bibletime [SOLVED]

Post by SalmonEater » 5. Sep 2010, 19:45

I am interested in using Bibletime in Salix. Pertinent URLs follow --

http://www.bibletime.info/software_installation.html
http://clucene.sourceforge.net/ *
http://www.crosswire.org/sword/software/index.jsp

This link shows that relevant binary packages are not available to download for Slackware --
http://devel.bibletime.info/wiki/Packaging

My experience with Debian-based distros is that the program Xiphos (formerly GnomeSword, I believe) works hand-in-hand with Bibletime and, at one time, was required for downloading software into Bibletime
http://www.crosswire.org/index.jsp

Other Bible study software such as that listed at
http://www.crosswire.org/applications.jsp?section=Linux require Java to function. I do not care to go with Java if I can avoid it.

From what I can gather, it appears that the *Clucene API (quote from website below) may be the way to go.

"CLucene is a port of the very popular Java Lucene text search engine API. CLucene aims to be a good alternative to Java Lucene when performance really matters or if you want to stick to good old C++. CLucene is faster than Lucene as it is written in C++, meaning it is being compiled into machine code, has no background GC operations, and requires no any extra setup procedures."

Any help and/or suggestions to obtain a working package and how2 pointers would be much appreciated.

bibletime requires KDE. What is this SWORD programming library they are talking about?

Sword is confusing -- once called GnomeSword, it is now Xiphos. How this is differentiated from the Sword Project engine mentioned below, I do not know.

I am simply hoping someone has info on how to make this/these function properly using a Slackware-based distro like Salix.

FYI ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://www.bibletime.info/

The software uses the SWORD programming library to work with over 200 free Bible texts, commentaries, dictionaries and books provided by the Crosswire Bible Society.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://www.crosswire.org/sword/modules/index.jsp

Module Add-ins allow you to expand the functionality and your library of resources for your SWORD-based software.
Note: Most software which is built with The SWORD Project engine, that can use these add-in modules, will have a built-in installer that can query this repository and seamlessly download and install these add-ins. Please first check your software to see if it offers this preferred method of installation before manually download add-ins from here.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://xiphos.org/

Xiphos (formerly known as GnomeSword) is a Bible study tool written for Linux, UNIX, and Windows using GTK, offering a rich and featureful environment for reading, study, and research using modules from The SWORD Project and elsewhere. It is open-source software, and available free-of-charge to all.

To be sure to understand your issue correctly, I will try to ask again. Is bibletime based on KDE or Gnome? The description says something about "based on K Desktop Environment". :roll:
Unfortunately, KDE is not the default desktop in Salix and therefore I am not using it, my decision is strongly based cause of XFCE towards Salix ... :shock:

I didn't see anything about KDE, damNageHack, only Gnome, CLucene, GTK+.

That is, until I went here -- http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13.1/ ... bibletime/ -- thanks, gapan.
