New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

new lxde packages

Post#1 by ponce » 13 Aug 2011, 07:56

hi fellas! I prepared some up-to-date lxde slackware packages following last days releases from upstream.

http://ponce.cc/slackware/slackware-13.37/lxde/
http://ponce.cc/slackware/slackware64-13.37/lxde/

there's still work going on libfm and pcmanfm, but the versions I built should be perfectly usable. :)
hope they can be useful. ;)

notice that a new empty file is created, /etc/udev/rules.d/99-udisks-ntfs3g.rules.
this really shouldn't be empty :%) , but maybe it's better this way :roll: so you can choose :)
if you want to force your desktop environment to automount your external ntfs drives and memories using the fuse ntfs-3g driver instead of the kernel one (preferred here), fill that file with this content

Code: Select all

ENV{ID_FS_TYPE}=="ntfs", ENV{ID_FS_TYPE}="ntfs-3g"
enjoy! :crazy:

thanks a lot ponce :)
few days ago i tried to compile latest stable LXDE myself and had some minor troubles. will check your packages and let you know about any issues i find (after my compilation i know where to look for them).
consider also this Robby alternative hint.
this symlink exists in Porteus already :wink:

Cheers

ups, I forgot :fool:

as usual you can find all the build scripts on my slackbuilds.org's fork (available also in sbopkg, thanks to slakmagik ;) ).

nice - ty :)

latest LXDE works good so far - the only problem which persisted from previous release is with xarchiver which segfaults while extracting tar archives (.tar without compression).
xarchiver compiled by me does not have this problem. i have no idea what's causing this but can upload slackbuild + binary if you want to test it on your PC.

@ponce

ok i know the reason now....
what's more important: support for unpacking of .txz (they should be installed not unpacked) or .tar (tar archives without compression are rare i guess)?

EDIT:\\
Just to let you know:
- i have fixed lxapperance segfault (which occurs after switching gtk theme) by upgrading it to latest version from your repo:
http://ponce.cc/slackware/sources/repo/ ... ad6.tar.xz
i'll also give a try to stable version later on:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/lxde/fi ... z/download
- pcmanfm in 0.9.9 stable version segfaults while unmounting removable media - probably udisk related issue. had to downgrade it (plus libfm) to commit from 20110422 as i want to remove hal from 64bit edition in next release and everything must rely on udisk.

All seems to be working perfectly now. except xarchiver :wink:

updated stuff on slackbuilds.org and even more fixes in the repository for -current (usable with sbopkg too).
in the first days of 2012 will come updated packages :)

in the meantime, best wishes of happy ending and new beginning :beer:

new lxde (fixed right-click pcmanfm crash and lxappearance segfault :Yahoo!: ), qt-desktop :shock: and various other packages fresh built on stable slackwares. :crazy:

as usual, you can build whatever you like of this stuff yourself with sbopkg using my git repository and a queue: I use this, but you can shorten it as you like ;).

hi ponce,

just tried your fresh packages and there is one old bug with pcmanfm crash when unmounting removable media.
do you also experience this in Slackware or it's rather Porteus thing?

(because of this bug i'm still using pcmanfm-20110422_3f899d1 and libfm-20110422_30d03d2)

all ok here on slackware64-current: if I have, as to say, /media/ntfs opened in pcmanfm and I eject the ntfs volume, the windows closes normally, but stays open if I am in another folder, with no crash.
I have no other report of this behaviour.

dunno if can help, but you can force debug adding -g to the SLKCFLAGS in the slackbuild and doing a make install (instead of make install-strip).

if you installed the packages directly, maybe is just a matter of trying a rebuild on porteus: everything, as usual, is built on a fresh-installed full slackware system with the queue linked, but if you have a development environment ready (don't know if you updated something like latest glibc in /patches), just save this (delete what you don't need) as /var/lib/sbopkg/queues/lxde.sqf

Code: Select all

libatasmart
sg3_utils
udisks
upower
leafpad
xarchiver | BEND_ME_OVER=kthxbai
openbox
xmms2
gpicview
lxappearance
lxappearance-obconf
lxde-common
lxrandr
lxterminal
menu-cache
lxmenu-data
lxlauncher
lxpanel
lxpanel-xmms2
lxtask
lxpolkit
lxsession
lxsession-edit
gvfs
libfm
pcmanfm
lxshortcut
lxinput
lxmusic
lxdm
and run

Code: Select all

sbopkg -i lxde

Once again, thanks Ponce. Will get stuck into this for the rc2 release.
