I posted an alternative dbus/dbus-glib shared library in the Racy thread in case anyone wants to try the latest firefox/seamonkey/thunderbird(not recommended - use older versions- lately thunderbird is poor - see rob landley's blog)... or anything else that needs dbus or dbus-glib

techno, just wanted to mention... I'm running Thunderbird as my email client and I've not seen nor heard any of the issues that Landley mentions -- is this a Linux-only issue? (I'm still on XP for my main system Embarassed )

you only have to compare the build sizes to figure out that mozilla treats linux as 3rd class citizens, with that said, does official thunderbird work with the nobus pet?

I'd like to try eudore-ose sometime too.

Thanks, Technosaurus.

I wish to ask you if it's okay to install the nobus pet alongside dbus and dbus-glib or will they conflict with each other?

ideally you should be able to uninstall it nobus and run ldconfig, if petget doesn't do it automatically as it should.

(I just made symlinks to the SONAME version which ldconfig should replace automatically when it runs)

I have again the problem described on page 46 of this topic: unable to open PDF files with epdfview, zathura, Foxit. Here i paste dmesg error

epdfview[15405]: segfault at 40 ip b75bcb11 sp b6e7d8e8 error 4 in libc-2.10.1.so[b7593000+13a000]

MuPDF opens PDF well, though!
Don't know what to think....
Bye...!

I have a patch that allows indexed image types to use up to 92 colors instead of 64. Wjaguar plans to implement it differently though. I only patched it because I had a lot of images with 88-92 colors and conversion to 64 didn't always look great and anything over 64 doubled the image size. It's in 1 of the mtpaint threads if anyone wants it.

Thanks for the update, I was gonna do one myself, so that's great!

About the icons, I got them working in Akita.. I just moved the contents of /usr/share/icons/gnome into /usr/share/icons/hicolor, then ran the following:

Code:
gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders
/usr/bin/gtk-update-icon-cache -f -i /usr/share/icons/hicolor/


NOTE: the 'Login to Youtube' and 'Play all video results' still have no icons...

I've added the icons to the main Akita pkg, and added a pinstall script to run the code above as well... Works fine Very Happy

Thanks very much.

Tested with firefox 13.01 from Akita repo, works fine Smile

Now I need to have a think about what happens if something in the repo still needs dbus...
If I can only use nobus as a dep in repo, that 'll be great.
If I have some apps still needing dbus, and installed, then installing nobus over the top might break that app, I guess...

Thanks for locating the other icons, how did you do it??

BTW, I have got gtk-youtube-viewer to work with VLC-GTK 2.5,
so I've updated the Akita pkg in the repo, it no longer needs mplayer! Very Happy

Cheers!
