When i choose to save the package to another directory (a home directory /home/shadow) , the package simply doesnt show up there and dissapears. But when i just hit "quit" i can still find it at /tmp/*
I said that at the packages thread,but the icon doesnt have a transparent bg:http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?topic=3114.0
feature request for next versions:
>It would definatelly be great if it has a *.desktop generator for the gui apps. There are just so many that lack a desktop entry.
More Feature requests:
> add the option "install package" at "vpackager-save package" window...and change the button "quit" to "Ok" or "Done"
>Better dettection if the source tarball is invalid (if there is no configure+/make found, a message pops out that this package is not a standart source package and the option to open $filemanager at the directory where it is untarred,so the user can look for a "Readme" file.
>More time at the window where it shows whats going on at Configure and Make ("vpackager Building"), meaning... after configure and make and packaging is done, the "vpackager- save package" window doesnt pop up instantly,closing the logs ("vpackager Building")...instead,after configure,make and packaging is ready,a "save package" or "move on" something like that button at the bottom (next to "Abort" button) becomes clickable and when the user clicks it,only then the "vpackager Building" is closed and "vpackager-save package" (the last) window pops up. This way,if there is an error at make or configure,the user will have time to copy it and find the needed deps.
Great job on the slack-desc utility.I absolutely love it. Its way better than what checkinstall had to offer.
Btw,some minor bugfixes and this utility will definatelly be one of VL's killer apps (vasm,vl-hot,vcpufreq,etc).Something to make other distros envious and to magnet new users' curiousity. I can already see a DW weekly review mentioning it...I vote two thumbs to include it in vl6 (+all the upgrades that slack11.1 will bring- it will definatelly make vl6 a release to remember)
