Hey folks...its me again
its not beryl, not 3ddesk and not ndiswrapper this time...
its wbar...thats a toolbar making your PC look a bit like OsX
But the thing is that the only download i can find is .tbz2
and i have no clue how to open a tbz2 :-O
any utils there? or comilement help?
Anything that could help...i'd appreciate it =]
Oh and also is there a theme for gtk which looks like X? and how could i get it?

- You open a tbz2 with tar -xjvf file.tbz2
- It needs imlib2, so get that first
- gtk theme that looks like X? Do you mean OSX?
Not sure about gtk1, but there are too many OSX GTK2 themes on gnome-look.org

wow =] hey that sounds optimistic...quite good

I will get the lib and try it and give feedback than thank you already.
Also yes i did mean osx...to enable it on gtk2 what do i need? Is gtk-theme-swiche from the repo enough?
And obviously gtk2-xxxx

Yey...i think i just compiled/installed Imlib2 ^^
quite proud of myself
now its time for wbar =]

Posted by gammelmarakuja on Aug. 23 2008,13:18
All right, i compiled and installed both packages as the "Readme"'s told be to.
There was a thing that didn't work and that was the step in wbar:

make config

it just said there is no rule for that and STOP
quite strange...there was no config file anyway so i just continued and had to relize that it didnt work as it claimed that it couldn't find libimlib2.so.1 in shared library
but when i searched it i found it in the library :rock:
I recon that means i have to install imlib2 dev's aswell right?

It depends on where you compiled imlib2 to - /usr, /opt, or?

If imlib2 is not in /usr/lib then you will need to edit /etc/ld.so.conf so that dsl can find imlib2 and then "sudo ldconfig"

Posted by gammelmarakuja on Aug. 23 2008,15:01
i have it in /usr/local/lib is that right? Or do i have to change something now?
Posted by gammelmarakuja on Aug. 23 2008,15:36
Hm...i did download and compile something but i guess it either wasn't the right devs for it or the problem didn't have anything to do with with devs ^^
I will try Juanitos idea to edit /ect/ld.so.conf and do a "sudo ldconf"
and will see what happens then :)

Posted by gammelmarakuja on Aug. 23 2008,19:24
Right...a reboot solved that problem.  Now when i open wbar it sais:
/usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx/osxbarback.png -> Image not fond. Maybe using a relative path?

The file is there and has permissions. What do i have to do? Already installed libpng etc...nothing helped yet.

Posted by gammelmarakuja on Aug. 23 2008,20:48
well sloved that one by editing the config to use full paths  :)
now what it complains about when i type "wbar -above-desk -pos bottom -nofont"
"using normal bar
Illegal instruction"

But i can see the bar without icons for a few secomds thou.
Tryed every combination and changed config in ecery way notjing big yet?
A log for misstakes or something.
I will let you know how i get on.

Illegal instruction means it tried to use something not available on your processor. How old is your cpu?
Posted by gammelmarakuja on Aug. 24 2008,07:28
Its a Pentium 0 166 MhZ...it was running for ages yesterday, you recon i should just switch it off and wait for some hours?
Posted by curaga on Aug. 24 2008,08:17
No.. If you didn't compile with -march something higher than a pentium, it won't run on your processor.

What does "imlib2-config --cflags" say? Any manual CFLAGS you set?

It might use either MMX or some i686 instruction..

Posted by gammelmarakuja on Aug. 25 2008,13:00
when i type "imlib2-config --cflags" into aterm it says


no idea what that means ^^
what happens when i compile with -march ?
is there any chance i can get it working on my PC...or are there any lighter wbar like docks which would/could/should work =]

Posted by curaga on Aug. 25 2008,13:58
Looks like it just won't work on your comp, sorry.

Wbar is the lightest OSX dock I've seen so far, but I guess it does need an i686 to run.
The next lightest would be Engage standalone (of Enlightenment 17).

Compiling with -march=pentium2 would create a program that only runs on pentium2 or better, that's why I asked..

All right :) no problem but thank you anyway =]
I will have a look at E16 or E17...might be that they do it anyway ;)
