GTK+ Applications

Compiliation and installation of applications using GTK+.

About

This chapter describes the commands for the compilation and installation of GTK+ applications distributed by default on the SliTaz LiveCD. The installation of GTK+ libraries are described in the GTK+ libs chapter.

Environmental variable ($fs)

If you do not specify any path to the rootfs directory, export the environmental variable:

 # export fs=$PWD/rootfs

To check:

 # echo $fs

Transmission-0.72 - Lightweight BitTorrent client

Tranmission BitTorrent client is fast, lightweight and easy to use. The compiled package provides the command line client (transmissioncli) and a GTK+ client (transmission-gtk). We install the GTK+ client, the command line client is distributed as a separate SliTaz package (*.tazpkg).

Website: http://transmission.m0k.org/

 # wget http://download.m0k.org/transmission/files/Transmission-0.72.tar.gz
 # tar xzf Transmission-0.72.tar.gz

 La version 0.72 est mal archivée:
 # mv "Transmission .72" Transmission-0.72

 # cd Transmission-0.72
 # ./configure --prefix=/usr  --disable-openssl
 # make
 # strip gtk/transmission-gtk
 # strip cli/transmissioncli

Install in rootfs

 # cp gtk/transmission-gtk $fs/usr/bin
 # cp gtk/transmission.png $fs/usr/share/pixmaps
 # cp gtk/po/fr.mo $fs/usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/transmission-gtk.mo

emelfm2-0.3.5 - File Manager

The emelFM2 application is a file manager providing lots of useful functions, such as the mounting of devices, a text viewer, opening a terminal in the current directory and so on.

Website: http://emelfm2.net/

 # cd ..
 # wget http://emelfm2.net/rel/emelfm2-0.3.5.tar.gz
 # tar xzf emelfm2-0.3.5.tar.gz
 # cd emelfm2-0.3.5
 # make PREFIX=/usr
 # make i18n PREFIX=/usr
 # make install PREFIX=$PWD/_pkg/usr
 # make install_i18n PREFIX=$PWD/_pkg/usr
 # strip -v _pkg/usr/bin/*
 # strip -v _pkg/usr/lib/emelfm2/plugins/*

Install in rootfs

 # cp _pkg/usr/bin/* $fs/usr/bin
 # cp -a _pkg/usr/lib/* $fs/usr/lib
 # cp -a _pkg/usr/share/pixmaps $fs/usr/share
 # cp -a _pkg/usr/share/locale/fr $fs/usr/share/locale

geany-0.11 - Integrated Development Environment

Geany is a simple, fast and light IDE offering colored syntax, tabs, autocompletion, aids to scripts and much more.

Website: http://geany.uvena.de/

To compile and run geany on SliTaz, you must have the libstdc++ and libgcc1 libraries, both provided by gcc (we recompiled with gcc-4.1.1), but you can copy the libraries from the host system.

Note: The force is with you, if you activate it via the option --enable-the-force.

 # wget http://mesh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/geany/geany-0.11.tar.gz
 # tar xzf geany-0.11.tar.gz
 # cd geany-0.11
 # ./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man \
   --disable-vte --enable-the-force
 # make
 # make DESTDIR=$PWD/_pkg install
 # strip -v _pkg/usr/bin/*

Install in rootfs

 # cp _pkg/usr/bin/* $fs/usr/bin
 # cp -a _pkg/usr/share/geany $fs/usr/share
 # cp _pkg/usr/share/pixmaps/geany.png $fs/usr/share/pixmaps
 # cp -a _pkg/usr/share/locale/fr $fs/usr/share/locale

gftp-2.0.18 - Fast and simple FTP client

The gFTP application is a fast and efficient FTP client with a GTK+ graphical interface. Note that we compile without support for a text interface and ssl support. Get, untar, configure, compile and install.

Website: http://www.gftp.org/

 # wget http://www.gftp.org/gftp-2.0.18.tar.gz
 # tar xzf gftp-2.0.18.tar.gz
 # cd gftp-2.0.18
 # ./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man \
   --disable-ssl --disable-textport \
   --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu --host=i486-pc-linux-gnu
 # make
 # make DESTDIR=$PWD/_pkg install
 # strip _pkg/usr/bin/*

Install in rootfs

SliTaz provides only the GTK+ client on the CD. Note that gftp is just a small script that detects the environment (console or X) and launches the right interface:

 # cp _pkg/usr/bin/gftp $fs/usr/bin
 # cp _pkg/usr/bin/gftp-gtk $fs/usr/bin
 # cp -a _pkg/usr/share/gftp $fs/usr/share
 # cp -a _pkg/usr/share/pixmaps $fs/usr/share
 # cp -a _pkg/usr/share/locale/fr $fs/usr/share/locale

To save a little space and avoid duplication, you can delete 'COPYING' (17 KB) included in /usr/share/gftp. The GNU licence is already present in /usr/share/licence, if you want to create a symbolic link.

xpad-2.12 - Mini note taking application

The Xpad application can quickly take notes via various customizable (GTK+) windows.

Website: http://xpad.sourceforge.net/

 # wget http://surfnet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/xpad/xpad-2.12.tar.bz2
 # tar xjf xpad-2.12.tar.bz2
 # cd xpad-2.12
 # ./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man \
   --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu --host=i486-pc-linux-gnu
 # make
 # make DESTDIR=$PWD/_pkg install
 # strip _pkg/usr/bin/*

Install in rootfs

 # cp _pkg/usr/bin/xpad $fs/usr/bin
 # cp -a _pkg/usr/share/pixmaps $fs/usr/share
 # cp -a _pkg/usr/share/locale/fr $fs/usr/share/locale
