Why do I keep getting this error when I try installing this with XFCE? I already have topmenu-gtk-git installed as well. What am I doing wrong?

    configure: error: in `/home/cinder/.cache/yay/xfce4-topmenu-plugin-git/src/topmenu-gtk':
    configure: error: --enable-xfce-applet was given, but test for libxfce4panel failed
    See `config.log' for more details
    ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
    error making: xfce4-topmenu-plugin-git

Please add provides=("xfce4-topmenu-plugin=${pkgver}").

Thanks for maintaining!

You need to define the GTK_MODULES environment variable to make the plugin work with gtk2 apps. For example, in my ~/.xprofile file I have the following lines

if [[ -z $GTK_MODULES ]]; then

The plugin work with qt4 apps (but not qt5) if you install the topmenu-qt package.

I just installed it and put the plugin in the panel but,... .
When I opened window, the menu still in the same place, nothing different. Plugin still blank. I tried with smplayer, krita, inkscape, synfigstudio.

The author page is saying the following - I take that that's exactly what you're seeing:

Please note that there is a known crash with Gtk+>=3.20, which I don't know how to fix. I don't have time to follow all of Gtk+ 3 changes.

Just wanted to let you guys know, I contacted the author about this issue and am still waiting to hear from him.

Out of curiosity, is anyone else experiencing problems with xfce-temrinal / transmission / gtk3 apps? Just so I rule out a global bug and know it's probably my configuration or system?

gborzi commented on 2016-11-21 00:22

It's an upstream bug, I don't know any fix.

for gtk2 apps topmenu is working fine for me. however gtk3 apps (in this case) xfce4-terminal crash when I click on any menu item. dmesg shows:

I contacted the upstream author about the SSL problem, but no answer until now. In the meantime you can deactivate git SSL check with
"git config --global http.sslVerify false"
