Source: xfce4-power-manager
Version: 1.4.0-2
Severity: important
Control: affects -1 lxpanel

The upstream package xfce4-power-manager contains plugin for lxpanel
which seriously affects usability of lxpanel (it's why this Severity) but
xfce4-power-manager misses it packaged. This is pretty much simple to fix:

1) add two packages to Build-Depends: lxpanel (>= 0.7.1), libfm-dev
2) add a binary package xfce4-power-manager-lxpanel-plugin into debian/control file
3) create debian/xfce4-power-manager-lxpanel-plugin.install with contents:


4) change in debian/xfce4-power-manager-plugins.install:




(plugins should be in different packages due to lxpanel linking with libfm.so.4
which obviously should be not in Depends for Xfce4-related package)
5) DEB_LDFLAGS_MAINT_APPEND in debian/rules a bit conflicts with lxpanel since
flags -Wl,-z,defs aren't appropriate for plugins linked to executable, only for
linked to library but lxpanel isn't a library.
