gnome unstable repository

GNOME 2.27.91 packages have been uploaded to the Archlinux FTP. To use this repository, you should add this as top repository to pacman.conf:

[gnome-unstable]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

The packages in the repository have been built in a chroot with testing enabled. Dependencies are mostly versioned.

Note that packaging GNOME 2.27.x isn't completely done yet. Some things:
- gmime has been updated to 2.4, which is incompatible to 2.2. Expect some existing packages to break
- gdm, gnome-games, gnome-user-share, gnome-user-docs are not updated yet. These will follow shortly
- gnome-bluetooth should be packaged to replace bluez-gnome
- update most packages to 2.27.92
- maybe fiddle around with pulseaudio
- x86_64 packages

Have fun testing these packages. So far they've been working fine on my i686 laptop, so there shouldn't be much problems using these packages.

Re: gnome unstable repository

No issues installing the packages but I miss a lot of icons here and there: In the main menu, in the contextual menus, in the bottons etc etc. Maybe I need to refresh/recreate the icon cache? How do I do it?
Example:
http://imagebin.org/63034
Thanks

UPDATE: sorry i forgot to check "Show the icons in the menus" under appearance. My fault

Re: gnome unstable repository

The missing images is an upstream change and has been reverted for gnome-panel. The new code just hasn't been released yet.

Re: gnome unstable repository

Shouldn't we follow along with upstream on this? I don't agree with the idea that lack of icons is more streamlined, but wouldn't it be easier to maintain if upstream's decisions were followed? Those who want icons could just check the appropriate box, perhaps just mentioning it in post-install or in the wiki would be enough.

Re: gnome unstable repository

I got these errors during installation.  I thought I'd post them here and come back to them after I restart Gnome.

(54/94) upgrading gnome-control-center              [###################################################] 100%
Unknown media type in type 'all/all'

Once I started up Gnome 2.27, I found the following:
File Management from the System > Preferences menu crashed (Nautilus), and was reported by Bug Buddy.  Nautilus started from the Places menu works fine.  EDIT:  it's actually nautilus-file-management-properties that's crashing.

The Battery icon in the notification area is blank, but the tooltip is working.  I have the preferences set to always display an icon.

The system beep is silent.  The beep program still produces sound, however.

When I start Tomboy Notes, the icon in the notification area is the Firestarter icon.  When i quit Tomboy, the extra Firestarter icon moves over to the empty space where the Battery icon should be.  Any program I start that puts an icon in the notification area uses a Firestarter icon.

Inkscape needs to be recompiled due to the libpoppler upgrade.  Bug report to follow (if I remember).

Re: gnome unstable repository

As for the lack of icons: that was reverted upstream and should be included in the 2.27.92 release.
About the mime errors: this is because of KDE. KDE includes some unknown mimetypes in their mime specifications, and if the update-mime-database command is not redirected to /dev/null, you'll see that error output.

The file management properties dialog should be fixed in nautilus 2.27.92
The icon problems are unknown to me, but it looks like you have freaked icon caches or something like that. What icon theme do you use?
As for inkscape: this is just one of the apps that need a recompile for poppler/gmime/whatever.

Re: gnome unstable repository

@JGC - Thanks for the response.  It seems that the notification icons have sorted themselves out without any intervention. 

And thank you, JGC, for creating the unstable repo so we can help test this.  smile

Re: gnome unstable repository

Some updates:
- apps are updated to 2.27.92
- gnome-bluetooth, gnome-user-share and gnome-games have been packaged for 2.27
- initial work on x86_64 has started (my brand new Q9550 has something to do now)

Re: gnome unstable repository

One thing I forgot to mention is that when I first log in, I get a notification dialog saying "Battery may be broken", and the panels and menus don't appear until I have clicked the button in the dialog box.  Sorry, but this isn't a good time for me to log out, or I would tell you what exactly the button says.  Not having the desktop available right away is very annoying.

I think I use like 1% of gnome features, but that 1% have been working perfectly (i686) smile

That new release made me remind my disk have bad sectors. This new smart gui is quite cool.

Re: gnome unstable repository

I hope JGC to upload the x86_64 packages, I'd like to test GNOME and see if it works. (I use KDE4, but I 'm curious to see what's going on with GNOME 2.28).

Re: gnome unstable repository

Hey, thanks for packages! Anyway i found that in this version nautilus opens about 1.5 second later than on gnome 2.26. Is this slowdown normal?

Re: gnome unstable repository

I know that - but i prefer not to download the initial gnome upgrade the 2.28.0 when it hits extra - I want to wait until the second release of stable gnome is released.
