Thread: Is it possible: Ubuntu LightDM under OpenSUSE?

  1. #1

    Question Is it possible: Ubuntu LightDM under OpenSUSE?

    Is that possible to build Ubuntu Login screen under OpenSUSE?

    Required packages are:
    lightdm
    gnome-settings-daemon
    indicator-session-gtk2
    unity-greeter
    I understand, that first two are part of the standard repo.

    I've tried to build last two under Fedora, no success. Heavy dependencies: debhelper, gtk+-3.0, indicator3 and some more...

    My 2 cents: You're entering the world where *buntu left FOSS and went for it's own glory. You cannot simply turn around openSUSE to become a *buntu clone. If *buntu functionality / appearance is your choice, run *buntu. But, like said, that's just my 2 cents.

    Offtopic:

    Excuse me, but Novell, was one of the companies (Novell, Fuji-Xerox, Samsung and Xandros) that have bent down in front of Microsoft.

    At the same time Mandriva, Canonical and Red Hat refused to sign any bullcrap, so, technically, *B*NT* more FOSS than OpenSUSE.

    just wondering:

    -do you think anyone here was asked if we wanted the folks who bought
    SuSE.de to even speak to M$, much less cut a deal with them?

    -do you think (if anyone here _had_ been asked) we would have jumped
    up and said, "YES, gimme some of those big bucks too--i will deal
    with that monopoli$tic felon"?)

    -do you think anyone other than the shareholders, board members and
    corporate suits got a cut of the BIG bucks M$ paid dearly for to get
    that ink?

    -and by the way, do you think any of the people here was asked or
    pre-approved the sale of SuSE to Novell?

    -so, if Red Hat made a deal with Ora¢le do you think the Fedora
    Community would need to calmly accept your ire?

    now, back on topic and your question:

    > Is that possible to build Ubuntu Login screen under OpenSUSE?

    ontopic: i really do not know but you are welcome to hang out and
    wait to see if someone does....or, just try it yourself and let us
    know...

    To answer the question. LightDM is in the standard repos since 12.1.

    software.opensuse.org/package/lightdm

    Code:
    zypper wp lightdm
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    S | Name    | Type    | Version     | Arch   | Repository       
    --+---------+---------+-------------+--------+------------------
      | lightdm | package | 1.4.0-6.4.1 | x86_64 | openSUSE-12.3-Oss
      | lightdm | package | 1.4.0-6.4.1 | i586   | openSUSE-12.3-Oss
    zypp it...

    LightDM which is used in Ubuntu was significantly re-designed. Standard package doesn't have all those changes.

    if the Ubuntu re-designed LightDM comes in a .deb file why not try
    using alien to install it and the dependencies you noted in your
    first post?

    you might consider testing it first on your sandbox system..

    I've tried alien. Unfortunately the output rpm package is not installable.

    My attempts to build unity-greeter have failed as well:

    Lightbulb Re: Is it possible: Ubuntu LightDM under OpenSUSE?

    I have downloaded indicator3-* sources, and if I'm lucky, this evening I will build the unity-greeter.

    Sources from here:
    ~mterry/libindicator/gtk3 : files for revision 365

    Any assistance is welcome.
