A New Xfce Utility

A new utility has been made available for Xfce in Fedora. It is xfpanel-switch and has been packaged by nonamedotc who you may recognise as a busy contributor of Xfce on Fedora. His past efforts have certainly added to my enjoyment of running Xfce on Korora.

xfpanel-switch is a simple utility that can back up and restore your panel configuration. It includes a couple of different configs you can try out but use its backup option to backup your set up first. There are full details about it here.

I’ve been testing it for couple of days and it works well for me. It will be included in future versions of Korora Xfce but if you want to try it on 23 it is currently in updates-testing. You can install it with ‘sudo dnf –enablerepo=updates-testing install xfpanel-switch’.
