Hello all,

Trying Vector 6.0 so far excellent work Smiley.

One question is there any chance to have a package for the project management - planner ?

Here is the website - http://live.gnome.org/Planner/Downloads

I tried to compile from sources yet i have encountered the following error - Requested 'libxslt >= 1.1.23' but version of libxslt is 1.1.22. So it complains that the existing library is too old for the software to be installed. This error comes in the "configure" phase.

Any solutions much appreciated,

Cheers.

Just a word of warning that that software is designed to be run under Gnome and therefore may require MANY Gnome libraries to work. It may also therefore be difficult to build a package for VL. There are other project management applications that do not require such libraries. You may want to check:

Hi there,

Thanks for the website; i am aware of the openproj alternative, yet planner has a more effective and easier way of creating work breakdown structures for projects. However if the high number dependencies is a show stopper for having a VL native package, i will stick to openproj.

Thanks for your quick reply,

Cheers..

Installing planner
This can be done. I've tested on two machines one vl-light and one VL standard but this seems to work.
I would have submitted to repos' but I just could not get one dependency to build.
Everything needed is a .tlz so you can uninstall if it does not suit you.  Except fot the one I couldn't build which I
found as a .tgz so you can uninstall that as well.

First we need to install DocBook

DocBook 4.1.2 DTD
found at
http://scrollkeeper.sourceforge.net/data/docbookx412.tgz
This is the one I couldn't build.
and
DocBook XSL 1.48 Stylesheets

able to build find it here....
www.opensourcebistro.com/packages/docbookxsl/docbook-xsl-1.48-i586-1vl60.tlz

With those installed you will be able to install scrollkeeper
which I've build here...
www.opensourcebistro.com/packages/scrollkeeper/scrollkeeper-0.3.14-i586-1vl60.tlz

One package needs upgrading from what is in repo.
I've built it here....
www.opensourcebistro.com/packages/libxslt-1.1.23/libxslt-1.1.23-i586-1vl60.tlz

3 packages need to be installed from GSLAPT
If you are using VL6.0 standard you can skip this.
LIBGNOMEUI 2.22.1 light users only (standard  already installed.)
GNOME-VFS 2.22.0 light users only (standard already installed.)
GCONF 2.10.0 light users only (standard already installed.)

Now install planner from here.
www.opensourcebistro.com/packages/gnome-planner/planner-0.14.4-i586-1vl60.tlz


That's it! Look for "Project Management" under the office category in the menu.

If any other packages could look at http://scrollkeeper.sourceforge.net/data/docbookx412.tgz
and see if they can package that would be great.

I'll be able to upload 'Planner' then.
Thanks.

Great! Happy planning.

One more thing.  I noticed afterwards that the install messed with the mime types recognition.  Most noticeably .desktop icons appearing like normal text files.

To fix this as root in a terminal run..
update-mime-database /usr/share/mime
