Amaya, Screem and Web authoring apps

I'm trying to find a web authoring application.  I searched through Arch's packages and found Amaya and Screem.  First I tried Amaya - it wouldn't run, but this appears to be a known bug, to do with THITDIR.  I then tried Screem.  It too wouldn't run.  The error message said it couldn't locate a file and that I should restart 'gconfd'.  I did so, but still no joy.   So my question to you all is what do I need to do to get Screem working, and/or what else is out there that I could use?

thanks in advance for all suggestions.
Toby

look around here... if there's anything you like, but don't know how to install I can make an arch package for you...
you can always just use something like kwrite/gedit/leafpad

Re: Amaya, Screem and Web authoring apps

You could try nvu (WYSIWYG), but I suppose it's somewhat tricky to get it running on arch (you could search for some PKGBUILDs in the forum). And there's Quanta, a really nice piece of work,  in the kdewebdev package. But, well, it needs kdelibs. Bluefish (gtk) is another option.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Re: Amaya, Screem and Web authoring apps

nvu looks good.  I'll do as you say and look for some PKGBUILDS.

Phracture, is there any chance that you could make a pacman package for nvu?  Here's hoping.

thanks
Toby

i'll update the version to 0.6 and post the pkgbuild here

EDIT: ack, build instructions changed... here's the working version

# Contributor: dpb <dpb[at]backarrow.org>
pkgname=nvu
pkgver=0.60
pkgrel=1

        cd $startdir/src/mozilla
        sed "s@#CFLAGS#@$CFLAGS@g" mozconfig.linux >.mozconfig
        make -f client.mk build || return 1

        mkdir -p $startdir/pkg/usr/bin $startdir/pkg/opt/nvu
        make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg install

        ln -s $startdir/pkg/opt/nvu/bin/nvu $startdir/pkg/usr/bin/

Re: Amaya, Screem and Web authoring apps

Dunno about the build process itself (whether it works or not), but the proper source seems to be 'http://cvs.nvu.com/download/$pkgname-$p … es.tar.bz2'.

Re: Amaya, Screem and Web authoring apps

bluefish is a nice little app if you can handle straight scripting (ie no wysiwyg).

Re: Amaya, Screem and Web authoring apps

Thanks to Phracture's PKGBUILD I now have NVU up and running (but with a lfew problems, which I'll post later).  One quick question though - how do I go about finding the 'NVU' icon so that I can assocaite it with the desktop launcher I've created?  I know there *is* one because itappears in the ALT+TAB window when I'm swapping bewteen running programs.  But I searched the entire root directory for nvu.png, and no joy.  I guess it must have a different name (or extension perhaps?) so is there a way to browse images (sought of 'thumbnails' equvalent?)
Thanks for all the help so far.

[UPDATE - searched around and found it as an *.xpm file]
