Bug Description

Xfce Panel Switch (xfpanel-switch) is a simple application to manage Xfce panel layouts. This tool makes it possible to backup, restore, import, and export panel layouts.

The Xubuntu team and Xfce developers are trialing this new application in 15.10. We're seeking broad testing as a useful utility for users to be able to backup and restore their panel, or revert to one of the included defaults (Xfce, Classic Xubuntu, Xubuntu Trusty). We also have a patched Xfce Panel that launches the application from the Preferences. This patch is to be upstreamed after more testing and refinement.

The initial testing with our QA team has completed and we have decided to include this for 15.10 if possible. As a new application, Debian Xfce is not yet interested in including this package.

Thanks for usefull tool, but is really reason for depend on >=GTK3.12 and not supporting actual LTS release with GTK3.10 ?

Now in wily release pocket:

@k3dar7: I don't know, but that is what the build configuration complained when I tried to build it on trusty. I didn't try to force it though. Maybe one function or so from 3.12 is used.
