  • ruby interpreter
  • “fat tarball” of desired Xfce version


This is the core of the installer.

svn co http://svn.xfce.org/svn/xfce/installit/branches/installer-single-file installit
cd installit
sudo make install
cd ..

Xfce Config

svn co http://svn.xfce.org/svn/xfce/xfce-installers/trunk/xfce44 xfce44-installer
cd xfce44-installer

Update the version number and whatever else you want in xfce44.xml, the configuration file for the installer.

Xfce Components

mkdir release
cd release

Acquire a fat tarball and place it here.

tar -xjf xfce-*-src.tar.bz2

That'll create a xfce-…/src directory containing a bunch of .tar.bz2's. Extract each of those and move the resulting subdirectory up to the current working directory, truncating the version number from its name. (I have a script to automate this. -ongardie)

cd .. #back to xfce44-installer

Build It

./xfce4-*-installer.run --check
