Hallo,

I removed wbar from my VL 5.9 Std. Now I wanted to install it again and give it a chance, but I can't find it any repository. So, where can I find it?

Thanks for help, Greets, Ben

Did you use gslapt, update, search for "wbar" - because it is there.

It is, if it's installed. It's not in the VL repo though.

ATTN: Packagers.  I've rounded up what's needed to duplicate this package.  I'll get it in the repo as soon as I can get my act together. Smiley

wbar-1.3.3-i586-3vl59.tlz and it's sources are now in "packages" repo. Please refresh your sources and try it out.  I bypassed the "testing" repo since this package was included in the ISO.  Please let me know how it works for you here in this thread.

This package includes the VL custom files that are included in the missing package.

Doh! You're right, my apologies, sorry to mislead the OP.

I was reading this post and thought I'd just do a slapt-get --upgrade and see what would happen with wbar.  I watched the upgrade and sure
enough it upgraded to the new wbar.

After doing that, this is what I get in the terminal, when I try to launch wbar.

Using /usr/share/wbar/dot.wbar config file.
***** Imlib2 Developer Warning ***** :
        This program is calling the Imlib call:

        imlib_free_image();

        With the parameter:

        image

        being NULL. Please fix your program.
/usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx/font/12 -> Couldn't load font.

Trouble is I was kind of stupid about it.  I never tested wbar to see if I had any problems to begin with. So I can't say 100% that it was related to the new upgrade.
Maybe put some feelers out and see if anyone else has the problem.

Can't do anything about the imlib warning. The developer(s) needs to correct the code.
I'll need to look into the font error. I got it with a earlier attempt and found the program is calling font.ttf. Which is actually a sym link to comic.ttf that comes supplied. When the link was created it would pick up and include the full path to my "packaging" directory.  Which of course you don't have. Smiley
I resolved this, but am wondering if I somehow uploaded the goofed up build rather then the corrected one?

I'll look into this and let you guys know.

I sure appreciate the testing folks Wink

*stretchedthin:

Could you please show me the output of:
Quote
ls -l /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx/*.ttf

It should output:
Quote
root root 34 2008-08-28 10:35 /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx/font.ttf -> /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/comic.ttf
Don't worry about the time stamp of the link not matching mine.  The time stamp will be the same as the time you installed, and the doinst.sh script creates the link.

I think you somehow had a bad install and the doinst.sh install script didn't run. Try re-installing to see if it works correctly.
Although I'd rather see this package working "out of the box", as a last resort (if the link still doesn't exist) you can resolve this by running this command as root:
Quote
cd /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx ; ln -sf /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/comic.ttf font.ttf

I've studied the package, and can see no reason why it shouldn't work.  Weird.
BTW...  Once the link problem is resolved, your imlib warning will go away.

Please show the out put of ls -l /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx/*.ttf

Sure thing...

root:# ls -l /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx/*.ttf
/bin/ls: cannot access /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx/*.ttf: No such file or directory

I also followed the path suggested with the file manager and found nothing ending in .ttf.  Just a whole bunch of .png icons.
However comic.ttf is in the file just before that /usr/shar/wbar/iconpack

So I then did as you suggested and reinstalled via gslapt and, budda bing, it worked.

I now have this output...

root:# ls -l /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx/*.ttf
-rw-r--r-- 1 ken  ken  126364 2007-08-03 19:24 /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx/comic.ttf
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     34 2008-08-29 10:10 /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx/font.ttf -> /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/comic.ttf

Thanks exeterdad

Odd.  Something did go wrong with the first attempt.  But at least we know it will install and run without any "hacking".  Thanks for hanging in there and testing for me Smiley

The first thing to try if I remember right is to just reinstall wbar.  Look up wbar in gslapt and reinstall it.  That may be all you need to fix.
If still have trouble after reinstalling try this..

As root in the terminal
cd /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx ; ln -sf /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/comic.ttf font.ttf

Hope that helps
