Slackware :: Which GUI Library Works Best With Fluxbox

Jan 21, 2010

I am planning to develop an application that will have a GUI. The first priority is stability and second is performance. Portability and eye candy is not important. To fit these primary requirements the app will be run under and optimized for Fluxbox WM.

What is the best GUI development kit such as Qt, GTK or FLTK that is best fit for such an app? I mean what is the most stable, reliable and fast GUI development library that works best with Fluxbox?

Slackware :: Setup Fluxbox Non-English

Aug 22, 2010

I would like to setup Fluxbox for a non-English, in this case German, environment. But I'd like to have the command line in terminal windows in English. With my attempts so far, either everything including command line error messages is in German, or nothing. Can anyone of you, please, provide a hint, what's the best way to solve this?

Slackware :: KDE Funnies After Ditching Fluxbox?

Feb 17, 2010

So with 13.0 I compiled the fluxter pager and it come back with 'unable to connect to server' when bringing up fluxbox...I noticed that in KDE there is a nice pager that after some playing fits quite well into an enlarged taskbar, and began to set up my application to remember where it is in the pager, and the size/position of windows...Now, I have it set so that only minimised windows show as icons in the remainder of the taskbar, but I have noticed when I start up my app that all the windows show as minimised even though they are not.... when I click through each page of the panner they begin to dissapear and eventually I am just left with a couple that once I click them (even though there already maximised) they dissapear and I am left with a clean taskbar..

After this minising the window works as it should.The process I have spawns new processes, generally one in each pager window, and each process spawns multiple windows within that page window, so I have a lot of minimised stuff to go through!This is compounded by the fact that I have selected to only show minimised windows from that 'screen', which doesnt seem to work, unless of course the panner is still working on one screen, and not taking into account the virtual panner windows...

Slackware :: Lost All Sounds On 13.1 WM Fluxbox?

Apr 12, 2011

I've lost all sound output. Still works in xp. As root, reran alsaconf, alsamixer and alsactl store. No effect. Run xmms and all is normal except no sound; it plays the file, shows its title, the visual display is active as usual.Is there something I could have done that would mute all sound output?

Slackware :: Start Program When Fluxbox Starts?

Apr 25, 2010

I use NetworkManager to handle my net connections and it's applet that allows me to control everything from the gui is called nm-applet. I was able to edit /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.fluxbox so that nm-applet starts when fluxbox does and away I go. From runlevel 3 that is.

On my laptop I like to boot into runlevel 4 for various reasons. When I start a fluxbox session from runlevel 4 this doesn't happen. What file do I have to edit to get this to start from runlevel 4?

Slackware :: Setting Up Network Manager In Fluxbox?

May 26, 2011

I'm running Slackware 13.1 with fluxbox as my wm. I want to set up network-manager along with the pptp plugin. So far I've installed the NetworkManager and the network-manager-pptp plugin along with all the dependencies specified in the slackbuild packages which I downloaded from [URL]. I could use some help configuring the network-manager so that I can launch it as a regular user rather than as root and I want it to come up in the fluxbox toolbar if possible.

Slackware :: Fluxbox + Cairo-compmgr Questions About Transparency?

May 25, 2011

ive used openbox for quite some time, but recently decided to make the switch to fluxbox. i have gotten everything up and running except for true transparency. i have seen screenshots in which this works, but i have not been able to duplicate the results.

in openbox, all i had to do was run cairo-compmgr at startup and my terminals were automatically transparent, and all the window effects i selected with cairo-compmgr were applied when i chose them. in fluxbox, i run cairo-compmgr, it starts up fine, and i know its running because i can use it's transparency settings to set whole windows to alpha (super + mouse scrolling), and the little "tab" buttons that fluxbox has have shadow effects drawn on them. the actual windows, however are not effected by cairo-compmgr running in the slightest. the windows themselves dont have shadows, and my terminals do not use transparency at all. even my xchat notifications have black boxes around them because not transparency is being used.

Slackware :: Swap Window Managers From KDE To Fluxbox Or XFCE?

Jun 9, 2010

I often swapped window managers between fluxbox kde and gnome back when I ran ubuntu to suit my needs. When I installed slackware, I picked KDE because of the convenient app suite. I don't wish to uninstall kde but I'd like to be able to pick which environment I use when I swap to a GUI. Something like a flag, startx --fluxbox.

Slackware :: Videos View Fine In XFCE But Not FLUXBOX

Jun 24, 2010

Trying to watch on-line videos in FluxBox - most will play some will not. I can't find any common thread re what does or doesn't play. Situation is the same no matter what browser I use (generally Swiftfox). If I switch to XFCE, there are no issues. Using standard install of 13.1 and have no other issues. Have no idea where to look or what to look for.

Slackware :: In Multilib Can The Same Library Be Installed Under Each Architecture

Feb 24, 2011

A certain program I use requires pango and gtkglext in 32 bit. I had already installed both of these in 64, and just now I downloaded .rpms for them in 32 bit and used rpm2tgz to turn them into .tgz files. The application i needed them for now works fine, but I'm wondering if installing precompiled packages like I did may mess with the 64 bit installs I already did, or if they can both be installed at the same time without any issues.

Slackware :: Src2pkg Doinst.sh Auto Library Links

Apr 1, 2011

auto generated doinst.sh files when using the -A switch.

The file will contain link removal and generation for libraries in the package eg.

When upgrading to a new version of the app, the library name might change eg.

So the links that doinst.sh creates is now incorrect. ie. the link is now dead because it points to a file that does not exist. Does one have to regenerate .src2pkg and resulting doinst.sh when using a new version of the package or is there another way to have doinst.sh regenerated without redoing .src2pkg?

Slackware :: Running Multi For 32 Bit Support - Error Loading CURL Library

Jun 27, 2010

I'm running Slack 13.1 64 bit. I'd like to try running multi for 32 bit support so I can run a 32 bit version of firefox using the 32 bit flash plugin. Here's what I did: - followed Alien Bob's Wiki and download and installed all the *txz files. - installed a bunch of required libraries following the instructions on the Wiki - installed the 32 bit 10.1 version of the flash player plugin in $HOME/.mozilla/plugins/ - started the 32 bit 3.6.3 version of firefox; it seems to work fine. - go to about plugins and verify that Shockwave Flash (libflashplayer.so) is version 10.1 r53 and it is enabled. - run "ldd libflashplayer.so" and verified that all libraries are found. - run "ldd /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.3/firefox-bin" and verified all libraries are found. - go to [URL]... and click on "test your adobe flash player installation" I will get this error: Adobe Flash Player error: could not load cURL library - I verified (repeatedly) that I do have what I think is the correct package. How can I fix (or start debugging) this error?

Slackware :: Failure Building Multiple Apps Due To Missing Library Jscore?

Jan 26, 2011

I'm having a problem building some applications (e.g. Qsynth and FreeCAD) with sbopkg relating to an unfound library named "jscore". I've been keeping my system up to date with slackware64-current.Google searches have turned up very little about this library. There is a sourceforge page that has no files and seems to be related to a google hosted script jsCore.js... but I don't think that's what's missing here. I've come across some vague references to this jscore library being part of webkit. Can anyone verify this? I updated my webkit library itself and found no apparent results. Perhaps jscore was removed in an update to Qt (both of the example applications mentioned above link to Qt) as it seems to have it's own webkit library, libQtWebKit.

Slackware :: Texlive's Kpathsea And Cannot Find The Shared Library File Libkpathsea.so.6 - LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Oct 14, 2010

I recently installed a Slackware-13.1 32 bit system and I encountered an odd problem. I had a texlive-2010 package from slackbuilds.org, previously compiled on another 32 bit Slack-13.1 system. I just installed the precompiled package on the new system. However, whenever I tried to issue a latex command, kpathsea complained that it cannot find the shared library file libkpathsea.so.6. I googled a bit and I found that this could be circumvented by setting the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to "/usr/share/texmf/lib", where the library in question actually is.

This solved the problem. The weird thing is that on other machines I have installed, kpathsea had no issues whatsoever and I did not have to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH. The only difference is that on those systems I had compiled and installed texlive, not just installing a precompiled package. Could that be causing the issue?

Slackware :: Run "menu" And "logout" From The Command Line In Fluxbox?

Feb 25, 2011

I have included a "start" (slackware logo) button and an exit button. The problem is, neither of these buttons work. The start button should bring up the fluxbox menu but I have found to bring up this menu is by right clicking on the screen.the only way to logout and go back to the login screen seems to be via the fluxbox menu. Running "exit" from the command line only exits the terminal of course.

Slackware :: VirtualBox 3.1.6 Works Better With KDE?

Apr 3, 2010

The latest release of VirtualBox (3.1.6) corrects most of the problems that I had with Slackware and KDE. If you have been avoiding VirtualBox or KDE because of those issues you might want to take another look.The only problem that I'm having now is that I have to click somewhere on the desktop to get a proper display when switching VirtualBox into "seamless" mode. The rest of the window display issues appear to be fixed and full screen mode also works correctly.

Slackware :: Why Should I Install 64 Bit If All Works Well In 32 Bit?

May 21, 2011

I got hold of the 3 cds needed to install full 32 bit Slackware 13.37 It installed perfectly and all is configured and running very smoothly. I have 4gb of RAM in my laptop so compiled the 2.6.38.4 kernel with PAE support and slackware sees 4gb of RAM. It will really be mission for me to get hold of the 64bit ISO as I do not have have uncapped bandwith (3g - UMTS).Will I really benefit by installing the 64bit version, and if so how?
