081009 fbpanel-4.12-2 [VL 5.9]
« on: October 09, 2008, 06:43:41 pm »

I've packaged a new built of fbpanel for VL 5.9 and VL 5.9.1, a panel application for use with any of the minimalist window managers that don't have one.  We have a number of such window managers in our repo, of course.  The version which was in our repo doesn't work.  This package does.

Package: fbpanel-4.12-i586-2vl59.tlz
MD5: 41510cdb0c37e7b5b55770c8584b03a2
Package Size: 7K
Installed Size: 30K

Sources: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/source/testing/x-apps/fbpanel

Code: [Select]
fbpanel: fbpanel (lightweight GTK2-based panel)
fbpanel:
fbpanel:  fbpanel is desktop panel which provides graphical information and
fbpanel:  feedback about desktop activity and allows interaction with the
fbpanel:  window manager.  You can run many instances of fbpanel each with its
fbpanel:  own configuration.

After testing this package, please take a moment and come back to this thread to let us know how it works for you.

That was the problem with the old package...

Checked that... the executable doesn't go into the package.  I'll rebuild this.  make install with a destination doesn't seem to work with this software.  Grrr....

Third time should be the charm.  I've uploaded a new package to testing that definitely has all the files in all the right places:

Package: fbpanel-4.12-i586-3vl59.tlz
MD5: 8142157ed438c50c66771dca28f76287
Package Size: 372K
Installed Size: 1520K

Please try this one and let me know if you encounter any problems.

Thanks,
