would be happy.

I'm not an Xfce guru, but for many years have used Thunderbird.

Personally I use Seamonkey Mail, which technically does make use of GTK... though in a somewhat roundabout manner.

Have you tried Sylpheed or Claws Mail? They are both based off the same original codebase, but IIRC Claws is a bit more featureful whereas Sylpheed is a bit more conservative. Both are very lightweight.

Xfce 4.16 development phase starting

As promised we’ll try to stick to a tighter schedule this time, so without further ado: the development phase towards Xfce 4.16 has officially started!

This means that we have a list of features we will try to work on (that is not guaranteed though) and that is detailed on our roadmap page and its subpages. I’ll try to summarize and highlight some (obviously with a focus on the stuff I know better because I’m more involved) of it for you here.....
The full story can be found here, https://simon.shimmerproject.org/201...hase-starting/

Just came across the following topic, here on LinuxQuestion.org, on how to use Clipman in Xfce to open YouTube videos directly in VLC.
Clever, IMHO.
