Install Xfce4 goodies in LinuxMint13xfce via synaptic

Recently I have installed LinuxMint13xfce in my friends pc. I choose LinuxMint13xfce for his older machine. If installed successfully and everything is working fine without any further download. Mp3, mpeg and other media files are playing without any update or download. I and my friend both are really happy with LinuxMint13xfce. Now I am going to install "Xfce4-goodies" for some extra plugins. I like to place them in the upper panel. Oh, yes there is no any top panel by default. I have created it just minutes ago.

This is a metapackage to ease upgrades, installations, and provide a
consistent upgrade path from previous versions. It can safely be removed with
no ill effects.

I think an advance user can not live without these important plugin running in his/ her panel. By the way, you can download and use 'xfce4 goodies' in Xubuntu os too.
