xfce4-places-plugin 1.8.3

Gnome-like Places menu for the Xfce panel

This plugin provides a menu with quick access to folders, documents, and removable media. The places plugin brings much of the functionality of GNOME's Places menu to Xfce.

The plugin puts a simple button on the panel. Clicking on this button opens up a menu with the following:

  • System-defined directories (home folder, trash, desktop, file system)

  • Removable media (using thunar-vfs)

  • User-defined bookmarks (reads ~/.gtk-bookmarks)

  • Search program launcher (optional)

  • Recent documents submenu


Install xfce4-places-plugin 1.8.3 as follows:

guix install xfce4-places-plugin@1.8.3

Or install the latest version:

guix install xfce4-places-plugin

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
