Did you follow the rest of the instructions for xfce 4.6 in UPDATING? There are a few ports to deinstall, preferably before upgrading. A little problem with that: after having the ports tree updated I could not simply "make deinstall" them, as the old port directories were no longer present. I could use stg like pkg_delete, but in the end, I preferred using pkg_rmleaves and remove the entire xfce4.4 related ports (including the libs, mousepad, Thunar and a few add-ons) and just installed 4.6 afterwards. It all works fine. The following is a list of the xfce related ports (minus some extra add-ons) in my system. Check whether you are missing something: Thunar-1.0.0 XFce 4 file manager gtk-xfce-engine-2.4.3 An XFCE engine for GTK 2.0 libexo-0.3.100 Terminal library, extensions to Xfce by os-cillation libxfce4gui-4.6.0 XFce 4 widget library required by xfce4 and xfwm4 libxfce4menu-4.6.0 XFce 4 library for a freedesktop.org compliant menu impleme libxfce4util-4.6.0 XFce 4 library with non-graphical helper functions mousepad-0.2.16 Simple xfce editor orage-4.6.0 A calendar application to manage your time with XFce 4 xfce-4.6.0 The "meta-port" for the XFce 4 desktop environment xfce4-appfinder-4.6.0 Find application in the system supporting Desktop entry for xfce4-conf-4.6.0 XFce 4 configuration mananger xfce4-desktop-4.6.0_1 XFce 4 desktop background manager and root menu xfce4-mixer-4.6.0 XFce 4 volume mixer module for xfce4-panel xfce4-panel-4.6.0 XFce 4 panel module xfce4-print-4.6.0 XFce 4 graphical frontend for printing xfce4-session-4.6.0 Session manager for the Xfce 4 desktop environment xfce4-settings-4.6.0 XFce 4 settings application xfce4-utils-4.6.0 XFce 4 essential utilities and scripts xfce4-wm-4.6.0 XFce 4 window manager xfce4-wm-themes-4.6.0 XFce 4 window decoration themes for xfwm4 _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
