Help Upgrading Whisker Menu plugin(SOLVED)
« on: February 16, 2020, 05:00:28 am »
As seen the picture bellow whisker menu plugin installed is 2.1.5



Current release is at 2.4.2 with new options, how to update/install correctly or it doesn't worth updating for now?

There does not seem to be hardly any difference, but being able to set it up so it is open all the time. I also wonder what the benefit would be to upgrade? Is it written with GTK3 in mind?
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

I like it.  It gives an updated look to the Whisker menu and looks very nice in the dark theme.  The standard light gray looks awful.  Nice find.

hi, sorry for late reply, i used this

Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gottcode/gcppa

then:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update

and last:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin

or after doing the first step  go into the updates manager and refresh whisker menu plugin should appear to update, i only installed that and then removed the repository.

I dindt tried but i think if you go here and download the .deb package correspondent to Ubunto would work also:
https://software.opensuse.org/download/package?package=xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin&project=home%3Agottcode

Dam looks very cool .VinDSL
