Glom
« on: May 26, 2012, 10:08:13 pm »

Package Glom please - http://www.glom.org/wiki/index.php?title=Glom

I've been using the windows version for a while and it is at least as good as Filemaker if not better.

Is anybody working on this package?  Seems like a nice piece of software.

I agree, but it wants a newer gtk3 that requires a toolchain upgrade on 32-bit vl7

Id like to see it on the repos though

What about an older version of Glom that would only require the gtk+3 we already have?

Can someone else give it a shot though? I did build the postgresql it wants for the backend but i really want to keep coding for the installers so we can get those out.

Good point.  Guess I really want you to keep coding too. :-)

I'll see if I can take a look at it tomorrow.

murphie  you still here.

Before I get started on this I want to make sure the guy who requested it is still around.  This one is a bear.

OK, glom is in testing.   Little older version, so we didn't have to build the entire gtk3 toolchain, but let us know if it does the trick for you,

See announcement here...

Thanks Stretchedthin!

Glom seemed to load fine, but I could not get it to work, nor would it find the help files.  I tried following the online instructions but got nowhere.  This means little as I don't know anything about linux databases such as postgresql, other than that permissions are important. 

I will sit back and watch this thread and, I hope, learn something.

I just reloaded glom.  Even though the two files in the repository seemed the same, except for a "2" in front of vl70 rather than a "1,"  and even though the "1" was the second file in gslapt (usually indicating newer), it showed "upgrade" when I "reloaded" and the upgraded Glom works.  I will continue to try it and report back. 

btw, gslapt now (after upgrade) only shows the one Glom file, being the 2vl70 program.

Stretchedthin, thanks a million.  If this works as I think it will, it will be a major improvement to my system.  Something I've been waiting for for years.

vec7, M0E_lnx also had a piece of this one.  Not so bad in hindsight, but looked like a major undertaking at the start.

The 2 your refering to is the build number.  We rebuilt it last night so that the icon would show in the xfce menu and removed the old one.  Each time we rebuild a package but keep the same version we up the build number.
Hope to have time to play with this and move it to extra soon.

Hopefully the guy who requested it and make some comment as to how it is working.

I tried this, but for some reason, on the 32-bit VL the app starts, but when you create a new database file, it just loops over the startup process.  The problem appears to be that the postgresql daemon is not running.

Trying to run the postgresql daemon returns an error which I have not had time to debug.

Have not tried it on 64-bit

Does this work for anyone at all?

EDIT

FWIW,
I just re-installed to try the 2nd build of the package, and it is not pulling postgresql as a dependency.  IIRC, it should be pulling it.
