libxfce4ui - widget sharing library

The libxfce4ui library is used to share commonly used Xfce widgets among the Xfce applications.

Required packages

Libxfce4ui depends on the following packages:

  • GTK+ 3.18.0 or above
  • GLib 2.42.0 or above
  • Libxfce4util 4.12.0 or above

Debugging Support

Libxfce4ui currently supports four different levels of debugging support, which can be setup using the configure flag `–enable-debug' (check the output of `configure –help'):

`full'	Use this if you want to debug libxfce4ui to locate a bug. The
		build will most probably be noticably slower. This is also
	recommended for people that want to develop Xfce applications.
`yes'		This is the default for SVN snapshot builds. It adds all
		kinds of checks to the code, and is therefore likely to run
	slower. Use this if you want to develop for Xfce.
`minimum'	This is the default for release builds, and presents the
		recommended behaviour.
`no'		Disables all sanity checks. Don't use this unless you know
		exactly what you do.
