Hello.  What is the slack/vector equivalent to the ubuntu package libgtk2-ex-podviewer-perl?

I am using VL7.0 standard with XFCE

Hi Mark,

I dont think we have that one in the repos. You can always install it with cpan:

$ cpan Gtk2
$ cpan Gtk2::Ex::Simple::List
$ cpan IO::Scalar
$ cpan Gtk2::Ex::PodViewer

That will place an executable called podviewer. If this is not good enough, you can always post a package request in the proper section of the forum.
Nice to have a perl hacker around

I tried the first command, and after a lot of stuff, it ended with this:
Test Summary Report
t/GtkMenu.t                      (Wstat: 512 Tests: 66 Failed: 2)
  Failed tests:  62-63
  Non-zero exit status: 2
t/GtkStatusIcon.t                (Wstat: 1024 Tests: 37 Failed: 4)
  Failed tests:  19-20, 25-26
  Non-zero exit status: 4
Files=229, Tests=5080, 137 wallclock secs ( 4.15 usr  1.53 sys + 86.43 cusr 12.08 csys = 104.19 CPU)
Result: FAIL
Failed 2/229 test programs. 6/5080 subtests failed.
make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 255
  /usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK
//hint// to see the cpan-testers results for installing this module, try:
  reports XAOC/Gtk2-1.243.tar.gz
Running make install
  make test had returned bad status, won't install without force
I'm not sure what to make of this, so I think I'll just leave it.  Thanks though for the suggestion.

I have perl-gtk2-ex-podviewer build...i will let u know once it is ready to install via gslapt/slapt-get Smiley


Add this to your gslapt/slapt-get sources and look for perl-gtk2-ex-podviewer...

PS: This is an untested repo...installing packages from it may break your current system...happy vectoring Smiley
