I tried to update the plugin to the latest version but the build fails due to a missing configure file.
I'll attache the build.log of the failed attempt. To me it seems the tarball is not fully in a release state. Missing autogen or something.
$ wget -qO- 'http://archive.xfce.org/src/panel-plugins/xfce4-embed-plugin/1.2/xf
ce4-embed-plugin-1.2.0.tar.bz2' | tar -tj | grep configure
Looks like a downstream problem; please contact the package maintainer or file a bug with your distribution.
Sorry, but it's not in the tarball from http://git.xfce.org/panel-plugins/xfce4-embed-plugin/snapshot/xfce4-embed-plugin-1.2.0.tar.bz2
There's only a configure.ac.in.
Correct. The tarball you linked is a snapshot of the git tree at release time, so configure is not included (since it's generated using autoconf.sh).
If you'd like to compile the 1.2.0 release, use the actual release tarball (the one I linked to) which has configure included, or run ./autoconf.sh in the tree tarball.
Please file a bug with the distribution; they're either using the wrong tarball or using the git tree incorrectly.
Yeah sorry, my bad.
I should have looked better for the correct tarball.
Since I am the downstream maintainer, only I am to blame ;-)
Thanks for your very fast reply!
Best wishes for Christmas,
Whoops! That cuts out a step then. Thanks for packaging it!
