 +
 +===== Requirements =====
 +
 +  * gtk 2.10.0
 +  * libxfce4util 4.4.0
 +  * libxfcegui4 4.4.0
 +  * dbus-glib 0.70
 +  * hal-storage 0.5.7.1
 +  * exo-hal 0.3.2 (compiled with HAL support)
 +  * a running system tray (e.g., systray plugin in xfce4-panel)
 +
 +===== Installation =====
 +
 +To install from source, use the following:
 +
 +<​code>​./​configure --prefix=<​install path>
 +make
 +make install</​code>​
 +
 +Replace ''​configure''​ with ''​autogen.sh''​ if checking the code out of the Subversion repository instead of using a source tarball.
 +
 +===== Usage =====
 +
 +Simply run '​xfce4-volstatus-icon'​ (e.g. from the 'Run Program...'​ dialog). ​ On first use, it will ask you if you want to start it every time Xfce starts. ​ Obviously, it's not too useful if you don't, so I'd suggest you say yes here.  You can later disable it in the '​Autostarted Applications'​ settings panel if you change your mind.
 +
 +Normally, you won't even notice it running. ​ If you plug in a removable drive, the icon will appear in your system tray.  Single-clicking the icon will bring up a dialog box with a list of devices and volumes plugged in, where you can also remove devices. ​ Right-clicking the icon gives you a quick method to eject a particular volume via a popup menu.
 +
 +When there are no removable devices attached, the icon hides itself to save space.
