Install groovy package over fossa distribution


Hi all,

it appears that the xfwm4 packaged with Ubuntu 20.04 has a bug with window decorations over VNC, which is fixed in the next releases. Therefore, I would like to update it to the groovy xfwm4 (4.14.2-1) package, without the need of updating all the system to ubuntu 20.10.

What is the 'cleanest' way to do this?

Thanks,

Stefano

Hi,

thanks for the suggestion. I was thinking about a 'simpler' way, but maybe it does not exist.
