I am interested in helping provide a reliable TuxType2 package for Vector Linux 5.9 STD and 6.0 STD. I have tried packages from Slackware and SlackBuilds and have compiled TuxType2. All but one have failed.
I even tried TuxType v1.0.3; it won't install due to a dependency issue. I might be a bug in the TuxType2 code since the Slackware package at the TuxType web site installs and the code runs then segfaults.
What confuses me is I have TuxType2 (tuxtype2-1.5.3-i386-1) working on one - and only one - VL 5.9 STD installation. I have tried other 5.9 installs (fresh and patched) and failed. For the life of me, I can't recall what I did differently, if anything, on this particular machine regarding TuxType.
I am willing to put time in to solve the problem, whatever it is, so people who want to learn to type have at least one package available for multiple languages. Test beds are not a problem. I have access to an a large supply of used computers.
