Re: Progress on Unity under Arch Linux!

Yeah sorry I don't actually mention virtualbox in the post. Just that I am getting the same libgnome-control-center error.  I had to compile that and gnome-settings-daemon first before activity-log-manager. And I had the same problem again last night.

Hmm...could you post the package list of gnome-control-center-ubuntu? The libgnome-control-center library is part of the Ubuntu version of gnome-control-center.

pacman -Ql gnome-control-center-ubuntu

I've also been having a problem with the panel always being on top of full screen programs. I'm sure it will be fixed soon though smile I hope the HUD remains optional too with a setting to completely disable it. It's quite annoying how it pops up whenever I use a shortcut that contains Alt. I don't understand all the hate towards Unity either. I see a lot of people complain that it's a "tablet UI", but to me, it can be controlled with a keyboard better than any other DE. Plus, it integrates well with everything smile

You can change the hud keyboard shortcut in keyboard settings. I made it alt+win because I use alt with the right and left arrow a lot in chromium. Anyways, shuttleworth has said HUD would be much better by 12.10. Hopefully this means mouse-friendly smile

Edit: I was not clear in my post above sorry. activity-log-manager would NOT compile without gnome-control-center-ubuntu and gnome-settings-daemon-ubuntu being installed FIRST.

That's exactly what I use alt for too smile I didn't know that the keyboard shortcut could be changed. Thanks for telling me!

As for the activity-log-manager issue, I have moved it below gnome-control-center-ubuntu in the README and added gnome-control-center-ubuntu to the dependencies smile

EDIT: Is there still an issue with indicator-datetime?

Re: Progress on Unity under Arch Linux!

Hey, I'm back. After using Ubuntu 12.04 for a month or so I'm back to Arch and the first thing I did was install unity again and I noticed that now there are less packages and I'm loving it as always.

Now I have this doubt, Is it posible to do a minimal gnome install to have only unity? What packages should be installed?

Anyways, still surprises me that unity runs more smooth in Arch than in Ubuntu itself.

Welcome back! A lot of packages now work with the upstream versions and some packages have been added to the repositories. I can't wait until the day where this project has 0 packages big_smile

I'm not sure about sure about the minimal install, but this is what I would choose:

(when running "pacman -S gnome")

gnome-control-center
gnome-desktop
gnome-icon-theme
gnome-keyring
gnome-screensaver
gnome-session
gnome-settings-daemon
gnome-terminal
gnome-themes-standard
nautilus
notification-daemon

Could you try removing the pkg/ and src/ directories and then recompiling? From the build logs, it seems that CMake is detecting a previous build.

As for the Update script issue, sorry about that. I'll fix it as soon as I can smile

Thank you so much! Removing those folders did it. smile
Unity is running perfectly. I'm just having a issue with the themes. Adwaiata looks just fine, but when I change to another theme the contrast doesn't look normal. Here is some screenshots:

Adwaiata theme
http://postimage.org/image/pdubtnnkr/

Mint theme (also happens with any other theme)
http://postimage.org/image/4fsr9bd3v/

Am I the only one having this issue? Does anyone have any idea?

You're welcome!

It seems that the themes that are broken haven't been updated for GNOME 3.4 yet. For example, if you use the Mint theme, and then try to run a GTK 3 program from the terminal, like "gnome-control-center", you will see a lot of:

...
Theme parsing error: unity.css:8:16: Not using units is deprecated. Assuming 'px'.
...

If you use a GNOME 3.4 theme, like Adwaita, Zukini, or Holo, that doesn't happen. Hopefully, it will be fixed soon smile

By the way, the update script should work now big_smile

Re: Progress on Unity under Arch Linux!

Hi, I finished compiling and installing Unity from your git repository, Unity runs as expected, except that the gtk theme isn't applied (it's the ugly default one with square edges...). and  when I try to change the theme via the menu nothing happens.

I thought this has something to do with gnome-settings-daemon, so I tried to check if it's running

~ $ killall gnome-settings-daemon
gnome-settings-daemon: no process found

so it isn't running, and when I tried to run it I get this

 ~ $ gnome-settings-daemon 

(gnome-settings-daemon:4544): color-plugin-WARNING **: failed to get edid: unable to get EDID for output
[1336842170,000,xklavier.c:xkl_engine_start_listen/] 	The backend does not require manual layout management - but it is provided by the application

(gnome-settings-daemon:4544): keyboard-plugin-WARNING **: Failed to set the keyboard layouts: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such method `SetXKeyboardLayouts'

Do you have any idea what may be causing this? thanks

Wow, I've never seen gnome-settings-daemon crash before. Are you able to log in to a regular GNOME session? If not, could you see if the regular gnome-settings-daemon works? You might have to ignore dependencies with:

pacman -Sdd gnome-settings-daemon

thanks for your quick answer, I'm able to log to regular gnome session, but the same problem stays, gnome-settings-daemon is not running.
I tried to install regular gnome-sesstion-daemon as you suggested, everything seems to work fine now. any logical explanation ?

another unrelated problem i noticed, is that the menu bar on applications, nautilus for example, appears twice, once on the top of nautilus and a second time on the global menu, how do I keep just the one on the global menu?
Edit :
this only happens with gtk3 applications, gtk2 and qt application don't have this problem. any idea how to make gtk3 apps behave as expected?

thanks again for your answer, and for this great work on unity.

Since you mentioned that the regular gnome-session-daemon works, I looked at the Arch Linux PKGBUILD, and sure enough, Arch Linux had a few patches that fixes some bugs. I've just pushed a change that applies the same patches. Would you mind running "git pull" and then compiling gnome-settings-daemon-ubuntu again?

I'm guessing this is due to the appmenu-gtk package. appmenu-gtk is actually a split package, which creates appmenu-gtk2-<version>.pkg.tar.xz and appmenu-gtk3-<version>.pkg.tar.xz. Could you check to see if you have the gtk3 version installed?

unfortunatly it doesn't change much, gnome-settings-daemon (ubuntu's) still crashes, why arch's one works without problems, I have no idea why.

Darn. Could you post your ~/.xsession-errors file and the terminal output when running any affected GTK 3 program?

running a gtk3 program from the terminal doesn't give any errors, here's my .xsession-errors file (it's the same with gnome-settings-daemon and gnome-settings-daemon-ubuntu)

~/.xsession-errors log

Thanks again for your help!

Unfortunately, you system doesn't seem to be giving any useful error messages sad Could you provide the list of packages you installed?

pacman -Q > installed_packages.txt

At this point, I can only compare to see what's different between your system and mine.

EDIT: If you have the time, could you see if there's still a problem if you create a new user?

EDIT2: I can now reproduce the GTK 3 menu problem. I'll see what I can do to fix it.

Re: Progress on Unity under Arch Linux!

Is there a repo with compiled packages? ayatana repo seems to be dated.
