    Hi (i zdravo :) ),

    I was trying to package the current SVN version for Slackware 14.0 (mostly for testing), but I've been having problems with the icon theme generation. Rsvg library is available in Slack, but it seems the command line tool "rsvg" isn't. Anyway, there is a tool called rsvg-convert.

    I tried to make a symbolic link to it, but that didn't really solve the problem. It spew the errors about the "multiple files specified on the comand line". Sorry, that was yesterday and unfortunately I didn't save the log. I will post more info when I get around to play with EDE from SVN again.

    Short info

    Distro: Slackware 14.0
    Arch: i686
    Rsvg version: 2.36.1

    Btw, 2.0 works nicely. I successfully compiled and istalled it. It works with both 1.1.10 and 1.3.x. Although I think I remember having some problems with 1.1.10.

    Thanx,
    Bojan.

    I forgot to note that it works ok without the icon conversion, but (of course), doesn't install the icons.

    Hi (i pozdrav nazad :D),

    Thank you for showing interest for EDE.

    True; guys from rsvg project changed binary name to rsvg-convert and
    update command arguments. I updated 'edelib-convert-icontheme'; please
    download edelib trunk from repository to get it.

    I would not suggest you to use SVN version unless you are prepared for
    oddities; these days I'm fixing a couple of nasty issues with panel so
    things could break here and there.

    Good to hear that :) I'm became aware how some distros still uses fltk
    1.1.x so I fixed this some time ago.

    Let me know if you find issues.

    I actually tried two different revisions. Some icons don't show properly on the menu (and desktop) but I couldn't identify why. I have a theory, but haven't yet checked it. And I used a chance to check for any other progress, along the way. :)

    Btw, I have a feeling there's much more under the hood than what we see in 2.0 gui. :)

    Can you post some screenshots with images from both revisions?

    ;) Are you targeting on something specific?

    Haven't took them, but I plan to try it again soon. :) Would you accept the 2.0 screenshots from Slackware and Debian?

    ;) Are you targeting on something specific?

    Nothing specific. Just an observation. At least, for now. :)

    EDE 2.0 Screenshots

    Debian 6.0.x (stable)

    Slackware 14.0

    I'll post SVN version screenshots when I get around to try it again. :)

    Btw, fltk in Debian iz 1.1.7. EDE on Slack was compiled with 1.3.x.

    Thanks for the shots!

    …but I don't see anywhere issues with the icons you reported. Are
    those issues related to 'empty' icons (icons with white paper), where
    another icon should be displayed?

    Yes. Sorry for missidentifing. :)

    ;) Are you targeting on something specific?

    I did look through more carefully so I can answer this question. :)

    D'n'd on the desktop and panel for example. Or separate panel applet header and dynamic loading of applets. Than, allowing the ede-launcher to run apps that use terminal. Trash and Home icons on the default desktop (Yes it could be done by making desktop files, but it would be nice to have an option to not clutter the desktop if used with other de's that already have this). Something like volume applet from 1.5. I also saw there are some functionallity that could be adjustable via, for example, a new control panel applet (but haven't yet looked into those). A lot of things are currently hard-coded (themes, icons, applets, etc).

    Can't remember what else. But there are already some things started, but not yet finished up. And there is also some functionallity not yet exposed in the gui. :)

    I can't help with those, but I plan to start with writing a small panel plugin at first. That looks like an easy task for the beginning. :)

    Cheers,

    Bojan.

    Oops, the original report was about the building process, not the icons. I didn't mention it before you did. :) I meant the build process fails because rsvg wasn't found.

    Ahh yes, that information _is_ valuable. Try to use
    'edelib-convert-icontheme' tool since it will try to use a few
    different svg converters; icon conversion from build process is not
    updated to use 'edelib-convert-icontheme' yet.

    To make full icon conversion, do this:

      mkdir -p ~/.icons/

      edelib-convert-icontheme \
        <path/to/ede/source>/data/icon-themes/edeneu \
        ~/.icons/edeneu 

      edelib-mk-indextheme ~/.icons/edeneu > ~/.icons/edeneu/index.theme

    Now icons should be available to EDE.

    True, as you observed with details, there are lot of things under the
    hood either incomplete or missing gui part. Some of those
    (ede-launcher and terminal apps) are already reported (which means it
    will be done at some point), and some like support for Trash icon is
    harder than it seems: trashing things under desktop has own full
    specification and I will probably have to add separate daemon process
    just for this task.

    But I'm aware for most of it and many of those are planned for 2.2 or
    2.3 release.

    You can use <ede-src>/ede-panel/applets/demo as starting point and
    there is detail howto about panel plugins on wiki.

    Thanx Sanel,

    I'll take a look at it after holidays (and you'll get your screenshots then). :)

    Considering panel applets, I already got around of it. :) I was looking in the sorce of the several applets.

    Cheers and happy holidays,
    Bojan.
