Re: Progress on Unity under Arch Linux!

Hi chenxiaolong!

I'm trying to compile the gtk2-ubuntu package with your PKGBUILDs and I get the error:

I'd really like to get Unity working on something besides Ubuntu, but I'm quite new to Arch.

Thanks for any help!

Hi aabmass!

Welcome to Arch! big_smile The reason that error message occurs is because when Ubuntu uploads a new version of a package, they delete all the previous versions. I've updated the PKGBUILD, so it should all be good now smile

It should be fixed now smile I've downgraded the GTK 3 package to Ubuntu 11.10's version, which is the same major version as Arch Linux's - v3.2.0 vs v3.2.2. It should work just fine.

Looking at some packages, there will probably be more packages that are going to fail sad Ubuntu just updated some of the Gnome packages in 12.04 to development version 3.3, but I don't want to have people upgrade to unstable versions of packages.

You're right, I had the same problem with a few packages but I managed to fix the pkgbuilds on my own smile

However, I'm getting an error when building 'indicator-multiload:'

/usr/bin/ld: note: 'round@@GLIBC_2.2.5' is defined in DSO /lib/libm.so.6 so try adding it to the linker command line

I'm guessing that this package is not entirely essential, so I'm going to go on building the other packages.

Fixed smile I actually saw this error in the comments for other AUR packages. It seems the latest update to binutils broke something...

Thanks! indicator-multiload (and everything else) compiled fine for me! I'm now using unity in arch, it's working well! I'll post back here if I find any problems.

Awesome! If you want a more make your desktop look identical to Ubuntu 11.10, here are links to the Ubuntu theme and LightDM big_smile

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=35237 #Icon theme
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=35238 #Ambiance and Radiance themes
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=53329 #LightDM
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=52877 #LightDM Unity Greeter/Theme

EDIT: Oh yeah, if anyone has any ideas for a monochrome Arch Linux icon, please post it here! I think it would fit better in the Unity launcher smile

It is mostly integrated. GTK 2.0, GTK 3.0, and QT 4 are all patched along with Compiz and Gnome packages (for global appmenus, etc). However, certain things still aren't integrated. Firefox doesn't integrate with the global menu as I'm not very familiar with the Firefox build system. Also, the "updates" menu entry in the shutdown menu doesn't do anything because I haven't patched Unity to use pacman instead of apt/dpkg.

Other than that, the experience should be pretty much identical to that of Ubuntu (well, in addition to all the benefits of using Arch big_smile)

Re: Progress on Unity under Arch Linux!

So, I'm testing this for the first time and at the time it's compiling Qt but I wanted to make notice that gconf-ubuntu encountered a problem cause the file was not found so I used the next version available, I hope there's no big deal with that.

Assuming you updated with the source 'http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/m … ian.tar.gz' and fixed the 'sha512sums,' then everything should be fine smile Anyway, I've updated the PKGBUILD in the git repo.

The gconf-ubuntu package isn't that important, but if it's not patched and installed correctly, you'll log in and see a blank screen when you choose Unity in the login manager. As long that this command returns something:

grep debian /etc/gconf/2/path

and '/var/lib/gconf/defaults' contains files, then everything should work tongue
