[WIP] Cinnamon & Gnome-3.4

Post by fredg » 16. Sep 2012, 18:54

Hi,

Ralvex, the guy behind http://salixos-fr.org/ and http://www.salixbang.org/, is working on packaging Cinnamon and Gnome-3.4 for Salix-14.0.
http://cinnamon.linuxmint.com/
http://www.gnome.org/

Please help him and, by the same way, salix, by testing the packages and reporting bugs, suggestions, tips here.

Ralvex test repo can easily be added in slapt-get/Gslapt, and, for now, you will only be able to test i486 pkgs.
http://people.salixos.org/ralvex/test/i486/

Enjoy!

I look forward to testing the X86_64 packages when they become available.

Hi phayz,

please look here: http://people.salixos.org/ralvex/salixbang/x86_64/14.0/.

For the moment is not fully functional (few problems with folks and pulseaudio's pkg).

How to:
Add this repository in your slapt-getrc's files with "CUSTOM" priority and install all packages named **.slxbg_rlvx., gnome-icons-theme gnome-themes-standard (from salix'os repos) and reboot.

I will make various "meta-packages" for easier the installation: Meta_gnome-core (with essential programs) , Meta_gnome-desktop (with full gnome programs),Meta_cinnamon-core and Meta_cinnamon-desktop. (Even though I know it is not in the politics of salix :p).

Gnome-shell not launch at login, please type "gnome-shell --replace" in alt+f2 dialog box.


For cinnamon please still wait

Sorry to revive a very old thread, but is Salix + Cinnamon possible now?

Not unless you're willing to build everything that needs.
