Author Topic: Installing gnome on VL 7 standard running xfce4  (Read 1477 times)

So, I want to run a program (glom) which requires updated gnome files, the files in the VL repositories being too old.   I know of no way of individually installing the needed updated files in VL 7.  

Quote
No package 'pygobject-3.0' found
No package 'libgdamm-5.0' found
No package 'libgda-5.0' found
No package 'libgda-postgres-5.0' found
Requested 'libepc-1.0 >= 0.4.0' but version of Easy Publish and Consume Library is 0.3.11

Can I just install the latest gnome in my VL 7 machine so glom will have the files it needs?  And still run xfce?  If so, any clues as to how to install gnome?

PS.   I have looked at stretchedthin's video on how to do this in VL6, but it doesn't seem to work in VL7.

It it going to be very hard to upgrade to the versions that glom wants without breaking VL7.
IMO you are going to want to wait for the next VL release.

Thank you uelsk8s.

I will try to concentrate on kexi in the meantime.  Kexi, KDE's database, is great, but I hate the fact that all data in a kexi table is deleted on even the slightest redesign of the table fields.  So far I have not found an acceptable work-around.  But I suspect I will if I use the program for a while. 

Or perhaps just continue using dos foxpro 2.6 under dosemu.  It works fine for a guy like me, who changes his database mind every now and then, but I think its about 30 years old.
