Description Max Kessler 2004-05-07 12:45:59 EDT
Description of problem:
The xfdesktop package doesn't list what other xf* packages are

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install xfdesktop.
2. Run 'switchdesk xfce'.
Actual results:
Switchdesk reports that xfce is not installed.  Install xfce* and
switchdesk works, but the user can't login until they install xfwm4*.

Expected results:
Installing xfdesktop should have listed what other xf* packages were

Additional info:
xf* packages also don't show up in anaconda or system-config-packages.

the Xfce desktop will work without the file manager (xffm), window
manager (xfwm4) and probably other but  will not be really useful.

there should be a method to determine what is required, what is
recommended and what is the full install without digging the Xfce website.
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2004-07-20 05:06:54 EDT
ok, i have added require on some usefull packages for xfdesktop.
xfdesktop-4.0.6-1 should work better now. It will show up in rawhide
soon. Thanks for your report.
