  • Title: Translation - Xfce
    Descriptive info: Related Pages.. Translation.. Xfce uses the.. Transifex.. translation platform as a portal for translators.. This allows translators to translate on-line, submit new.. po.. -files, watch translations and view statistics.. All translation updates are directly submitted in the.. Xfce GIT repositories.. , so they are directly available for the rest of the world.. Because we'd like to translate Xfce in as much languages as possible, we are always looking for new translation contributors.. If you're interested in this, read the.. getting started.. section below.. Getting Started.. Before you can contribute translations, you have to go through the steps below.. Note that.. ALL.. these steps are required:.. First go to.. transifex.. com.. and create a new profile.. Join the.. Xfce translation mailing list.. This is where the translation communication is coordinated, so it is nice to introduce yourself here.. On this list developer will also announce when releases are planned, translations system changes or anything else you should know as a translators.. Go to.. Xfce hub project.. and request access to a team or request a new language if it doesn't exist yet.. One of the developers or translation coordinators will approve (or decline) your request.. All other Xfce related projects outsource the permissions of the Xfce hub.. Now wait patently.. If it takes too long, leave a message on the translation mailing list.. Once this has all happened, you should have permission to submit and update translations in your language.. You can find more information about this below.. Don't forget to keep in touch with the other translators in your language (you can find them in the translation groups) to coordinate the translation work!.. If you think anything went wrong, ideas? Don't hesitate and send an  ...   get a response in the upcoming weeks (2~3 weeks) you can consider translating the different projects.. Other than getting in touch with current translators, you can use a private page to share progress on translations.. The defacto place is on.. wiki.. xfce.. org.. , but you can also use alternative possibilities like the.. Google Groups.. Team Coordinator.. Transifex allows you to manage a team with a list of translators and coordinators.. Usually you will find one coordinator per team who is allowed to perform the following tasks:.. Accept or deny new translators in the team.. Accept or deny a translation review.. The coordinator should not accept new translators without having a little history of their involvement in other projects.. If it is unsure if a new member has deep knowledge of translations or not, it is possible to check the new Transifex account and start a short discussion per email.. At this point the coordinator can either accept the new member who will be allowed to commit changes directly in our repositories, otherwise the coordinator can ask the new member to submit the work for review.. This process is important whenever the translations have to use a standard vocabulary for instance.. A good practice for the coordinator is to check the translations before a new release, that consists into compiling each Xfce component with the latest translations and making sure everything is in good shape..

  • Title: Xfce 4.10 tour - Xfce
    Descriptive info: 10 tour.. This tour will introduce you to new major features of Xfce 4.. It only covers the visual part of what has been done; for the full list of changes, see the.. changelogs.. Online Documentation.. During the 4.. 10 development we've decided to remove user manuals from the packages and move them to an online wiki at.. docs.. The reason for this change is to make.. contributing.. and updating the documentation easier.. When you click a Help button Xfce will ask you to go to an online wiki page.. We hope that with the introduction of the wiki it will be easier for developers and contributors to maintain the documentation.. Collapsed view of the Application Finder.. The application finder has been completely rewritten and combines the functionality of the old appfinder and xfrun4.. Apart from user interface improvements, it now allows creating custom actions matching a prefix or a regex pattern.. Expanded view of the Application Finder.. Multiple Rows.. In 4.. 10 there is a single panel-wide option for configuring the number of rows in the panel.. Some plugins (e.. g.. launchers.. ) fit a single row, while others, like window buttons are allowed to occupy full width of the panel.. A horizontal panel with a number of rows set to three.. Deskbar Mode.. The panel features a new configuration called a.. deskbar.. mode.. In the deskbar mode the panel is aligned vertically, just like in the vertical mode, but the plugins are laid out horizontally.. With multiple rows, it allows creating wide vertical panels suitable for wide-screen setups.. A panel in Deskbar mode with a number of rows set to five.. Actions Plugin.. Session plugin from the xfce4-session package has been merged with a rewritten.. actions.. plugin.. Action plugin in a menu mode (left), and in a button mode (right).. Window Buttons.. The.. window buttons.. plugin no longer expands, which makes the plugin positioning more flexible.. In order to restore the previous behavior please add a transparent.. separator.. plugin with the.. Expand.. option enabled just behind the window buttons plugin.. There are few visual changes in this release of Thunar.. The window has less padding and the position of the status bar has been adjusted.. session manager.. s settings dialog has a button for clearing  ...   The settings manager with icons grouped by category and a search filter applied.. Settings Editor.. settings editor.. no longer collapses the entire tree when you edit a property (this is because it now reloads a single cell rather than the whole tree).. Most properties can now be edited in-place, making it easier to quickly adjust settings.. Using settings editor you can also monitor changes of settings in a selected channel.. Right-click on a channel in the main window, and select.. Monitor.. to display the monitor window.. Settings editor with an open channel monitor, while editing a property in-place.. MIME Type Editor.. In the last couple of years, many people were asking for a tool to manage their file type associations.. MIME type editor.. does just that.. It allows you to easily assign a default application to a file type, see your changes and reset them to default settings when necessary.. Note that it does not allow you to change the system MIME Type definitions (add or remove types and change icons).. MIME types matching a pattern and a menu for selecting a default application.. Mouse and Touchpad.. mouse and touchpad.. dialog is capable of handling basic Synaptics and Wacom properties in the GUI.. A settings daemon running in the background handles all kinds of device properties, as documented in the.. mouse settings.. Synaptics touchpad settings in the.. dialog.. Appearance Settings.. 10 you can drag and drop a tarball with a downloaded theme onto the.. style.. or.. icon.. list.. Xfce will attempt to extract and install the files into the.. ~/.. themes.. icons.. directory.. Although the initial plan for Xfce 4.. 10 was to integrate desktop handling in Thunar, we have decided not to do it at this time yet.. Meanwhile, Xfdesktop has gained support for single-click operation, automated background image cycling and thumbnail rendering.. Desktop with image thumbnails and support for single-click operation.. Xfdesktop is now shipped with a new default background image.. Xfwm4 can now tile a window when you drag it to the edge of the screen.. This feature is optional and is disabled by default.. In such a case windows can still be tiled using a keyboard shortcut.. Another improvement is a better theming support and cursor key navigation in the tab window (Alt+Tab)..

  • Title: News - Xfce
    Descriptive info: News.. In the 4.. 10 cycle we mainly focused on polishing the desktop and improving the user experience in various ways.. Highlights of this release are:.. A new application finder that has been completely rewritten and combines the functionality of the old xfce4-appfinder and xfrun4.. The panel now has an alternative vertical display mode (a deskbar).. What is more, panel plugins can be arranged in multiple rows, which is particularly useful in the deskbar mode..
