When I ran it I check the list of modules and one I seen missing was gnome-keyring.

To start with there are no icon's at all they are missing. What could be missing to do that?

I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

you need to run update-cache and merge the caches module (in /tmp) with your lxde module.
i see you have openbox in the list > you don't need it, it's already in 002-gui

When I boot up and if I try text mode it just boots in to the Desktop. I will try again.

I retry and now I have icon's. I am using right now.

I will work on putting all my modules in to 003-lxde.xzm and update when base modules gets updated.

i'll put my suggestions for your module (received via pm) here: (hope you don't mind)
seems to be mostly in order, well done (:

packages not needed:
openbox (is in 002-gui)
lxdm (not used and won't work)
cantarell-fonts (the fonts in 002-gui are enough)
adwaita-icon-theme (looks like you've removed it anyway)
colord (not really needed)

packages missing:
gtk-engine-murrine (needed for -menta themes)
(possibly)gtk-engines (for the other themes: clearlooks etc)

optional:
gvfs
udisks2 don't appear to be necessary for basic mounting/unmounting of usbs etc.
(might be needed if you want trash support and/or mounting network shares)

other things to strip:
/usr/share/help/*
/usr/share/licences/*
/usr/share/locale/*
/usr/share/gir-1.0/*
/usr/bin/gtk3-demo
/usr/bin/gtk3-widget-factory
/usr/share/applications/gtk3-demo.desktop
/usr/share/applications/gtk3-widget-factory.desktop
/usr/lib/systemd

other notes:
file association for .xzm(activate/deactive) not showing in pcmanfm

here's some update/strip scripts, they should be placed in and run from the same directory as the extracted 003-lxde module.

this one get's the update list, the second part should be done manually with commands supplied in the lower half of the script
uplxde.sh

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
# Get a list of updates for lxde module
# Must be run as root in the same directory as the extracted module($PWD)
PATH1=$PWD/003-lxde
OUT1=$PWD/lx
OUT2=$PWD/upall
OUT3=$PWD/uplx

## Copy ALPM_DB_VERSION
cp -au /var/lib/pacman/local/ALPM_DB_VERSION $PATH1/var/lib/pacman/local/

## Get list of all packages in lxde
pacman -Qqr $PATH1 | awk '{print $1}' > $OUT1

## Get list of upgradable packages in column
pacman -Qqu | awk '{print $1}' > $OUT2
sleep 5

## Compare module to find upgrades   
comm -12 $OUT2 $OUT1 > $OUT3

## Script ends!
## The following commands are to be done manually in a terminal(as root) (copy and paste!)
## adjust the paths to suit($PWD should work)

## 1. Make sure the cache is clean
#pacman -Scc

## 2. Download the packages to cache without dependency checking 
#pacman -Sddw `cat $PWD/uplx`

## 3. Install the packages to the extracted module
#pacman -Uddr $PWD/003-lxde /var/cache/pacman/pkg/*.pkg.tar.xz

## 4. Run the strip script (and check after to see that worked) 
#sh lxstrip.sh

## 5. Make the module
#dir2xzm 003-lxde 003-lxde-$(date +%Y%m%d).xzm

## 6.Clean the cache before updating any other modules 
#pacman -Scc
lxstrip.sh:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
## Script to export and remove unneeded files from 003-lxde
PATH1=$PWD/003-lxde
PATH2=$PWD/dev

## Some of this stuff could useful to someone

@ncmprhnsbl,

Have you look at my Lxde build yet? I been using it for about a week now. It has problem that I want to get fixed but it is workable like it is.

There is some program that is in 001 and 002 that show up in my build menu that don't work.

If you try it what did you think?

Jack

UPDATE:

I didn't see both message sorry, but I will work on what needs fixed. I glad you look and you are going to help me fixed it.

fairly sure udisks and gvfs don't need all of that, could be related to out of date packages in core..(and the unpackaged cryptsetup in kernel)
so :

Code: Select all

pacman -Sddw udisks gvfs
the 'dd' means disable all dependency checking

When I downloaded gvfs, udisks2 and gtk-engines it didn't put them here /var/cache/pacman/pkg it turn them into an xzm.

So I did this xzm2dir /path/to/*.xzm 003-lxde.

Then I check /var/lib/pacman/local for them but they were not there.

I did this before and I know it works below.

looks like it should work, are you getting output after this command? showing the unsquashfs process?
try extracting one of these to an empty folder and see what's in it..

Are you getting output after this command? YES

Showing the unsquashfs process?

Try extracting one of these to an empty folder and see what's in it. It looks like it install ok. It just don't have anything inside this /var/lib/pacman/local.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.
