Synapse launcher

Post by pnbalaji » 27. Dec 2015, 18:11

Hi,

Is it possible to create a slackware binary for the synapse application launcher? It is an excellent launcher that uses the zeitgeist engine.

The home page is below.

https://launchpad.net/synapse-project

Thanks,
Balaji.

Salix has tools like this to launch applications which do not need all these deps.
since you want it then READ this READ-ME_1st
For 32bit salix 14.1 Download all packages from here and install them
For x86_64 build them yourself. I do not have 64 14.1 system.

Hi,

I know this is a very old post. However, I tried to install Synapse yesterday and got it working perfectly. Below is a little how-to to get it working.

1. Download the latest version of Synapse from https://launchpad.net/synapse-project.
2. Download the dependency component zeitgeist from https://pkgs.org for Salix 14.2 and install it.
3. Install the c-compiler valac from Salix repos. Easiest way to install valac is to install vala package as shown below.

Code: Select all

 "sudo slapt-get -i vala".
4. Run the following commands one by one.

Code: Select all

./configure                ==> should be executed from the directory where Synapse source is available.
make
sudo make install
I hope this helps somebody.

Thanks,
Balaji.

pnbalaji, usually not a good idea to mix packages from other repos...SBo from Slackbuilds or self-made SBo are an exception.

I agree. However, though I like Salix very much, the one thing that always beats me is the unavailability of softwares that I need. Some examples are:

Synapse
JEdit Text Editor
LXDE Menu Editor
etc..etc..

Thanks,
Balaji.

If you miss a software package, you can propose a SlackBuild for it: https://slackbuilds.org/guidelines/ or an SLKBUILD to make a package for the Salix repository: https://docs.salixos.org/wiki/Submittin ... repository
