Linspire Clear Style

Recommended Posts

I am trying to install the Linspire Clear theme onto Mandriva 2005 LE. The source can be found on a link on this page: http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?c...ad&tan=97529096 I know the title says it's an RPM for suse, but there is a link to the source in the comments. However when I download it there is no ./configure file in the tar ball. So how and I suposed to install it? Has anyone got a Mandriva RPM for the Linspire Clear theme?

 

Thanks for you help,

Leo

is there an autogen.sh? if so, run that:

./autogen.sh

then you should be able to ./configure

right...i don't see any way to compile this. i say contact the guy who packed it and tell him his package is missing a configure script, and that you can't build it. it's simply broken!

suse installs to /opt...mandriva to /usr

It is not supposed to compile as it is not a source pkg.

 

Use the rpm at your own risk, or get the tgz and manually put things in there rightful place. If the rpm works (and I'd like to know....I don't have kde), put it up at kde-look for others, just give me credit for re-packaging it for mandriva (so...its name isn't right....oh well).

k, I just booted le2005 and the rpm installs correctly but I like I said, I do not have enough of kde installed to actually test it. Enjoy!

In ubuntu it can be done 2 ways.

1. Use alien to convert the rpm to a tgz, edit the directory structure for mandriva, use alien to to convert the tgz back to an rpm. This is the one I used.

2. Use file-roller (archive manager) to uncompress the rpm, edit the directory structure, close the archive.

 

It is just a theme, no source is needed. You can't optimaize graphics for an arch so what would be the point? Optimize a lib/theme file (.so) for an arch? Again, pointless and nothing to gain even if it is an engine or something.

Since tyme is such a noob and couldn't figure it out ( =P ) for those that don't use rpm and can't find a package for their distro, you compile that source ( http://software.linspire.com/pool-src/los/...spire0.1.tar.gz ) using...

make -f Makefile.cvs
./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
make
make install

<-- NOOB

 

:unsure:

 

the guy needs to fix his package anyways, it refers the user to the INSTALL file, which is just the standard one - referring the user to ./configure - so I was half right

 

:cheeky:

Where does the package refer to the INSTALL file? Where's the INSTALL file? I don't see one. If this is true then I need to fix the mandriva rpm

Oh, sorry, I thought the suse rpm referenced an INSTALL file. I see what you mean about the source. What HJ said isn't in the INSTALL file and and there's no autogen or configure.....so I agree....source pkg is broken.
