I installed slingshot-launcher_0.0.1~pre-0~48~natty1_i386 and everything works though it is a little slow. When I run slingshot from terminal I get the next two errors:

  1. (slingshot:1562): Critical : slingshot_frontend_indicators_set_active: assertion 'self != NULL' failed

  2. (slingshot:1562): Gtk-CRITICAL : IA_gtk_style_detach: assertion 'style->attach_count > 0' failed

I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix these errors or if there is a way to get a newer version of slingshot running on Xubuntu 12.04 with Xfce 4.10.

The package is for Natty (Ubuntu 11.04), and you have Xubuntu 12.04. I guess that it is not compatible. Have you tried to install with the instructions of this answer? –  Lucio Jan 20 '13 at 0:12
I did but it didn't work so I had to download the .deb –  user94128 Jan 20 '13 at 0:52
Have you tried yo install it from source? Do you need some help with that? –  Lucio Jan 20 '13 at 1:00
No I haven't tried installing it from source, do you know if a newer version of slingshot would work on 12.04 if compiled from source (I know how to compile from source just never considered it) –  user94128 Jan 20 '13 at 1:01
I really don't know, but you should try. I must tell you that you have to remove it completely before the reinstallation. Don't forget to tell us your results! –  Lucio Jan 20 '13 at 1:09
