Re: Fast User Switch Applet doesnt have restart, log out shutdown etc.

I am not 100% sure as i don't use gnome, but from what i have read ubuntu patches gnome to add those buttons for better usability. May be you can use the same patch with arch. And i think they have added stuff like im status etc there.

offffffffff
i didn't told you to install that package. i told you to take a look at [bold]PKGBUILD[/bold] and see how to do a build for that applet using ubuntu patches

Re: Fast User Switch Applet doesnt have restart, log out shutdown etc.

i installed it by extracting deb file and copying all data files to their places. now ive got ubuntu style, like it shows my user name and quit icon on right, when i click it i have only switch user. though its in ubuntu style because when i click on applet it doesnt show icons

Maybe it's a dumb question but why don't they submit these patches upstream?

because they are ubuntu

edit: or, upstream just doesn't like the patch

Re: Fast User Switch Applet doesnt have restart, log out shutdown etc.

Is there a discussion of the patch somewhere, maybe on the upstream bugzilla?

Re: Fast User Switch Applet doesnt have restart, log out shutdown etc.

I used the PKGBUILD from antoinemartin and had to comment out "install = fusa.install" but other than that it compiled without any problems.

It still isn't exactly like Ubuntu's though. There's only a "switch user" icon (the arrow pointing downwards) next to the user name. None of the other status icons for Pidgin are available.

Re: Fast User Switch Applet doesnt have restart, log out shutdown etc.

You need the .install file, which can be found here: http://repos.archlinux.org/viewvc.cgi/f … iew=markup

It's a file that tells the package how exactly to install the applet (after compiling and installing the package), adding gconf entries, etc..
