library..from hell?

Post by Master of Reality »

Does anyone know what libstartup-notification.so is from?
xfce-panel needs it and i cant use xfce on my laptop without it.

Now i just realized im using xfce on my main machine, but a locate libstartup-notification finds nothing. A search on google revealed no info to me either.

Its the xfree86 log that says that its missing. xfce gives an error that the panel crashed and keeps trying to restart it.

EDIT: it isnt the xfree86.log.. its just the first terminal on screen that shows the error.

It is an optional depandancy so you could safely ignore it, but it is provided by the following tgz should you want it:

ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/s ... i486-2.tgz

It is also on the 2nd CD in slackware/gnome/

oh. i thought we were still on the issue of how this thing could be optional when it is actually required.
