EDIT: ise solved the problem on another post, the package mesa-demos is required I think, as soon as I install it everything worked...

everything that was there was moved couples of weeks ago when 2.32 was released. Now we are waiting at least the last beta to start packaging it again

Re: gnome unstable repository

Noticed a gtk3 package during 'pacman -Syu' in my system. Does this mean gnome-shell will be packaged soon?

gnome-shell != gnome 3

Still, it'll probably make gnome-shell a bit easier to compile, for those who want it.

I was thinking that gnome 3 = gnome shell; if that's not true does it means that gnome 2 interface (gnome-panel) will be still available in gnome 3?

Re: gnome unstable repository

What's up with gnome-unstable? I only see gtk3 + a few other packages, will there be a full gnome3 test candidate?

I guess that warning goes for Gnome 2 apps alone, not gtk2 apps. I have both gtk2 and gtk3 installed and non-gnome gtk apps like firefox, disk-utility and pcmanfm work fine. I currently use kde 4.6 although gnome 2 is installed in my system. Will try out gnome3 + gnome-shell once it comes into gnome-unstable repo.

BTW new gnome-disk-utility release requires gtk3 now http://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-disk- … /tree/NEWS .

Re: gnome unstable repository

@Wonder: You think that someday xulrunner for Arch will split the spidermonkey piece out?  Its really scary how big xulrunner is when the new css java-based engine for GNOME 3 is linked to and only uses the spidermonkey piece of xulrunner.

it's hard to split spidermonkey from xul but here is a bug report that worth following.

Re: gnome unstable repository

Oh nice, I wasn't aware of this outstanding bug report.  I have just been frequently annoyed when building gnome-shell in the past with the large dependency that provides almost nothing for it.  I tried to mimic Debian actually a couple times (they split mozilla up with an actual standalone libmozjs package), but Debian rules/controls are a nightmare imo.  I'll just keep hoping that the GNOME team will eventually port gjs to link to a standalone java engine library.

Re: gnome unstable repository

gtk3 is a dependency of gconf? How does that work?

BTW, the new icons are really looking great.

Assaf

try gconf-editor


DESKTOP->GNOME->SESSION->reqired_comp.... ->windowmanager     and replace metacity with gnome-shell
for me it's working
i dont know what  GDM do to recognize sessions but if you find solution, tell me

Was gnome-shell removed again? It is not in the repo ... ?

Re: gnome unstable repository

It's not removed, it needs to be rebuilded to 2.91.90 (released today). I'm rebuilding it right now with jhbuild, damn gnome git repositories are slow today, I wonder why big_smile big_smile big_smile. We just have to wait for all newly released gnome projects to be rebuilded and packaged, I guess in a day or two - cause I don't see any problems compiling Gnome 3.0 in its current state.
