Cairo-Dockon

From SVN

Attention

Caution: this version is regarded as unstable and can present fatal bugs
Use at your own risk
And stay updated

Don't forget to remove other releases of CD before install it by SVN


You can install dependences, download sources files from SVN and compile cairo-dock and after each plug-ins but there is a script to help you :
Mav wrote a script for Debian/Ubuntu users (cairo-dock_svn.sh) which allows the installation and the update via SVN and avoids the tiresome steps for the recovery of the sources and the installation. Moreover, the script will automatically install all the packages necessary for the compilation (the same ones as those described in the part "By compilation").

Generic

You can install dependences, download sources files from SVN and compile cairo-dock
    • Dependences :
      libtool build-essential automake1.9 autoconf m4 autotools-dev pkg-config intltool gettext libcairo2-dev libgtk2.0-dev librsvg2-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev libgnomeui-dev libvte-dev libxxf86vm-dev libx11-dev libalsa-ocaml-dev libasound2-dev libxtst-dev libgnome-menu-dev libgtkglext1-dev freeglut3-dev glutg3-dev libetpan-dev libxklavier12-dev libwebkit-dev libexif-dev
    • Download sources files from SVN
      svn co http://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/cairo-dock/trunk/ cairo-dock
    • Compile Cairo-Dock and its plug-ins:
      cd cairo-dock/
      autoreconf -isvf && ./configure --prefix=/usr && make
      sudo make install
      cd ../plug-ins/
      autoreconf -isvf && ./configure --prefix=/usr && make
      sudo make install



Debian / Ubuntu

Mav wrote a script for Debian/Ubuntu users (cairo-dock_svn.sh) which allows the installation and the update via SVN and avoids the tiresome steps for the recovery of the sources and the installation. Moreover, the script will automatically install all the packages necessary for the compilation (the same ones as those described in the part "By compilation").



First installation

Open a Terminal, start by creating a specific directory (for example /opt/cairo-dock_svn) and use it without administrator right:

sudo mkdir /opt/cairo-dock_svn
sudo chown $USER:$USER /opt/cairo-dock_svn
cd /opt/cairo-dock_svn


Then get the script, make it executable and launch it:

wget http://bzr.glx-dock.org/cairo-dock_svn.sh
sudo chmod u+x cairo-dock_svn.sh
./cairo-dock_svn.sh


After that, you have this menu :
    1 --> Mettre à jour la version SVN installée
    2 --> Installer la version SVN pour la première fois
    3 --> Reinstaller la version SVN actuelle
    4 --> Désinstaller la version SVN
    5 --> A propos

And the translation is :
    1 --> Update (your SVN release)
    2 --> Install (your SVN release)
    3 --> Reinstall (your SVN release)
    4 --> Uninstall (your SVN release)
    5 --> About


After pressing "2" menu, you can downloading sources by http or https (proxy).

To finish, enter your own password when the script requires it of you in order to proceed to the installation.

A message is posted with each installation of modules and the final message indicates if everything went well. If not consult the log.txt file in the directory which it's created at the beginning (/opt/cairo-dock_svn). Look at the end to locate the problem, then post it on the forum.



Update a svn version already installed

Open a Terminal, in the specific file which you had created with the first installation (in our /opt/cairo-dock_svn example) and start the script again:

cd /opt/cairo-dock_svn
./cairo-dock_svn.sh


Press "1" to start the update.

If an update is found, enter your own password, otherwise the message “No update available” will appear and the script will exit.

Note: Mav's script “auto-update”, therefore each time you launch it, it will seek the last version of script available…



Tips

You can create a launcher in Cairo-Dock to execute the script… For that, create a new launcher (Right Click on the dock and select “Add a launcher”). Click on “New” and Enter this:

- Name of the launcher (example) : Cairo SVN Update

- Command to execute at the click :
gnome-terminal --working-directory=/opt/cairo-dock_svn/ -e "./cairo-dock_svn.sh"

(change your "working-directory" if necessary

- Directory of the picture :
(your most beautiful icon !)

Validate!!! and just click on your new icon to update your svn version.
