[Solved...] Yet another GIMP alternative...

Post#1 by n0ctilucient » 04 Mar 2018, 15:24

Rendera is an ultra lightweight FLTK based Gimp alternative
(w/o slow bloated unsecure Gtk/Qt dependency)...

Site is @... https://rendera.sourceforge.net/
Source is @... https://github.com/JoeDavisson/rendera/releases

This package has not been adopted yet by ("slackonly" or)...
https://slakfinder.org
https://slackbuilds.org
https://pkgs.org

So far... I have not been able to successfully compile
this package with the following src2pkg conf...
see... Src2pkg.conf w/ "hardened" EXTRA_FLAGS

Thanx... in advance to anyone that is interested in sharing their precompiled package link.

Never heard of that. When not using GIMP I use mtpaint. I downloaded it and give you heads up as soon as I can test it. :)
Currently I am with my Android. :Rose:

https://mega.nz/#!RbxCHLrJ!EAYKPNh3Z-62 ... LgPYxMNfNM and this is version 0.1.0.
Just install it, open a console and type "rendera".

Enjoy!

Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).
The Porteus Community never sleeps!

I just ran it in my LXDE with no problems. I had to start it from LXTerminal by typing redera.
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.

How did you create the module? Its man page should not be in /usr/share/man .
Slackware uses /usr/man .
And then it should not be called "rendera.man" either, the ending usually is a number according to the category it is put in, in this case its path and name should be /usr/man/man1/rendera.1

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/mnt/live/memory/images/rendera-0.2.0.xzm# man rendera
No manual entry for rendera
[...]
root@porteus:/mnt/live/memory/images/rendera-0.2.0.xzm# mv /usr/share/man/rendera.man /usr/man/man1/rendera.1
root@porteus:/mnt/live/memory/images/rendera-0.2.0.xzm# man rendera

RENDERA(1)                  General Commands Manual                 RENDERA(1)

NAME

Cave! In some Porteus enironments, e.g. 4.0rc4 there is usually not a single man page installed, so the above "fix" won't work, you would have to create the folders first via mkdir -p /usr/man/man1/.

HTH!

(I hope the above did not come across as arrogant or similar; I just did not sleep very well last night and my brain feels like its not really awake…)
Cheers!

Now you know how to correctly include a man page into your module.
Cheers :D
