How to install Bibletime in a VL 5.9 light system
« on: May 13, 2008, 05:26:02 am »

I received an email the other day asking how my Bibletime package can be installed in a VL 5.9 Light install. knowing there are most likely others who are wanting to do the same thing thought I'd write up the proceedure in a how to.

Bibletime is a Kde Based package and will install and run fine on the SOHO 5.9 version.. but inorder to install and run it in VL 5.9 Light B5 you will have to track down and install several kde packages , some of which are not yet in the VL repositories.

in Gslapt install the following packages before attempting to install bibletime.
Qt4 -4.3.2
arts
sword

then you will have to download kdelibs-3.5.9 from
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/johnb316/kde-3.5.9/kdelibs-3.5.9-i586-2vl59.tlz
and install it manually from a terminal using the command installpkg
if you need help doing that just PM in the forum or email me at davekc1di@gmail.com
once those are installed you can Gslapt install bibletime and all should work in vl5.9 light just fine.

If you are using the JWM desktop after completing the install above and under system click refresh menu
it will add bibletime to the menu under utilities.
Enjoy
Dave

P.S. have not tried in 5.9 Std Gold but should work fine there also.

Would this work for VL 5.9.1 SOHO?

I noticed that there are tar.bz2 files located at the following sites. Would they work (i.e., contain dependencies) or is it best to follow your steps.

Pardon me, but... a complete KDE, as in version 3.5.10, is in the repositories, as is bibletime.  Make sure you have the packages, patches, and extra repository enabled.  You can then install bibletime with gslapt or slpat-get and the dependencies are automatically installed.  I am willing to bet that your problem is that you don't have all of the necessary repositories enabled.

Glad you're back, Dave!

Dave is our package maintainer for bibletime.  He's the man who built the package :)

I did not test it at the time against LXDE , you may have to manually update the menu it that desktop.
Hope you enjoy the package and it leads to much study of the Word.

Thanks Dave
I am way too short of time to even look at manually entering things into menu right now...
I'm using terminal or a shortcut with no icon to start it
However, today I crashed the Bibletime twice while trying to do a word search
(6.0 Dlx, lxde wm) App was trying to index modules prior to running search, and crash...

I'll take a look at that see if I can figure out what's going on.
Oh which version of bibletime do you have installed ?

I gues my problem may be that  I'm using KDE4 and version is as follows
BibleTime 1.6.5.1 (using KDEmod 3.5.10 on compiled resources)

Also, I had been running as user, but am unable to login as such right now, so
I switched to running as root.  Now Bibletime  wants to reinstall library and I
don't know how to redirect it to share with existing user library

You do need the QT3.5 libraries for bibletime the programers of the package have not as yet released a
qt4 version so that maybe where your running into trouble.  however that being said qt 3.5 libs should have been install along with bible time.

As far as accessing them as root , you'll have to redo the reference libs. for root as bibletime keeps each users references separate. so that two or more people can use the same machine same program but have differing reference libraries.

Hmm - i have a problem with not having cross-references in BT, using VL Standard Gold and the latest Swword/BT from the standard repos.  Is this a known bug?
