Hi everyone, I have submitted a diff to add a meta-port for XFCE Goodies for review here: https://reviews.freebsd.org/D6981
The basic goal of this port is to prevent people installing Xfce and then experiencing the following: - Discover they are missing some functionality - Google / Freshport search for the associated port - Install the port - A few days later, discover more missing functionality, etc I find on XFCE, there are a number of ports that need to be install before you get everything you want. However, given that many of them are panel plugins or application, they don't bog down the system unless you actually add them to the panel or run them. I also find it is hard to discover what other functionality / plugins might be available that I don't even realise I am missing. This is especially true on FreeBSD because the plugins are in different categories in the ports tree, meaning that just because I find the x11/xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin doesn't mean I am aware that the x11-clocks/xfce4-datetime-plugin exists. The solution on a number of Linux distros is to provide a xfce-goodies meta-port which installs the main applications, panel plugins, thunar plugins and artwork that can be found here: http://goodies.xfce.org/ In my proposal, I have also included a few additional ports which are not technically part of the Goodies project, but are highly recommended for use on an Xfce desktop, and may be hard to discover otherwise. For example, until I created this meta-port, I didn't even realise the sysutils/xfce4-bsdcpufreq-plugin port existed. If you get a chance, please have a look at the review and provide comments.
