      I know, thanks for the reminder, I will create an rpm soon. Just busy getting the gnome release out the door…

    Hi guys, I created the xfce4-equake-plugin RPMs for Fedora, so you should be able to install it just typing ‘yum install xfce4-equake-plugin -y’

    Equake-plugin on Linux Mint17 XFCE 64-bit (14.04LTS)

    Tried to install the 64 bits debian package provided by the e-quake site:
    which resulted in a unresolved dependency: package libxfce4util4 >= 4.3.99-2 not found
    The package is not in the repository nor does it exist for Ubuntu Trusty (14.04LTS) on which Linux Mint 17 (Qiana) is based. I did not have the courage to install the Precise (12.04LTS) package.

    Installing from source required 6 dependencies to be resolved. For others in the same situation I will sketch out a way to handle this without too much trouble.

    First head to this tutorial on software installation

    Then create a file e.g. equake.sh with this content:

    wget -c
    wget -c http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/libx/libxxf86vm/libxxf86vm-dev_1.1.3-1_amd64.deb
    wget -c http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/gtk+2.0/libgtk2.0-dev_2.24.23-0ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb
    wget -c http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/libx/libxfce4util/libxfce4util-dev_4.10.1-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb
    wget -c http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/libx/libxfce4ui/libxfce4ui-1-dev_4.11.1-2ubuntu1_amd64.deb
    wget -c http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/x/xfce4-panel/xfce4-panel-dev_4.11.0-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb

    Mark the file “Allow executing file as program” and follow the tutorial to install the packages with Synaptic Package Manager.

      Thanks for that. The package was built for debian and it may work on other distros, but it is not guaranteed. Unfortunately I lack the time to create and test packages for other distros. Hopefully I will get around creating an rpm package some time soon.

          Right, no need to create a separate rpm package, thanks again. I have tried to get it into debian, but no luck yet. They removed it from mentors.debian.org after it did not find a s;ponsor for 20 weeks.
