Re: PacmanXG (Yet another GUI for pacman and yaourt)

It looks like it is written in pascal, what's needed to build it? and is there an english translation for all the russian words, there seems to ba alot of them in the source files.
Cheers

No, there is no translation. Russian words are all in one module, that switched russian interface. Anyway, google helps you.

Re: PacmanXG (Yet another GUI for pacman and yaourt)

Sorry.   But I'm not maintainer in AUR
Three ways :
1) Wait some time until maintainer update PKGBUILD (usually 5-10 hours).
2) Edit PKGBUILD - change pacmanXG.tar.bz2 md5sum 0271f3e799d556d911fd4120589def32
3) Direct download (links are in first post) and extract somewhere (/opt/pacmanxg by default)

Re: PacmanXG (Yet another GUI for pacman and yaourt)

makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD

is a nice workaround.

This app looks & works quite fine :-)

Re: PacmanXG (Yet another GUI for pacman and yaourt)

Tried again and it went fine, but when executed it return with

Failed to launch pacmanxg...Failed to execute child process 'xdg-su' no such file or directory.

So I installed 'xdg-su' from AUR and IT WORKS FINE.

Re: PacmanXG (Yet another GUI for pacman and yaourt)

Thank you for this application. Not an eyecandy but first fully functionla pacman && aur gui. I' m sure it fills a deep hole in Arch space.
Now, some bug reporting:
- While aur is on hitting enter on seachbox application crashes. I didn't see any commandline errors
- While package installing from official repos or aur, clicking on "yes" or "no buttons crash application. No commandline errors.

Also, if you mind to support translation i' m willing to translate it in Turkish.

Please, give more information. What pachages you install? What DE? Have you internet access in that time? If you can do it - give screenshots.



About translation - I want use standart .mo files, but mehanism is not ready.


P.S. This summer has been in Turkey - a beautiful country, beautiful nature, good people. I plan to visit Turkey next year smile

Re: PacmanXG (Yet another GUI for pacman and yaourt)

Thank you minoshi. I' ll test new version. If you still need, i have not installed any packages via pacmanxg, using KDE, have internet access, nothing to get a screenshot. I always launch pacmanxg from commandline but can't get any error messages. Just crash. Hope version 2.18 fixed this.

I'd also like to thank you for your kind words about my country and people. We always welcome visitors.

Re: PacmanXG (Yet another GUI for pacman and yaourt)

Thank you minoshi. I realized that; the problem comes from sudo. I use kdesu to launch pacmanxg as root. I was configured kdesu to use sudo as a root access backend. The problem occurs only if sudo is backend for kdesu. When su is used for kdesu backend problem goes away, Unfortunately, i can't get any useful info with --debug option. It doesn't throw any error messages or debug info to screen.

Re: PacmanXG (Yet another GUI for pacman and yaourt)

not to screen! Run with '--debug' in terminal (xterm, kconsole, etc) and give output to me.

Re: PacmanXG (Yet another GUI for pacman and yaourt)

I mean console screen. No errors, nope. Just kdesu messages. Nothing about pacmanxg. sad

EDIT= I have installed kdesudo and i can confirm that kdesudo will work. It is definetly a kdesu + sudo issue.
