there are no ebuilds to satisfy libxklavier-5.4

Question

I try to use Xfce as lightweight desktop. But I do not know how to add keyboard layout on Xfce panel. Next error appears when I install xkb-plugin also while world update. Think this is not big trouble, but help to the novice to solve it.

# emerge xfce4-xkb-plugin
Calculating dependencies... done!

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy ">=x11-libs/libxklavier-5.4:=".
(dependency required by "xfce-extra/xfce4-xkb-plugin-0.8.0::desktop-kit" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "xfce4-xkb-plugin" [argument])

I really did not use package.use. I tried so but without any success:

 


# echo '>=xfce-extra/xfce4-xkb-plugin-0.8.0 -libxklavier' >> /etc/portage/packacge.use
# etc-update
Scanning Configuration files...
Exiting: Nothing left to do; exiting. :)
# dispatch-conf
# emerge xfce4-xkb-plugin
Calculating dependencies... done!

Here I've found other versions https://github.com/funtoo/desktop-kit/tree/master/xfce-extra/xfce4-xkb-plugin

This solved my problem:

 

# emerge "=xfce-extra/xfce4-xkb-plugin-0.7.1-r1"

 

But the trouble is that flags are tiny small: https://itmag.es/3AFuL

 

 

Please, can I define in system to use xfce4-xkb-plugin-0.7.1-r1 while world update to be sure xfce4-xkb-plugin will not be broken due to unsatisfied dependencies?

Thanks to Gentoo Wiki page https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Knowledge_Base:Masking_a_package

 

I added to /etc/portage/package.mask this line:

>xfce-extra/xfce4-xkb-plugin-0.7.1-r1

Run this:

etc-update

It updated without any errors. And then I checked:

emerge xfce4-xkb-plugin

and it started to download xfce4-xkb-plugin-0.7.1-r1 without any errors!

 

Now I try to solve the question with flags size. Think it depends on xfce icons set. I have adwaita. Try to get and use other.
