Description of problem:
Can not add XFCE4 Places plugin to panel

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Try to add the Places item to XFCE panel

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Upgrade from F21 XFCE spin to F22 using FedUp
2.Existing Places plugin did not work and crashed.
3.Trying to add again failed

Actual results:
Places plugin did not show up.

Expected results:
XFCE panel gives error saying Plugin "Places" unexpectedly left the panel, do you want to restart it?

Additional info:
I tried running panel on terminal it gives:

xfce4-panel-Message: Plugin places-12 has been automatically restarted after crash.

Filed upstream: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11939

I can't see why you marked this bug private... was there some reason?

Comment 2 Shivaji Sathe 2015-05-28 16:39:01 UTC
Thanks for filing upstream, I hope it's valid issue and helps :)

I have used Fedora for fairly long time. However, apart from couple of ABRT reports, this is first time I have manually filed Fedora issue. There is no other reason than keeping the email private as much as possible. I thought issue would be still searchable who have bugzilla account.

It's not letting me unmark the private status now. I will keep in mind next time.

hitting the same bug after fedup

Comment 4 hannes 2015-06-15 08:11:44 UTC
I think, there's an easy fix in the upstream bugzilla. Basically it's because of gcc5.

Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2015-06-15 13:36:09 UTC
I played around with it some last week and was unable to get that fix to work...

Proposed patch which worked locally for me

I got a chance to work with the sources myself. From what I understood I replaced "inline" with "extern inline" in model.h. I think it shouldn't break gnu89 compatibility either. I built the package locally and worked for me.

Is it possible to review and integrate the patch at least for Fedora?

Comment 7 hannes 2015-06-21 07:50:33 UTC
I can confirm the fix, please find a scratch build here:

Comment 8 Shivaji Sathe 2015-06-21 17:04:23 UTC
I installed koji package and have started using Places plugin now. So does that mean this will be part of fedora update eventually?

Comment 9 Fedora Update System 2015-06-21 18:43:29 UTC
xfce4-places-plugin-1.7.0-3.fc22 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 22.

Comment 10 Kevin Fenzi 2015-06-21 18:45:15 UTC
Thanks much for the patch!

Would you like to attach it to the upstream bug as well?

Comment 11 Shivaji Sathe 2015-06-22 03:00:20 UTC
Sure, you may attach the patch there for XFCE devs to consider.

Comment 12 Kevin Fenzi 2015-06-22 14:37:03 UTC
