ok ive uploaded a new task-xfce ... should fix this issue now ... not sure why yours is showing that you have broken packages unless you are missing the xfce4 in your sections ... then it would try and install the lesser version for xfce4.6 ... gonna do this in VM and see if i get this issue ...
Well, it must have been the bacon.
Neal's fix worked. I uninstalled and re-installed the broken packages and all is well.
Wait, wait, wait. xfce4 in sections? I did not do this. My sincere apologies. I need to add this line "xfce4" at the end of the sections line listed in the repo being used, correct?
I'll check now. However, Synpatic is not launching in xfce. It tells me I need to be root user. No password dialog comes up.
I jumped back into KDE and the same thing. Synaptic not launching. Rebooted just now...
Okay, Synpatic launching...
Repository for heanet reads:
Sections: main updates nonfree kde4 games xfce4
I just checked and this is true for both laptop and desktop. I'll need to double check my notebook.
So, apparently, I did not err because PCLinuxOS made sure packages were pulled from xfce4.
If I'm incorrect, someone please signify by taking away my plate of bacon.
