Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Noise doesn't seem to have this problem. If I am right, by default those children (tool-items) inherit the parent's color (toolbar?) in the gtk theme; so, I think that's the problem, but I am not sure.
Here is a temporal solution (Put it into [.theme]/elementary/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css):

GtkToolItem { color: @text_color; }

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Which theme do you use? smile I'm finding some dark theme but Numix and "gtk-theme-winter-mint" don't look like they should. I'm using Evolve now but with all themes I have same problem that the super-wingpanel is not transparent. I'm using super-wingpanel instead of wingpanel because wingpanel doesn't run.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

I use the elementary gtk theme,
It looks like this (It's a modified version):
16m905g_th.png

if you look into "granite-widgets.css" (../Numix/gtk-3.0/[apps]/granite-widgets.css), you'll find a ".panel" class. I think that the only thing you have to do is to set the "background" to "transparent." wink

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

@Alucryd

I read about the Elementary OS devs taking over the development of Shotwell: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2014/01/elem … evelopment

The idea is to fork it and continue development as Pantheon Photos. Thus my question, will you add a separate pantheon-photos package to the repos or will it rather replace the existing shotwell package which by then will no longer be updated?

As long as yorba continues to update shotwell, there will be 2 packages.

BTW, Pantheon projects are progressively switching to gee-0.8 (our libgee package) instead of gee-1.0 (our libgee06). Yes, gee-0.8 is actually newer than gee-1.0. Granite with gee-0.8 is not yet in trunk though, I'm waiting for this to update all packages.

Does anyone have working package indicator-appmenu? I would like to try wingpanel-featured with globalmenu and it requires indicator-appmenu.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Alright, i'm trying to run pantheon.  I followed the wiki and used the unofficial repository.  With slim (using xsession files), plank loads but the background does not set, the panel does not show, and the cursor does not show.  If i use lightdm, i get a black screen and have to kill X.  Does anyone know why i can't start a session?

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

I have the same error too. I guess there is something wrong with the xserver start script. Gala is not launching when x server starts and wingpanel is also not launching. If you have knowledge, can you try to modify it. I dont know much

I also am having the same issue.  I had read somewhere that it was a problem with AMD proprietary graphics drivers, but this appears not to be the case.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

are you using 64 bit?  maybe the unofficial repository is built for 32 bit.  I tried compiling from yaourt first but i got an error and the repo seemed easier and quicker.

Thanks but sorry, I'm still working on it. I don't know how to fix the strange look wingpanel gets (The colour of the items of wingpanel's sidebar).

I'm also using  nvidia propietary drivers on a 64-bit dell notebook, and it works 'fine'.
I used the repository to install all the packages, but "pantheon-session-bzr;" I installed this one from AUR "[installed: 61-1]."

I tried to run lightdm (pantheon greeter [bzr]) on test-mode, and I got these errors:

(lightdm-pantheon-greeter:22379): GModule-CRITICAL **: g_module_close: assertion 'module->ref_count > 0' failed

** (lightdm-pantheon-greeter:22379): ERROR **: PantheonGreeter.vala:250: Clutter could not be intiailized

It used to "work." I mean, at least, I could get a black screen but now it just closes after throwing these errors.

The pantheon greeter is still not functional, it starts here but it won't pick keyboard or mouse input. Apparently it needs lightdm running as root, but that's not gonna happen. Also, careful with lightdm's test mode, it corrupts my dconf settings every time I launch it and I have to 'rm -rf ~/.config/dconf'. I still haven't gotten around filing a bug report about that, but feel free to do that on Launchpad and report your findings.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

i couldn't get lightdm to run with pantheon greeter, i made it work with gtk greeter. With pantheon set as the greeter light dm crashed for me.  I got clutter errors also.

Also... I built pantheon-session-bzr from aur and the desktop starts but without the panel.  I'll try to build wingpanel from aur vs the repo but i have to get ready for work now.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

I've updated all my bzr packages pkgver to start with an r, this will be the official guideline in the new VCS proto fro the next pacman release.

Therefore, I've rebuilt packages on my repo,but not all since the move to gee-0.8 is still incomplete... patches have been lying around in separate branches for several days but still no merge in sight, see progress here https://bugs.launchpad.net/granite/+bug/1270091. Anyway, pacman will complain that your installed packages are more recent than those on the repo, you'll have to update them manually (I don't want to introduce an epoch for that).

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

I just installed Pantheon, following the instructions on the wiki. However, when I execute startx, I can only see Plank, and a black background. Is there a fix for this?

I just tried the latest with Gnome default themes installed and now I see Applications up in the upper left corner, but no mouse and now Plank is not visible.  Screen is completely empty except the upper bar.

You need contractor or contractor-bzr, and have file-roller installed. There will be an "Extract here" option in the menu.

Thanks and resolved! smile

I will add this information to the wiki.

Another minor thing. Does anyone know how I can make Pantheon Files use dark icons instead of white?

I don't know how to solve the icons color, that's probably worth filing a bug report upstream. At least, using Numix, the home icon is black, the 3 view icons are white though (they are properly black in noise, so pantheon-files is most likely at fault here).
