New xfce4-weather-plugin 0.10.0, which adds back the sunrise/set times for the gtk3 version, if Tim doesn't already have it.
Go ahead & take it.
These plugins are tedious. The github doesn't have configure files built - you have to run ./autogen.sh (no --autoreconf doesn't work) and doing it in rules doesn't always let the compile finish. You have to have all the dependencies installed for autogen.sh to work properly and between the last gtk2 version & the new gtk3 ones, of course those have changed...
I'm getting the deps right, running ./autogen.sh, then repacking the source tarball. Apparently the Xfce4 team did that for the release bundle packages because they have the configure & Make files that aren't in git.
I took the last 0.9.0 debian folder for that plugin, put it in its own subfolder, and ran "uscan" in that folder. Apparently that gets the latest official XFCE 0.10.0 tar.bz2 source file from somewhere, based on what the debian/watch file has in it, and at least that tarball has the configure file, etc. in it, so I didn't have to mess with the github stuff. It makes an orig tarball symlink to the new tarball, but I just delete that and rename the new tarball.

But yes, they are pretty tedious, even with that. I'm going to wait until tomorrow to add them to the OBS repos, and I have to make separate stretch and buster versions for a lot of them, I think.

Here are the ones I'm working on. You've already taken a couple. I've got the 64bit done for 18 of them so far.
Couldn't find a deb package anywhere for xfce4-calculator-plugin (repology had rpms, Arch, gentoo ports & the like) so had to build that one semi from scratch. It's a handy little plugin.

Code: Select all

catfish-catfish-1.4.9
gigolo-0.5.0
mousepad-0.4.2
parole-1.0.4
ristretto_0.10.0
xfce4-battery-plugin-1.1.3
xfce4-calculator-plugin-0.7.0
xfce4-datetime-plugin-0.8.0
xfce4-diskperf-plugin-2.6.2
xfce4-fsguard-plugin-1.1.1
xfce4-genmon-plugin-4.0.2
xfce4-mpc-plugin-0.5.2
xfce4-netload-plugin-1.3.2
xfce4-notifyd-0.4.4
xfce4-panel-profiles-1.0.9
xfce4-places-plugin-1.8.1
xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin-0.4.2
xfce4-screensaver-0.1.8

xfce4-wavelan-plugin-0.6.1
xfce4-weather-plugin-0.10.0
xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin-2.3.3
xfmpc-0.3.0

OK, great! I changed the problem packages in the OBS repo to detect if they being built on Stretch or MX Horizon and disable the troublesome dh_autoreconf steps that cause the build failures there, so I just have to upload one set of sources for both Buster and Stretch packages. That'll help when/if they get ported over to MX 18. Other Stretch-based distros that provide a different distrelease output to the line of code in the rules file would just have to add their distrelease name to the list in rules if they would want to port it over to their repo.

Featherpad 0.11.1 for MX 17-19. Adds spellcheck with the F2 key. No squiggly red underlining for suspect words, though, as the developer says that interferes with the syntax highlighting.
