Icewm install error
« on: February 03, 2013, 01:47:07 am »

Having solved the sound issue with Velocity I can now move onto issue with installing software...

First off Icewm

When I try to install the icewm mods meta package I get the following error when I select it via gslapt

icewmvmods: Depends: consolekit >= 0.4.3

consolekit 0.4.3 is available in the repository for 32 bit so either not available for 64 or a missed depend for the  icewm package.

consulkit 0.4.3-x86_64-1 exists in the repository and shows as installed for me, so I have just re installed it and will now try the meta package for icewm.

Meta package installed, log out and back into icewm, builds menu and selects terminal and web browser and asks if I want to have wallpaper and icons - I say yes.  It says restart icewm.  I do, no wallpaper or icons, no log out, it is there, but grays out when I select it and no option to exit icewm.  only way out is to launch a terminal and as root issue shutdown -r now.....   Suggests that things aren't quite set up correctly.

I think the wallpaper and icons are managed by pcmanfm and would be adjusted in preferences, not sure if that helps in this case. there may also be more than one available version of pcmanfm  to consider

its more the log out facility that is a major issue, I normally disable icons and wallpaper, but that is one of the mods and if its not working then we need to rejig the meta package so that you have the same functionality in the 64 as in the 32 bit version.

Yes, Looks like the package has some issues. if the log out is not working from the icewm menu perhaps look in .icewm/preferances and see what the logout command is ie: "logout"..try just "" .

Under ./icewm/preferances I have:

#  Command to start logout
LogoutCommand="$HOME/.icewm/shutdown-dialog.sh"

#  Command to cancel logout
# LogoutCancelCommand=""

#  Command to shutdown the system
# ShutdownCommand=""

#  Command to reboot the system
# RebootCommand=""

was just a thought, evidently a script, was suggesting you could  try alternative commands or nothing just to test while waiting for someone else who would  know the answer and/or fix the package :-X

That script depends on "gtkdialog". Try running it manually in a terminal and see what you get.

So gtkdialog is missing. The script bombs without it. Did you install the mod package manually, or using glapt/slapt-get?
