Have another request for a program I thought it would be nice to have a package for in Vector Linux.  It's called autocutsel.  It's the easiest way I've been able to find to cut and paste to and from a terminal emulator and my favorite editor or other programs.  One way to run the program automatically is for the user to add a line to the .xinitrc before the windows manager starts:
autocutsel &

Source is available here:

Thanks.

It seems a nice piece of software Smiley

To access the clipboard from terminal I use xclip (to be uploaded in vl6 repos in no time)

Xwrists seems a cool package for those long hacking days using emacs Smiley

To make a package, you can use sbbuilder, that will build the correct structure and a basic template slackbuild file.
More on http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=7886.0

if noone extends on that, when I get home I'll do Smiley

I downloaded your sbbuilder program.  Will see if I can get it to work on my machine.  Have also been trying to check the Vector Linux forum and web site for more info on package building.  I know lots of small applications that might be useful to someone running VL Light or on another version but wanting fast running tools.  Will see if I can get any packaged on my end and hope I'll be able to share them with other users who might also like them.

I'd love to know more about those apps.

to build 'classical' apps (those that use ./configure && make) you can try

sbbuilder --package=foo --version=42.0

then move tar.gz to foo/42.0/src

add description in foo/42.0/src/foo.SlackBuild

now as root run the slackbuild:

su
sh foo.Slackbuild

if everything went ok, you should have a package ready to install in foo/42.0/foo-42.0-vl60-1.tlz

you can install it with

installpkg foo-42.0-vl60-1.tlz


if (everything went like that and you'd like to upload it to the repos) {
PM me and we'll find a way to get it into the repositories. 
}
else{
mess with the slackbuild file to see why it's failing. #hint: missing deps?
}

Btw, I started a thread some time ago you might find useful.  Feel free to add your findings

I've downloaded the source code and I'll see what it takes to build a package for VL 6.0.
