Re: gnome unstable repository

libxklavier has changed its public API. In its current form, if a xfce user installs it, his system will be partly broken.

Would you mind to add a patched version of xfce4-settings to gnome-unstable (fix is in trunk)? Or is this repo really just for gnome and we should better patch it on our own?

The gnome-unstable repository is a great idea. Thanks for you effort!

Edit: Done, see http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/18892

I translated the output from my language to english so it's not quote on quote.

I think there's a schema file missing or something... I worked around it putting pairs of

name_${X}:foo

(type String) in /apps/metacity/workspace_names for each workspace, where ${X} is the workspace number.

UPDATE: The following steps solved this for me.

# export GCONF_CONFIG_SOURCE=`gconftool-2 --get-default-source`
# gconftool-2 --makefile-install-rule /usr/share/gconf/schemas/metacity.schemas

However, I still got schemas missing (eg /apps/{evolution,mutter}). Is there something wrong with the *.install's?

Re: gnome unstable repository

why there is no libmobiledevice library in Gnome 2.30? I thought Gnome 2.30 brings Ipod Touch support?

gnome-shell is the lowest problem that i can think right now. it has the most low priority that i can think right now and it would be packed last smile

Re: gnome unstable repository

Αs far as I know, they can, they just need to be placed somewhere in /usr/share, I guess when gnome-shell will arrive in [testing]/[extra], they will appear on AUR.

Re: gnome unstable repository

Ok, I'll be keeping an eye on AUR for those then.

AUR/gnome-shell failed to build for me. What is the currently recommended procedure to run it on Arch? Or alternatively, which other distro has it going atm to try it out?

Re: gnome unstable repository

Fedora Rawhide, as far as I know. I'll try to update the gnome-shell-git PKGBUILD which I maintain, since there have been some changes due to GNOME3.

Re: gnome unstable repository

You can also install it in the latest ubuntu. Just make a usb-disk, boot from it, add the universe repo and install it. Then just try it from the live environment.

If you will be there, could you please write how to make use of it? I tried the receipt that I found on gnome site (http://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell, gconftool-2 ...) but that didn't work. If I login to gnome session (kdm) then I get two open windows: gkrellm and skype (autostarted) and nothing more. I even cound't to logout, I have to restart kdm.

System: Archlinux x86_64
Hardware: Notebook, Asus X58L,
Video: (integrated) Intel GMA X3100

P.S. Also, I'm using testing (so python->python3, python2) and PKGBUILD files that gnome-shell-git suggests (in sequence, gtk3, clutter-git ,mutter-git,...). All were compiled and installed.

Re: gnome unstable repository

@flamelab: so, there is no easy/simple/clear way to run gnome3? Gnome site suggests to use jhbuild to build gnome3 in separate place and run it, but I want to try it in Archlinux 'native' way. Of course, some of packages are broken now on my system (I installed gtk3 and etc in real machine but this is not hurt now, I could use KDE4 though it couldn't benefit of udev/dbus and wants to use hal sad).

P.S. It is strange for me that discussion about GNOME unstable/3 goes here not in its own thread.
