Kooldock needed (a little error on convert)

Post#1 by miguipda » 08 Jul 2012, 09:33


I tried to use Kooldock on Porteus 1.2 64 bits.
I selected it on the (PPM) SBo (in express) from the Slack 12.2.

At build it returned the error that kde-config was not found.

Then when I asked to convert it returned this error :

Code: Select all

./kooldock.SlackBuild: line 56: kde-config: command not found
Could you please have a look to it to give us a usefull docking menu ;-)

Sincerely thanks and have a nice day,

Miguipda ;-)

P.S. : otherwise which docking is available on the Porteus 1.2 64 bits ?

Using any SBo through PPM is experimental and there is no guarantee that it will run. In this example you chose from the 12.2 repo. At that point in time (12.2 slackware) kde-3.5.12 was being used and kde-config existed in this environment. It doesn't exist under KDE4

When using KDE4 you would be best to pull apps only from slackware-13.37 to ensure they are compatible with KDE4.

You could try: ln -s /usr/bin/kde4-config /usr/bin/kde-config

This will certainly get you passed the problem you are having during compile ... but i would bet you will hit another wall further in the compile.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
